If She Doesn't Scare You, No Evil Thing Will

Am I the only one who thinks this cake screams Cruella Devile??
I'm singing the song in my head this very minute...
I have a Halloween cake brewing in my brain.

Building with Dad

Have you ever tried to get into one of those "Build and Grow" workshops at Lowes?
Next to impossible!
Lucky for us, Jaxon is more than happy to settle for the next best thing -
Dad and Jaxon making the project at home.
Here he is proud as punch with his project complete.

Valentine's Day Loot

The amazing room mother for Jaxon's class made each one of the kids a Valentine's Monster.
Jaxon thought it was super cool.

Here is all of his Valentine's Loot.  Can you see that picture of the girl near the heart?
Well this is what was written on the back of that picture...

Yup, a little love note.
When I asked Jax about it, he said - "Yeah, she likes me."
What???  So I inquired further as to what that meant and if she was his girlfriend...
"Nope, girls still have cooties and stuff Mom."
That's my boy.

Kyah even did Valentines at daycare.
She was so excited - it's rough to be the little sister not in school, but daycare is really good about doing "school" type things and she loves it.
I just happened to get a treat for Valentines too, my most favorite flowers.
Thanks babe!

Future Rodeo Queen

We figured out this last summer that Kyah LOVES horses.
Colby traded a friend at work some Jazz tickets and he took the family horseback riding.

Kyah was in seventh heaven. 
It started with her being led around and then the walked the horse, but by the time we were finishing up
Kyah was riding all on her own - she didn't even want anyone to walk next to her.  She thought she was such a big girl - she loved every minute of it.

Everyone got in on the action.
Dad included - this may have been his second time on a horse in his life, but he did a great job.

I wish you could see Jax's face, but he has the death grip on me.
He really didn't want to ride, but he did it anyway - I was so proud of him for at least trying.
