Phantom of the Opera

Me, Paige and Adams mom went to see Phantom of the Opera. It was really cool. I've been to Les Miserables and I liked that better but this was still really good. Paige loves the movie so she was excited to see it on stage. When it started she was on the edge of her set for like the first 15 minutes, she loved it! She got a little restless in the middle but loved the ending. I bought her one of the books they sell and now she wants the poster to put up in her room and the music CD. I'm glad she enjoyed it. I never went to a broadway show growing up (mom why was that???) so I'm glad my daughter had the opportunity to go. I'm glad she enjoys the broadway music like I do. So we'll see what comes to Spokane next year and hopefully we'll go! (That last picture I took because I loved the view with all the fall colors and the river.)

Fall is offically here...

Riley was so excited coming home from school and seeing all the leaves he can rack up and jump in. Paige she just looked for walnuts that fell! And yes she's in her sandles with no coat! She has this weird thing with her feet (dad it would drive you crazy, it does me) she's never in socks even when its cold outside. When I go check on the kids at night during the winter to make sure they're covered up her feet are always sticking out of the blanket. The rest of her is covered though. One night the kids slept in this pop-up tent they have and again I checked on them and Paiges feet were sticking out the door! Last week we went to a friends house for FHE and all the kids played football outside and it was probably like 30 degrees and there was Paige with no shoes or socks on running around. (yes dad I made her get her shoes on and her feet did get warm!!!) Its weird seeing her go outside with no shoes or wear socks in the house or even sometimes a coat or sweater because ME, I'm constantly cold! I thought maybe it was a girl thing that I got cold all the time but after seeing Paige, I guess it's just me!

OK I love fall--I love the crisp air in a mornings walk, all the different colors of the trees, watching the kids play in the leaves and coming in and having hot cider or hot cocoa, going to Green Bluff and getting pumpkins and going on hay rides, The pumpkin spice Doughnuts from Krispy Kreme (sooo good BTW!!!), Carmel apple bars, Pumpkin roll, and getting excited for the holiday's, oh and that my birthday is a few months away!!! Probably my one and only thing I like about Spokane (other then Adams family of course) is that it has the perfect Four Seasons! Spring -is perfect not too wet but wet enough to get the grass green again from winter and warm enough to go outside, Summer- it can get hot but it doesn't last. You have a few days that are really hot but then a rain storm comes and cools everything down and the Summer nights are perfect, they cool down enough to play outside with no bugs, and no humidity! Fall- I described it above, And Winter- I love watching the first snow fall but don't like driving in it. We have our share of snow but I can't complain. So if we were to move (which is a possibility) and someone asked me what I missed about Spokane I would say the weather...the Four Seasons!

And it's begun...

OK so Paige got her first phone call from a friend from school. She was so excited. As soon as the phone was in her hand she was not stop talking. I don't think her friend said anything...let me rephrase that...her friend couldn't get a word in! She likes to walk and talk on the phone so she went to my bedroom to walk around in circles. I gave her a pair of shorts for her to put away (thinking she could do that and talk at the same time) She looks at me and Says "mom I'm on the phone!!!", then she says to her friend "my mom is such a disaster"!!! I have no idea where she got that from but it was too funny I just cracked up. So then she went up stairs to her room (for privacy) then Adam started watching her talk (we like to watch her talk on the phone because she doesn't stop, and we feel sorry for the person on the other end) She pointed to the phone and said "dad its private"! It was so funny. I can just imagine how she's going to be when she's older!!!
