Is It Fall Yet?

Sometimes I have a one track mind.

A lot of times I have a one track mind.

Case in point: all I can think about this morning is this.

picture props and a yummy lookin recipe here

Anyone else feelin' it?

I am slow, and it's ok

I know I'm way behind the times so I am sure this is old hat for you all, but I'm in heaven reading this blog.

There is just something about the fall that makes me all excited to do "projects". I currently have a small project I've been working at and I hope to finish it up soon because I can't wait to show you! It not only has sentimental value but the aesthetic value is gonna jump up my family room just a notch. Its a win, win situation all around.

I'm sighing blissfully as we speak, or type. Whatever. I need to get this project finished pronto!

As a friend {not so} tactfully put it: "You Guys Need a New Hobby"

The air is becoming crisp and cool so fall is definitely peeking it's head around the corner. We all know what that means around these parts: it's party time.

Here's the current countdown:

6 days until Brynnlee's birthday
14 days until Ella's birthday
20 days until Kaden's birthday

Yes, there will be unimaginable amounts of cake baked, decorated, and consumed in the next three weeks. I'm quite giddy just thinking about it (and the decorating should be pretty fun too).

Utah 2009

The best and worst thing about Utah is that fact that we know way too many people there. Every town we drive by I think to myself "Oh we should totally stop and see ______ ." Maybe next time.

It's hard to get it all crammed into a 3-day weekend, but we did manage to have quite a bit of fun seeing my newest neice Tasia, checking out my parents soon-to-be-finished house, staying Alicia's new house, stuffing our faces with cookies and pop at my sister Adrienne's new-to-her house, some doing a little rafting, watching the miracle BYU game (who'da guessed that?), browsing each and every aisle of Toys R Us with 8 children, and eating at the Red Iguana which was featured on Diners, Drive-in's and Dives, celebrating two first birthday's and seeing cousins wear themselves ragged trying to stretch every last second of play time. Whew! I'm exhausted.

School Days

I'm still around.... Click Here

School Days

Kaden's first day of Kindergarten.
{The sun was in his eyes, but if I turned him around I got a shadow- you can't win}
The family shot.
Waiting at the bus stop.
Hopping on the bus.
Kaden, Daphne, and Gabe following Ms. Whitney, the vice principal, to the kindergarten playground.
Waiting in line.
Greeting Sra. Hanan.
Hopping off the bus.
He LOVED his first day. Even though he couldn't remember anything he did other than play on the playground and eat snacks he said he had a great time. He named off all the kids he recognized from church and t-ball, and can't wait to go back again.
Watch out world!
