Maddie and her Uncles

We were lucky enough to have the boys come visits us a couple of weeks ago. It was SO much fun having them around! I'm so grateful that they only live a couple of hours away. Here are a few pictures I took right before they left to head back to BYU. Spencer and Madelyn are lucky to have such fun uncles. We love you!

Twilight Party

Here are some pictures of the cupcakes I made for the Twilight party we had. They were chocolate with red frosting in the middle. We had tons of fun!

Our Silly Kids

Not too much to report here at the Sullivan's! We've all been passing around a nice cold which stinks. It started with me, then went to Spencer, then Madelyn got part of it, and now Robert is feeling sick. I actually took Sissy to the doctor today just to make sure she was alright. Of course, she was just fine. I felt pretty silly bringing her into the doctor, but it made me feel better to know she's healthy. Madelyn is weighing in at a whopping 12lbs 11.5oz! She's finally getting to the point where you don't think she'll snap in half when you pick her up! She is pretty cute, too! Here's a picture I took of her last night while Spencer was in the tub. Her hair is really red right now which I have to admit, I LOVE!!

Madelyn looks like she's ready to lay a big wet kiss on ya! She's so silly!

And then there's Spencer...our funny, crazy, smart little boy. This picture made me laugh out loud. He's getting so big. He talks all the time. You never know what's going to come out of his mouth. It's a hoot! One of his new favorite sayings is "One more time!" He says it after just about everything. After you sing a song, tickle him, read a story...whatever! Spencer's a dancing fool these days, too! If any music comes on, he starts to groove to the beat. He is SO funny! I'll have to post more of his funny sayings.

Robert is doing great, other than the being sick. School is almost over which is awesome! I know he's ready for a break. After we get home from a warm Thanksgiving in Florida, he turns around and heads for Phoenix, AZ. He's going down with BYUI to interview with some companies and put his resume out there. He also just got an internship with a company called Epic Ventures. It's a venture capitalist firm that's helping grow the economy in southeast Idaho. He'll be working there starting in January while he's off track from school. We're really excited about the doors this could open for him!
And then there's me! Not too much going on with me. Piano lessons are still going really well. All my students are amazing musicians! Primary is good. This time of year means possibly finding new teachers and figuring out who's going to be in what class starting January. I realized the other day that we have 7 new sunbeams next year. Can you believe it?!?! And our Sunbeam teacher just moved, so if you're in our ward...beware! Just joking...sort of. I'm super excited for our trip to Florida next week! We'll stay through Thanksgiving then return on Friday. We are all in need of a vacation so this couldn't have come at a better time. We need to be reminded that the sun does shine on some parts of our beautiful country. So if you don't hear from us for a while it because we're enjoying all the fun and family that Florida has to offer! We love you and hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy November 4th!

It's that time again, folks. Time to VOTE! Robert and I already voted and boy, did it feel GREAT! What a wonderful country we live in. I hope that in four years we can vote again. So, to all you intelligent Americans, I would urge you to go cast your vote today for the next president. And, to all you ignorant Americans, I would respectfully ask you to hold your votes until American Idol starts in a couple of months. Happy Voting!

Happy Halloween!

Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween! We had a great time at our ward's Trunk-or-Treat. There were a ton of people from the neighborhood that came. It was great to see everyone's awesome costumes. This year, the Sullivans didn't match exactly...actually, we didn't match AT ALL! Spencer was a dragon/monster...(he kept changing his mind.)
Madelyn was a kitty cat...a darn cute one, at that!Melaleuca goes all out for Halloween. Every year they have a theme that each team participates in. This year's theme was Disneyland. The Rexburg management team was 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea...or something under water. I'm not sure exactly. But Robert had to dress up like a sea captain...
And I always thought scrubs looked really comfortable, so I wanted to be a doctor for Halloween. Well, scrubs aren't as cheap as I thought and the actual doctor costume was cheaper. The costume also came with a surgical cap and mask and a stethoscope! Awesome! So that's why I was a doctor.


Madelyn really does just takes a minute! : )
