Halloween sure was a lot of fun this year. Our two little princesses had a great time. Ashlee, our beautiful Cinderella, had a whole week of dressing up between preschool parties, gymnastic parties, and family parties.

Taylor was our adorable Snow White. We tried the hair color a couple of days before Halloween just to see how it would go, and it was MESSY!!! Everything she touched turned black, but it was super cute. We decided it wasn't worth it to do it on Halloween though. (Too much clean up.)

Halloween day we went to Ephraim to celebrate and trick-or-treat with family.

The weekend before Halloween Ashlee and Taylor got to go stay at their Aunt Melissa and Uncle Kelly's house. They had way too much fun and got spoiled rotten! Friday Melissa and Kelly took the girls to Cornbelly's.

Saturday Melissa and Kelly hosted a huge Halloween party for their neices and nephews and some neighborhood children. I definitely missed them while they were gone, but I think the girls were so busy and had so much fun that they didn't have time to miss me!


This came a little too early for me but the girls sure had a blast playing in all of it. All of this snow came the week before Halloween. Luckly it melted in a few days!

On friday the 9th our little girl turned 2!! I cannot believe how fast time flies! She is such a blessing in our lives. She is always doing things or saying things that make us smile and laugh. She is definitely the silly one in the family. She is also very sweet and cuddly too. We love you Taylor!!

For her birthday was just had a little family party. Grandma and Grandpa Johnson came up as well as Ben and Jessica and their girls. We had a dinner, opened presents, and had cake and ice cream. It was great. Thanks for all the presents and birthday wishes!

I never really realized how much our girls look alike until I ran across these pictures today. I better label them before I forget which one is which! Can you guess which is which?

Ashlee is the first of each set of pictures and Taylor is the second.


I can't believe that Ashlee is old enough to go to school. She is really growing up so fast. She was so excited to start school. Randomly throughout the summer she would ask me when school was starting.

She is actually going to school four days a week and we both LOVE it!! She loves the school and the teachers. On the first day she was a little nervous but excited. She must have had a wonderful time because when I came to pick her up she didn't want to leave. The facility is great. They have a wide variety of materials and toys. The program is very well structured and the teachers are great. They also use some students teachers from the university to help.

On the first day of class she was supposed to bring a poster that was all about her and things she loved. Of course she had to include the Disney Princesses, unicorns, Oreo's and flowers. There are also pictures of dressing up, painting fingernails, coloring, swimming, ice cream, riding her bike and her sister. Here is what it ended up like.

Ashlee and Karen

Last week we got to go with my side of the family to one of my favorite places, Lake Powell. We had such a great time. The girls and I went by ourselves because Nate had to work, and boy did he miss out!! We drove down Sunday morning and spent the afternoon setting up camp.


The next morning we got on the lake. We all had so much fun!!

Jenessa, Joshua and Ashlee

Ashlee was a little fish and loved swimming around. She was quite the adventurer. She LOVED the water weenie and she even knee boarded!! She also rode the wave runners back to the dock with me. It was quite a bumpy ride, but she held on tight and we made it!

Taylor like swimming around and relaxing. She is not a big fan of being dirty, so she didn't really play in the sand much. She did like to ride on the wave runners though.

Each night we would go back to the camp grounds and have dinner. We always go into Page at least one night and have ice cream at the Big Dipper. This part of the trip is always a highlight.

I was even pretty brave and did a little skiing and wakeborading!

We spent three long but great days on the lake. Thursday we packed up and headed home. (I think I am still trying to recover!) It was a great trip and we can't wait to go back next year!
