Reformation Celebration 2018

Backposting for October 2017

Our church sometimes has a reformation celebration where kids and adults where costumes (if they want) and play reformation related games.... think "Diet of Worms", "Pin the 95 Thesis", "Tetzel's Toss", etc...

On our way to all the fun, we stopped at Panera... couldn't resist some pics...




Some of the big girls!


More big girls!


Clyde and JT... I always wondered if people knew it was Clyde in there...


These two guys definitely knew it was Clyde :P


 Lu ran a booth...   My kids are SO BIG! 😱


 Falkor had some big fans!

Everybody's favorite SuperGirl!

Iris and Katie...

The girls in the jumpy house!

Lucy still working...


So I took lots of pics of the girls, apparently, but Iris is my youngest, so....

Falkor observing all the merriment.

Clyde and Will assisting with a booth!

Halloween 2017

Backposting for fall of 2017

I told the kids to go thrifty this year.  They did awesome!  I think I purchased Lu a tiara, Clyde a cardboard box, and Iris... nothing.


Lucy was Zoe Nightshade from Rick Riordan's Greek mythology books.  She's one of Artemis's huntresses.


Clyde was an Enderman from Minecraft... apparently, they are really long, black, have purple eyes, and carry around a block of Earth.



Iris was a pirate!




 We went to Mom and Paul's church.  This guy did some magic tricks that REALLY impressed everyone!
 




We went trick-or-treating with friends in their neighborhood!!  It was SO much fun!  Thanks, Susan!



This was the COOLEST house!!

My 37th Birthday

Backposting for fall of 2017

My birthday, per normal, rolled around once again.

Mom took me shopping for the day, bought me cothes and took me out to eat!! It was wonderful!  NO pictures :( .  Dad and Janet had dessert for me and gave me a card and gift. :) . Once again... no pictures!  Ya'll, I'm failing at documentation lately.  :(

We had nothing planned on my ACTUAL birthday, because... life.  It fell on a day full of classes and errands.

But I woke up, stepped out onto our stoop, and immediately knew my sister had paid me an early morning fairy visit!!





Seriously, she did all of that before I was even awake, and the dogs never barked!

Later, while I was running the kids to Iris's Victorian girls class, my WONDERFUL friend, Amy, had made me a from-scratch, coffee-chocolate frappuccino!!  Just for me! and she had JUST made it before class, so it was still all icy and yummy!


Later in the week, Nana, Stephen, and the kids fixed me dinner, dessert and a party!!



Cards from my sweet kiddos and Stephen!!  I know Nana got me one too, there must not be a pic.





Gifts from the babies <3 p="">


 It was fun!!  I felt loved and blessed!!

Fun Miscellaneous Pictures

Backpost from July-September of 2017

This is where are put the pictures I love that don't fit into other posts :)

This is the day that Mom took Sherry, Clyde, and I out to buy Clyde some fall clothes.  He chose Red Lobster just so he could have these bad beauties, here.  Cause Nena is awesome like that!

 After the dogs got into some paper towels, I swept them up and and took a quick pic before disposing. 

This is just happy and pretty :)

Iris wasn't feeling well, and the pups could tell.

Lucy watching some drawing tutorials...


flowers.  if i remember correctly, we were all stopped up with pollen problems when we were buying these, but they were so pretty!

Pokemon Go and downtown exercise

Creative Surfaces let me keep this sample while I waited on my new countertops, and I still keep it because it's so pretty.

Just thought this was cute of Miss Blue Eyes

Antiquing

This hair!  I mean, even when you just slap it up on her head, it's so pretty!

And SHE is just so pretty

the boys working on some plumbing after the new countertops were put in

Clyde letting his darling Lupine ride/play on his back

Clyde imitating his Dad.

Iris morphed the coffee table into a sort of throne/daybed for Falkor

New couch got delivered after old one broke.  It's just a couple of shades darker, other than that.... exactly the same.  Because it's cheap. 

<3 p="">


Iris and Nana made this from scratch I believe.

So this was a fun pic... while he waited on vet.  I was trying to get it centered... couldve done a tad better.  But ISN'T FALKOR THE CUTEST??!!

Snuck a pic in during trombone.

Close-up of these freckles! <3 p="">

We went in Marshall's and Falkor picked out a toy and carried it to the front.

Then Fleur stole it, so Falkor ate her leg.

Silly dog with a stick.

Thanks for joining us!
