Come fly with me

Slayton is going to grow up to be my engineer. He just lives for figuring things out and making them better. He loves anything that 'works'. His uncle gave him just a simple styrofoam plane and it kept him busy for so long. First, he was content to just fly it...but soon he was experimenting. He would turn the wings around, or make the tail a different angle, just to see what would happen. I hope Slayton keeps his inquisitive nature. I think it will take him far.

This kit is called 'No Girls Allowed'.

One of our family traditions is to use the hot coals from our little charcoal grill to make smores. The kids look forward to it every time we cook out. It's going to be a long winter with no smores! It's funny, I've noticed everyone in the family toasts their marshmallows differently...I like them just barely toasted, Slayton likes it pretty brown, and Daddy makes his as black as midnight! Kira likes her smores unassembled! LOL!

This is a cute little kit from MandaBean called Miss Patterson. I bought it over at Sweet Shoppe.

I believe...

I just love this page. That is really it. I just love it! :) I love how Ali Edwards writes on her photos and I wanted to try that style. I thought this picture was perfect since Kira was off center and I had all that great dark 'empty' space to write in. I think it worked out perfectly.

This is a kit from Jessica Sprague called Flower Girl. It is just adorable...the colors are so sweet. The font is my ever favorite from Ali Edwards.

9? Is it really possible?!

My baby is going to be 9 years old soon. I just can not believe it! He is like this little adult living with us! He even gets some of the 'grown-up' jokes! Ack!

I took this picture while we were playing at the park a few weeks ago. When I went back and looked at the photos, I was just in awe of how grown up he is. In so many ways I am not ready for this, but in many...I certainly am!

This digital kit is from Sweet Shoppe and is called Nana's Cupboard.

Riley at the pool

This is just a quick little page about how much Riley loves the pool and swimming. I want to be sure to document all the things the kids love to do. I wish I had my childhood memories written down now that I am older and I want to be sure to do that for my kids. I hope they appreciate it when they are older.

This digi kit is called Celebrate Life, but I am not sure where I bought it from...
