Family Time.

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Today’s blog is about family time. I have 4 kids and 3 grandkids. All of my kids live here in Arizona except for one. He’s in the Army and is stationed in a different state. I cherish family time when we can all get together. It’s kind of hard because they all work and go to school. So everyone’s schedule is always different. We have to plan ahead of time so we can all hang out as a family.

We went to Macdonald’s Ranch on Sunday Oct. 1, 2017. We have lived here in Arizona for 17 years and never even visited this place until today. DSC_0168-1

You walk in and the first thing  you see is the horses to the left of the property. They had a lot of horses. We might have to come back and go horseback riding when it gets cooler. This place was like an old western town with all its old farm equipment and farm decorations. It was pretty cool. They had a lot of activities for the kids which I definitely loved. The grandkids had a great time and loved it.

They had a farm animal petting area. Which included goats, sheep, miniature horses, donkeys,  pigs, and chickens.

We went through a little kids maze. The kids did pretty good trying to figure out where to go and how to get out. They were having lots of fun.

Finally we took a hay ride to the pumpkin patch to pick out our pumpkins. They had little tiny pumpkins to huge monster pumpkins.

The Little Joys In My Life

Hello everyone! I just want to brag about the little joys in my life. They are my 3 grandsons. My twin boys have kids. Joshua has 2 boys. Anthony who is 6 and Jeremiah who is 3. Tyler has 1 boy, Sebastian who is also 3.

IMG_3257Anthony has a smile that just lights up. He is smart, funny and always talking about something. He likes Pokeman, Minecraft and playing basketball. He likes to dance to the Just Dance videos on You Tube and he’s actually pretty good!  He doesn’t know it yet but were taking him to Disneyland for his birthday in November.

Here is Jeremiah. He is such a happy kid always has a big smile. He’s had a speech impairment but that doesn’t stop him from talking even though we don’t know what exactly he is saying. He does have a lot to say. He has been seeing a speech therapist and has made big improvements. He’s even learned how to use sign language for a few things. He loves bubbles. It’s so cute when he try’s to follow Anthony and starts dancing to just dance videos as well. He likes yogurt and fruit snacks. He know exactly where to go when he comes over to grandma’s house.

Sebastian is 3. He is the baby of the group only by 7 months.  He definitely has character and he’s smart and has the biggest smile that lights up your heart!  The last time we saw him in person was last year. My husband and I went to visit them for Thanksgiving. He just started talking when we were visiting.  Now when we face time he talks a lot more. Sometimes we have to ask my son “what did he say” lol.  He loves anything that has to do with cars. He has a huge collection and lines them up on the floor.  He is funny when he get to talk to his grandpa.

It’s going to be a great Christmas this year. I get to have all my kids together and all my grandkids together.

 

These are the little joys in my life!

Time With My Grandkids.

I love when my husband and I have the grandkids for the weekend. Our house is so quiet now a days. It’s good to hear little voices and looking at them and just so full of love. They absolutely fill my heart with so much love.

We took them to the park the other day. They have so much energy I had to  keep up. Then after about an hour we took them to our community park where they had a splash pad and we just let them loose to play in the water. They had a great time. Take a look at the pictures I took.

DIY Halloween Pails.

Hello! Welcome back to my blog. I wanted to share with you all a project I did for my grandsons. I made them custom halloween pails for their candy. Here is what they look like.

 

I bought the pails at Hobby Lobby for like 4.00 each. I then used my Cricut Explore Air to design and cut out the vinyl. I love how they turned out. The kids loved them and I’m that they can keep them and use them for as long as they can.

Halloween With the Grandkids.

It’s been awhile since I have posted on my blog. Well I just wanted to share a few photos of my grandsons. They spent the weekend with us and we had plans to keep them busy.

Saturday we took them to an outdoor market to go trick or treating. We got them all dressed up in their costumes. Anthony who is 5 was a pirate and Jerry who is going to be 3 in December was also a pirate. They look so cute in their costumes.

We arrived at the market and started trick or treating. There were a lot of kids all dressed up and walking around. It was nice to see all the families with their kids out. Well after walking around for about 30 minutes Jerry was getting tired so we put him in the stroller and he fell asleep. Poor little guy! Anthony was having a great time and he collected a good amount of candy. He was excited to get home so he could eat some.img_0358img_0359

 

I  have another grandson who lives out-of-state. He lives in Fort Campbell with my son andhis wife.  He is 2 years old and his name is Sebastian. My son sent me pictures of Sebastian in his costume. I really miss him but that’s ok were going to go visit them during Thanksgiving. I’m s excited and I can’t wait!
