Making Pizza!!!

Lately Noah has been fascinated with, making boxes, triangle pizza shapes, eating it and just talking about it.
I decided to do a craft about pizza.
I cut two round shapes from a cereal box.
We colored the pizza red for the sauce and then I gave them a variety of different toppings: paper scraps, marshmallows, macaroni, and cereal.
What a blast!!!

They even put their pizzas in the oven to cook.
And when they came out we had to wait for them to cool off before we could eat them!!!
I must say, the kids did a great job and really carried this project much further than I had expected. I love to be creative with the kids, it's exciting to see where their imagination will take us.

Happy Birthday Audrey!!!

Happy Birthday little Ladybug
Her first Halloween....
I could never have imagined the joy I found in daughter.
I think Heavenly Father each day for blessing our family with your beautiful spirit.
My two precious gifts.

Still our Little Ladybug.
I asked Audrey what she wanted for her birthday, Ladybugs or Strawberry Shortcake. I even showed her a picture of each on the computer, I asked her the same question reversing the know, sometimes they just say what you said first, no matter what it is. And each time she wanted ladybugs.
She wanted that doll out of the box immediately.
Two things that make Audrey special...
1. She has a tender heart and is always willing to share
2. She has the silliest sense of humor

Pumpkins all around....

We took the kids to a pumpkin patch this last weekend.
There was a maze made out of hay bales, which wasn't too difficult since a toddler could see over the top, but the kids loved it.
Audrey's lost......
Noah just wants to climb out and go wreak havoc on something else.
In addition to lots of pumpkins, we saw turkeys, goats, chickens, quail, and bunnies.

My Heart Melted....

When I came around the corner and Noah came running up to me and said "Look mom, I made BYU!!!"
