More painted pumpkins

We tried to do a sports themed pumpkin for Nicky but unfortunately the rubber stamps I have do not work so well on a round surface. 

So he painted his pumpkin with metallic washable paint. His Mama & Daddy were so proud of him.

The extra pumpkin we had, we just added some spider stickers to it!

This is something I would never ever do! I hate scorpions!

I got strung by a scorpion about 6 years ago & my thumb was numb for two months. I used to get a lot in my home. Duh I live in the desert (their home). But when my brothers-in-laws put in my laminate floors they also replaced the strips at the bottom of my doors. NO more scorpions in my house. Which makes a very happy me!

It's looking like a sunflower day.....

Yesterday was my mother-in-law, Donavee's birthday. I had her & my sons over for dinner. What does she show up with .... sunflowers for me! I told her it's her birthday not mine. She is so sweet. I'm not with her son but she is still my mother-in-law and like a second mom to me. We had a great time & a great dinner. My son Jeremy grilled our steaks to perfection!

Painting Pumpkins

The kids were out for fall break last week. So the girls & Nicky had a  craft day.

Angelica working on her pumpkin.

Nicky cutting Walmart ads out. He was loving this. Good thing this is a skill needed for kindergarten. He's got a couple years to prefect it.

 Angelica's Monsters Inc. 

Allyssa's ladybug. Nicky wanted to pose with her's, silly boy. I'm not sure why the pose???

My parents 60th Anniversary

I was in Farmington N.M to celebrate my parents 60th wedding anniversary. They looked so great. I was able to stay a week and I enjoyed every minute of it. Dad's health is declining & I want to spend as much time with him as I can.
We went to St Clair's to celebrate with family & friends

These are the cupcakes my sisters and me made for the party. We had so much fun decorating them. This is just one batch. We made way to much!

This photo was taken in the yard. This is where my dad is the happiest. I am so sorry he has to do dialysis three days a week that leaves him so tried he can't do much any more. I wish I could be there with him all the time to help out.
