Twinkie Weiner Sandwhiches

If any of you have ever watched the Movie UHF then you know what a Twinkie Weiner Sandwhich is. It's a twinkie sliced down the middle with a hotdog placed in it and topped off with spray cheese!
So Jeremy and his Brothers and his Dad finally decided to try them since I had leftover twinkies from Ashlyne's cake. I am actually surprised they haven't tried this earlier. Don't they look yummy!

And my five year old daughter has seen the dumb movie so many times that she told them that they forgot to dip them in milk before they ate them.

And they actually said they aren't so bad. No thanks, I'll pass!

The Princess turns 5!!!

On our last night in California we had a BBQ at Papa and Nana's house for Ashlyne and had a cake and presents. She got new pet shop stuff, a Hanna Montana Barbie, Money, a DS, Barbie toys and a pair of skates! And if your wondering the cake has two balerina slippers on top of it. It looks better from a top view, and it was 108 degrees that day so it was melting fast. But it tasted great!! Happy Birthday Princess. Mommy and Daddy LOVE you!!!

Roper Time!!!

We had two days straight of Roper family fun in California. On Friday we went to a spray park and had a picnic and then went back to Kent's house to play games, of course it was only us girls that played. Thanks Jacki for getting me addicted to Ticket to ride, I have to buy it now! And Kent made Moms pudding that none of us knew what he was talking about until we all tasted it and then it came back to us. I always thought that Mom made JELLO pudding from a box! Now I know why I can't get my pudding from a box to taste like my Moms. Thanks Kent.

On Saturday we went to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. It was a blast. Way too hot though. I am so glad Jeremy thought to bring a spray bottle, your so smart honey!

Happy 29th Jeremy

While in California we celebrated Jeremy's 29th Birthday. We went to Elk Grove Park and had his favorite desserts with friends. I made cheesecake. Mom made Banana Split Cake and Suzanne made Caramel Brownies. Thanks guys, it was yummy! And it was hot so needless to say when the sprinklers went on the kids went running!!! Tony didn't care for it too much so I styled his hair instead. Isn't he handsome! Happy Birthday Honey!

Aunt Sis and Uncle Craig's new pool

Craig and Suzanne got a pool as a wedding gift and the kids were the first to try it out. It was Arianne's first experience in a pool. She did great, but didn't stay in long. The other two stayed in until they were wrinkled. Thanks guys for the fun!

Fathers Day 2009

On Fathers Day Jeremy played around with the camera and was taking up close pictures of the kids. The one of Ashlyne is pretty funny! Their little personalities really shine through in their eyes!! Happy Fathers Day Honey. Thanks for the three bundles of joy!

Wildlife Safari Drive Thru Zoo

We always drive to California in the middle of the night and we always see the Drive thru zoo in Winston Oregon, but of course it's not open at 11pm. So anyway, we decided to drive during the day this time so we could stop and drive thru!!! I think all zoo's should be drive thru's!

This is the ostrich that we saw first. And that is our GPS in our car just to show you how close it got. Infact it even pecked at our driver side window and Jeremy wouldn't roll down the window, can you believe that! Sorry this is the only picture, but I have a lot to post and the rest of the pictures are just animals!!

Here you go.....

So I know I haven't been blogging for awhile. I guess I haven't been motivated, but people keep bugging me about it so here you go. Enjoy! And I promise I will be more bloggy in the future!
These are post all the way back from February to the present!

Green Eggs and Ham

The school had a thing for the first graders that they got to eat green eggs and ham for breakfast with their Moms and Dads. I got to go and be with Aiden. The principal dressed up as the Cat and the Hat and read the book to them and then they met up with us in the cafeteria and ate. After that we went back to their classrooms and read to the students. They also got all those hats to keep and take home and one of the local credit unions donated a new book to each student.

The Dentist

Sometimes Ashlyne really amazes me. I took her to the dentist in February for the first time and she wasn't scared nor nervous. She sat back and let them do their thing and even had a good time with "the sucky thing". It was such a relief. I was so expecting a screaming child running from the doors!

Bridal Shower

I got the opportunity to go to California in March for a few days with no husband or kids! I went to throw a shower with Heather for Suzanne. It was tons of fun. Thank you so much Honey for watching the kids and house for a couple days so I could get a break!

Our Itty Bitty Garden

So we decided to try out a garden. We have a four by four garden bed that they call square foot gardening. We planted stuff a little early but we do have some things growing so considering this is our first time I call it a success! Next year we won't be so anxious and will wait a little longer to put them outside!

Egg Coloring 2009

We had a very busy Saturday before Easter this year so we did a quick egg coloring before tucking kids into bed. We also got the opportunity to go to a friends house for lunch and an egg hunt and that is where the picture of Arianne with a flower on her head comes from. Thanks Karen!

Easter 2009

We had a Wonderful Easter. The kids woke up opened their goodies and had an Easter egg hunt. After we went to church we tried to take some pictures of all the kids together. This is my favorite holiday because of the colors and candy and cute little animals, but most of all because of the reminder of what Christ did for all of us!!


We had the opportunity to go to California for Suzanne and Craigs Wedding. We were able to spend time out at Grammy and Gramps and we had a Birthday party for Arianne and had a Bachlorette party for Suzanne and of course there was a good time had by all at the wedding!

Another Dance Recital

Ashlyne had another Dance Recital at which she did great at! I have a feeling we will have much more of these in the future, but I am totally okay with that. It is so great to see her in a place where she shines and is very comfortable with the atmosphere!

Mothers Day 2009

I woke up with an omelet and toast in bed and lots of homemade cards. Then I went to church with matching skirts with my daughters. I came home and got to take a long nap and then woke up got dinner made for me and then brownies and ice cream and we all watched Iron Man together. It was a wonderful day and am so grateful I get to be a Mother to 3 wonderful children!!!

Arianne is growing up

I have been bugged about not posting stuff too often so I thought I would post some pictures of Arianne since she is the one growing the fastest around here. She is walking all over the place and starting to say more and more words. It's hard to believe she'll be one next month, I can't believe how fast that went! The first picture is of her very first pony tail! I got bored one night! The second is of her walking around. The third is of her helping. I was loading the dishwasher the other night and she decided to climb on in and help. Anytime I have it open she comes as fast as she can so I have to be quick or sneaky! And the 4th picture I just added for cuteness. It's right after bathtime!!!
