It was Livy's 3rd Birthday on the 24th. So she got dressed up in her princess outfit and we went out. She is such a girl! We had to take her to the pediatrician and it was so great to see the kind of response we got from the other patients as well as the nurses and Drs. She even had on matching high heels. And of course her cake had to be adorned with all the disney princesses, what else?

Micah and I took the girls up to Logan on Saturday and along with our nieces and nephews, Micah's mom and our sister in law, Katie, We had a great time. The kids got so excited to see all the different scenes. It really made me miss living up in Logan. I forget how quiet and beautiful it really is.

After the Pumpkin walk, we went to Oma and Opa's House for some pumpkin carving and lots of eating. It was so much fun. Elsa also had her primary program on Sunday. She was very nervous to get up and do her part, but I think it made her feel better seeing all the children doing it also. I hope everyone is doing well and hope to hear from you soon.

Micah and I took the girls to Gardner Village this past weekend. It has become a annual tradition since we moved to SLC 8 yrs ago. It was a perfect day. My little brother and his wife and also my litte sister and her new boyfriend came along for the fun.

It has been one crazy week. We finally painted our room and got carpet this past week. It took us all weekend to paint, and we had to rip out the old carpet. Disgusting! But it looks great and I love the smell of fresh paint and new carpet. So I guess it was worth it.
We also sold the truck (alot sooner than we had thought) and bought a new car. I am glad that we have two gas effecient vehicles although I am not glad that it is a tight squeeze for us all. Oh well, what can you do?
I am having to pull double duty in Sunday School these past couple weeks and will be teaching Gospel Doctrine two weeks in a row. It is so time consuming. Its like I am in school again and I am having to give a report or talk, with only less than a week to prepare. My nerves are starting to disapate a little bit though and I am getting a little more comfortable standing up there and teaching, but lets face it, I still would rather be somewhere else. It has been a great learning experience for me and has strengthened my testimony greatly, so I shouldn't complain.
Girls are good, I have been trying to get a little more social with the ward members (for Elsas sake) and scheduling 1-3 playdates a week. She has become very comfortable in front of the TV and computer and so Micah and I decided that playing soccer once a week wasn't enough. She is enjoying the friendships.
We are looking forward to Halloween and will go up to Logan next week and go to the pumpkin walk in North Logan and head over to the Wybrows house to carve our pumpkins and eat home made donuts. I love the Holidays.

I just bathed and put the girls to bed and thought that I would attempt to mess around more with my blog site and get some music on here. I hope you like it.

I have been thinking about learning a new skill and with the help of Pres. Uchtdorf's talk at womens conference, he really motivated me. I decided to try sewing. Micah bought me a sewing machine for christmas last year, but other than a few valances for my house and some heming of pants, I have not attempted anything too big until this past week. I made dresses for the girls. I finished Elsa's and Livy's and need a break before I work on Hillie's. It was quite a feat. I am sure when you look at the photos you might think different (they are really plain) but for me it was big. I also tried out my gardening skills this past summer and all that I got were these great pumpkins. Which we will probably carve for Halloween. I am become so domestic. It is really strange for me. But I am really proud of myself.

Elsa has really been interested in photography lately and with the Reflections contest coming up I thought it would be a great opportunity for her to take some photos. We went in the back yard and just started taking pictures. The one picture she was the most excited about taking and the one that we ended up using was the Fire pit. I matted the photo and turned it into the teacher last week. She was so impressed with Elsa that she had her show it to the class later that day.

This week Micah and I will be celebrating our 9th anniversary. Micah and I have made it a tradition for the past few years that we go to Tepenyaki. So I am really looking forward to having a night out together. As some of you may know that is far and few between.

Hope you are all doing well and hope to hear from you soon.
