Call me crazy. My kids HAD to have it for dinner tonight. There was no getting out of it. So being the nice mom I am I sat in the drive -thru for ONE HOUR AND FORTY FIVE MINUTES. Yep, you read that right. I told the kids to enjoy it because we are not going back til the hype dies down.


Yep... In-n-Out is OPEN!!! I kid you not it isn't 5 minutes from my drive way to theirs. I am hoping to go and eat there soon I am just not sure I want to wait in an hour or more to do it. But I will keep you posted.


When they get quiet...

you know they are into something. This time the something was glue. Which she thought was shampoo. Thank goodness it was washable white glue and came out with one wash.


Favorite Foto Friday 11.6.09

When when we in Boston, there was always a camera out. Someone was always trying to capture our moments. At one point Rachel and Jared took pictures of each other taking pictures. I just love what they both caught.
Don't forget to head to Candid Carrie's to see others favorite fotos.


Belated birthday post

I know it has been a while since the Bean's birthday. But better late than never. Jillian had a great day. Family came all the way from Idaho to share her day with her. Lots of games were played, good food and BROWNIES (she has decided she doesn't like cake, just like aunt Nicole) were ate. Presents opened and shared. Jillian got several pairs of shoes which Sabrina immediately decided to try on and model for her big sis. Thanks to EVERYONE who came by to share her day. Again I can not believe she is EIGHT.


Jared's 1st Campout

Jared went on his first scout camp out. Owen went as well. Somewhere out in the west desert. They came back tired, dirty but I think it was a success. Even if it did rain during the night and Jared's tent leaked. Though I will say both took a nap when they got home right after I made them shower.


Halloween 2009

Again I am having to admit my failings as a parent. I don't have any pictures of Jillian or Hayden other than when they were carving pumpkins. They when to a party and then trick or treating with friends so they didn't come home til they were done. Good thin I wen to the parade and have some pictures in their costumes.

Jared left part of his Grandpa costume at school so we need to find a new costume. Good thing I buy Jillian's Dresses with room to grow. They fit him just PERFECT. The only thing I need to buy was his own tights. As you can see they are great for playing soccer in the house in. Jared worked the girl costume to the max. He took one of my purses as his trick or treat bag. He told me at one house they asked what he was dressed as. He said, "a GIRL". then the people started laughing so hard because they thought he WAS a girl. Owen is so proud.

Owen only had to take the two little one out this year. He was gone about a 1/2 hour and then he was done. Good thing they are cute and people drop extras in the bag because they came back with plenty. We only had 5 kids come by our house so, I am putting it out there, I AM NOT BUYING CANDY NEXT YEAR. We will have a dark house with no pumpkins so don't stop by. Next holiday, thanksgiving...here we come.


Pumpkin Carving 2009

This year we were a little late to the caving of pumpkins. Though it did fill some of the time while the kids were waiting for it to get dark on Halloween. Gavin had his own to carve from his visit to the pumpkin patch with his school. The other chose to have one LARGE pumpkin to cave together. The turned out really cute but you will just have to take my word for it because I forgot to take pictures of them.
