Liv's first dance competition

Liv had her first competition! Her class wasn't actually competing like the older girls were!! Everyone her age got a trophy!!

Getting lined up with the other little dancers!! This was the first performance where Liv just went right to her group and wasn't nervous!
Afterwards, she was pretty proud of her trophy!!
I posted the videos on face book -- I was having problems posting them on here.

Summer/Fall Catch up Pictures

Here is a little catch up to our summer and fall -- I am hoping to try and keep up more on the blog -- I need to get a better camera for one! But any who here you go!!
Here are some photos from Halloween I am horrible and didn't take any pictures of the kids in their costumes. During the day we went to Liv's school for her Halloween party and then we went Trick or Treating with the Schiffman's that night.

We went to the fair. Alivia actually performed for dance and we have video of it but can't get it off our camera. So hopefully soon!

We spent 4th of July's at my moms. It's close to the big show!
Alivia's friend Mya spent the night with us!
 Austin enjoyed playing with sparklers
Austin also has taken a love to the game of baseball. He loves his mitt and he loves the movie the Sandlot
 Austin watching the tractors working all summer and fall! 
One day I couldn't find him anywhere, I didn't think to look in the driveway -- he was just standing on Mitch's trailer watching the tractor!
 We cleaned out a lot of old boxes that had been packed for quite awhile. This used to be my doll when I was younger I took this doll everywhere with me. Alivia has now taken over. She sleeps with Stephanie (my doll) every night. Alivia says that it makes her fell safe!

We were able to visit Shoshone Falls which was pretty cool! The kids loved it! 
Alivia loved hiking everywhere! Austin liked to be carried!!
 Papa Rick and Letty joined us!!
 Alivia had her first session of swim lessons!! She really enjoyed it and did really well.

My sister Melissa and her Daughter Oni came to visit for a few weeks in August. We had a lot of fun having visitors at our new house. We don't see Melissa and Oni often since they live in California, but we try to take every opportunity we can to get together every few years!!  
Oni - 7 years old

Alivia and Oni with Sparky the fire dog.
Austin and his shoes. I guess I should just be happy that he is wearing some.
 While they were here we decided to go see Cinderella at Mystique. We took Kamryn with us.
Alivia did not want a picture with the step sisters for some reason.

After the play the girls went on stage and had their turn.

They also let them sit in the carriage but they had to do it one at a time.

Talking with the fairy godmother.

We actually almost didn't even get a picture with Cinderella but thanks to Oni, she stopped her on her way out.
Austin getting ready to ride the Quad (what the Californians called it) or teh 4 wheeler (which us Idahoans called it)
Waiting their turn

Oni and me on the 4 wheeler.
Austin and me -- He is a crazy driver.

The Giz
Melissa and Oni -- I think this the only picture I got of Melissa.

All the kids -- Don't worry we didn't let them take it out on their own.
Austin, Liv and I
Oni -- saying Peace out til next time.
