When Fischer and Maddie Came...

We had so much fun! They even got to stay 2 extra days! I really enjoyed having Lisa and the kids. It was fun to have the house filled with kids. Every one enjoyed it except Roxy. She was pretty nervous with the kids around but was getting used to them on the last 2 days. Maddie couldn't look at Roxy with out crying and Fischer had a love hate relationship with her. We went on some fun outings. We went out to the pumpkin patch. Matt, Fischer and I went through the corn maze ( Maddie was napping in the car with mom for a minute) and we got lost and Fischer and Matt had to save me! It was really fun. We picked out pumpkins. Matt helped Fischer pick a HUGE one, and I chose one with a funky stem. Maddie loved the pumpkin patch. We carved our pumpkins and even cooked the seeds. They were really yummy. So now I have 2 fun pumpkins out front and they look so festive. We took Roxy to the dog park and played at the marina. We went to breakfast and to Trader Joe's. We played in the back yard and read books and watched movies. Now, I don't mean to brag, but I cooked EVERY night. I was a real Martha. Fischer and I baked cookies and we made apple pie. It was a great time and I can't wait to see them again.

October Fest

This is going to be a busy month. Between school and work, we will be having visitors. My Mom called and said that she might be making an impromptu trip to Reno next weekend. That's up in the air. But we have 2 for sure's. The 15th Lisa and the kids are coming out. Her good friend planned a trip with her sister and offered to bring her out here and then ride back. So we get to see them for a few days. I'm really excited for that. I can't wait to hang out and play with them. Also my sister and her husband are coming out for Halloween. I know we will have a really great time. We are going to go to a cool Zombie beer crawl. If you have ever seen Shaun of the Dead, then you will get that Matt is going to be Shaun and Stuart, my brother in law, is going to be Ed. Jess might be Shaun's girlfriend ( in movie terms only of course) and I think I will just be a Zombie. I'm sure we will do other good stuff too. I am really glad she is coming I am missing her a lot right now. It is going to be great and I am also looking forward to some cooler weather. It was in the 90's all last week. Today is more like fall and rainy and cooling off. Summer is done with and I'd like to move on to the next season.
