Latest read

This was a cute fun book, I enjoyed it. I think I liked it even more just because of the color of the book. If anyone has any suggestions to a good book, I would love to hear from you.

Leaves Leaves go away, come back another day

The boys were grounded from the T.V. today for playing in the morning instead of getting ready for school. (They won't like it that I said that, ha) So I decided we better tackle the front yard and rake up all the leaves. We all made an estimate at how many bags it would take. CJ was the closest with six. I said 5, Cade said 3, Macey and Mason said 4. EIGHT bags later and three bags from 3 weeks before. Yeah the kids fell asleep early that night. They were troopers and stuck with it and did a good job and poor Maddie has a belly full of leaves. She sat in the grass and tried to put anything and everything in her mouth. She loved being outside and crawling around.

Happy Birthday Macey!!!

Macey turned 5 on the 4th. I can't believe how big my kids are getting. We moved to Georgia when she was only 9 months old. Now look at her, sniff sniff. We had a gentleman at church pull Chris and I aside and said he was watching us during sacrament and knew that we had our hands full, but wanted to tell us to enjoy every moment of it because before you know it they are grown up and gone. He began to get really choked up and went on to say now he has great grandchildren and still can't believe it. My little girl is now my big helper. Every day without fail or even a prod, she will get Maddie from all her naps. She pulls down the side crib, picks up Maddie K out of the crib and carries her down the stairs. Sounds scary I know, but she absolutely loves doing it, in fact she gets very upset if somebody else tries to. She loves to make her daddy laugh. She LOVES gum. If anyone has gum she sniffs it out and has no fear asking if she can have some. She loves purses and has plenty of them, but if you look inside, it will be filled with cars, guns and action figures. Can you tell she has older brothers? And of course she loves her little sister Maddie and is her second mom.

She can be quite the ham. Love you Macey.

Homemade apple pie!

The last couple times Chris went to the grocery store for me, he would come home with a big bag of Granny smith apples. He likes them but the kids don't really; to sour. I had to think of something to do with all these apples. I decided I would try and make a real homemade apple pie. I made one once when I was a little girl at my friend Keely's house, with the help of her mom of course. If you know me you know how I love sugar, so to make it even sweeter, I did a crumb top of a little flour and lots of sugar.

Turns out that it didn't appeal to the kids and Chris doesn't really care for sweets so CJ had one little piece and I ate the rest of it all by myself. I had it for breakfast, lunch and after dinner one day. Ha how's that for eating healthy.

Pictures of Maddie K

I wanted to get some pictures of her in this dress before she grew out of it. Doesn't she look so cute. I just love her so much, she brings an instant smile to my face.
