Fun at Staheli Farm

Last saturday we had the oppertunity to go to Staheli Farm. The kids enjoyed it. It was fun to get out of the house and do something festive. Ryder loved the animals, and the train ride. He didn't know what to think of the giant jumping pillow. He loved the slides and how you ended up in a pile of corn. Rustin enjoyed taking in all the sights and watching his brother. I tried to get some family pictures, I don't love any of them. I have no idea how we are ever going to get anything good enough to hang up in the house... It is hard to photograph children.
This is Ryder and Rob riding the train.

attempts at family pictures!

Well we had a fun family day at the farm, Ryder still talks about it!

Halloween Baby fashion show!

I pulled out the Halloween box today. I found several costumes all close to Rusty's size. So what could I do, except have a baby fashion show?
This is Rustin in a buzz light year costume

Rustin in a skeleton costume. isn't he a cute skeleton? He is a little tall, his legs stick out quite a bit.

Little monster Rustin

A cute little penguin (sorry I can't seem to change it right side up?) so enjoy this cute picture at a sideways view?

So What do you think? What costume does Rustin look best in?

I may be a little on the crazy side, but I have always loved the dentist. Growing up I looked forward to that apt every six months when I had the oppurtunity to visit the dentist! I love getting a new tooth brush and travel toothpaste. I love the feeling in my mouth after a teeth cleaning. I just love the whole experience. Well, Once I got married, we did not have dental insurance, so I did not go to the dentist ..... for years!! And it made me so sad. But Dental visits are expensive!!

Rob's Current Job has amazing benefits. I was able to go to the dentist. I was so excited! Ryder was able to come to, and go to the dentist for the first time! We both had a great time! Although, I do have 6 cavaties, but I havent been to the dentist in 4 1/2 years and have had 2 pregnancies (I hear pregnancies can be hard on your teeth and gums) Anyway including the deductible plus 6 cavaties after insurance its just under $80 bucks, thats way better than no insurance which would make it hundreds!!

Well Dental appointments aren't the only apt a lack of insurance has caused me to put off. I have also needed to go to the eye dr. My eye sight has gotten continually worse the last couple of years, or 4 or 5?

Anyway I went to the eye dr, got new contacts, (a year supply) had a full eye exam, and only paid $40 for all of it!! And now I can see! I love insurance! I had to switch eye dr's because Dr. Crofts office doesn't take my insurance. The good news is I now go to an eye dr that is less than ten minutes from my house. so it's a win win!

Rob, Ryder, and I were all able to get flu shots for free due to our new insurance also. This month has been full of appointments!

Rob's job has some great benefits and perks. The hours are quite the adjustment. And the wage is about 1/4 of what we were making when he was a mechanic and we weren't making a ton then. I am becoming an expert at trying to be frugal, though! If you have any ideas on how to be frugal or how to make money feel free to share your knowledge! if only he had better hours, better pay, plus the current perks..... ha ha !! I guess you can't win them all! I will still continue to do hair and try to get more clients, and Rob is continuing to do mechanic work on the side to help us make money.

I am loving being a mom to my two cute boys! I have so much fun with them daily! They have such differing personalities, but both so fun!

All Ready For Church

One sunday a couple weeks ago we were all ready for church early and the boys looked so cute. I decided to try to take some pictures. It is hard to get them both to look at the camera and smile and stay sitting in one spot, at the same time. So- this is what we got!
