Life is just plain crazy.

This picture is a pretty accurate snapshot of life right now. 
The kids are putting on a show for us (which happens a few hundred times a day).
It's loud, crazy and fun. 
That is life right now. 
loud. crazy. fun.
and busy

so so so so so so so busy!  
I pretty much live by my calendar (my husband keeps trying to convince me to go digital but I just can't do it) and I always feel like I'm forgetting something. 
We are still getting into the swing of new routines around here. 

Part of the busyness has been boutique season.
 I'm doing 3 boutiques in October/November which I'm really really excited about. 

Aaron is helping me build a new display (yay!) so I have been sanding and staining like a madwoman. 

And sewing and sewing and sewing. 
And sewing some more. 
This year I'm only selling hooded towels. 
I think it's going to be so much easier and better to stick with just one thing.
So if you need a hooded towel hit me up. 
I'll be at the Sugar Plum Festivals in Costa Mesa at the OC Fairgrounds in October and November and then at the Gifts and Goodies Boutique in Mission Viejo in late November.

And to get me through all that sewing I came up with the most delicious evening treat.
Cut a banana (or 4) into slices, top with a spoonful of cookie butter, dip in melted chocolate and then pop into the freezer until frozen. 
Oh. my. goodness. 
Just try them for yourself. 

And to add to the craziness/fun soccer season started. 
Kenzie has 4 friends on her team so she is having so much fun with them and of course scoring a million goals

 and Wes started his first year of soccer. 
He is soooooooo excited to finally be able to play. 
And for the record I am totally that soccer mom.
And my mom is me on steroids.
She's the one screaming "Steal the ball! Take it away! Kick it hard!" 
You get the picture.

The other day the kids were trying to convince me they could just drive themselves to school to drop Kenzie off. 
They just could not understand why I said no. 

Hudson turned 6 months! 
This picture cracks me up. 
It's me trying to take Hudson's 6 month pic with Maddie on top of me. I call Maddie and Wes flying squirrels. They are always jumping or climbing on me and Aaron. 
I'll post the pics I took probably sometime before Hudson is 1. 

This picture makes me smile too. 
I'm so blessed. 

Another great snapshot of life right now.  

This boy is in dress up 80% of the day. 

Hudson wearing Wesley's big boy undies. 
So silly.

She is the best, easiest, cutest 2 year old ever. 
Just pure joy and sunshine.

 He loves his jumper. 
Praise the Lord. 

And she loves Kindergarten. 
Like really really loves it.
She comes home every day saying, "Today was the best day ever."

What's life look like for you right now?
