Caroline and Mia cooking up some sweets! (Aug)

Okay so you don't think I'm terrible for missing Caroline's birthday, I haven't been able to blog about it because my computer won't boot. Ugh!

Our Sweet Caroline turned seven-years-old on November 13th. Time flies when you're having fun! Caroline is the Spice to our family. She's full of energy and spunk. She remembers everything you say, do and wear and will give her opinion about it! She's an amazing singer, dancer and performer. If there is a spotlight she will find it ( should have seen her find the spotlight when she performed as an orphan in Annie two years ago). She loves cooking shows and wants to be the next Rachel Ray. She's a natural leader, of course it helps that she's a head taller than most! She's fun and creative and always having conversations......mostly with herself (it's very entertaining to watch)! She's my little side-kick and doesn't want to grow up cuz then she will have to leave mommy. I keep telling her that when it's time for her to move out of our home, she will be more than ready and very happy to go! She's full of hugs and kisses and loves to snuggle with me and read. Our family has been so blessed to have Caroline as our little caboose. WE LOVE YOU CAROLINE!!!
She had a Camp Rock birthday party. It was very fun. The party was on Tuesday because we had no school. On Thursday her school was having a family picnic at lunch time. So Tom and I had lunch with Caroline at school and I brought cupcakes baked into ice cream cones for her class. Thursday evening Nana and Papa Bolton came down from Salt Lake. We had dinner, opened presents and to top the night off we caught Brynn and Cindy Hardy after they put a bunch of birthday notes to Caroline on our front door! It was sooooo cute!!!

The only pictures I can post are the ones currently in my camera, which are her party and some pix over the last few months. I'm hoping to get our computer fixed so I can retrieve all my pictures. Yikes!

This was Braeden two weeks ago for the "Bone Game"
between Vegas and Rancho....a 54 year rivalry! What a loot!!!!

Before trick and treats with Jensens.

School Parade

Carving pumpkins in a swimsuit!?!?

Halloween came and went so fast my head is spinning! We had a ward party on the 25th, which was lots of fun. We are now in a new ward. Our boundaries were realigned and the Christy Meadows ward is no more (sniff, sniff). We are now in the Mtn. Vista ward, which is wonderful! Caroline was very sad when all this occurred and I didn't understand it until Gay Whinery pointed out that Caroline was born when her daddy was the bishop of Christy Meadows Ward and she pretty much owned the place. Poor Princess Caroline's Kingdom is no more.

Anyway, back to Halloween! We had school parties, dances and parades on Oct. 30th cuz there's no school on the 31st due to Nevada Day.

On Halloween we spent the afternoon at the Jensens. The kids went swimming and played during the afternoon. We then ran home to carve pumpkins, then back to the Jensens for trick or treating. Braeden was surfing in California over the weekend. Greg Jensen took the boys to their place in Del Mar. I received text messages saying, "Weather is perfect. Waves are awesome. Having a Great time!" So we missed him over the weekend, but he's coming home tonight. Katelynn was with us for a short time, then off to a party. So it was Collin, Caroline and friends for trick or treating. We had much fun and I'm glad it's over. Now if I can just stay out of their candy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
