Birthday party… early of course.


Girls came over, there was cake, fun, movies… the usual. 🙂 Of course my youngest had her party early because we have learned, no one is in town in August!


She made herself this absolutely awesome cake! She is such a good baker. I’m pretty sure it will be gone by the end of the weekend. YUM!


Class of 2020 has been promoted.


Last night we watched our youngest get promoted from 8th grade. Woohoo! Our tiny baby who is 5’11-1/2″ (You know I need to include that 1/2 because my other daughter is 5’11” and we are serious about our height around here… 😀 ) stood taller than most of the other kids in the school. It made it easy to spot her in the crowd. I can’t believe I’m going to only have high schoolers next year. Yikes!


It was a happy evening for everyone!


Happy 17


She got dried mangos and was very happy about it! Happy Birthday to a great kid. I’m very proud of you Miss Dani.


Oh yeah, and lets not forget a trip down memory lane. 🙂

She has a brain.


My oldest did a study where they took a picture of her brain… so now we have evidence! She does have one… 😉

Lane County Fair 2012

I don’t know where she gets it from but my youngest loves the rides… unfortunately she is the only one in the family who does! Happily she is brave enough to ride them alone. Although I think Dude rode the zipper with her and she said “He didn’t curse this year!” Good job! 🙂

Swing jumper

Swing jumping has become an afternoon event at my house… now they are getting fancy with the poses!


Lock it down on the 2012 school year… school’s out and everyone seems happy about it.


Made it with enough time for a quick ice cream moment!
