Cookies Galore!

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Amelia Mabel….. Amelia Mabel was  peanut today at the dentist. It was a far cry from the joy we experiences during her first visit. We got into the chair, but that was the extent of our visit! Who knows what goes through the mind of a four year old in situations like these, but let’s just say that we’ll skip this appointment and try again in May.

So on the theory of “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade” we decided to come home and bake cookies. Of course we had to decorate them too. Icing everywhere, sticky everywhere, but we had a great time and I think she’ll take them to school today to share them with her friends. We had Christmas trees, holiday ornaments, snowmen, horses and we even threw in a few hearts for good measure. Amelia thought the pink frosting tasted them best! Go figure…

Farmer’s Markets

Monday, July 27th, 2009

There are so many things about Oregon to love.  One of them is the Farmer’s Markets.  We walked from our house every weekend while we were home to the local Farmer’s Market.  There was always live music and we bought some of the best Mexican food I’ve ever tasted in my entire life.  Maddie and Amelia always had the cheese quesidillas!  Before heading home we always bought fresh fruits/vegetables and flowers for Grandma Barbara.

Brewer’s Fest

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

Another reason to love Oregon is because it is so kid-friendly.  Even when Oregon holds its Brewer’s Fest down by the waterfront, not only are the kids allowed in but there is actually a place for kids to get free root beer, have their face painted and play games.  I hung out in there for awhile with the girls while Maddie waited in line to get her arm painted!  Of course when all was said and done, we had to took Max home!  Just another adventure for the girls!! )

Visits with Aunt Sissy and Unca Bubba

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

We had a great time during the back half of our trip to Illinois with Aunt Sissy and Unca Bubba.  My sister has a friend who lives in the country on a farm so we took the girls out there to experience life on the farm.  Amelia saw sheep, kittens, chicks, hens, roosters… she had a great time and it reminded me of  my 4-H days.   We had so much fun around their house.  We walked in the park, feeding the geese and even managed to run the bases as Maddie practiced playing baseball behind their house!  The visits are too far apart as far as I’m concerned but I’m thankful that we get this time together! :)

Visiting with Grandpa Billy…

Friday, July 17th, 2009

Mary came up with the name Grandpa Billy and I kind of like it.  What’s important is that Grandpa Billy is how Amelia knows my dad!!!  During the first part of our trip to Illinois over the summer we stayed at my dad’s house out in the country.  Amelia and Maddie both had lots of fun exploring his garden and catching bugs from the yard.  Amelia managed to do a big bonk down the steps one day but she “bounced” right back and it didn’t seem to phase her one bit!  She had lots of fun playing with Grandpa’s dogs and most of all the dog kennels!  At one point she even locked herself inside one of the kennels so that she could experience a dog’s life!  She was trying to convince the dog to smile for the camera – afterall, she LOVES cameras.  Can you tell if the dog smiled??

Share-a-cake

Monday, July 13th, 2009

One of the great traditions of summer is the Share-a-Cake event. The entire family gets together to exchange gifts for birthdays that happened while we were all apart.  We gathered for a big photo and all managed to look forward and smile EXCEPT for one little peanut!

Hmmm... who is not looking at the camera? :)

I Like Fishing…

Saturday, July 11th, 2009

We camped for three nights up at East Lake and Amelia wanted to do everything we were doing.  When we headed down to the lake to go fishing, she wanted to learn how to fish.  When Maddie started playing with the froglets, Amelia wanted to jump right in the middle of them.  She had  a GREAT time up at East Lake!
