Busy Saturday

We had a non-stop Saturday, Preston had soccer camp from 10-11:30 and then Maren had a birthday party from 12-2. While Maren was at the party we dressed Preston and his friends up like a rock band so they could participate in the town parade!


It's safe to say the Preston doesn't have great rock band hair, he simply has too much and it is way too thick! The other members of the band had great spikes and mohawks and Preston just had a messy mop!


Then we stayed around for all the food and games at our towns Volkfest, it was a warm day so everyone had a blast. We came home grabbed some grilling supplies and meet up with friends for dinner and drinks.

GR is out of town for the next week so just the same old stuff - cleaning, work, school and small house projects!

So cute...

Maren looked so cute for school today but wouldn't give it up for a picture. So this is the best I could do!



She is still pretty cute even if she isn't cooperative.

Same Old, Same Old

So the kids have been in school for just a bit over a week and already it feels like Christmas should be here! Just more of the same old, same old.

We helped Carissa celebrate her 30th birthday on Friday, she hardly looks 30 but we went along with it!




We did have a huge feast - all homemade!

Apps - Brushetta, hummus, spinach and dill dips with various breads, crackers and cheeses, Antipasto salad and pesto torte

Dinner - Spicy Vodka Penne & Garlic Bread

Dessert - Red Velvet Cake & Cupcakes

1st Day of School, again....

Today is Maren's first day!! She is very excited and I hope her day goes as well as Preston's did! Preston had a blast yesterday and didn't want to come home at all, not sure what that is saying exactly. The kids dressed up a bit more for the official first day of school pics.





Maren had a bit of a meltdown when we got to school because she wanted her bunnies (in her lunch) right that moment. This is one of the main reasons that I think school will be good for her. It's better to learn sooner rather than later that the world does not revolve around Maren! I'm just glad someone else gets to teach that to her...

I left both kids getting ready for lunch and perfectly happy which means so far the 2nd (or 1st) day of school is a success. I won't count it a complete success until I pick them both up without an incident at 3!

And it's over

I hate to admit I have no pictures of Labor Day Weekend! The kids did have a nice weekend, they had their friends over Sunday for pool and BBQ and then Monday we did stuff outside to get ready for Fall/Winter.

With the start of school I can officially proclaim Summer over, its supposed to be cool with rain this week so that helps cement it. I'm sure it will get warm again during the month but here's to hoping the hot summer stickiness and mosquito's are gone!

Not much planned this week, just some last minute prepare for school stuff and then the kids get to meet their teachers on Thursday & Friday. Preston has his same teacher from last year which he is excited about and he thinks its neat Maren will be in the class next door. Maren is just thrilled, she really wanted to be in class last year but was too little.

I promise plenty of pictures later this week.
