Brooke's 18th Birthday

I cannot believe I am the parent of an adult.  That is so weird!

It was a pretty simple birthday.  We took the whole family out to Applebee's for supper.  That was a nice treat!  Then we came home and Brooke opened presents...well some of them...some were ordered online and not arriving until a couple days later...typical of me.  Then we had Brooke's favorite, dirt cake.  It was simple but it really was a fun evening.

Sophia's Video Of Levi

When I was going through the videos, I found this one that Sophia took and I never even knew about it.  She is getting him to say "oh".  She even fixed his hair into a mohawk...not so crazy about that one, but it is funny!

Levi Sneezing

Levi can do a pretty good fake sneeze.  You have to wait until about half way through the video, but I think it's worth the wait.  It's so cute!

Levi Scooting Around

Levi has learned to scoot around to get where he wants to be!  So even though he isn't crawling, he is definitely getting harder to watch and keep out of trouble.

Starting Our Garden

Daddy will be so happy to know that his girls got the vegetables planted for our garden.  He and the girls picked out what they wanted to grow and the things needed to get it started while he was off of work.  But they didn't have time to get it planted before he went back to work.  Emily and Grace are hoping to do a bigger garden this year down on some of the irrigated land.  They plan on selling some things, such as corn, at the farmer's market in the fall.  By the house we will have the smaller plants.  Hopefully we can get it set up so all the wild animals don't just eat what we are growing!

Levi and Matthias - 9 1/2 mos.

We were able to get Levi and Matthias together again one afternoon last week.  It is so much fun, especially now that they are taking notice of each other.  They are so much the same as far as size goes, but boy are they complete opposites when it comes to personality.  Levi is so laid back and Matthias is ready to go find the next fun thing to play with!  Levi isn't even crawling yet and Matthias is almost ready to walk!  They are both so cute, sweet, and so wonderfully unique!

Some Pics Of The Boy

Every Once In A While...

...I have a good day and do something with the kids I feel good about.  Unfortunately it seems that lately it is a rare occasion.  It is so much fun to see them working together on a project.  I really need to do this more.  

Today we did our second lesson in our new art book that I bought probably two months ago...I know...pathetic...

Anyway, they are learning about lines and they really enjoy this book!  Here are some pictures...

I had one more with them looking, but Allison had a crazy girl look on her face with a scissor in her hands, mind you, so I decided to not post that one!
