Teen Are Entertaining, That's For Sure!

We adults got a little goofy too --we had to stay awake until 12:30am!

Some of the GREAT costumes at the dance:

There are our kids...sitting... LOL Dills was dancing later on. We've got Marilyn Manson, Michael Jackson and some really cute "cow people" I called them that, not them.

That funny bunny needs his scary jester mask

Halloween Dance

AG and I chaperoned a dance last was cute, LOVED the costumes. We were stationed in the hallway watching that nobody wandered into the halls, I am grateful.... that music! I am officially ancient.
Jr & Juno made some "candy sushi" to sell at the dance & worked hard to put it on. I think the kids loved it? Even Dills said it was THE BEST DANCE EVER...and he never says positive things about events like this one.

The rice krispi-treat with all sort of candy "sushi" actually tastes really good!!

A "fancy" version to share with Kelly --the guy who makes "Real sushi"

I have to go workout...I have many more cute costume pictures to add when I'm back --I dressed at "Jr's annoying mom" and AG as MS's annoying mom...

It was late, we dressed in sweats.

I can't explain it, but Annie the 100 pound bouncer's costume really freaked me out!!

This shot is for Robin! LOL T was enjoying the dance a lot...took a little nap at one point!

Backwards Inside Out Day & a Concert Too

I made it another 1 hours 45 min on the cardio machines at PCR...had to get home to catch the kids in their outfits before they changed. Somehow Dills thought "inside out-backwards" was an excuse to dress like a fisherman in a white t-shirt was from Hollister, but it's inside out & backwards! And his favorite new sweats, a lovely black pair of FCA (Fishing Company of America) pants that were his father's from a fundraiser years ago.

The puppy eats like she's starving....Help anyone with how much to feed her?? I don't want to overfeed, but she acts like she's starving all the time, I swear 2x what goes in comes out! She's hyper, happy and playful now, everyone is having a lot of fun with her.

Tonight's big even was the band concert. Yes, poor Rama, it's that season yet again. Now there are 3 bands --5th and 6th, Jr. High and High School.
Poor AG she had to do paperwork before the band concert because she's that busy :(

Dyl played trombone & percussion too!! We were all very proud.

AS did a fantastic job on trombone, this group of 5th & 6th graders has only been playing 1 quarter and they were quite good.

Several of the XBox playing teens are also talented musicians:

Rama is lucking out...I couldn't find the link to show Dyl playing the's only about 5 seconds long. I'll post it if I can figure it out.
I only made it 1 hour 15 minutes at the gym this morning and have yet to accomplice much else. I better get moving and get some projects done. Will go back to the gym later :) YES, I really do enjoy cardio. I wish I enjoyed the weight room and swimming as much!

Monday,... Monday....

The first mess that didn't come from her body!
Manderzz assembling our puzzle. We found the 12 pieces and they were thrown in a cauldron with all the other families' pieces. We'll see if we win on our TV program Flash! Unalaska on Wednesday night.
Silly kid, looking up "ghost" in a huge scientific encyclopedia.
I LOVE THIS PICTURE, goofy kids!
She says this is a hippie outfit. There is a colorful fringed vest from a halloween costume 5 years ago that is hippie-ish. The rest looks normal and comfy to me!!
I guess I dress like a hippie everyday according to my daughter as this is about my daily wardrobe!
Real food, and a sit-down meal. I promise I'll do it again tomorrow night kids.. we ate on the run again tonight as everyone's schedule was different.

We had a REAL full sit-down dinner with 4 different items last night...time gets away from me and we end up having something small like tacos that everyone grabs when they are home. T is out on patrol but all 3 kids + Juno and I were all here yesterday!
My husband emailed, he worked on deck yesterday and is sore today heheh...he better do that more often...can't go soft! He's been doing it for 25 years, he'll deal with it..
I need to get better about dinners, I know it's important to all eat together. We certainly do better when Dad is home.
I walked on the treadmill for almost two hours this morning! Then took AG out to lunch. She bought me lunch on SAT, so I owed her, love salads from Mag Bay...almost as much as amaretto sours (not for lunch!)
2 of my kiddos dressed up for spirit week today, they've never really participated before, I was very shocked! They looked cute as their version of hippies.
Manderzz and I went to the library yesterday and tonight too. We did a scavenger hunt to be entered in a drawing for a big basket of Halloween goodies (there is a Dobby mask that Manderzz really liked) and a $100 gift certificate to enjoy everyone's favorite brunch!! It was fun and we delved into shelves beyond the TV DVD series!!

Ohhh and yes, Bella is getting curious and busy! This reminded me of last June at the Great Wolf Lodge when my sister left her sweet kiddo Jack with me and Jr while she and the other 3 kids went to the water slides. Can't leave babies alone for a minute!!

The Busy Weekend that Won't End...

I slept in, missed brunch, darn it. But I ate Grand food 2x yesterday, I think I will be OK without MORE!
Manderzz and I grabbed the puppy and CB and walked "Glass Beach" and then for a bit on Summer Bay Beach too. It was so nice nobody wanted to go inside. Not a lot of glass, but lots of sunshine and fresh air.
Manderzz made CB some special cookies and he gave her a FANCY pair of sunglasses, he gave Jr some too --Manderzz' are so cool, Jr's make him look like a weird John Lennon wannabe. I'll get a picture when he's feeling more photogenic.
We ran into Dan Y, and Linda with her dog Molly on the way home near Tuitakoff Field. Molly doesn't care for babies! Funny dog.
Dan was playing with his giant kite, for kite boarding?? Straightening the cords or something, Bella was enamored!

The party last night was fun! I introduced AG to Amaretto Sours --blended not on the rocks and she EVEN liked them!
We sat with Linda (all 3 of us have mystery husbands who are hardly ever in town) and Dede and her husband who's gone almost as much...but is in town this trip.

Manderzz and I are off to the library-- Cora has a contest to win $100 to spend at the Grand and a bunch of Halloween stuff...we have to give it a try! Will miss Lauri ...GET WELL!!!!!

Our pumpkins need attention!!

CB gets to hold Bella for the 1st time; Manderzz looking sooo cool in her new glasses.

Bella got cold and climbed into CB's jacket

Summer Bay was gorgeous today.

Bella really liked Dan Y and she wanted to make friends with Molly...Molly will give her a chance in maybe a year.
