Halloween fun!

So this week has been a busy one! The girls, along with my sister in law and nephew went to Walters Pumkin patch in Burns, KS. This place is so cool. It's so not your typical pp at all! The had slides that started at the top of a man made hill, then you go through the hill and you come out of the bottom. They had tons of places for the kids to play on, slides, swings, you name it they had it. Paddle boats, pumpkin launchers, pedal cars, trains for the little ones, etc.....oh yeah, they had a pumkin patch or two! We had a blast and took lots of pics but of course this site is acting up still and it takes forever to even get a couple pics downloaded!



Here are some pics from last night. We started at my mom and dad's house and then headed over to out friends, Jason and Christy's house. We've gone trick or treating in their neighborhood for the last three years because the whole place goes all out on decorating and handing out candy. As you can see we have Hayley as a cowgirl, Sydney, the princess herself as Cinderella!Then Payton went as himself, just read the t-shirt and that should explain it all! Cody went as a scary guy but he couldn't wear the mask around Sydney. You'll see why in the pics below! Our friends children, Matt and Eliza, went as batman and batgirl! Too cute!! The night was a bit chilly but not near as bad as last year and the kids were all well behaved for the most part!
Bobby and I did our responsible parent thing when we finally got home and checked the candy! I hate doing it but I really feel that we need to protect the kids from bad candy! I can safely say the candy is free of any poison, razor blades, etc...I just hope the kids don't notice all the Reese's Butter cups gone!

99 bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles of.......

Sing it with me! Ok, you don't have to but that was the theme for last Saturday! My brothers, sister in law and I wandered downtown to the midwest beerfest to partake in the sampling of over 400 beers! OMG! We were like little kids on christmas morning! So before we got too sloshed we headed over to the food vendors and got something on our tummies and then we were off! Here is a before picture, not to say there is really and after picture of TJ and I! Before anyone asks who drove our drunk asses home, I would like to say my lovely sil, Angela was our DD! She did this out of the kindess of her heart and because she was promised that next year she has immunity and will not have to be DD!

TJ and our DD, Angela

This was taken by Angela as she was drooling since she couldn't drink her fave beer, Newcastle! By the way she took that blue sign! lol!

Just a glance from above!

So here is our only real after picture since I refused!
Nice Tim!

Here is Angela's new golf bag she bid on and won at the silent auction! Notice it's a Newcastle bag! No if we can get our husbands to take us golfing!

So Bobby joined us afterwards at TJ and Angela's as well as Jason and Christy for more cocktails and dinner.

Because this is how he rolls!

Jason and his Flying Dog beer!

Minnie and Jason! Really, no caption needed!

We got a bit bored and instead of playing board games like we had planned we decided to get in the halloween spirit and go visit Thearosa's Bridge! I know, it's something we did in high school but we had a blast! I guess the fact that most of us were pretty intoxicated helped!

Shocker Madness

So tonight was shocker madness at Wichita State. We took the kids since they all had fairly good reports from parent/teacher conferences. The girls scrimmaged followed by the boys. Then for the finale they had a slam dunk contest. Look close in the pics of the judges of the contest and you'll see Jessica Hughbanks from this seasons Big Brother.

It was fun but started to drag out for me since Syd needed to potty every two minutes and she was cranky near the end. Plus my new camera batteries went dead and I didn't get as many pics as I wanted! It was neat to see the new coach and hear his thoughts on a very much anticipated season. Though I am a KU basketball fan first I do love the shocks and hope their season is exciting and successfull! GO SHOX!

On a bad note, the Boston Red Sox lost again tonight and that makes me very angry! Just thought I'd let ya'll know that!

What a day!

My day started off by waking the diva herself, Miss Sydney up at 6 am for her 1st day of preschool! She was so excited about it and got up so good this morning which is so not like her! She even had her first completely dry night in panties! WOOHOO! What a kid! I can't wait for her to get home and tell me how her day went! She did so good when I dropped her off that it made me sad in a way but it just reassures me that we are doing the right thing! You can just see the excitement in her face in the pictures below! I usually take 1st day of school pics outside but it was still dark when we left this morning!

So after dropping Syd off at school(that sounds so weird to me, I'm so use to her being home with me!) I met up with Hayley's class at the zoo at 9am. Let me say it was such a beautiful day to be at the zoo! I had a good time. Hayley picked two other kids to be in our group and of course she picked boys! She reminds me of me so much! Such a tomboy! They were fairly good and I was just glad to be able to spend some time with Hayley! She is such a good kid! So right now is down time and I'm waiting for the gang to get home. I should be sleeping since I work tonight but I can't wait to see Syd!
Below is a pic of me, I chopped my hair again and went darker! Payton says I look like a rocker! I guess I'll take that as a compliment! lol! I really like what Crystal did this time. I always like what she does with my hair but this time she took very little direction from me and still managed to create something I had totally pictured in my head! Crystal ROCKS!

What a nut!

This video below cracks me up! It's about Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Islamic president of Iran. He was in the USA last week and spoke at Columbia university in New York. He was introduced as a "petty and cruel dictator" by the university's president. He is well known for his anti-Israeli statements, his disbelief in that the Holocaust ever happened and that his civilian nuclear weapons program is in all regards, very peaceful! He also believes the non-existence of homosexuals in his country! Here is a excerpt of his speech regarding homosexuals,"In Iran, we don't have homosexuals, like in your country. We don't have that in our country. In Iran, we do not have this phenomenon. I don't know who's told you that we have it." Yeah, I know, unbelievable but not unexpected. The video below is a something SNL cranked out this weekend in response to his statements made while in the US! Too funny!
