This morning I was up and out the door by 20 to 9am! This is early for me--to actually be dressed and out the door this early is amazing! LOL Anywho, Denise, Shana, Lauren, Blake, Aleigha, and I all went to Moses Lake to the Goodwill to shop during their "Spooktacular Savings" event that started at 9am. They had TONS of costumes and decor! I wasn't sure what Jake was going to be this year, so I wanted to see what there was during this sale. Sure enough, I found 2 adorable costumes that will work for Jake. We found a Spongebob (thanks to Shana) costume that Jake will most likely wear for his preschool halloween party, and we also found a green dragon (thanks to Lori) costume that he will wear for actual Halloween (that way he stays nice and warm!). I was pretty pleased with the finds. I also found some cute Fall decorations to put up this year. I am really wanting to decorate this season. Jake is really excited about Halloween, so I think that is what is helping me have the desire to decorate. :)

Well, I think that's about it! Off to go find out what the plan is for the day!


Well, last weekend, Jon and Jake went geocaching with David, a friend of Jon's through Genie. They hiked up Beezley hill. They had a good time, especially Jake! He kept right up with them all the way to the top! Actually, he kept up with David all the way to the top! Jon got sick almost to the top of the hill and, so, consequently, he had to stop. Luckily, the geocache was across the trail from where he was. David and Jake thought that it was up at the top, so they kept going. Anyways, I just wanted to share the pictures that they took of their "treasure" as Jake put it! LOL Needless-to-say, he was one pooped out pup!!

(10-16 points) You are Garfield:
You are very comfortable, easy going, and you definitely know how to have fun but sometimes you take it to an extreme. You always know what you are doing and you arealways in control of your life. Others may not see things as you do, but that doesn't mean that you always have to do what is right. Try to remember, your happy spirit may hurt you or others.

(17-23 points) You are Snoopy:
You are fun; you are very cool and popular. You always know what's in and you are never out of style you are good at knowing how to Satisfy everyone else. You have probablydisappeared for a few days More than once but you always come home with the family values that you learned. Being married and having children are important to you, butonly after you have had your share of fun times.

(24-28 points) You are Elmo:
You have lots of friends and you are also popular, always willing to give advice and help out a person in need. You are very optimistic and you always see the bright side of things. Some good advice: try not to be too much of a dreamer. Dreaming too big could cause many conflicts in your life.

(29-35 points) You are Sponge Bob Square Pants:
You are the classic person that everyone loves. You are the best friend that anyone could ever have and never wants to lose. You are very optimistic and you always see thebright side of things. You never cause harm to anyone and they would never not understand your feelings. Life is a journey, it's funny and calm for the most part. Stay away from traitors and jealous people, and you will be stress free.

(36-43 points) You are Charlie Brown:
You are tender, you fall in love quickly but you are also very serious about all relationships. You are a family person. You call your Mom every Sunday. You have many friends and may occasionally forget a few Birthdays. Don't let your passion confuse you with reality.

(44-50 points) You are Dexter:
You are smart and definitely a thinker...Every situation is fronted with a plan. You have a brilliant mind. You demonstrate very strong family principles. You maintain a stable routine but never ignore a bad situation when it comes. Try to do less over thinking every once in a while to spice things up a bit with spontaneity!

Now don't spoil it! Have some Fun!! Change the subject of the email to what you are and send it on!

Just some random stuff...

So, it's been a little while since my last post. Not much has been happening around here. Jacob's being the typical 3 year old: wants his way, tantrums, hitting, jumping, no naps, constant need for my attention, pretty good big brother (when not doing first 5 things listed); and Aleigha is turning out to be quite the girl: almost walking, screaming fits, tantrums, cute as a button.

Jon is almost done with the third to his last class of his masters! YEAH! He is SOO ready to be done, but is still pluggin' away.

Let's see, one thing that is new: I was called to serve in the nursery about 3 weeks ago. I think this will be a nice change for me. I can also bring Aleigha, which is GREAT, since I really haven't been able to go to class anyway--she is WAY too noisy! It will be interesting to see how well Jake will do with me being in there. Aaand how well Aleigha will do....we shall see!

I will be posting some new pictures of the kiddos sometime soon...just took some new ones over the weekend...

OH! I just remembered! Aleigha cut 2 new teeth this weekend! Saturday morning she woke up with her two front top teeth peeking through! Hopefully, we will be getting some restful nights in for a bit! *fingers crossed*

Uhh, I think that's about it.
