He’s A Super Model….

You may or may not know I live in Kansas, and if you are follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter you will know HOW MUCH my family and I love Keim Bakery in Ottawa, Kansas.  Now we have proof…


The new Franklin County Visitors Guide came out last week and look who made the guide…


#6! Eating a Keim Bakery Cookie.


Here's a close up of the photo in the visitors guide.

AND… just so you know he's not just a cookie spokesperson for Keim bakery, he's also a customer… 😉


Here is #6 in his fire truck jammies hanging out at home eating a Keim Bakery cookie.



Garage Sale Day….

Today was Garage Sale day in Ottawa, Kansas…  Here's my day.. in pictures…

UM.. HELLO.. most awesome intern ever!

I love this house.. this picture doesn't do it justice…

Stuff.. laying on the ground…

This about the 5th garage sale we hit.  I was so depressed after all the duds we had seen.. I didn't really want to go up and look at what they had to offered, of course #1 will go look at ANYTHING just to check to see if there is anything good.  She's good to have around 🙂

My garage sale partner…

The number one thing I saw at every garage sale?  DVDs.

Pretty container garden

The Nazarene Church Youth Group had a sale.

I love old cookbooks.. I didn't buy any of these though…

I stepped into this VERY interesting man's garage and he immediately said, "You the eBay Queen?"  I reluctantly said, "Yes, kind of."  He said; I've got something to sell you!… and showed me this:

It's a Ice Fishing Rod and reel.  Pretty cool huh?

Lot's of interesting stuff..

Here's what I bought…

First Day of School Cookies

We have a local bakery in Ottawa that we love… and for the last couple of years I started buying the kids a first day of school cookie…

Keim bakery, ottawa, kansas, first day of school, cookies, apple cookies

Some cute cookies huh?

#5 loves his apple cookie

I'm not sure why #2 is making that face.

#4 and #3

#6 didn't wake up in time to get his picture with the group.. but he still likes a good cookie from Keim Bakery.

If you are ever in Ottawa Kansas.. stop by Keim Bakery… they have good cookies… and really good cheeseburgers.

Dance Recital..

It's been a very frustrating year for dance.  #3 LOVES to dance, and normally she is in 4-6 different dances, but this year the studio that "bought out" the studio, that "bought out" the studio she had danced at her entire life.. could not seem to get their act together. I could write so many things about how horrible this year was.. but that would take away from how beautiful #3 looked.  If one of your children want to dance, check out the studio.  If the owners worry more about their policies than the students.. take them somewhere else.  If the owner talks negative about a parent in front of the students.. take them somewhere else.  We will be going somewhere else next year for sure.

Here's previous years posts about dance:  Here Here Here Here and Here



Isn't she pretty?  (we think so)
