We went to Oktoberfest for the first time last weekend.  We always enjoy experiencing something new together as a family.  We didn't get to see as much dancing or music as I would have liked, but we enjoyed plenty of fried foods.

First day of school...ever! 2013


Ellie wanted in on the first day of school picture action too.


I am so excited about making lunches.  It is basically the only way I can connect with Maddie during her day, by packing her cute lunches, leaving her a note or packing her favorite foods to let her know I love her and care about her.  These containers are amazing.  No baggies to deal with, just three cute little compartments to fill. 



Best friends in class together!
