A daughter is a day brightener and a heart warmer. ~Author Unknown

Here is my photo story of what we have been up to lately. The first pic is a little scary so prepare yourself. But yesterday Zoey got some makeup for her birthday. Today she gave me a makeover with eye shadow, lipstick and nailpolish.
This has been an amazing year for Zoey. She made it through our adventure of moving this year and has grown a ton! She had so many firsts this year. She got her first fishing pole, went tubing, learned to pump on the swing, can ride a big girl bike, and can spell her name. She likes to do workbook pages with matching, eliminating which one is different and tracing letters and numbers. She has even started dot to dots. She started her first year of preschool. I just can't believe how much and how quickly she is changing. Not to mention that only recently she is ok with being a girl. She has boyfriends and likes playing dress up, mom and dad and even asked for Barbies this year.
Yesterday we had Zoey's birthday party. We got her a birthday balloon bouque and had some of her friends over. We had cake and icecream after a few rounds of pin the tail on the donkey. Zoey got hers perfect on the first try and Isaac put his directly over the top of Zoey's. He said he couldn't see through the blindfold, but who knows.

Not my best decorating job, but it seemed to work.

Zoey started to blow out her candles as soon as we started singing.

And she LOVED opening presents!

After the party we went to Spirit Hall. It is a brand new NHL sized ice arena. It was open for public skate, plus they had pics with Santa and pizza (you didn't have to have the pizza in the pic). The weather had already started to blow in the storm, but we went anyway and had a great time. Zoey LOVED skating, telling me she is a fast learner. Of course she also told me that because I am big, I would not fall down. I think ice is slippery no matter how big you are. Isaac wasn't in the mood to go out, but we drug him with anyway and it turns out he likes to skate also.

He we are looking for the perfect tree in the Big Horn Mountains. Gosh, I love that man, taking us all up there for a great family day!

We scouted here for some trees. We walked up the hill (remembering it is actually a mountain). But didn't find the one we were looking for.

So we sledded back down.

Here's the one we want.

Again, a good man to bring us with and do all the work himself.

Even I enjoy enjoy making snow angels. Actually I love the blanket of untouched glistening snow! I also like the way it chrunchies when you walk on it.

I can't describe to you how much Ike likes to sled.

Wanna race?

Decorating the tree was fun. Where Zoey is standing is where ALL of her ornaments are and there is a spot on the exact opposite side for ALL of Isaac's.
