random stuff of September

Luke at the playground
Here are some random photos from September
the one photo I got of our Labor day kayaking
I made a deep dish pizza for our ward culture night.  I'm kicking myself for not getting a picture of the finished project complete with mini Chicago toothpick flags

 fun with a sprinkler in the backyard
I made a diaper cake for a baby shower gift.  Not bad for a quickly made first attempt

Catching up on September

Time is flying by! I've been back dating posts so there might be some you missed. I backdated a bunch to August at some point in September and I'm doing a bunch of September posts now. A lot of them have a lot of pictures, so for my family and friends who want to see pictures, take a look at the post titles on the sidebar and click through if the titles don't sound familiar.

Jaide got glasses! She was having a hard time seeing the board at school and we finally got her in for an eye exam. She likes wearing glasses so far. Luke came along with Bob and Jaide to pick up her glasses and Bob got some cute pictures of Luke trying on a pair of glasses.

Real Live Bowling

We took the kids bowling- in real life!  It is harder to actual bowl than it is to wii bowl.  I should have used the bumpers!  The girls did and they were happy to have beat me, but still a little sad that daddy won.  Luke was not super thrilled with bowling, mostly because we wouldn't let him run onto the bowling lanes.  He did enjoy the arcade area though.  Kiree ended up spending a lot of time in the arcade too.

It's hard to take good pictures of little guys

These pictures are from June.  I took Kiree and Luke to Target to get some photos taken.  I more recently got the CD of them when they had a special offer for them.  It's nearly impossible to share the photos on a blog if you don't have the CD.
Kiree liked this one
Luke wouldn't sit for his own pictures so they had to cut him out of other shots
They always make silly "enhancements" to try and get you to buy more expensive pictures.  Here are a couple of the better ones.

Luke did not want to sit with Kiree, or by himself. I had to hold his hands pretty much the whole time

We got some good pictures of Kiree and some kind of funny looking ones.

It's hard to take good pictures

We took some family pictures at Target at the end of August since they had a CD deal (that is the way I prefer to get pictures from there).  It is hard to get a good family picture.  Kiree has a sweater that matches Jaide's but she refused to wear it.  It was actually a pretty warm day.  I should have just brought it along for her to put on just for the pictures.  Oh well.  Luke really doesn't like taking pictures here although he was happier not having to sit just with Kiree (I'll post those older pics later).  These are several of the pictures from that day.

There was a lot of that face going on (both of those faces actually)

His hair just ended up that way with all our attempts to make him happy

Didn't get to many of her since she wasn't very cooperative.  We had more from last time any way.

I really like this one, maybe I should have had this one printed

We have a print of this one, the photographer thought it was the best one, but Kiree looks funny and Jaide's face is cut off.
