Back to School

We ended our summer with a Back to School Dinner with the whole family. It was so much fun. Each "student" got to pick their favorite dish. With 7 kids going back to school we had quite a bit of food. Posted by PicasaWe ended the evening with a fashion show (which by the way was the kids favorite part of the evening) with the kids modeling their "first day" outfits, and grandma even had balloons for each student, their school colors of course. Thanks Tiffany for the great idea!

i LOVE how you love to read the same books over and over and over.

i LOVE to watch you play.

Happy 11th Jessica Kate!

Happy Birthday Jess! I am a little sad she is not here on her birthday, but I know she is having a ball in Lake Powell with her grandparents and cousins. Jess is the most caring, thoughtful, easy going, loving daughter I could ever ask for. She is just the best! I tried to think of 5 things she enjoys the most at this point in her life, we will see how close I come.

1. wakeboarding (we never thought her skinny arms would ever pull her up, well they did and she is amazing now)

2. a hamburger with mustard and pickles only and fries

3. shopping

4. Camp Rock

5. Taylor Swift

This is what Jess will be coming home to find, she is going to look so cute on this thing zipping around to all of her babysitting jobs! Wish I had one of these when I was 11, instead I had a bike I had to pedal! Happy Birthday Sweetie-we love you!!!

I LOVE these colors!!

I would love to redo Jess's bedroom just like this! She is wanting a more "grown up" room. I am loving the apple green, black and splash of pink! Don't think I can do it right now, but I am thinking a bathroom would be pretty cute done in these 2 colors and cost quite a bit less. Fall is right around the corner and a project is calling my name!
