Glendale Corn Maze

Sedona did amazingly well with all the scary props. It was an unseasonably HOT day and the twins were getting tired fast, so we put them into the backpack carriers and continued on our adventure.









We let Logan lead us out of the maze. We were so glad he got us out before it got dark as that's when it becomes a haunted maze. Ooh, ahh...

My critters

They looked so cute, like two little people out on a date.
The three amigos in the front yard in their jammies.




I noticed this beautiful praying mantis in the backyard while the kids were playing. I was sitting right under it (not for long once I spotted him). I got a little freaked out after having had a spider fall on my forehead while looking up on another occasion, lucky for me it wasn't my mouth! eew...

McCain/Palin

This year it's been really tough researching the issues. It seems every time I go online my little ones need mommy. At least I've opened my mind and listened to BOTH sides. It's so disheartening to hear all of the slamming and bashing going on, such a negative energy it sends to our beautiful universe. Pretty soon that part will be over and the next scene will unfold.
That being said, I'm hoping for a McCain/Palin victory. It's been a tough decision for me to make especially after Colin Powell's endorsement of Mr. Obama. My mind is now made up after listening to a combination of the mainstream media and Laura Ingram and other talk radio folks, I'm comfortable with my choice.
Now just pray, meditate, pray for whomever is elected into office.

Fashion Queen

She's already playing dress up. It's hysterical watching these two clunk around in my hi-heels.
Can you imagine being womb-mates for 34 weeks in the belly, very special connection going on there. Here they are sharing a tender moment smiles, hugs...It's all good.

Ksaynia's Two!

There's the birthday girl!

Keela's is my extremely artistic mommy-friend. Last year we plastered the children's hands. This year the kids got to fingerpaint an 8x10 canvas. They all had a great time and some even decided to paint themselves(face/body), it was great!



Mmm..."Layers"-Strawberries & Cream cake, my favorite!

Tony's eldest daughter knocked the unicorn pinata's head OFF! Logan got in a couple good whacks just before that too. Of course the candy falling out was such a thrill to all these little junkies...

Goodstuff





Sunset Park

I've been wanting to take the kids to the park to feed the ducks for quite some time now as that was one of my favorite things as a young girl. The kids really had a great time. We also saw numerous fish (not sure what they were - they were small) and plenty of ducks. There was a covey of about 25 or so quail running around, it was a good outing. It was about 95 degrees today so we didn't stay too long. The kids collected feathers so they could make a pillow...cute.
Sedona thought the (stale) popcorn was quite tasty.
Here ducky ducky...
Ooh cold and stinky...

Fishing Trip





I just found these on Harry's camera and had to post, I don't believe I have any decent pictures of the Amberjacks. I thought these were great! E

We're Two! August 23

We had chocolate cupcakes for Spencer & Sedona's 2nd birthday!
They knew exactly what to do after the birthday song!
Opening presents was alot of fun!

It was a great weekend. We all went on the boat in Navajo Lake, babies and Logan all cooled off in the water (no pictures). I love staying in this cabin!

Almost Two...

Three days before their 2nd birthday, Sedona took a header on our tile floor! Bam, just like that and her tooth was chipped! She fussed a little but we had no idea that part of her pearly white was missing until we were at dinner. What a trooper.

Date Night

Larry and I started our monthly date night with a yummy sushi dinner (we were gorged), after that we went to the liquor store and got a cocktail which we shared, in the desert, by the light of the moon. Very relaxing...

Three Amigos



Spencer's Sleeping Positions



This kid is non-stop! I yearn for the day he will sleep in past 6am and decide that naps are alright! When he's tired, the little guy crashes hard. Sometimes, all I can do to get him to sleep is drive around town, burning up fuel for a few moments of much needed peace.

Henderson Fire Deptartment Field Trip





On September 9, we had an awesome visit to the Fire Dept. The men were very gracious and informative during the tour. We learned about what it was like living in the firehouse - 24 hour shifts/working out at 24 Hour Fitness, grocery shopping, sleeping in small spaces (sounds a little like Larry's Navy days), the clothing (hot and heavy) worn by firemen, do's and dont's if you're ever in a fire (don't be afraid of the fireman - he's there to help) and of course the best part...being "inside" the firetruck and paramedic truck. It was a good day. After that I brought Logan to the park to play with the other kids and talk to some of the other moms.

Artwork and Storytime






The kids love to finger paint, and what kid doesn't? Our goal is to do different projects each month August was sidewalk chalk and painting. I think this month will be bugs and bones. The other day Logan found a dead cockroach on our way into the gym, naturally, he picked it up and brought it in to show the caretakers...they were not amused as he tossed it on the counter for all to admire...oh well.
