The kids

Just a few random shots of my kidlets!

Of course Ellie is crawling now!

Here she is enjoying Daddy's hair.

Picture update!

I have a bunch of pictures to upload! Again I try to keep up but sometimes with our oh so reliable internet the pictures won't load. I really can't wait to have cable again! Anyway, here are a bunch of pictures I have been waiting to share. :)

Here are the last pictures from our garden. We had one pumpkin plant take off and do well (out of about 20 that came up). Here are the three pumpkins it made and some of the end of the season tomatoes.

Here is a picture of Muffin Tin Monday. We of course didn't get to show it on Monday but here it is anyways. The kids liked it. I am not sure it really made Kaden eat more or not but he enjoyed it. The theme was apples but I added more. There is applesauce, apples, peanut butter, crackers, pepperoni, cheese, turkey and graham crackers.

Here is the creek behind our house. We have had mostly rainy days for September and the creek has been running. So Meghan and I went out to get a few pictures. If you can't tell there is a drop there to get down to it.

Nathan found this spider on our light pole and started looking it up. It is a Garden spider. It has been in this spot for a couple of months. He has been teaching Meghan about the spider and Kaden goes out with them to watch it. They will feed it crickets and watch it bite them and wrap it up. After the one had been on the pole for a while a second one came also. By reading about it and the size of them they learned the second spider was the male and the first was the female. Soon after the male came there was an egg sack made. (I forgot to get a picture of that) The male has moved off the pole and made a new web in the grass and then they have switched webs a couple times. So here are a couple pictures of that. How is that for living science?? :)

Ellie is 6 Months!

On September 10th Ellie turned 6 months! I took a few pictures of course! She is rolling over, sitting up on her own, she scoots backwards and has moved a few "steps" forward crawling. She still gets frustrated trying to crawl but she will be all over the place shortly. She is getting more vocal and I have heard her saying "dadadada" and "nananana". She can hold her bottle and get her own binky. She likes playing with her toys and loves her brother and sister. She gets so happy to see them. She is a very happy baby but sensitive too. She doesn't like loud noises like Daddy sneezing or the vacuum cleaner.

Art at my house.

This weeks blog hop is "show off your art". I really like creative, artistic things. That doesn't mean I am some great artist at all, it's just what I am attracted to. When I was 20 or so I went to school to do nails. The part I liked the most was painting pictures on people's nails. After I had my daughter Meghan I started creating cakes which I LOVE. It allows me to have a creative outlet and is just so fun. Plus you get to eat it! Now I don't make cakes as often, but I have started scrapbooking (about 2 years ago). I love to scrapbook because it is like a journal of your life. I get to be creative and tell about my kids at the same time. I have so much fun.
So today I am going to share some of my favorite cakes and then some of my favorite scrapbooking pages. There is also a cutting board I altered for a swap. It was for someone that decorates her kitchen in a Coke theme.

Here are some pictures I had to add. Meghan (7 years old) made an elephant and a cat with clay. I though they were so cute! She did a great job.

Blog Hop - Stamp on a Layout

Here is the newest Blog Hop Challenge. We are showing stamping on a layout.

Here is my layout. The stamping is the bright orange swirl pattern on the light orange cardstock. I did a two pager to fit all the pictures. This was a trip to the Arizona State Fair. Meghan talked Nate into getting into the kiddie train with her. It was so funny!

Now that you have laughed with me... :) Click on the Scrappy Blog Hop button on the right and check out my friend Devon's layout. Enjoy!
