Fall 2013 - A Review

Lots of fun activity this much that I haven't had time to blog!  Lia headed back to school in September. This is her first year of kindergarten (because her birthday is late in the year, she will actually attend two years before 1st grade). She is once again loving her teacher and friends at school:

Soon after school started, we were invited to a birthday party for a set of twins in her class. These girls hosted their party at a working farm which also includes a petting zoo and horses. Lia was super brave and took her very first REAL horse ride on a very tall horse!
Along came mid-October and we had a very special trip planned to Disneyland with grandma and grandpa! We met them in Anaheim and had a total blast for three days. Lia was in Princess heaven meeting all her favorite characters, especially her current favorite - Rapunzel:
Of course, right after our Disney trip came...Halloween! For the first time in a couple of years, Lia decided NOT to be a princess (guess she's gotten those jollies out at Disney)...and chose to be a Panda for Halloween. She and Daddy had a great time running around the neighborhood and even ran into a few of Lia's schoolmates along the way. What a difference four years makes, huh?:
And what comes after Halloween? Lia's birthday of course!!! Our big girl turned 5 and had a party with her class at school, as well as a family party over her birthday weekend. She picked the theme of her party as the "minions" (from the movie Despicable Me).
