Parker Ranch

Ok let me start by venting my frustration. My camera is on my last nerve!!! Half way thru the day my camera's batteries died. I had new batteries with me but when I put them in the camera still wouldn't work!! I was so upset, I couldn't believe it. So these pictures are not the greatest, sorry. I guess I know what I want from Santa this year:)

Today was the "makeup" field trip from last week. The little kids still couldn't ride on the bus but we had enough parents to volunteer by driving kids out there. So nobody got left behind. I had "the boys" Noah, Daygen and Spencer in my Tahoe along with our friend/sitter Maggie. We had a great time riding out there with the boys, we sang farm songs and named animals that could be found on a farm. They were all ready for us at Parker Ranch. They had decorated the inside of a huge shed with tables, chairs, cookies, coffee, water, Diego and Dora cups. It was great! The kids took a hayride over to pick apples and back to make cider. Noah just loved watching and helping make the cider. I have to admit the cider was really good. After we went to see some goats and other animals. Then before we knew it, it was time to load up and head back to school.

Fun at Preschool

Noah's preschool was supposed to take a bus out to siletz this last week. They were heading to a farm to learn more about animals and make apple cider. They asked if I would come along so I got a sitter for Bryce and prepared myself to ride a bus with 18 preschoolers. Were were all ready to load the bus when the bus driver pulled the plug. She said she didn't realize that we had 3 and 4 year olds and they couldn't ride the big bus! Who the heck did she think was going to ride it when its a preschool group!!! So they couldn't get a smaller bus and the trip was canceled. We made the best of it and headed to the horse stables across the street. The kids loved it!! They got to pet and feed the horses. After we walked to the track where they had pumpkins waiting for the kids to pick one out and take it back to the preschool. I left around 10ish and by the time Bryce and I came back around 11ish Noah was elbow deep in pumpkin seeds!! He had so much fun carving pumpkins at school. And Bryce had a blast playing at Noah's school (as always) he thinks he is such a big boy now. They rescheduled the farm trip for next week so I'm hoping to have more fun pictures from preschool!!!

A Wonderful Candle Company

Hey everyone! Hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday. Things here are wet and windy, gotta love the NW. Anyways, I wanted to let everyone know of a great candle company that just opened in Morro Bay, CA. My friend Monica just transferred down there with her husband and has already opened her shop! Monica is such an amazing women, wife, mother and friend. Her candles are beautiful and you can tell each one is made with love. Anyways I could go on about how wonderful she and her shop is but check it out for yourself. You can read all about her candles, fragrances, and her passion behind what makes them unique.
She should be set up to take online orders in the next few weeks. Feel free to email her, if you would like you can tell her we sent you. They would make great Christmas gifts!!
Love you all!!!

Pumpkin Patch

Today we set off with our really good friends the Naylor's and headed to the pumpkin patch. What an awesome time we all had. We had every intention of leaving from our house by 9am but with 6 kids and 4 adults we were running late. And of course Noah and Daygen cannot ride in different cars so Ben and Danny got to play musical carseats:) We left Newport about 10am and got back to Newport around 345ish. We all had a blast looking for our pumpkins, petting the animals, riding the hayride and making our way thru the cornmaze. This was Bryce and Mikayla's 1st time touching pumpkins so that was a lot of fun for Brandie and I. After all the kids and adults found that perfect pumpkin we packed up and headed to lunch. With our belly's full we loaded back up to make the ride home. Two of the three boys in our Tahoe were out cold which made for a quite ride home:) Ok so I know there are lots of pictures, but we took so many cute pictures today I couldn't stop posting!! Let me know if you want more of the boys.

Noah and his Jinglebell Finger

So he decided to push his finger into a jinglebell at preschool today. He got it in and they couldn't pull it back out cause it was pronged and stuck good. They took him to the nurse and they tried ice water, lotion, gel and baby oil. It was stuck pretty good. So Lashelle called me at work and we decided to try and cut it off at the house with my Dremel. He wasn't too happy and it took a fight but we were able to cut it off without further damage to his finger. He finger had a few indentions but no blood and no cuts. We got lucky this time.

We are only down 1 game and still looking good:) I try to make sure we all wear our jerseys on Sundays, and the boys are loving it!! Gotta love football season!!!

Dog House

I'm sure most of you know about the dog house, but for those who don't...Ben finally built a doghouse for Zeus. Bryce was sleeping so he didn't get to help out, but Noah had sooo much fun with Dad (as always) I however was waiting for Ben to loose it with the millions of questions that Noah had. But was so good, and kept his cool, and allowed Noah to help out with EVERYTHING!! Of course Zeus just loves his new house especially with all the rain that's about to come.
