Yeah, Another Month

I've written this post in my head so many times that I don't even know what really happened. Every time I sit down to actually post something interferes. Blissfully, Jake took Cooper and Luke to Bass Pro Shops and I have a few hours of peace. I'm so excited!

First of all,

Our big boy finally turned 3!! I feel like I've been a mom so much longer than 3 years. Dagmar (my SIL) said, it just seems wrong that your oldest is only turning 3 when you have 3 kids, no twins. I couldn't agree more.

The day was all about space ships! Check out this cool cake:
We had a great day! Thanks to all who came and pizzaed and partied with us! You guys rock!

Okay, here are some of our Crafties for the last couple of weeks.

V is for Volcano!
We did some homemade volcanoes and watched videos on the computer. It was really fun!

Book project based on "Leaf Man" by Lois Elhert. This is a really neat book. Very creative and Cooper loved it! The book is a story where the pictures are leaves made into animal shapes. It was so clever! We went out and collected leaves and made a leaf man, a turtle, and a butterfly.

Another really cool book project. We read "Arnie the Doughnut" about this doughnut that is actually alive and doesn't want to be eaten. Kind of cheesy but cute, I guess. Here's the good part--homemade donuts! We made these out of buttermilk biscuits. They were so, so easy and fun. If you want the recipe go here.

Even Ethan loved the donuts! I loved them a little too much and finally ended up throwing them out to get rid of the temptation!

U is for Umbrella! Which is totally appropriate for all of the rain we've been getting.

Wow, where do I even begin? Your book projects & letter projects look so cute and fun, as usual. I really wish I had your energy. The doughnuts look yummy! And, Cooper's cake is SO DANG CUTE!! It looks perfect. I bet he loved it. And, since when does Ethan have so much hair?? :) So cute!

Wow. I am moving by you & coming to your "pre-school" with or without my kids!! You really ARE AMAZING!!

Size 8? You go girl! I've lost 11.5 lbs on a cleanse & am still working on size 8!

Now that Luke is finally getting to an age where he recognizes letters, we're going to have to copy some of your tricks. . . .

Don't really know where you find the time to do all this stuff and decorate for Halloween!! Emily - -How do you do it?
