Little Ballerina

Tegan has been taking ballet/tap since September and she really enjoys it. SHe loves to go see Miss Neta(her teacher) and her friends in her class. She is really starting to remember how to do everything she learns at class. I was able to catch some pictures and video of her today and glad I did because she did really good today.

Who's Got a Beard That's Long and White??




"Santa's got a beard that's long and white....Who comes around on Christmas night?? Santa comes around on Christmas night!!"

Tegan has been soooo excited about getting to sit in Santa Claus' lap to tell him everything "he wants to bring her"--as she says. She has asked everyday since Thanksgiving, if not before, if we are going to go sit in Santa Claus' lap. She has said everyday the things she is going to ask him for. She has it all rehearsed & told him exactly like she tells anyone else who asks her what Santa Claus is going to bring her. Today was the day we got to sit in Santa's lap(we had to wait b/c I was working on their outfits for their picture with Santa). It was our turn and Tegan runs right up to him and jumps into his lap...she was so excited. Carley was the opposite though--- we placed her on his lap and she went to crying so we picked her up and let Tegan stay and speak with Santa for a minute. I went back to try again with Carley, adn the same, so I sat down and put her in my lap and sat beside Santa...then Terrel came and sat in front and we got a great family picture with Santa!!! We had to do whatever would work so we could have Carley in the picture too....and the only way she was doing it, was if I was holding her! We had a great time and can't wait for Christmas morning to see the girls' faces when they see everything Santa Claus brings them!!

"Thankful" Family Home Evening

On Monday, November 23 we had a special FHE on being thankful. We had a short lesson on how we are supposed to be thankful for things and how Heavenly Father wants us to be grateful. We then made a "Thankful Turkey". I went ahead and made the turkey's body and glued it on paper, then I cut out a bunch of different colored feathers. Each of us got one feather each and wrote something we are thankful for. I cut out enough feathers for the week leading up to Thanksgiving Day, so each day we will write one thing we are grateful for on one of the turkey's feathers. After we did the turkey we hung it up on the wall to be seen all week long. We then took Reese's pieces for our 'dessert' and went around a spoke about the things we are thankful for and why we are thankful for those things. Tegan truly understood what the meaning of our FHE was and she was so cute when we were taking turns with the Reese's pieces saying things we are thankful for. She said "Jesus" the first time around...we then went and said a few other things...and it came back to her on about her 3rd of 4th time and she said "Jesus" again... I told her she already said Jesus, so she then said ummm... "Jesus Christ". It was so cute and so priceless!!!

DANCING QUEEN

Tegan had ger first ballet/tap class today. She was so cute with her leotard, tights, and shoes on and her hair in a bun. She was excited about going to ballet. She did pretty good for her first time ever....Miss Neta(the teacher) said they girls did great in tap but not so good in ballet today.... they kept running back and forth during ballet---so they didn't get a sticker... Next week they can try again :) I hope she likes ballet and tap and maybe she'll develop a love for it and want to do it forever!!!

We've been pretty busy lately!!! First, we've been really enjoying our new house.... trying to get it fixed up a little bit at the time. Still trying to get it decorated but I know that's going to take a while to do :):)
The girls are growing up so fast. Tegan has gotten so tall this summer. She can finally pedal her tricycle all by herself....we've got the kind that has the parent handle attached to the back that allows the parent to steer if needed....so she hasn't wanted to pedal but she does now and she loves it!!! She still can't get enough of her baby sister and loves her soo much--- a little too much most of the time---she tries to be soft but doesn't realize she is hurting Carley sometimes with her great big hugs and kisses :):) Carley is now 11 months!!! Wow...this year has really flown by...she will be ONE on Sept 25!!! CRAZY :):) She is now taking about 6-8 steps and when she falls down she can get herself back up without holding onto anything. She always has something that gets in her way (i.e. --TEGAN). We can't wait for her to start walking all on her own.
We're EXTREMELY excited about this time of year b/c the weather is about to get cooler but not too cold.... and it's FOOTBALL SEASON!!!!! We love football season. We love going to and watching the games. It's my favorite time of the year :):) GO DAWGS!!!!
