Ten Things to Smile About This Month

Did you know September is almost over?  My calendar does but the weather here sure seems to have forgotten!  We are going to still have highs of 99 this week- seriously??  All kinds of wrong.  Needless to say the weather is not going to make my list this month- but let's see what things did.

Last Tuesday Every Month

Ten Things to Smile about is my monthly meme (last Tuesday of every month) where I look back and find ten things that made me smile, everything from a pretty picture to a child scoring a goal- whatever it may be that made you smile.   So grab the button (just copy all of the code in the box and paste it into your post) and join me for

Ten Things to Smile About in September

1. Story time and a tumbling class with Ryder
showing me his stamp he gets at the end of tumbling class
2. My new toy- crazy light
3. Kids did great in the church Primary program (more on Thursday)

4. Listening to Ryder talk all about "cornados" -i.e. tornados from the car crash game

5. Craft nights with friends where I made this cute sign (Instructions here)

6. Meeting my cousin's new baby and taking his pictures
This little guy is almost 5 weeks and was awake the whole time
7. Date night with Eric- the new Bourne movie and ice-cream! 

8. Craziest clouds I have ever seen! 
(Technically I saw these last day of August but missed last month's list)

9. This smile- which may have come because he was laughing as he kept spinning trying to make me get a picture of his butt

10. Saturday morning soccer games- even if it is really hot still

What made you smile this month? 

Linky will be open for two weeks, so plenty of time to link up.

Since it is Tuesday I am linking up with some other great Tuesday meme's.  IA and Shawn's Talk to Us Tuesday and Stacy Uncorked's Random Tuesday

  4. You have the cutest kids!

    What a sweet little guy you got to photograph! We are getting newborn pics of the new baby (first time we've done newborn pics). I can't wait! Technically I could probably do them, but I don't want to. ;-)

    Congrats on the new iPhone! You got it fast! Besides the size, is it much different from the 4S?

  13. Whoa! Can't believe you got the new iPhone already, lucky girl! And yeah, those clouds are wacky!

  14. That newborn photo is awesome Em! SO GOOD! I've been thinking about taking ones of Cooper, but I'm so tired, I haven't gotten it off the ground yet. I have plenty of time, I suppose, but I know now why people don't do their own babies. . . wish you could do Cooper!

    Your kids are so darling. Love all the pictures!

  15. Fantastic list!!!!!

    Are you guys going to Little Gym with Ryder? He is so adorable. All your kids are.

    Did you like the new Bourne movie??!

  16. I'm not sure which is my favorite, the new iphone or that you have your kids in gymnastics too! Currently loving the new iPhone a LOT though!

  17. All great things to be happy about! I get my new toy on Oct 5th, but that's because we had to change phone services and blah blah blah :) whatever I get mine :)

    Love the craft. That is so simple but so elegant.
    And those clouds … beyond freaky!

  20. For starters, your blog makes me smile! I'm pretty sure I smiled all the way through it. So you went tot he Bourne movie, man I want to see it was it good?? I think it's just crazy how fast the months are flying by. Seems like as soon as the month starts it's over. I smile continually, life's that good!

  21. Your pictures just made me smile. I have so many. my kids they crack me up all the time.

  22. Love those pictures! I didn't realize you had a new linky. I've been so busy I don't have time to comment most days. But I'm glad to see you again. I'll try to link up in the next few days.

  23. What a great list. Cant believe another month has gone already! The baby photo is so amazingly beautiful. They are so small and innocent aren't they xx

  24. That is a great smile and so glad you got a date night!

  26. #9 is totally something my son would do! :)

  27. That photo of the clouds doesn't even look real. Super cool! The grateful project is still on the top of my list of things to do this month. LOVE IT and can't wait to create my own. Thank you so much for sharing it!
