Just a quick little post. As you may have heard Southern California is pretty much up in smoke. One of the fires are about a mile from our house, but we are not in imminent danger. The news is saying that the fires may not be contained until Halloween and that three of the fires may merge to make one huge fire. I hope that is not the case.

Here are a few pics from the "Magic" fire as seen from our house.

Thank you to all of the firefighters!

Better late than never/ Eye Candy Friday

I know it's late, but it has been a long one.

I am starting to feel better, but the voice, well, lets just say that it is here, but I can't cheer or give a WOOOOHOOO without getting a funny look.

K had a field trip on Wednesday and this was a result.

Have a great weekend!

It's all good/Eye Candy Friday

I think I am finally at the tail end of the cold...yay for me! But it will probably be several more days until I am back full force.

As for my sockpal. Thank you for commenting on my last post. I don't think you are a crummy pal, I just hadn't heard from you and was getting worried. Now I know that you didn't forget about me and all is good. I can't wait to see the socks I know you are working so hard on.

And now for some eye candy. I did this about two weeks ago but forgot to post last week.

the cure for a bad day

Have a great weekend!

winds of change

Every year around the time the weather changes, I seem to get a little something I wish I didn't, a cold. The thing is the cold is not bad enough to warrant me taking anything for it, but bad enough that I can't do all of my regular exercise type things, like running, biking, and playing sports.

One thing it does afford me is more knit time.


Though I finished these a while ago. It just took me a while to photograph and upload them. I should get better at photographing my fo's because I just got a remote for my camera which makes taking the pictures sooooooooo much easier.

Also, I am starting to get a little worried regarding Sockapalooza4. I haven't received my socks yet and am getting bummed. I did get an email from my sockpal around the time the socks were supposed to go out saying that they were almost done and would be a little late. That was over two months ago. What do you think I should do? Wait a little longer? Request a sock savior? Forget about the whole thing?

So proud

I think it is fair to say that as a family we are casual and dress up only when the situation calls. Now don't get me wrong we are not running around looking as though we don't care about our appearance, we just don't go all out all of the time.

I think B would like that to change though. A few weeks ago, I took the kids shopping for an outfit to wear to my cousin's wedding. After trying on the clothes, B tried to convince me to let him wear the outfit to school because, "I look soooooo handsome mom."

Well, I didn't let him wear the outfit to school. On Saturday he was so excited to wear the outfit he tried to put it on first thing in the morning. The boys looked absolutely adorable. Unfortunately we didn't get a pic of them.

So Sunday morning after breakfast, B asks me where his tie was. After I told him, he comes to the kitchen looking like this.

I can dress my self

And then he asks me to help him put the tie on.

I can dress my self

I couldn't resist.

Also look what I finished.
