It's Been A Little While

It's been a while since I have blogged anything. I guess our lives are uneventful. Just regular everyday life. Jake has been busy building benches and enjoying his new shop (garage). He has sold 4 of them! Sierra has been having so much fun at school. She has been learning so much. She comes home, sits down and practices writing her numbers. She told Jake the other day that she has a boy friend at school - hmm, I don't think Jake liked that one. Maddie of course wishes she could go to school, but until then she is getting really good at checking the mail. That is her job on school days. And me, well, same old thing. I had my first card class this last weekend. It was fun! Can't wait until the next one!
Anyway... on to the pictures. Sierra drew these bugs yesterday and I thought they were so cute. The top one is a cute little happy lady bug. The bottom on is a cool bee. I just love that she loves to draw!

Yes, this is seriously how Sierra is dressed today. She is especially proud of her "X's" on her shoes. She looks very stylish from her head all the way down to her backwards feet. Today was a stay at home house cleaning day - if you couldn't tell.

Halloween '09

We had a great Halloween this year! We had the two cutest ladybugs out there! I loved that the girls wanted to be the same thing. I wanted them to be fairies, and they wanted bugs, so I made them fairy type ladybugs- glitter and all! The girls loved it! Trick or treating was so much fun. The weather was warm-ish, nice enough to skip the mall and go to the streets. Maddie thought trick or treating was the coolest thing ever! She was so excited and ran to every house. It is so much fun to see their excitment.

Megan and her friend Bianca came with us. They were fun and dressed up. Jake and I didn't.

Maddie was so stinkin cute, but I was having issues with the camera and couldn't capture it. But I got a good 'flashy' picture. Just picture a little 2 year old ladybug running like 2 years do, wings and piggy buns bouncing - big grin from ear to ear- so cute!

The girls were very interested about the whole pumpkin carving process. Sierra thought the guts of the pumpkin were cool. Sierra carved a bat (with Jake's help), Maddie carved a scary castle, Jake carved a skull, and I carved a regular jack-o-lantern.
