Final cheer competition

This weekend was Camdyn's last cheer competition. She had had so much fun doing cheer. It's been great to see her enjoy something and get to be pretty good at it! Here are a few pictures from the weekend.

The Last Few Weeks

We have been super busy the last few weeks at our house and here are the pictures to prove it!
Camdyn has started doing competitive cheerleading and she has had things with that the last few weekends. Here she is at the Parent Spectacular (she was so excited she got to wear lipstick!).
Silas had to show during the spectacular as well. He does look pretty cute!
This picture is really dark but if you look closely you can see her doing her routine! She loves it!
We have also had Halloween happen around here (duh!). They both chose their own costumes: Silas wanted to be a KState football player and Camdyn a cheerleader. How fitting!
A picture of me and my two kiddos! Love these guys!
This past weekend Camdyn had her first cheer competition and she loved it! You can see her in the back of left of her group in this picture.
This picture she is the one being stood on right there...not my favorite part of the routine, hopefully it will be changed!
I'll leave you with a picture of our very excited cheerleader and proud daddy! Can't wait for the next competition!

Red Barn Farm

Wednesday I got to go with Silas on his first field trip with his school. We had so much fun at Red Barn Farm! I tried to take lots of good pictures, but everybody was so busy to stop and look at the camera!
Waiting in line for the hayride. This is Silas' friend, Cali. They get a long great and have so much fun together (and Silas says he's going to marry her when he gets big :o) )!
Looking in at the geese. They even got to touch it's feathers and feet!
We saw lots of chickens and they got to touch the baby chick's feathers too! Silas wasn't sure about it at first but loved it!
Look at this lucky boy surrounded by all the girls! :o) He'll love it if that keeps up in 10 years or so! It was a great day, but we were all exhausted at the end of it!

New Table (Sort of)

We got a new dining room table, sort of. When we moved from Topeka to KC we sold our large table b/c it wasn't going to fit in our apartment. We bought a small 4 person table for that place. We have now moved into a bigger house and our small table was just too small. My first thought was, of course, to buy a bigger table. Matt told me that he was going to make our current table bigger. I was not a big fan of this idea at all, but I am now eating my words!
Here is what our table looked like before. It was small, that's for sure.
He built out the sides and put a new top on it. I still wasn't sure about it at this point. We painted the black line around it b/c we had to fill screw holes and the stain wouldn't cover that. I now like the painted line, I think it gives it a little something!
We stained it a color that matched the rest of the wood in the house. We already had 4 chairs with wood seats, so we matched it to that. I like the contrast of the black with the stain.
Here is the table all stained and just waiting for the clear coats. I was really starting to eat my words at this point!
This is the finished product (pretty much), we just need to add one more coat of the clear stuff. I think we did a pretty good job of making it match! We also need to get some more seats since we only have 4. I am thinking about getting a bench as well as 2 chairs that are different from the others just to make it more interesting! I am so happy Matt did this and I really do like it!
