Now for the boys... Garrett and Grayson love to hang out together--that's why we got them a 10-ticket package each of Jazz tickets for their birthdays. Garrett's birthday is Nov. 4 (turning 15) and Grayson's is Nov. 13 (turning 10), however the first game of their package is this Wednesday, Oct. 29 so we had to give them their gift early--they were thrilled! It gets a lot tougher (and more expensive) buying presents for kids once they hit about 10 years old. I was so sad last year when I didn't even go to the toy departments for any Christmas presents!!! Mostly electronics, clothes and money are what kids want nowadays (at least mine do). Garrett and Grayson are great buddies and great kids!

On to the next terrific daughter--Hailey! She is so fun to have around. She has a great personality and is so full of life. She dances, sings, cheers, tumbles and loves kids and dogs--especially hers! Hailey is a soldier in Ballet West's Nutcracker this year (a bit of a change after being in the party scene for the last 3 years), but she finally grew a couple of inches so had to advance to the next role. It's fun to continue our family tradition of going to the Nutcracker on Christmas Eve day and actually knowing someone in the cast to watch for. Hailey is a big help around the house and her brothers think she's especially fun to hang out and talk to. I love Hailey!

Hillary was honored at her last home soccer game Tuesday because she's a Senior. She's played for the Wildcats for 3 years--sophomore year on J.V. and Junior and Senior year on Varsity. She's a mid-fielder and runs A LOT. She's very aggressive on the field and has a couple of fouls called on her each game. The team likes Hillary and says she's always smiling and willing to do whatever the coach asks of her. She's a true team player and I wish her luck at the State games next week!
