Blog Stalker+October

OK maybe nothing that serious, but still, one of my favorite things to do in the WHOLE WIDE world is to blog surf, I heart TipJunkie, I usually start there then get stuck:) I love to read about what everyone is up to (if only certain members of the family would write more!) I am just this evening a convert to the Meanest Mom blog, she is wicked funny! The only problem with all this catching up on whats going on at my favorite blogs is that it can takes hours no, wait, it can take days! LoL.

So I have to write today, its the last day of September (Cindy its Tuesday:) and the last day of the month always makes me sad and happy all at the same time, sad that another month has gone, my kidlets are all another month older (I"M another month older!) life is flying past and I still haven't finished sanding my bookshelf's (I have been talking about sanding those bookshelves for months). The last day of the month makes me happy because I can't help but feel excited about all the things that might happen next month, tomorrow I will wake up and it will be October, how awesome is that, I can finally hang up my bats and get out all those scary fuzzy spiders for the corners of my house, I love putting up fuzzy spiders. It also means putting those window clings (that don't cling without gorilla glue and duct tape) on the windows. The first day of October means baking something involving pumpkin and googling new ways to scare my kids, it means the cozy glow of a wood-stove early in the morning and trying to convince to my girls to be something mean instead of something sweet for Halloween. October means Chocolate!
October definitely means leaf collecting, pumpkin carving, warm sweaters and knit hats and cold feet when everyone piles into one bed on a Saturday morning (who am I kidding! That's happens most mornings!)
I love October

I LOVE the Fall!

I kicked myself out the door today. Felicity was my semi-willing victim er subject.
Joff was so sweet and cleaned my kitchen for me today:) you would understand how awesome that was if you have seen my kitchen recently! My least favorite thing to clean is dishes!
Happy Birthday to Caleb! We are officially celebrating his birthday on the 5th of October with Elli, I love saying I have two 1 years in the house now:) Sweet, wonderful terrors that they are!

Went to TOFW Friday and Saturday. It was fun and I will write more about that later:)

Caleb will be 1 tomorrow!

There was frost on the ground this morning!

Editing sessions today.

Arggggg taking pictures is awesome, but when it involves six children that are YOURS, its near impossible, Add in that they are 1(tomorrow) almost 2, 3,4,6,7 and you are in for some trouble:)
Needless to say, people who think that photographers have all those awesome pictures of there kids are sooooo wrong:D Other children are incredibly easy in comparison! Oh ya, it was also breezy and cold that evening too.
So there you go, here are a couple I have edited, more to go through, hopefully I come across something amazing!

Laying here, sipping on thermaflu. Browsing houses on Realtor.com. Yuck.
Joff is bundling up the babies, they are going out to stack wood.
I need to crawl out of bed and go sort laundry.
Watched the 2nd episode of Fringe last night. Freaky.

So does two posts in one day mean I have no life?
Felicity is doing sooooo good in Gymnastics, you should just see her on the beam, she is doing fantastic!
I hate doing dishes. Did you know that if you read my journal from the time I was 11 till I was about 16 all of my entries start with "I did dishes today....." no kidding!
Jilly-Boo is adorable, aren't two year olds (ok almost two) the cutest?
Papa is Celebrating his 80th this year, I am very excited and really would like to get down there for his birthday, so if anyone wants to send donations my way for that trip............I do paypal:)
My Papa has Parkinsons, I feel like a total loser when I compare myself to him, he is amazing, he just goes and goes and keeps busy and does so much more in a day then I can ever do. He has accomplished so much I don't even know were to begin, I just hope that I can take everything he has taught me and do justice to it! I love my Papa.


Odd Ramblings

I ENJOY brushing my teeth, yep that's right. It makes me happy to have clean sparkly teeth.
Why? For a couple of reasons.
I hate going to the dentist. With a passion. I am fairly sure that my list of fears goes something like:
Dentistry is inhumane and sadistic.

I also like to brush my teeth for a more happy reason, Chocolate. I don't feel quite as bad about eating it when I am know that a toothbrush is standing by, ready to brush away the evidence.

I also have this weird fascination with toothbrushes and toothpaste. I like to "try out" different brushes, make notes ect.

I can get excited about toothbrushes, they are usually on my list to Santa and the combination of a box of chocolates and a new toothbrush is to die for:)

Its Sunday:)

Bet you didn't know that did you?
Well today had been a mishy mashy day, I have been feeling sick and headachy and stayed home from church with Caleb.
My Genuis Husband has finished his first animation (for a class at school) I am going to see if I can get him to Youtube it so I can share it with you all, I personally think it is quite clever:)
Ok going to post some funny youtube videos for you.

First day of Grandma School

Evs and Milton are going to Grandma school this year. Elli walked with her brother down to Grandma's house, she was so excited that she brought her favorite book and backpack:)

Evs was so proud of himself when he got home, he already loves Grandma school as much as Felicity did.

They call me Chowder

Do you notice the trend? My kids refuse to smile for me, of course I don't ask them to, but still when they are in the middle of a belly laugh and someone (me) points a camera at them how in the heck do they always manage a straight and serious face?

Color me Vintage

Ella covered in honey and dirt, but still absolutly adorable:)

Happy first day of school Felicity!

We got you Stinky!

We have a skunk problem.
He is big and won't give up despite many scraps with the dog, the other night Woffy and Joff trapped him in our culvert, Joff stuffed the ends until morning when he could have him removed. Evs the next morning was excited to hear about the adventure the night before and ran outside with Joff shouting "We got you Stinky!"
Sadly Stinky escaped and (happily) hasn't been seen since, for his sake I hope he stays away.
