|I just loved this moment I caught as I walked in the door one night. Daddy and Ellie playing the piano together.|
Another one of our craft nights kits all ready for our September Craft Night event. We are making it a Parent/child night and this is the example one we made up. All the pieces will be pre-assembled except for the flower, roof trim and circular door trim. After they are painted we will attach the pieces with a nail gun . I modeled my bird house after a ceramic one that Shellie has. I just loved the paint job on it so much that I decided to recreate it in wood.
The garden has been doing very well with all the heat we've been having. The tomatoes have especially been doing very well. I get a bowl full ever couple days or so.
August is a busy month for us! We have two birthdays and our Anniversary this month! This year marks Dan and I's 10th wedding anniversary. I am so grateful this man came into my life! I couldn't have asked for a better companion! He is my best friend and I would be lost without him.
|We received some new bedding from my sister Kayla for an anniversary present. Thanks Kayla we haven't bought new bedding for ourselves for 10 years!|
Kiera (turned 9) and Ellie (turned 1) Shared a birthday party this year. I am sure as the girls get older they will prefer to have their OWN day to celebrate but for now sharing is just fine. Kiera requested a Mario Cart themed b-day cake. I had one difficult time locating figures to go on the cake but finally found some at Fred Myers. I think I spent twice as much on the figures as I did on the cake itself! Oh well. It sure turned out cute.
|Kiera got her very first sewing machine!|
|Kiera was very adamant all year about wanting roller blades and she finally got her wish! She gave them a go as soon as her party was over. And within two days she was a pro!|
We also went on a camping trip to Deception Pass with Bob and Shellie on our anniversary. Not what most couples view as a romantic getaway celebration but we had fun nonetheless. We went to Fort Casey and looked at all the batteries there.
|The garden has been loving the warm weather and I can also say I have too! Just check out these yummies!|
Ethan got a haircut like he does every month or so but he wanted to have "spike-able" hair in the front. I think we did a pretty good job for an amateur hairdresser.
We're in full swing of prepping for back to school here in the Glenn house. One of those necessities for the new school year is the purchase of new shoes for everyone. I loved that time of year of new clothes and shoes growing up and am happy my kids also enjoy it. But in this house we take it one step further...THIS is what happens every time we bring new shoes home. I love that my kids are growing up in a creative household :)
