"Yes I love Technology...."

Silly Kids!!! They Love their Angry Birds, but are trying out the Early Bird ap! William likes this one since the birds actually go the direction he's telling it to!

Grandma Spence

My Grandma Spence has moved in with my parents and has needed a little extra help. Her home just sold and we get to go over a couple times a week to help make her lunch, play games, and just talk to her. Kylie LOVES playing games with grandma. This day they were playing Memory and Bingo!

Missing Teeth

Our Baby girl has lost her SECOND tooth!!! She is so excited to finally have it out, and the tooth fairy didn't forget it the first night like she did the first one! (Bad tooth fairy!)
Here's her toothless grin!

Camping Trip

Damon has been asking us to go camping all summer and we just never planned a trip. So this Labor Day we decided we should go. The last time we went camping was with the Spence's and Damon was a baby. So we figured we should take the family and go one night and see if we could remember how! Funny how something fun can turn into frustration when things don't work out the way you expect. We couldn't find the top tarp of the tent and knew there was a good chance of rain... After Bob ran to the store to get a new tent, and came back with another camp chair, larger cooler, and paper plates we forgot, we found the top tarp underneath the set up tent!!!
William didn't understand that the fire is "hot" even though he can say it and knows what hot is, it was a struggle to keep him from getting too close. We really did have fun and the kids had a great time running around in the trees, playing in the Pineview Resevor, making smores and cooking Hot dogs, but of course we ended the night with some campfire cooked popcorn and 'Despicable Me' on the ipad! Spoiled kids! This technology family can only rough it so much!

Oh, and it didn't rain until we were ready to go, and the tent was still up! We were soaked and the wet tent got shoved in the car and set up in the back yard to dry. Wouldn't you know the kids wanted to sleep in it the next night in the back yard. Yep, and Mommy and Daddy forgot the sprinklers were going off that night!!!

Painted Front Room/Kitchen

We finally did it!!! The front room and kitchen area have been driving me crazy needing to be painted. The whole house was in it's original cream color EVERYWHERE and now we have painted every room since we've moved in! This was the last area and the most dreaded since the ceiling is 20 feet tall! It took us 2 weeks, but so worth it! I was going to tackle the whole project myself, but after getting about 13 feet up I was too scared... yes I admit it! I called to have someone finish the top half, but Bob just stepped in and did it! He did a great job too! (And he admits he was a little nervous as well!) Here's the kids helping and the before and after shots!

New Cousin Sadie

My baby brother Logan and his wife Camille had their first baby last night! Sweet Sadie arrived at 11:40pm weighing 6 lbs 3 oz. She has lots of dark hair, big lips and long feet (her Mom says).
The kids were fighting over holding her! What a fun addition to the Spence fam!
Congrats Logan and Camille!!

Here's the cute Diaper cake I made Camille for her babyshower:
