In keeping with tradition, it's time for my yearly blog post (although I still want to try and be better)

It was the first day of school (yesterday) for Kody and Mollie

backpacks on and lunches packed, it's time go head on out!

they both insisted on riding the bus and NOT having me meet at the school and walk them to class.

so, Madi and I went and celebrated with new haircuts...
here's the big 3rd grader coming home...
can you tell that her hair is pink?  the stylist gave her a little sassy spray of pink for the day!
followed closely behind or cute little first grader, it was a great day for both!

Is anyone still out there?

Hello, does anyone still read my blog? If so, I want your address! I'm working on Christmas cards and would like to get them in the mail in the next few days. So, please send me your address! Also, I will try to post some new pictures sometime in the near future. Thanks for your patience!

Back to School

Well, I feel like I just blogged about the first day of school last year and here we are again!
Kody started 2nd grade last week actually, but I wanted to wait and get the girls' pictures on here too. He is at a new school this year but thankfully has some friends in his class. So far so good!
Watch out world, Mollie is in kindergarten! Since she has afternoon kindergarten, I took her out for a haircut while Madi was in school. She was so excited she could hardly stand it! At dinner Brett asked her what she learned in school today and she said "nothing." Oh well, maybe tomorrow...Madi is in preschool 3 mornings a week and just loves it! I dropped her off this morning for her first day, and she barely even said good-bye. It's okay, I know she loves me...

The Jokester

Madi: knock knock
Kody: who's there?
Madi: boo hoo
Kody: boo hoo who?
Madi: uh-oh, I jumped on your head!

I didn't say it was hilarious, just silly!

My Mom the College Grad!

We went to Utah last month to attend my Mom's graduation from Utah State University. Isn't she amazing?! And isn't she so cute in her cap and gown? We are just so proud of her, and all of the hard work that she has put in these past 4 years to reach this goal that she made for herself. She received a bachelor's degree in Horticulture, with a focus on Horticulture Therapy. For her senior project she set up (and will continue to maintain) a therapy garden at the local nursing home for the dementia patients. As you can see from a few of these pictures, she has created a jungle in her own house. What you might not know is most of these plants were rescued from the trash heap. She nursed them back to health, sometimes grafting them together. Now all I want to know is why didn't I inherit her green thumb?!

Seven Birthdays...

My baby is 7, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. Buzz Lightyear and Lightning McQueen have been replaced by Legos, Pokemon and Wall Ball. Kody is finishing up 1st grade and has made some really good friends. I've had so much fun reading books like Harry Potter and Percy Jackson with him at bedtime. He started taking Karate this year and absolutely loved it (although he said there were too many push-ups and jumping jacks for his taste). This little man is so sweet and kind, he even received recognition in school for his kindness! We love you so much Kody, and are very proud of the person you are becoming.

This Girl...

What can I say about Madi? She turned 3 last month...

We had a party, complete with grandparents...and she continues to entertain us every day!
