Happy Birthday Lauren, and Uncle Scott! I felt so bad that Lauren didn't get the cake with all the fun stuff on top, but she can't have all that nummy stuff. So here's just the cake with no frosting, it's so moist and delicious I always eat it without the frosting. Happy B-day baby girl!
I can't believe Lauren is already 4! Seems just like yesterday she was turning 1. She was so excited and couldn't wait to open presents. Her fav present was this stuffed unicorn.
Lately I have been horrible about updating the blog. So I'll just give you a quick run down of all that has happened in the last 2 months. Joe got his cow elk and was super excited about that. I am excited to have some meat. We went over to Missoula for Thanksgiving. Had a good time with the family. Had a lot of fun shopping. Me and a friend discovered our new favorite place to salvage some crafty stuff! So much fun. Finished another craft fair. That went great! Here's a pic of one of my fav things I did!
Taylor our drama queen. Gotta love that face! Just carving some pumpkins!
Mean while Austin is just hanging out! So cute!
Finished product. They turned out great girls, good job! Joe and I joke every year, why do we do this to ourselves! Usually it's just us sitting at the table carving away, while they run around. Oh well!
Halloween party at Taylor's school. Here is one of her best buds Brooklyn. Those two I tell you, were in trouble! I was lucky to help out and decorate for the party. Following they had a Halloween Concert.
Lauren you look so stinking cute. You can just tell she is excited. Look at that smile!
My 50's girl. Looking adorable as ever.
My little cow, got milk?
Here the kids are at the church doing the "Trunk or Treat" They had a great time.
Love, love, love this. Just a great example of all the fun stuff you can put in these frames. Special thanks to my wonderful hubby who did such a great job cutting all the wood. Couldn't have done it without yah babe! So here it is, the last of the crafts. So happy to be done! I promise I won't post anymore of this crap on here.
Plexi frames. The Cream one I am going to hang.
Check out the recipe card holders! Snazzy right?
Super fun Christmas countdown
Here are some Halloween crafts. I finished them a while ago, but...
Here is a house I did with the faux stone. My friend requested I put this on here for reference. So here you go, hope this helps. If you want to know how to make it look like the wall is cracking and the stone is showing through just call. Hope this is enough.
This is some stuff I've been busy working on. If you guys see anything you like, let me know. Remember Christmas is coming up! This is probably just 1/3 of the finished stuff. I'll post more as I go along. Craft fair is in 2 weeks. Also busy making little baby and girl bracelets. Super fun. Did not think I would enjoy making jewelery, but it's a new hobby that is super addictive! So here I have magnetic photo boards, super fun right? I love them! And the live, laugh, love frames are thick enough that way you can stack them on top of one another.
Some fun little Thanksgiving decor. You can't see the plate on the plate stand very well. The message board comes with magnets & you can write on it with a dry erase pen too. It has a hook to hang on the wall if you like.
Not the best pic sorry. The pink sign say's "the princess is in" The plaque with the flower is my personal fav.
Here is a magnetic board. I hope this doesn't sell cuz I want it for my place.
Here you go Angie, I finished them. I kept on forgetting to send you a pic of the finished product.
So here we are at a local pumpkin patch yesterday. It wasn't exactly what we had expected. The pumpkins were not in a patch. Due to the cold weather they had lost a lot of pumpkins, so they just laid out what was left. The girls still had a lot of fun picking them out. We will be carving our pumpkins on Monday. Super excited. For Halloween Taylor will be a 50's girl, Lauren will be Snow White and Austin will be a cow. I love Halloween, it's so fun! While we were at the pumpkin patch we got this bizarre looking pumpkin. I guess it's the kind you use for pumpkin pie. So Joe was thrilled, we went home cooked it up and it made the most delicious pie ever! He was so excited we made two. A lot easier than I thought it would be.
So Daddy insisted that we put this video up of little man. Not the best video and yes dad is on the phone in the background. Austin has been doing this cute noise for a while now. But lately it's louder! He's so cute. Joey wants the family in California to see this, since they haven't met him yet.
So I am sure most of you have heard of Lauren swallowing the quarter. I have the x ray but my computer does not have the program to open it. I will continue to try to figure it out. She is doing good. She is so sweet, she keeps on apologizing for swallowing the money. It was super funny when we rushed to the doctor is Billings. The doctor asked her if she swallowed money and she said, "Yes, I've had a bad day". It was cute. Poor thing is making progress with doctors. She doesn't scream when one comes into the room now. So were very proud of her for that. I'll keep you all posted on how things come out. Lol!
Little Olivia Marie is here! My brother Scott & sister in law Laura had her September 30th. 7 lbs 8 oz. Congrats to the both of them. Can't wait to meet her. So crazy my brother is a dad now. She looks a lot like her daddy.
Grandma and Papa came over to help watch the kids while I had a few doctor appts. We had a good time. Getting a little Wii action. Look at that action shot. There's papa getting into it. I believe they are bowling? They had fun playing together.
I haven't had the chance to post much. My parents came into town to help out with the kids, while I had a doctor appt. So excited to say as of 9/9/09 at 9 am our house has officially been sold! We keep talking on how its going to take a while for it actually to sink in. We are super excited! I have to say Taylor made a really cute comment the other day. We were just hanging out in our lovely town house. She looks at me and says,"Mom do you ever get the feeling that this is not home?" I said, "all the time." It made me happy knowing that she knows what "home" feels like. I think we all will miss our "white house" (as Lauren calls it), but we will find a new "home" here soon. We hope. Other than that not a whole lot is going on with us. Taylor is enjoying schools. I think Lauren and I will do a home school preschool, here in a few months. Austin is just a happy little guy, such a joy! Joe is working a lot. Like now he's working 16 hours straight. Do not know how he does it. And as for me, just getting crafts ready for a craft fair. Me and a friend have some really cute stuff! I'll post a picture of our display table. So were all just trying to stay busy!
Here we are at Greenough Park. It is so pretty there. Thanks to my mom for taking these pic's! The girls had a great time. I think the girls favorite part was throwing the rocks into the river. One of my favorite pictures is of the girls holding hands walking.
Taylor was so excited to get back to school. She is a big first grader now. Mrs. Myers is her teacher, and Taylor loves her. I have to admit that I too was excited for school to start. I guess it's a annual thing here, moms get together for a celebratory breakfast. We had some wonderful crepes. Lauren is a little sad about Taylor being gone during the day. But I think it's a good break for those two. Watching Taylor walk away I got a little chocked up!
