It snowed again last night! Somewhere around 6 inches or so...they say. The family enjoyed the snow...played, shoveled, and even swung. Good times! The hill that they are sliding down is in the middle of our cul-de-sac. The kids had so much fun. In fact, Austin is still out there now!

Nick and Kaden enjoying a beach-side pool...wierd, but awesome!
Sydney, dancing and happy at the Pirates of the Carribean Party
Sydney sad and crying about 5 minutes later (it was WAY past her bedtime)!
I have had a blog "hiccup" of sorts...I don't know if life is too busy, if I am too tired, or if I am just too boring...but blogging has seemed hard lately. So here I am, I am now here blogging. Yeah me. Pathetic, I know. At this moment, I can only think of Erin...I just don't know if i can be the true blogger that she is. But that's just me. I guess that I will do what I can...Right now, I am just doing baby steps back into it.

We adopted him from the shelter. He is actually a great cat. He is older, so he is quite mellow. He even lets the kids near by...sometimes. Kaden is the worst with him...but as Kaden says, "But Mom, I love him!" But the 2 best things about him: 1- He is quiet. 2-He knows how to use the litter box! Phew!

So the day before my 29th birthday, we celebrated...Ames style. What does that mean you ask? Well, we went to Hickory Park, of course! They sang and all. According to the waitress, Kaden was way more into their singing than I was. Not surprising!
Well, I am 29 now...and so lucky!

- Visited family in Wisconsin...where we did fireworks, boating, and playing!
- Took a family vacation (24 hours) to Mall of America and Nickolodeon Universe.
- Entertained lots of family and friends as they made their way through Iowa.
- And due to some maternal encouragement, I started my own business (as a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant)...and I actually am having fun with it!
- Built a swing and climbing spiderweb in our yard...or I should say that Nick (and Chip) did that, while I cheered them on!
Yeah, now that summer is over...I am excited for school to start. I am hoping that this will bring a lot of peace back into our lives. I can dream, can't I!!! (wink, wink)

With Grandpa Clyde and Grandma Pat, Kaden finally slept after an exciting day on the Mississippi River. Deanna and Sydney enjoy the day. Austin is so happy he didn't drown in the Mississippi River after falling off the raft with Mom!
