Gnats, gnats everywhere!

So apparently I have fungus gnats on all my indoor plants. Wonderful since I have 50 plus potted plants. So I have moved them all outside and am off to the store to get those horrid hanging sticky traps and some natural gnat killer. Any suggestions?

Movin' On Up!

Well Luke officially got the new job he applied for. So how better to congratulate him than by nailing him with silly string?! We decided to hide in the hallway when he came home from work. Needless to say, he was very surprised! Congrats babe! I love you!

Election 2012

I love the idea that I can follow the election results online (without commentary) while surfing pintrest and listening to Pandora. Just FYI, living in America rocks, whomever gets elected.

All Hallow's Eve

Well Halloween is finally over. It always makes me a little sad because I love seeing the kids' faces when they get to trick-or-treat. And lets be honest, I love to decorate for Halloween!

Now on to the costumes!

So this year Luke and I went as Camp Crystal Lake counselors and it was great! We have never used blood in our cosutmes before. (Yes I know my husbands legs are very white. But seriously... why wouldn't they be? He doesn't make it a habit to wear short shorts!)

Korbin decided he wanted to go through my Mother-in-laws old costume box and he found the dinosaur she had made for my husband when he was 5. He was so excited to wear it!

Since we are going to Disney World in a few weeks, I have been stocking up on princess dresses so I don't have to spend top dollar at the park. Back in May, I went with my Mom, Grandmother and Sister-in-law to Brownsville TX to visit my cousin. While we were there, we hit up the "mexican" flea market (I don't call it that, my cousin does!), and found a wonderful lady who handmade the most amazing princess dresses. They were only $20 a piece! So we bought Minnie Mouse, Cinderella, Belle and Snow White. Because Emma is obsessed with Minnie Mouse right now, we decided to double the dress and use it for Halloween!

Happy Halloween 2012!

A little update...

As you may have noticed... or not... my blog is getting a makeover. Please bear with me as I keep trying to make it easier to navigate and more interesting to read. I have been very busy crafting and planning for our upcoming Disney Trip so we shall see how fast this goes. Thanks all!

The dog days

Did you miss me? I know I sure missed you. I find that the summer months are usually quite a bit busier than the winter months, and therefore, I do not have time to spend in cyperspace (if you will). Right before I started writing this blog post, I checked my facebook and I had not been on in 11 days! And in this day in age that is unheard of. So, here is our summer in a nutshell (or a barage of pictures).

Our Vacation to Branson MO
Mini golf across from the hotel

Emma and Mommy

Korbin and Daddy at Silver Dollar City

Seeing Noah at Sight and Sound Theatre

Well it looks like it is only going to let me post these pictures for now. I will do some adjusting and post again tomorrow. I have to get caught up because Korbin's first day of school in Wednesday!! YIKES!

AWANA Cubbies

Tonight was a big night for Korbin. He finished his first year of Cubbies at AWANA and there was a big celebration.

We went up to the church where he got his Cubbie Bear patch for finishing the book and knowing all of his verses and a certificate as well! After the awards were passed out we saw a magician from Hutchinson and Korbin really loved that. He said when we left "Mommy, I wanted to see a magician." So I said "Korbin we did see a magician." and he promptly responded "No that was a girl! Girls can't be magicians! I want to see a boy magician." So apparently my son is sexiest... who knew.

But seriously, I am so proud of him and all the kids in AWANA. He worked really hard and I am so happy that the hard work paid off.
