November 4th

Sometimes waiting for the kids to get out of school is a long experience.

We also learned that Jason likes My Little Ponies.  Duncan was not amused.

November 3rd

The snow began.  It looked nice then.  Now it's piled up to my waist. 

October 31st

Tori and Samantha were Goddesses.  Duncan was Castiel.    Gotta love my kids.  They still like to dress up and if it was acceptable I think they would Trick-or-Treat for the rest of their lives.

More October 30th

 Duncan had a doctors appt that day to check his blood pressure.  He was 130/80 in July and in October he was 90/50.  Swimming does a body good.

Jason doesn't understand Halloween.  He doesn't ever want to dress up and this year it was even worse.  With herpes all over his mouth and a weeks long fever he really didn't want to do anything.  This was Brett's idea of having a "costume" without one.

October 29th

Tori received her award for Science student of the month from Mr. Wood.  He said the reason he awarded it to her was that she was always positive, and even with her bad eyes she still pushes on and doesn't complain.  Her grades are outstanding.

October 28th

Jason somehow contracted Herpes.  No, I'm not surprised by this.  The boy puts everything in his mouth.  However, it was miserable for him.  He had canker sours all over his mouth.  He was pretty much out of commission for about a week.

October 26th

Child Family Fun Day.

It was our last day at Lagoon.  It was Frightmares and Samantha didn't want to have anything to do with the haunted houses.  There isn't one picture of her in this bunch.  Jason was sick, and so Brett stayed home with him.

This picture was of a whinny Duncan.  I strangely wanted to have him wait for the rest of the family before we went into a haunted house. 

This is the crew that went through the haunted houses together.

I love this picture!!!


Duncan wouldn't stick his head through the hole far enough.


It's always nice when the crew will help support your head.

 Duncan had to help Max.

 Duncan is at this phase where he thinks he's really funny.  He has to call attention to himself everywhere.  I do love the photo bomb in the back though.

October 25th

Duncan had his first swim meet this day.  He did pretty good for his first time, but he was so nervous he threw up after it was all over.  =)

October 24th

Jason had an appointment with Dr. Muntz.  It was a follow up to see if we were able to clear up his sinus's.  He was doing much better and hasn't had much of a problem since.

Tori got to go to flute lessons.  She enjoys this time with Deeann.  It's fun to see her developing a new talent.

Jason loves his ipad.  It is something that is hard for us to live without.

October 23rd

Crazy hair day is always so much fun.  Samantha actually lets me do her hair.  Although, it's not what I would say is a cute hairstyle after I'm finished.
However she always looks fabulous after we take it out at night.

October 22nd

Jason doesn't sleep. already know that.  One of the few things that used to put  him to sleep was Rock Band.  He likes the moving colors and music.....I think.  Since Rock Band isn't a "thing" anymore we went to my parents house and recorded some for Jasons Ipad.

When Jason doesn't sleep it makes life hard for everyone.  He's not like Duncan, Tori, or Sam who I can say, "Sorry, don't wake me up."  He has to be watched almost all the time.  When he has a sleepless night the ipad is a God send, because at least he will stay where that is.  He also jumps on the bed, so if Brett tries to "sleep" it doesn't happen.  I however sleep through just about anything...except for Jason's asthma attacks.  So I can kind of get some sleep.  It's more like I'm in a half state of sleep.  It's not my favorite way to spend the night, but it's possible.  Just watch out the next day if I can't get a nap.

Duncan is a video psycho

The rest of October 21st

Tori called me after school and asked if she could go to her friends house.  It does this Mama's heart good when my girl has good friends.

Tori was given the Student of the Month award for Science.  She was so excited to see this letter.

Jason wears us out sometimes and we do the same for him.  He put the pillow over his head as if to say, "I'm done with you people!"
