{A must have at our house...}

I can't wait until this cookbook is released......If any of you aren't familiar with the Pioneer Woman and her amazing recipes, you are missing out. She has recipes from Pot Rost, to sushi, to pasta, to chocolate. She is finally making a cookbook and I am so excited! Here is a link to her blog to try some of the recipes out if you'd like. I recommend the chocolate sheet cake and the Enchiladas. Sooo good!

{Kamrin's MP3 player case}

Kamrin got an MP3 player from my brother who didn't need it anymore. We were cleaning up the family room a few days later and I asked her to put this camo cooler of Josh's away. She said that it wasn't a was her MP3 player case. I think she has plenty of room in there for her MP3 player, what do you think?

{Octoberfest Cheer Performance}

Kelsie got to perform at Octoberfest this year. She's getting pretty good at the cheerleading stuff. The second vidoe is all cheerleading jumps. She got picked because she has worked so hard at the jumps and got to be obe of the girls to demonstrate for everyone.

{Kamrin's Birthday}

Kamrin turns five tomorrow, but I have a class so we celebrated today. She got cute new cowgirl boots, a jewelry box, some new clothes, and a cute new barbie doll. Her cake was super yummy. We used brownies with raspberry mousse inbetween the layers. Then, we frosted it with buttercream frosting and added fondant polka dots and a cute bow. It tasted super yummy!!

This is what we woke up to today....SNOW!! It's only the first part of October and it's snowing already. I'm not going to complain though...I really like the snow. The girls couldn't resist at least spending a few minutes out there in it.

They chose to make a snow horse instead of a snowman and even went and got their saddle to ride the snow horse with! They are so smart aren't they??


{Kyler's Birthday!}

We've made a little tradition around here. I really like to make the kids' birthday cakes. So, this year Kyler got a tractor. He really likes just about anything with wheels and tractors are no exception.

Eating the cake....notice the black wheels. That part of the cake was rather messy!

Opening presents.....he learned how to say that word pretty quickly. That and birthday. He woke up the next saying birthday and presents.
Blowing out the candles. He didn't really get that part. Oh well, we'll save that one for next year.


{Lake Cleveland}

The kids an I went for a drive with some freinds on labor day. We drove about an hour and a half away to Lake Cleveland. It was nice and the kids had a really fun day.

The girls made homeade fishing poles.

And Kyler threw rocks for the whole day!

What a nice, relaxing day!

{The Turtle}

The other day while mowing the lawn Josh found this:

The girls were so exxcited to find it. They were just sure that they were keeping it as their new pet. Unfortunately, it really belongs in the neighbors pond. Now, the girls are so sad. At least they can visit it in the pond.
