Post Halloween

I know I said I was going to show you all the cool things we made yesterday...
Yea...I only took one picture...

 I will admit I was kind of bummed that I don't have any of the cute cupcakes with cute head stones or with the worms coming out of the dirt... but...they were really cute and a HUGE hit at our Harvest dinner at the church.

But we also did this...
 I can not find the pictures of Josh, Ali and Derek carving their pumpkins too...
I will keep looking...
But here is Kira's 1st jack-o-lantern
 and this is the first time Sergio has ever carved pumpkins...he said it was Kira...heheheee
 Kira dressed up " the little one" for Halloween

 I LOVE that my kids are not so "grown-up" that they can not have fun.
 Sergio went as a pirate
Derek was dressed in the favorite 70's outfit. Josh was a umpire
Ali was a punk star and Celes was a kitty cat.
The pictures of them must be with the carving pumpkin pictures.
We had a great time at the church dinner and then went to visit family and then
back to the house to carve more pumpkins and watch a scary movie...
yep that was the best we could do at 11pm
Hope your Halloween was safe and wonderful.

Happy Halloween

I love the holidays!!!!

I will show you what I have been making all day today....tomorrow...
But, I do have a question....
What day are you "celebrating" Halloween". Saturday the 30th or Sunday the 31st?
We are celebrating to day...the 30th
So, even if I am not doing anything tomorrow...should I still pass out treats IF someone stops by?
Hope you have a great weekend no matter when or IF you celebrate.

How Can I Be So In Love With A 50 Year Old

My dear husband, KIRK was born in 1960
Here is the proof...HE IS 50!

I do not know how old he is in this picture, but I would guess 3 or 4

It is no wonder Kirk has such a love of Football...

I wish I could have found a picture of him as a Senior playing Football...
But I do have his Senior Picture
So, how can I be in love with someone who is 50?
It is very easy.
Kirk I love you with all of my NEW heart!
Happy Birthday!

Halloween Decor and a BLACK CAT

Yes, I know there are only a few more days of October...
But I promise my decorations were up by that sounds good...

 Today, my sweet friend Lorna brought this over to me...

Do you see what it is? YES it is a black cat...but look closer....
I found the instructions HERE on the SUNSET web site.
It suggests that you carve the eyes out...
I like Lorna's better because it will last so much longer.
Lorna you can come get pumpkins from my pumpkin patch anytime!
by the way she won 1st place for decorations from a pumpkin at Zeb Bell's Great Pumpkin Party.

New To The Neighborhood

I have loved watching these go up near the Burley Butte.

We would pass the semi-trucks from Salt Lake City with one blade on the back of it's LONG trailer...
I had no idea they were coming to my neighborhood!
To put the wind turbines into size perspective look at this picture from the TIMES NEWS.

November 2, 2010 ... Are YOU Ready?

I saw this picture on FACEBOOK and fell in love with it.
It is called "The Forgotten Man"

Drawing by Jon McNaughton

What I really like is that it does not depict on "Party" better than another...
But, that we the people have to choose where we want our country to go in the future.
Are YOU happy with the progress or do you have concerns?
Do you know who is running for YOUR STATE offices?
I have not voted down a party line in years...
I have voted for who I think will represent me, my family and my concerns the best...
I am not real sure how I have been doing?
I only have a week to finish learning about the candidates in our area...and right now...
I do not know if any of them will help.
How are you feeling about the Mid-Term Elections?

In Only 4 Months...What BIG Changes

Sweet little Celes has made.
Here she is only 1 hour old.
and  2 days old
At 1 week old you can really see how pretty she is going to be.
 and she just keeps getting bigger
 and developing her fun and sweet personality
 Here she is FOUR MONTHS OLD!
Oh my goodness we have so much fun!
She loves her hands...which can reach out and take what ever she would like to touch.
But, the most recent "trick" is blowing bubbles.
Oh, I love my sweet little grand daughter.

New Spot In Town

It is always nice when something new shows up
in our small little farm town.
This is what opened this week...
(It is next to the drive in Little Cesar's) 
It was really very good. They have several different flavors that you can add to your cup PLUS tons of toppings.
and it is ALL self serve!
Here is the tricky part each ounce is 39 cents
 Yes, the size of a shot glass.

 Everyone gets the same size cup to add your flavors and toppings to.
I would guess it to be a Cup or Cup and a half.
Kira and I tried several different flavors (which by the way change every now and again, but you can go to the website to see what the flavor of the week is) and we had plenty plus toppings and our total was less than $5.00.

I suggest if you are near our little farm town take the 208 exit and try it out.
I will be going back and back oh yes and back!


OPEN Monday - Thursday 11 am - 10 pm
Friday & Saturday 11 am - 11 pm
Closed Sundays

641 Overland Ave. N
Burley, ID 83318
208-677-KIWI (5494)

I am so glad to see something new!
now if we could get a Sonic and Michael's I would be a very happy person

Do NOT Try This At Home

Kirk has been working on our Tile Roof...
I came home to see this...

What Did You Do This Weekend?

I wanted to go to the mountains and see if the leaves were starting to change colors.
So, when Kirk got off work we drove to the area of southern Idaho known as Rock Creek.
There was a little bit of color.

 But the further we went the more colors we could find.

 We found one of the many nice little camp grounds and roasted hot dogs

 Kira and I were both grateful that it came with a nice clean potty.
 It was nice just to hang out
 and it was a good thing we were not in to big of a hurry to get home...because we found our selves taking a few misguided dirt roads.

nothing to be worried about...
Kirk is really good at finding his way around.
It was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon and evening.
