I shake you warmly by the hand!

I was an awesome mom yesterday. We went to the new library grand opening. We made a craft and read books for a while. They had these super cute built in reading nooks that the kids loved. We also listened to story readings by the local principals. Alayna thought in was so funny because Masen's principal was a character in the book he was reading. Afterwards we went outside a had snowcones.

I also brought the kids to a play that some of the local children put on at the theater. They performed Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I was worried that they wouldn't sit through it and get stir-crazy but Masen and Layna did pretty good. The play was super cute! One of Layna's friends was an umpa-lumpa. I asked if they want to be and in the next one but Masen said he gets stage fright. Layna said she wants too so maybe, if our schedule lets us I will.

Jeremy was working nights so he wasn't able to come with us.. But today has be declared family fun day (#2) and we are all going to spend the day in Carlsbad. I'm looking forward to another busy day. :)

Over the weekend we got our first snow of the season. Snow doesn't last very long over here but at least we get some. Alayna said we needed to put up our Christmas tree but I told her we need to make it threw thanksgiving first.

Jeremy has lit our fireplace! I love love love it! I think its my new favorite part of our house. It makes me more excited for Christmas!

On Saturday we took the kids and one of Masen's friends to the park to go sledding. Masen had fun but was over it after about half an hour. The hill we found wasn't very big or steep so next time we will have to go somewhere else. But it was perfect for Layna! She had a blast and was trying to do tricks. She was up and down that hill non stop until we left.

Lookie!! I got a picture of Jeremy smiling!!

Why do they have to grow up so fast?!!?

After two weeks of wiggling, Masen has finally lost his first tooth. I thought it was pretty graphic and I was more worked up about him pulling it out then he was. I am just so impressed on how brave and calm he was even though I was freaking out behind him. He just reached in and pulled that thing out!
I remember when Masen was little and all he had was those two bottom teeth. He ate vanilla wavers by scrapping them along those two little teeth. Now one of those teeth are in a ziplock baggy under his pillow!

Today was Alayna's very fist day of preschool! I drove her to school and hung out for a while. Today she did puzzles, had music class and colored. I left after the first hour because she really didn't need me there. She did so well. I can't believe that I'll be home alone three hours a day five days a week! I'm going to be so lonely!! At least I'll have Paris to hang out with! I'm hoping that I'll be able get my chores done and start running again.

Sweet October

Masen has turned SEVEN!! Where has the time gone?? Has it really been seven years since I first held this sweet baby? I can't believe it.We had a simple birthday party and I brought cupcakes to Masen's class.

Football is finally over! With the practices and games it made our week so busy. Masen improved a lot and learned a ton. I didn't like how little the coach chose to play Masen during games so I don't know if I would put him in again next year. Masen goes to boy scouts once a week and he REALLY likes it. I'm glad that he's found something he has a passion for. 

For Halloween we went trunk-or-treating at the LDS church with Staci and her kids! The kids played games and we had a BBQ. The next day we went trick or treating around the neighborhood a little bit.I wanted to meet more of the neighbors. We have more candy than anyone would ever need!  Alayna was Princess Celestia from My Little ponies and Masen was a Pirate. He really thought he was hot stuff with the eyeliner and goatee!

Thats it for now! Tomarrow were all going to Joe town and the valley for my grandma's wedding! We can't wait to see everyone!!

Keeping up with the Petersens!

So heres a quick update on us!

Layna had her ballet recital a few weeks ago. She had three performances and she did pretty good. I only watched the first and last one because they kinda sprung the middle one on us and the tickets were kinda expensive.  Hopefully Ill be able to post a video of it soon. I have never been so proud of my little girl. Watching her dance on stage is something that I'll always remember and treasure forever. 

Masen had his kindergarten graduation and Bary and Sharon came up to watch. His class sung about a zig-zagging little puppy. I can't believe that he will be in first grade next year!! We really enjoyed having Bary and Sharon here. We don't get a lot of company here so their visit was a treat. The boys went motorcycling whille the girls just hung out at home. We had a smorie roast in the back yard and discovered that Masen is a little pyro! Staci and Aaron came over with the kids and joined us for a whille. 

Now school is out for summer and we hope to find somethings to do to keep the kids busy and my sanity. I plan on taking the kids to the splash pad, a beach day at the lake, hopefully at least 1 or 2 visits to Joe Town, and our San Diego trip!! Happy Summer!!
