Here friend, Eryn, built Krispy Kreme donuts....
And another friend, Hunter, chose to build Cabela's...
Their class named their subdivision "Star Creek"...
And here was Abbie's house....
I thought they all turned out fabulous!...I'm already looking forward to doing the project with Annie in 2 more years! :)

Here is Abbie, Annie & Parks posing for a picture!! :)
I know I'm a bit biased, but Abbie was a stunning She-Devil!!

When we went with Knox's, we had the chance to see all the animals in the petting zoo. Boy, was that a hit! All the kids (9 between both families) loved seeing the horses, donkey, dogs, camel, and sheep! All our kids got a kick out of being able to feed all the animals, and Parker didn't even cry very hard when one of the sheep got a little bit of his finger!
As always, the hayride is a big hit! I love how happy all these girls look! :) Could they be any cuter?
And, the final ride before heading how was a trip around the pumpkin patch in the "cow train"...Parker & Connor had been waiting the whole night for this! Annie was a great big sister to sit with Connor & keep him safe!

And a picture with all the girls with an apple in their mouth! If you're ever having a halloween party with a bunch of 9 year old kids, definitely think about bobbing for apples...what a blast!

My little brother, Nate is playing tackle football right now. Parker found his pads & tried them on....pretty handsome, huh?
Here's Nate....he was being cool doing the "peace" sign, but in this picture it looks like his finger is up his nose...LOL!
Grandma Judy made homemade Mac & Cheese for dinner...Connor totally digged it! I thought this was a cute picture of him... :)
My cute "little" brother (he's 8 yrs younger than me, but towers over me by about 6 inches...or more!) and his son, Jefferson! Jefferson totally loved the Mac & Cheese too! I love Jefferson's curls & smile!
While we were in Park City, Connor was so cute. He took every chance he could, to walk around in Abbie's slippers! Notice the truck too...Connor found it at Grandma Judy's house and HAD to have it ALL.THE.TIME!
Here's another picture of Parker....he was building a "fort" for his Rocky-dog....you can't see much of the fort or Rocky underneath, but you can tell Parks was having fun!
Here is Matt's brother, Kyle, with his cute wife Christy & daughter Gabbie! The weekend wasn't nearly long enough to hang out & visit with them, but we sure enjoyed seeing their family!!
And, finally....a view out of our room in Park City. The weather was cool & rainy, but I loved watching the clouds move in over the mountains as the day went on....you can't see the mountains, but they are there, hiding behind the clouds!
We had a fun weekend & are already looking forward to the next time we'll be able to get together with our families!!

Abbie (wanting to not just smile for the camera, but show off her Hannah Montana backpack as well...LOL)!!
Annie....adorable, as always...
Here are the girls getting off the bus after school...did I mention they love riding the bus?!!? They do! And, I love that the bus stop is just 2 doors down from our house!! If you look close, you can see the back of Parker on the left side of the picture...he was way excited to see the girls come home!
And Parker smiling cute right before he heads off to his first day of preschool!

I tried taking the can away from Connor, but he wasn't too happy about that, so I let him just carry it around for a bit before we had lunch...this is how I found him a few minutes later...
...still carrying around the can & playing on the trampoline! :) He's one cute kid, huh?
Funny enough, as of June 1st, I decided to stop drinking soda. Now, I've done this on a few different occassions, but I'm REALLY serious about it this time...as long as I don't give in to "social drinking"...that seems to be when it's the hardest. Wish me luck! :)

This first one I got from my ward exchange. The girl who did it is super crafty & sells Stampin' Up! stuff, so I'm not sure how helpful it is, but I love the colors & layout!
This one is so easy...I went through an "orange" stage, and needed something simple...
This one is fairly easy too...just a lot of layering, plus a bit of ribbon & a brad...
I thought this one looked fairly simple too, round the corners & staple a ribbon on the top. In case you can't read the saying..."True friendship isn't seen with the eyes...it's felt with the heart. Happy Birthday!" I love the colors black, white & red together...
Here's another really simple one that I got from my ward exchange...
This is a "Congratulations" card, but could easily use the layout & find some cute embellishment for the top...
Now...here is one of my favorite layouts ever. I originally received this card in my ward exchange & I thought it was adorable! Sorry it's so blurry...the picture doesn't do it justice...
So, I copied the layout & made this card (sorry, it's blurry again) for one of my exchanges with Matt's family...
And...I liked it so much still, that now this is the card I'm making to exchange with my sisters next month...all the same layout, just different colored ribbon, paper & brad, obviously! :)
Happy Card Making!!
