Christmas Lights

One night Brookie, Penelope, and I had some time to kill. We decided to drive by Main street in town because they had put up Christmas lights already. Well we got out of the car, bundled up the girls, and looked at everything. They were so cute.

Dance Performances

The Jubilee of Trees was the first performance for the dance year. The girls received new costumes and looked adorable in them. A couple weeks later they had another performance at the Dickens' Festival.

At the end of the dance, each girl runs in the middle of the stage, does a trick and give a kiss. Brookie decided to do a kick, and it was awesome. I love her!

The older girls had the opportunity to audition for America's Got Talent! We are so proud of them. On the same weekend they were in Las Vegas for a dance workshop, they were able to audition.

Paul Saunders (November 18, 2015)

Bubba and Paola found out in spring last year that they were expecting. This was quite the surprise, and everyone was so ready and excited for a new little one. We all wanted a little girl so bad, but we also wanted a little boy for Hendrix to have for a buddy. So in the summer, we all got together at the park and had a gender reveal party. Paola and Bubba opened a present with an outfit revealing the gender of a boy! We were all so surprised and sure it was going to be a girl. Emma was so upset.

Well this little guy came and we are in love with him! So proud of Paola, this was not the easiest pregnancy for her, but she made it through a hot summer and teaching preschool.

Bubba caught me taking a picture of them going to the operating room.

The minute I saw him I thought he looked just like Nathon! He is seriously a mini version of him.

Our favorite pediatrician checking on him. We seriously love her!


Brookie was battling a runny nose when he was born. I was pretty sure it was allergies, but I didn't want to risk it, so she had to wait a couple days to go to the hospital to visit him.

We of course are so in love with this guy! He is such a blessing.

Carter's Baptism (November 14, 2015)

This was such a special day for Carter, and he was amazing. I cannot believe that Mandy and Allan only have one more kid to be baptized after Carter. The day was awesome and so spiritual. We are so proud of this guy!

Mandy and I set up at the church the night before, which helped save her so much time for the actual baptism day. We were able to set up the table and prepare a lot of the food. The kids were able to run around and play. Mandy did an awesome job with the decorations again!

This was Brookie on the way home from setting up. She had just bought the Shopkin toy with her birthday money, and wanted to hold it.

I look at these pictures and I cannot believe how big everyone is getting. Pretty cute bunch of kids! We missed Parker, he was already in the car, he was ready for the food. :)
