Cigar Anyone??

I posted this on FB, but I know some of you don't have an account, and I wouldn't want anyone to miss this picture. Obviously, she had been in my bathroom with no adult supervision!! LOL

Roxy and Channing enjoying an afternoon snack!

Channing is infatuated with animals. All animals! She thinks she can go right up to them and "give them love", even if they do not reciprocate! Our dogs are no different. They have always been tolerant of kids, but do not like to be bothered...unless you come bearing food! Cute, cute, cute!!!


For Jerry and Shirley

Jerry and Shirley go to San Fransisco each year to visit their son, and they always bring us something back. This year they got the girls matching Kimonos and me a kimono dress. They are gorgeous!


Bounce Barn

If you haven't been to the Bounce Barn, you should go. It is as much fun for adults as it is for the kids! Mike and I had a blast taking Channing down the big slides. It is much easier going down than it is going up, but a great workout! We went for Hannah's birthday party and, of course, Arden has already hit me up for her birthday in September. We will just have to see...


No words...

On Sunday afternoons, we come home from church, change clothes and usually just relax. We nap, watch TV, play outside and usually I work on homework. This Sunday was no different. We got home and I told Arden to go change her clothes and hang up her dress. She skipped off to her bedroom without an argument...shocker, and came back out a few minutes later with her play clothes on. I never questioned whether or not she hung up the dress, because I just assumed she did. That night I went into her room and found the dress laying neatly on the bed with this note on top. You see, her dresses are on the top rack of her closet, so she cannot get to them without help. And I looked on the bottom rack, and did not find an empty hanger...not one.
I thought this was absolutely the sweetest thing I had ever seen. She is such a sweet girl and I love her so!!

Tonight was our last official game of the season! Wooo Hooo! Each child got a trophy and was recognized individually. But this year has been extra special for us because it is Arden's 4th year to play and her last year of T-ball. Next year it is on to coach pitch. She has always been a good player, but this year she really gave it her all. When she got up to bat, she always delivered...usually a home run and sometimes a grand slam. She loves ball and plays with all her heart and that is why she was voted MVP by her team members! She had no idea that she had gotten it and was tickled to death when they called her name! We are so proud of her and hope that she continues to love the game! Congrats baby girl!
