Birthday Fun!

 My mom, Addison and my sister all have their Birthdays the first week of September.  My parents were in town so we had a combined Birthday party.  Thankfully they were ok it was a Hello Kitty theme party;)  My mom found this cute Hello Kitty cookie cutter with all the little pieces to decorate and Addison loved it!

The Birthday girls:)

Palm Beach

Jay asked me earlier this year if I wanted to go somewhere on vacation.  I told him anywhere warm and preferably with and beach and no!  He found us a place in Palm Beach and my parents were awesome to come and watch the kids.  We had such a great time relaxing and enjoying the sites.  I took a lot more pictures but they are somewhere lost on computer so when I find them I will add them in.

We went and toured the Flagler Museum and it was amazing.  I don't know how people afforded these kind of places.  The whole 3rd floor was just for the servants and it had 55 rooms.  Must be nice to have that kind of money.  If you ever go to Palm Beach this is a must see.

 This is the front room when you first walk in
 Room they listen to music
 This is the room where the ladies go after dinner while the men talk business.

 Mr. Flagler when he was young
Next stop was the Breakers hotel built by Flagler's wife

 Jay found this awesome Mexican restaurant where they made your guacamole right in front of you...yum!
I had a great time babe!  Can't wait for our next big trip:)

DC Temple

Well you never know what kind of picture you will get when you ask someone you don't know to take one for you.  I guess it's better then nothing;)  Jay and I got to go to the temple while my parents were in town to watch the kids.  It was so nice to escape all the craziness in the world for a couple of hours. We will miss coming here when we move.

1st day of Preschool and Kindergarden

I can't believe we will have 2 kids in school this year, where has the time gone?  They were so ready to go though so I had to suck it up.  It has been fun to hear about all the fun things they have learned and see all the cute crafts they bring home.  Addison is so excited to wear her backpack like her big brother.

 Talen and his buddy Owen ready to walk to the bus

 All ready for their 1st day!

 Addison was so excited to go see her classroom for the first time:)  She went right over to the table and started doing her 1st art project.  

 First day off the bus

 Phew!  I see a smile:)
 Couldn't wait to show me what he did on his first day:)
