Aiden turns 11

In honor of our favorite 11 year old, here are 11 of my favorite things about Aiden
1. He is kind
2. He is all about being fair
3. He loves building things
4. He loves origami
5. He spent most of the summer watching Steve Spangler science projects
6. He is an awesome fan (have you seen him cheer for a team or performance? Awsome!)
7. Even though he DID NOT want to get a dog he's been really good about dealing with it
8. He is a great student (his teachers love him)
9. He is very smart
10. He loves to be involved
11. He always tries his best!

This was my first attempt at using fondant.  There is definitely room for improvement, but not to shabby for a first try:)
Now that he is 11 he is officially a Boy Scout.  Even better, Chris is one of the leaders!

Somebody loves us, and cookie Friday

As a "good job for making it through the first week of school" I decided to start a cookie Friday tradition.  Pretty much exactly what it sounds like...we have cookies on Fridays:)  It's been a fun tradition so far and gives me a reason to try all those Pinterest recipes I have.  Also we got a sweet surprise from our super special cousins!
Don't let Kaylee's face fool you, she's pretty much loving this new tradition
