Happy Halloween with a HOT AIR BALLOON RIDE!!!

Hayden the Army Soldier and

Elyza as Princess Rapunzel this year!

Happy Halloween!

First we went trick or treating at the APSU Ghost activity

then we went to our Hilldale church's Fall Festival

and enjoyed our very first Hot Air Balloon Ride!

How cool is that?!!

Hayden is SUPER excited to ride


Up, UP and AWAY!!!

Halloween this year was perfect!

The children trick or treated for gobs of candy

and they had fun dressing up as their characters and we had the chance to

ride the Hot Air Balloon (Thank-You Hilldale Baptist Church!)

Happy Halloween to You & Your

Ghouls and Goblins!

1st Season of Football comes to an end for Hayden~

Hayden just completed his 1st-ever season of tackle football

with the Mighty-Mite Colts team.

It was a learning experience, but Hayden hung in there & did

pretty good for never having played before.

He played the position 'Center' on Defense & Offense

(I'm very proud of you baby boy!)
Above pictured is his Colts team in blue~

Go #60!

During the game, the Mom (thats me below) giving Hayden some
tips and encouragement to use on the field~
(I love this pic that the photographer captured)

The boys listening to the coaches

My Favorite shot of the Football Season above!

Hayden you are one handsome football player and will always be
an MVP All-Star in my book.
I hope you enjoyed your first year as much as I enjoyed watching you!

Love you Babe~

What a Year so far in 2011~

I have not blogged since January~ I feel horrible letting this beautiful blog dedicated to my children just sit by the way side for soo long!

I have had some chapters close in this book called life and some happily open, so needless to say this year 2011 has been a transition.

I'm hoping to get back on track though with this Daisys and Diggers Blog since it does mean so much to me to leave this as a legacy to my children.

So here we go...beginning fresh...

beginning Anew...

just like the Phoenix~

1st Gingerbread House~ by Elyza Jane

They had Gingerbread houses on sale 75% off and
at a steal of $2 bucks I couldn't pass up getting one
to make with the kids!
I have never made a gingerbread house in my adult life
so I learned quickly this project was a sticky-messy one!
Elyza loved making the house though, decorating it with
all the colorful candy gumdrops and tiny jawbreakers.
She could have made a couple houses this day I believe,
she was really into eating the gumdrops while she decorated too!
(of course)

Her final masterpiece.
The Gingy-House by Miss Elyza Jane
Soo proud of her...
