Christmas Tree Fun!

We always go and cut down our tree, it is something Jeff and I have done since we were just dating. It is such a blast now to take Logan. This year he picked the tree, well he insisted on the one we got :0)
We had some friends join us this year, they loved it and said it is now a tradition they will do with their children. Thier first is do Dec 28th

Gosh, it looks like they are standing in the middle of a forest not a Christmas tree farm, LOL!

Circus Fun!

We went with my friend Tania and her daughter Julia to the Ringling Bros Barnum and Baily Circus this past Sunday. It was a lot of fun and the kids seem to really enjoy it. Tania and I were both excited also neither of us had been to the circus since we were kids. Logan like all of the shows that he has been to could not take his eyes off of it :0) At times some skits seem to run a little long but for the most part it was a good show. It's always worth it just to watch Logans face.

This is a little off subject but my little man is writing new words all the time by himself. He wrote "i love you to" today back to me when I told him I loved him, he called me in the room and showed it to me as his response, amazing :0)

Funny!

My little man is the funniest. While driving we smelled a pretty bad smell and he says yuck what's that smell, egg salad! I laughed so hard, is he funny or what.

This & That

Logan has a new baby cousin~ Gabrielle, she was born Weds the 21st. Congrats to my brother and SIL. I told him he was no longer Nanny's baby and he said oh yes I am and tell her that. Logan was funny at the hospital he would not get near the baby for a good picture, maybe when she is a little bigger.

Logan did his first Word search, it had 8 words in it and he found all of them by himself. He really does amaze me everyday :0) I thought that was incredible for 4 1/2. He is reading like crazy these days and he just told me this morning that he now knows what he wants to be when he grows up~ a teacher :0)

We had a nice visit with Busia, we haven't seen her enough lately.
Other than that we are very busy and have been on the go. We will be heading out for a Halloween party in a few hours, so I must go and get ready.

Preschool Update!

Logan is doing GREAT~ He LOVES school and if you ask him that is exactly what he'll say. The first few days were a little rough when I picked him up but we've had nothing but good days since He loves his teachers and I am so glad his regular teacher has been back since last week. Mrs. J told us on Monday that she loves this class and how smart they are. She said that she was starting them on the second half of the year curriculum because they are all so advanced. That really says a lot about the parents involvement I think.

I had a bit of a hard time figuring out what to do after I dropped Logan off at school, that lasted a whole 2 days. I barley have time to do anything, it's really only about 2 1/2 hrs, just enough time to do a few errands and then it's time to pick him up. It's really nice not having to drag him to the grocery store :0)

Fall is in full bloom around here and the color change is so beautiful. I sure am going to miss summer, more so this year because we really only had a few hot days. Our electric bill was a lot lower this year I'm sure because we had the windows open most of the summer. I think my heat has already ran more consecutive days than our air ever did between spring and summer, strange! We hit the cider mill last weekend with some friends and the boys had a great time. We had never went to this place and it was AWESOME, I think it's our new spot~ so much to do and very open so even with a lot of people I don't think it would feel crowded. Boy there is nothing like fresh cider and donuts, YUMMY!

I planted close to a hundred spring bulbs the other day, Tulips, Giant Daffodils and Grape Hyacinth. I can't wait to see them in the spring~ something pretty to look forward to :0)

We have been pretty busy and I am having a hard time finding time to blog so I may be going down to a once a month update, I'm still trying to figure it out.

Happy Fall~

Something Strange is Going On?

So my friend called me the other day and started telling me about this broom where her Mom works standing up all by itself. She said it had something to do with the way the earth was on it's axis right now. Of course I had to try this and it worked. I just did some Goggle searches for it and I found a couple of different things about it but not much. It seems like this is happening all over the country right now and some people say its because brooms can stand like that? I know my broom has never stood alone before so I tried it with my outside broom and it worked. Check out the video I took of it, even Logan got it to stand up. Whatever the reason is behind it I think it pretty cool. I just wonder how long this is going to happen for? So you readers out there try it especially you out of country readers try it with your broom and leave a comment if it worked or not. video
