Shopping Craziness!!

Wow is all I can say. My day was jammed packed full of shopping and I love it. I love getting up at 4 am to find deals that I just can't pass up. Me, my sister and my cousin Jordan started our morning at walmart at 5am. That place was insane....I went in found what I wanted and was right back out. We then preceeded to Target, JcPenney's, Sears, Fred Meyers and some other little stores.
We were tired from all that so we decided to take a little break, Derrick met us in town with the boys and we took them to see Madagascar 2. It was so funny and the boys loved it. We had our little rest and so we decided to hit up Kmart and some other stores on the way home. Let's just say I am ready for a nap. It was such a fun day and I loved spending the day with my sister and my cousin. I never miss it and I look forward to it every year. Hope everyone had as much fun on Black Friday as I did. I am off to take a little nap.

Leaves, Leaves, Leaves

We spent Wednesday attempting to rake up the leaves in our backyard. With the wind and the boys skydiving into them it was a challange but we made it. At least until the next wind storm. I love the colors of the leaves and the way the trees look they are so beautiful but I hate the mess that they make. I guess it is just another way that God made for us to get exercise. I included some pictures of our afternoon.

Owen hiding in the leaves!

Dylan pretending to be a mummy!

I don't know what Owen was thinking?

We have a celebrity!

We have a celebrity in our household. Dylan was on the front page of the newspaper for the Veteran's Day Parade he was in at school. He is excited beyond belief and now I have to try to deflate his head. That should take some time. I included the picture but it is hard to find him because it is so small. Hope you all are enjoying the rainy weather and staying dry!

Bummer Weekend

I know that I told you in my last post that we were planning to have an exciting weekend but our plans changed. Dylan got sick and so we stayed home all weekend while he got better. Our surprise outing was cancelled and the kids were bummed. We were going to take them to watch Madascgar 2. I guess there is still next weekend. I made up for it yesterday and rented them Kung Fu Panda. Let's just say they have watched like 3 times already. What else is Dylan going to do laying in bed. At least it made him feel good. I better get going I have a long list of items that I have to get done today. Mainly stripping Dylan's bed and getting his stuff washed. Hope you all had a great weekend.

Green Eggs and Ham

As you can tell by my title that is the book that Dylan read last night. Yes he read the whole thing with no problem. I am so proud of him. He has turned into such a great reader he is even a head of his grade level. It just delights me to see the look on his face when he sounds out a word that he thinks he doesn't know...the look on his face when he finished the whole book without any help. He was so proud of himself and I was too. Dylan me and daddy are so proud of you and who you are becoming. We love you buddy!!!

Our Busy Weekend!

Let's just say I am glad that the weekend is over. We had a very busy and exhausting weekend I am still trying to recover. I had decided to take on the task of planning a Harvest Party at church on halloween night. It went so well and their were a lot of people there. I had so much fun watching the kids play game and their faces light up when their bags were full of candy. The boys had lots of fun playing with all the kids that came. They haven't even asked about their candy.
Saturday we had our first basketball game. Let's just say we still need some pratice but we will be better next week. We forgot the camera so I don't have any pictures of Dylan yet. I will on Saturday.
Sunday we went to church, came home and just relaxed. Owen wasn't feeling well so he ended up sleeping most of the day away. Sorry if this post is so boring but that is really all we have been up to. I will have more to post after the weekend. We are taking the boys on a surprise outing. Chat at you all soon.
