Pumpkin Patch a Birthday and a Trip

We spent Saturday driving up the California coast from Santa Cruz to Half Moon Bay to go pumpkin hunting. We have been going to this pumpkin patch for years. Well not the years we spent in San Antonio. But years anyway. But I guess in our few years off they decided to go all nuts and up the prices for all the fun things to do. And there was all kinds of ways to spend your cash. We had lots of fun anyway. We ran, well everyone but me ran around trying to find the perfect pumpkin. Wyatt took no time at all, Lucas was next but had a hard time focusing at the task at hand. Way to many things to climb on, hang on or crawl under. But finally he found the pumpkin that would come home with him. Then we had Madelyn. She picked up and looked over a hundred pumpkins before picking hers. I guess she gets that from me. I drive everyone nuts at the Christmas Tree Farm. It takes a long time to find the perfect tree. So after Madelyn hunted and hunted she finally found a worthy pumpkin. So then it was off to the hay maze and bounce house. Madelyn, her cousin Allie, my brother and my hubby ran off to do the hay maze and I took the boyz to bounce. It would have been nice of them to put in a few places for the grown ups to sit. It was kinda funny watching all the moms and dads looking impatient while the kids were happily bouncing away.

This little boy will be 6 on Thursday. So off to Disneyland we go to have the best birthday/Halloween ever. We are taking 6 days off to go play like crazy people, eat yummy food ride on rides and dress up for Halloween and run around Disneyland. Even 6 months prego I will be living it up in the Happiest Place on Earth. I may even be more excited then the kids. And they are so excited I don't think there will be much sleeping tonight.

So off I go to finish packing.
Have a wonderful Halloween everyone!

Today is our first big storm of the season. I love stormy weather. But as the winds pick up and the small branches continue to hit the roof of the house I may begin to reconsider. We have a huge tree in our yard with its huge branches. Like the size of a small tree branches. We have had a few come down over the years that I grew up in this house. Nothing big happened but still.

So we are all home today. School is closed. Not that I was going to hop in my car with all the people who don't know how to drive in the rain. But here we are and it is just a mater of time before the weather or some really bad driver takes out power out. Then I get to figure out how to cook the chicken i had out for dinner. Camp stove it may be.

But for now I think a few cups of hot chocolate and a movie will do just fine.

Crazy Life

Life is crazy. I don't know if it is because i am pregnant and everything seems to take so much out of me, or if it is just plain crazy. I am leaning toward just plain crazy.

I am behind on all my swaps, so sorry everyone things will be in the mail soon. I was able to get most of a quilt done for my brothers birthday. I made the top long ago but had never gotten around to quilting it. So I am happy to be down to sewing on the binding. His birthday is the 14th so I have a few more days. this one was made out of the super popular gnome fabric by heather Ross. When I saw that fabric a few years back I knew it had to be a quilt for my brother. I will get a pic before I give it to him.

Wyatt went on his first school field trip Friday. they went to Johnson's farm to pick pumpkins. We had so much fun. I was a brave mommy and let my boy go on the bus with his friends and I followed behind in my car with Lucas. I could have gone on the bus with the class but I had a feeling that all the bumping around on a bus seat would cause my prego tummy to bounce and also the fear of it making me wet my pants. And as funny as that would be, it is not what i want Wyatt to remember about his first field trip.

We fed goats and chickens, went on a hay ride and the kids were able to pick pumpkins off the vine. The kids were all too cute and had so much fun.

My picture are not loading. So sad.
