I can See!

Andrew got his glasses today. When he put them on he said "I can see", so funny. He looks so cute. He has to wear them pretty much all of the time. He is allowed to take them off for P.E. and things like that. I think he likes that Harry Potter has them as well!

Are you ready for some football?

Flag football started this week. Ok, you all know that I am not a huge football fan, but it is so much fun to watch Jordan play. He absolutely LOVES it. He is the captain of defense. He knows everything that is going on throughout the entire game. His favorite thing to do is to kick-off, and then go and grab the flag of the kid who caught the ball. So far he hasn't missed. Football is his favorite sport. He really wants to play tackle. I say no. They practice 5 nights a week and travel for Sunday games. I will try and tape a game so I can post some of it here. It's very entertaining.

Sweet Aeve...

Last Friday my friends, the Brown's, were in a terrible car accident. Aeve (Eve) died as a result of head trauma. She was 9 years old. Mitzi, her mother, has injuries to her hand but thankfully everyone else is okay. They were driving on I5 near Bakersfield when the uncle who was driving fell asleep behind the wheel. When he awoke he over corrected causing the Suburban to flip. Mitzi's husband, Tom, was on the East coast for the military. Also in the car were Mitzi's other children, Isaiah, Shad, Giddeon, and baby Tabitha. I attended the memorial last night. It was beautiful. Pictures swarmed the halls of Aeve. Aeve was a very intelligent, social and talented little girl. She was involved in many organizations. It's amazing how much a child can accomplish in such a short time on earth. She touched many lives. We will miss you Aeve!

Pumpkin Patch

We had a great Saturday at the Pumpkin Patch in Dixon. We picked our own pumpkins right off the vine. We went on a hay ride, a first for all of us. We went with Juli and Erik and John, Carla and Payten. The kids loved the huge hay stacked pyramid. We had a fun time!

My Treasure!

Today I did a lot of laundry. I thought I would share with you the items that I found in the washer. I do go through the pockets, these are just the things that I missed. The items are, a piece of bark, a fake pair of teeth, a small battery, a pink rock and a chess piece. A quarter was found as well but we used it today to buy a diet Coke. I really needed a lift. I have washed some interesting things. The most impressive thing that still works is a game boy. Nintendo must have designed the game boy with moms of little boys in mind.

Driving Miss Daisy Belle

We are watching Daisy while my parents are out of town. Daisy is actually my brother Ryan's dog. My parents have cared for her while Ryan went on his mission and while he is in college. Quite honestly I think they could never give her back. She is a funny dog. On her second night with us, she fussed all night long. She was whimpering and barking (half bark and half howling) . We let her out, that didn't work. We pet her and gave her attention, that didn't work. She was very irritated. Finally she slept on the floor. She was refusing to get in her bed. Now, this is strange for her. She LOVES her bed. The next morning she was sitting, staring at her bed. She was doing her half bark, half howl thing. I looked in her bed. A Purple block was in her spot. This block was taking over her bed, and Daisy was not happy. I quickly moved the block and Daisy got in her bed. She slept all morning.
