Family Day

We had a family day today. We headed up to Apple Hill for some fun in the foothills. It was hot and crowded. We did stop at a few apple places.
It was nice to spend some time with the fam. We stopped for pizza and had a nice time at the end arm wresling and thumb wrestling!!!

You can check out my apple hill flickr set.

How cute are these?

My friend Stac and Julie were at Costco the other day. They came across these pre packaged sugar cookies that came with all the forsting and decorations to make these cute cookies. There were actually 20 cookies in the kit and tons of decor. I think the whole kit was under $8 for everything. So RUN to Costco and get this kit . It's a fun way to pass the time. Sidenote.....Okay I know this will shock some of you..but I'm going to attempt to make some of my favorite cookies this week. I love the iced sugar cookies....kind of like the above...but fresh out of the oven and then iced. I think it will be a good project for me and my kiddos this week. I will let you know how they turn out!!

Guitar Lessons Pay Off!!!

Stand In Mom ROCKS!!!!

Everyone needs a stand in mom. She's handy to have around. Don't ever take her for granted!!

You can mozie on over to Trina's Flickr Photos and she took some great photos of my girl Lexi

at the pumpkin patch field trip. HUGE thanks to my kids stand in mom!!!

Her's got a secret!!!

Okay there is something new on my blog......first one to find it gets......ummmm......gets......a coffee drink....

So start looking you blog fiends!!!


These are my kiddos. Lexi was about 3 and Wolfie was 8. There are moments of peace between them and when I hear them playing or one of them being helpful to each other it realy warms my heart. Then most of the time that warmness freezes up really soon as someone just got poked in the eye or maybe made a song up with their siblings name in it.....oh the joy of siblings!!!

In the SPIRIT of Halloween!!!

I just love this photo. It's so sweet. It looks like she's trying to get Jake to protet her!!!
He's willing to help out!!! So sweet!!!!

Okay so it's Tuesday.....

Life just whiz's by so fast. I had a great idea for a post.....just need to follow it through. A week in the life...of my life....I encourage you all to do the of each day and what your daily routines are. It could be pretty interesting.

I have a few new loves. Gene Simmons Family Jewels and House of Carters. Both freak shows of equal parts.

So what's going on with you internet?

Friday, October 13, 2006


Okay so it's Friday and I am really sorry for my lack of posting lately. I was trying to post the Rob of the Jungle photos but for some reason Blogger BETA would not let me post more than one photo at a time. So you will have to check out my FLICKR photos.

Survivor last night....okay not that great of an episode. I like it better when it gets down to about 10 people total.

LOST is getting good but very confusing. What happened to the polar bears from last season? Did Walt and Michael really get sent home? Hmmmm I did like it when Saywer kissed Kate. Smart man to see how strong the other team was.....they do have amazing chemistry.

Other shows I'm watching when I can Nip/Tuck, Gene Simmons Family Jewels, House of Carters, The Nine (Looks really good so far)

So hope you all have a nice FRIDAY and I will hopefully be posting more soon!!!

Good TV Night & Blog Secret

I was going to take a photo of our pizza picnic last night but I was too lazy to get up and grab the camera. We got Round Table last night. That's a big splurge because it's always more expensive than Pizza Guys.

Survivor was great. They all ganged up on JP and got him out. Even the other 2 guys voted for him. I'm glad the girls got wise and got together. I was really mad at Cao Boi for knocking that birdie down. At least they got the nest and baby back up there. It's starting to get interesting and I like to be about 3-4 episodes in and then start picking my fav's. Yul is up there right now.

Okay do you watch The Office? That show ROCKS!!!! The writers do an amazing job and the actors even more. Just so funny. I'm really ready for Jim and Pam to get back together. I love how Jim's office was playing Call of Duty. So when will he transfer back?

I still have on TIVO The Nine to watch. Looks kinda good. Another Party of Five alum in that show. Did you watch it ? Also I have been watching on Bravo "Million Dollar Listing" pretty funny stuff from the real estate biz down in L,A. I watch the first 10 minutes of The View. Rosie's funny but I don't really like the entire show.

Okay so this is a boring friday post all about TV. Sorry. I'm going to leave you with a little blogging secret. On the Chloe you see the little box between the words and the photo of Chloe? Click on it and tell me what you see ? :-)

Okay Steph O U T

Poor Chloe

Why does she always try to fit somewhere she's too big for?

Latest E-Coli Victim

Thanks to my sis for sending this to me!!! LOL

What a week.....

A good week just busy. Lexi wants to take Gymnastics and Wolfie is starting guitar lessons. WOW!!! So that's girl scouts, Gymnastics, piano, guitar and basketball coming up. FUN!!! I'm co-coaching Lexi's basketball team and that should be a riot!!! I can't wait to yell "RIP IT RIP IT" hahaha just joking!!! Oh yeah Lexi also does Awana on Wed night. She loves Awana's and it's so cute to see how excited she gets when she comes home.

Lost was back on last night!! What a great and freaky show. It makes it all worth it cause Matthew Fox is on the show and it's like a Party of 5 re-run. It will be very interesting to see how it all plays out this season. Looks like he may have a new love interest on the horizon also....

The Office in on tonight right? Rob and I love that show. It's so funny and uncomfortable all that the same time. Oh yeah Survivor takes me a few weeks to get into it and find a favorite. I like Yul though. Cao Boi is something and we love to say his name around here. I get lots of headaches and could use the wind taken out of them!!

Okay so that's it for now. I didn't want to leave you all with the crazy coffee post.....

If you haven't checked out Wolfie's Reptile Blog go there now. He's doing a great job and is really into his animals and the blog thing right now. Don't be scared to leave a comment or two!!!
Here's Sahara. She's a beauty and a favorite of mine!!

Coffee ?

Okay this morning I went to make my coffee. Since there were little children sleeping in the living room I didn't want to grind my coffee beans and wake them up. By the way one of those children that was sleeping will remain un-named and not in any of my blogging photos.

So I find some coffee grounds that have been in a sealed IKEA container. My question is does coffee loose it's caffeine? Did I drink those 2 cups in vain? For not? NADA? Is my awakeness due to really being awake or from the help of my coffee?

Things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmmm
