Celebrating Back to School

 We celebrated Back to School at Leatherbys.  Yummy!  Liv just wanted something PINK!

Mckay got BubbleGum
 Natalie got PlayDough Ice Cream, and Nick got a Cookie's and Cream Shake

Funny Boy

I had to remember this moment.  Mckay has struggled with licking his lips and having the never ending 'ring of fire' on his face.  He got some chocolate at church and ate it on the way home.  He obviously licked his lips pretty good while he ate it!  Awesome! 

Poopy in the Potty

Liv has done great at going pee-pee in the potty, but not so great at going #2.  So I bought this jammy one night and hung it up on the mirror in the family room.  So when she woke up, she could have the jammy if she went #2 in the potty.  This is her after she did it!  Way to go Livvy girl! 

Cash is 7 Months

 Cash is 7 months old!  He is such a happy baby and so much fun. 
 He is sitting on his own, rolling all over, says "dadada", laughs, and is eating rice cereal!

Back to School

We had a great summer, but I think we were all ready for school to be back in session!  
Natalie started first grade this year.  She is starting the Spanish Immersion program like her brothers.  One of these days they are all going to be carrying on a conversation without me.  I should probably be doing my own studies on Rosetta Stone every day.
Natalie has Mrs. Jorgenson and Sra. Vasquez
She was a little nervous about school today, but she has a great time.  

Mckay is in 2nd grade.  He has Mrs. McPherson and Sra. Torez.  He thinks Sra. Torez is pretty cool because there is a famous soccer player named Torez.  Awesome!
 Nick is still liking this pose!  He is in 4th this year.  He has Sr. Smithee and Sra. Luiz.  He thinks Sr. Smithee is soo funny and Sra. Luiz is quiet.  I think it is going to be a good year. 

 We were so excited... we had to do a few jumps for joy! 

Liv had to get in on the action too. 

 She has a while before she will join the kids at Harvest, but she is pretty proud of her new panties!  I am happy for her too.  Now we are back to just one baby in diapers again!!  That is a good thing. 
I love these kids!
..and I love how sweet they are with Liv
 New shoes! 
i am excited for all they will learn this year, the friends they will make, and the changes that will happen to our family as we move into a new neighborhood.

 Liv has always loved these "guys" at school.

We finally have a FOUNDATION!

 In March we decided to have Edge build a home for us in Aspen Hills.  We figured we would be in by the end of the summer!  We put the house up for sale, it sold quick!  We moved out.  Still no progress on the house.  Summer came and went and finally we have begun the actual building process.  They tell us it will be done Nov. 1!  Here's to hoping it all goes well... and quickly!

 My little brother Derek and Jenny and sweet little Penelope a few weeks ago.  The girls were excited to hold her at Grandma and Grandpa's house.  She is so beautiful! 
 Look at all the dark hair!

Yo! Waz Up?

Saturday, August 11, 2012


Love this place!  We had such a relaxing vacation in Newport this time.  Just Pool and Beach the whole time!  Loved it!  (didn't love the drive home, or the drive there if I'm honest though!)  I have been practicing shooting in manual mode only, luckily I have kids for my guinea pigs! 

Liv could play at the beach all day and be happy about it!  Natalie... not so much.  She hates the sand that tends to get stuck in every nook and cranny! 

We went to eat at a yummy place for dinner called The Great Maple.

and then we went to La Creperie.  Liv loved it!
