Reese had her first ever dance program. She takes dance from a lady in our ward who is just awesome plus she is 7 months prego. She dances in a dance company of women/mothers (4 are preg.) and they put on a spiritual recital for enrichment nights, I know we are not suppose to call it that but anyway...she had her little dancers do a number in between their dances. Reese loves everything about dance, the dress, makeup, hair, I don't know if she could get any more girlie! I was so proud of Reese! She did great! She even made Grandma Ogden cry (not really a surprise there!) I am not a dancer and do not have one graceful bone in my body...she must take after Sean! HAHAHA!
i'm just glad you can't see her face really up close because she insisted on putting her own eye shadow on and she puts it on right above her eyebrows!
Reese waiting to start the program!
Flower from Grandma. She was just as excited to get the flower as she was to dance! Thanks Gran!
We took a short trip to California during Deer Hunt..... I mean Fall Break. We spent a day in Disneyland/Cali adventure. For some reason I thought we missed UEA break and Disneyland would not be busy and it was October and so it would be a nice temperature...NOT THE CASE!!!! It was so busy and so stinkin' hot and I mean miserably hot and so busy you couldn't even get around! The kids had fun though! We also spent some time with our good friends Tony and Suzanne Davis and their 3 kids, which was so fun! Tony was in the same mission as Sean. Our kids really think that they are their uncle and aunt! We love them! It just so happened that the same weekend that we were in california, BYU played San Diego St. WOW how lucky were we! We met up with Tony and his brothers and all went to the game. We had great seats right in front of the aztec student section in the end zone. Good Food (lots of In-n-out, corn dogs at D-land, BJ's pizza!), Good Friends, Good Fun!
So uh New Moon came out..... My Myers side is a little crazy/fun as you will soon see in the slide show. Last year when Twilight came out we had a big party also with t-shirts/v-8 juice/we had ravioli you know the meal that Bella ate at the restaurant with Edward (see, crazy)/ we all wore black and red. It was really a lot of fun. This movie we were in charge of the decorations. We, Jane (MIL) Emily, Jill, Monica (all SIL) and myself decided to do Bella's Birthday Party. We sent out birthday invitations, had Japanese lanterns and white Christmas lights outside, lots of lit candles all over, a birthday cake, lots of pink roses, and we made passports (of course! they went to Italy). Aunt Rosie and daughters were in charge of dinner. She made Navajo tacos...sososo good! Aunt Marci and daughters were in charge of games....right when everyone arrived they got a sticker on their back with a name or something to do with the books written on it and you had to ask questions to guess what it was. We had a howling contest ( I know, as I write this I am laughing and shaking my head! we are all adults and everyone did it!). We played win-lose-or draw, that was pretty intense! and we had to label a motorcycle which I am proud to say I won and the prize was a fleece blanket with a picture of the cast on it! Then to top the night off we all went to the movie together. So much work by everyone went into this night to make it so much fun! THANK YOU! Now that it has come and gone, I'm not going to know what to do with my time now. Only 7 months 'till the next one! Better get planning!
Those in attendance: Jane Myers, Jill Thayer, Emily McGuire, Carrie Myers, Monica Myers-in spirit, darn Ohio!, Marci Gerhett, Hilary Rex, Emma Wright, Jana Patton, Rosie Reed, Roseanne Young, Jennifer Reed and Chelsea Moore
My neighbor (Brenna Thomas Lapray..some of you Timpviewers might know her) gave Reese some really cute shoes. Apparently Reese thought they were so cute that she couldn't be separated from them. I mean really!
SCHOOL!!!!! We had an extra long summer! The first day of school was September 1st, due to the construction of a new high school. I'm sure they didn't ask the mothers if this was OK to delay the start of school but whatever!
Myers boys showing their true colors!
Cameron 11yrs starting 6th grade! thats right 6th!
Carson "I need a hair-cut" Myers 9 yrs. 4th grade
Tyson 6yrs 1st Grade!!!!!
And now the moment we've or I should say I've been waiting for.......dundunnana
PRESCHOOL!!!! Reese is only 3 and she won't go to nursery by herself, and I mean crying fits! but for some reason she has wanted to go to preschool......go figure. She has told everybody we see who talks to her that she is going to preschool this has been going on for a month or so, so I put her in! It's the cutest school it is called AB/CD preschool (the /= a lightening bolt like AC/DC so cute!). She is going with our neighbor Jonah. I took her for the first time, she hadn't met her teacher before or been in that kind of environment and she just went in and did it. I left and waited for the "call" but she did great! I'm on to her now! She has been playing us, mostly Sean, for a year and a half with not wanting to go to nursery. Not any more sista! The biggest news with Reese is that she is finally Potty Trained! After trying, and trying for a year she finally did it and when I say she did it that's exactly what happened! I was going a little crazy! Yeah! no more diapers!!!!!!
I don't know how this tooth got to be loose. I'm sure it had some help! We are slow teeth losers! It took a couple of days for Tyson to get the courage up to let me or Sean pull it. He wasn't worried that it would hurt, he was worried that there was going to be blood! Now he won't have any trouble eating corn of the cob!
