Here we are carving some pumpkins. Cindy Grandma is visiting from California and the kids are loving it! Tay's my little witch, Lauren is her black cat and Austin is my little stinky skunk. Had a wonderful time. Kids got lots and lots of candy. The girls are already planning their costumes for next year!
I absolutely love fall. I love the colors, the fun holidays coming up, all the fun fall clothes. Uhh.. love it all. I can't believe how insanely fast this year has gone. This weekend is Halloween!! Lauren can't stop talking about it. I'll post some pics of them all dressed up. And next week the big craft fair that I am doing again. Uhh... it's all good though. We made a fun trip just a little ways out of town to pick some pumpkins for the kids. Here's trouble! Here's the clan. These are the little girls that I watch. They all have so much fun together. Aren't they so cute!? Oh my gosh..these pigs smelled horrible! I have the worst gag reflux and I couldn't handle it. They are ginormous! We really eat these things?
Daddy and his little man. They truly are buds. It's so cute! Looking mighty fine Joey! Here we are at the pumpkin patch in Billings. We meet some of our really good friends there. The kids had such a great time! Gotta love the hay rides and corn maze. Tays and Brooklyn. These two are so adorable! Enjoying the hay ride! Trying to find our way through the corn maze! I love this pic of Austin and Chris. Love Bubba's little squishy face!!
Just thought I'd give a quick blurb of we have kinda been up to. I added picks from newest to oldest. Its been a crazy, great summer. We finally moved into our new house, which we love more and more everyday. Taken a few trips, and tried to enjoy the nice weather as much as possible. It's amazing how fast summer goes. Not sure I am ready for this cold weather again. First pic is Shell Falls, near Shell WY. We were there last weekend for a camping trip, not so fun when it's 40 degrees and raining nonstop. Oh well we still had fun.
Joe and the kids did a little fishing. Nice fish babe!
Our new place. Keeping us busy with painting, painting and more painting. It's a great house and the kids love it. Lots of space to run and play hide and go seek.
Tay's is 7! She wanted to have a tea party. They had lots of fun. Wish she would stop growing.
So here we are at the aquarium in Denver. Denver is awesome! We had a ball! Did lots of walking, not by choice, and site seeing. We will go back for sure here soon. Lauren and Taylor's fav was feeding the sting rays. Really cool, they bite though. Had no idea until one took a chunk out of my finger.
Kinda random to have a tiger at the aquarium, oh well.
Taylor and Bobby. Enjoying roasting some marshmallows at Cindy Grandma's house in California. Too much fun. We were there for Jessie's graduation and Bobby's baptism.
Austin and daddy at hmm..ahhh I can't remember which beach. Maybe Bodega Bay? The kids actually swam in the water. It was way chilly.
Love this pic, crazy boys. This is following Bobby's baptism.
I'll enclose some more pics soon. Once I getting a little bit more time.
I give up on trying to stay on top of my blog. I just have too much going on lately. These are not the most recent photos, but I will post more later. So what's new with us...? Hmm..not a whole lot. Joe has been working graveyard shifts these last 2 weeks straight. I am going out of my mind. I hate when he works nights. Tonight is his last night, yahoo! Tay's is almost done with school. So excited about that, summer is coming. And oh were under contract to buy a house, finally! Were way excited and praying all goes threw. Here we are out and about at the local lake doing some fishing. We had fun, just a little windy! And just behind you, a great view of the plant! It's huge
Love my girls, so cute. Taylor loves to pose for pic's. Lauren not so much, she'd rather pick flowers.
It was a little windy!!!! Guess they were trying to keep warm?
Here they are not luck fishing!!
Here's Tay's and her cousin Olivia. We had such a wonderful time visiting my family in Missoula. My brother Scott and his wife Laura were up visiting from Vegas. This was our first time meeting Olivia. She is such a doll. So sweet, amazing baby. We had a great trip. Can't wait to see them again in July.
Maybe a little bit too much excitement for Austin. It's hard traveling and keeping your kids on schedule. While we were there Austin took his first steps. So fun to have my family see the whole thing take place. He is such a fun little man. I love the stage he is in now. His personality is really coming out. He's a total goof, loves to play and mess around with the girls. Now he is walking around like crazy.
Two weeks ago he said his first word, "uh oh". He drops everything just so he can say "uh oh". And last week he started saying "momma". So fun, how do you stop them from growing?
