In September, the sunflowers were huge - th girls loved going out and taking pictures with them.  This first picture is the screen saver on my phone - they're so happy and it's very colorful.

We made glow-in-the-dark slime for the first time.

I made my first wedding cake and cupcakes.  The cake was small - I don't have big pans, only the ones I use for the girls' birthdays.  But they were happy with what I had.  

Oliver and Thea joined the family - brother and sister cats that Conor brought home with him from the wedding.

The girls love the kittens.  

Lily's school picture

Ceara had pictures done of her, Rylee and Carter.  They are amazing.

Stolen from Ceara's FB:  

Even 9 month olds like pizza!

Ready for school!

His very own fort.

September Universal Yums was Thailand - Rylee missed it.  

Lily got a bunch of musical instruments out to play with.  

Then fell asleep with her baby doll.

And Carter turned 9 months!

I got a clip on lens kit for my phone camera, so I was playing with it in the back yard with the girls.

Homecoming dance - doesn't he look thrilled?

Well, I've fallen behind.  Lots happened in August.  Anna (Lily's sister) got to come and spend the night with us.  The 3 girls got along wonderfully.  We had Carter for a little bit, as well. 

They took turns riding the pink tractor, and everyone agreed to let Anna ride first because she was the guest. 

We set up a little shade tent that we got for when we go to sporting events.

Two played while one was riding the tractor.

That face.  <3 p="">

We also had the fallen tree that was fun for them to walk like a balance beam.

And the back of the truck for the to get into and play.

We went for snacks and crafts after they got a bit hungry.

Playdoh and fruit.  What else could a girl want?

All dressed, packed and ready to go play at Mimi's for a while.

Conor got a stylin' new outfit - getting ready for back to school.  

Pops and Carter had some fun bouncing on an exercise ball.

Lily always loves playing with and feeding Carter.

Checking out the morning glories they planted to see how they were growing.

Lily's first day of school.

Rylee's sassy pose.

Carter chillin.  

Conor with his first trip to an actual barber - who used a straight razor to do a "hard part" in his hair. 

Acting goofy for the 1st day of School picture.  Sophomore year!

Soccer.  Conor's favorite sport to play.

Rylee's first day of school.

Ahh the summer days of playing in the yard.

They decided to build a cat trap out of the logs.

Bains fell for it!  Trapped!

Our Universal Yums box for August was from the UK.

The treats were liked, but not the chips!

Flower girls :)

The boy hit the 8 month mark.

Lily without Rylee one weekend.

She enjoys looking for things with binoculars.

Summer break from school came to an end.
