My little ballerina

Brooke is taking a ballet class this year. She loves 'doing her own thing' while her sisters are involved in swimming and gymnastics.
I was able to sit in her class on Thursday and observe...she takes it much more serious than I imagined.

Her class is going to be the mice in a performance of the Nutcracker in June...she is practicing her mouse moves!
My sweet girl...

Pumpkin Carving

We finally carved time out of our busy schedules so work on our pumpkins...get it?
Caught her wiping her hands on her bottom...
Daddy and Baileigh busy at work...
My crazy mastermind...

I would like to brag on my impromptu "H"...turned out great if I may say so myself.
Morgan stayed busy trying to eat raw pumpkin and saying "cheese"...
The finished products...

Fall Fun

Its a busy time of year with preschool field trips and pumpkin patch outings...

The slides are popular with both Brooke and Morgan...
One farm had pony rides, too! Brooke was so excited!
I hadn't planned on Morgan riding, but when Brooke got off the horse Morgan insisted on having her own turn! Look how proud!

The older girls miss out on all the fun because they are at school. We're going to a big plantation for their fall fun in a few weeks as a family (that is a lot of "f"s!).

I'm Committed! has been awhile, but I've signed up for another triathlon! I can't believe this was 3 years ago...the time has come to get back in the saddle. So on June 19, 2011 I hope to once again say I'm a triathlete!

Lt. Col Select

Brad had his Lt. Col Select party the other was for all promotees in the area so it was a huge bash at the Ritz Carlton. I "stuck" on temporary rank...the real rank and pay raise comes in the spring, for now its really just acknowledgement of his selection.
Brandon and Brad...taking 2 (inside joke).
Brad's great AFA buddy and former football teammate, Brandon and his wife, Angie...

Birth Order

Don't birth order books say that the baby of the family is often very spoiled and also tends to be a clown for attention?

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Brad's birthday was a week ago today, but I'm obviously just getting around to posting some pictures. I realize I've become more sporadic with my blog entries...I'm trying to become more consistent again. I recently just published the first year of my blog...back when posting was a regular event. I'm so thankful I was faithful to the blog during that time period and I'm making it my goal to resume my activity here...if for no one but my own family when they look back and read about our journey as a family.

We had a low key birthday celebration for Brad...his favorite kind! It was a Friday, which happens to be the night we host our small group from the gathering doubled as a birthday party.
Opening some AF football didn't think we would let him take the hat off just because of our small group, did you?
Unfortunately Baileigh was at a friend's birthday party on Friday night so she wasn't in any of the pictures...but we continued to celebrate on Saturday when we were all together as a family.
