History Day and Halloween

Getting my kids dressed up stresses me out.  I don't know why, but It is hard for me.  I did all that work and then I didn't even take pictures of them!!!  I guess I did take one.  Just one, of Thomas after school on History Day.  

There was a photo booth at our ward Halloween party, so the older kids and I got some pictures in our costumes there.  Thomas was a Quidditch player (he made his own broom), Nicholas was a wizard (he carved his own wand), Estella was a blue fairy, and Alexander was a panda.

Estella Turns 6

Estella was so excited to have a birthday party!  We decided to do an art party and I think everyone had a lot of fun.  I didn't take many pictures because it was CRAZINESS helping everyone do their projects.  We made glow in the dark bracelets, folded origami ninja stars, did spin art, and marble art.  We also played a few games and ate ice cream cones.  Happy birthday sweet Estella Belle!

Nori Learning to Walk

Eleanor is in no hurry to start walking.  I know she can do it because I catch her taking steps when she is all alone and thinks no one is watching.  She rarely tries to take steps when we encourage her to do it.  Last week after family home evening, she was feeling agreeable and started playing the "Walk to Mommy, Walk Back to Daddy" game.  I sent Thomas and Nicholas to grab the camera and video camera and they caught a few pictures for me.  

These first two were later that evening.  She loves to pull books off the shelf.

Jackson's Phone

Jackson is even worse than I am at downloading pictures off his phone.  I think most of these are 2 years old!
