Lance, working hard!!

Homecoming night

The finished product

A couple weeks ago Lance and I helped Kiely work on the freshmen class float. Since Kiely is fresmen class president, she was in charge of the float. Which translates into Lance and I being in charge. It was alot of fun and many hours of hard work. My sweet husband took two days off to work on the float. The theme was, "Super Crew" which is a show on MTV. The kids had a blast and we recieved 2nd place. I think Lance and I were more excited than Kiely.

So you think you can dance

Ballet friends

Kiely and her ballet instructor

A couple weeks ago Kiely and I went with her ballet academy to watch, So you think you can dance tour. It was amazing to watch such talented dancers. If you know me, you know I love to dance. Now you know where Kiely gets her passion for dance. The girls had a blast. I have never heard so much screaming in my life. The only dissapointment was that everyone sat the whole time. I have a hard time sitting when music is being played. I did my best to get my groove on while sitting. We did not get to bed until 1:00 a.m. The girls wanted to wait for autographs, but the dancers never came out. Next year I will try to remember to take some motrin before going!!!!!!

Silveyville Pumpkin Farm

We took advantage of Lance's day off and went to the pumpkin patch. This place is so fun and beautiful. Our family loves going there every year. They have ATV rides for the kids and hay rides. My kids love to use the wagons to carry their pumpkins in. Every year the kids take a while to pick out their pumpkins. Dustin always takes forever. He has to carefully examine each one while Andrew picks out the biggest. Hailey told me, I want a cute little one. Kiely being the most knowlegeable of the kids picks one that will be good for carving. It was a great day filled with wonderful weather and great memories.

Happy Birthday Andrew

Andrew just turned 7 last week. I cant believe it! He was so excited for his birthday. He kept asking me the day before , do you know what tomorrow is. Andrew's favorite gifts were his Nintendo DS and his Giants jersey. He is a huge Giants fan and a bigger Lincecum fan. Andrew loves to wear his jersey to school. Thank goodness for spray and wash because it comes home very dirty. Tonight we are taking him and a small group of friends bowling for his party.

Dustin's morning routine

Everyone who knows Dustin, knows he can be a little bit of a spacer. I had to blog about his morning routine because I find it quite funny. He wakes up by 6:30 and heads straight to eat his cereal. The boy loves his cereal. He fills his bowl as high as he possibly can. Then he looks for his favorite spoon because any spoon is not good enough for his cereal. At this point I have just walked in from the gym and he begins to ask me the most random questions about space or the enviorment. I usually do not know the answers. I remind him he needs to get dressed. On his way up he stops in to see Hailey (Gooey, is what he calls her). He saids to her, " Good morning Gooey" and begins to play with her. Slowly he makes it to his room and begins to get dressed. Of course he usually gets distracted by some toy or a book. I come upstairs and he is about half dressed looking at his Pokemon cards. He looks at me and gives me his great smile. So of course I find it hard to get mad at him. Then he asks me to do his hair. I do his hair as he uses a brush as a microphone to lip sing. By this point Andrew in completely ready and out front playing basketball. He realizes he has to feed ou dog, Mandy. He feeds her and usually forgets to close the door to the dog run, so Mandy runs around the garage until I realize she is in there. Then he moves on to making his lunch which I usually fix because he thinks he can take two packs of cookies. When I pull out one of the bags of cookies, he looks at me again with his great smile and saids" Ahhh, you caught me". Last but not least every morning we have to do a zipper check, because it is usually down. We drive to school, I kiss him good bye and ha asks me if I have any lipstick on. As he walks to line up he has to stop at his dirt pile which he calls his creation. I love my sweet Dustin even if he takes FOREVER to get ready for school in the morning.
