Walk-a-Thon Pt. 1

Michael's school is having a "Walk-a-thon" tomorrow! He had to get sponsors to support him and donate money for the cause. It isnt a health cause, but a cause and a pledge to be "drug-free". Each lap Michael walks (which isnt long, there is a little pond next to the school, they are going to walk around it) the sponsors donate the amount they want per lap walked. I am going to be cheering him on! YAY MICHAEL! Also I will be posting pictures of my little walker! This is going to be FUN! The kids are all getting a special shirt too! They also signed red ribbons and a pledge card, pledging to be drug free!

More to come tomorrow after the walk-a-thon!

Carving a Pumpkin

Well I never really carved a pumpkin, so this was my very first attempt. Of course Michael's too! Let me tell you! This carving pumpkin thing is HARD! First cutting the top out to scoop out the guts and seeds, well that was hard, THEN we took this outline we taped to the pumpkin and you have this thing, a poker, that you poke the outline of the design into the pumpkin so you can cut it, and then this little saw like, knife thing to cut out the design...HAND CRAMPS!!!!!!!!!!

All and All it was complete, and I must say we did a pretty darn good job :)


The victim...The Pumpkin...


Scooping out guts and such:



No more inside:



Of Course mom cutting out the design:



YAY we are done!






Big Orange Pumpkin Farm - Celina, TX

Today we ventured to the pumpkin farm...actually we went to two of them...the first was at a church and was free (well of course except the pumpkins..)It was small and not much of anything to do but all in all the boys liked it, they had a hay maze they went in, and they loved it!









Then we were off to find Big Orange Pumpkin Farm...

Our New Place

YAY we are all moved into our new place! Michael loves it, and so do I! I told you I would snap some shots for you to see what my place looks like so here it is! I love how much SPACE we have! I also LOVE how there is no cars, burning rubber going out of the neighborhood and blasting their base in their cars! I also love how I dont have neighbors who listen to loud music all hours of the night! I guess I just LOVE this new place! Not to mention BOTH bathrooms have Garden Tubs!

This is the entrance when you walk in:

Sorry!

I have not been posting in a while, I know, I am sorry! Things have been well...hectic. I got rid of my car, got another one, a newer one...Mazda Protege, Hunter Green (I like it).
We also moved! Which is exciting, the place is bigger and so much more nicer then the other place we were in, we have a fireplace, and I always wanted one, I got to decorate it :) I will snap some shots of it a little later.
I am also getting sick...a cold maybe...Sneezing for the first 2 days, running nose, and today (the 3rd day) I just started getting the coughs. I HATE BEING SICK!
So YES I am misrable to say the least, and I want to get this place put into order, Well all MY stuff and Michael's things are put away...it is the other Mike, whose things seem to be laying around everywhere with instructions that I cant touch anything LOL Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Well Hopefully by this weekend it will be put away :)

This weekend (Saturday) I am planning on going to the Grapevine Pumpkin Patch, seems like it will be a blast!

I will have to take tons of pics of that!

Other then moving, we have not really done much, we missed the Texas State Fair...cause we had to save money, and going to the fair was not a smart idea, as far as blowing money was concerned.

Maybe next year, Everyone I spoke to told me how much fun the state fair of Texas is.

Here is a link to it, I will now have to wait til next year to go.

It looks really cool!

Other then that, I have been working...oh Michael started his new school on Monday, he hasnt complained, I think he likes it. He received the 9 weeks words that his new class has been working on and he already has done them, or they are fairly easier then what he was doing at his other school (which is good)!

His teacher and all the office staff seem really nice.

The only thing that boggles me is the fact that their are no buses lol...we live 2 miles from the school, and there are no buses, What if I didnt have a car? How would he get to school? Weird!

Oh well, Talk to you all later!
