Happy Belated Birthday Bon!

(I just saw this in my drafts folder! Sorry for the messed up order!)

I hope he had a good day! It started out great! The kids and I were up before him and so we hopped in the car and got some Krispy Kremes since Bon isn't a huge cake fan. This was the best picture out of two with him and three of the four kids.

Then we went to the Discovery Place. We laid on a bed of nails...

Played Tug of War ...

And you wrote yourself a Happy Birthday message out of Kapla blocks!

It was a great day!!

New look

I changed the look of my blog. I kinda like it! I better like it I guess, since I wasted time on it instead of putting laundry away, cleaning the kitchen, etc., etc.

What Reagan did

So during one of my sewing streaks this summer, Reagan begged and begged to have me teach her to sew. I had her practice on a piece of lined paper, first following the line and then following the guide lines. She did very well, but I was nervous that she was going to get her inexperienced fingers. She did really good. We made a baby blanket.

Here is the finished project!

Here she is while sewing. So cute!

And the business goes on...

It seems like from the time that October started, it has been go, go, go and it isn't going to end until....January??!! But I guess maybe all this going will keep my spirits up. :)

I never got Bon a present, but we did spend the day together as a family and that was really nice. There was a moment when we were sitting just talking to each other with no kids demanding attention and he commented on how nice it was. Just to be together. And I agree.

Halloween came and went. I would post pictures, but somehow I can't get the computer to find them and when I stick the card back into the camera, it doesn't show them there either...I will be so sad if they are gone. Bon is trying to help me find them.

Up next is my friend Mary's birthday party. It's this coming Saturday and we are having it here. She turns 40 on the 8th and acts like she's 17. She is so fun!

Ryan stayed home from school today. He has had a runny nose for the last couple of weeks and just sniffs it in because he refuses to blow his nose. I keep telling him that he'll get an ear or eye infection if he continues, but he just won't blow it! So after school yesterday I noticed that his eye was getting red. Great. I asked if his ears hurt. At first he said no, but changed his answer. We trekked to the dr. this morning where it was confirmed that he didn't have an eye or ear infection. The Dr. flipped his eyelid up and found a foreign object that was irritating his eye. Got that out and then put a drop of "water" *wink wink* in his eye and looked at it with a black light to make sure it wasn't scratched. All was fine, so I'm glad for that.

Parent-teacher conferences are tomorrow. I love going to those and hearing the good stuff about my kids. :) They are good kids.
