Happy Birthday, Khara...and other July happenings!!

I'm finally getting around to posting.....whew, this summer is flying!!!

With 4 active children that go through lots of laundry, can rearrange the house pretty quickly, and want to be fed at least 3 times a day, library story-times, playing outside, a garden that is doing great, wonderful fresh produce (my parents and I put up 30 dozen ears of corn yesterday), blogging is taking a back seat. School starts one month from today, I'm hoping life will slow down just a little when school begins.

A few pictures from the past few weeks:

On July 6th, Khara turned the big 8 !! Aaron and Brenda and Jeff and Vicki were out at my parents over July 4th weekend so they were able to be here for her birthday on Sunday, the 6th.

A quick "sibling shot" after church.

Cute little Emme Grace Englund.

Brenda with drool marks from Karson. (Yep, that's Aaron in the background probably lighting some type of firecracker :-)

Kaden wanted some construction paper the other day. It kept both of them busy for at least 15 minutes (hey, that's a long time for a 4-month old and 3-year old). Kaden was cuttin' and Karson was chewin'. :-)

My little man that is growing wwaaaayyy to fast-- 5 months old yesterday!!

Enjoyed your update! I know what you mean about the summer flying by. Mollie starts Kindergarten in about a month and that's so hard to believe. I would love some of that corn right about now. :-) Enjoyed all the pictures!

I love your flip-flop cake. What a great idea! :-) Did you graduate in 98' too? Just got to thinkin' we should be having a reunion his year, but haven't heard anything about it.

Deanna- Yes, I did graduate in '98! I've been wondering about a reunion too. Homecoming weekend, Saturday sometime?? It would be great to see everyone again!!

Happy birthday to Khara! Lauren turns 8 tomorrow :( She can't wait, but it kills to think that she's halfway to 16! WHERE does the time go?
Also, the corn freezing sounds good! That's always so yummy!
