I am continually blown away with the love that is shown by Kylie's extra curricular adults that surround her. Her church leaders, gymnastics coach and her wonderful school teacher all have her for precious time each day or week. That time and effort they spend building her, pushing her and being an example to her is such a blessing. She truly is surrounded by amazingly talented people that she is learning from. What a blessing in my life.

The girls finished swim lessons a few weeks ago. I kept forgetting to document this. They did so well! They could get over how fast Ky caught on to the butterfly stroke. And Reese moved up one class after the first day! Such little fish!
We went to the Wirthlin farm the other night for dinner and their s'more sticks are the greatest thing ever.
Reese gave her first primary talk last week. I had to bribe her with a Brownie.... But She did so well and besides the opening line she did it all by herself!
Walk with dad...
We went to Costco the other day for an eye appointment. They kept calling Conrad "Dr. Hilton" it was so weird to me. I think he is used to it from work but it is all new to me:)
Our walk home from school.

Conrad turned 33 on Halloween! He is seriously he greatest dad! such a hard worker and SOOO much fun to parent with. I love that I picked him;) we went over to a friends home for halloween and had a little party/ Halloween fun.
I was in charge of our ward Halloween party with 3 other ladies. I was really happy with how everything turned out!
We decorated cookies, had a parade and snacks.
Our front porch:)
But seriously, this was the first Halloween that I caught the spirit of halloween and just the fun tradition and excitement it can bring into a home. It was a great way to kick off this holiday season!

All cozy getting ready to watch general conference. My favorite thing President Monson said was to just try and be a little better today than yesterday, be a bit more thoughtful and kinder. Sometimes simple things sure can be hard for me. So I love the reminders.
The night before general conference Kylie could barely go to bed saying, I feel like its Christmas! They get so excited for general conference and our traditions while we listen to the words of a living prophet. After each session (there are 4) we do special things like make root beer floats, make suckers and the best one was going to Cranbrook with friends. We go walk Cranbrook most Sundays. It's a private school where Mitt and Ann Romney went to school. There are 316 acres of amazing sights. This is the Booth home, they were a big newspaper family in the 1920s.
In that tree the kids will play for hours on end, although I don't let them.... We like to pursue around the grounds.

Kylie's school hosted a dinner for new families! We met 2 fun families that we hope to hang out with!
Playing at the beach with our friend from Germany! She is in Kylie's class. Because of the car companies there are a lot of foreigners that move here for 3+ years. Kylie is so blessed to have kids from all over the world in her class! Sometimes she comes home with a French accent. True story

When I stepped out of my car yesterday on a crisp fall night I could smell a fire going and inside our home was an amazing homemade meal waiting for us made by Conrad. Seriously one of the best nights ever. This is the only picture I have of the end of the fire...
