Happy Birthday To my Husband

Today is Tyler’s 28th birthday.To most people they’ll think there is nothing special about someone turning twenty-eight but for me today is more than just my husband’s birthday; today marks ten years of us celebrating together!!!The very first holiday or special occasion that Tyler & I celebrated together was his 18th birthday.And I have been there for every birthday adventure since.It makes me happy to sit and think about the decade of memories we have made and our lil family we have created.For the last ten years we have spent every birthday, holiday and everything in between with each other.

Seriously.Tyler was a chubby, pimple face teenage on a path of destruction.He had a take no prisoners jerkiness about him.Few people know that he’s like an orger, I mean Tyler is like an onion- filled with multiple layers.But in a very short time period I re…

Halloween 2013

Above- The kids were Monsters from monster's Inc Bellow- our two happy pumpkins for Halloween 2013

At the beginning of October of last year a co-worker of Tyler’s gave us a Monsters Inc costume but it was too large for Issac.I tucked it away & in September I pulled it out to discover it fit Issac pretty well.In my head, I instantly wanted Josie to be the character “Boo” to match Issac’s “Mike”.Online the costs of Boo costumes were close to a hundred dollars so I turned to Pinterest and cut and pasted different parts of different ideas and created my own costume!I started with a grey hoodies from the goodwill ($3) and sewed a section of extra fleece I had around to add a skirt to the hoodies.Then I sewed some purple fabric I scored on clearance for $6 over top the hoodie.After that I use…

Thomasson Family Farm and Pumpkin Patch

Tuesday October 8th was your typical Washington morning; cold, foggy and a forecast of nothing but rain.However, a tremendous amount of our Darcy Read Memorial Preschool parents and students bared the weather, bundled up and strapped on their rain boots for the annual trip to the Thomasson Family Farm.We gathered up at the entrance to the farm just before ten am and were greeted by one of the farm’s owner’s- Mrs. Thomasson.She welcomed us and explained the variety of activities we would enjoy; first up was the Hay Ride.

The farm attendants occupied the children with a fun song; “This is a hammer, this is a nail.When this tractor’s moving keep you pants nailed to a bail.”The farm’s fields were very muddy from the rain so they drove the kids in a figure eight around the parking lot.The children loved the ride but were ready to attack the main event:The great pumpkin search.The farm was expecting many field trip groups that day and they had prepared by lining up a bunch of preschooler si…
