End of season party...

On friday we got to go to Chucke Cheese's for Kylan's end of season party. The kids had a lot of fun, and I ate way too much of the cardboard pizza! Here are some highlights of the night.

Here we are in our fun matching festive shirts. We got the idea from family fun magazine and they were super easy to do!

Kylan eating with his team. It's pretty blurry, those boys didn't want to sit still!

Hannah enjoyed her drive with Chucke!

Kylan was proud of his trophy! Look at that smile!

Looks like it's time for me to go back to school! I thought I was doing pretty well. Oh well, I'm not as smart as I think I am :)


I got tagged so here is how this works. Post the 4th Pic from the 4th folder in your "My Pictures" folder. This one brings back memories! It was Christmas of 2005 and I was trying to get a good pic for the Grandparents :)

I tag whoever feels like doing this! :)

We are getting new carpet! We finally made a decision! After several trips for different samples and lots of begging on my part :) We have ordered it and we should be able to get it installed within a week or so. Persistance does pay off! I don't have a pic of it, but soon you will see the before and after. Stay tuned! :)

In the downy dumps...

I'm not exactly sure what it is, but I feel depressed. It's probably a combination of many things. Probably at the top of the list is the fact that my baby isn't much of a baby anymore. My little itsy bitsy isn't so bitsy. She's growing up way too fast. And I did finally just wean her off of her last feeding, so that's probably the biggest thing that would be wrong with me. My hormones are going crazy! I feel so sad though that I don't have that connection with her anymore. Geez, just typing this is making me blubber! Anyway, then there are the holidays coming up, which are great, but not so great without family. My parents will be coming for Thanksgiving, and I am way excited about that. But who knows when we will see our family's so stinkin expensive to travel so far. Oh how I wish I could move Midland closer to my family. And another thing that's bugging me is deciding on carpet to put in our house. It seems like every sample I bring home has something wrong with it. The ones I like are too expensive and I don't want to just settle for the cheap stuff. Why can't I just find the perfect one? Is that so much to ask? Don't worry about answering, it just feels great to get it out! So that's what is bothering me today, along with other things, but I don't want to be too depressing. On a happier note, it's only a month now until I get to see my parents! Yippee!! I leave you with a couple pics of my little peanut, just to show you how small she really was.

Look how small she was, this was a newborn size dress and she was drowning in it :)

This is her right after her first birthday

So true, so true...

I found Caleb a shirt on the clearance rack and I just had to have it for him. I'm not sure if you can read it in the pics, so I'll tell you what it says. "Mr. Mischief...Trouble is my middle name." It is him to a T! But I try not to point it out to him too much, you know the whole labeling thing. Maybe he'll grow out of it, right? I can dream, can't I?

That look says, "Take the picture Mom!"

Look at that face! Trouble!

Check out the silly smile

Baby blue eyes...

I got this picture at Kylan's soccer game the other night. Isn't she just precious?

My cup runneth o'er...

No's my toilet! Yep, you read it right, my toilet over flowed! It has been making wierd noises the last couple days and gurgling when I flushed it. So today it decided to overflow, and it wasn't a pretty site! Let's just say I was disinfecting the room the rest of the night! Oh and it happened while I was trying to make dinner and get the kids fed before Kylan's soccer game. It was fabulous! Moral of the story is..."Don't piss off your toilet, or it will get you in the end!" I know, I have a potty mouth! Ha Ha, I kill me! Sorry, it's been a long day :) Hope that you all had a better one!

Come one, come all....

I had a crazy idea just now. I made this cute bow holder for Hannah and some cute clippies. I thought, "Hey, why not see if anybody else wants one, or two, or however many?" So if anyone is interested in one or both (and some korker bows will be coming soon) just let me know. I am willing to make them for you and it won't cost too much. Just let me know what colors and I can figure out the price. I guess I'll see how many are interested and see what I can come up with for the deal. It's super cute and keeps those bows and clips handy for doing cute hairdos! Just leave me a comment and we can go from there! Thanks!

Here is the bow holder, sorry the picture is kind of blurry.

This is made with the 1/4 inch ribbon. This clippie works good for a one year old or younger. I will be making bigger ones soon for older girls.

This shows you the size, just big enough to cover the clip and still be cute!

Yet another project...

But this one was finished in one day! WAHOO!!! Go me!! I just thought I'd share my wonderful artwork with you. I painted these pictures on Saturday while listening to conference, it was very theraputic! :) And now the boys have something to hang in their room, finally!

Sports balls to go along with the blankets mom made. (well one is in the works!) The one on the end that you can't really see is a part of a basketball, and my favorite one.

I'm new at this

It's different having a little girl. I am not used to cutesy hair dos and such. That's probably why I just stick to the cute headbands and clippies! So I got this idea from a friend because this doing girls hair stuff is new to me. Thanks for the idea Laura! So I tried out some piggy tails on Hannah, in her case they might be called mullet tails :) She was pretty squirmy so please don't laugh. It was our first try, and we'll see how long they last. She doesn't seem to mind stuff in her hair, so that's good. In fact, the other day her hair clip came out and she picked it up and handed it to me. Then she stood there until I put it back in! She's too cute!

It's kind of hard to see, but there are little pony tails there

Here's a shot of the back, I need some work on the parting :)

She was getting sick of the picture taking, check out that glare!

And I don't know if you can zoom in or not mom, but I finally made that lady bug shirt with the iron ons that you gave me, was that really a year ago? HAHA
