Lindsay & Sammy were heading up to Chicago, and they spent the night with us! It was so fun watching our kiddos play together & getting to spend a very late night chatting with Lindsay!! Alex cried when they left, and I think he’s secretly trying to figure out how to get to Virginia for a visit to Sammy’s house…
Here are all 4 kiddos watching Angry Birds together, with Jensyn cuddled up to her new friend Lindsay

my silly kiddos LOVE their Wario (…and Luigi…and Mario…) costumes
My mom & her siblings
my niece Alyssa – hooray!
Alex is into self-portrait photography lately, and I get surprised by new photos all the time
Actually, ALL the children in our house (Grace included…) have been grabbing the camera lately. Loading pictures on to the computer is always interesting these days, as I just never know what I might find…
Jensyn was watching Dora as a treat during room time
random kid shots…
cousin Justin (from Wisconsin) was passing through town on his way home from Indianapolis, so he stopped by for dinner & an evening of playing Mario Kart with our kiddos

parade…the first time, in 9 years of marriage, that I have made it to our town’s parade! (Which means it’s also the first time our kids have been to our town’s parade…)
Nora’s cupcake-themed 1st birthday party
instead of cake, they did a ‘decorate your own cupcake’ station. FUN!
they also did a photo booth with fun props!
more random kid photography
the kids set themselves up on Jensyn’s bed and then asked me to take their picture
from the top of the bunk beds…oh, my, do they every have enough stuff out in the boys’ room?!?!

There you have it – the month of August in our house!
