Okay...I have been more than bad at keeping up on my blogging and it's not like I don't have anything going on in my life to write about I just haven't put in the effort. My friend Shawna sent me a friendly reminder to get back to it so her I am :) I haven't posted since September I think and we've had 4 birthday parties,Halloween,Thanksgiving,and Christmas whew... and I'm sure there is stuff I'm missing it was a very busy Fall!

I'll start with Halloween, L was a dark fairy princess....I'm just glad she didn't want to be someone from High School Musical! and my son was Darth ( or Dark as my son calls him) Vader. Over the last several years we go to the Fall Fun Fair etc. and my kids are over Halloween by the time it actually comes so we did an old fashioned Halloween this year and went trick or treating and that's it and we had soo much fun!

Thanksgiving and my Dad's birthday fell on the same day this year , we were all supposed to go out of town for the holiday but we all ended up getting sick with a terrible cold that turned into infections for all of us so needless to say it was mellow and all we wanted to do was rest....

My son's birthday is Dec. 7th and we had a Batman birthday party and my Husband's dad and his wife came out for it. I am blessed with wonderful inlaws and I'm so glad they came :)

My daughter's first school Christmas play was this year and she was a cute! She hated it of course and it was really hot in the auditorium so she was really uncomfortable.

My daughter's birthday came soon after and she decided to have a slumber party, which was actually alot of fun. She got to pick 3 girls to stay and they are all really well behaved little girls!

Than came Christmas Eve! One of my most favorite nite's of the year! We go to my parent's house and have dinner and than open's the nite I finally get to relax and have fun and spend time with my family! It's much more fun now that there are 4 children , my nieces are getting Christmas now and it's really fun to watch all of them open the presents.
Christmas morning of course I love! It is always so fun to see my kid's faces I love it! We go to my Mom's for Christmas early dinner and then go relax at home. I love Christmas but I am glad that it's over and a new year is starting!
Speaking of New Year's , we are having some friends over tonite for New Year's Eve, nothing fancy just hanging out and visiting. My Aunt and Uncle are going to be here from New Jersey on the first and I am so excited, they will be here for two months and I'm really looking forward to it as we don't get to see them as much as we'd like since they live across the country.
Hope all three people that read my blog have a wonderful New Year's Eve and safe too!!

Coolest book cover ever and my first tomato!

I am reading this GREAT book called The Seamstress. It's is set in Brazil in the early 1920's about these two sisters. One gets captured by the cangaciero's and one marries a man she doesn't love to get out of the countryside and move to the city. It's so good I have a hard time putting it down, I read until 11:30 last nite and had to make myself go to sleep. It has the prettiest book cover , I would frame it if it didn't have words all across it.

I have been doing alot of knitting lately, I'm inspired by Fall coming. It doesn't feel like fall where I live as it was 115 outside this weekend! The fall catalogs start rolling in though and it makes me want to feel cozy. I'm so bad about capturing what I'm working on in photos, I really do need to make time to take pics, so busy is the life of a mother of two!

I FINALLY have tomato's!!!! I picked my first one Sunday, it is the size of a golf ball, it's small but I am proud all the same of my little tomato! I'm going to cut it into liittle wedges with some salt and eat it tonite! I can't wait until I can pick tomatos everyday...I love them :)

It has been threatening to rain all day , I wish it would I love the rain. It probably will not though

my husband says it has to do with the mountains around us and the humidity off the lake blah blah blah blah and so it always goes around us :( or storms at nite when I cannot enjoy it. Maybe I'll do a rain dance around my tomatoes tonite.hehe!

Sad Days....

Sorry I haven't been here in a while,we have been busy little bees since we got back from camping and then we had a very bad day last week and I haven't felt like posting anything.

I am feeling better now and feel like I can post without crying...we'll see.

My very awesome best friend died last dog Oscar. I came home to check on him like I do everyday and found him and then proceeded to freak out! I don't even remember last week, I cried everyday. This week is better and I'm getting to the acceptance part, it's wierd how certain animals just make their way deep into you heart and it hurts like hell when they die.

Oh come the tears! I thought that I would post some pics of him so you can see how cool he was.We loved him very much and he so so so so so missed!

more propane, come back fix leak.

go back to town and buy two new batteries, come back and hook up batteries.
3. everything working now except t.v. and microwave and outlets, too tired to deal with that, will
wait till morning

skunk smell! dog sprayed by skunk that was at our front door!
5. husband gets t.v. working and outlets

12. all family is leaving and going back to their comfy homes, hubby catches his dad before they
leave to help move trailer to full hook up site, everything is now working again.

On the plus side, it's beautiful here, we have had so much fun with family and riding our bikes and fishing , campfires etc. There were tears this morning over saying goodbyes.
I have a wonderful hubby who has been great considering he really hasn't go to enjoy himself since we got here. We are now finally getting to relax and he is out riding his bike with our daughter , we are grilling tonite and just trying to finally relax!
I don't believe we will be camping again any time soon...LOL!
