Oh Peyton!

Peyton is such a wild child. His playful and silly personality makes everyone in the family smile and laugh. He is always looking for a way to have more fun, make you giggle or be active. From hiding under laundry baskets pretending to be a kitty to being Mr. Dare Devil and jumping off Mom's bed he is busy! His temper and need for answers makes him has sharp as can be. You can't pull a fast one with this little man. Now that the kids have started school he is so upset when I drop them off and he doesn't go with them. He is constantly asking me "where is Gavin?" and "where is Kayla?" When I tell him they are at school he slumps and pouts. Sweet morning kisses and peek-a-boo faces are what I get to wake up. Sneaking in the bedroom and quietly talking to mom is my way of waking up. His laugh brightens my day, his smile makes my heart swell and his little kisses (with a smacking sound) brings rainbows to my life. He is a handful, a whipper snapper a monster but he's mine and I love him.

Home Made

My mom loves to sew. She has made my family many quilts, blankets and even curtains! So I was really pushing her to make Mikayla and I matching pj pants. I found this material at the fabric store and just had to have it. Later we were able to find matching socks and even bought a pair for Grandma to wear to! I always love things that are home made because really it's just like a big ball of love!

Dino Stories

This paper has been in my stash for years. I love when I use something that's been around for awhile. It makes me feel like my purchases aren't just useless. I know we all feel like that at times. So chalk one up for Kelly!

When we love...

We grow. This is one of my favorite paper packs. It's called bella. Perfect for an array of different pages. Worked perfect for Steph and Mike's wedding since the colors were right on!

Sweet cousins

These little sweet peas are just to so sweet. They are only two weeks apart and are just the princesses of the family right now. I love how their little personalities are so different. Maddie is a cheeky little girl. She is always getting into things and fights for what she wants. She can hold her own with all those older kids and boys around. Ashli on the other hand is just as busy but much softer in her approach. She is a little lover and cuddles and sits and plays with you. I really love how both pages give a feel for their personalities. Maddie's is still soft and sweet but a bit more playful and wild just like her. Ashli's on the other had is soft, girly and sweet just like her. Watching them grow gives me great joy and I can't wait to continue to do so.

Lucky Me

Some pictures I feel just lucky that I was able to catch. They are just so beautiful, so insightful sometimes. That's how I feel about these. They look so peaceful...for once!

The "heat" of change.

I know it's suppose to be the winds of change but really this year its the heat. Usually we feel that cooler weather coming. In the night winds and morning air...but not this year. I still can feel the change in the air though. School is going to be here and I can't wait. Believe me when I say that its not just because if I have to play one more game of uno or listen to one more fight about rocks from the back yard I may just go crazy but because I love all things back to school. I love shopping for school supplies. I love the cooler weather. I love the smell of fall. I am so a fall person. I can't wait to go to the cider mill and pick pumpkins. I can't wait to ride my bike across the fallen leaves and listen to the crunch crunch. I love PTL meetings, dance classes and of course Gavin's soccer games! I just signed him up and I can't wait to see him play again. Since I was in that sort of spirit these last couple of days I decided to post a couple of soccer pages I was able to finish this summer.
