Leaf time

Decided today was perfect for the main leaf cleanup. I had a little help...

And midway through, on a cloudy day with occasional sprinkles, I looked up and the sky had momentarily cleared and it was nice to see my progress.

Tammy hit a major milestone today too. She went up to Indiana for the opening of the first store to carry her products. We're all very proud of her here at home.

Gideon pulled his legs backwards tonight and asked, "Dad, is this exercising? It must be, because it hurts my body."
In other news, Gideon finished soccer 2, 2, and 6. All of the ties were 0-0. Sylvia's team was a bit harder to track the points of, so I'm not sure where she finished. Here are some pictures though:

I'll add some posts with a summer photo collection soon.

Also we started a junior Lego league with some friends. We had the kids build something they felt we should name it for. G built an alien, A built a treasure box, and K built a ship. So the team will be named the Alien Treasure Ships. I rather like it :)

A busy day for Daddy and Sylvia

We had a busy day today. I had the day off, so I took Sylvia to the zoo, then the Magic House, then her first soccer practice!

Happy Birthday Sylvia!

Three years ago she came into our lives, Daddy had a sweetheart, Bubby had a sissy and I had a new little friend.
She adds sunshine and sparkle to our days, and lights up our lives in tons of ways.
She's sweet and sassy, and dances to her own beat, and without her our lives would be incomplete.
I love her inside and out.
Isn't this what life is truly about!
Happy Birthday my Silverbell!

Happy 6 Year Wedding Anniversary!

Our lives seem to be a continual whirlwind of adventure and excitement. In 6 years of marriage we have done so many things. Had a baby, bought and rehabbed a house, had another baby, traveled occasionally, and now Tammy is even starting a small online business. We've been blessed with good friends, good family, and wonderful children. Our marriage has been the most wonderful thing for us both. Here's to six wonderful years, and many many more to come.

Daddy was gaming Friday night so when I asked the kids what they wanted to do, Sylvie wanted to make cupcakes. So we made cupcakes for Daddy! We had to taste test before he got home, I have to say vanilla bean cupcakes with lemon cream cheese icing is delicious.

It really is a wonderful life!

This week marks one year of being an official "Stay at home mom". It has been a wonderful year, I feel extremely blessed that God opened or should I say closed doors that allowed me this honor. The house is semi quiet right now, Sylvie is asleep, Josh is gaming with friends, Gideon is playing transformers and I am just relaxing. My life is so wonderful, it didnt necessary turn out the way I thought it would, but turned out great. Gideon is growing up so fast, he starts kindergarten this year! I just want to stop time. He is so smart (of course) and so sweet at the same time. He adores Josh and at times I do have to say I feel a little left out, but then Josh reminds me that a little girl is the same way with her momma. She is almost potty trained!!! She has been so easy! We are still working on #2 but she is making progress. I am so happy to be almost done with diapers, but then sad at the same time that the baby stage is almost over. She is my little buddy. She tells me daily that I am her best friend. (heart melt) Well off to get a little boy to bed, just wanted to blog for a minute. :-) Good night friends!

Happy Kitchen

I spend a lot of time in my kitchen (waist line actually shows) but truthfully most of art projects, game time, hanging out is in our kitchen. The colors I choose are very muted colors, colors I would not get tired of, but recently I have started to want to add some color.

I have everything, not to sound spoiled but I don't need anything. Sure I have wants, but when people started asking me what I wanted I didn't know what to say till I started thinking about things I like but would never spend the money. One thing is fiesta dishes. So I decided when someone asked I would mention that.... Well lets just say you ask you shall receive. I was pleasantly surprised to receive 6 sets for Christmas. I found a matching pitcher and 4 glasses for 5.00 at goodwill! The kids love them, every night when I set the dishes out for Gideon to set the table I hear him ask everyone what color they want. There is something about them that brightens my day!
