We all got to go the the church for Trunk or Treat. We played games (Jacob was incharge of the pumpkin toss game and he was so cute with all the kids acting like they were actually what they were dressed up as) Savannah, Hannah and Kaylie won goldfish again this year and we actually had somewhere to put them this time and they are still doing good. They had a spook alley and a jump house too. The trunks were all decorated fun and Paige was afraid of most of those. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

I found a way to be able to sign up Hannah to Gymnastics and she is so excited. She is already caught up to Kaylie and loving the bars, vault and the balance beam. They are even on the high balance beam already and they do it very gracefully. The white specks is the chalk they put on their hands, they always use too much but they love it.

Savannah wanted to play volleyball again this year with the Veterans and she is having a good time. Her coach is Victor and there are six girls on the team. They get to play the entire hour of the games. They are all getting their serves over pretty consistently this year. Jacob helped her with her serve at the park last week so we will see if she can do it at the game tomorrow. She has two more games left. All of her sisters are eager to join the volleyball team next year too.

We finished earning our animal badge this week by doing a puppet show with animal puppets we made. The kids all got a turn to introduce their animal and share something that they learned about their animal. We are having lots of fun with Girl Scouts this year and I love spending time with the girls.

Savannah started her second year of volleyball and she is off to a good start. Instead of last year when we were a little surprised when she got her serve over or returned the ball this year we are surprised when she doesn't. She is having a great time with the team and since there are only six of them they all play the whole hour of three games. Savannah is trying all the sports this year.

I was going through the girls clothes and Paige saw this dress and wanted it on. She then found her white dress up shoe but couldn't find the other one. The cept saying I lost my shoe over and over so I called her Cinderella and she loved that it is her favorite princess. She still wears that dress whenever she can around the house. This dress was Kaylie's dress from 2004 when Tanya and Billy got married. I can't believe that Kaylie was that little and that Paige is already that big.

For Activity Days this year they had the girls make cars with their dads and race them. The race was all about the girls and they had fun. Jacob was the most enthusiastic dad though I was even asked to control him and I assured him that I couldn't. It didn't help that they got first place in five of the races. They worked on it together and had a good time doing it I loved that they got to do this together and that they were so successful.

We had family over for Jacob's Birthday party. We had lazagna his favorite. The kids all got him something from the store and that was the most entertaining part other than the "I'm Too Sexy" karayoke by Jacob. Savannah got him a reading light and a brain puzzle. Hannah got him a radio with headphones for him when he is working out and a multi tool. Kaylie got him Mike and Ikes and silly string which was used up by Jacob seconds after he opened it. Nate got him highlighters and a shoe polish kit. They picked them out on their own and loved giving it to daddy. After cake we started with karayoke and we had a great time Sam, Grandma Richards, Savannah, Kaylie, Hannah, Jeanne, Tara, and Jacob performed. Jacob was the life of the party of course and we all celebrated having him in our lives.

Well I did it I got trained and I am a co-leader for fourteen girl scouts including my two brownies. Savannah still comes even though she is a Junior Girl Scout. We are having fun and the girls love that I am involved with them. We finished our science tryit by blowing up balloons using baking powder, we are working on the animal try-it and the Quest try-it also. The girls love learning new things and I love doing it with them.
