A Pirate Adventure

Well, as most of you know my baby boy Evan Doodlebuggie turned 4 YRS OLD on Saturday! I cannot believe how fast time is going! He will be in KINDERGARTEN next yr.....holy s%$*! He loved having everyone over on Saturday to celebrate his birthday. The kids had a great time playing pirates. There was "walk the plank," an object hunt, pin the flag on the map, sword making, telescope making, a cannonball fight, and of course a treasure hunt. I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did putting it together. Lana did an outstanding job on the pirate ship cake. Thank you to Auntie for that and for pics.....which I will try and post later when I get them. Thank you to my mom for helping with the treasure hunt....she hid the clues while we all played. And THANK YOU to all the moms for helping me with the kids! We will do it all again when B turns about the older ones will be able to help with the youngin's and we can all sit back and drink some "tainted" pirates punch and have a good old swashbucklin' time! Ok Me Heartys?

Tell me what you think?

Rambo or Footloose?

Ev decided to put one of my ouchless headbands on while playing the computer the other morning....he still had his pirate ship tattoo on his cheek from Halloween....his hair stuck straight was to cute to pass up a pic!

Halloween 2008

AAARGGGHHH Mateys! Halloween was so nice this year. We put the firepit out in the driveway and J and I took turns taking the kids trick-o-treating. They made out like they stool a whole lot of booty! hehe!

Yuck! Pumpkin guts!

Look at Evan's face....priceless!

Daycare/Preschool Halloween Hoopla...

On Sunday the 26th the boys had a Halloween Hoopla at their daycare/school. It was really nice. They had a parade, sang some halloween songs, and all the teachers were dressed up like the Wizard of Oz characters. My little pirates had a great time eventhough they did not want to participate in the "performance" part of the afternoon...huh, imagine that!

Midnight duty

Well, I am behind on my blog....again....suprise. My schedule (week) has been a little off due to the fact that I worked midnights on Fri Oct 24 th and Mon the 27th. It went fine, but the sleeping thing during the day through off my routine just enough.

I had a T.S. party on the 22nd at Meme's (Deanna) work. It went well. They are some crazy folks those UCS busdrivers! Don't worry though.....I will still trust them with my kids when it is time!

The boys have had busy weeks with Halloween and parties, etc. By the way, Happy Belated Birthday Blog post Laura! We had a great time at the house Sat night. The kids fell asleep by the time the car hit 23 Mile Rd.

Tues the 28th J and I went to see Lonestar, Joe Nichols, and Jason Michael Carroll at the MGM Grand and OH MY GOD! is all I can say. The concert was FANTASTIC and we had 7th row. I wanted to shoot myself in the foot however because I forgot my camera at HOME!!!! I asked J to stop and buy me a new one on the way, but from the lack of pics you can tell that he DIDN'T! Of course Lonestar sang out song Amazed, but it sounded just a little different seeing as though the leed singer of the band has changed since we got married....I think within the last year if I remember right. JMC turned out to be the most genuine performer and I truly enjoyed his performance.....he sings Alyssa Lies in case you don't recognize his name. I TOTALLY recommend concerts at the MGM. With the close up seats and intimate crowd....the theatre was probably smaller than Stevenson High Schools felt like you were in on an exclusive performance or something. The casino is nice too.....hopefully it will be non-smoking soon along with all of MI....hopefully!!
