Where did it go?

It seems as though the year has just flown by. That it was only yesterday we were bringing Logan home but now he is a little over five months old and Halloween is right around the corner. Unfortunately, this past weekend was no exception and before I knew it, I was setting out the kids' clothes for Monday morning, I was writing a check for day care and counting the days until the Friday. Even though it went by rather quickly we packed it as full as possible with fun family activities. On Saturday Grandma Sara and Papa Tom came up for a quick visit, well more like we needed a babysitter and this mommy just isn't ready to hand over Logan to just anyone. And once again, my mom and dad came to the rescue. They arrived just as Kaden was getting up from his nap and then off to the park they went. Once they returned we piled up some leaves and we jumped on in.

While my mom and dad held down the fort with the kids, Justin and I attended the JPII annual school auction. We were hoping for some good deals but never thought we would walk away with what we did-a week long trip to St. Marteen. A 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo with an eat-in kitchen right smack dab on the beach. The only problem, it is 10 months away!  None-the-less, we are going. With the kids. With Adam, Becky and Colton. With Janet. A South Family vacation! Can't wait to see the expressions on the kids face when they feel the sand between their toes.

We also managed to check off a Fall Bucket List 2011 to do-make fall cookies. A colleague of mine was able to find her favorite sugar cookie recipe and was kind enough to share it with me. We rolled the dough. We cut the cookies. Baked them and once they cooled we iced them. For some reason, Kaden wasn't all that hungry when it came time for dinner that night. Guess he filled up on the cookie dough.

On a separate note. We all know that I am not the cook/chef in this family and to prove this point I figured I would show off my skills…

And in case you didn't count them-FOUR, four pieces of burnt toast. I can understand two but FOUR, really...
