Skateboarding and Rockets

Today was a great day to head outside to skateboard and fire off a rocket . . .

Well, maybe I should rephrase ~~~

Today was a great day to sit outside and watch the boys skateboard and also watch Randy and the boys shoot off a rocket!

Pictures from our day:

We all rode in the four wheel truck.

Weekend Accomplishments

We had a really good weekend ~ relaxed on Saturday and accomplished much on Sunday.

Noticed our trees are beginning to put on their beautiful color for Fall. Some trees in our area are in full color already. 

It is back to the school and work week. Things are going well for both ~ Praise God!!!

This weekend we:

  • replaced a few batteries in clocks
  • replaced some light bulbs
  • boiled eggs for the week
  • made the boys macaroni and cheese (homemade)
  • made a few deliveries for friends
  • went to the basement at the office to look for something ~ never found it
  • took a little drive
  • straightened up a little in our messy storage room (still plenty to do)
  • pulled out a few more things to list on Ebay
  • tidied my desk
  • paid bills 
  • put together a gift to give this week
  • aired bicycle tires
  • tidied the garage ~ again!
  • went through a storage cabinet in the garage
  • fixed the keypad entry button for the garage
  • cleaned the hedgehog container
  • hard boiled two dozen eggs
  • tidied the house a bit
  • hung a Fall wreath 
Now it is time to head to bed.

Quiet, Snoring and Zero Plans

The hour is late, but before I head to bed I wanted to write a quick post. 

The house is quiet, except for Emma's snoring. The kids have been in bed for a few hours, as has Randy. I decided before I went to bed to accomplish a few things for the office while I had the quiet to think . . . always a plus. 

We had a very quiet (nap kind of) evening. We were tired from our week and Ryan requested we nap. The three youngest didn't nap, but stayed quiet so everyone else could. 

I look forward to the weekend. We don't have plans for tomorrow . . . I love weekends in which there are zero plans.

Can He REALLY Be TWELVE? Lots of Pictures

Twelve years ago Randy, Katelyn and I were anxiously awaiting the birth of our first son Ryan Matthew. It is so very hard to believe it has been twelve years!!!

Happy 12th Birthday Sweet Boy!

We LOVE You!

Our second child and oldest son, you have always been the leader of the pack!

Life has always been intriguing to you . . .
especially where dirt was concerned!

You are always full out to "catch the BIG one"!

 Not sure what you were doing in this picture, but quite sure you were VERY loud!

 Growing to be quite a fisherman.
 It took a while for you to enjoy the pool, but once you took to it . . .
AQUA man!
 Although little brothers can get on your nerves, I always knew
you would be a great big brother!

Your mind is ALWAYS concentrating on HOW something works.

I have always loved this silly photo!

You are often carrying bags . . .
even now you carry my handbag wherever we go.

You have a love for animals . . .
you take after Katelyn and I.
Although there are times, the animals have run away and hid!
You are growing into a fine young man.

Aunt Ding Ding and Uncle Sam would be so very proud of you.

You named our newest duck - Gwen

We love to play "tricks" on you when you aren't expecting them.
You were a good sport about this one.

You cheered on your sister Katelyn . . .
it made me smile.

You are ornery.

You can be very loving . . .
just ask Twizzler.

You always loved Aunt Ding Ding's Fish!

Not only are you a twinkle in OUR eyes,
you were the TWINKLE in Uncle Sam's.

Ryan Matthew . . .

God BLESSED us the day YOU were born.

I Love You a Bushel and a Peck
a Bushel and a Peck with a hug around the neck!

Happy Birthday!
