Scrapbook pages are done! (no peaking, unlesss you are Kimberly...)

So every year my mom and dads families do scrapbook pages of what each family has done for the year. Then every family exchanges pages, as a present so that we have something to look back on for the years to come. We have been doing it long enough now that it is really fun to look back and see how people have changed. Its a great way to do a little family history in the making also. I finished mine tonight and this is what we got......

Stinkin' Feet!

So when kennadee started preschool she needed all new shoes. She had either destroyed them or lost one of the mates which left her without many. Her feet had also grown a few sizes during summer so The first of September I bought her all new shoes, church included about 8 pairs. Well Ken has been wanting skis so we went the other night to try on boots. While they were looking for the boot sizer, I decided to put her foot into the regular shoe sizer. It said she was a size 11 which is another 2 sizes bigger than I had bought only 1 month ago. I thought oh this must be different. Why I would think that I don't know.... Well I was just getting Ken dressed and she begins to tell me that all her shoes hurt.... What, I didn't mention to her that all her shoes she had been wearing were 2 sizes smaller than what the sizer said. GRRRR....

Needless to say we are off to buy shoes again today. Maybe I will be smart and by a size big, and only 4 pairs.;)

Santa's Underwear

So Jackee needed a way to ask Ben Belnap (bubba belnaps baby brother) to the christmas dance. So this is what we came up with.....
I looked for a stocking,

but couldn't find a spare,

so I ended up stuffing your red underwear.

So drop his drawers and you will find ;

a special friend who has you in mind.

She stuffed it with candy and put her letters of her name on different pieces, it was really Corney but quick.

Look what I found at preschool today!

I went to go get Ken from preschool today, and found a cute pilgrim instead.

So my cute SIL has starten making the cutest hats. Here are some pictures she took with my kids, they are great! I love the boy ones too, even though Ryker looks like a dawebe and has had a little to much sugar when this was takes. She even has ones for adults. Check out her blog to order.
If you like the bows we have them at cookie cutters, hopefully soon we will start selling the hats there too.

Kids are just plain funny~

So today I'm loading the dishes after breakfast. Ryker is always pulling things out and putting them back in. I have to go answer the phone and asked Ryker to shut it since we were done, and that is his favorite part of doing dishes. Well I went to put dinner dishes in and realized I never turned it on this morning because I got distracted. I noticed that the door was closed where you put the detergent in, I thought that's weird I swear I didn't put any detergent in it so luckily I opened it up to find this.....
Ryker loves candy, so needless to say I knew exactly who the culprit was... I just had to laugh he knew that you were supposed to put something in there, just not a tootsie roll. The best part to me is that he was obviously eating it and decided it would be better in there.

Good night!

So kennadee thought is was great we got these eye covers from Jet Blue (they give them to you on Red eye fights) She has been sleeping with it everynight. She makes me laugh about how she wont go to bed without it and she keeps it on all night. I don't see how she can breath but it doesn't seem to bother her.

meet my new little friend.

As we began watching a movie as a family tonight about 10 minutes into it Nick keeps hearing something. I tell him to relax its probably a leaf in the window well. (For those of you that don't know Nick well he can hear anything and gets all worked up to figure out what it is a little OCD)shhh...... I didn't tell you that!

Well after about 15 minutes of up and down lights on and off he goes up stairs and I hear the front door open. Well there was my new little friend sitting in the window well.

I have to say my family is sick because we had rats growing up and we loved them, this little guy is CrEePy! I can't handle those little eyes. Who am I kidding he is not little he is the same size as Kennadees black cat webkin she is holding.
Now that we haven't finished our movie and there is no way to get him out a nice way Nick is off to Wally world to find our solution.... So Kennadee and I are stuck with this thing. Ken is checking on the rat to make sure he hasn't come inside as she gets scared to realize he is still sitting there. I hope Nick gets home soon I don't know how much longer I can handle that thing looking at me while I type about his final moments.


Nick and I were able to take a week off and go to Cancun. Thanks to "close grandma, and far away grandma". It was great to sit on the beach and not do anything.
We took the ferry over to cozumel for a day and played at paridise beach for $10 you could snorkle, canoe, water tramps and icebergs. There was hardly anybody there it was great.
We also drove up to Playa Del Carmen to Xelha if you haven't been there it's really fun and beautiful. Unfortunalty I didn't take many pictures because my camera isn't water savvy. Needless to say it was great!
Also the food was fantastic (isn't it pretty)

Happy Halloween!

We carved pumpkins the night before and this is what we got!

We hade done so many things by the time Halloween came around. I can honestly say I only took this one picture that day and this is how we all felt. Nick and I were leaving for Mexico so we had a short lived main street trick or treat....
