Summer Finale at the Cabin



We went up to the cabin last week for a final time before school started. Jason was out of town so it was nice to be up there with my sister and my mom. The kids had a great time. Hailey, Emma and Nathan (my nephew) caught at least 6 frogs and a salamander. Then my nephew Taylor caught this snake. Hailey thought it was so cool. SHe let it crawl in her shirt. I am sure she not really my daughter. Gross.

Trevor looking GQ


Before school started I took the kids to Sterling (35) miles away to a bigger swimming pool that has slides and splash pads. The kids absolutely loved it and had a great time. Trevor loved to lounge on these chairs!!!

Back to School







School started last Monday. Lyndsey has 2 pictures because she had her screening day and then her actual real first day where she met her teacher and stayed all day. So far Lyndsey really likes kindergarten- the first day she was really tired but since she has seemed to adjust quite well. Samantha was really nervous to start 2nd grade but since meeting her teacher she had loved it! It's quite fun trying to drop them off at the same time and pick them up at the same time when Lyndsey goes to South and Sam goes to North. Trevor thinks he's big enough to go to school and of course needed a picture also!



Lyndsey's Bday!







Lyndsey turned 5 on Saturday if you can believe it. It's crazy how fast the kids are growing up. She started kindergarten last week as well and it's all day so it's just Trevor and I at home!!! Lyndsey had a pool party at the AmericInn and had a good time. She invited some friends from preschool and church. She loves to swim in that life jacket that Julie gave her!!!

Samantha's Baptism

Just a heads up that Samantha will be getting baptized this year- we will probably do it on her bday which is December 28th. We may do it Monday or Tuesday not sure yet. We hope that everyone can make it to support her and it would be fun to see everyone on the holidays also.

Spicy Spaghetti Sauce

1 pkg McCormik Italian Mushroom Seasoning
1 green pepper
2 anaheim peppers
2 jalapeno peppers
1 onion
1 lb ground beef
garlic

Red pepper
White pepper
Black pepper
Salt

I chop the onion and peppers and cook them with the hamburger. Add the garlic- either fresh or bottled to taste. Then put the seasoning in with the directions with the tomato sauce. I think it's 1 can tomato sauce and 1 1/2 cups of water. Then just let simmer for 15 minutes. The amount of pepper I add depends on who I'm serving it to.


I don't know if that made any sense. Let me know if you have questions- I don't have a set recipe.......
