Busy Birthdays

Wow! These past few months have flown by for us! We only had three weeks vacation while the kids were out of school. Then right after Pioneer Day we were back to school. Allee is finishing up her last year of preschool this year and didn't actually start until September. But we found a neighbor who is in her class this year and Yeah for carpooling! She also had her birthday in August and is 4 years old, one of the youngest in her year of school. Allee and Dani had a joint birthday party at Grandma Young's and went and visited with Grandma Grundvig the same weekend. So they had lots of birthday partying! Dani turned 6 years old this year, the year I let them have friends over for a party. We had a lot of fun thanks to all the friends who came to her party. We dressed up with animal masks (found at the $ store 3 in a package!) and we played our own version of Fruitbasket. We had one kid sit in the middle who would call out one of the animals or "It's a Zoo!" and the kids would trade places. Surprisingly they fought over that middle position...I guess they all wanted to have a turn to call out the animals! Then we gave them all glo-in-the-dark wands and swords and played Duck Duck Goose with them. It wasn't dark, but they had a blast with them anyway. Of course I had to get a picture of them all dressed up! It was a lot of fun:)
