The good, the bad, and the ugly

The Good...

I made one of Jake's favorite desserts for his going-away dinner at Outback with us, Spencer and his wife, Sara. Oliver has just discovered the perks of helping Mommy in the kitchen. He loves all things doughy.




The Bad...

You got that, Oliver is trying to be "bad" just like his Daddy on the long board. He's actually pretty skilled at getting on and off it. (Better than his Mommy, anyway, who last time she rode (3 years ago) broke her foot, no thanks to Christian for leading her right on to a busy street.)




The Ugly...

I failed to capture a picture of the ugliness, but I'll tell you. Our really good friends, the Haymore's, are moving and invited us to join in their garage sale. I drove up there, laid all my stuff out, then not even an hour later, it started to rain. I quickly packed my stuff back in to my car and drove home, determined to have another garage sale next weekend at our house. So, with Jake's recently vacated room, I put all my stuff in there. I know the room is in desperate need of some decor, but it's last on my list. On a side note, we were REALLY sad to say goodbye to Jake. After about 6 months here in Albuquerque, he made the trek back to Georgia to start school in the fall. We loved having him here and miss him a lot already.

I love the baking shots- nothing more fun than mixing up something gooey with a hungry kid or two on the counter.

I love his facial expression as he eats the dough. Looks like he was really pushing himself to the limits.

What a cute, cute boy. I love the picture with the cookie dough, kind of a milestone when they get old enough to sit there and help and taste. I bet you guys totally miss Jacob. How fun he got to be with your cute family though for awhile.

How fun to see Oliver enjoying himself so much both on the counter and the longboard. He's a lucky little boy!

I loved all the pictures, and especially the new one of all three of you in your Jewkes Reunion shirts. Beautiful!

Oliver looks so cute in those pictures of him eating the cake...Jake told us about that cake when he got here. I guess the brownies I made him didn't even compare to it. :) By the way- those chicken tacos were AMAZING- i will make them all the time now- so easy and cheap to do.
