FIrst dance!

 Not quite what I pictured her looking like for her first dance.....: )
School had a Halloween dance and Adrienne was a nerd. She had fun making up her outfit and since she can't trick or treat this year because she is just getting too old for it I didn't want to spend a lot. We did this with only the cost of the glasses....which ended up being more than each of the other kids costumes. Funny how that turns out huh. But she can dress up again to hand out candy. She had a blast at the dance and even danced!!!

Making dough

 So I normally don't grab my camera for the mundane moments in life but since kids are in school and the rest of the evening is filled with homework, dinner, baths, playing outside, church activities, Bible studies ect pictures are becoming rare. So while we were making pizza dough for dinner I grabbed the camera and took a few shots.
 The kids love helping to make anything. And I love the help with bread products because I can say how many scoops and they will just to that much till I check and tell them how much more to add. I add everything but the flour and they do the rest.  You can't mess dough up too bad and I like the help!
They will be pros in no time!

I know this is blurry, it was taken in a rush on my phone, the next second Lane has moved to get out of the camera shot. But they had cut and made this book and then Rylin laid next to him while he read it to her. I love how sweet these two are with each other!

Lane Birthday with Friends!

 Ok so I am the worlds worst blogger beings his Birthday was the beginning of September and now the end of October I am blogging it but better late than never right? Tell life to SLOW down!
 I had the help of my wonderful daughter Adrienne in getting ready for the party. I picked veggies at my parents till late the night before and then got up at 5:30am to work farmers market to then come home and have people showing up 45 minutes after I walked in the door. All the decor was her idea and a surprise to me!
 The sign on the front door.
 The table with color sheets and goody bags all ready to go. She also wrapped the gifts for me!
 First things first after playing for awhile Lane was ready for gifts!

 He loves all things cars!

 His partner in crime by his side always!
 Adrienne and Rylin coloring their sheets.
 The flowers Adrienne planted at Grandma and Grandpas that made a beautiful center piece!
 We did take and bake pizza for everyone to eat! Easy with my schedule and a hit!
 Time for cake, a racing cake of course!
 I think I should be worried Adrienne is all about lighting candles!
He made a wish and blew out the candles! It was a great party and he has so much fun!

The little mishap

 So I was in the kitchen making dinner and Rylin was at the table with Adrienne coloring and she starts crying. I go to her and see this. I try carefully to get the crayon off but am having no luck. I call Joe who is was 3 miles away farming for a friend. I needed something to get her mind off of her pinched lip so pulled out my camera and started snapping away. Luckily she is a ham for the camera and Dad was home in no time and she was even smiling by the end of our photo shoot!

 And the after, she had a sore on her lip for a good week. We reported it and she has gotten two packages of goodies from Crayola which is nice. But I don't think she will ever put a twistable in her mouth again after that!

Made by Adrienne

 Adrienne took an old cereal box and made this fun toy for Lane. She also is the one who took all the pictures. : )

 Note the "oil" spill she made this very detailed and had lots of fun doing it! Lane has enjoyed playing with it as well. : )

sleeping babes

So the other day I walk into the living room to find this

  So sweet!

And this is totally not related to this post but had to share it. So a couple weeks ago Lane drew this picture at school
And I looked at it and thought it was cute, told him so and hung it on the china hutch. It hung there awhile and Joe was looking at it one evening and was like why is Sam drinking out of a toilet?

I had not even noticed this before but he totally is! lol
