Playing basketball!

Now that volleyball is over, it's time to get ready for basketball! Our sport court in our backyard hasn't been started yet (we are hopeful that we still get some time to play on it before winter), but our new gym has quite a few options for basketball courts.

This one ... ha! She forgot we came to play basketball!

Loving the weather :)

The kids and I had a few free minutes after school the other day, so we drove out to an arboretum by our house to walk around. It was such a beautiful area!

Gizmo :)

I sure love this dog!

We don't have a fence at our new house, which has meant some big changes for Gizmo ... every time he has to go out, we have to take him. I'm pretty sure we will hate every minute of that during the winter.

The other day we were playing outside (we usually just hook an extra long leash up to something so he can play outside too) and we decided to let him off of his leash. The poor thing didn't know what to do. In the past, that would have meant he would run away. This time, he didn't want to leave my side.

We took him to the back yard, and he loved it! He ran ... but then he ran right around the house into the garage and up the steps to the house! We took him to the back yard several times to run, but then he would eventually be back on the steps! I think he's trained. Ha!

Look at how happy he was!

Decorating a gourd!

Jordyn had an assignment of making a gourd into an animal or a plant. We decided on a whale ... and it became a whole family project. Ha!

We think it turned our pretty cute!

GEMS Theme Night

Last Wednesday night was our GEMS Theme Night - we had a Splash Party! 
The girls had so much fun!

I love that I get to do this with my best friend! :)

Jordyn has two wonderful counselors and is absolutely loving GEMS! Jayla loves hearing Jordyn's stories and can't wait until she's a 2nd grader so that she can go to GEMS!

Staying busy

Life continues to be busy ... the weeks continue to fly by (well ... maybe they drag sometimes during work - ha!) ... the kids continue to keep us busy! 

I sure love when this kiddo decides that he will snuggle with me! He can give the best hugs!

Ferris wheel ride at Scheels!

At the furniture store ... again. At least he found a comfy spot to hang out! 
You can tell by the look on Justin's face how frustrated we are with furniture stores right now.

Volleyball ... the girls finished their last practice of the fall academy, and basketball will soon be starting.

A little bit of play-doh fun!

My sweet puppy got groomed last week!

Go Panthers!

On Saturday the Panthers played at USD, which is just an hour from us, so we headed down to tailgate and go to the game! The weather was perfect for tailgating! It was a little chilly at first, but then it warmed up quickly!

We randomly ended up tailgating next to one of our former daycare workers! The girls loved seeing Morgan! On the way to the game, the girls asked if we would know anyone there, and I told them that Morgan was the only person, but that the chances of us seeing her were about slim to none ... ha, she was one car down from us!

This was such a fun picture to take!

We also got to talk to Coach Farley and introduce him to our kids. He is recruiting Jax already. :) Ha!

UNI gave us front row tickets ... Jax was able to get a high fives. :)

It was tough to see the Panthers miss a field goal and lose, but we still had a very fun day!
