Drywall Delivery

Drywall was delivered today!  Our friend Dan came over and helped Cameron carry 48 sheets of drywall up to the attic. They got the job done in about 40 minutes.

One step closer at getting the attic renovation finished.

Dessert after Dinner

My mom got the girls fudge popscicles. They are the best dessert after dinner.

Sweet Flour Gorditas

I've had a craving for sweet flour gorditas.  The recipe came from Lupita, a great lady I love that lives in Mexico. The recipe she gave me doesn't have exact measurements (just like a good 'ol Mexican recipe). The girls helped me make the gorditas. They taste just like I remember them. Ana loves to eat them with a dab of Amish rolled  butter. So good!

Graeter's Ice cream - First Day of School Tradition

This is the fourth year that I take the girls to Graeter's Ice cream to celebrate their first day of school. It was fun to hear about their first day experience and new class mates.

First Day of School

Emma and Ana are now in the same school! Emma is going into Thurs grade and Ana is going to first grade. So much fun!

Dolls at Target

After the proceeds from their sale at the farmers market, the girls wanted to go to Target and buy these dolls. Poor things, by the expression on their faces you would think we have deprived them of toys their entire lives. Ha!

Kids Farmers Market - Sew Along

While Cameron and I were in San Antonio, the girls stayed with John & Nancy. The girls sewed bookmarks, mug mats and lavender sachets to sell at the kids farmers market in Oakwood.  It was a great experience for the girls.  They had to set up their table and make their signs. Emma was good at giving change and writting down the sales. Maybe they will do it again next year.
