Day 299

October 26th, 2014

This was actually taken yesterday.  The Fishbach family came over, we had pizza and carved 14 pumpkins!  It was a lot of fun.

Day 298

October 25th, 2014

We heard a loud BOOM in the back of the house about 11:00 this morning.  Our neighbor behind us was just about home when part of the steering shaft broke and he jerked to the side hitting our other neighbors van, car and our back rock wall, shooting the truck 10 feet into the air slamming it down on our back property - where we often park our van, and our and the neighbors children climb and play.  Miraculously no one was hurt (except for the driver who got just one cut). 

Day 297

October 24th, 2014

Fieldtrip Friday to the Ape Caves and Petrified Forest on Mt. St. Helens.  We went with the children's school.  The boys LOVED the caves, the girls, not so much.  In the forest there was a long skinny cave you had to crawl through - you can see Jadon climbing down the ladder to get into it, and me coming out the other end - Jude was the only other one brave enough to do it.

Day 296

October 23rd, 2014

Jude put a bagel in the microwave for 10 minutes - I stopped it after 2, but it was quite charred.

Day 295

October 22nd, 2014

I'm experimenting in the kitchen again.  Sprouted lentils toasted. The children and husband are afraid to taste them.

Day 294

October 21st, 2014

We had a rain storm and Jadon enjoyed it very much.

I changed her diaper and she didn't want her clothing back on.  She ran around the house saying "I am running around the house naked."  Funny girl!

Day 288

I did a booth today up in Washington.  I always enjoy doing that.

Today is Jenea's 14th birthday.  She would not let me take a picture of her so I'll post something she'll always remember - mom in the kitchen setting off the smoke detector.  This was supposed to be rice crispe treats. Love Jenea so much, maybe next year she'll let me take a picture of her.
