How did my adorable little girl, who used to stand at the window and call to the kitties, "Leetle, leetle, leetle" and would sing, "Happy to You!", turn into this beautiful, 14 year old, teenager? Yup, Cheyenne had another birthday. 14! (I only had four candles.) That's like real teenager age now, no more a tween. She was a little bummed her birthday was on Sunday, but we had a fun day together (I think it was still fun for her, too.) The day started with a quick cinnamon roll for breakfast before church. Then the Primary did their sacrament program, so that was entertaining. A friend gave her a present at church (totally unexpected!) She got roped into singing with the choir - okay that part wasn't so much fun, and it wasn't even my fault. I got roped in, too. She about died having to wait for her dad to get home before she could open presents. But it was worth it, especially since her dad couldn't wait any longer and had to give the family a present for Cheyenne's birthday, too - Guitar Hero 5. We grilled hamburgers and had french fries while watching football. Then played guitar hero all afternoon. That night Grandpa and Grandma and Uncle Thomas came over and Uncle Shaun and Aunt Alana and boys for a party (we have a small group now :( ) We had a sad looking cake, but Cheyenne liked it. Then more football and more guitar hero, over all it was a good day, I think. Oh, and she also had another little party on Friday night when Aunt Kathleen and family and Aunt AmberLee were here. Her favorite presents - the John Deer tractor calendar, wrapped in Hannah Montanah paper, complete with Jonas Brother's card (which unfolded into a poster), all from Uncle Thomas. Right, Cheyenne!? :) I love you, sweetie!!

Sheesh! Apparently getting pictures posted the Monday after Halloween isn't fast enough for some people! (ahmm, Mom, Leslie, Kristen :) ) Then I couldn't get them to download yesterday, so here they are. No theme this year, some of the kids were set on their costumes and we weren't going to Bill's office this year, so they all did their own thing.
So Jon was a cowboy.
Maddie was a kitty cat.
Chloe was a princess.
Billy was a vampire, thanks to Aunt Leslie sending home vampire teeth with them all - he LOVED them!
Natalie was a witch.
And Cheyenne was a pirate - she only dressed up because I made her dress up for the carnival. It was actually kind of nice having halloween on a Saturday. The kids had parties and everything on Friday. I didn't know Bill's office was still doing their thing this year, so we didn't go. The YM/YW in our ward did a carnival Saturday morning so Billy was fine with not going to the school carnival. YEAH!! They really had a fun time at the ward carnival, though. The youth did a great job, it wasn't even too big of a hassle for us leaders, so I'm suggesting we do it again next year - especially if it'll get me out of a school carnival again. :) That was in the morning, so we came home, relaxed for the afternoon, then got dressed up again. The kids got a TON of candy from the carnival so we really didn't even have to do much trick or treating. The weather was really nice, too, so we didn't even freeze while we were out. All in all, it was a great Halloween!
