Some of you may have already heard about this or are already doing it. My friend put a post up about how they bought all their sons Christmas presents for $16. She uses Swagbucks she earns from using the Swagbucks search engine powered by Google and I have already earned 5 Swagbucks in just a couple days since signing up. I put it as my homepage so I will remember to use it. You can also earn bucks through refering people like this.
You can trade in swagbucks for Amazon gift cards which really add up!
Thanks for using my link!!

Assortment of fall pics

This is an assortment of pics of neighborhood dogs, the 105 lb. choc lab puppy and the shnauser. The kids love all 6 neighborhood dogs of the 8 houses. This also includes pics from our recent park picnic and some of 4 1/2 month Alex who is almost sitting up and is rolling like crazy! Growing up fast!

Halloween 2009

Here are our pre-Halloween costumes trying to decide what to wear from all of the costumes we have been given or bought at after Halloween sales.

Pumpkin carving! Leah and Brianna willing to get slimey.

My brother, Joey and his wife, Crystal joined us for Halloween. After they left today, all I've heard is, "why did Joey and Crystal have to leave?"

Here is our family shot before going trick or treating. Brianna was a ladybug, Katelyn was little red riding hood, Sam was Spiderman (even though he has no idea who that is), Leah was a clown, and Alex was Winnie the Pooh. The next picture is of the kids and their friends Caroline and Cecilia who live near us.

You might think this picture was of Halloween but it is actually today, the day after Halloween wearing some chapstick she got from a neighbor. She is not a subtle makeup user.

And this could be Halloween since Brianna is dressed as a bride. She wears this EVERYDAY!
Here is our cookout at the neighbor's house. We had a great time. We have the best neighbors!

Here are the pumkins the kids decorated. We had a daddy, mommy, and five baby pumpkins.
