Busy weekend wrap-up

Busy weekend but lots and lots of fun spent with Eric and the girls. Apologies for the terrible pics, I dropped my phone on the floor at Costco a week ago and now its not taking such good pictures anymore.  Friday Sara had her dance recital, here she is backstage with the other girls from her class. 
Saturday morning we took the girls to the animal shelter to look at the cats, they really want one but I'm not quite ready yet to have another indoor pet.
Then we went to Classic Fun Center where the girls skated and played on the inflatables.
 Sunday Sara lost her 1st tooth!  In sacrament of all places:)

Kate turns 9!

I can't believe that we have had this girl for 9 years today!  Love her, she is so awesome.  Here she is on Friday testing for her purple belt in karate.
 With her new purple belt on at the end of the test.
This morning she opened presents before church, she was super hard to buy for this year because she said she had gotten everything she wanted for Christmas.  She ended up with a few hit presents, perplexus,  brainstring and some Harry Potter games and a Harry Potter quiz book.  She was surprised and loved her new stuff.
 We had a family dinner, Grandma, aunts, uncles and cousins all came over for dinner bringing her a few more presents, a soccer ball, blockbuster gift card, cash, puzzles and a state quarter collection book.  We had Kate's pick of Orange Chicken for dinner and as it was from Costco it was super easy and yummy.

 Followed by cake, I made a chocolate cake and a green velvet cake roll.
 We ended with a little Just Dance 4.  Fun day for a fun girl.

First Feis

Since we moved to Utah Sara began taking Irish Dance, a few weeks ago she took part in her first dance competition, for Irish Dancers its called a Feis.  She did very well and placed 5th in both her dances, she danced a light jig and a reel, as it was her 1st competition she got medals for both but will have to work on just a few things to get one next time.
