Feelin' Arsty For the New Year!

I saw this great idea on I thought it was awesome, but NOT for $40 a kit (plus shipping!)!! I couldn't believe it! Sooo I decided to head to the craft store and buy everything there! I spent $15! Wow! I didn't even have to pay shipping! Hee hee! So here is my project...

First, paint the 10x10 canvases with four colors of your choice! Then, get your put your kiddos hand prints on them. Um yeah, that's about it. Easy huh? I think it turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself! I think it looks great in the playroom! And the kids helped, so they love it as well! It was an easy project, and so dang cute!! Go me!

Ready for Winter?

I hope you are all ready, because it is coming!!! I think we are skipping fall this year and heading straight to winter! My kids are sure ready! They are already donning their great winter hats. Connor calls his hat, the "sock hat" and Clara calls her hat, "the hat that is like Connor's". Hilarious! I am busy busy busy getting ready for my sister's baby shower this weekend. (Thank you Amy C. for the game sheets!!! I don't think I thanked you!!!) It should be fun!!! I am making some yummy cupcakes, which I will post the recipes here later... pear cupcakes and orange cupcakes. Holy Freaking Delicious!!!! Well, have a Happy Fall/Winter!!!!!! :)

Summer, don't end please

I love summer. I love the heat. I love pools and sprinklers. I love vacations. I love my garden because I love homegrown veggies.I love flip flops and shorts. I love tanned skin. I love Popsicles. I love sun shine and green hills. Here are a couple of fun moments from the last few days...

The kids LOVE going into the garden and picking the veggies! Clara has a new love for tomatoes! That's my girl!

Our neighbors went to Disneyworld and brought back some fun things for the kids! It is so sweet that they thought of them!

We made dirt cups (chocolate pudding, oreos, and gummy worms)! Here is the aftermath. Ew.

My Future Photographer again

Connor "found" his camera again. It has been fun! Everything is a photo opp for that kid. Even the tv.

I think this is the only picture I have of the two of them that they are posing nicely for. Only because it is Connor's camera. Sigh...

Self shot! He is totally my son!

Mommy and her bra sticking out. Hot.
Mommy and Clara

She was ticked because she didn't want her picture taken. She wanted to TAKE the picture!
His idea. So cute.

Daddy's weird.
Again, Connor's idea. Love it.

Summer of Fun!

We have been sooo busy, there has been NO time for blogging! Here are a few pics to let you all know I am still alive!
Here are a couple of pics from my 10 year high school reunion. There were SO many I couldn't post them all! What a lot of fun!!!

Fun at the water park!

Hopefully these can tide you all (3 of you) over until I get back into blogging!

What? I blog? Since when?

Who has time to blog anymore? Apparently not me. The beginning of June we went to Lincoln City, Oregon for a week with our friends and their kiddos. We had a great time!! We went to the Tillamook Cheese Factory (mmmm ice cream), played in the ocean (kind of... it was really cold!), played in the sand, flew kites, went to the Oregon Aquarium, went to a lighthouse, saw tons of seals, went in the hot tub (that overlooked the ocean, ahhhhh), and ate a ton of great food! We had a blast! The kids were in heaven! There was NOBODY on the beach were we stayed. We had it almost to ourselves! It was awesome! The beach house was wonderful! It had HUGE windows in the living and dining rooms overlooking the ocean, nice deck to sit on and watch the waves, and a nice area upstairs for the kids to play and watch movies at night. It was perfect! The outlet mall was so much fun! Mellisa and I hit that without husbands or kids and enjoyed ourselves immensely! :) The boys got to go golfing twice and I think they had fun too! It is definitely a trip that will have to be duplicated in the future! Nothing beats good friends and good fun!!
Amazing sunset from the deck
