Blanky and bunny...

For a trip away, Ella can't leave blanky or bunny behind!
The blanky was given to Taylor before she was born for my baby shower, and has become Ella's favorite! The bunny was a gift before Ella was born from Great Gramps and Ms. Mary and has been a favorite from the start!

When seat belts attack...

Poor Jack was attacked by his seat belt yesterday!  Not too bad a black eye, but it got a nice hold of him, poor guy!

Fire Safety Week!

Jack is learning all about fire safety at preschool! So far they have made a bean filled smoke detector out of plates, and this cute little hat, he made the spots on the dog ears with his finger prints, and is quite proud of it!

Super Artist!

Ella came home with this beautiful drawing today, and I was trying to read what the shirt said on her little person, well it said Champion Talker, backwards, because that is the way she saw it when she looked down at the shirt she was wearing to spell it! LOVE IT!

First field trip of the year!!!

Jack's preschool class headed out to the apple farm for the first field trip of the year! Lucky Ella got to go as well, and just missed the 1st hour of school. Loads of fun stuff, starting with a hayride, then learning about how apples grow (should I mention the first apple picked that day was by Jack? The first one low enough for him to reach, while they were supposed to be learning about apples? Oh well, someone's kid had to do it, my as well have been mine!), then learning how cider was made, then a trip through the maze, a little playtime, a class photo, cider and doughnuts, and a fun craft to do! What a busy day! We followed it up with a playdate at McD's!

Look who's drivin...

Watch out Michigan! Taylor got her certificate for passing her driver's test today! She can officially head to Secretary of State and wait a few hours (hey Michigan is known for long lines at the DMV) and get her real license! There are a few restrictions though, like no driving between midnight and 5 am til she turns 17!

Back to school!

THis is another, just so I don't forget!
Jack was very excited, very very excited (did I mention very excited?) for school to come this year. Every day asking how many more days, and getting angry with me when it seemed like too much! Fast forward to night before school, where I tell Ella and Jack that the first number on the alarm clock HAS to be a 7 before they get up, and put them to bed around 7:15 pm. Jack comes down at 7:47 pm, yes, that night still, and tells me there is a 7 on Ella's alarm clock and he is ready to go to school. OH BOY! I don't even think he fell asleep cause I could hear a lot of movement up there! Silly boy!
Yes Ella's back pack does appear to be bigger then she is here, but it is only boxes of tissues in there, I swear! She wasn't going to tip over from the weight of her backpack!
Here are 3 out of 4 of the kids ready to go to school!

I missed family blogging!

My blog was originally for my family life, my original Chomas Creations! I used to go back and have my journaling already done for me, silly stories about the kids, watching them grow, things like that. Then scrapbooking and Chomas Creations took over! So here it is, the next blog to take over my family life!
Ella is officially 6! When did that happen? Well September 12th of course!
I can't believe it though. For her birthday we had Gramma Aggie and Grampa Al over, had a yummy BBQ, opened presents, ate cake and ice cream, another busy day! Here is my big 6 year old!
