Family Night

I have always wanted a fire pit for our backyard so when I saw one for 50% off at Fry's marketplace I had to get it. So we had family night outside by the fire and roasted marshmallows. The kids were in pure heaven! They would eat them all if I let them.

Wyatt roasting his marshmallows.

Aiden thought it was fun to get his marshmallow on fire but he wouldn't eat them. Coney had a great time eating them off the ground.

All the boys.

Aiden with his mouth too full to smile! When the weather starts to get cooler we'll be out there all the time!

homemade hot pockets

I found this recipe for homemade hot pockets from http://www.ourbestbites.com/ and they are soooo good! All you do is thaw out Rhodes frozen bread dough, roll it out and cut it into 8 equal pieces. Then you put 2 slices of ham and sprinkle some monterey jack or other cheese on top and then roll the left side over and the right side over that and then roll them up. Bake them for 15 min. at 425 degrees. After they cool just freeze them. When you want to eat them just reheat in the microwave for like 30 seconds. You can also eat them at room temp. I plan on putting them in Wyatt's lunch for school. He loved them and he is the pickiest kid ever!

First day of school

Today was the first day of school for Wyatt and Aiden. Can you believe that I have a second grader? Where did the time go! Wyatt was so excited. He has a really nice teacher that we are really happy with so far and lots of friends in his class.

This one came out a little fuzzy.

He had a lot of supplies to carry!

Waiting to go down the street for the bus stop.

Aiden started preschool again today. He loves his teachers Mrs. Webb and Mrs. Brown. They are Ryan's aunt and cousin and they do such a good job. Aiden was dressed and ready to go to school with his backpack on at 8 this morning. School doesn't even start until 10:45. He had a really fun first day!

This is his COOL pose! This should be a great year!

New baby cousins

We have had two new baby nieces born in the last month. My sister Jaime had her baby at the end of June. They named her Caitlin Marie Ashlock. Isn't she cute?

My sister in law Christine had her baby this morning so we got to go down to the hospital to meet her. She was 9 lbs. 5 oz. and was 21.5 in. long. She had the chubbiest cheeks and lots of dark hair. They named her Annie Kay Koppert. We are so excited to have another cousin on Ryan's side.

The boys love holding babies and are so excited to babysit them sometime!
