We are back to Blogging

What have the Hoyer's been up to the last 3 month??????
It seems like we are always on the go, hopefully things will start to slow down for us.

Since my last post was in August I will just quickly recap what we've been doing.

* Girls were finishing up the summer at home with the sitter during the week, They had alot of fun hanging out at the pool right here at our complex.
**For the first time in over 10 years, I got to go to the Iowa State Fair. It was so much fun. Mom, Allie, Kristin and Melissa & her girls came to stay with us and we all went to the fair together. We can't wait to go again next year.
*** Kayla and Madi both started new schools. Kayla is in the 3rd grade at Westridge Elementary and Madison is in 4 yr old pre-school at Traditions Childcare Center. They both adjusted well their new schools.
****Kayla turned 8 on her 2nd day of school. We had a fun Birthday Party for her the weekend after her birthday in Sioux Falls her South Dakota Friends. We took 5 girls to the indoor water park for a night full of swimming, pizza and lots of giggling.

* We spent Labor Day weekend in Sabula with the whole Hoyer Family- We always enjoy going to the River City.
** My Birthday was on the 11th, the girls and I went back to Armstrong to watch the A-R football game. We are so excited to watch my 2 cousins play on the team again this year.
*** Chris and I had a weekend get-away with his parents and Erica & Anthony to Chicago. The women enjoyed a weekend full of great shopping and the guys highlight was going to the Chicago Bears vs Pittsburgh Steelers Football game on Sunday. Since Denny is a huge Bears fan and Chris is a Huge Steelers fan, we knew it was going to be fun.
**** I also stuck away to Florida for a couple days for a work trip, the weather was beautifull, but since I was there for work, I did not get to enjoy it as much as I would have liked.
***** Chris & I celebrated our 5th wedding Anniversary on the 25th. We were not able to celebrate together since I was in Sunny Florida and he was home with the kids.
****** Madison turned 4 on the 26th. She got to take cupcakes to school to share with her friends. As soon as they picked mom up from the airport we headed to Chuck E Cheese to celebrate Madi's birthday.

* For the first time in a long time, we stayed home for a weekend..... How relaxing...
** Last weekend we road tripped to Armstrong. My whole family was home so it was great. We all went to watch the football game on Friday night. (Let's just say Tyler and Dakota had their own cheering section!!) Our new motto at my mom's is "Most people would call it Chaos, we call it visiting" It is so great when we are all home.
*** My little sister Kristin turned the big 21!!! We had a amazing time celebrating with her.

WoW............. We are busy people.... and we don't stop. This weekend Chris & I are going to be in South Dakota visiting our friends and helping our old babysitter, Emily celebrate her 21st birthday. Madi is going to spend the weekend at Grandma Coleen's and Kayla is going to be spending the weekend with Grandma Brenda.

I hope this has us all updated.
(I know Grandpa Arden is so happy I spent the time to update!! Love you Grandpa- Thanks for checking in)
