Happy Halloween!

The kids were all dressed up to go Trick or Treating at Byerly's. They came home with a bag full of goodies!
Jameson was sure having fun carving out his pumpkin. Watch out it might be a scary one this year.
We finally made it to the Matvick's Haunted Barn party this year. It was a little chilly but these two were staying nice and warm. Harrison was lucky that Luke was so willing to share his blanket.
The other kids enjoyed a hay ride and lots of treats!

Halloween finally arrived and after a little pizza at the Moseley's the kids were ready for some trick or treating
And look who showed up at my door! Isn't he just the cutest little dinosaur you ever did see!
It was another great year filled with too much candy, lots of fun and no belly aches!

All I want for Christmas is my 2 front teeth...

It was a nice fall day until my brother knocked my tooth out with the rake handle!
Then the other one was so loose that my mommy just gave it a little yank and out it came. Hope the tooth fairy packed a little extra change for tonight.

A beautiful fall

This fall has been absolutely beautiful. Today Jameson, Harrison and I stopped at a different park to enjoy some sunshine

Jameson loved the park so much that he shared the news of a "New" park with his siblings and so they all had to check it out after school.

Canadian thanksgiving

Every year we gather our friends together and the Juliens host Canadian Thanksgiving. Nana Sue and Papa Warren come all the way from Canada for the event. Last year the party was moved to the Hopkins fire house due the number of people! This year was no different, the number of kids continues to multiply and leave us parents out numbered.
Harrison and Oliver Smith getting to know each other!
We were missing a few (Jameson) 
Silly faces from Gracie and Addie
It was another successful dinner with fun, friends and LOTS of good food.
Thanks Juliens

Until next year...

Ben and Trevor went camping for Ben's Birthday. They used Chris Dunn's river property so it was true camping. It got chilly but the boys survived and had a great time.
After they set up camp they went for a nice long bike ride
Yum! Enjoying dinner by the camp fire
All bundled up for the night
Warming his toes the next morning
The next day Ben and Trevor drove over to Middle Cullen to meet the rest our crew for cabin clean up. So we close the place up and say good bye to Middle Cullen, until next year....

He is 8!

Our baby is growing up so fast! I can't believe he is 8 years old already and so full of personality. He continues to be my serious, smart, so loving and all about the sports little man. So this year we decided to for go the big birthday party with way too many kids and opted for a fun night at Nickelodeon Universe with his 2 buddies Quinn and Jack.
I am not sure who had more fun, the boys or Trevor!  
They went on every single ride that twisted, turned and flipped them upside down. They enjoyed slushies and dinner and were the last ones to leave the park at the end of the night.
They were all smiles on the drive home. I would say the night was a success! Happy Birthday Buddy!

Afternoon snuggles

                  This is the best part of my "stay at home days"!

Grandpa took the kids to the cabin for the weekend. This was their first stop! I think Grandpa was looking for a little pick me up before he had to deal with these 3 for the next 24 hours. The kids had a great time and I think Grandpa did too. Grandpa survived with only one minor incident involving a scissors and little bit of Olivia's hair. 

Fall beauty

The Big kids went to the cabin with Grandpa and so Trevor and I went for a nice run followed by a warm cup of coffee. This tree was beautiful and we had to stop and take a picture. The leaves have been unbelievable this fall!
                                While we ran Harrison took a little cat nap.

Girls ( + Harrison) weekend here we come!! Harrison was all smiles as we wait to board the plane to California. Grandma, Aunt Kate, Great Aunt Beth and Cousin Alex, mommy and Harrison were all headed out to visit Great Aunt Maribeth and Cousin Erin. Harrison did great on the plane, he was PERFECT!
                Day trip to Old Sacramento
      Day trip to Muir Beach and Nicasio.


    From the beach we went to visit Shannon in her little town of Nacasio. We stopped for a little lunch and then drove up into the hillside to her place. I have seen lots of pictures but they don't do it justice. It is breath taking!
    Walking through her back yard. John gave us a tour of the vineyard he start and then we walk around to the barn they are refinishing. 
    It was so great to see Shannon and to meet her little guy Ben. 
Little Nolan was only 6 weeks old. He was so sweet and snugly. He was just tiny and it was so fun to see him and little Ali.
Thank you Grandma for dinner! Our last night there we all went out for steak and grandma was treating all the way from Fairmont. It was such a great week filled with good family time and fun. I loved my time with Harrsion. It is not often I get that much quality time with him.
