Noteworthy Events

Colton turns 2 months old

1st day of school for Syd (2nd grade) and Wes (Kindergarten). So grown up...sniff.

A visit to Great Grandpa Paul (Aaron's Grandpa). This is very special because this is my kids ONLY living great grandparent and Sydnie and Wesley will remember him from this visit! It was so nice to see him.

Colton was blessed at church Sept. 6th. Aaron's parents, brother, and sister with her family got to be here for this special event. We got to spend the weekend with family, eating and talking. We visited great grandpa, then drove back to Spokane and ate yummy pizza and swam at the pool at the hotel, that was a big hit with the kids! I heart family! Thanks to friends and family near and far for coming to Colton's day!

This is Coco on his blessing day, but I failed to get him in his church clothes. Actually, I never put my kids in "white clothes" for their blessings, not a big fan (plus I am cheap).

Also, this past week (not pictured) my friend Emily and I canned 16 jars of salsa and 24 jars of peaches! YUM!
