Tree Hunting

 We we always get our tree from Lowe's. I have no idea why but we love these Douglas Fir 6-7 footers. We went through a few different ones and finally came across this beauty!

 Look at that handsome man!! Oh and also the beautiful tree:)

 Nena is working on her "cute" smile so I had to include this even though it's blurry.

I have no clue what created such a silly face but it is very genuine.  

 I love this boy! He is my perfect other half. Plus he bought me the tree I wanted so he's a gem.

Lol. She did NOT want to stand on top of the blocks 

 But she was happy to sit:)

It was SO fun and here is what we created:

 Happy Holidays!!

Holly & Phil

I had the privilege of photographing this beautiful couple and dear friends from our Lakeside ward. It was SOOO freezing so I think we managed to do this in like 20 or 30 minutes. It was so awesome to work with them and I think they will have a lovely Christmas picture to send out. 

Merry Christmas!!

Ballet Class

Our Sweet Pea just started Ballet!! She is taking lessons at Center Stage. Evan found out all about it and did all the hard stuff. He was so excited too! 
 I just think she is the cutest little ballerina and I am one of those moms who might go crazy with this. We went to Dance Works just to check out some stuff and holy cow! I was in heaven. The tutus are to die for, the ballet slippers and darling, and the leg warmers are irresistible!
I contained myself on just buying a bunch of stuff. I kinda want to see what I can make/try. We will see how that goes:)
Point of story: This is going to be fun. 
I snapped a couple pictures after her class this week.

 Ha ha, she really does love her class, even though she looks a little stiff here. lol

I think this back is to die for!

 Her teacher Cassie wasn't there today but this teacher was so great with the kids.

 I have to put stuff on her that I could never pull off. I am living vicariously:)

 Okay so I know this is blurry but I love that I caught her dead on with the teacher. 
She might be getting it! :)

 They are just starting to learn a dance for their Christmas concert.
Can't wait!

 She is thrilled about the treats/stickers at the end of class!

Maybe someday I'll get to take a similar picture of her in point shoes:)

Halloween 2012

Our Griffin Family October

So it started out with a fun visit to Cornbelly's


Evan, Kasey, Josh, Jamile, Evan and Kenny....Plus also me taking the picture:)

After Cornbellys, we all met up at our house for some pumpkin carving. 
What do you think of our designs?!

Pumpkin Carving

Evan's Creation

Kenny's Creation

Jamile's Creation

Some how I forgot to take a picture of my pumpkin...and mine got smashed on Halloween night. Who just does that? It's so rude to vandalize!

Lakeside Trunk-or-Treat
Our little Tangled  princess! 
Evan got her dress and wig from Disneyland while he was thereon business this month.
She absolutely loved her wig! Weird, right? She wore it for a long time, until it started to get warm and itchy around her hairline.

School Halloween Party
So we started out the day with a parade for the other classes.

Here is Vienna's class doing their parade.

Family Trick-Or-Treating

My Daddy was the Toothfairy!! lol. He has a ton of practice!

All my family, half dressed up. The cool ones any way:)

My mom and I got our costumes from the Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork! 
It was Evan's brilliant idea. He is such a smarty. He actually even picked mine out. 
I could not decide which one of the 6 that I had narrowed it down to. I LOVED it!

Again, the Bollywood girls! Or Indian Princesses...???
