Pumpkin Festival

It's "heaby"






Playing with his bubble gun from the festival



Last weekend, we went with Famous' mom to the pumpkin festival in Hartsburg. It was a beautiful day for it...even almost hot! But at least there had been no rain and we have to park 4 miles away! We had fun eating, drinking and browsing the fun vendors booths. They had some neat stuff down there. I don't think it was as crowded as it was last year. Chase had a great time and enjoyed riding in his wagon...at least until he saw any dogs! But I think he is a people watcher too...loved to just watch everyone around him.
He loves to be a good helper and that goes for everything from sweeping, to loading and unloading the dishwasher, cooking and hanging up laundry.
He is a total "jabberjaws" lately and comes up with some good ones. I will list a few for posterity sake!!



  • In the car when the sun is shining in his eyes, "Mommy, the sun sees me"
  • Trying to stack the newspaper in a pile and I asked what he was doing "Mommy, it's my job"
  • When it is time for him to go to bed and Daddy is downstairs, he stands at the top of the stairs and yells "Daddy, it's bedtime"
  • When Nana calls the house to talk to Chase "Nana, what you and KK got for me?"
  • When walking to my scraproom "Mama, I going to your office to work"
  • He has a tough time with constipation lately, so I sometimes try to get him to drink or eat something that might help him like "If you have some apple juice, it might help you poop"....so the other day, he said "mama, can I have a popsicle, it might help me poop"...smart kid, huh?


    I know there are a million more of these...I will have to start writing them down for sure!

    We don't yet know what he is going to be for halloween...he has several of his own ideas....a dinosaur and transformer are just two. So I guess we shall see!!

Saying Goodbye


Today, we said goodbye to Myth (AKA bubba chubba and kitty too), our first "baby". He had a wonderful 15 years of life and had been with us since he was 6 weeks old. I can still remember the day I brought him home! Famous was not pleased at all, but they quickly became buddies! He was always such a sweet cat, loved to snuggle and snooze with me and love to wrestle and fight with Famous.
We will miss him terribly. Rest in peace.
A few pics of him...have more but will have to go searching.
Napping with me and Baby Chase
He always climbed into our suitcases when we were packing to leave for somewhere.

Taking over Baby Chase's toys!

September happenings

The months just completely seem to fly by these days. I haven't been back here since September 10th...oops!
Since then, we had a great time at the Lake for our Annual Stokes Lake Weekend. The boys had such a fun time together and they really played so good too. Just a few minor squabbles over the same toys, but all and all they did great. It was very enjoyable for us to spend time with everyone.
Doesn't he look like he is on his way to high school :)
Loving on Baby Harper...they would just not leave him alone...they are ready for him to play with them!!
On the run!
Watching for ducks
Best buds...I think Beth got a better picture than I did!!
The last weekend in September we went to Oktoberfest in Old Munichberg with Nana and James and Jaime. Chase had lots of fun playing the different games and riding in the fire truck. He won enough tickets to get some books and a pinwheel, so he was happy. He actually got into the bounce house, which is a big first for him, but essentially froze when he got inside. Maybe next time bud!! I got a cute video of him dancing to some German music too.
Holding his ticket and waiting in line to play a game
Spinning the wheel for prizes

Riding in the fire truck...he probably had all the switches and buttons messed up when it was all said and done.
His newest dance video is below....:)

We have been spending time blowing bubbles at Gamma's lately after I pick him up at the babysitters. He loves to chase them and pop them and run into them with his head too. Crazy kid!
A video of him "chase"ing bubbles!!
