Fair, Pumpkin Patch & a sad attempt to get a cute picture.

Here are some more fun pics.

Jessica here's the unfortunate best shot I got of all
three girls in the outfits. They looked adorable though.
I'm going to try again.

I'm back!!!

Yea!!!! I got my new camera cord in the mail today and guess what it worked!!! I was so excited b/c I thought it might not solve our problem. So I have a lot of new pictures to post. Most likely I'll just post a few at a time so I can tell you a little about them too.

Here are my little princesses at the pumpkin
patch last weekend for a birthday party.
They have on their costumes over their clothes.

This was the first evening that it was cool here in TX
so the girls and I put on long sleeves and played on the swing set.
Here's a cute pic of all 3 swinging.

This is my masterpiece. It took me like 3 hours to carve
these pumpkins. It was my first time to carve a pumpkin
without actually cutting holes. If you can't tell it is
Cinderella & Aurora (Sleeping Beauty).

Horse Ride

Several weekends ago we went to a place called Christ's Haven. It is such a neat place. It is a home for kids without a home. They have several houses on the campus and have the kids in houses according to age and gender. Dustin has a couple of students from school who live here. They had an open house and invited teachers of the students and other people in the community. It was a fun morning for us. They have horses and a stable. The girls were able to ride on a horse together. They looked so cute. I was so sad that I didn't have my camera. Dustin took a pic with his camera phone. The quality isn't great, but I still wanted to share it with everyone. They're getting so big. I have been interested in foster care for a long time and I thought this was an amazing place helping these kids. I hope that when the girls grow up that we might be able to be foster parents. I'll probably have to talk Dustin into it, but I think it would be such a neat ministry opportunity.

Random Pictures

Since I haven't been able to post pictures recently I have several random pictures.

Here's a pic before our date night recently.

The "babies" that the girls are no longer sleeping with.

Well the camera cord is still messed up and I'm going to Walmart tomorrow to get the pictures on a disk. I have lots of pics to post, but today I have a question I would like to ask those of you who are parents of little ones. Cameron & Taylor will be 4 in Nov. We're typically a very scheduled family. Now that the girlies are getting a little older not quite as strict, although we're buckling down on Peyton now. We have breakfast daily around 8, then snack around 10-10:30, lunch @ noon, snack around 3 and dinner between 5:30-6. Anyways my question is about snacks. Our girls on most days have a mid morning snack & a mid afternoon snack. I'm wondering if we need to cut out a snack. It seems like most things you read say that you should eat less and more often. So should we stick with snacks or should we cut out a snack? I'm curious to know what other people are doing.
