Halloween was fun this year.....Chandler went as a black cat. She enjoyed the festival at church with her friend, Micayla. Micayla was a hobo.
Cheney went as a sniper, swamp thing, "Where the wild things are" monster....whatever you want to call him. He had fun with his friends too.
I just love this picture of Chandler mid-air on the slide!!

Cheney has decided that he LOVES soccer, but he likes football too. So, he has set his sights on being a kicker for the Matador football team. He has studied the skills he needs & has even practiced kicking on the real Matador turf. At the last game of the 2011 season, he got to talk to the kicker & get some pointers on kicking the football. The kicker also plays soccer! He was so excited!!

Cheney recently started taking karate lessons. He LOVES it. Recently, he competed in his 1st tournament. He did a great job.
The first event was individual forms. You have to really concentrate to get the form correct.
After forms, each student competed in sparring. Cheney had to spar against his own teammates--this was hard.
Cheney received 3rd place in forms & 2nd in sparring.
After individual competition, Cheney competed in team forms. He was selected to represent the Seguin school with 3 other students. They did their form blindfolded. It was amazing to watch!
Their team received 2nd place in forms! GOOD JOB!!

Aunt Reva had pumpkins for the kids to decorate.
Cheney had fun helping Drew with his pumpkin. I love the expression on the boys faces!!
Chandler & Ashtyn always have fun.....they are the only girl great-grandkids so I am sure they will always stick together.
It was fun singing Happy Birthday to DREW!!

This weekend was County Fair weekend & we didn't have school on Friday!!! WOO HOO!!!
We spent the day at the fair riding the rides. It was so fun!!
Ashtyn was in town & she came to the fair. It was fun to ride with her.
Chandler waited for a while to ride this purple horse!!
Chandler also caught up with her friend, Madison. They enjoyed the petting zoo!!
This deer was cool to pet!!
Sadly, Cheney never stood still long enough for me to take a picture!! He was busy running from ride to ride. He had a blast.

Cheney is really enjoying karate. This week, he tested for his orange belt.....it was fun to watch but I was very nervous.
He had to show off his Form #1, #2, and #3 skills.
And he had to try to break the board....after 3 tries, he did it!!
Kyo Sa Nim Jon presenting Cheney with his new orange belt.
This is great new adventure for Cheney. I expect more things to come!!

Friday night was Homecoming for the Matadors. Chandler LOVES being on the sidelines with the flagrunners. And I think they enjoy playing with her!!
The Matadors look cool when they run out on the field!! They played really well but weren't able to pull out a win against Canyon. The score was 13-3.

Recently, Chandler went to her friend, Caroline's birthday party. It was at the Children's Museum. They had a great time!!
The Children's Museum is fun. Chandler played grocery store with her friend, Brooke. They met in preschool & still see each other regularly even though Brooke goes to a different school now.

One of our favorite things about living in a small town is going to as many high school games as possible & actually knowing the kids who are participating. It is just fun. This year, I am the sponsor of the Flagrunners so C & C enjoy coming down on the track with me.
My favorite part of the game: the players running out on the field. It gives me goosebumps everytime.
Watching the game with her favorite Flagrunners....Madison & Ashley.
Chandler brought her friend, Madison, on the sidelines & they had a great time hanging out with the other Madison.

This summer, Cheney went to his 1st overnight church camp. He was gone for 3 nights....while there he asked Jesus to live in his heart. It was GREAT NEWS!! Today in church, he got baptized. We are very proud of him.
It was so cool that Cheney was so excited to be baptized!! He was all smiles!!

The 2011-2012 school year started today!!
This was the 1st day of school last year.....
Mommy can't believe how much her babies have grown up!!
I have to tell you that I thoroughly embarrassed Cheney.....he told me that I should not have walked them into the building. HOW EMBARRASSING!!
