Good Times

What is Carson waiting for with eager anticipation?

Jolly Rancher lollipops! I got this idea from my Family Fun magazine. You just place 3 jolly ranchers together on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake at 250 for 6 minutes.

My kids are goofballs. What's goofier than wearing your brother's unders on your head? Yep it's a clean pair and I like that she had the good sense to turn them inside out:)

Carson's "truck hat"

Carson's hair is longer in the back due to a grown out Mohawk. He has crazy morning hair when he gets up!

A happy moment right before we head out the door for school. After this shot was taken Kate was none to pleased that Carson photo bombed her.

Kate got her summer do last Saturday, Even though she looks like a brooding teenager in these pictures, (yikes!) I thought it showed off her cute little cut pretty well.

Photo tip:  if you ever want to get a picture of your kids that looks like they are super sweet to each other, give them a video game to play that they are both VERY interested in. In the 2 seconds that they aren't fighting over the game, snap the picture.

I caught these sweet scenes from my back porch tonight:)

My back yard corner which was previously unruly has been transformed thanks to my brother Burke and my good friend Jared. Burke did all of the heavy lifting by filling in the ponds with dirt and moving ginormous rocks and Jared finished it off for me with his mad landscaping skills. My own little quiet spot that I need to use before it gets too hot:)


God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
