Lil Pumpkin

We have the privilege to do respite care for a 3 mo. old baby. Isn't he cute!!?? He was here for Halloween and he'll be back this weekend and for Thanksgiving. He's with a great foster family now who go out of town a lot so he stays with us. Welcome Stanley!!

Soccer fun!

All 3 kids are playing soccer! We've had beautiful fall weather which makes
watching games so pleasant.

Mady is such a go-getter and really hustles for the ball.

Connor rarely gets to the ball, but he scored the last game. He was so proud of himself!!

Tori does great and it's so fun to watch her play, I'm a proud momma!

All because two people fell in LOVE....

We just returned home from a trip to Colorado for our dear niece's wedding! Shawna FINALLY found her man and they had a BEAUTIFUL wedding! We had so much fun...we stayed with Roger and Joyce, visited the Air Force Academy, had car problems, borrowed a car, did some swimming, celebrated Tori and Laurel Joy's birthdays, had lunch with Shawna and Ben, went to rehearsal and BBQ afterwards, and danced the night away at the reception!! Our girls were flower girls along with their cousin.

Mady, Laurel Joy and Tori did a great job!

Shawna with her dad.
Connor waiting patiently for the wedding to begin.

I caught Mady under the table peeking in the gifts!!

Tori dancing with cousin Luke.

The cake was placed on a tree stump, decorated with aspen leaves.
The theme was fall with very natural and organic elements. I loved it!!

Passed down to the next generation,

Famous at last....

The kids got to ride in a LIMO this morning to school. What fun!! Our good friend knew of someone who had a limo and he arranged it. Thank you Lyndsay!!! Even better, its a HUMMER party-mobile!

My crazy daughter!

Mady went to a birthday party and the Reptile Man was there. She's so brave! I hate snakes!

Go Green!

So, I did one good thing for Earth Day...I watched Oprah!! No, really, on her show it was about Living Green. They showed how to pack an earth-friendly lunch. Since both my girls take their lunch and someday Connor will, I went to this website and ordered reusable sandwich bags. I know they're pricey, but in the long-run more cost effective than buying ziploc. I think the kids will have fun eating out of them too!

(come in various patterns)
