Celebrating me turning 34 at the Hey Day Cafe with Ali and Leah

He still lets me rock him to sleep

And if I just look at his bear cub feet, he still looks like a little boy

Activity Days fashion show

Riding the Burke's Junction Train

I get to take regular trips to Sportsman's Warehouse to buy this kid fishing supplies. He is obsessed with tying flies.

Charlie watched Winnie the Pooh this morning and he spotted my honey jar and wanted to eat some just like Pooh Bear

My sweet friend Jackie knows how much I love Williams-Sonoma and bought me this mix. She is the most thoughtful.

Getting settled for a nap. Don't mind my no-makeup face.

And...a few minutes later, he's out.

Baptisms for the Dead with some awesome women

It was super awesome when one of our new windows started leaking in the middle of a big storm. Poor Brandon spent a lot of time working on it and fixing it.

We took a trip to Arnold to stay at our family friend's cabin. So, so cozy there.

Out to lunch with my babies. My heart is so full when I look at all of them. 

Our thankful tree

Thanksgiving at Aunt Brooke's

The tree lighting ceremony in Placerville, one of my favorite events of the year. It was fun this year because these two girls are sisters, my YW, one is Miss El Dorado County and the other is Miss Teen El Dorado County.

Our tradition of cutting down the Christmas Tree at Apple Hill on the day after Thanksgiving. I loved our tree this year.

Here is Lucy next to the tree she wanted SO badly. She was heartbroken when I told her it was too big, so she settled on taking a picture to remember it. She is still crying in the picture.

Sitting in the mud

Brady boy being a good helper, refilling the wood pellets and starting fires on the regular.

Charlie Turns 3

Thursday, October 1, 2015

My Baby Bubba turned 3. Oh how I adore this boy. He is stubborn and sweet and snuggly and squishy and angry and excitable. Dad arranged for him to have this super cool Buzz Lightyear cake for his birthday party.

Stop growing so fast Charlie boy!

October Odds & Ends

Pony Rides at Apple Hill

Crashing Sister's Room

Brandon trying out Charlie's Hulk hands he got for his birthday (smart present? I don't think so)

Such a cute little girl! Fun at the Halloween store.

Lucy and Abby got to go to their annual trip to Disney on Ice with Grandma Fox, lucky girls!

Tweede Dee and Tweedle Dumb, I love these crazy boys!


My favorite holiday!

Our costume: Ron Burgundy, Veronica Corningstone, and Baxter (as himself)

Brandon found that brown suit at Goodwill, and his hair wasn't perfect, but it was close enough. We wish we could have managed some headgear for Baxter, but I don't think he would have appreciated that.

We threw our Halloween Party at our house with Donut on a String, soups, and fun times with friends.

We had so much fun with the kids. Brady was too cool to dress up this year. I convinced Lucy to dress up as Lucille Ball in I Love Lucy. She was a little reluctant, but boy oh boy was it a HUGE hit everywhere she went. People were taking pictures with her, she looked seriously adorable.

Her poor hairdo had seen better days at our Trunk or Treat

I helped in Clark's class on Halloween

And peeked in on Brady at his class (he's in the back in the grey sweatshirt)
