The Everyday kind of post

When we get bored Eva asks me to take photos and the kids play. But here are some pictures.

He is a yeller now.

They are growing fast. I don't seem to take many of Alexander now that he is in school all day. I will have to fix that

fall carnival

We went to Alexander's school's fall carnival on Friday night and it was fun. I LOVE seeing all the little costumes. Eva even won a cake walk! So we went home with a bag full of cup cakes. Photo's are wort a thousand words so here are 6,000 words:

There he is with his teacher

Jamison was a lion for the evening

They had so many fun little booths!

Here they are waiting in line for the cupcake walk

It was so much fun. I really love the fall and all the fun things there are to do with the kids.

Fall Colors

We don't get many fall colors here so we went and looked for some. Here is what we found

The next one is a picture of the fire damage from the Las Conchas fire. Or at least part of some damage. Look how close it got to this house!
Happy Fall! Halloween is in 2 weeks! Time is flying way too fast.

Daniel's Birthday

Daniel doesn't like to celebrate his birthday. This year I asked him what he wanted to do and he wanted to go up to the mountains and see some fall leaves and trees. So we packed a picnic and it was really fun. He took a half day at work and we went up to the Jemez mountains. There was a little creek and everything.

We had a really great time. Happy Birthday to Daniel

Balloon Fiesta

This year balloon Fiesta week was pretty rainy. But we still went and had a lot of fun. We got a treat and got to go with Daniel and some of the people he works with on a FRIDAY morning. It was a lot of fun. The kids absolutely loved it. We layered them up and they were not cold the whole time! I only got a few shots because only a few of the balloons inflated. However we started a new hobby for the kids. Collecting Balloon cards. Like baseball cards except for the balloons. We had hot cocoa and cinnamon rolls and it just felt like a perfect fall morning. Here are some pictures:
It was raining so Eva's hair went nuts
They both wanted pictures with the cow and this was as close as Eva would get.

We were VERY lucky because two of the ladies Daniel works with wanted to hold Jamison the WHOLE TIME! He LOVED it and it made the event really easy for us. Probably the easiest balloon fiesta we have ever had (there were not a lot of people there either because of the rain)
I don't know what they were doing here
We got some much needed rain but it was sad to see it come on the one week a year that we don't want it in New Mexico. But It was fantastic. The strange thing was the temperatures were really low like in the 30s and 40s and then the next week mid 80's. I guess you never know with the weather.

Where have we been

Wow I have not blogged in so long. Life just gets so busy you forget. Sorry. Here is a little recap of the last month We had Balloon Fiesta, Daniel's birthday and then just the every day. Its been great. I have been doing a few projects too. Oh and now I am going to be writing a play. Any tips there would be appreciated. Anyway here are some pictures of the everyday life here at home while Alexander is at school:

Jamison can fit in all the cabinets! He likes to go in there and shut the door. He is every energetic
Eva was in timeout for 3 minutes. She was so tired she fell asleep on the chair!

These guys love to get in boxes and play. They also like to play in closets.

I will update more later. I hope you are all well.
