Halloween 2010!

I heard this joke the other day...Why didn't Frankenstein have any kids?

(Answer at the end of the post!)

I hope everyone had a fun Halloween- we had a busy one- starting with Taya not feeling well on Friday- so I looked in her throat and knew without a doubt she has strep- so off to the Dr. for a strep test which was positive. Great!

The Dr. gave her some liquid penicillin- knowing better I asked for it to be flavored- we get home and I go to give it to her and she spits it all over me- I was pissed! It had already been a long day, she was whinny and not feeling well and now I am covered in pink, sticky medicine- so we tried again with the same result. How do you force a 4 year old to take medicine that she does not want to take? Oh, and I forgot to mention she has to take it 4 times a day!

Some days I am just done with her trying my patience! She also hates dance class all of a sudden and does not want to go. She throws a fit, kicks the wall and screams. Did I also mention that when we went to the Dr. she refused to talk to him- she would not answer one of his questions and hid behind me the whole time- so embarrassing- then wen we got to the car and she was chatting my face off- I asked her why she would not talk to the Dr. She said, "he called me Taya, that is not my right name" She refuses to talk to anyone who does not call her Tay Tay! Shoot me now- please.

The rest of the kids

I already posted Bryce's picture- and I finally got the rest of the kids so I better post them.

Life has been busy around here- I just want to chill and relax, but it does not happen. basketball and wrestling are about to start- Bryce is still playing football. Taya is starting gymnastics on top of the three dance classes she takes- UG!

Next weekend I will be at scrapbooking for 4 days- I can't wait- I may even take a nap!

Dylan 10- 5th grade

Trey 10- 5th grade

Toby 12- 7th grade

Tay Tay 4- Pre-School- love this picture BTW!

Pumpkin Patch

I always loved taking the boys to the Pumpkin Patch- now they think they are too old to go- so we took Taya. She had a lot of fun.

We decided to take Toby to his first Haunted House this year- he took his girlfriend and we had a great time. I think Bryce was about 14 when we took him. It is fun being able to do stuff with them as they get older.

I am not a big fan of corn mazes. I have zero sense of direction and after awhile I do not think it is fun to be walking around a field of dried corn- but I did OK on this day!

Only mu daughter would wear a dress to a pumpkin patch!

Going for a train ride!

Mama and Tay Tay

What a photo opportunity!

Have I ever mentioned how much I love my Cricut? I made this Halloween decoration with it tonight. Not really sure how I am going to store it- but it is cute for this year!

One ends, another begins!

Bryce is finally eligible to play football! Due to bad grades last Spring- he had to sit out for 6 games! I gotta hand it to him, he still went to practice and busted his butt even though he could not play- and now he is back in the game. Number 47! These teenage years are killing me!

Toby's team won the Championship on Saturday with 2 more TD's from Toby! So his season is over for 7th grade!
