Christmas at the Club House

One of the fun things that we were able to do this year was attend the Christmas Party that was put on by the Rancho Sahuarita Club House. First thing that we did when we got there was visit with Santa. This was Troy's first time sitting on Santa's lap. He was not a big fan. It did not last long and ended in tears. Justice is also not a big fan of Santa Clause, in fact she would not even stand close enough to get into the family picture.Next the girls all decorated a yummy Christmas cookie.
Face painting is one of the girls favorite things. Brooklyn picked out a cute snowman.While the girls were off making crafts, Dad and Troy were walking around.


Another great season of tumbling for the girls. Its amazing to see how much they have learned over the last 6 months. Justice just loves the uneven bars. Brooklyn likes to give coach a hard time, no really she's a turkey. Georgie & Madison love the beam. Georgia showing off her medal.

We are so proud of you girls!!

Pumpkin Carving

Here's the whole crew carving up some crazy pumpkins. Justice, Maddy & Georgia are old enough now where they can pretty much do just about everything from cleaning out the pumpkins to cutting out the faces.
Justice playing in the mush

One thing that we did learn this year... Its way to warm here in October to carve pumpkins 2 weeks before Halloween. By day two our poor pumpkins were wilting away and after only a week they were turning black and moldy. Here we are with our finished products.

Spicy Bean Chili

I thought that it would be alot of fun to enter my chili in the Chili Cook off sponsored by Rancho Sahuarita. Justice came along and help me get everything all setup. It was alot of fun, I cant believe the number of people that showed up to try all the different chili's. In the end Our "Spicy Bean Chili" took home 3rd place, Yeah! Cant wait until next year to do it again.

The Angels

Brooklyn decided to give T-ball a shot this season, so far she really likes it. Its been a challenge to keep Brooklyn from playing in the dirt when she's in the out Field. That girl loves to play in the dirt.
Other than that its been a pretty fun season. Here she taking a swing at the ball.Go Spicy Bone!!

Happy 8th Birthday Justice

I know I always say this... But wow where does the time go. Its so hard to believe that our baby is 8 years old. All Justice really wanted for birthday was to get her ears pierced. In the end Matt and I caved in, we really wanted to make her wait until she was 30. She was really nervous, but did great. Brooklyn and I took cupcakes into school for Justices birthday, and then Justice took more cupcakes in for all her friends at tumbling. Grandma & I made Justices favorite thing for dinner... Steak, shrimp and mashed potatoes, YUM ( mom's favorite too ) After diner Justice invited some of her friends over for more cake.

Justice & Dylan
Happy Birthday Justice!

Happy Birthday Little Brother

Happy Birthday Little Brother! Troys birthday started out with a visit to the Drs for his 1 year check-up. It was definitely a good day for Troy because they could not get him in for shots.. But Troy is doing great, he is 50th percentile for height but only 10th percentile for weight.
Here's little bud getting ready to open all his presents
Gosh, I love these guys.

Troy was not a huge fan of the cake and in the end his face was covered in red frosting.
Love You Baby Bird!

Apple Annies

This is the first time that Matt and I have been able to take the kids out to an apple orchard and pick apples. When we got there we grabbed a couple of buckets, a wagon and a apple picker "thing".
We picked a couple different kinds of apples, one for baking and some for eating. Then headed over to the peach fields to get some peach "nuggets"What a great time. We will be back!

Brooklyn has been so excited to start school. It was killing her that she had to wait a week after the older girls went back. Here's Brook before we rode our bikes down the street to Mrs. Kylee's house.Brooklyn just before she went in to school.
Must have been a long day because she crashed hard when she got home. She had so much fun! She loved her 1st day.Troy is getting so big, he pulls himself up on everything.

Madera Caynon

Madera Caynon is about a 45 minute drive from our house. The temperature drops a good 20 degrees so you can escape the heat. Some friends and us took our families out for a hike. Here's our little man enjoying the ride. Here we are at the summit of our hiking trip. We stopped so the kids could play by the stream and get a snack.

Picnic At The Park

The girls wanted to have a picnic so, we made sandwiches and hopped on our bikes to find a nice grassy spot.
Madison and Brooklyn
Troy loves to ride bikes too, he's pretty happy as long as we are moving. The ride home must have been really exhausting for Brooklyn, she was out cold
