ellie is 5!

Ellie had a Rainbow Birthday party! We had so much fun.
She loved having her friends over for her special day.
The kids loved getting to make their own bracelets.
I had a hard time finding a good rainbow cake design idea for Ellie. So this is what I came up with. Thank goodness Ellie loved it and she discovered Kiwi!

Halloweens Past....

To go through and find these pictures was so fun. 2007 when we lived in DC, Ellie was almost One in the pic above.
Above, Ethan was 2. That was during his serious bull riding phase.
Ahh yes,2008 now below was when we had moved to Colorado. Ethan(3) was Robin hood, and sometimes Peter Pan in that costume that I made. Ellie(1) was a butterfly. They were so cute!

The next year, 2009 Ellie below with Ethan trick or treating.
2010, They have changed so much since last year. I will post pics after tonight. Happy Halloween everyone.

Pumpkin Patch

Claire and I joined Ethan's class field trip to the Pumpkin Patch today. It was so fun.

They had hay mazes, Corn pits, hay rides. Pumpkins and all sorts of little games.

Oh and this was just me having fun with Ellie's hair.

SO hard to get a picture of Claire smiling with the 3 second delay on my phone camera. Don't you just love Ethan's tooth gap smile?

Beautiful Fall day

A beautiful Day in Colorado Springs

We took a little hike today. It was so nice to be out and see some of the changing leaves.

Ethan finally lost his front tooth tonight. It has been dangling for days. I hope the tooth Fairy remembers to visit tonight.

a few of them

I know its been quite a while. We have been very busy . Also, Claire dropped my camera in Sasha's water bowl. The camera still works, but takes very blurry pics. So ... needless to say I have missed many photo moments. But here a few taken with my phone or Richard's. Soon I will get Claire's Bday pics up.

Camp out with the Huxtables

Emily, Colin, Ethan and Ellie hanging out on the stream. They had such a blast playing together all weekend.

Can you see Ethan way up in there?

Below, our pop ups at the camp site.

Behind Ellie you can see "THE TREE" that the kids had there secret lair in.

Ethan spent most of the time in or around the freezing stream.

Claire did pretty well at her 2nd camp out.

Again the four amigos playing.

Ethan here is riding the sky ride.

Emily loved playing with Claire. She was a great help with Claire practicing her walking skills.

At the top of the sky ride. And below, the whole group up top.
