The other day russ and i were going to meet at cafe rio, and he was running late, so i had all the kids, by myself I waited in line, ordered, and sat them all down,  i was super anxious going in, but they were so well behaved and made me one proud mama!
PS miller's face makes me giggle!
Miller and halle watch this youtube channel called Nerdy Nummies where she makes really cute cakes, cupcakes, cakepops, you name it, and daddy decided to let them make lego cakes. They were pretty excited!

Ha ha, Pepper's face kills me, she is such a stink. look at that look of death, i didn't catch her about to close her eyes, this is the look she was giving me for multiple shots. 

She wanted me to open them so bad!

Kind of love this kid! 

Going through the stash!

He dug right into the candy! LOVE his curls!

The missing tooth is so adorable! love that girl to death!


Pepper was crying because we made her sit by her siblings for a photo instead of by her basket of candy, i even tried to move her basket with her, but she just wanted to be where she was in the first place. I don't get my kids sometimes. 

Halle's really cool ball shooting gun, Harvey was amazed!



i attempted to get some pics of Harvey and Pepper in my backyard the other evening. harvey was super tired and drooling like a leaky faucet.  pepper was pretty good i just couldn't get her to sit still. not to mention, i don't know how to use my camera.  a lot of the back ground or foreground is in focus while my kids are not. i struggle, but at least i tried. FAIL!!!

i like this one

wish he wasn't hold the lens cap

i actually love this one

ha ha

could have been cute

the satirs look great and in focus???

the table is in great focus


Happy Birthday Harvey & Pepper

We made these two a cake on their actual  birthday and then we celebrated with the whole family a week or so later. It was the perfect weather, we had delicious food and my favorite, home made ice-cream for dessert. Thanks for coming and helping everyone. 

 This is my favorite picture! these two are seriously best friends! Miller loves his grammy so much!

 She's just kind of serious, all the time. Even though she looks stone cold, she is very happy.

 All the cousins, and Russ, playing soccer. PS i love my backyard!

 see, there's a smile! 

 my little cakes, i tried. 

 This is typical of every meal they eat. Pepper goes at it two handed, Harvey just picks his pieces very carefully.
