Coming Soon

This is what has kept me away from the blog:


We've been spending our time packing boxes, painting walls and endlessly searching real estate websites. We are planning on putting our house on the market in January! Wish us luck!

Two Turkeys

Turkeys Making Turkeys

Step 1. Trace hands
Step 2. Add Glue Step 3. Add pink "eye-sashes" because, of course, the turkeys are GIRL turkeys.

So cute, right?

I love my turkeys! ♥

In this picture, Kaitlin and Zoey were checking out some of the farm animals.

I'm Sorry

... the blog has been so lame lately!
We've been spending all our free time painting the exterior of our house. One night we were up until 1AM painting, and we're still not done yet! I hope to have before/after pictures soon!

Happy Birthday, Zoey!

She didn't really dig into the cake like we expected. Maybe she filled up on hot dogs, popcorn and cotton candy instead. ;)

(More pictures from the party are coming....)

~ a few slideshows ~

We sure have been busy!


One day we decided to take a few hours and head to Rocky Mountain National Park. We took a picnic lunch and went on a short hike. It wasn't long before the rain started and we had to make a mad dash back to the car for cover.




My friend Tara and I have been taking the kids to drop-in gymnastics the last couple weeks. It's an hour-long session of "playing" in the gymnastics room. There are trampolines, bars, balance beams, and a bouncy house.
The class is designed for kids under 5. My original intention was to get Kaitlin some social interaction, but Zoey seems to be getting just as much out of it. Its so cute to see her walking around pretending to be a "big" kid. ;)

On Aug 22nd, Brandon turned 32. To celebrate we took the girls to a picnic hosted by our credit union. Besides free food they had face painting, balloon animals and a bouncy castle. The weather cooperated and we had a fun time.
Brandon and the girls had a great weekend playing with all the new toys Brandon got for his birthday! The girls love chasing the remote control truck and his new Wii game - Guitar Hero is fantastic! Happy Birthday, Brandon! :)






And a few more pics i couldn't resist posting! ;)

Woodwork

Last weekend we decided to take on a "small" project.

We sanded and re-stained two tables and a shelf.


Check out some of the before and after pics ~

AFTER:


After doing this "small" project we've come to the conclusion that we are NOT professionals. But, everything looks a lot better than it did, so MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

Friends

Kaitlin has been spending a lot of time with her new neighborhood friends, Julia and Joaquin. They ride bikes, run around the neighborhood and are in and out of each other's houses every chance they get. They love playing in the park behind our house and even had Brandon out there playing freeze-tag one night!

Happy 3rd Birthday, Kaitlin!

Raise your hand if you're 3!!!
On Sunday afternoon we celebrated Kaitlin's 3rd birthday! She requested a swim party and a SpongeBob cake and had a great time celebrating with friends and family. It was a fun-filled day for everyone! (Well, except Zoey, who tried to sleep through the entire party! We finally woke her up when it was time to open gifts.)

The County Fair

The Arapahoe County Fair
Last Sunday afternoon we decided to go to the Arapahoe County Fair. The weather looked like rain, but we packed an umbrella and headed out anyways.
It never rained on us and the sun never came out, but I must admit, it was pretty nice not having to be out in the hot sun!





(Unfortunately, both fish "fell asleep" within the first 24 hours.)

The Garage Sale

So, yesterday's garage sale was a success! We made *almost* the same amount that Charlie's vet bill cost last week. We got rid of a lot of stuff and were really surprised that the hottest selling item was old clothing! You'd be surprised what people will buy for 25 cents!

Here are a few pictures!
