Fishing Fanatic!

While we were at the lake Shannon and Shane managed to do quite a bit of fishing. Epic Fishing! Shannon said it was the most exciting fishing they had ever done. Friday they pulled in around 75 fish and Sunday it was OVER 100!!!

Nacimiento Lake here we come!!!

Well this is a map of the actual lake. It looks like a dragon. The place where we will be camping is way up on the hill. It is quite a hike to get from our campground to the lake. I will try and take lots of pictures and post them. This lake is actually a lot of fun on jet skis, but it is way too cold right now for my blood. There were a few guys out there last year on jet skis. Hopefully this summer we will be able to bring the jet skis back here! This trip we will be bringing Shannon's bass boat. The guys go out fishing early every morning (brrr), and in the afternoon (usually just before dusk). They really have a lot of fun. I think we will probably try and take the boys out for a boat ride a couple of times also.

I do not think I will have internet access while I am gone, so no updates, but I want to wish every single one of you "HAPPY THANKSGIVING".

See you Monday!

Happy Birthday Ryan!!!

The Throne
This is the chair the birthday child gets to sit in to open their presents. Look at King David, sitting on his throne!
Blue & White Hair
You can kind see the white on the tips from this angle. I love this picture of Skyler. . .too cute!
All The Kids
Ryan, the birthday boy is the little boy in the front with the blond curly hair
Well, we went to Ryan's birthday party yesterday and it was GREAT FUN!!! They had slides, jump houses, and inflatable obstacle courses. The best part was parents could go too! They had two different play rooms each with three different inflatables, and then a party room with tables and a giant throne for the birthday child to sit in while they open their birthday presents. I will totally consider this place next year for birthday parties. Shannon and I both thought it was way better than Chuck E Cheese. More contained.

It is freezing here today and it is a no burn day. We have been having a fire for the past week or so but yesterday and today are no burn days. I would hate to get a fine for having a fire. I guess I will have to turn on the heater or put more clothes on!

Shannon went to get the oil changed in my car. We will be taking both vehicles to the lake. I will have to tow the boat. I think as soon as he gets back with my car he will go over and get the trailer so we can get started on getting it loaded up and ready to go. Hopefully he will be able to wash it before we go. It was pretty dirty the last time we went camping.

Well it is a pretty quiet day around here today. Too cold outside to do much but watch movies and play. The boys are pretty mellow (knock on wood!) Just hanging out watching Scooby Doo.

I think I will curl up with a blanket and my book (and my puppies) and save my energy for later today when I will start packing up the trailer.

Happy Sunday,

Happy WaHoo Day!

Well, it is Friday again!
Only two more working days and then I am off to the lake for the Thanksgiving holiday for six days!!! I am pretty excited. We are going to try and bring the trailer home this weekend to get it cleaned and packed up so that we can leave Tuesday afternoon/evening and we will wake up Wednesday at Lake Nacimento.
Today was pajama party day at David's school. They were having new blinds installed in their nap room so they had a pajama party in the cafeteria in the afternoon. They got to wear their pjs all day to school and watch videos in the afternoon instead of taking a nap. Skyler was so jealous that he didn't get to wear his pjs to school.
Tomorrow is Skyler's little friend Ryan's fifth birthday party. We are really looking forward to his party. It is at a place called Pump It Up. I have never been there, but from what I understand it is a huge room with bounce houses and slides and we get to play there for a couple of hours during the party. They will also have pizza and cake! I will try to remember to take the camera and get lots of fun shots.
We took the boys to get hair cuts tonight. Skyler had the lady put blue and white gel in his hair and his dad liked it so much he bought the blue gel to bring home. I will get a picture of the blue gelled hair this weekend.
Happy WaHoo Day!

Sick Ward. . . . .

Seems to be at my house.

I got a call yesterday that David wasn't eating his lunch and then the school called back after his nap to say come pick him up, he has a fever. We were able to get him into the Doctor's office and they gave him an antibiotic.

We woke up this morning and Shannon was throwing up. David didn't seem much better so we dropped him off at Sharon's house and he hung out with her today. It looks like he might be getting his molars. Big bumps in the back of his mouth. He seems to be in good spirits right now, but he goes back and forth. He will probably go back to Sharon's tomorrow. We are pretty lucky to have such a good friend who cares about our family!

Hopefully everyone is on the mend. Time to get everyone looking toward getting in bed and getting a good nights sleep.

I will keep you posted. . . . .

The Best Day Ever. . . .

Over 24 hours of Spongebob Squarepants! It started last night at 8 (or 9) pm and has been going on ever since.
Neither of the boys had school today. I had arranged for a babysitter for the day, but David got sick last night (3am) so Shannon and the boys stayed home together and celebrated "The Best Day Ever".
David is now feeling better (hasn't gotten sick since 8am), but Spongebob is still on our TV. Hopefully the maddness will end soon!!!
It was a pretty busy week. We got David's fall pictures from his school. They turned out great, and hopefully we will get Skyler's pictures soon and I will send them out to everyone.
I think we are going to try and take the boys to see the movie Flushed Away tomorrow as long as David continues to feel good.
Boy oh boy I am tired. Grateful it is Friday.
Off to bed for me!

I think Isabel is just the cutest Minnie Mouse in the whole world! This is a great picture of her. Thanks Amy for sending the halloween pictures. It sure does look like she had a great time.

I am pretty glad this week is over. Shannon is out of town this weekend, and I am looking forward to enjoying a relaxing and fun weekend with the boys (ha, ha, ha!)

I will keep you posted.

Wow, I feel like I really didn't get any good pictures of the guys last night. We all kind of got a late start, David wasn't feeling 100%. I gave him some pepto and he seemed to feel better. They didn't go out trick or treating until about 7pm and they stayed out for what seemed a really long time for them (about one and a half hours). They came home with bunches of candy, most of which is now hidden. I did let them each have five pieces last night. The first thing Skyler did this morning was run for the candy bag. He got a couple before I was able to put it up. It was funny, there did not seem to be as many people out in our neighborhood, or at least ringing my doorbell!
I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is three weeks from tomorrow. Time is flying by. I really need to get going on my Christmas shopping. Wouldn't it be cool if I could have it all done by Thanksgiving!!! Send in your requests so I can start working on my list.
Love ya,


Baby and Coco decided to take it easy and not go out trick or treating!
