Harley pics...

I tried to have a mini photo shoot with Harley in her dress from church yesterday and she wasn't cooperating. So I took some more of her tonight after she was bathed and had her jammies on. She was much happier tonight.

Cookie Bouquet Class

Holly and I decided to take a cookie decorating and bouquet class this last week at Michael's. It was really fun to go to, but I had to try several cookie recipes to find one I liked. Anyways, here are the results. I made some blowfish cookies and then some flowers cookies. The next morning Ava and I made the little heart and star cookies and dipped them in white chocolate ginache and oreos or sprinkles... yummy!

I have been really into making cupcakes and cakes lately with Holly! Here is a cake that we made for a baby shower for a girl at Holly's work. It turned out so cute and it tasted so yummy!

I made a cake this weekend for Beau's birthday! It was a volcano cake and it turned out awesome. Beau loved it, he was like a little kid!

And then for the big announcement... Nate started the Corrections Academy today! He will be in the academy for 8 weeks and we are so proud of him! I made him take a picture in his academy uniform.

California trip

We decided to take a last minute trip to California with Holly and Jon! It was really fun, we went to the beach 3 days and Sea World 1 day! Ava loved the beach, she hadn't really been before. Harley was perfect excpet for the long car rides, she hates her carseat :( It was a nice end to my maternity leave and summer. I actually have tan legs for the first time in like 5 years!

Summer pictures...

These are just some pictures from the summer.

Ava swam a lot, either in our backyard or at my parents house! We made ice cube tray water color paints, which Ava loved. So easy to do and free! Beau and Jessica were in town a lot this summer and Beau took ear impressions of Nate's ear for some plugs. He looks so professional! A playgroup that we are in took a tour of Anderson Dairy and Ava loved it, she was always running to the front of the tour so she could see and hear everything. She especially loved the cookies and cream ice cream we got after the tour. We also went to a baseball game, we went to one with firework's which Ava wasn't so fond of and Harley slept through :)
