I am sorry I have been missing in action. I haven't blogged about Thanksgiving or my visit to Utah, Christmas, New Years or the visits from our parents.  Trust me they were all wonderful and the best times we have had. We are also working on purchasing our first home so I have been jumping through all sorts of hoops getting that going. Been super busy, but one day I will pick up the slack again and blog about it. But until then, just trust me that it is going swimmingly! Hope it is all going well for all of you.

I know this is late and out of order,but here are our Halloween costumes. Bub was Brobee, the little green one, from Yo Gabba Gabba. Soder was Mr. Clean and I was a dust bunny. I was originally going to be Mrs. Clean and wear a bald cap, but when I put it on instead of looking bald I looked more like a condom head, which I thought was not the best look for me! So my dust bunny costume took me, literally 30 minutes to do. I was way proud of myself an very happy to get to eat my hair that much! I loved it!


Last week, Bub and I headed down to Utah for a week. It was so wonderful to visit everyone and Bub had such a great time with all the attention everyone paid to him. There was even a day of snow, although I have the feeling Bub is more comfortable with the rain of the northwest!

Sporting events abound

During the last month, I have been to two professional sporting events. I organized an "unofficial fall office party' for my work at the Mariners Games and I also attended another Sounders game. Both events were really fun because we sat where the 'real' fans sit, in the nosebleeds for the baseball games and by the south end of the stadium for the sounders game. 
My boys watching the Mariners

That is Bub's way of saying 'quit taking pictures of me, dad'
 I posted some of these pictures to my facebook, and I apologize if you saw them there, but I am still impressed with what the stadium does for the Sounders. It is the most impressive dedication by the fans I have ever seen at a sporting event. CRAZY!

Thanks for inviting me!
The were both really fun and it just makes me wish I could afford to go to these events all the time. One day, One day.......

Zoo Birthday

Peguins are the best!

For my birthday, my boys took me to the zoo. I love the zoo because of all the animals (duh) and the fact that our nearest zoo is really nice. I don't feel bad for the animals there because their habitats are really nice (I know they probably aren't as nice as the real thing, but hey, they have to be close to the next best thing) It was a great day with lots of animals and a great time for everybody.

Who doesn't love a merry-go-round?

Absent minded

I am sorry. I have been absent.  (again) I know that this has been my excuse as of late, but it is what it is. I barely see my husband, and so unfortunately, my blog is a few rungs below that on my ladder of life.  Anyways, enough with the apologies. I have been busy with many things. And I promise that this weekend I will post lots and lots about them all.

The paternity test is IN!

This summer I have heard more people ask me, "Where does your boy get his blonde hair?" And even though it is hard to believe that my son's father is not Daniel Craig, Brad Pitt or Jude Law here is undeniable proof that Soder is the father. Way back in a different time, called the 80's, Soder actually HAD hair. And when that hair completely occupied his entire head he looked like this....
And this......
Keep in mind we were children of the eighties
 So when Bub looks like this:
Now you know where he gets it from.
