What's up?

OK, now I know I have been slipping.

What have we done since the last update? We went with Aaron and Jennifer, and their kids to the pumpkin patch on Saturday. We went to the cider mill, and boy was it commercialized!! Even parking cost $2. Pretty sad really, when you consider that they had very few pumpkins, and those that weren't smashed or going rotten, really weren't eligible for carving since they couldn't stand up straight.

Then we all came back to the house and let the kids play, ate some dinner, and watched a movie. Not a great movie, but fun anyways. Jason then offered to let all the kids stay the night (3 more girls and a boy), for a total of 7 kids. The sweetheart that he is though, he offered to sleep on the living room floor, so I could get a good nights rest. Remember, this was mid-term weekend, and I still had another test to take, but I wanted to get a little more studying in first.

Long story short, I took my test a few hours before the deadline and everything turned out fine, but I was fuming a bit that he took it upon himself to offer our house and everything in it for a bunch of crazy (cute, but crazy) kids. And two hours of hard-core test taking just isn't possible with that many kids around.

Kylee is going to Oregon with a friend this weekend to see High School Musical on Ice. She is super excited, and so am I. I think she is going to have a great time, and she deserves some time to hang out with her friend. The other two girls are going to stay the night at my parent's house, so Jason and I can have some time together (with NO kids). Pretty neat, I must say.

That's all for now, time to get girls in bed.

Hello! I hope you enjoy your well-earned kid-free weekend. You deserve it after the sleepover and the stinky test.

p.s. We've been really disappointed in our favorite pumpkin patch the last few years too. I've resisted going in protest - but we still need pumpkins. I'm not going to get away with NOT buying them.
