Sandy gets her big girl bed finally :)

She is very proud of her new bed (hence Clint's old bed that we painted white to match her bedroom :) She picked out tinkerbell sheets too.

An afternoon at our house

Snack time. Gavin gets in the chair all by himself now. Well, let me add that this boy is very coordinated. He climbs up and down stairs, climbs the ladder on the swing-set. Swing on his belly by himself... He climbs on TOP of the tables, you name it LOL! I told him to say cheese, and this is his cheesy smile :) How sweet he is. Princess Sandy & Clint was just chillin with his gameboy :)

Typical Soccer day :)

This is a typical soccer game or practice.... Gavin pretty much running around. He so loves balls! He has mastered dribbling already, seriously we may have another soccer player on our hands. Clint is on the field #4... Haven't been able to get too many good shots of him playing this year, but he was in the Petal Newspaper last week :)

Sandy's Dollhouse people

How sweet is this? Sandy ADORES her little people, dollhouse people, go girls, polly pockets, well you get the idea. On this day she begged for me to take a picture of her little guys that he lined all up. Notice the mom of the family has 1 arm :) Thanks to Rusty the dog :)

Clint's 6th bday Party





My baby turns 6 :( Can't believe it all has gone by so fast!!! This year Clint said he didn't want a party with all the "napkins & junk" as he put it! LOL! He clarified and said he didn't need balloons, decorations, etc. So we kinda went theme-less. And after having Gavin's 1st birthday in May and Sandy's 3rd party right behind Gavin's, I was relieved when he said he didn't want a theme! Whew! He was happy with mom's homemade round cake... Sprinkles rock! A clear reminder that it is not about the money involved or the fancy stuff, but the simple things in life are what really pleases us. So we kept things s low key as possible. He invited a handful of friends and then throw in 5 cousins and grandparents, Aunts Uncles, etc... well it gets pretty full fast!

We had pizza... Clint wanted chocolate cake. Sandy helped make it and did the sprinkles. Clint wanted puch-ups instead of typical ice cream, so I splurged on it as I wouldn't normally buy it. I must say the push ups were the hit of the party. All the kids enjoyed them and some didn't even want any cake.

Clint picked 2 of his best friends Logan and Jaxson to spend the night. this was the first time we did anything like this so after everyone left the boys set up camp upstairs... GAME TIME!

They stayed up until around 11pm I think, heck I don't know i was pooped and went to sleep, Daddy had duty that night! He eventually told the boys it was bed time and they passed out within 5 minutes!

It was a great party. It won't be too much longer that we will get to have a party for him... I'm sure in a few more years it won't be cool anymore :)

And this is what Sandy & Gavin did




Summer is coming to an end; although it really doesn't feel like it. Gavin is getting more and more into everything. I am sad that Clint is back in school, yet at the same time hoping I can get into a more structured routine. I hope to be able to get back into ebay and get back into full swing on the bow making.

This was a rainy, dreary day. Sandy was thrilled to be able to put on her new raincoat and boots and play in the rain. And, well, Gavin wasn't gonna miss out on that either :) They had fun and as you can see adore the newest addition Blue

Clints 1st Day of school (1st Grade)

Waiting for the bus...


Awe come on MOM!!!

Wow, our first grader! Clint was a bit nervous about the first day of school. He really wasn't too thrilled about going back to school... After all who wouldn't like to lounge around and watch cartoons, play video games and snack all day with mom??? LOL

Jellystone Park RV Trip










Jellystone Park! What fun we had there! Definately a great place to vacation with the kids. They had a waterpark, mini golf, outdoor theatre that played a family/kids movie at dark each night. Lots of kids. Clint made a lot of friends. Yogi Bear brought cookies & milk to our campsite one night. Sandy is missing from those pictures because she was affraid of him... But she really loved him :) The kids got to do a lot of activities... We will definately go back soon. This was our 2nd trip in our RV. Still learning the tricks of the trade but great fun, and I think when Gavin is a year or 2 older it will be even more enjoyable :)
