The Taste of Warm Goodness

I wanted to make some chocolate cookies this morning. It was a nice cool morning to turn on the oven, heat up the house, and fill the house with a sweet aroma. Not to mention, it would be a great breakfast...

CRAP, no brown sugar! Are you kidding me?!

Now I have to get ready and at least be presentable to go to the store AND have Ambria looking presentable too. And, while I am at the store, I might as well pick up a few more things...

I forgot the loaf of bread (I will learn to make a list) but the brown sugar worked great!

Lunch was delicious!

My Kid Doesn't Care What Anyone Thinks

Mariah was VERY adamant that she wanted to only wear ONE pigtail in her hair today. She was VERY excited about this and could hardly hold in her excitement. She absolutely LOVED it!

What do you think...a new fashion trend?

It is Michigan Football Season Again

(On a side note, Mariah was devastated to see her sister wearing her old favorite dress and she cried for literally an hour upon the realization that the dress is now Ambria's).

My Silly Two Year Old

Ambria doesn't like to ride in the cart when we are shopping anymore. This provides a whole new set of frustrations...

"Put that down"
"No touch"
"Walk nice"

Today Ambria decided she wanted to pretend to be a DOG in the middle of the cereal aisle. She got down on all fours, started crawling around and barking.

Gotta love her.

First Day of Kindergarten

Not off to a very good start...

Ended better than it started!

School kid Wanna-be


So sad. Yesterday was probably our last beach day.
We soaked it up.

Good-bye summer!

A Weekend with My Family

Pictures with Grandma and Papi and all the grand kids. This is always a difficult task working with five kids ages 5 and under.

Cuddling with Grandma in the shade. Ambria was pretty tired at this point as she decided to STAY AWAKE FROM 2:00am to 5:00am!! She thought the sleep over was a blast and decided to wake up the whole house by giggling and squealing with delight. Everyone wasn't as delighted as she was. Thanks, Ambria.

Aiden pushing Ambria. It was so cute watching these two interact and try to "talk" to each other.

The kids playing with the "water rocket" as Aiden tries his best to stay dry. He wasn't too successful.

Thanks Grandma and Papi for such a fun weekend!

Zero motivation today.
