halloween 09

On Halloween gayle came over and brought the kids by. Maddilynn was a fairy and Lilly was an angel and i let william borrow the costume i think we guessed it was from lillo and stitch i had thought it was from winney the pooh but i got schooled and was told it wasn;t by one of the chidren lol. Kids know there cartoon stuff. Some how i am missing a pic of Ben and i don't even remember what he was. One of our step sisters made Gayles costume. I say one cause i forgot which made it. But she did a really good job. gayle looked so cute. I gave out candy to the kids. i always enjoy handing out candy to the kids and seeing there reaction some are so funny. I remember one child sayng to her brother how sad she was sad and that she wanted that same candy adn how this was a cool house and so i decided to chuck the candy at her across the yard. I am thinking she probably thinks i am crazy but she got the biggest smile and her face when she picked it up off the ground. I usually dress up for work but this year i didn;t but the year before i was a kitty cat.

She told me of a story where here bathroom had been like that and her mother in law came ad finished it up for her(very nice). So i decided it was time to finish the bathroom and so i did!

Aug 2009 remembering the good times at the Cabin in McCall, ID

Our family had a cabin that was in the family since i can ever remember. It was in McCall, ID. Our cabin was even on the lake side it was just a 5 min walk to the beach or in the winter time you could slide down the hill to the frozen lake. I think my grandpa bought it before i was even born and it was a tiny one bedroom( i do remember) and all us grandkids would sleep in the little small like shed like thing that had like 4-h camp like bunkbeds. I remember it seemed so cool cause we got to sleep in different buliding then the adults and could stay up all night playing games and stuff. We even had an outhouse, lol! yes for real but there was in door plumping also. When i was like 7 or so they tore it all down and rebuilt a 2 story cabin. It was 4 bedrooms w a huge loft that had 4 queen size bed and one twin(that is where the kids slept). We had so many memories as a family there, some good times. This past fall the family decided to sell it as in the cost of it was getting to be to much w the taxes and stuff. And the family grew too big to share it anymore, there was just to much family invloved. So sadly no more memories in McCall at our cabin. I have heard the people are already starting to remodel it. But we went up there in Aug for the last time and i will share those last memories w you guys.
So i went up to the cabin w Lisa(pregnant w twins), Andrea(Pregnant and visiting from AZ) my mother, Rebecca and her Friend Maggie. SO it was a pretty good time expect for all the hormones coming from the two pregnant girls. I just learned to say at the beach all day and either lay out in the sun, swim in the lake or play in the sand w the kids. I was so happy to just stay at the beach ad watch the kids all day i will tell ya! We stayed up there as i believe for many days during the week. And i really enjoyed playing in the sand w the kids(especailly Andreas since i don't get to see them anymore since they moved so far away). I will post some pics here of the kids i did not bury them in the sand they did that on there own!

pain in the tooth..march 09-almost the end of the year

In march of 09 i started having the worst tooth pain that turned into be a nightmare. I was on vacation in AZ when the first sign of the pain came on. I think my sisters thought i was a grouch but you try having the worst pain you ever felt in your mouth. I wasn't a happy girl till i got some pain killers and an antibiotic on our trip. Over a period of many months i lost count how many times they redid the root canal..4..5..6...and after i went to a specailist i found out that all along i had a forth canal in the back molar. but when i went one time to make things worst i got this sore in my mouth that took over 2 weeks to go away and it just added to the pain i was in. It even left a scare in my mouth on the gum tissue. I had to miss so many days of work. I would say this was my worst experience for 2009! So i thought i would share this gross pic w everyone. One pic is from one day and the next is from the very next day. Sorry if i grosses you out! lol
