Koaster Moaster

Most of you knew that Koa had a little "incident" recently so I just wanted to post a little picture, mostly for Daddy, to let everyone know that he's doing great! This was the next morning and he was ready to get the freak outta that place. Thank you so much to all our friends and family who offered so much support during such a scary time. We feel truly blessed to have such awesome people in our lives.

Pumpkins Tacos and Rice Bowls

Yeah, you read me right. I said pumpkins, tacos, and rice bowls. Now before I proceed any further I need to issue another one of my disclaimers. I can "yo quiero taco bell" with the best of them so let's not get it twisted ya'll....but does anyone else find a pumpkin patch a strange place to find the exotic fusion of taco's, rice bowls, and funnel cakes?!?! So weird! I'm still sitting here, 6 hours later trying to wrap my little tiny peanut brain around it. I suppose I should back up a tinge. I escorted my 4 little darlings to Siemer's Farms (and yes my immature brain may have giggled slightly at the name of this place but only for a second.....a wee baby second) to meet up with Gramma, Papa, Auntie and Uncle and of course...... SMILERS! We love pumpkin patching every year and were excited this year to go with our family and ALSO to try a different patch this year because we had been going to the same one for the last couple of years. So off we went to Greenbluff, land oh the pumpkin patch, to find the perfect pumpkin. First of all, the traffic up to this place was insane! Who knew so many people wanted to experience all the joys that pumpkins can bring on the same day as us! But despite the crowds we fought our way through the peeps and found our family and then proceeded to the P. Patch where I learned that they wanted 30 cents per lb of pumkiness......say what MOFO! 30 cents per lb! That was going to be a huge hellz no. So I did what any self respecting ghetto ass poor Mama would do. I took lot's of pictures of the family at the patch and then took our happy ass's to Walmart for the $3 pumpkins BABY! After the photo session we headed off in search of some carmeled apples to end our outing but what do you think I found instead!?!?!? That's right, tacos.....and rice bowls. I'm still so confused and very tired from last nights "Making the Squad Dallas Cowboy's Cheerleaders" marathon extravaganza last night with Nene, that I'm a tad delirious so I'm not even going to try and sort out this madness in my brain. But I will however give you our 2009 P Patch photos! I do have to say that we live in the best part of the country!

There's only one way to say this.....Uncle Ryan LOVES getting his picture taken.....and after a couple hundred pictures of JUST HIM peaking out of cornstalks, making funny faces to the pumpkins, and cartwheeling through the patch I finally told him that I needed to get pictures of other people.....he finally, and very begrudgingly, let me take some pictures of Smiley.

This is Koa's "zombie" face.....he likes to walk around the house telling me he's a zombie and he's going to eat my brains. Disturbing I know.....

And there you have it. We missed you SMW and can't wait for next year when I can drag you up there and we can pick out a pumpkin, eat a taco, and wash it down with a rice bowl! YEEHAW!!!....Over and out....

Once upon a time.....

Once upon a time there was a girl. And every time the girl would put on her knockoff Ugg sheepskin boots from Costco, a baby unicorn was born. Who knew that 34.99 could bring so much joy and happiness into the world. Who cares if they are ugly, non-water resistant, and soooooooo 2005, I. Don't. Care. I love them anyway to the deepest parts of my soul....or sole if you really wanna go there but I'm going to pretend I didn't. I first encountered these cushions of delight when I got sucked into the UGG world 5 years ago and paid well over a hundred dollars for a pink pair. Yes, I said pink. Shocking I know. But color wasn't important. What was important was the yummy deliciousness my feet felt once inside. Those dear sheep that gave of themselves for my happiness. Their sacrifice will not go unnoticed. And let me tell you....I have bought a pair every year since. I Eventually switching to the Costco brand because let's be honest, it's the same damn boot, but also SMW would have sh!t fit if he knew I paid that much for what he thinks are the ugliest boots to ever exist year after year. He's even nicknamed them my UGGLY boots. I say he just has a UGGLY attitude. LOLOLOL....oh my goodness. Must get some sleep. Anyway, the morale of this story is........sheep are awesome.....and boots are awesome........and when you put them together you get......awesome........and baby unicorns.

