I'm not sure if I should be embarassed or proud to say if these were around when I had Ally I totally would have had a pair. So cute and funny!!! You have to go to their site and see all the fun styles. Those are my type of mommies!

Ally's Dance Recital

Friday Ally had her first dance recital. After she performed she said to me "That was fun, I want to do it again". I had to explain that she only gets to do it once but I think it is safe to say we have a performer in our family. I wonder where she gets that from?! Here are pics from the night, but because we couldn't use flash photography (distracts the little dancers) the pictures aren't very good and the video is still on the camera, but you get the idea.

Day at the Park

Yesterday was our last Activity Day activity until the next school year. Since it was at a nice new park I thought it would be a perfect time to take some pics of the kids. Thankfully the weather was not too sunny (no squinting eyes) and not raining (as per usual here in Seattle). So I actually got some GREAT pics, if I do say so myself. :o)

Max finally figured out how to use a cup, yay!!!

The Rocket slide (kids came shooting out so fast)!
Ally and her friend Sabrina.

Despite this pic, they were loving the swing.

See, Max liked it!!!

And Ally too!

Ally is playing with a long worm, YUCK!!!

My sweet Colin.

My wacky Colin.

The park was a huge success, it got 2 thumbs up!!

Awesome Cookie Recipe!

I am not one to just try new recipes unless I have tested the goods or was strongly encouraged to try a certain one, but I found this one online and it is DELICIOUS!!!

And I actually did wrap mine in cellophane and freeze most of them. Great to grab one and have a cookie dough treat too without making a whole batch and consuming a ton of it because you have a craving! Try it!!

Not that he reads my blog anyways, but I must say Happy Anniversary to my honey! It has been 8 eventful years and we have an eternity still to go. I am SO thankful for him!! He is a wonderful husband and dad. Because of him our family is so blessed. And although I do not tell him or show him enough, I love him more every day! I can't believe I have known him for more than half my life (17 years actually). I never would have thought I would marry the outgoing cute boy from Youth Conference. At 14 you don't thionk, "Gee, that boy looks like a he'd make a great husband, companion, provider and father", it's more like "Look at that guy, he is HOT! Think he'll ask me to dance?". I just got lucky with everything that came along with that. Because of Spencer I am able to stay home with our beautiful children and keep our home a place of peace......mostly (hopefully). I love you honey!!
