101 Dalmatians

This month has been such a busy month, as you can tell by all of my posts!

This fall Olivia decided to try out for a local childrens theatre instead of playing a sport. The production they presented was 101 Dalmatians. It was a one act play that was put on by children ages 7 to 14.

How do you like those puppy ears!?!

I must admit, I'm a little more than glad that it's over. It was a lot of time. But it really was so much fun!

Piano Recital

Thursday, November 19th, Olivia had her 2nd piano recital. She played Festive Sonatina by Nancy Faber. She really did a wonderful job, just one little stumble at the very end. Olivia has really loved learning to play and I have loved listening!

November Birthdays

I took Olivia and Emily to see the musical Wicked in October. After seeing that, Emily requested a Wicked cake. This is what I came up with!

Olivia turned 10, Double Digits! And Emily turned 8, another baptism!

Emily's favorite present by far was the doll Grandma sent her. Grandma also sent a dress for her and the doll that matches. Audrey was so jealous!!

Olivia's favorite present was a doll bed for her doll. Grandma scored this year on presents! Probably next favorite was all the books she got.


Audrey started our Halloween with her first lost tooth! She was soooo excited to finally loose it. She couldn't wait to go to bed so that the tooth fairy could visit.

My girls looked so festive in their Halloween shirts!

Dressed up! Audrey wanted to be a GREEN witch, Emily was her black cat, Marcella finally decided on Sleeping Beauty for the second year in a row, Olivia was Susan from Narnia. She even carried a pretend bow and arrow. Rylee was a Chick-fil-a cow and their cousin Mikey was Yoda. Too cute!

Rylee was so stinkin' cute!
But her favorite part of Halloween was riding in the wagon with her cousin and being given candy!