Cheerleaders are people too....

I have to keep telling myself that.....especially since my two traitor daughters have decided that they are die hard cheer girls. Not that I have anything against cheerleaders...but seriously.....where did I go wrong......I was pretty sure I had Kai convinced to do soccer but she was starstruck with the basket tossing, cheer bows, and crazy cheerleader smiles that I knew she was gone forever. So I suppressed my bitter rage and traipsed my happy ass to the Valleyfest parade with two boys in tow to cheer on our cheerleaders. Oh....where is my life going.....

The Tooth Fairy is B*!@ch!

Look at the could you forget to leave this precious face the money that she so rightfully deserved! You are a horrible mother....err.....fairy and should be caned in a Singapore jail. Good thing I rescued you and threw a dollar under Kai's bed and told her she must have knocked it down while she was sleeping......I'm getting sick of bailing your ass out......until next time TF....I've got my eye on you....

Nerdschool alert!

May I present......Kai and Isaiah's first day of school portraits.......yes I children ARE highly gifted and have been enrolled into the Whitehill University gifted program for being the two smartest kids in the school. However.....I'm not quite sure why Isaiah's shirt was painted purple even though it was grey and said "Army Fort Bliss" but we've learned that we don't ask.

The first week of school we did a unit study on the book "How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World". The kids had so much homeschool nerdy fun that they couldn't stand it!

Here's all our ingredients for the pie we made.....including real cinnamon sticks from a Mexican Market where the guy at the front counter told me a joke in Spanish and thought I totally knew what he was which I just smiled and laughed.....oh yes....I am one with my Hispanics.....

Um.....we ate the pie before we could take a picture of it but I did manage to take this shot right before Koa dived in......the kids did a great job!

And what says nerdy homeschool fall fun without a trip to the apple orchards!!!! Woooooweeeeee!!!!!!!!!!

Anything Koa can stab with a stick is A-ok with him!

And who doesn't like to be buried in peas.....

We were going to buy caramel apples at the orchards but.....they didn't have any made. WTF kind of apple orchard doesn't have carmel apples readily available at all times for fine patrons such as myself! RIDICULOUS I SAY! So we went to the store and bought our own carmel apple stuff.....TAKE THAT APPLE ORCHARD FARMERS!



Oh the sugar rush.......might have gone into Anaphylactic shock after all that sugary goodness....but it was well worth it......oh yes it was.


Yes, it's that time once again....what time your ask.....oh.....just THE BEST TIME OF THE YEAR!!!!! FALL BITCHES!!!!! Oh yeah......I love me some cold ass rainy weather! Chalk it up to growing up in Seattle, but there's nothing better then waking up to a cloudy stormy day in the fall. I even decorated our homeschool room with paper leaves hanging from the ceiling which I refuse to take pictures of because it will confirm my ticket to Nerdsville USA and I just can't accept my status yet. I will however share our pictures of the first day of school. Isaiah couldn't process the concept of first day of school pictures when all he had to do was walk downstairs but he did manage to muster a pretty decent nine year old "This is the stupidest thing ever" weakass smile which I thought was pretty cute regardless. you gotta love early morning harsh ass light pictures.
Then there was the Diva who poses any time a camera is even remotely in the vicinity....the best is when she gets done watching a Toddlers and Tiara episode and I catch her practicing her "sassy" walk.......LOLOLOL oh man....need to find my camcorder for evidence. WORK IT OUT GIRL!!!

Then you have my sweet lil Mama Girl......don't you feel sorry that such a cute innocent child has me for a mother.....MwAHAHAH!!!

And last but not least......the devil himself.....KJW.....I have no idea what this smile was all about but it's....well.....interesting....gotta love this kid.

Well there you have it.....Back to School pics.......Cheerio....
