So we made an old family recipe (Butter Cookies) a few days ago. It is from J's side of the family and it came from his great great grandpa who owned the Arapaho Bakery in Salt Lake City. Yeah, so the boys and I sat down to roll and cut the cookies out. Then Jer decided to join in the fun. This is what we get. Can you tell what it is? I think great great grandpa would be proud! Ok, so if you couldn't tell what he created... an egg and baccon. the little thing at the top is Avery's idea of scrambled eggs!

This was the train ride, I absolutely think this is the cutest picture of Nana and Ave!
Of course we had to get a pumpkin for each of the kids. I told Ave he could get any pumpkin he wanted but he had to be able to put it into the barrel. So he got this huge one in, and then like 5 minutes later he changed his mind, so i helped to get it out and he picked a different one, (about the same size) but because he put the first one in and he was SOOOOOOOOOOO tired, I helped with the second one.
This is Bo's selection, a little bit more modest in his selection!
What a fun day we had and I am so glad Nana got to come with us and share in the fun!

So I was talking to Avery tonight and I was telling him that we have a big day tomorrow and he needed to head off to bed. He asked why and I said that I needed to support Daddy in the Labor and Industries battle we are fighting tomorrow and it was important that I be there.and he asked how I supported Daddy which i explained and he said. "Oh a battle, like you fight in" "I'm gonna ask Pa J to help me make a light saber and a lazer gun and I'll go attack them with my friends!" talk about support eh!

So because I was running the party I didn't get hardly any pictures but the grandma's got more so I'll post those when i get them but of the photos i got : This is one of the two cakes, yes i said two cakes. Ave couldn't decide on which one he'd rather have so i did both (to make up for him not really having a party last year) this is R2-D2
And this is the 2nd cake i just did a round one with happy birthday written on top then he wanted to put the action figures on the cake like they were fighting because the way i had them "wasn't very good" lol then he stuck all their guns around the cake. I'm glad he got into it and when he told his friends that he put them on top they all thought that was cool!

So we went golfing on my birthday and Jer got stuck in the trees! Every time he tried to get out he hit another tree. 3rd time was a charm though! I think this was the most enjoyable part (for me anyway)! Shade and a good chuckle, though I had my fair share of mishaps and bad swings, they just didn't get caught on video!

July is almost over and there may be those that are wondering what happened to our forgotten blog, well we've been busy both with fun and not so fun activities the last couple months. We wont bore you with the not so fun things and just show you the fun ones.
At the end of the school year they had a farm day (remember this is a farm school), and the dad and grandpa of one of the boys brought some huge farm equipment for the kids to climb up in and play on. This is Ave all decked out in his boots and hat.
We enjoyed 7 weeks of baseball which Ave just loved. Catcher was his favorite position to play. I was just amazed at all the kids on his team. They could all hit so well and their throwing wasn't too bad either.
Last week Disney had a train in town to advertise for a movie "A Christmas Carol." On the train they showed how the movie was made and at the end you could morph your face into one of the characters faces (so neat). The boys loved it. Then they were showing a 15 minute clip from the finished movie. Bo and i sat out on that one but Nana and Ave went in. They had 3-D glasses to wear and Ave said he jumped in a couple parts but he still wants to see it when it comes out.
This is a picture of Bo and the outside of the train.
Then that same weekend we took a one day trip to North Bend and took a ride on Thomas the train! It was so hot but we still had fun. There were many booths around the train depot that had fun things for the kids to do. This is Carli durring the train ride.
And here we are with Thomas after our ride.
This was a little open car that a small train was pushing around. It was faster than Thomas and a lot cooler too! Sad to say, they all liked this ride more than Thomas.
After eating dinner in a diner, we did a hike on Mt Sai. I think this was Jer's and my favorite part. The boys: got dirty, picked some blackberries, found great walking sticks, climbed some rocks and trees, saw a black snake, added more dirt to their existing dirt, and did a light saber fight with the walking sticks. Best of all they both slept the whole way home all 4 hours and 10 minutes! I think Carli liked it too cause she was talkin and droolin the whole way.
I just had to put this in because i was just feeding Carli dinner and she would have rather chewed on her toes than eat peaches. I would pull her foot out and give her a bite and as soon as the spoon left her mouth her leg would shoot up and in would go her toes. She is just fascinated with those toes! Neither one of the boys ever really played with their feet the way Carli does. Silly girl.

Um... i'm not sure where march went. What did we ever do?
My rockin sisters threw Carli a baby shower, it was so fun to see so many friends!
Carli had 6 dr apts, yikes!
Bodee turned the big 3! he had a batman cake (made by mommy) and a small party with family.
We all got colds, yuck! and I thought i was supper mom, immune to things like that, he he he!
Ave had parent teacher conf. He's doing so well. He is still my biggest helper around the house and usually he is really willing, especially if it has to do with Carli. He just loves her, and she him. She gives him the best smiles.
so that was ou march in a nut shell...

This was Carli's first time to go to church. Thanks to Nana, Carli has been able to stay home durring this really bad rsv season. I think she likes her dress. She gave me a big smile when i put it over her head! So you can't tell very well but their shirts and carli's dress are made of orange gingham. love it
So one of my favorite memories of easter when i was growing up was the matching easter dresses mom would make. We have picts of them, green and purple etc... i'm sure many of you can relate... some like it and some don't. Me i love it, i don't do matching christmas... just easter. As for Jeremy on the other hand, he is one that doesn't like to match (anyone), but for me just this one day he tried! what a guy!

Carli had another eye surgery today. We'll find out how it went in the weeks to come. she is doing well right now. Last night she was 4 1/2 pounds and this morning when I went to see her before surgery she looked soooo big! She has really grown.
School is closed today because of snow on the roof of the school. Ave said there was a leak and water damage in the gym yesterday. No school days are so fun!
