Punkin Pickin'

We had a great family day yesterday. Chick-fil-a for lunch and then up to Murray Family Farms to visit with the animals and pick some pumpkins. The kids had a blast going through the spider maze, playing in the corn kernels, and the girls especially LOVED feeding the goats.

It was a little warm and I cannot wait for the time of year where we need scarfs and hats. Wishful thinking in Bakersfield I think.

3rd Annual Apple Day @ Veterans Elementary

Apples for breakfast, apples for lunch, apples to eat to munch and crunch!!

Today was the 3rd Annual Veterans Elementary Kindergarten Apple Day Program. Tyler did awesome. They sang songs about apples and we got to share apple pie with all the parents. Being Tyler's class head room mom, I was in charge of getting everything organized for this special day. I was a little stressed, but thanks to awesome parents, we had a great morning.

Twinkle Toes and Tappy Shoes

Today was Kate's first day of DANCE with Linda Larma's Dance Academe. She did wonderful and LOVED every second of it. It was so exciting to see her light up and enjoy something as much as I do, and that it was DANCE that brought that out in her. (I think she gets that from her Mommy) She looked so cute doing her tap moves and to see how she would watch the teacher so she could master the exact moves she was trying teach her. After about 20 minutes of tap, the girls slipped on their ballet shoes and gracefully started walking across the studio. I am so excited for her and if I could afford it, she would be at the dance studio every day!!

Tyler's First Day of Kindergarten
August 24, 2009
Tears were shed, but not by him. My little boy is in school. I cannot believe how fast the time has gone by. I can remember getting up in the middle of the night to feed him. And how his cute little chunky face would greet me in the morning. Now he is a big boy. Congratulations Tyler!! Here is to a great year!! I love you!!

My latest creation ...

This is my latest creation. I absolutely fell in love with the fabric and thought it would be a great compliment on Kate's skin tone. I have the same fabric but opposite background colors that I am going to make for Addison. I'll post pics as soon as I can.

We had an absolutely FANTASTIC Day today in San Simeon. We decided to beat the Bakersfield heat and head to the coast. We were welcomed by 65 degree weather and sunshine. It was a perfect day!!

broken bone ...

so katiebugg was running down the hallway tonight and tripped or fell (not quite sure) since i was in the bathroom. we headed to emergency after a long battle with her dad that the foot was in fact "not broken". went with the motherly instinct and took her anyway. turned out it WAS broken and i was in fact correct!! sheesh men!!!

ps - her only complaint about the whole ordeal was that her cast was NOT PINK!!

4th of July ...

4th of July was SPECTACULAR!! How couldn't it be with great food, family and friends. The weather was HOT so a nice dip in the pool was great. Along with yummy Sangria and to die for sliders. OOHHHH I wish the day had never ended!! (ps - below is Derek's yummy cake that, by the way, had 2lbs of butter in the entire thing!)
