Turtle Power!

Noah went to one of his best buddy Edie's birthday party today. He had a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle party and his mom made these super cute masks and turtle shells out of appetizer trays. SO CUTE! 

The Definition of Laziness

Friday, July 26, 2013

This summer I have been letting the girls stay home occasionally while me and Noah go to the gym. They like to sleep in and be lazy and Noah is an early riser. It just works out for everyone. But I went today and when I got home Mackenzie was annoyed because Macy wouldn't make her a bowl of cereal. So she sat on the couch and starved until I got home to pour her a bowl of cereal, which he is completely capable of doing herself, she just didn't want to walk ALL the way in the kitchen to do it. I worry about that girl. We really hope she finds a husband someday that will take care of her!

Bad Lady

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

When we got home from the zoo yesterday someone had went missing. It took me several hours of driving, calling and face booking but I tracked Lady down. So we felt she must be dog shamed.

Zoo Day With the Colliers!

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

We finally made it to the zoo today with the kids best buddies. They have been wanting to go all summer. It ended up being a pretty nice day and not crowded at all. We got there early and it didn't get unbearably hot until about 1:30-2:00. Noah walked the WHOLE time until about the last 30 minutes. 

This is when we first got to the zoo, everyone is pumped and ready to roll!
And this is the after right before we left. Hot, sweaty, tired and grumpy!  Love the before and after!
And Noah was harnessing a lorikeet with no food so it gave him a little nip. He was pretty mad!

Lady is staying with us this week while the Chapman's are at Falls Creek. Kate is excited, Doc is angry, the cats are annoyed, the kids are ecstatic and poor Lady is really concerned as to why she was left in this circus. 

Garage Saleing!

Craft Out - The Sewing Edition

Friday, July 19, 2013

Macy has really figured out how to sew and I have been buying scrap fabric at garage sales so she has been cranking out crafts at warp speed. My favorite was her homemade sleep mask. I think it turned it awesome!

Iced Coffee

I have always kinda liked iced coffee but I always just let my hot coffee cool off. I made the Pioneer Woman's version of iced coffee where you cold brew it. Night and day difference! Iced coffee is my new favorite thing!

Death By Splinter

Tuesday, July 2, 2013

Noah has had a splinter in his knee for over 3 months. We have tried everything to get it out but it finally had to just work it's way out. Jason finally managed to get it out today. It was more like a hunk o wood than a splinter but at least now it's out and his knee is healing. 


Monday, July 1, 2013

Macy has been Jason's late night fishing buddy. Mackenzie just likes to go to bed!

Who You Gonna Call?!

Noah went to a Ghostbusters birthday party this weekend complete with proton packs and someone dressed as the Marshmallow Man he got to shoot with silly string. He is now full on obsessed with the Ghostbusters.

Drive In Movies

Saturday, June 29, 2013

We took the kids to the drive in the first time this weekend with Carrie and her girls. They had SO MUCH fun! We watched Monster University and Now You See Me. We thought the kids would sleep through the second movie but the girls powered through. Noah made it about halfway through. It was definitely something we will be doing again!

Fancy Nancy Tea Party

I made some sweet potato brownies that I mainly intended to eat myself. But the children sniffed them out and polished them off. They had ZERO idea they ha sweet potatoes in them. Score!

Local Goodies

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

I picked up our milk today and stopped by a produce stand in town and got fresh eggs and some produce from Texas. I'm glad we are finally getting some more food options in Duncan!
