I've been tagged...

So it's been a while since I have been on here and I just realized that I was tagged. So... 6 things that nobody knows about me. Let's see...

1) I love this time of year... I love the feeling, the food, the music, and the decorations. It is my absolute favorite!!! But, I could go without the snow. In all actuality I only want there to be snow on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and the next day. Otherwise that is it. I enjoy wearing sweatshirts and scarfs and stuff... and I love the look of snow. But it sticks around way too long!

2) I still ove to watch cartoons. I love mornings when the girls and I don't have to go any where. We curl up on the couch with blankets still in our pj's and watch the disney channel. Fun times! =)

3) I think I could have 4 kids. I think Jeff would have a mental break down and freak out if we did. I mentioned it one time and he gave me an evil look and left the room. Ha!

4) I am scared of the dark. Silly I know... but it can't be pitch black when I fall asleep.

5) I could eat breakfast food anytime of the day. I love pancakes and french toast and stuff like that! Yummy!!!

6) Jeff and I watch National Lampoons Christmas Vacation every night till Christmas starting Thanksgiving night. We start the movie, fall asleep to it, and then start it back up the next night where we feel asleep. We have done that since our first Thanksgiving together.

So last night, Tuesday night, was one of my best friend's husband's surprise birthday party. We all met just outside of Cheney for some flying. We went on aerotrikes. I had never heard of them before. They were so much fun!!!!!!! It is part hang glider and part motorized trike. The motor actually sounds like a weed whacker! =) But, you fly around 300 ft up at 70-75 mph. It is amazing! The views are gorgeous and the flight is exhilarating! I can't wait to go again!!! Here are some pictures from the night -

She can read!

I can't believe it! My daughter is reading. She is growing up way too fast! Halle got a set of "Bob Books" from Costco for her birthday and she has read through the first four books by herself! She gets so excited and wants to go onto the next one. I am trying to slow her down a little bit but I don't want to hold her back. It is a tight line to walk. We are pretty excited for her! =)

Halle Turns 4!!!!

Halle had her 4th birthday last week! She had a party with 4 of her little friends, plus her sister, Thursday evening. It was a baby doll party. They all brought their baby dolls and played with them in the backyard. They made english muffin pizzas, had cupcakes, & opened their party favors. I had made each girl a new baby blanket. They got also got a new bottle for their baby. The "little mommies" also got some goodies.
Halle & Faith's babies @ the party!
Faith put her party hat on by herself! =)
I couldn't resist... it was too funny!!! Halle playing on the swing set!

Then on Saturday we had a family party. Everyone came over in the afternoon. My parents (Nama & Pop-Pop) and Grandma (GGMa) were able to come over also. Their brought their jumping castle & the kids (the girls & cousins) had an absolute blast! We had pizza again, Halle's favorite food! And more bupcakes, this time it was a soccer ball. Everyone had a good time and of course Halle was spoiled beyond what was needed. But, I guess that is what happens when you have a large loving family!

Spokane County Fair

We went to the Fair a couple of weekends ago. The girls had an absolute blast! We went with Jeff's parents, his sister, her husband, and their kids; twins Abby & Walker. The kids are 2 months older than Faith, so all of the kids had a great time! They enjoyed the animals, food, dancing, but of course the rides were the best. They were all tall enough to go on the kiddie rides! It reminded me of all the times at the Ellensburg Fair as a kid. Lots of memories! =) Halle & I participated in some duck races, our duck didn't win, but it was still a good time! All the cousins with Grandma & Grandpa Price

Halle & and I (in pink) racing our duck

The favorite animal was the goat!
