Renewal Cake

Eddie's mom and dad (my aunt and uncle) are having their vow renewal today. I volunteered to make one of the cakes for it (I am notorious for volunteering to do extra things then stressing about it, but that's a whole other post!). Here's how the cake turned out. Not perfect (I wanted to use fondit but they wouldn't let me!) , but still pretty!

Gold Rush Days

Pookie Bear's family reunion was Labor Day weekend in Bellville, Ohio. It took place at the annual Gold Rush Days Festival on a River. We weren't sure what to expect, but everyone had a great time. Here's a few pictures of our fun day there!

Pookie's OLD-er Sister Starting to Dig (note PB older brother in the background - Pookie wants everyone to notice how gray and old he looks compared to PB and they are 18 months apart!)

PB OLD-er brother showing the kids how to pan for gold

Kids trying out their new panning skills

Even PB tried his hand at it

(but it didn't last long because ones feet tend to go to sleep when you are in this position for an extended amount of time - Just Sayin!)

Somewhere in this picture is Tootie's fleck of gold

(according to Uncle Don she only needs 999 more flecks to make an ounce - Seriously - who has the time for all that work!)

Soon the kids were bored and in the water (the seriously gross water!) Except Twirlgirl - she is way too mature to go in there! (plus she was not about to have wet underwear on for the rest of the day!)

Next is face painting (which lasted a total of 5 minutes because they jumped back into the water!)

It was a great day but it left one major question that still needs answered!

Is that the same forehead?

(Pookie wants everyone to note once more that he is 18 months younger than his brother and he thinks he looks fabulous for 40-almost 41)

Mommy's Babies

I have been going through pictures on our computer looking for things to post from the summer and realized there were a lot of interesting pictures of our kids. I am now wondering if we have any normal pictures to post! So, I thought I would share the best of the best with everyone!

But seriously, we are getting ready to post some updates now that we have another computer and all our pictures downloaded! Stay tuned!!!!
