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...

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...

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.
