My little helper

This morning Jeff took Sam to her skating practice. In the meantime, I wanted to set up the Christmas tree...Anaïs wanted to help and did such a good job.
She really enjoyed putting the ornaments on the tree, one by one.

All done!

This year, Santa is coming to our house a few days early because we are going on a Caribbean vacation to St Thomas. We leave December excited!!!

Thanksgiving school party

Today was Sam's classroom Thanksgiving party. Unfortunately, we had to miss Anaïs' because it was yesterday and she was sick and did not go to school.
Sam's party was pretty low key. They made a craft (a Thanksgiving wreath), ate pizza since it was pizza Friday and read a story about Thanksgiving.

When I went to pick up Anaïs in her classroom she showed me a turkey they had made with an apple and marshmallows and wrote on it "I am thankful for Christian"...her boyfriend. LOL

She loves this boy and isn't afraid to say it, here is the cute couple:

They are on a school break now and have a whole week off, which will be nice!

Cute cheerleaders.

Tonight, Sam had her school performance. All the girls in her class had to dress as cheerleaders and the boys as baseball players. It was so cute.
She did great and most importantly has a lot of fun.

Halloween fun.

This year was a great Halloween. It was the first year Anaïs really understood the whole concept. They celebrated Halloween at school and it was so great to be there with them. I was in Anaïs' classroom party but unfortunately could not volunteer in Sam's classroom party as her teachers requested only four parent volunteers and they beat me to it.
Anaïs' classroom party was really cute, they read a Halloween story, decorated pumpkins and cookies and had a couple game stations. They also did a parade and visited all the classrooms.

Of course, the best part was when we visited the second graders, Sam's class. Here is Sam as a pirate very excited to see us. :)

Here is Sam and her very good friend Summer:

Anaïs just loves hanging out with the second graders...

Then in the evening we went down to Salt Lake to go trick or treating with the cousins in Jeff's mom's neighborhood.

Here is Anaïs about to go experience trick or treating for the first time, she got the idea pretty quickly and did a good job at saying "trick or treat".

Fun times! Kind of glad Halloween is over though...
