Chubby Cheeks & Beautiful Music

Isn't Russ adorable?
Jarin and Lucy participated our ward primary program and did a great job!  A couple of the songs we sang were just so beautiful that I made a recording, but it doesn't do justice to the kids singing them in person.  These are for you, Mom and for my fleeting memory bank.

Halloween 2014

Spiderman Jarin.
 Peacock Russ.
 Mad hatter Lucy.
 I had a good night getting them to all smile at the same time...Success.
 Favorite photo!!!
 Love this photo too!
 Our very own gang.
 Russ and Grandma Huler...His little tail feathers were shaking as he trotted along.
 Their goodies after three hours of trick or treating.
Perfect weather.  It was fun to have Grandma and Grandpa Huler visit on Halloween.  This was the first year Jarin lasted as long as Lucy.  And Russ walked quite a ways too!

'Run or Dye' and 'Monster's Elementary'

Lucy and I did a 5k color run!  These are the before shots.
Lucy's soccer teammate also participated with her mom.  These are the after photos. 
Lucy did a play at her school called Monster's Elementary.  She had several lines and sang one line of a song on her own!
 The pictures are blurry, but she's wearing that crazy headband, yellow tutu, and pink slippers to help you spot her.

Jarin's 5th Birthday

Jarin had a cowboy birthday party with five of his closest friends.  First they started with games:  drop a snake in the boot, lasso the horse, squirt/shoot the tissue bears, and dig for gold.  They got a treasure at each game to put in their loot bag.  Then they hit the pinata, had cake and ice cream, and Jarin opened presents.  Then we played a little trick on the kids.  Lucy took their loot bags out of the garage and hid them.  

When they went back out to the garage they knew their bags were missing.  There was a note, 'I'm a bandit and I robbed you today, if you want your loot back, you've got to do what I say.'  They did a little scavenger hunt and followed several more clues until Lucy gave them their loot back.  They all had a great time, especially Jarin!  He loved being the star of the party, Lucy loved being the party helper, and Russ took a nap through the whole thing. 
 Legos were his favorite gift.
