August came and went in a blink of an eye. It was a crazy month with a lot of ups and downs. Thankfully it ended on the up side.

They are still working on the house. The kitchen is pretty much done and now they've moved onto the basement. We went on vacation to Montana two weeks ago today. The day before we had to move all of our furniture into our bedrooms so the floors could be refinished.

That Saturday was crazy and Oliver was really confused by the whole thing. At one point, while I was at the store, he wondered into his room that was crammed full of stuff. He got back into a corner and couldn't figure out how to get out. Andrea found him in there. He was crying. She went to pick him up, but he told her no that he wanted her to wash her hands. She and Anthony were painting and she had paint on her hands. She told him it was dry, but he insisted. When I got home he told me that he wanted upies, but he didn't want to get dirty. He was so sad and cute. I felt bad for him.

Our trip to Montana was perfect timing. It was great to be away. We all had fun and enjoyed being outside so much. We stayed in a cabin at a ranch. Oliver thought it was our new home. He told me he was glad that our stuff wasn't all over the place.

Hopefully September will be more normal.

Hi Leigh,
Thanks for visiting my blog and for pointing out that I completely forgot to add in the bake time on those peanut butter cookies. I've updated the post, they bake at 375.
You have a beautiful family and I love your Montana pics. My family vacations in that beautiful state every summer :) We stay outside Bozeman.
Happy holidays!
