What can I say it is in their blood. My children just love to make stuff!

At the end of August I got to have my BF from AZ come up! She refuses to come when its cold so she has very limited times of coming. She also says once Mark is making the big DR bucks I have to start going back to AZ instead! Sounds good to me. She got to bring her youngest daughter out with her and her and MJ are the same age so that was super fun. My kids love her they even call her Auntie.
We dropped my kids off at my moms and took a weekend trip to Nauvoo! It was so nice to not have my own kids to worry about and give Sheri my full attention.
If you have any questions please feel free to leave me a comment and I will help direct you in any way possible to the right answer.

All we do in the summer is play outside usually. Brecken came and got me and said "mommy I cleaned up for you!" "What did you clean? We are outside!" "POOP!!" Oh boys will be boys.
So we have a little tradition, on your birthday you chose whatever you want and I will make it for you. So this year JJ decided on ravioli, artichoke and fruit kabobs. Weird combination but she loved it.

There are so many things I love about this girl, probably because I am her mom. But for the sake of journaling I have to share a few she is so silly, she has the funniest giggle, she is super compassionate and caring. A few things I have a love hate relationship with are she is just like me, she is super independent and stubborn. So although one day those will be strengths right now they are battles.
Jaylee ran over the gutter with her bike and so she was so upset about it. I wasn't made I just made sure she understood that it wasn't ok. So she offered to sell her stuff to make money! It was so so so funny. She sold seashells and a spider ring and my tomatoes. Because we have so many awesome neighbors she sold everything and "donated" the money to me, of course I stuck it back in her piggy bank when she wasn't looking. Good life lesson though. The best part about this story is when I was her age I did the same thing but for fun all the time. I would sell anything I could to the neighborhood kids. She is just like me.
My little guy got big, his first day of preschool was Aug 16, 2011. He was so excited to be big like his big sister.

My kids love when Mark comes home because he will take them frog hunting.. No frogs where injured during this process, well that I know of! I hate slimy things so no way am I touching them. I wish I could let you hear the screams that come from them when he gets one! They just think its so freaking cool.
So the zucchini where out of control this year I was able to shred so much zucchini and share with two other people. Obviously I didn't take a pick of tall that. The kids decided they needed to pick the pumpkins because they were orange! Ugh.. Out tomato plants grew taller than me this year! I hate gardening but I love watching my kids help me!
