Brooklyn turns 7!!!!!!

 Caroline and Brooklyn
 My handsome daddy!
 Even the adults got crafty!

It is hard to believe it has been seven years since my sweet baby was born!  She has brought so much joy and happiness to us.  I know that is so cliche to say but it is so true!  Some of the things Brooklyn loves according to her:  tv, reading, cupcakes, warm socks, play with her daddy, spend time with Sophia, and loves to go to school.  We had a zebra/hot pink/ hello kitty/craft party!  All the kids had a great time making pictures and decorating butterfly's and dinosaurs.

Global Wildlife

 Sophia and Mrs. Davenport
Sophia's class went to Global Wildlife for a field trip sometime in October.  The lamas were tall enough that they could eat from our hands. The rest of the animals were just thrown handfuls of this dog food looking stuff.  We even got to see a bunch of deer fight and super cute baby Zebras.


I realized the\at I missed all October.  Here are some highlights in pictures.
 Trent's birthday dinner at Las Palmas

A new dress

I bought this pattern to see of I would like it for the girls Christmas dresses. I made a sample one for Brooklyn and I think the pattern turned out adorable!  The little jacket was made with out a pattern!  Not to shabby. I think for Christmas I might just buy them cardigans. Now that I have a pattern I really like I just need to get some fabric and get to working!  I want them to wear their Christmas dress for our church party in two weeks!

Las Palmas

We had went out to eat and TRIED to get a picture of the kids together. They just wanted to be goofy.  This was November 9th


This was one morning before school. Brooklyn is a great reader and is lately seen with a book in hand. Sophia is getting much better at reading. In the beginning of the year I was defiantly worried because she jokes around so much. Her first report card left something to be desired. Her second one was much better. I love that they love books and learning.

Alligator farm

On November 13 I helped chaperone Brooklyn's class on a trip to the insta-gator alligator farm.  They basically steal alligator eggs and hatch them. Only 12 out of every 100 are released into the wild. The rest are butchered for their skin and meat (they really didn't get into that bit of information with the kids). Everyone had a good time. It was, of course, the first cold day of the year!!  Brooklyn really enjoyed herself and even held one.  The cutest one was the one born without a tail!!  Defiantly not natural but I guess he has a decent life there. In the wild he would have been snatched up in a heart beat. We also learned the temperature is what determines if they are boys or girls. 

Thanksgiving lunch with the girls

On November 20 the girls school had a thanksgiving lunch that the parents were invited to. It was only for the kindergarten and 1st parents. They started eating at 10:30!  I was able to get Brooklyn from her class so all three of us could eat together!  It's always fun to get to meet the kids they play with and spend some time with threes in "their" surroundings.

I am so thankful Trent is patient with my crafting this time of year!  I am in charge of a craft day at church for almost 20 people!  The craft day is this Saturday so now I am bragging everything out to make sure i have enough. It's fun it also very very tiring. I can't wait for Saturday!
