First day of school for the kids.  Justin is in fifth.  Emilee in Third.  Connor started kindergarten a week later.

Couldn't find Ethan one day.  Guess he found just the perfect spot to take his nap.

This is Chippy the elf.  We came home one day to find this little guy hiding.  Everyday he hid in a different spot.  He reported to Santa everyday if the kids were good or bad.

These pictures are so out of order.  Just trying to catch up.  This zoo trip was really fun.  It was the first time we went just us, no cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents.  It was really crazy how much quieter it was just us.

Look at my little pirates.  Ethan is throwing a fit; he wants to be Spiderman not a pirate.  I made him put the costume on for the picture.  Then he ran in and changed into Spiderman.

On August 14th we left for a week long camping trip.  It was called Sisters United.  We went with Grandma LeAnn.  It was an all girls camping trip.  Unless you were a boy under the age of fifteen.  Therefore all my children qualified.  Not daddy though he dropped us on Sunday, and was supposed to return the following Saturday.  Needless to say I was a little nervous about doing a camping trip without my husband.  The first day the bathroom door got locked from the inside.  Thank goodness for bobby pins.  Grandma arranged for each family to cook and clean each day.  On the days it was our family's turn she did all the cooking. I felt so pampered.  Daddy missed us so much he showed up on Wednesday.  He was the only husband who showed up early.  He loves us so much.  We were so happy to see him.

Emilee was baptized on August 13th 2011.  I can't believe my little girl is growing up so fast.  It was a nice day, we had a breakfast right after.
