Jake and the Neverland Pirate Game

So, here is the game that William got for his birthday. The kids all LOVE it. It lets them do super silly things. I highly recommend it for young kiddos. (Except for the fact that the "vines" don't ever stay up.)


Because I have a been a somewhat neglectful blogger, lets play catch up with Winston.

At his 6 month check up he weighed 20 pounds 9 ounces. He is also 28 1/2 inches tall.

While his weight is good and healthy, I do have to take him back in for a weight check on Jan. 2, because he has only put on an ounce since his 4 month check up.


He also has one tooth, and another coming in.

He rolls over both directions, sucks on his toes, and is starting to put everything he can get in his hands in his mouth. And he is finally starting to sleep through the night 2 or 3 times a week!!

First Day Of First Grade

Ok, so this should have been posted a couple of months ago. Whoops. I'll try to be better.

Orion started 1st grade on September 3. His teacher is Mrs. Rohowetz. He says he really loves it. I am not so sure. He gets into trouble a lot. Like a lot a lot. For silly things mostly. Like, being too silly, or fidgeting too much. (Yes, I do mean he is too fidgety in class and has to stay in from recess some times for that.) Despite me not liking his teacher, he loves her. So, I guess that is a good thing. Right?


Don't I have cute kiddos?

Orion really wanted to be Iron Man.
William wanted to be a spider. At first I was going to make him a green spider costume, but Wanda had a spider costume they weren't using, and William decided he REALLY liked that one. So I got out of sewing one!!
Oliver for weeks wanted to be a ghost. He makes a super cute ghost!
Winston, is a duck.
And Phil, was Fix- it- Felix. He makes a super cute Fix-It-Felix!
We all went to the Mt Horeb/ 4th Ward Trunk or Treat. I was in charge of helping with the Pie Contest. Poor Philip had charge of all the kids while I was busy doing that. I also sewed this super cute apron for the winner. (I found the tutorial here )
(Ignore my fabulous hair, lack of a bra and pjs. I spent the morning sewing instead of getting dressed.)

And then we took the kids out trick or treating on Halloween night. Philip walked ahead with Orion and William. And I walked slowly with Oliver and Winston. After every door, Oliver would say "ok, lets do a couple more doors."  Winston slept most of the time.

A Visit from the Tooth Fairy

Orion lost his first tooth. This makes me very sad. It means he is growing up, and I'm not ready for that.


We took the kids to see Santa at the library.

Oliver was SUPER excited to see him. While waiting in line he kept waving and yelling "Hi Santa!" When it was his turn he ran right up and sat on his lap. Big change from last year!!

Sadly, our camera has been acting up, and we lost the picture that had all the kids sitting with Santa.
