Miscellaneous Monday

Man, I meant to post this last week! Too bad I didn't, because there is still so much I have missed. Still to come: demolition derby, Tyler's 9th birthday and Jumpin' Jacks! :)

In the meantime, enjoy the miscellaneousness of these pics ...

First my pretty princess. Just had to show off how cute she looks in the dress we got at a neighbor's yard sale for $1. How can you tell her no when it's only $1?

(I love that you can see her face clearly but can obviously tell the dress is swooshing. She LOVES it! :)

And although I haven't checked on our garden for a week now (oops), I remember that we are getting some good stuff out of it:

These cherry tomatoes are so yummy! (And this from a non-tomato fan!) We also have tomatoes (for salsa! :), zucchini and one lone pod of peas. There is other stuff still growing (I picked one carrot and it's so small it looked like a root), but I guess we'll see how it all ends up. We haven't shown much care for it, but fortunately with Paul installing the sprinklers to it we didn't have to give it too much care.

And here are the kids on their first days of school:

So, now other miscellaneous cute Austin stuff. When he's in the bathtub, Shayla loves to find the letter A and put it on his tummy. I think we should call him Big A:

We have just started feeding him some solids since he seems a little hungry. My kids all did this right at 5 months, and he hit 5 months last week. This normally all-smiles baby wasn't sure what to think of it. He didn't cry, but he sure did give some dirty looks:

Here's the cute sun hat I sewed him:

And when that's not handy, I guess he can borrow Tyler's favorite pig, Silky:

My boys love to tote Austin around and just have him nearby to watch them play. He is especially loved by Zachary. One day I couldn't find him, and when I questioned the boys they said, "Oh, yeah! We left him in Tyler's room!" Well, one day I came into the family room to find this:

He doesn't look so comfortable, but he's sure not going to fall out of the chair. Brothers! :)

I think Shayla's hair is so cute. Does she love it? The dress is adorable as well. I still need to post pictures from London's first day. Did Shayla just want to get in on the action, or was it her first day of pre-school as well. That is an awesome club house your dad built. Have fun painting it.

Yes, Shayla is starting a neighborhood pre-school. I teach it every five weeks. She is LOVING it being with five friends (all girls) in her class ...

Just when I think Gavin is starting to catch up with Austin, Austin is on to bigger and better things--like solids! No way!
