Yes we all love to carve pumpkins. I love to do all that fun stuff with my kids. But I have learned my lesson on how long I can keep their attention. Casey & Devin decided they were going to carve pumpkins with my kids. Well Devin decided he had better things to do. But Casey was there and she got the kids carving kits. Oh my gosh they are sharp little knives. Anyway Braxton was interested until he got the top cut off and I told him he had to dig it out. Yeah right this is the kid who pukes over his own boogers. He was done after that. then MJ she was into it. She has so many holes in her the pumpkin will not stand up. Casey got stuck digging out her and Brandin's pumpkin because playing football outside seemed more intresting to Brandin. CJ James & Matt did not help much. They also played football. So thank you Casey. You are a great help with the kids and they love you to death. The Fab 5 will have her completly trained by time she has kids.
No this is not my hot new boyfriend. This is Michael Buble. I love his music. It gets me away from the crazyness my son listens to. My sister Echo had me listen to it and I loved it. So give him a chance. And once you see his picture you can pretend he is singing to you. Wow that is something. So give him a chance. Check out the link and let it play the whole way thru! And I can not get the blogspot to do what i want to get your directly there so cut and past this link to your bar and please watch.
Braxton turned 5. I was going to have a big party for him but we got so busy. Time was going by so fast I had to take a breath and just have it. I decided to just invite the Fab 5 and their kids. (and a couple other kids from next door). After everyone arrived we then realized. Holy crap the fab 5 have a lot of kids. We have been doing all of these activities together but we never realized how many we actually had until they were all bouncing off of the walls in my living room. We have always been outside. It was a great night we played musical mats and they danced. We sat at kitchen table and shot the shit until after 10pm. I was very happy with just the Fab 5. It worked out well. For those of you who have lots of brother and sisters and do not spend time with them shame shame shame. I am so blessed to now have such a great group of close friends.
I should not lump these pictures together. These were taken on two different days. Two really fun days. The top photo with 5 crazy ladies with wigs on are use on our Halloween camping outing. Lacie hosted the October outing. We all has camp sites for the weekend and we gathered at her camper during the day. We had light parades, played bingo, they had hay rides and a haunted house and crafts and trick or treat. What an awesome weekend. We have already all booked for next year!
The second picture. We all had to have matching shirts. I hosted this event. We all went to Gram Leons. We went to the Tanger Outlet mall in Washington and then we went out for the night. I will post more about this later i need to gather my photos. It was a wonderful weekend. Gram loved the shirts!
