Eden's first cooked Marshmellow...

She's not really sure about being sticky :)

Adam is very proud of his fire

Getting leaves from the tree to keep the fire going

Eden getting the sticky off

Krimson is very proud that she got up on the tire swing all by herself!

Jude was more interested in shooting people with the water gun than the s'mores

Krimson with her horse she has named "Princess"

It seems like all our pictures lately are in our swimming suits, but that is the only way to stay cool when the heat index is 110!! I'll have to say that the pool isn't really working any more though...it felt like a hot tub! We had fun thought and when we got out of the water that actually cooled us off more than being in the water. The kids had fun playing with Jett & Owen they are cute boys! We swam for 3 hours and all of the kids were asleep by the time we got home...successful afternoon!

First Hair Cut

Krimson is now 3 years and 2 months old and she has just received her first hair cut. Scissors have never touched her hair until 2 days ago. I just wanted to even it out. She did great and even asked me to color her hair purple and pink, maybe next time! From the looks of the picture it looks like she wanted a mustache too, but it's just a shot of her cut off hair that we are going to put in her baby book.

The boys had their baseball party saturday at Excalibur! They got their trophies and team pictures. It was fun to play with their teammates. It was a great end to a very fun first season of baseball. It's about time to sign up for soccer again...I can't believe it!

Adam & Jude have always enjoyed spiking their hair after a shower, but I've never had any gel to make it stay. Well, finally, after Adam's constant reminding I got some hair "Glue". The boys are loving it...so am I! They are also at VBS this week and they are watching God Rocks! They love to say, "spiking" and all of their hair is spiked, so they are loving looking like God Rocks. Tomorrow night we are going to the concert...I think they'll want to go with spiked hair!

Cooling Off

Krimson sharing her ice cream with Eden. If Krimson wasn't fast enough Eden's scream would reminder her!

The kids after getting sprayed by yours truly on the trampoline! One of our fun backyard activities!

Eden looking at Krimson as she was laughing at her, and laughing!

The girls in their matching dresses and thinking they are pretty cute...and they are!

Relaxing with Grandma and Big Daddy after a long days work.

Thank You Big Daddy

Dad brought lots of tool to get the job done!

Big Daddy's right hand man!

Doing a little dance after painting the bunk beds and herself!

Jude worked really hard on painting and did a great job!

Mom was a painting machine!

One thing we have really struggled with in this house is storage. Well, with mom's vision and dad's handy work they created this huge storage place. Marc and my room had wasted space behind the door, so this is how it looks now!

Sheets! That's right. Mom thought of sheets to use for curtains. It looks great and was so much cheaper than anything else. Dad bought the rod at Lowes.

Dad put in a book shelf above our doors to give us more walking space in our room.

We finally put curtains over our window and bathroom door. You can see the end of the book shelf here too.

We put both sets of bunk beds in one room and moved all the toys to one room. Now the bed room's are a place of peace and relaxation. I've got to get curtains, but for now a Cat in the Hat blanket is keeping the light out. Krimson is so proud and has loved sharing a room with the boys. We have a queen size quilt on her bed right now till we find a twin set. There's not rush till Eden moves in to this room. Grandma found these bunk beds for us too!

Our other swing set was breaking down so dad and Marc put a new one together! It was hot the afternoon they put it up, but they powered through and it looks awesome! Thanks for everything mom and dad! It's nice to have less chaos in the house from all the clutter!

Grandma & Big Daddy getting in on the action!

I got sprayed with whip cream right after this picture was taken. Thanks Grandma.

Marcie asked and she has received. Grandma & Big Daddy wanted in on the face splatting action too. To bad the kids were sleeping. We'll have to show them the pictures too! This was for your enjoyment Marcie Lisa!

Round 2/Eden's Birthday

Maia, Alli Kate, Adam, Josiah, & Jude waiting for the party to begin!

Here is what Krimson was doing during the party...no nap today, can you tell?

Another cake?

Oh yeah, it's good!
The next pictures are the older kids getting to pretend they are 1 again. Adam had been talking about "splatting" his face in a cake again and I thought why not a finally? This is the last one year old party our family will have, so why not go out with a bang...or splat? The Joneshills were here and got to enjoy the cake eating as well. I think it went over pretty good. Eden was probably the cleanest. She got more into it on her birthday.
