Christmas is only 4 months away! Holy Cow! Is it just me or did summer FLY by?!?! Especially August. It seemed just a few days ago we were at the cemetery for Alans bday (Aug.4th) and now all the sudden its the 25th already. I cant even recall whats gone on this month. All my weekends have been booked and Im exhausted. Having fun but so so tired. And my next few weekends are booked also. Sheesh. NOW...Christmas is creeping up on me and I have no idea what to ask Santa for (wink) maybe a truck (double wink)!!!

In the next couple weeks I wanna spend as much time as I can with my best friend who is moving to Alaska. Im soo sad shes moving. *sniff sniff* And theres a family campout and then a friends family campout. Phew..thinking bout all this makes my head spin.

Sage has officially hit the terrible 2's syndrom. Mind you me...shes isnt 2 years old yet..**sigh**!!! Shes into everything and can reach everything. She throws a mother of a tantrum and is very specific about things she wants. But at the end of the day when she kisses me out of nowhere and gives me a hug...or when she snuggles next to me in bed and looks up at me with those adorable green eyes..my heart melts and I forget about the days troubles. Funny how that happens.

I got a tattoo 2 weeks ago. Yeah I realize most of you dont agree with tattoos but me and my best friend (who I mentioned earlier) got a symbol that means FRIENDS FOREVER. It was important for us to do something since she is moving soooo far away..did I mention shes moving to ALASKA..ugg!?!?! Anyways I was really nervous about getting it done on my foot because I heard that it hurts really bad. Well I got it done and it didnt really hurt at all...kinda like an annoyance instead...like someone poking you. It took maybe a total of 10-15 minutes and it was finished. I think its really pretty!

Okay! Im back on the blogging mode. I had to go private for a while to deal with an issue with some spammer posting some mean comments on here. Now I approve your comment before it gets posted.

So go ahead and comment. :)

Another issue we have been having is our dang pet squirrel..


Now there are 3 of the dang things and they are eating all my plants. I had 3 sweet potato plants growing so big and now they are just twigs. We had 12 pears growing on our pear tree and the squirrels ate all but..

Next, SCHOOL STARTED! Can you tell Im just a little bit excited. Im not sure whos more excited...me or the kids! The kids were counting down the days and kept asking when they could get there backpacks out and ready! Aubreys teachers name is Mrs. Corbin. She seems really nice and Aubrey likes her. Aubrey also is lucky to have her cousin Madison in her class with her. (DEAR TEACHER: These girls like to talk and talk and talk and talk. THE END) lol
Weston is also enjoying his teacher, Mrs. Mender. He loves being in 3rd grade and having some friends in his class too! Im sure they both will do very well this year.

Tomorrow is Alans birthday. We are doing a small graveside memorial for him today! Sure do miss that boy!

Yesterday, we wanted to do something fun and different with the family. We were gonna go up to the Pinal mountains but that plan fizzled. So we opted to go to a museum..well that was to expensive for what it was..SOOO then we decided to do lunch at Petes Fish and Chips. Well that couldnt work since they arent open on Sundays. Well then we decided to try the new place by our house called Costa Vida. Well we pull up and they arent open on Sundays either. Taco Bell was our end result. It was very tasty though! ;) Then Aubrey requested we go inside Petco and see the animals.

We were in there for over an hour.

Sage especially had fun! We started out looking at the fish and boy you should have seen Sages face and her excitment. It was so cute! Next we looked at the birds and even got to hold one. The bird was mocking us and showing off. Very funny! Maybe someday we can get one.

SOMEDAY... not now!

Pictures will come soon! Ive been using the laptop usually and we dont save the pictures on this computer. TTFN
