I had to post this one as it's so fun. She just ate a blue sucker. She sure loves candy!
Charlotte got a little walker about a month ago. She took to it very well. We first did it this way for pushing it and walking behind it but after two weeks and the PT came back and said we need to turn this around so she pulls it. It will help her stand up straighter. It sure does.
One of Charlotte's favorite things to do is stand at the chalk board and color. She can get up to it all on her own now. She can get the walker going that direction and maneuver from the walker to the chalk board. She's just getting better and better at getting around.
This is the first time using it. She did so well.

Ok so each time I make a video and see that it's sideways cause I want it tall way on my camera I don't remember that the video is video and is shot sideways. Sorry about that. maybe someday I'll learn that video can't be done sideways. But she does so well in this video I didn't want to just scrap it cause it's sideways. Enjoy!

Halloween - lots of pictures

We had a mermaid, a ladybug and a pirate at our house for Halloween. Kathryn was so fun to be with this Halloween. She knew what to say and to say Thank you and well she was just so cute this year. Charlotte had fun and can now say Candy but I think next year and the next will be even better. I know a lot of people don't like this holiday but come on its so much fun to dress up and eat chocolate.
Kathryn the Mermaid

Carolin the Pirate!

Charlotte the Lady bug!
Ric and Thadius our Home Teachers are Huge Star wars fans.

The Cup Cake walk- Kathryn decided it took to long to get a cupcake and went up and took one anyway. I would have to agree.
Carolin had a lot of fun dressing up. I guess in Germany Halloween is really just a little kid thing. Little did she know that Halloween is definitely a grown up holiday too.
Posing for the camera!
Ghost, Goblin or a Ghoul... No Mermaid, Pirate and Ladybug

Carolin's Jack 0 Lantern
Chiara's Jack O Lantern- can you tell it's Tinkerbell's silhouette?

My Halloween craft this year. I found the wonders of a bleach pen. They turned out pretty good if I say so myself.

Kathryn's first jack o lantern this year. She had lots of fun doing this.

I actually roasted the pumpkin seeds for two pumpkin carving sessions and I cooked up one pumpkin and made homemade pumpkin pie with it. I did two of them and they both turned out really good. Carolin is a fan of pumpkin pie. I haven't perfected it yet but I'll get there.

We took the girls trick or treating in our little half circle neighbor hood and one across from us. Kathryn's pumpkin candy holder got way to heavy for her. lots of good candy to be had. I certainly ate to much. Maybe that's why we all got sick just after Halloween. to much candy!

Kathryn's in Preschool

I can't believe I've let a whole month go by without posting.
First big thing since I posted last was that Kathryn started Preschool. She Loves it! We goes Wednesday and Friday afternoons for 3 hours. I have lots of art all over my walls because she's in school. She has become quite the artist. Her favorite is drawing people.
Matthew heard her the other day talking to one her little drawings and it talking back. The drawing said,"no I don't want Brown hair", Kathryn says back your going to have Brown hair", then the drawing says "Noooooo' as Kathryn draws on the hair.
So cute.
She also got featured at church yesterday for being confident with yourself. She walked or rather danced into church yesterday with her purple tutu dress and awesome Pink sunglasses on. Now I wish I would have gotten a picture. But the Young Women's teacher saw this and after Sacrament meeting she came up to Matthew and asked if she could come to her YW class on being confident and loving oneself. Kathryn was asked to do some dancing with her sunglasses on and just and a fun time.
She sure knows how to have fun! I love that she's so much into drawing and coloring right now. She now colors within the lines now. does patterns too. She is growing up so fast.
