Happy Halloween!

Abbey wanted to be a fairy this year and she wanted her build a bears to be fairies as well but we couldn't find outfits for the bears so last weekend we headed out to party city to look for something else. She found this adorable Mother Nature costume and looks so cute in it we just couldn't resist. Here are a few photos of before and after Trick or Treating.

Daniel took her Trick or Treating in his mother's neighborhood with his nieces and nephews, They all came back loaded down with goodies. It was nice day but the weather was a little too cold to stay out for long.

Second chair!!

Abigail had her Regional Choir competition on Saturday and won second chair!!! She placed second out of about 160 girls (Advanced Soprano division 1) and is now (again) in the districts Advanced combined choir for JH and HS Choir members. One of the judges came out to tell us personally and was in tears over how beautifully Abigail sang. :) She said Abbey had the 6 judges so moved they all had to take 5 after her audition. Awwww that's so sweet. Before we had the results one of the judges came out and asked us to wait on the results because we were going to be really happy with the placement of one of our kids (4 auditioned for various divisions) We were very excited to hear that all 4 children placed: boys bass 12th chair, intermediate soprano 15th chair, and advanced alto 14th chair.
