little artists

maiko said "this is a man riding a zebra" notice the contrasting stripes
and layla is drawing a family portrait, she said i am the really big one. it's funny... she is always drawing family pictures lately and i'm always really big and she usually forgets to draw herself... matt says she just makes me really big because i'm so important... awww! thanks matt :)

papa's pumpkin patch


the picture below is probably the best one i got of the three kids together...
most of the ones i got look like this...
in this one i told maiko to smile like he wanted a cookie... guess i got what i asked for...
good one of the girls...
decided to throw gramma in the mix...
and it's a family shot :)...
it's amazing i took so many of these group shots and so many of them have somebody making a funny face....
these two of gramma and the kids are very special...

think you might recognize the following two pictures...

it was a good day, i have some great calendar pictures now :) also, this about wraps up our long weekend and now i have even more things to post about... hope you enjoy the photos!

baking cookies with gramma patti

and julie, notice how your in the background of every picture playing with baby eislee :)
i love the first picture, how all three kids are perfectly lined up! that was not planned, just happened :)

starting our busy weekend was...

disney on ice!!! i took this picture during the lion king part of the show...
maiko and layla shoveling cotton candy int0 their mouths...

and this one was takin during the tinkerbell part, that is tinkerbell in the middle doing a trick...

it was a lot of fun! my mom always gets reduced tickets for cool stuff like this through her work! i had never seen ice skating in person before and i think this was the most entertaining way to do it... costumes, and disney music haha! it was a pretty cool show. i guess at some point layla told my sister that "this was the best show ever!" :) cute! another fun thing is how many of us were able to go! there was me and my kids, my mom (nana), my sisters amber and brittany, and even my brother jason! and jason drove his giant expedition so that we were all able to carpool together. after the show we went out to dinner and met up with my aunt kia and uncle scott (my mom's brother), that was also really nice because i hadn't seen them in quite a while. and me and the kids went back and stayed the night at grandma patti's house! whew! and that was just saturday! many thanks to nana for such an awesome time, and jason for driving us all... we had a blast! i'm definitely glad to be home and back to a somewhat normal sleep schedule though :)

more eislee...

she will be three months in less than a week...
and still such a sweet, sweet baby... we all enjoy her so much...
oh don't cry...
daddy to the rescue... that mean mommy... i cry and she just keeps taking pictures, how cruel!

thanks auntie rebecca!

the girls love their new dresses...
i love how these pictures seem to capture layla's inner fire...
everyone loves a girl with the ability to laugh at herself...
is this sweet or what? i can't believe how fast she's changing... you'd think i'd be used to it by now, but no...

looks cute with that purple diaper!

fall festival at layla's school

i love the look of all the octopus legs sticking out of her car seat :)
i forgot my camera in the car so all the pictures i got are in the car...

laylas teachers husband painted this airplane on maikos face...
they were pretty tired when we got home... isn't this octopus costume so cute? we borrowed it from a kid at school. the festival was a blast, i think i volunteered to do a little to much though :) next time i'm gonna take it easy and just do a booth or something :)

here comes trouble

some photos of maiko's hunting trip...




that's the cabin they built behind him...

three cheers for matt

yay! yay! yay! thanks to matt i'm back! he has my computer working again, it's not completely fixed but he's working on it on and off all the time and i can use it again! i was so worried about my pictures... all of eislee's newborn pictures were on my computer (not backed up anywhere of course!) and i was so afraid of losing them but they're fine and i learned my lesson! i went through and backed up everything, pictures, music, videos everything on the external hard drive and i will continue to do so regularly :) the nice part about backing it all up is i was able to remove a bunch of stuff i'm not using and free up tons of space for more pictures :) the picture to the left is one that wasn't backed up, the last picture of the summer, so enjoy!

apple pickers








apple time... they are so grown up! i can't believe they can go out and pick they're own apples! i'm so excited for apple sauce bubbling on the stove... that is my absolute favorite smell... mmmm! hopefully this year we can get around to making some hard apple cider too!
