There is nothing better than Dinos

we spent the morning making fossils with our play dough and dinosaurs

 and the afternoon stomping around the house with our dino feet.

not to worry... we are still reading D books and tracing the letters as well!  but, man... this stuff is way more fun!!

C is for cake, crazy, and cars!!

so put all that together and what do you have???

a crazy cake with cars on top! 
the letter C is the best week yet!!!

we also played a letter match game.  he had to park the cars in the parking spot with the same letter.  that was a good time!!!

foundation group retreat

Lance is the director of newly marrieds at our church.  We had to wait quite a while to get our own group of newly married couples because of several different issues.  But we finally got our group and we couldn't be happier!  They have been such a source of energy and enthusiasm for our family!

We have been meeting since March, but got around to taking a little retreat this Sept.

 We enjoyed the time to relax and get to know each other better.  we played games, shared our hearts, had some good food, and drove our marriages deeper...

so many great memories were had and we're thrilled to see how the LORD is growing this group of  young marrieds... in their personal relationships and their marriages!

I had to include this pic because they are pretty goofy too.  Truly couldn't say enough how much we love these faces!!

they snagged a little pic of us too.  happy to partner with this man in ministry.  it's a wild ride!

fall is in full swing

Allie has started gymnastics again

i've started bible study at watermark.  we're studying genesis and i'm thrilled to get to know my small group and dive into God's word.

the house takes on the full brunt of a busy schedule.... yikes... some days are just like this around here.  what about for you?  please, say yes!!

when things get really crazy... i usually have to craft to relieve stress.  weird.  i know.  we have lots of pallets in the garage so i made something for my bathroom.

Preschool, momma style!

well, here we are.  the last year i have with R!

I can not believe how fast time is flying by.  Because we do not have him in preschool... it was time for some work at home.  He didn't even know how to hold a pencil... poor kid!

i'm going basic for the busy mom.  we are studying one letter a week.  last week was the letter Aa.  He traced some a's, we looked for a's everytime we drove anywhere, talked about the a sound, sang a songs, and read books with the letter A.

However, our fav activity was making our own apple sauce.

he used a plastic knife and cut most of the apples himself!

G... not so much help!

beautiful and ready to cook down all day long!

busy baking day

before school started back, i had a busy day of baking cookies and cupcakes.  i love doing this.  it helps me to have a creative outlet in the midst of crazy town.

it just so happened that i had enough time to have a photo shoot of the goodies once i made them. i'm trying to work on my portfolio and good photos make all the difference.
