Missed a couple of days

I've missed a couple of days on here...but here some pics from the past few days.  Our oldest went to a birthday party of his oldest and dearest friends (they've known each other since they were 18 months old).  Her party was at Pump Up the inflatable place outside of town...they had a BLAST!

Our youngest had fun too, jumping on the toys and riding the cool car that rolls down a hill.

Computer games

Last night our oldest had a friend overnight...they have been playing video games most of the time they've been together. I think both had a good time.

A Timeless Classic

Tonight, we watched some of the Wizard of Oz with our youngest. He was cute dancing as the Tin Man danced around. I hope that he will gain a love for this movie as he grows older. It truly is a timeless classic.

Alton Brown Has GREAT Tips

We watch Food TV quite often in our house and one of our favorite cooks is Alton Brown. He has such great ideas and tips for how to cook some of our favorite foods. Jim often takes the tips offered by Alton and cooks some of the greatest foods. Tonight was no exception. Jake had decided he wanted steak for dinner and Jim cooked them. Boy, were they good!!!

She's Back

A month or so ago, we added a new member to our family. Her name is Allie and she's a baby calico. She's a sweet lap cat and is so patient with our youngest.

She has been at the vet's office over the past few days. She was spayed and declawed on her front claws. She seems to be doing well, but has to be hurting...she's not as peppy as she usually is. But she's home to rest and gain her strength and is as snuggly as always.

Welcome home, Allie.

A Little Help From a Friend

Today, the boys and I were on our way to the funeral home for a visitation. Because we're new to the area, I wasn't really sure where this particular funeral home was, but we set off to find it. We drove through the town and I didn't see it...we were on the outskirts of town and I thought, "OK, we can either drive around aimlessly and never find this place or we can stop and see where to go."

Just then I saw a WV State Police sign and an officer getting into or out of his car (he was sitting in it with his door open). We pulled up behind him and I asked him if he could tell me where it was. He said he thought he knew where it was and pointed the way. But he also asked another office just to be sure.

I didn't feel so bad since he wasn't sure and it was another lesson for the boys of the folks you can trust to take care of you. If we hadn't asked for directions, I don't think we would have gotten there.

Milestone and New Project

I've been wanting to do Project 365 for some time, but didn't start it right after the first of the year. Today I hit the "Big 4-0" and decided I would mark this milestone year with a picture each day.

Oh, great AARP is sending me emails asking me to join...our oldest says, "You can't do that, mom, you're not old enough." That made me feel good.

Here is what the front of the house looked like this morning thanks to some of our more mischievous members.

Trick or Treat

Here's some pics from last week...there would be more but my camera's memory card was loose and I only had internal memory for Batman and Robin.

For preschool our 2 year old went as Mickey.
