Growing up!

The past couple of weeks have been full of potty training Hailey, Dance class for Brinley, and lots of Cheering for sadie! Hailey woke up one morning and told me she wanted to be a big girl. So I decided to quite being a lazy mom and start potty training! We went to the basement and pulled out the fun potty that sings to you when you go. She thought that was so fun. After a few hours of that we had to put it away! it was so obnoxious. I couldn't take it anymore. Then we ventured off to target to find the big girl undies and she thought she was hot stuff! she couldn't wait to get home to put them on! Needless to say she has pretty much potty trained herself. She now likes the big potty and just goes! It is so nice not to have diapers any more. I have to say that Hailey was definitely the easiest out of the three with the whole potty training thing! The same day we started potty training she wanted to sleep in a big girl bed! So we did everything all at once. This hasn't been quite as easy but a bribe from the treasure box always helps!
Brinley just started a dance class at the Creative Arts Academy and is loving it. She is in a creative dance class and just loves her teacher Sara. She looks forward to it every week.
Sadie was so excited to get her cheerz uniform. She has been practicing so hard for the upcoming season. We can't wait to see her in the upcoming cheer competitions.

Labor Day weekend

We started our weekend a little early. Me and my mom and sisters went up to midway for swiss days. We had such a great time together. The first night we made a fun halloween craft. On friday morning we woke up early to get to swiss days and were surprised to see how crowded it was at 8:30 in the morning! We had lots of fun wandering the booths and found plenty of fun stuff to spend our money on! We had fun shopping the outlets and eating out it was a fun weekend. On Saturday morning the rest of the family came up and we had fun riding bikes, swimming, and visiting lots of parks! We had beautiful weather and enjoyed every minute of it!
I felt so bad to leave my cute husband on our 11th wedding anniversary but we had a great time when all of the family joined us for the weekend.
