We spent Thanksgiving with the Barnett side this year. It was held at a church in Layton. Janna and Alan had prepared a bunch of wooden snowmen for families to decorate and take home. Dinner was yummy. I appreciated Uncle Dale's smoked turkey he brought again this year--delicious! Matthew filled up of turkey, rolls, Jell-O, and pumpkin pie. Immediately after dinner, we drove down to St. George. Mom and Dad were in Texas, helping Chris and Gabby with Eva since Gabby had surgery to remove a tumor. (Benign, thank goodness.)
*She loves tumbling! Loves to stretch and practice her tricks.
*She is the little mother. She takes good care of Matthew, even though they sometimes get in tiffs.
*Her teacher, Mme Louk, says she wishes she could clone Mira because she is such a great student. Very attentive and a hard worker.
*Ella has told us how Mira's French is really good.
*Mira loves to help without being asked. She will pitch in many times just because she sees the need. And she'll often ask if she can help me. It warms my heart.
*She loves to laugh. And I love to hear her laugh.
*She has been spending more time in books lately. She's been reading the Ever After High series, which she can't get enough of.
*She had a goal to work on her times tables to get them down really well. She'd put in time everyday working on them.
*She loves to keep her room tidy. It drives her nuts sometimes, sharing a room that can't always be in order as she'd like it.
*Fashion is fun! Mira loves a cute, girly outfit.
*Mira is wanting to grow out her bob haircut. She wants to be able to do more with her hair, like she sees Ella does sometimes.
*Mira just did her standing back tuck for the first time. She was stoked!
