October 15, 2009: Monterey Market, a grocery store in our area, piles all of their pumpkins up in a humongous heap and then lets kids climb around on it. The boys and I met up with Whitney and her kids for a play date there and the big kids scrambled around on the pumpkins while we chatted.

October 16, 2009: After school, I took the kids to Costco to stock up on diapers, raviolis and other supplies. When we finished getting all the stuff we needed, I let Wyatt check out all the toys, including this big horse.

October 17, 2009: My bright-eyed, two-toothed baby!

October 18, 2009: A big bunch of fellas piled up on the couch to watch Mythbusters. We are huge Mythbusters fans in this house. What better way to get your kids interested in science than to watch people blow things up and smash cars?

October 20, 2009: Were you wondering if that fork is still on the wall? After checking every day for the last two months it finally disappeared. I so wish I knew what happened to it.

October 21, 2009: I’ve been working my way through the Twilight books for the past few weeks. I thought the first one started off really slow, but just as I started complaining about it, the story started to pick up and I was suddenly engrossed. I’ve since read the second and and third books and while I enjoyed them over all, I still think Stephenie Meyer writes like she gets paid by the word.

  • I agree with you Twilight comment. I also found the majority of the first book to be slow, then was engrossed, and midway through the last book I was so sick of it I couldn't wait for it to end but needed to read it through anyway.
    I sooooo don't understand some people rereading the series over and over and over! Ack.

    Anywho, my crockpot season began this week with Taco Chili. Yum!!

  • SO true about the Twilight books, but they are so wonderful to read!!

  • Hey, since you're liking Twilight and I know you also enjoyed the Sookie Stackhouse books, you might like the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs — they're about a car mechanic who can turn into a coyote, and her flirtations with the local werewolf pack. Silly but fun (although unfortunately they take a turn for the angsty in the later books). The first one is “Moon Called” and I found it highly enjoyable.

    I've also been enjoying Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden series, about a hardboiled PI in Chicago who also happens to be a practicing wizard. The first book in that series is Storm Front.
