Did you carve your pumpkins yet???

I have carved 3 pumpkins so far today and I have one more to go. Hopefully I will get it done tomorrow but I am worn out after doing 3 of them!!
I bought 2 pumpkins for us and I just finished the first one.I made the Stay Puft Marshmellow Man from GhostBusters! The small parts were a pain in the butt to do! The other one I am doing is The Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland, the new live action movie, yes its Johnny Depp's face, its not going to be very easy to do and I am to tired to try and work on it tonight. This is Travis's pumpkin. He chose the pattern and he even cleaned out must of the pumpkin himself. I can't wait until he is old enough to carve the pumpkin himself!!

This is Theresa's pumpkin. She had to have a skull and crossbones like her brother but chose the girl one. She tried to help clean it out. She did a pretty good job but wasn't able to get all the guts out.

Tomorrow night is trick or treating time. I will hopefully remember to take my camera and get some good pictures of the kids and their candy. Travis promised me some of his butterfingers because he doesn't like them.

Pumpkin carving!

I am trying to plan out how I'm going to carve my pumpkin this year. I really like this one but I think it may be a bit to much for me considering the fact that halloween is this weekend!

I did have a pumpkin at home waiting for me to cut it open and I noticed this morning the top by the stem is squishy! It must have broken when it was picked up and now it is uncarvable. So now I have to go get a new pumpkin.

New Flavor Of Nyquil!!!!!

On Thursday I had a sore throat and a runny nose. I thought it was allergies, but by Friday I was feeling pretty yucky. In fact we ended up closing early for the day and I went home and laid on the couch all night. I didn't want to eat or drink anything and felt horrible. Jeremy had to go to work that night but he set up the humidifier for me and I laid in bed and breathed in all the lovely vapor filled air and was hoping I would fill better the next morning. Nu luck I woke up Saturday still congested and was running a fever. I stayed in bed for a long time and ended up getting up so we could run to Target to get Nyquil and toilet paper. You may ask why not just send Jeremy by himself, well he likes to look at all the stuff and when I send him by himself he comes back with things I did not ask for and always spends way more than what was allowed. So I went with him to the Nyquil asile where we were surprised to find a new flavor! It's vanilla cherry swirl, of course we had to try it since I can't stand the nasty green flavor.

So with my prized Nyquil in hand we grabbed the much needed toilet paper and off we went, next stop was to get something for dinner since he had to go to work early that night and I was not in the mood to cook. I really wanted pizza, don't know why I wanted pizza with being as sick as I was, but pizza sounded really good. So we went to Dominos since they have the special of a medium pizza with 2 toppings for $5.55 or some low price like that. Jeremy went in to order the food and I sat in the car, starting to feel even worse at this point. I really wanted to be home already but I didn't want to pay a tip to the pizza delivery person so we waitied for 20 minutes to get our pizza and home we went.

After I ate I decided it was time to tr the new nyquil. While it still had a bad taste I could handle it much better than the green one. I took a normal dose and waited for it to work. I was ready to go to sleep at 7pm but knew if I did I would be wide awake at 3am. So I forced myself to stay awake until about 10pm or so and then went to bed and guess what happened then.....I was wide awake at 3am!!!!! It took me 2 hours and another shot of nyquil to go back to sleep. I guess this new flavor did not work at that great compared to the original nyquil that you have to get from behind the counter and have to have your id scanned to get, at least with that one if I wake up I can fall back asleep pretty quickly, not 2 hours later!!!

So I guess my leasoned learned is that you need to stick with the good nyquil and just because they have new flavors that may taste better it does not have the same ingreidents that make you feel nice and loopy. That reminds me we also saw that nyquil makes an alcohol free formula now. Isn't that why we take nyquil for the alcohol content??

I leanred today that Jeff Dunham and his amazing puppets will be at the Rabobank convention center in lovely Bakersfield on January 30th. Tickets go on sale tomorrow and look like they aren't going to be that cheap. I really want to go see him but it may have to wait until the next time he will be playing somewhere close. Unless by some miracle the tickets are cheap and aren't sold out by the time I look for some.

Dark stormy weather

We had lots of thunder and lighning last night from these dark clouds. We even had some hail. Did I get any pictures of that....NO we were on the oppisite end of town visiting my cousin Mark since he was in town to do the plumbing on the old house that I grew up in. It got really windy and cloudy and we heard lots of thunder and then we had a few big ldrops of rain and then it was silent. It was really weird! Once we got home we got some more rain and thunder. Today we are expecting some scattered thunderstorms. I actually brought my camera to work with me in case we get some more weird weather!

