Yes Peas!!

I've started feeding Dax more table food and he's liking the peas!! He's always been a good eater so I'm hoping he transitions well to people food!!

It's Turkey Day!!

We decided to host Thanksgiving at our house one last time before we move!! and I must say it was DELICIOUS!! (especially Torrey's banana cream pie Darin & Ty  hid in the back of the fridge!) and of course the kids had a good time hanging out with each other and it was so nice outside they spent most of their time out in the fresh air playing!!

Top Banana

Degan was the student of the week this last week! He picked out all his pictures for his board and took candy to share for his favorite treat!! He is loving the first grade and being in Mrs. Brooks' class!!

Hoping & Praying

I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one hoping & praying for Mr Mitt Romney to be our next president and I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one who was disappointed and went to bed with a heavy heart that night, my kids were even bummed he lost. But one thing I am sure of is that I'm proud to be an American and even on our worst day it's still a hell of a lot better than a lot of other places!

Me Familia


I couldn't decide which edited pictures I liked best so I did collages of both the color pop and seventies!! This year Dustin decided to be the goofball and there were very few pictures of him not making some crazy face and than when he was normal Degan was doing something silly, and than  there were these stupid dogs that kept barking at us so Dax would not smile, but even with all that craziness Monica manages to get some good ones and I always say I only need one good one!!

Poor Mickey!!

Dillon and I pulled up and noticed this mouse looking thing smooshed in between the garage door panels. I'm thinking this can't possibly be a REAL mouse,Dillon agrees and says he thinks Dad is playing a trick on us and put a stuffed mouse in the door! We get out for a closer look and find out that the mouse in our door is NOT a joke and than the boys had go get Thayne & Allison to show them poor Mickey smashed in our garage door :(

FYI: The mouse stayed there until Darin woke up later that afternoon!

Hip Hip Hooray! Its Candy Day!

This year for Halloween Dillon was Where's Waldo! (Which everybody loved) Degan was a Zombie Football player! Dustin was a SWAT police officer and thanks to Aunt Carla Daxton was his inmate! We made Dax an inmate at CCDC where Daddy works and his inmate number is Darin's P number #7638. They all had to go to school on Halloween day and they each had class parties, I was crazy and signed up to be the room mother for Dillon's class, it went well but I probably won't do it again! The week leading up to Halloween was also a lot of fun Degan went to Gavin's Halloween party, they went to a trunk or treat at Lin's and Dillon won first place in the best costume parade! and they also got to hold a snake and Dillon had another piano recital! I'm just glad October is over!
