Princesses and Superheros Party

Kaylinn's 4th birthday party was a princesses and superheros theme at the gym of their church. The kids played with balls and bikes and jumped in the bounce house for fun.

Mrs. Tuley made some delicious chocolate covered pretzels that ALL of the Halls enjoyed.
The adorable cake was made by Kaylinn's grandma.
The suprise was when you cut into the cake and found these amazing 6 layers of colorful goodness.
2 of the 3 girls decided to take a swing at the pinata.

Tea Party

Sydnie had her 4th birthday party at Tea for Two Tearoom. It was a party just for the girls so we left Daddy and Carter at home. They started out by dressing up in beautiful gowns and an assortment of jewelry.

Then they had their nails painted with some very sparkly polish.
They gave them real teapots and teacups filled with "tea" i.e. pink lemonade.
Aubrey loved sipping her tea.
Emery loved filling up her teacup.

Happy Halloween!

We decided to stay at home for Halloween this year and enjoy our last one in Highland Timbers subdivision. It was the first time we have gone trick or treating since having children. Emery loved it, Aubrey hung back until the door opened and then she would come get the candy and Lily started off strong but ended up sitting in a stroller by the last few houses. We collected plenty of candy between the three of them and we quickly discovered how much they LOVE it. Lily loves M&M's, Emery loves lollipops and Aubrey loves candy bars.
MIMI and PawPaw stopped by to check out Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

We had dinner next door in the Hartley's driveway before we started trick or treating.

Halloween Playdate

The Michaelis' hosted our annual Halloween playdate. Shannon took pictures of all of the families dressed up. This one was taken right when we got there before...
...they set up the background.
The kids had a great morning of playing with some of their friends that they don't get to see very often. It had rained a lot the day before so all of the fun had to be inside......even swinging.
My kids really loved playing with those little plastic balls.

Walk-A-Thon and Parade

The Thursday before Halloween was a busy day at school for us. First, all three girls participated in the Walk-A-Thon which is the school's only fundraiser for the year. The kids go to the gym and walk, skip, run, crawl and other fun things around some cones for a few minutes. Then they leave with a certificate, cookie and toy. I volunteered to help with this event so I could watch each of them.
This is Aubrey's class getting instructions from their teacher before they begin.

What a good listener!

Lily's class had pajama day. Here she is with some of her friends in her class.

Lily didn't love the crawling part of the Walk-A-Thon.

Emery's class had to dress like a circus animal. It worked out perfectly that we already had the bear costume. She is the one holding the teacher's hand.

The Preschool 3's had a circus parade at the end of the day. Carter and I watched as the kids walked up and down the hall dressed in adorable hats and bow ties while carrying fun noise makers. Here is Aubrey's teacher, Mrs. Chicas, leading her class in the parade.

They also had their faces painted.

Mrs. Chicas didn't want the other Hall kids to feel left out so she painted their faces also.
