Things the Snow children said....

My kids have been cracking me up lately!!

We were talking with my Dad's cousin, who we haven't seen in years. He made the comment that the last time he saw Lily, she wasn't talking yet. Nate pipes in, "Those were the days!".

I was looking through grocery store ads, making noises with my mouth without even realizing I was doing it. Lily asked if I was making kissing sounds, and I said no. She said that she was talking with friends and they told her those were kissing sounds and Lily told them, "No, that's the noise my Mom makes when she is thinking".

I have started making chili in preparation for our friend's annual chili cook off. Lily told me that the secret to a winning chili is using lots of Johnny's Seasoning. Because Daddy used lots of Johnny's last year, and he won!

Corn Maze

It's tradition to go to the Corn Maze put on by the Lynden FFA. I have to say that it was a good one. It took us a half hour to get out the first time (12 minutes the second time, and we took different paths). We always get pictures of us trying to decide which way to go. As I looked at these pictures last night, I realized that Nate has grown a couple inches recently, and will be passing me up soon. I really hoped to have another year or two before I was looking up to him!! This last picture cracks me up. It shows their current personalities so clearly!

Fall Soccer

Lily had her first game of the season last weekend. Her team played hard and very well, but lost. Lily's a quick runner and getting more aggressive for the ball. It's fun to watch her play! She's got a great team and coach, the same group from Spring. I'm looking forward to seeing how these girls learn and grow!

Side note- When Lily picked out her jersey, she grabbed number 36. She yelled across the field, "Mom, how old are you?". I wasn't going to yell it back, so I just said, "Dad is 36, so you are good!".

Labor Day Weekend

We took a camping trip to Priest River in Idaho over Labor Day weekend. We had fun in the sun and enjoyed every minute away!


We celebrated August birthdays (on the last day of August) and finally got a picture with all 13 cousins. What a cute bunch!

Back to School

The kids are back to school! Lily started 3rd grade, and Nate is now a 6th grader in Middle School! I'm the bad Mommy that didn't get a picture of Nate on his first day of school. It was raining, we were late, and I just plain forgot! They are loving school and their classes. Nate is up and out the door early, but is home before Lily. I think I have had the hardest time adjusting to the new schedule!
