This Saturday we took Savannah to the rec center for some Halloween fun !!!
She played games ( they had one where they put a candy finger inside of chocolate pudding and the first one to get it with their hands won...she didnt like that game) and we ate and she painted a pumpkin....And she won her very first pet, a Beta that she named cuite. She was so excited, she even asked if fish had clothes....uummmm ok !!!
Here are some pictures... There is one of her and Eric with the pumpkins they carved.
I cant wait to take her Trick or Treating she is so excited....
Hope you had a good weekend.

Well I am ready for the weekend....
This has been a long week and I am glad it is over.
I rented a movie, Mr. Brooks, and i am going to curl up on the couch after the little one goes to bed and watch it. This weekend I need to do 2 things, clean my van and clean out the garage, we are having a birthday party for Eric next weekend and its messy, plus the other night when I was in there a centipede comes crawling out like nothing it was huge and I soaked it with bug spray, it took off under this cabinet we have out there and I couldn't find it but the next day he was laying in the middle of the garage upside down and dead....they give me the eeby jeeby's....
I also need to find a cop costume for work we are dressing up we always do themes and this year is cops and robbers. And thats about it just relax.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, if you are going out to any Halloween parties have a great time and be safe....I want to see some pics if you dress up. Eric and I were invited to one but I don't feel like going....What a party pooper I am...LOL
Have a good one

One of my biggest fears is FIRE !!!!

My friend called me this morning to tell me she was evacuated from her home last night in San Diego, Ca ... These fires are out of control, I would be so scared... Hundreds and hundreds of homes have burnt down, more then 250,000 people have been evacuated. I didnt want to get into it too much with her cause she was realy freaked out, she is a single mom with 3 kids and she is such a strong person i am so proud of her the way she has taken control of this. Would I just take my kids and go, would I grab things that are important, and at that point they gave her 15 minutes to get out, what would i grab...these are the kinda of things i didnt want to ask her. I am not sure what I would do. I guess have each one of my kids grab what is important to them, toys wise, sentamental things, clothes, and I would get photos, a trunk that I have all my momentos in and some clothes I guess. I guess when it comes down to it you gain composure and do what you have to do....
Fire has always been a big fear of mine, I remember when Josh was about 6 years old, and I was doing laundry, and I found burnt matches in his pants, I had a talk with him and he admitted to taking matches that he had found outside and trying to burn a plant. They say all kids are interested in fire, but it really scared me to think what could have happened. I called my friend Steve and he said that when he was small his mom took him to the fire department and told them that he had been playing with matches....So that's what I decided to do, I took him down to the fire department and the man that was talking with Josh was about 6 ft 7" or so, deep voice, he had us both crying, he showed a film to us about what could happen if a fire gets out of control, and then told me ma'am you make sure if you catch your boy playing with fire again you bring him back down here and you dont bring him to anyone you bring him to ME.... I was like Yes sir'...The film was kind of graphic and I think it really set him straight about fires, they then took him out on the truck and drove him around and let him slide down the pole that whole bit, so it was a good lesson learned....
Eric on the other hand when he was small he was in his bedroom and was hiding under then bed doing something and he couldnt see so he lit a candle, well that white cloth like material that is under the bed caught on fire and burned fast, he got so scared he went in and cuddled up with his mom who was sleeping, she woke up to the smell, got them out of the apartment but by then it was too late and the apartment burned down, he said he was probably 5 when it happened.....SO he is a little freaked out about fires too....
I hope my fire adventures are over and I dont have to go through something like that with Savannah, but Steve's advise was the best and I would do it again, I also advise my friends to do the same if something like that happens with there kids....
My friend is in our prayers and I hope she can return home safely soon, and I hope they gain control of these fires soon before too many more loose their lives or their homes.

Last night Eric and I went out for a couple hours to celebrat my friend Fernie's Birthday....Ya know we don't go out together very much and do things without the kids so it is nice to get around some other adults even if it is for a very short time.
Here are some pics

And Savannah has finally decided she is going to be sleeping beauty for Halloween, I have bought and returned a costume 2 different times, and told her this is it you can nopt change your mind again..... So this is what she choose:

Well fall is FINALLY here....
The last few days have still been in the low 80's but the nights are dropping down to the 40's and 50's....I am very much a summer girl and i love the warm weather, but this year I have to say I couldn't wait for fall. Savannah is not happy though,she loves to wear dresses and the last few mornings even with putting tights or leggings under her dress she is still cold. I bought her a new jacket and a sweater over the weekend because this winter is supposed to be a cold one.

The other thing is I am so ready to cut her hair, she is so tender headed and hates for anyone to brush her hair, and i refuse to take her out in public with me looking like an orphan, yesterday i took her into the salon and she was fine until she sat in the chair and she freaked out...she was also tired she didnt take a nap so that maybe some of the problem, i am going to take her again this weekend and see what happens, im tired of the fight every day. Eric will not be happy but he doesnt have to brush her hair everyday...I do!!! I'll post some pics if I get her to
Have a great day!!!

Well this weekend we went to the fair....I had a realy good time, Josh was working so it was just Eric, Savannah and myself and we met my friend Amanda their with her boyfriend and his son...I thought it was funny because his son is 3 years older then Savannah (and a boy at that) and he was scared of all the rides, but she loves them...I am so happy. Here are a few pics.....

Then we went to see Bucky Covington (any American Idol fans....) ya know he wasnt too bad, sang a few cover songs, Rvery rose has a thorn, some Pink Floyd (that shocked me) I only know a few of his songs but I had fun...Eric and Savannah went on rides cause she said it was too loud and Eric didnt care to see him amyway so he took her out.

Did anyone watch Rock of Love on VH1, I really liked that show and was so glad with the outcome, I like Jess and Samantha and when Jess one I was so happy......UNTIL the finale last night, it was the reunion show, and she was a total B***H......
I wanted to slep her right through the darn tv screen....So the whole show was ruined cause of her.....and I thought she seemed like such a nice person....
She just started up her own clothing line, she wore one of her shirts on the show last night, and I think she did the whole thing for publicity...little tramp!!!! LOL

Well hope you all had a great weekend....

I have lost several people in my life to Breast Cancer, my grandma, my great grandma, one of my dear friends mom, my Aunt Carrie....for the last 5 years I have volunteered to help raise money for this great cause..This year I am SO PROUD to say I was apart of breaking the national record for raising money for the Are you tough enough foundation. The record was at 90,000 dollars and that was raised by a city in Colorado. Las Cruces broke that record by a mile, we raised 225,090.47. All the volunteers went out on the field at half time and presented the check to the chairman of C4CR.....It made me cry...Every year I will continue to volunteer my time in honor of my grandma Pegs, my grandma Doris, Debbie and my Aunt Carrie and for all those that have lost their lives to this horrible disease.
Here are some pictures.

We also went to the Enchilada Fiesta on Sunday...they have it here in Cruces every year, they make the worlds largest enchilada....I didnt get any pics of that but got some of us hangin out there. We listened to an LA band that is all girls they are a AC/DC tribute band, they were all right.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
