Show and tell at Beanie's school! Of course he wanted to bring Petie! He was a huge hit!

Beanie started attending school, on Dec. 5th, after homeschooling for the last couple of years. He loves it and it has been a great fit for him :) He just decided one day that he wanted to go to school! It took everyone by surprise, but it was a great choice for him!

They have so many fun gymnastics activities here. This is Beanie's first class that he has truly enjoyed and stayed all by himself. We are very proud of him.

Good-bye Home sweet Home!

We moved out on the 14th of November and
the house was demolished on the 26th!
Brady watched it go down, but there is no way
that I could do it. Too sad!

Jango Fett

Jango Fett, originally uploaded by heatherplong.

Beanie was Jango Fett and he loved it!! He played with that outfit constantly and was soooooo excited when we saw it at Target. He was originally planning on being Batman again this year, but then he saw Jango Fett at Target and Batman was no more! All the other boys we saw on Halloween loved his outfit and they would all watch him and say cool outfit. All the Dad's thought he was Bobba Fett, from the old Star Wars and they all liked his outfit, too !

Care Bear Face!

Care Bear Face!, originally uploaded by heatherplong.

We went to the Wild Oats Halloween Festival and they had trick-or-treating, color your own bag, pumpkin decorating and face painting by professional face painters. They did an awesome job and Lucy loved it so much! She would go look in the mirror all night. She would make little faces at herself and just had a fabulous time with it. When we first got home she said "Daddy's going to say, 'where's my Lucy?" When she got up in the morning she was absolutely crushed that it was gone, so I promised her that I would go buy some face paints, so she would have her face painted for Halloween! She seriously had a blast with this face. It was her favorite part of Halloween!

Little Cottonwood Canyon Hike

This was the pretty lake that we went to that was so clear and gorgeous. Over by the rock that Brady, Lucy and Beanie are at, there was at least fifty salamander's swimming around the rock. They were awesome!! We were all very excited by it. Of course, the boys wanted to catch one. Although, Brady caught one for a little bit, it did get away. Yeah, for the salamander :)

Cold Lucy

This was little Lucy getting cold on the hike. Look at the face! She is telling me her woes. She ended up getting a little wet at the pretty lake, so she had to wear Mommy's sweatshirt.

So, Lucy wanted to wear these earrings of Grandma Cannon's, but they hurt her ears. She then proceeded to ask her Daddy if he would put them on. For his princess, he said "yes". The amazing part is that he let me take a picture!! Love you, honey!

This is Lucy up at Snowbird the day after her birthday!
We had such a fabulous time up there, celebrating her
third birthday. We had plans of going on the tram and
the alpine slide with everyone, but it turned out that we
woke up the next morning and it was snowing!!!!
So, we had a fire and snuggled up to each other, while we
watched the snow fall!

Lucy loves to put her little fingers in Daddy's ears and wiggle them around, which in turn gets a little scratchy and is quite painful for him!
