October and November catch-up

In October we visited Linder Farms twice, then for Halloween, Kaity wanted to be Belle, so I spent forever putting this together (my mom helped with the finishing):
Corn races with Daddy

Grandpa and Kaity

Barrel train

Petting zoo
Hay maze, lots of fun!

Bounce house slide

Reading stories with Grandpa, Harrison, and Weston

One night we were playing with Grandpa when he decided to take a nap. So Kaity decorated him with pink post-it notes. He totally slept through that!

In November, I got a new nephew
Oliver Toronto Hutchins

and, three days later, a niece
Alana Ruth Peterson

and a three days later a really bad respiratory infection, thus explaining the lack of Thanksgiving pictures. We spent a great time in New Mexico, though, with my parents and sister and sister's in-laws. We missed Jared, though, as he had to work.

Massive Picture Dump part 2

We had a combined birthday picnic for Tyler, Megan, Jared and Kaity's birthdays. We all went over to the HP park and had pizza and played. Here are Kaity, Weston, and Thomas feeding the ducks with Tyler.

More duck feeding.

On Kaity's birthday we had this little cake with pink frosting and a little girl figure that was on my cake as a kid.

Kaity thought her cake was so pretty all lit up!

Super excited to get a Sofia the First paint book.

And a Strawberry Shortcake dress-up dress.

Clockwise: Kaity, Shaiel, Amber, Brooklyn, Eva, Chloe, and Lilia came over for a princess tea party. We made crowns and had "tea" and cupcakes!

Then we watched Frozen and painted nails.

Also in August we went to Utah to have a Kaity/Brett party with Papa and Grandma Z. One day we had so much fun playing that Kaity fell asleep on Papa. He didn't mind.

Running in the sprinklers.

We went to the Tracy Aviary

Three crazy birds!

The elephant at the zoo.

Carousel at the zoo.

At the bird show at the zoo. They called all the little kids up to dance and Kaity and Brett had a great time!

Then school started! Here's her grown-up girl, preschool photo.

First Day of preschool, 2013!
One night I went in to check on her and Kaity was covered in toys and had fallen asleep with her book propped up. It was so cute I had to take a picture before removing her book!

Our first school field trip was a very cold, windy trip to the apple orchard. Here are Hyrum, Kaity, and Shaiel.

More apple picking shots. None of the shots in the field turned out :(
