So cute, I think I may die

We took Lillian to Avila Valley Barn and practically forced her to wear this pea outfit. She hated it, but she was so cute, I didn't care.

Millions of Peaches

I bought a lug (25 lbs) of peaches from the Avila Valley Barn and Darlene and I canned them last Monday. I haven't opened any jars yet, so I really don't know how they taste, but they look pretty. No offence to Darlene, but it was sort of the blind leading the blind throughout this project. I had gotten instructions from Mom, but we still were a little shady on a few points. I'll let you know. Posted by Picasa

Tonya's visit

Courtney had a gymnastics meet here (they live in Frenso), so they came to stay for the weekend. Rob and her two older boys stayed home.

So, the whole weekend they were here, Aiden and Maddy, the two younger ones (aside from Lillian) were fighting over Lillian's little chair. (The one that she was sitting in in her moose pictures.) Then, after Aiden ate something sticky or messy, cheetos maybe, Tyler gave him a wet paper towel to clean his hands. Enter his new favorite toy. He wanted to wipe it on his face and on his hands and he cried when Tyler threw it away, so he had to get him a fresh one.

She hates taking baths.

Tonya gave us her new crib because, as Maddy told me numerous times, Aiden is now big enough to sleep in a big-boy bed.

I like Tyler's hair.

A while ago, Anne would do this thing where she would snort in your ear, or smell vigorously (I'm not quite sure which one she was going for) but Lillian loves it. She smiles every time, even if she's in the middle of crying. Posted by Picasa

Tyler rafting

Tyler went rafting on Labor Day weekend on the North Fork of the American River. In the raft (clockwise) is Tyler on the left, then Liz, Blake, Patrick, and Ken. Lillian isn't much of a white water sort of girl, so we didn't go.

Hitting a rapid.

My husband was the only one that didn't fall out of the raft.

When I was little, I only had one Barbie (that I remember), so I guess I'm making up for it by dressing up Lillian in all sorts of silly outfits. This one was a gift from Vivian.

It even has little moose on the feet.

And look how good she's getting with her head! She so cute.
