Ice Box


So I have been helping L.C. with his science project this week. He had to create a box that would keep/slow down a piece of ice from melting. They are going to have a competition in class on Friday. We have tried very hard to let him do most of it on his own, and come up with his own ideas. You all know how painstakingly hard this is...right??? I would throw a few suggestions out here and there about improvements and such. Well yesterday he finally said to me "Mom, I don't have to win to get an "A" ". All I could do was laugh. Oh the wisdom of an 8 year old! Again for those of you who know me know how much I like competition and I LIKE TO WIN!

Speaking of winning (not to rub it in) I must mention that my good friend Heather in Japan said that I needed to give the little ones who helped me carve the pumpkin credit, so here's to No-Bo and J.J. who also have bragging rights!

Bottle up

I just wish that I could bottle up days like this!


Or my sweet little babies...I just love the innocence that they still have! I don't want them to grow up!


Or the smell and taste of homemade pizza...YUM, YUM, YUM!


WHAT WOULD YOU BOTTLE UP????

and the winner is...


Thank you to those of you who voted! Guess who gets bragging rights for another year!! Yep that would be me...the master carver! I'll try not to rub it in too much!


Here are my sweet peas on a rainy Halloween! They did awesome going up to doors and saying in unison "Trick or Treat". My big guy Luka was invited over to a friends house for the night, so he missed all the fun we had and I have no pictures of him. I think that I missed him more. It was weird not sharing these memories with him. I think we agreed today that he wouldn't miss out again on this time with family.

We went to some friends house after we trick or treated in our neighborhood. Adults were supposed to dress up too, so this is what we came up with. I stayed up late tye-dying the shirts and sewed all afternoon on our pants. Not too bad for last minute!

The kids and I made a huge yummy mess making and decorating cookies.


J.J. loved the sprinkles!
Tinkerbell and Peter Pan before their school party. He was not at all happy about dressing up this day!



















Just had to include this picture. She loved dressing up and playing the part. After we watched the movie she would say "oh and something I forgot...dust...yep, just a little bit of Pixie dust". Such a Q-T-Pie!
