Kids Birthday Pictures (FINALLY)

Well I finally got to taking the kids birthday pictures. Better late then never… Kolby is already 2 3/4yr and I’m just now getting to his 2 year pictures. They turned out really well so I’m happy even though I wish I would have done them sooner. Bryant has lost 2 teeth since his birthday so that has changed his looks. Anyway here are the pictures!

Douthat State Park Camping Trip

October 23-26

We have been wanting to go camping for a while so decided to go camping in honor of Chester’s birthday. We decided to wait until after Apple Butter to go. I figured that the campgrounds would have lots of availability with it not being summer any longer and school being in session. Well not so! I forgot it was peak fall foliage time! We didn’t want to travel too Read more...

October 2014

4th-We have been planning on having a yard sale all year long but when it came down to it we weren’t as prepared as we were hoping to be. I crammed this week and got a bunch of stuff out and priced for the sale. I was able to make some muffins and cookies last night for the kids to sell. They believe their part of a yard sale is to sell muffins and cookies that I have made and keep all Read more...

September 2014

The last day of September camp started our September out. (see August’s post for camp’s post) We actually made it home before dinner time and were able to clean out the motorhome, finish entering my consignment stuff, and go to bed at a decent hour.

August 2014

Well August has been about as busy as we could possibly make it. Wow! I feel like my tongue is hanging out trying to keep up.

We started school on August 4, after a busy weekend going to DC for Brick Fair. Cooper finished up his extra work over the summer so got to skip 4th grade and go into 5th grade. He is starting a new curriculum this year. We switched him to Alpha Omega’s Read more...

Cooper’s 9th Birthday Party

Today we celebrated Cooper’s 9th birthday! Our plan was to have a swim party at David and Janelle’s and then bring all the boys home with us for the night. Well when we got up Chester didn’t feel good. He wasn’t sure if he was getting sick or not. We decided I would go ahead and do Cooper’s party at David and Janelle’s but just not bring the boys home. I Read more...

Kaylin’s Birthday Tea Party

I got up and got hustling this morning. I decorated a tea pot cake for Kaylin. Then I cleaned up the house and made snackies for lunch. Cooper & Bryant got to go down to Laura’s and play Lego for the day so they didn’t have to be at a girls tea party. ┬áLorianne & her kiddos came as well as Tara Martin, Gwyneth Cox, & Laura. Kaylin didn’t think I knew how to make Read more...

Brick Fair

We started out the busyness of August with Brick Fair at the Dulles Expo Center on the 2nd. It was Men & Boy’s campout weekend but there weren’t any going with boys our boys ages so we decided to go to Brick Fair since Laura has been wanting to take the boys for the last few years. We figured eventually the boys will outgrow Lego so we’d better take them while they enjoy Read more...

July 2014

We started July with Kaylin going to Gwenyth’s birthday swim party. The party was at the Corle’s pool. I took Kaylin & Kolby with me. It is amazing the kids aren’t raisins now. They stayed in the pool for hours. It was a perfect day for swimming as it was 90* I believe. The party started at 11:00 and we stayed until 4:00. Abby had prepared a snacky lunch so we took a Read more...

June 2014

To get things started this month, I have picture of a bunch of the freebies I’ve gotten while learning to coupon. I was able to set it all out and have a lady come pick out what she thought the Nelsons could use for Special Hope Network in Africa. I was thrilled for the stuff to go to someone that could use it and they were thrilled to have some stuff to give to the people they Read more...
