Our Pumpkins

I just love carving pumpkins! This year we decided to just do faces. Last year we did paw prints and the Christian fish symbol. Our pumpkins are smaller than we usually get, so we thought this was best! Here are the results............

Deirdre and the pumpkins..............

Me and the pumpkins...........

Happy 10th Birthday Deirdre!

Well..............today my little girl hit the double digits! She is now 10 years old! I can't believe she is that old. We gave her the option of going to Olive Garden or seeing the movie "Beverly Hills Chuawa" (I know I must of misspelled it). She chose her favorite..........Olive Garden. She got roller skates and some dinosaur books and $20. Her party is this Saturday at Paradise Skate. So the roller skates will really be used this weekend! Here are a few pictures from today........

Deirdre asked me to make her a cake...............I think it came out very colorful!
With her roller skates...........
The dinosaur books from grandma!

Me and my little girl...............look out!!


Stay tuned for pictures from her party this Saturday! Should be great. Deirdre is looking forward to fun with her friends and family!!!!!!! Happy Birthday my "BIG" girl!!!!! I love you!

For Our Country......

This week at our Awana group and at church, we are having a Wall of Honor, It is for those who are serving our country whether it is over in Iraq or here in our own country. This is my friend, Martin Irons, class of 1992 from Antioch High School, fellow Explorer Scout and husband and father of 2. He is over in Iraq fighting for our freedom. However you may feel about the war, I am so proud there are those who are willing to go defend our country's honor. Martin is doing just that. Keep his family and his safety in your prayers................I know they are in mine and my families prayers. Thank you Martin!!

Martin Irons...................over in Iraq.

Deirdre's 4th Grade Picture

Just in..........Deirdre 4th grade picture. I love it, she looks so grown up! This has to be one of the best pictures she has taken at school. Before we know it, it will be her senior high school pictures. Oh my............I don't want to think that far ahead! Since she is my only child, this needs to slow down so I can enjoy her more!

Rainy Day at Apple HIll!

It is that time of the year again! Yes...........Apple Hill!!! On Saturday, Oct 4, me, Dan and Deirdre ventured up to Placerville to check it all out. With storm clouds and rain, we still enjoyed it! Deirdre fed goats, got her pumpkins and some apples. I got my fudge (like I needed it) and just enjoyed being with two very special people in my life!


Deirdre visiting her little goat friends in the rain......
I just fell head over heels for this little guy. Is he too cute or what??
What a trooper!!! Picking our her pumpkin in the pouring rain!

We tired her out.............LOL!!!

In the Hay Maze at Abel's Acres............yes in the rain!
Traditional photo...........every year we see how much taller she gets. Looks like she finally hit the 4 foot mark! Woo-hoo!!
Just for fun.........
Now I found this just cute. She did get a little miffed at me cause I didn't get all the cows.
And of course a picture with the horse............before it started to rain!
Hopefully we will get another chance to go back when there is no rain. Get more apples, actually buy my favorite kinds of pies and eat some good food!

Deirdre the Snake Wrangler!!

Most little girls are busy playing with Barbies, baby dolls, frilly dresses and things like that. Not my little girl! Her dream is to team up with Bindi Irwin (daughter of the late Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin) and wrestle croc's and wrangle dangerous snakes! So today after school I got a picture of her and her beloved snakes...........here they are............
Deirdre and her precious snakes...........seems like they keep multiplying!
I am so proud of her and her love for animals and even her love for the dangerous and deadly animals. Steve Irwin would be mighty impressed with this young lady!!
