First Day of School

I can't believe that we are heading back to school already. It seems like the summer just flew right by and we missed it.
Kylie is a big third grader now. So hard to believe that she is in the same class that I teach now.
Her new teacher is Mrs. Duffin.

Zach was mad because he wanted to go to school with us. He kept saying, "I go you!" So he was not about to get his picture taken. That is why I am in the picture with him.

Back to School gift for Kylie's teacher.

Kylie wanted to take something to her teacher for the first day of school, and I saw this cute idea on one of the blogs that I follow. I will have to see if I can find out which one it was.

Anyway so you take fortune cookies and half cover them in chocolate.
We used purple because that is Kylie's teachers favorite color.

After the decorating, we put it into this cute chinese take out box with a sign that said, "I'm so fortunate to have you as a teacher!"

We also sent her with a Pepsi since that is also her drink of choice. Just like me!

Cookie Decorating at the Fair

I took the kids down to the park for the cookie decorating contest. Let's just say that there were more kids there than they planned for, and they had to cut all the cookies in half.
Zach had lost all interest in putting anything on his cookie that he had it almost gone by the time the had the frosting even out on the table.

The finished product.

24th of July revisited part 2

On the Sunday before everyone went home mom wanted to get a quick updated picture of everyone. For 8 little ones to all sit at the same time for a picture they did pretty good. I am not saying they were all angels and everything was perfect, but they did pretty good.
From L to R: Kinsey, Rylee, Allie, Sydnee, Kylie, Nathan, Zachary, and Brailie

The whole clan.
Kalen, Kinsey, Kelly, Carrie, Zachary, Kylie, Dad, Mom, Rylee, Nathan, Ryan, Tristen, Sydnee, Allie, Greg, Heather, and Brailie. (Mandy is missing cause she did not want to have her picture taken.)
The kids all had a fun time being able to play and run around with each other in the new big house.

24th of July revisited

While we were visiting Grandma and Grandpa in their new house in Monroe, the last day the kids were able to help with a little re/un decorating of the wallpaper. Kylie and Zach had a blast!
