Fall Festival '08

Well, our annual Fall Festival was this past Saturday. It was a blast as usual and our numbers grow every year...over 550 people were there. It is awesome outreach and our kids enjoy every second of the festival. I am only sad that I don't have any good pics of Sophie on here. She loved singing in the karaoke booth! I have a ton of video of her! Laura or Amber if you have any pics email them to me please. Amber you can just add them in on your own if you have any. THANKS!

Budding Artists

My kids look forward to every Thursday at noon. Why? Because it is art day! They have class for 1 1/2 hours w/ an awesome art teacher and one of their favorite people! Amber! Here are a few pics from this year so far. The dragon and the monkey are Micah's. He also did an awesome fish painting. I was so shocked when they started bringing home their paintings, b/c they all look so good and I love how each painting reflects some of their personalities.

Baking Fever!

It must be the cold weather..either that or the fact that I am on a diet and I love to torture myself! My sister Laura sent me a link to kraftfoods.com. They have this cute pumpkin bundt cake and tons of other awesome recipes. My house smells so yummy! Here are a few pics to enjoy. The stacked cake is the Luscious Four-Layer Pumpkin Cake. I have everything done on it except the topping, which is melted caramel topping and pecans....yummm! You add that right before serving. On one of my pumpkin cakes I used neufchatel cheese, it is 1/3 the fat and also less calories, everyone said you cannot tell the difference in taste. On the second pumpkin cake I used a spice cake mix (one of Bert's fave's) and I am hoping that will be really yummy too!

Homestead Hollow

Laura and I took the kids to Homestead Hollow on Friday and we had so much fun. Neither one of us had ever been before and we cannot wait to go again!
The kids enjoyed the bungee jump, making their own candles and lots of yummy goodies!
