Sunday we had our annual family Halloween party. We headed out to the pumpkin patch for fun then came home to a yummy dinner of homemade macaroni, salad, carved pumpkins, and topped the night off with a yummy dessert. Here's some pictures of our festivities....Click here for Pumpkin Patch Pics

We had a fun day today! This morning Jacob and I went to a local nursery where they put on a Halloween planting party for kids. Jacob put together a basket of flowers decorated for the season. Here he is showing off his creation!
Afterwards we took a road trip with Ella, Grandma, and Uncle Jeff to visit a Wildhorse Sanctuary. It is a beautiful place and such a peaceful setting...well when the donkey's aren't HEE-HAWING that is! Here's a link to some of the photos we took... CLICK HERE FOR PHOTOS!

Our home remodel project is slowly getting done, we're coming into the home stretch now. The tile flooring is 90% done and we are VERY happy with it. SO VERY glad we chose not to do it ourselves! We're told the countertops may be completed by Friday but it's looking more like Monday or Tuesday.

A yearly tradition we have with playgroup is taking a trip out to Bella Vista Farms. It's an animal rescue facility but during the fall they offer hayrides, petting zoo, hay maze, and everyone gets to pick out a pumpkin. We always have a really fun time, just wish it was a little cooler. We need some of that crisp fall weather to hit us to get the full experience!

Awhile back I had submitted my picture to be used in the production of a computer comedy cartoon called a Jib Jab. Last week they contacted me to fax in release forms because I was chosen to be in one of the more prominent roles.

Our summer has been consumed with a home addition and remodel. We are slowly coming to a close with everything and since I've gotten so many questions about it, I thought I'd share some pictures of the progress so far.
I'm really, really hoping this time next month we can say we are DONE with the house and then we can FINALLY relax and enjoy it!!

Last week we took a much needed vacation to visit my Mom at her beach house in Cambria, California. We took many walks, read many books, did some shopping, saw beautiful sights and just relaxed and did nothing.
Aaron, Jeff, and I took a tour of Hearst Castle 5 miles north in San Simeon. What a beautiful "house" and location! I just can't imagine actually visiting the castle back in it's glory days. It must have been incredible.
Please check out some of the photos in the Cambria photo album.
Wow, I have my own website! I've often thought of doing this but just put it off for whatever reason. (Mainly time!) I figure this will be a fun way to post pictures and info to share with family and friends and a place to enter random info of my life.
I'm doing this on a trial basis so wish me luck!
