Just an update...

Sorry No pics this time!

Just an update....
Well, it has been a great month and a half! The kids are adjusting and loving the new house..(new to us, not a NEW house!) We have been really busy, trying to make everything work for all of us.. Adjusting is crazy!
Harley is doing good in school, which she loves! (she is sooo not my kid...)
Oakley is having fun being at Christy's house and learning how to write his name..
Adam has started graveyards this past week... Talk about having to switch to another adjustment... Not so fun... He did not get to see the kids all last week.. It was killing him on Sunday to have to wait until 5pm.
I am still working and doing Photography. If you haven't looked at the blog yet, feel free to!

Christmas is coming so we will be posting more pictures!

Friday Night.... Date Night....

On Friday, we decided to take the kids bowling. Harley was having a 'Late Night' with her friend, so she came with us. The two of them are best friends and do everything together.. By the end of the night they were calling each other 'Step-Sisters' it was so cute. They spend as much time away from school together as they do at school. (they are in the same class and sit right by each other!)

Oakley thought that it was so cool to sit and watch the ball roll down the lane. I bowled and got a gutter ball, so Oakley thought it was so neat that when he went to bowl, with the bumpers on, that he wanted a gutter ball. Needless to say, it got stuck a couple feet down the gutter. So cute!

So here are some pictures of our night at bowling.

My Friend Becky threw a Bridal Shower for me a couple weeks before the wedding.. Here are some pictures of us making our Wedding Dresses! I had a blast chatting with friends and seeing ones that I have not seen in FOREVER! I love all these girls that showed up and have always been there for me! Thanks girls for making it a great day!

Kids say the darndest things!

So tonight, I am sitting here on the computer, editing pictures and talking to family.... (thanks Em!) And Oakley comes up to me and says... "Mom, I have a serious question" I start laughing and I said, Ok.... and then he asks, Can I write in this book? (it is a Toys R US add..) Yes, I say.. but tomorrow, go to bed....

Then five minutes later, he comes in again... "mom, I got to tell you something..." My tooth isnt loose, so it wont come out... What the heck? Where did that come from!?

Oakleys Room

Oakley wanted to have his NEW room in Cars! Who would have guessed? So I went to Walmart and bought him a comforter and some stickers that go on the wall.. I really wanted to go and get the border that goes on and the big MURAL to put on his wall.. That will have to come. So tonight I talked Adam into getting his bed into his room and start getting it ready for him. (yeah, we only have 26 more days...) So here are some pictures of his room. I will post more when it is all the way done. **Note he does have RED and ORANGE shag carpet!**



Oakley wanted to help put the stickers on his wall, and UGH dont look to close at me!
He even has his own TV! (thanks Cathy!) AND a cubby in his room. I think that we need to get him a ladder and let him put his toys in there?
Oak and Adam laying in his bed watching a movie.. Yay for kids and TV's in their rooms!

Adams BIG win!

While at Harleys birthday party, the adults took some of the tokens and played a few games. Adam decided that he was going to play Deal or No Deal. He was there for a long time, he must have played a couple times to get the game down! Well I walked over and saw him and Trent standing by the game. I could help taking a few pictures.. Hello! I needed pictures to blog!

So here are the two, really into the game!

OH yeah, he picked the case that had 3 tickets....


And then it was his turn to open his case... 200 Tickets! Woot Woot! He won the Jackpot... (now if it was only REAL MONEY!)And a picture of him and his winnings! Really, the adults had a blast! I think that next time we go, we leave the kids home with a babysitter and go by ourselves!

Pirate Island Pizza

Thursday was Harleys 7th Birthday, we always do a family dinner for the Birthday person.. This year, Harley had talked about going to Pirate Island and having it there. I told her that we didnt have the money to do it, and we would go another time. So she sat home on Thursday after school and got things (cups and games) ready for everyone to play when they came over. I told her that we needed to go and pick up Adam and then run to Costco to get some stuff before everyone got to the house. She totally fell for it! We pulled into the Costco parking lot and she asked if that was Pirate Island.. I told her to read the sign and let me know what she thought. She then saw Nanny and Papa's truck along with Trent and Emilys car. She then got a HUGE smile on her face and said, thank you mom and Adam.. So we got into the place and it was amazing. I loved it! We did have a fun time. The service was okay, there were a few people that I could have done with out (some girl that wouldnt leave the kids alone and a crazy guy....). But other than that the kids AND adults had a blast! So sorry for the picture over load, but we had a great time!

