i absolutely love this time of, coffee, leaves, colors, halloween, weather, and other things. i have been so busy with work, owen, and life.

since i am doing the yearbook this year at school i get the privilege to go to some of the sporting events at school and away. these were taken at an away football game.
the other weekend before it got so cool outside tony washed and waxed his car. owen was such a little helper and couldn't resist when it came to washing the car. he was soaking wet by the time tony got finished.

the other week i actually got a monday off and we took owen to the zoo. he had a blast, but i think his favorite thing was touching the camel. if you are wondering as soon as we got back to the stroller i had those sani wipes to clean his hands :)
in the afternoons we spend every minute outside until owen says "eat" or it is just time to go in. i was in the kitchen cooking and happened to look at my back door and this is what i saw...

a couple of fridays ago they were having team day at school or so i thought. i read the sign wrong and we were a week early, but he looked cute. of course you know me i always have my camera handy and every picture i took he had his eyes shut.

we went to our first bowling birthday party and i must admit owen loved it. he actually got to bowl, eat greasy chicken tenders, and have his first icee.

last sunday we went to my mother-in-laws and it was a typical sunday...i spend my time playing with owen and his cousin katherine while everyone else stayed inside and watched the titans play. here are some pics of them playing with various things that we found in the garage.

i found something new owen loves...raisins :) the other night he sat on the counter and ate till his little heart was content. the next day when i picked him up from school they said "he had a very interesting diaper...there were some beans? in there" i just died laughing b/c i knew it was the raisins.

i have a lot more to post but i am really tired. i will post our pumpkin experience later this week.

i received a call from my father tonight letting me know they are not expecting my uncle to make it through the week. please keep my family in your prayers through this difficult time. he has lung cancer. i am taking a 1/2 day off on wednesday in the pm to go visit him at his house. he is at the point he really doesn't know people, but i need to see him one last time.

Well, as many of you know I played the lottery last weekend and I DIDN'T win :( I was so mad that I had to actually get up and head to work on Monday. Bummer! I want to be home with my monkey so bad!!!! I am so sick of his current childcare, I hate the teachers, the kids that are in there, & everything that involves the daycare. I think I might look at other options...We have him on some wonderful waiting lists, but that's what we are doing...WAITING. I HATE it!!!

Why can't I stay home with Owen? Why does someone else get to see him more than I do? As you can see I am angry! I am sitting in Starbucks, waiting for T to get off, meet me, & head to the Honda dealership to drop off my car & my mind in racing. Probably not a good thing.

Today was picture day & it ran smoothly! I was worried about it, but I so many compliments on the whole day. I was really sweating this.

Oh well, I will post more later. I am headed out of here.
