Photo Journaling to Catch Up.

Sugar Pie had her eye exam this week. We discovered she's a little near sighted and has a bit of a lazy left
eye so we've been trying out some frames. I'm thinking these ones but the ones below are cute too.
She's so cute!
Playing with Play Doe, one of their favorite things to do!

Another favorite hobby! They could do puzzles for hours! We had company over who helped them out with some of these ones. I wish I'd have taken a shot of all f them doing it. Not sure what I was thinking.
This came in the mail this week! Thank you 3D's!! Or better yet 4D's! Hunny Bunch was pretty pumped that they were for him! Seems to him like everything in the house belongs to Sugar Pie so anything he gets
he likes to keep pointing at it then him as if to say "Is it really for me!" Thank you!!! Your sooo sweet!
Sugar Pie was equally excited to see her little treats from the 4D family. She remembered exactly who you were when I told her who it came from! Thank you Doris!!
Sleepover with Miss K!! My grandbutton! Look at how much she's grown! I CAN'T BELIEVE SHE'LL BE 3 IN OCTOBER ALREADY. makes me sad actually. :o(. She is pure sweetness and loves her aunty and uncle VERY much.
YUM! My sissy and I picked these and I made 3-4 batches of Raspberry freezer jam. I wanted lots because it's one of the most requested fillings for my cakes! and ohhhh so delish!

I had a bumper crop of cherries this year! I made 3 pies, and 4 cherry crisps and still gave some cherries away.
Hunny Bunch loves picking seeded dandelions and blowing the seeds off. He's grown almost 1/2 an inch since being home 6 weeks ago already. His English is coming along great. He's learning so fast! There isn't too much he doesn't miss and he can help us understand what he wants by motioning with his hands or taking us to where the item is he wants or just saying a couple of key words. He's saying a few sentences such as "There ya go", "Wo lub you Mommy/Daddy", "Need to Pee", "Drive truck", "I hungry Mommy","Gonna see Jai Jai?", "Go to store?", "My turn?", and he can say grace 100% by himself now too! He knows his alphabet and can count to 10 without a blink! It helps that he has such a bright big sister!
The neighbors kids came over to play? Whew thank goodness they're on that side of the fence. On the other side of our yard we have pony's. They've come threw the fence a couple of times already...ruined my garden. :o(..thankfully my little ones were indoors..I don't know how to shooo a calf or pony off my yard....they sure are cute, but only on their own side of the fence.
Snack time fun....decorating their own cupcakes.
This was Hunny Bunch's first cupcake! He enjoyed decorating it his big boy self! See the scar on the temple of his left eye? It's in the shape of a heart!...Not sure what it's from, I wondered if it was maybe 2 chicken pox that left one scar. He has a nasty scar on his little wrist also. I asked our guide to ask him about it and he told her it was burnt. :o(.
This was made for a lady's little 1 year old daughter. It was to be used in a cake smash photo shoot but the photographer had to cancel on her session and rebook it for a couple of days later. The lady didn't know how to store it. She put it in the fridge and the fondant started to collect condensation. She emailed me and asked if it was the right thing to do and I told her to take it out right away but the damage was already done. :o(. She asked me if I could make another one on short notice and I came to the rescue.  
The pastel colors are a bit lighter, the ribbon a little different and this time I put tiny little dots between the flowers. Looking forward to seeing the pictures when she gets them. Nice thing for her was the photographer agreed to cover the cost of the second cake for her.
Sugar and Hunny Coloring. Another favorite past time.
Running at Friendship Park.

I had a Mommy/Daughter date a couple of weeks ago with my big baby girl. It was nice to spend some time with her, seems like forever ago since we had a chance to just hang out.
 She's recovering right now from surgery on her leg.  few days after our outing a cyst formed on the back of her upper leg that got infected and burst. She went to her family Dr. Monday and he recommended her to the surgeon right away and they took her right in. Praying for a quick recovery!

Our children :o)
Today we were in town and I had to stop at someones house to quickly run in and grab something. I wasn't gone 2 minutes and Sugar Pie pulled her tooth out! No trauma, drama or tears! Yay! She was so excited! So under the pillow it went! The tooth fairy left a trail of pixy dust on her bedroom floor when she put the money under Sugar's pillow!
Now won't she be irresistible with glasses and a missing tooth!

You have lots of news and some is so similar to ours... Our AA wears glasses (pink framed that see selected) and we are now looking for a brown or black frame - She looks great in the ones you picked out. We also recently were at a friends were AA was on a trampoline for the first time and loved it! Glad all is well in your household!
