Autumn has always wanted to do everything on her own even when they are things she really can't do, such as changing her own diaper!
It's so hard to believe this was only a little over a year ago. It is so sad how fast babies grow and change.

This past Halloween we went to the St. Lukes family day att the pumpkin patch. After doing all the games they had I let them decorate cookies (saved this for last) They did eat some of their cookie when they were done, but with the amount of icing and candy they put on them I think it was even to sweet for them to eat!

Austin's birthday fell on Thanksgiving day this past year so we decided to have just a small family party before we had our big Turkey dinner. I still wanted to make his birthday very special. Since they were out of school all week, we made it a week of birthday fun. We went to the library, bowling, park and out to lunch every day.
Talk about inpiration. I had been putting all these photos to the back of my pile, not knowing quite how to do them. Then I visited The Scrappiest and found all of these fabulous sketches to work with and was able to get so much done!

Spring is in the Air

And what does Spring bring around here, baseball of course. We have a crazy schedule of practices and games, but Jacob loves it. Three games just this week and a weekend tournament that starts on Friday. He is in his second year of machine pitch. This picture is of him from last year since I had to pull it out of the frame to put up the new one. His team last year was the Rangers. This year he is a Longhorn.

Christmas isn't over around here!

I'm slowly but surely working my way through the Christmas photos. Every year I buy each one of the kids a special oranament that they get to open on Christmas Eve and put on the tree. I try to find something that represents the past year. So for Autumn it was Tinkerbell. Her favortie pj's are Tinkerbell and she carries her Tinkerbell phone all over the place. She was Tinkerbell for Halloween, etc!!! I found this adorable ornament that has Tinkerbell sitting on top of a bell. Of course within minutes of opening it she had broken the wings off :( I was able to glue them back on and then it went high up on the tree with the rest of the ornaments I didn't want her to destroy. I used a fabulous sketch from 52 sketches for this LO.

Finally scrapped it!!

I have had such a hard time with trying to figure out how to scrap Autumn's pictures from the day she was baptized. The new Dreamgirls challenge was the perfect inspiration. We had to use a line from the song Time After Time. The line "If you're lost you can look and you will find me" immediately popped out to me and seemed to be the perfect sentiment for this special day.

It is a rare thing to have my 3 little ones sitting next to each other for even a minute. Of course electrical gadgets always help, at least for a little bit. Austin was so excited when he got his leapster. He now feels he is quite the big boy sine he can do some of the same things his big brother can do. I used a great sketch from 52 sketches for this LO.

My baby girl did wonderfully with her surgery. We go back to the dr next week to see how the tubes are and if all the infection is gone. Most of her symptoms have diappeared so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks for all the prayers.