Harley smiling for the camera! She was so excited.
Everyone playing the shooting game. Even the little ones loved this game.


Harley on the motorcycle, she did so good... Drove Perfect!
Oak's turn.. He loved it!
Getting ready to eat PIZZA!
Happy Birthday from the Pirates!

The cake.... It was going to be a Barbie cake but it fell apart.. Then I made this one and decorated it just as Harley told me to! And we got to Pirate Island and the tinfoil on top took the frosting off... Oh well, didnt look so pretty, but tasted yummy!
Blowing out the candles
Oak and Erika had to each have a turn blowing out the candle.

Thanks to Trent and Emily, Erika and Lexi, Mom and Dad, and Adam and Oak for making Harleys day special.

Happy Birthday Harley!

Today is Harleys Birthday.. I just wanted to wish her a Happy Birthday! She is the best ever! She is so good to her little brother, not only are they brother and sister, but they are best friends. Which I totally enjoy! They can play anything together and get along all the time. She is so good to her cousins as well. Harley is my best friend as well, and she has always been there to comfort me when I have needed it, especially in the last 3 yrs. Harley is always there to help out anyone in need. She is the best 7 yr old I know!






Happy Birthday Harley! We love you!
Love,
Adam, Mom and Oakley

Some People's kids!

Here is a story for you.... (yes it is long, and probably boring....)

The other day I was coming from my friends house to go back home and finish my table.... I was driving down the road, chatting with the kiddos... I got to a stop sign and saw a TEENAGER in a big truck (when I say big, I mean an old one that nothing is going to get passed..) I saw him getting ready to go across the street.. OUT of no where comes this Mini Van. She (the red haired lady, BAD coloring job!) T-bones this kid.. I was like WHAT THE HECK! My kiddos, being so curious ask me whats wrong.. Yes they heard the crash.. I put my car in park and get to the Teenager.. He was on the phone with his mom, and asked me to call the police.. I let him know that I can do that, after I ask if he is okay... I was pretty sure that he was hurt since he did slide from one side of the truck to the other and back.... I get on the phone with 911 and dispatch is asking me all different kinds of questions... are you okay ma'm? anyone hurt? Are you blocking traffic? hello.. I just need a police officer to come across the street from the station... Yes we were at the corner of the POLICE STATION...

Okay... So I am on the phone and the Red Haired Lady, said that she didn't need a police officer to come, because she was in a HURRY.. Yes that is why she was speeding.... and just wanted to get his insurance information... I told her that she would need a police report in order to file anything with her insurance... The dispatch kept on telling me that too.. I was like, yeah I know.. but she is in a hurry.. Dispatch talked to TRHL and told her as well.... I then talk to the kid and he says that he is alright, and doesn't need me there anymore... I let him know that I will go then... The police were on their way...

I get in my car and start leaving when the cop pulls up... I keep on going, call my mom and tell her what just happened.. She said that I should go back and let the officer know what I saw and what happened... Just for the Kids sake... I get back and talk to the officer that I do know... He was wondering what I was doing there... I let him know what had happened, that TRHL was in a hurry, and didn't want the police to come.. He told me thanks, and asked where I was at when it all happened.. I let him know and saw the Mini van, and said, That van did not look like that when I left...

Officer then says, Yeah.. When I was pulling up TRHL decided to go somewhere.... Yeah probably trying to leave because she knew that I was leaving.... Anyways, She hit another truck... HELLO.. Two accidents in 5 minutes? Who taught this lady how to drive??
I started laughing, because she was in a HURRY and yeah, caused another accident... I thought it was a good story!

Sleepy Boy..

On Wednesday, we went with Robyn and Peggy to go shopping.. Well we got home at around 12:30 and Oakley was kind of moody... Yes, just like a girl! So I told him to go into his room and play so I didn't have to listen to him cry... Then next thing I know it is silent... no sound coming from his room. I went to go and check on him and this is what I found.. He had to have his Cars mat, Cars blanket, and the cars all around him.


He was even sleeping with a car in his hands under his back... So cute!

She wanted to make sure she knew where the bathrooms were, where her class was and the lunchroom! So cute.. Here are some pictures!
