I looked out the window and what did I see......

144 Popcorn Balls made by Skyler, Kip, & Me!
-This last Sunday we had our Primary Program, which I must admit went quite well. We had 144 kids to place on the stand and that was quite tricky, but through it all and the only 2 practices that we did have..the program went unbelievable(thanks to lots of prayer)! So after the program we passed out the popcorn balls to the kids to let them know how much we apprecitated them. I had many people come up and ask me for the recipe so I decided that it was blog it is (I got the recipe from Kip so I can't take the credit).

DeMi LeVaTo...

So the reason why we went to the fair on Sat. was because we had VIP seats to see Demi Levato perform. It was filled with little school age girls screaming and yelling (sky was a good sport). For those of you who don't know who Demi is she is like a famous performer on the Disney Channel; equal to the Jonas Bros. She starred in Camp Rock with them. Anyways, Mckenzie loved it, and I thought she was a great perfomer for her age! She actually sang to Mckenzie a few times and held her hand and tossed her hair....she thought that was so cool! Not quite old enough to know what is going on yet! But she sure is cute!

BiG fReSnO fAiR....

So every year since living here in Fresno we try to make it to the "Big Fresno Fair". Last year we went only to see Chris Daughtry perform. This year we thought the girls would like it. And they did, we went on a Sat. and it was super crowded. Of course you have to try the fair food, this sign made me laugh everything was fried. This monster dog that we got was good the first few bites and then not so much (look at the size of that thing?) Mckenzie got to pick four rides to go on after Skyler tried four times to try and win her a goldfish, that never happened. She had a hard time getting on the first ride since parents we not allowed to ride, but after she loved it and wanted more.... You would think she would be riding the colossus or something with her hands up like that!

cHiLdReNs MuSeUm..

when your livin' in a van down by the river.... Kaylee would not get out of the drivers seat of this cool shaggin wagon. She thought she owned it! This was Mckenzie's favorite station. The Pizza Factory. She loved making the pizzas and taking orders and using the cash register, I had to pry her away from it to go and see what else was there to look at. When we discovered the medical room, Mckenzie loved playing with the skeleton and all of the medical equipment. 
For a preschool fieldtrip we went to a Children's Museum. It is about 45 mins away from our house. So I decided to bring Kaylee and she loved it just as much as Kenzie. It was a fun filled day.

Thanksgiving Day...

Thanksgiving has come and gone, and so has my family. We were so blessed to be able to have them come out from Utah to join us (even if it was for 3 short days). We had so much fun just being together and hanging out. Steve made the turkey which was really impressive and the rest of us all pitched in to make the meal a delight. Bette's yams are always one of the favorites of the meal.We also got more aquainted with the WII, especially Sky's g-pa. He was so fun to watch at tennis.. We did miss Kip & Katie who were in Utah and my bro. Robby (who is now devoting his life to delivering christmas packages for Fed Ex..who knows he may just drop something by at your house! I love the holidays and I am so grateful to be able to share it with those I love most!
