Painting pumpkins.

We painted our pumpkins. Here are their master pieces.

Fall Baking.

We made our pumpkin cup cakes and we made our leave and acorn cookies. I didn't get  many pictures because we were watching 2 others kids...a little  busy but we all had fun and we all enjoyed our treat.

Pumpkin Patch

We finally got to go to the pumpkin patch....after 3 times planning and it rained the kids were getting hopeless but we got to go on a day thye had off and Jason took the day off to go with us. They really enjoyed the snip line this year. We all went on all the fun slides and machines and enjoyed the nature walk and ended up the day picking out our pumpkins. A little cold but very fun family day. It is always such a joy to see our kids having such a good time.

Camping memories

 The kids in the lake with their new squirt guns.

 Daddy and Belle enjoying smores.
 Here we are in the middle of the lake the motor wouldn't  start so we all decided to jump off and and swim for a bit. The trolling motor got us back to shore.

 The kids enjoying the water. Isabelle is borrowing Gideon's goggles he got from aunt ton for his birthday while Gideon is working hard getting water and digging his tunnel on shore.
We going camping to the totten trail about 10 miles away a few times in the summer. Our favorite past time as a family.

Hot days.

We put a sprinkler under the trampoline. The kids just loved it. It was a complete joy to watch!!

Jason's 36th birthday.

 Jason wanted to go camping and fishing over his birthday.
 The kids and I gave him some money to go get a fishing reel he wanted
 We had friends come out for pizza and cake.
Since we were camping I got to buy him a nice cake. He had a good day didn't do as much fishing as he hoped for. His boat got brought into the shop the day before. He still enjoyed off shore fishing with the kids.

4th of July 2013

We had a cookout with our friends and did fireworks at their house and ended the night watching the big fireworks at the lake. It was a nice forth of July with all of us together.

Isabelle and Gideon in tee ball.

Gideon and Isabelle started playing tee ball this summer. It has been fun to watch them learn how to play and their difference on opinion in the game. Isabelle has liked it to interact with the girls but hasn't wanted to go because it is too hot. She said that next year we should just play it in our back yard. Gideon has enjoyed it and has caught on fast with it and he says he wants to play again next year.

Isabelle had her kindergarten open house/graduation. It has been a wonderful year for her she has grown so much and watching her get stronger in her confidence and her academics has been amazing. She has had a struggle this year but she sure has came along way. It has been hard to see her struggle but so very proud of all the effort she has put in. It took awhile for me to stop crying every time I brought her to school but it has been such a blessing to see her blossom and see more of her personality come out. We are so proud of you Izzy!!!

Gideon's preschool graduation.

Gideon had his preschool graduation. He is so excited to go to kindergarten. It was a hard adjustment for him this year watching Isabelle go to school everyday. We certainly enjoyed this year together though. It has been wonderful watching him grow so much this year. We are so proud of you Buddy!!!

Easter egg hunt.

The kids enjoyed their egg hunt. We all had a wonderful get away and enjoyed family time before Jason gets busy. We saw alot of beautiful country and had alot of laughs and enjoyed a wonderful Easter with each other even though we were away. As I reflect on Easter...This perfect love that God has for us that he sent his only begotten son. His son paid the ultimate prize to save my life so I may have eternal life with him. To God be the Glory for all he has done!!!

Easter 2013.

 We were in south Dakota over Easter. We went to a near by park to take pictures and have a Easter egg hunt.

It was a different Easter this year being away from home. We were able to enjoy an amazing church service there.
