ClubHouse Mini Freebie KitCreated by Andrea
So today I was downloading some digi scrap stuff and came across this kit from Andrea off, so this took me all of 10 min to throw together. I have hated scrap booking but this digital stuff is easy! :) Mostly ;) ( So I though about not showing off this page because I just had had a baby but just pretend I don't look like I just had a baby!)

A little fun

It seems I haven't had one moment since school started to have any summer fun. So I noticed these pics from Rigby lake, Trista & I went there with our neighbors the Erickson's the day before school started. So I though I would practice my newly forming digital skills on them. Not great but I am a work in progress:) Since school started I did freezer jam & corn, not to mention that I have had 5 children in my house the last week. And needless to say I now have 5 min. to my self, Yes! I am looking forward to the long weekend.

Yesterday was Maycees 1st day of real school. She was soo excited it is so cute to watch them grow. Her & her friend Lizzy skipped into the school with out a care in the world. I think I was the only one stressing :). Her fav. thing about school is riding the bus you know she is a BIG Deal now!! The only bad thing is it make me feel OLD!

So Today was Bostins 1st day of pre-school. He Loves his school & his teacher Mrs. Doggett (or mrs. doggy as he calls her)she is Great!!

I Hate to toot my own horn!!

But.... TOOT TOOT. Man do I have a green thumb or what!;)

1st fruits of my labors
So today I finished weeding my garden & was feeling especially proud of my garden. I planted it really late in the summer,but it is still doing well. It is my 1st attempt at gardening. I planted tomatoes, pumpkins, yellow crick neck squash, acorn squash, zukini, cucumbers, hot pepper (4 kinds), onions, snow peas, swiz char, carrots, beats, oregano, basil, thyme, & mint. If any one wants any it will all be ready starting next week :) I am really proud of my garden ( you know Brett told me I couldn't so of course I did) **sorry if I spelled any thing wrong or called it by the wrong name***

Ripken Bodie 10 Mon.

Where has the time gone, it makes me sad to think he will be one soon.. weird

Love the sad face, all pics cant be of them happy

Owww brotherly love!
Ripken loves Maycee & Bostin so much. The min. I get him out of bed he is pushing past me and wants to see the kids. He laughs so cute at them. Even when Bostin is being what I think is too rough he just laughs. He has gotten to the point where he throws fits if they take a toy but the kids are learning to make good trades :) Rip still doesn't do what is called a "traditional crawl" but get places all the same. He loves to stand up to things and pulled him self up to standing for the first time today at the O'Donnells home. He can sit up from laying and chats all the time. His favorite words are ough ow, Gog (dog), na na na na with the head shake(no)( he hears that often)ahhh chew (with the head jerk when you sneeze). He makes our house happy, and all those around him happy. We love him and just want him to stay little, is that allot to ask;) I think not!!
