Capulin Afternoon Part One

On the halfway bench, its for those that have to rest from exhaustion. Christopher thought he would have a asthma attack so we rested for a few minutes while Ashley and Sierra walked ahead.

Halloween 2014

 Boys decided to recycle costumes this year and wear old ones with different themes. Daniel wore his Death costume I made him two years ago but this year he was Scream. Christopher wore Daniel's Soldier costume I made three years ago, he was a War Soldier this year.
 I found some wound tattoos for Christopher to use.

  His injuries looked real!

 I found rot tattoos for Daniel to wear, you really could not see them under his costume but I could not leave him out of the experience of having some really gross tattoos.

Ruby even got in on the creepy act!

Pool Pets

koi fish
Just to see how gross our 18x4 foot pool gets or does not get over the winter, I am letting ten fish live in it until spring! All 10 fish are about 1 inch long. I'm interested to see how much they grow and how many make it to spring without becoming bird food.

The Many Masks of Christopher

 Playing with mom while dad goes shopping.

I asked him to show me what a head ache looked like.

When in Hastings

 Had to stop and get a coffee for Christopher from the Hardback Cafe, yes I know coffee for a 8 year old, I'll explain. When he is having a small asthma attack it helps to just sip coffee instead of using his inhaler (inhaler causes jitters) he will only do it if he needs it, he hates coffee.

 While we are there we always try to have a little fun.
 A little cream for a cat!
There is just too much fun to be had.
Did someone say food..... or foot

Homemade Grape Jam

One small bucket of grapes
My  I Valiant Grape vines produced a lot of grapes this year. So much I feared them going to waste and decided to make jam with the whole lot.
Five and a half jars by my vines.

A Steal Of A New Dresser

While out shopping for a used dresser for my sons I found one for myself!
   Isn't she a beauty? Solid wood and takes three people to move it, its heavy!

 Lockable middle door if needed.

 I love these small drawers.

 All Drawers are dove tailed, this girl is not falling apart.

 Large drawers lock!

 The sides of my dresser are just as nice with the detailed panels and those awesome legs.

But, my most favorite picture of my find is below.

You would have thought I stole it at this price, I even asked the guy twice if he was sure it was right.
So, my boys got my old one and I upgraded!
