Halloween Party

The Hintze family had the Halloween party at their home this year and everyone had a great time. We ate taco soup and had ghoulish treats. April had a spooky fishing pond for the kids, cookie decorating, and a pinata. All the costumes were adorable and the company perfect.

Greta- Student of the Week and Month

Greta loves kindergarten and has overcome her shyness. Her dad and I couldn't be prouder of her. She loves learning and can't wait until she can read an entire book by herself, she isn't far from that.

In her kindergarten class she was student of the week. This is where all the kids get an opportunity to make a poster about themselves with pictures and whatever else they want. Greta's student of the week happened to fall on the same week that her teacher elected her to be student of the month. The principal came in to give her a gift certificate to Applebee's and a certificate for being such a great student. We love you Greta and all that you have accomplished.

Princess Leia Squishy

I was finally trying to organize a room in our basement that is full of baby clothes. As I was going through box after box I came across a Princess Leia costume that would fit Olivia. It was so cute I had to try it on her. I knew Cameron would love it so we kept her in it until he came home from work. Of course he loved it and had to have some pictures taken. She looks so adorable in this costume and now we know what she will be for Halloween, she is the cutest squishy little princess Leia ever!

Alina is on a Roll....

Alina has said and done some funny things in the last few months,is anyone surprised?! Just the other day she was watching a fly and she came up to me and said, "mom I'm pretty sure that fly is a witch in disguise and that it's trying to sneak in our house to kidnap me so we have to kill it." We went on a fly hunt for about 20 minutes. It took so long because she kept changing her mind on what fly was the witch.

I was having her and the kids do chores for a baby shower we were having at our home. Alina looked at me after I gave her her assignment and she said, "It's like we're your servants or something."

We went to the new WalMart by our home and Alina really wanted to buy something because Austin and Greta were. She didn't have any money so I was going to surprise her with a bag of cheetos. On our way out to the car Greta said, "Mom Alina's dress has a big bulge in it." I look down and she does have a big bulge and underneath her dress I found a pack of skittles, a beanie bear, chapstick, post-it notes, and a french tip pedicure set. I made her take everything back in and apologize. The nice old man greeting customers gave her a little lecture and had her put everything back. I just can't believe how sneaky she was, none of us saw her hide a single item.

Alina said to me "I'm going to have 5 boys and 5 girls and all the boys are going to be ugly."