A Day at Disneyland......again

In September we meet the twins and their mom and grandma at Disneyland for the a day. Of course it was the day after the hottest day of the year there and it was still hot when we were there. My pictures have posted backwards but at least they are up! It is Halloween time at Disneyland and they normally put up a lot of decorations. These "pumpkins" are up above the main entrance.

Ok I posted this and then I noticed that all of the text is at the bottom of the pictures. It was supposed to be with each picture. I am to tired to fix it now but I am sure you can figure out which text goes to which picture!!
Here is Jeremy and the boys waiting for the tram at the end of the day. It was still pretty hot at this time even it was dark and after 8pm.

We noticed earlier in the day that We We noticed earlier in the day that both Jeremy and Brett were dressed the same. The both had on red shirts, navy shorts white socks, black shoes and black hats. We called Brett "mini me: which made him made later in the day when he was tired, he said "I'm not mini me, I'm Brett" which of course made us all laugh.

We each took a boy on the Teacups, I had Evan with me and I thought we were spinning pretty fast but as it turns out we were not going as fast as Jeremy and Brett.

The boys wanted to take a picture making a scary face in honor of Halloween. I'm not sure what happened to Evan's scary face, he looks bored here! We had a really good time even with the heat. Mychele and I took the boys on Splash Mountain for the first time. When we got off Brett said he liked it and I told him he needed to tell his Daddy all about it. He said his Daddy wouldn't like that ride, it would make him scream like a girl!! We also took them on the water ride at California Adventure which they both loved and of course wanted to keep going on it. We can't wait until the next time we get to go to Disneyland with them. Hopefully they will be tall enough to go the Indiana Jones ride. I think it is the only ride at Disneyland that they haven't been on yet.

I want a taktoo.......

First my brother in law was able to fix my computer today!! Yeah at least I don't have to go buy a new one!!! I was going through the pictures on it and I found these pictures from August that I never shared. When we went to the fair we came across a booth that sells stamps and ink that are for your body. Jen bought some of them and we went home and had a "taktoo" party as Evan called the tattoos. For some reason blogger is being weird and is posting my pictures without a break between them. The top picture is all 4 kids. Brett thought he was being funny and kept making odd faces so I took the picture anyway.

The below pictures are the kids fake tattoos. They had fun picking out the ones that they wanted and wanted to put them on themselves, but nope the adults had to do the stamp and the coloring in. Theresa had a butterfly but her picture has disappeared from this post somehow. I am not sure what is going on with this! Oh well I will have to play with it before my next post, its late and I am tired and cranky tonight and really need to go to bed.

Computers and :Haircuts.

My hair was driving my nuts last night. It was way past due for a trim. We are on a really tight budget these next few weeks and so I really didn't want to put out the money to get one. Well we went to Great Clips where is it $15 for a haircut. I got right in and was done in less that 15 minutes. They guy who cut my hair then decided it took so little time to do my hair that he only charged me $6!!!!! So with a tip I only paid $10!!!

We are now having an issue with my computer. We had bought me a netbook after Christmas last year and now it has some virus and I can't do anything with it. I am hoping that we can fix it ourselves and that it is fixable. I really don't want to be without my computer and I don't want to buy a new one. I was able to download mt camera to the computer but I can't do anything else!!

Movie Review

I forgot we rented 2 movies 2 weekends ago!! First we watched the new Robin Hood, which was good but long and boring in some spots. They really could have cut out a lot of the dialogue that was not needed to keep the story going.

The second movie was Letters To Juliette which was very good. It was a happy movie that just made you feel good.

Weird Weather

Yesterday morning we had some rain or really heavy misting fog, anyway the ground was all went so it could have been either one. Today they are calling for rain from later today through Thursday morning. Maybe even some scatter thunderstorms!! I am ready for the rain. I found my sweaters to wear to work so I don't freeze all day. I have a heavy blanket on my bed so I can stay warm all night. I didn't wash my car this weekend hoping that the rain will do it for me. Jeremy is off the next 2 nights so I don't have to worry about him driving around all night in the rain. The only problem we are going to have is the dog. She does not like the water and since it hasnt rained in a while she may not even remember what it is.

I am hoping this week to be able to pull out some of my halloween decorations. I am ready for fall and winter to get here!!! I was trying to dress Jeremy up as a Hooters girl for Halloween this year but it looks like he will be working that night so he won't be able to go Trick or Treating with us. I guess I will save the Hooters girl idea for next year.
