Little Violet is off to preschool!

Violet started preschool with Miss Jenni and is SO EXCITED!  She had a hard time last year watching Preston going all the time and having to stay home with mommy!  Here are pictures from her big day!
So big!

And she's off!

Preston starts kindergarten!!!

I cannot believe this little guy is actually starting kindergarten!  He is growing up too fast and it makes me cry!  I was so excited for Dorothy to start school but for some reason I am struggling with my little boy.  I guess mom's are more protective of their son's!
Of course he HAD to get an Angry Birds backpack!

Dorothy's off to school!

Dorothy started 3rd grade time really does fly!  She was so excited to start this year and LOVES her teacher and class.  She wanted colored skinny jeans to wear on the first day and her hair curled!

Dino-Day at Thanksgiving Point!

Allison, Jessica and I took the kids for a fun filled day at the Thanksgiving Point dinosaur museum.  They loved running around playing with everything and having cousin time!  Preston has been telling me all of the facts he learned and is really becoming obsessed with dinosaurs!
Digging for dinosaur bones!

Headphones that make you hear like a deer!

Violet walking across the rocks seeing how much sound she makes.

Sleeping baby!

Preston was so afraid of this shark he would not even walk near it!

A float makes waves!

We had a float in the Salem days parade the kids love throwing candy and it makes us feel apart of such a wonderful little community!
Dr Thomas has to get his little clone!

Park City Getaway!

We had a family trip up to Park City for a few days, we stayed in a nice home that was in the parade of homes a few years ago.  They had a hot tub, pool table, a view of main street and enough beds for us all to sleep!  The cousins had a great time playing all day, the men golfing and the women shopping!
Playing in the hot tub!


Slumber party!

Ruby and I (she was grumpy most of the trip!)

James tried to take the kids down the Alpine slide but ended up getting poured on!

Ruby's first bath!

Sweet little Ruby's umbilical cord finally fell out (and the dog at it, I kid you not!)  So the kids could not wait to give her a bath!  She has a love/hate relationship with bath's if we are calm and gentle she likes them but boy if she gets splashed on or bumped she gets angry!
Violet was sure she needed some princess toys in her bath!

Little helpers!

All done!
