The Latest

My mom is celebrating her birthday today.
She and my dad went to see The Lion King.
I hope they have a wonderful time.
I sure love you Mom.
Happy Birthday!
My boys go back to school tomorrow.
I'm excited to get back in a routine; however,
I can't believe how fast the summer has gone by.
My oldest son Andrew will be going into 4th grade.
I met his teacher last night.
Her name is Miss Bjornestad (Be-orn-stead).
Brody, my second oldest, will be going into first grade.
I met his teacher today.
Her name is Mrs. Day.
I signed up Abby and Bree for preschool,
But they won't begin school until next week.
Their teacher's name is Mrs. Dawdy.
I feel good about everyone.
I think my kids will do well.
Say a little prayer for my family would you?

Lemonade Anyone?

Andrew, Abby, Bree and their friends wanted to earn some money.
So today they decided to sell lemonade, powerade, and some suckers.

They pulled out our little picnic table

And they made an awesome sign.

After 2.5 hours of hard labor
They made almost $8 dollars.
What a bunch of entrepeneurs!

Grandma and Grandpa's Magic Touch

I don't know what it is...
But every time I come home from work lately,
Alyssa is asleep on her Grandma or Grandpa.
I can never get her to fall asleep on me!
I have a hard enough time getting her to stay near me.
Most of the time, she's up and running with the rest of the kids.
It makes me sad how fast the time has gone by since she was born.

Fly Swattin Fools

Has anyone else had a ton of flies at their house lately?
Oh my goodness...
I don't know where they all came from.
Aaron, Andrew and I have all picked up a new hobby.
Fly Swattin
Our hot pink fly swatter works like a charm.
I think I alone have killed over 20 flies in the last 2 days.

Hangin With The Girls

Abby and Alyssa were having fun playing with their barbies.
Both of them were taking turns pushing them around the house in the stroller.
Abby asked if she could take a picture of them.
(She took the picture below)
I love the stages that my children are at right now.
I wish that I could keep them little forever.

Jessie's Birthday Party

My niece had a birthday party yesterday.
As you probably could of guessed,
she had a Dora party.
My sister-in-law made this cute little map.
She also made cute Backpacks for all of the kids.
Abby had such a great time.

Baby Dixon

My friend Mandy had a baby boy in July.
Isn't he adorable?
Just wanted to congratulate her!

Finally...Family Pictures!

Finally...Family pictures!
(We waited way too long to have these taken)
My baby Alyssa was probably beginning to think she didn't belong in our family!
Heather Johnson with Glenn Ricks Photography took our pictures.
I'm really happy with the way they turned out.
Especially since my kids were so uncooperative.
