Emily’s First Gymnastics Class

On November 5, 2011 Emily had her first gymnastics class, Enrique and I were pretty excited for her to go.  After seeing how much Emily loved dancing at Aunt Marisa’s wedding we decided we should see about getting her into dance class or something.  The only thing that I could find for her age bracket was Gymnastics, so we enrolled her.  I was worried that she might not like and I didn’t want to force her to do it.  But all that worry was for nothing, she LOVED it!!!!!!!!!  In fact she cried when we took her off the trampoline and she cried as we were leaving.  Mommy and Daddy, I think, had as much fun as Emily did!!  So, every Saturday this month at 9 a.m. you will find us at Gymnastics!

Emily Sleeping - Nov. 5. 2011

We had to wake Emily up to go to her first gymnastics class, this is what she looked like when we went in to wake her up.

Getting Ready for her first Gymnastics Class

Emily all ready to go.

Waiting for Gymnastics to start

Running to warm up for gymnastics class

Emily with her ribbons running for warm up.  She really enjoyed this part, she was getting excited.


Still running!

Stretching at Gymnastics

Stretching with Ms. Whitney.  Emily did well with this for her first time.  She kissed her shin, smelt her toes and reached for the stars (these were what Ms. Whitney used to help them understand how to do the stretches, it was cute).


Trying the bars for the first time, she wasn't sure what to think of these

After we warmed up and stretched out then it was time for the bars.  Emily was not sure what to do with these – she will get it….

She would say wee for this part

Tumbling as part of the circuit.  When she would do this step she would laugh and say Weeeeeeeeeeeee!  (I think Ethan taught her that being Mario for Halloween)

Trying to line her hands up

The trampoline was Emily’s FAVORITE part.  She loved to run up and down the trampoline and she liked to look at herself in the mirror while she was on it.

Sliding – Emily liked this part too.

After the circuit we had free time, Emily got to do anything that she wanted.  Emily spent most of her time on the trampoline.

Dunking, she was an old pro!!

Emily in free time, Daddy was helping her dunk the basketball.  Emily was pro at this, she picked up the ball and Daddy did not even have to show her what do.  The people in the lobby watching her were laughing.

Silverstone Ward Trunk or Treat

Our ward had their Annual Trunk or Treat this weekend.  We had a chili cook off and a corn bread cook off with it.  I made a pot of chili for the show and we took some candy down to the church.  I am sad to say that we did not decorate our car (there was just too much going on this weekend for me to figure out something for that too).  So, we just handed out candy.  Marisa, Christian, Elon, Sierra and Austin joined us for the party.  There was so much to do at the party.  There was the chili and corn bread along with popcorn, games, cotton candy, line dancing, face painting and cotton candy (Emily LOVED the cotton candy – just like her Mommy).  Fun was had by all.  The kids were all really good about looking out for each other.  Christian and Elon helped me hand out candy at the car, so that I would not be all by myself there while the others went and got candy!  Christian was dressed as the Marshmallow man from Ghost Busters and EVERYBODY loved his costume.  We had people asking if they could have their picture taken with him and everybody wanted to touch it to see what it was like.  It was really funny.  In one of the pictures below I posed with his mask on (I smiled for the picture and  then realized that nobody could see it, oops!).  Emily was a lady bug, and a darn cute one at that…..  I made her tutu, sewed some bows on a red shirt, converted a pair of pink fairy wings (from the $1 section at Target) to red and sewed bows on those too, and hooked pipe cleaners to a headband and made some yarn puffs as the antennae (it turned out cute – I think at least), oh and we used the really cute tights that Grandma Trevino got her that are black sparkle tights.  Emily got lots of compliments and had TONS of fun with her cousins – she can’t wait for Halloween night!!  October 30, 2011.

The Trevino Annual Pumpkin Carving Party

Each year we have a pumpkin carving party at our house.  I love to have all our family over and have fun!!  This year we got to do it on a Saturday, which worked out really well for us.  We were not as rushed getting things done and we got to carve the pumpkins in the light of day instead of in the dark.  There are always lots of cute ideas that get used for the pumpkins.  This year we had a frog, leaves, a banana, an apple, a skull, lots of silly faces and of course a Cowboys star.  We had homemade chicken noodle soup for dinner and tons of goodies to go with it.  Every year more and more people join us for the festivity and I love that.  Emily had tons of fun playing with all the cousins and friends that came over.  Can’t wait for next year!!
