Kiah working hard to get everything tidied up for the party
Moira chose to be a princess, and despite it coming out a little large, I think it turned out pretty good. Kiah made use of Moira's old pirate costume, which was just to cute to not use again.
Checking out our friends costumes

Kiah is now the source of constant jabber. She actually knows an astonishing number of words to mommies trained ear. Her favorite word right now is apple. She seems to think that it means I want that. Moira is hard at work informing her which things are not in fact apples.
Here are some pictures of our most recent reward cupcakes

We started a chart on the wal for Moira, we have 4 main house rules and if she can follow all of the rules she can earn up to 4 stickers a day. Once she hits 15 stickers she gets to pick something fun to do. Last time it was make cupcakes, last night it was banana splits and a movie. Here's Kiah reaping the benefits of her sisters good behavior.
Here's Moira enjoying ballet class. The parents must wait outside the room, but I poked my head in for a quick shot. Moira is one in from the left. As a reward for listening and being allowed to continue ballet class Moira got to pick out a proper ballet outfit.

Moira went out with Addie and picked flowers to give Grandma for her birthday, the bouquet ended up as big as her.
Zoned out on the couch with uncle Abe after a long day.

We went to a renessance fair on sunday and the girls had a great time. Moira was really into it and whooped and hollered at all of the acts and danced her little buns off. I even managed to whip up some fairy princess skirts sat night. Moira was really into the pirate booth, which had a collection of swords for the kids to play with. She was quick to go for the killing blow.
Suki took third place in the novice division of the Disc competition, which was quite an improvement over our finish in 2008, dead last. It's a little embarassing when the event host comes in last. In addition to that Suki and Kess finished 1st and 2nd respectively in the clean your plate dog food eating contest, and Kess has the 3rd best tail wag in Kirkland. All of our contest winnings added up to some new dog toys and $50 worth of gift certificates at the local pet store. I was so busy that I took almost no pictures, but you can see a few here, plus a video put together by another club member.
All that's left is to put together notes for who ever handles the event in 2010 and a quick presentation for city council, where we hand over the check for the fundraising effort. I don't have the total, but it's somewhere around 5k.

Kiah found this hat Grandpa Will gave her for Christmas and wore it for a couple of hours. It was pretty cute so of course I had to get some pictures.
