Stuff I Meant To Post Last Year But Forgot, Part 2

I spent an insane amount of time last night dinking around on this little space of mine.  I've been itching for a new look for awhile and with the help of these guys, I managed to gussy her up a bit.  You like?

Don't tell me if you don't. 

Or do.  I can handle it.  

After she was all prettied up, I started looking for something to post about which led me to my pictures folder.  Where I quickly realized that I forgot to post about a million different things that  happened last year.   Which made me panic in a what-am-I-doing-here sort of way.  Which made me start thinking about how to go back and include all the stuff I left.  Which gave me a headache.  


Instead, I'm going to treat you to a the abbreviated version of The Stuff I Forgot For No Reason At All Other Than I'm The Mother Of Four Children. 

Luckily, you get the picture version.  

Austin was the cutest little balloon traveler for Halloween.  Those pictures were awesome.  I think I deleted them.  I sort of hate myself for that but at least I have this gem, taken a good week after Halloween.  That balloon refused to die and Austin (and the others) had a blast playing with it.  He loved his costume.  For about five houses.  I loved carrying that thing around for the hour that followed.  Totally worth it.  

Hannah and Jared have birthdays only a day apart so for Sunday dinner this year, we celebrated together.  That picture slays me for obvious reasons.  Hannah and the guns?  Priceless.  I'm happy to report that that cake, made by Lindsay, weighed approximately 18 pounds which quickly made their way onto my butt.  It was amazing.  

Did I mention that we hosted Thanksgiving for 20?  Well, we did.   I loved it and already can't wait until next year. My makeshift table worked as I hoped and the food was delish. 

 My girls participated in a play at school thanks to Missoula Children's Theatre.  This year's performance was The Wiz of the West, a take on The Wizard of Oz with a western twist and they loved every minute.  Hannah was cast as part of the Munch Kin (get it?) and Sienna was the cutest tarantula around.   Their good buddy Nadia was cast as The Wiz herself and this picture says it all. 

Man I love those two. 

That's more like it.  Nadia, Hannah and Megan, the three Musketeers playing The Wiz, a Munch, and a Buzzard.  
I know that didn't mean anything to any of you, except the Grandmas, but I feel better.  I mean, if I can't brag about my cute kids, what's the point in blogging?  

Happy Weekend friends.  We've got visitors coming to town and we can hardly wait!

Love the new look!

I didn't get the chance to see Austin's costume at Halloween, that is absolutely adorable!

I'm still a little bit sad that Jake didn't want to do the play this year. Looks like he totally missed out. The girls all look so cute, I'm glad they all enjoyed it!
