Who Stole the Cookie From the Cookie Jar?

It is kind of hard to ignore the chocolate on her face.

Can't Wait!

We can't wait to see our Great Grandma!
Alex made her this cute little bunny.  I also found these fun STASHES!  Thought it would be fun if the kids wore them.

I wanted to share some oldies. 
Mike and his pumpkin. (we still have it and I think it looks like him)

Alex painting her nails.  (remember those glasses)

Alex and her baby.  (we still have her)

Always the artist.

She still looks like this when she eats.

The Club

I love that this girl can play and play and play, what an imagination!
Her club and sign.

Alex and her crew playing cards in the clubhouse!

I'm so glad that I made that curtain to go around her bunk bed!

Way Excited

The kids and I are very excited for our summer trip.  Today I picked up the fabric for Alex's swimsuit cover.  There are lots of orange choices this year, but we loved the owls.
Alex is so excited that tonight she got her puppy ready for the trip, she dressed her and packed a bag.  I don't want to have to tell her how far away summer is.

Had to share the photo just too darn cute!!
Thanks for the outfit Heather B.!

Another Wedding Dance

When Mike was about seven he was in my cousin Ricks wedding. 
Mike having a dance with Corey's daughter Shelby, the flower girl.
The Groomsmen had bought Mike a bunch of jerky, candy, and gum, on the ride to the reception.

Mike terrified us when he blew this big bubble during the wedding party dance.  I was so scared that he would get it in Shelbys hair.

They had a blast!
I love all these old pictures.

New Look

A first in many many years, I took some time for myself and had my hair done.  I'm loving it so far, I feel a little like I use to.  It's been about five years since I've been blond.

A wish come true!

I love when, as a parent, you can make a wish come true!
One of the writings in Alex's packet from parent teacher conferences mentioned that she wished for orange jeans.  She wrote "I have lots of orange shirts but no orange jeans".  Well LUCKY for this Mommy that neon colors are big this year and Old Navy was clearancing out their colored jeans.  I love when I can make a wish come true and it's even better when I can do it for $6.

Kristins Wedding (2007?)

I'm not sure if I ever put these on my old blog but I was going through my cards for my camera and couldn't resist a walk down memory lane. 
WARNING-lots of pictures!
Bre was a happy and beautiful flower girl.  I don't think her smile ever left her face.

Mike was so cute but he didn't quite have the same joy his sister did.

At the head table.

They are so DARN cute.

Bad Mommy..

Strikes Again.....

Both girls cooked a meal over the weekend, and AGAIN NO pictures...Oops!

Saturday night Alex made Parmesan Chicken.  It was so yummy, and no leftovers.

Bre had picked a crockpot soup so Sunday she filled the crockpot with the fixins for Chunky Potato soup.  It was very good.  Mike has big plans for the leftovers!

Meet Mr. Food

Last night Mike made Chicken Manicotti, no leftovers at our place.  Last week Bre made a Black Bean Chicken Salad, wish I would have taken a picture I'll remember next time.
Time for these kids to learn to cook.
