Happy Birthday!

We celebrated John's birthday this month! He just gets better with age! We are so lucky to have him in our home and lives. He is a fun daddy and a loving husband. Thanks for all you do!
Every year we either go out to dinner or John makes a special menu. This year he wanted Fillet with mashed taters, bread and garlic asparagus. Everything tasted AWESOME! (If I do say so myself).

John is anything but traditional, so we haven't had birthday cake for a few years. This year he wanted a balsamic berry parfait. It was delicious again. It was fun to spoil my man!


Not sure how I skipped documenting Halloween! Kelsi and June decorated their pumpkins by painting this year.

John and I dressed up as the Publishers Clearinghouse winner.  We had a fun party to go to...but then June got sick right as we were ready to we snapped a pic and then got into our PJs for the night (I was already there!)

June was the cutest octopus I have ever seen!

Kelsi was the scariest bat I have ever seen! Her bucket was FULL to the brim for trick-o-treating. She had a ball. I'm not sure though if she prefers to go GET candy or hand it out at the door.

Kelsi started yet another year of preschool this fall. Below is her K-4 class with her teacher Mrs. Dehlbom. She loves school!  I recently had her first parent/teacher conference and her teacher said that Kelsi can write her name better than anyone else in the class and she is the best colorer! She said that she is very happy, helpful and respectful. She comes home every week with a new bible verse memorized, new songs, she knows the pledge of allegiance and of course can read and write all of her letters. She also knows the numbers up to 100. She tries to read almost everything she sees....what are mom and dad going to do when we can't spell in front of her anymore?

 Thankfully, her teacher has not seen the crazy, picky, tantrum Kelsi that mommy gets to see at home she makes a mistake (like accidentally going out of the lines). She saves that just for her mommy.
 She really is a happy and helpful girl. She is a great big sister and I am so lucky to have her as my oldest daughter.
