I haven't posted here in FOREVER ... but hopefully with the summer here (last day of school was yesterday) and changes in the next year (with Easton transitioning to a new school) I will find time to post.

Our current new adventure is becoming a part of a CSA for the summer/fall through Blooming Junction.  I'm very excited that we picked up our first CSA basket yesterday.  It was filled with all kinds of fun things (carrots, kale, lettuce, strawberries, etc).  Easton and Todd have been into the strawberries and snap peas already.  I'm most excited to try Kohlrabi with the recipe they included.

The rest of our time is spent with Easton being in baseball.  Baseball is pretty well all consuming.  He made the Midget - American team this year and we are really enjoying watching him grow, especially as a pitcher.  The boys won a wood bat tournament last weekend down in South Salem.

Well, there is a little update for now.  Hopefully I will go back to weekly posts about what is happening in our lives.

First day of Kinder!!!

So today was the first day!!!  It was a late start so he only went from 10am - 12:10pm.  It was a good day ... the highlight was the popsicles!!!  Tomorrow's adventure is the bus ... we will see how that goes.

A December to Remember (6 - 9)

Dec 6th:  another school day and Easton was in a crabby mood when we got home ... didn't really do anything holiday related.

Dec 7th:  We listened to Christmas music on the way into town to do Christmas shopping.

Dec 8th:  We celebrated Christmas with Grandma Cassie and Aunt Ann ... we went to lunch at the Cheesecake Factory and then came up to our house to open presents and spent the evening.

Scout also arrived today ... nothing like showing up late and drunk ... darn Elf!

Dec 9th:  Rode the Polar Express out of Hood River up to the North Pole ... Easton had a great time.  We went with Heidi, Al, and Lotus and Heidi's parents (Dean and Linda).  Afterwards we all went out to dinner.

A December to Remember (5)


Day 5: Homemade Crockpot Hot Chocolate (from a pinterest recipe - next time I will go with the way my mom made it with sugar, milk, cocoa on the stovetop!)  Anyways here are a couple pictures:

Hope everyone else had a great day!!!

Today we also made some salt dough ornaments that Easton helped cut out with cookie cutters and we baked them.  We will be painting them soon so they can be added to Christmas presents!

A December to Remember (1 - 4)

So my goal for December 1 - 25 is to do something fun and holiday related with Easton ... here is what our first four days looked like.

December 1 and 2: We put up Christmas Decorations.

December 3: We made Buttered Rum Meltaway Cookies and Marshmallow Stirrer Straws for Hot Chocolate later this week.


Dec 4:  Easton colored Christmas color pages ... it was a long day with Work and School so we didn't do to much this evening.

Halloween Pics

Halloween is over ... but here are the pictures:

Spiderman (aka Easton) was pretty much lived in his costume from Saturday (the first day we Trick-or-Treated in Tillamook) until Wednesday (actual Halloween) ... my thoughts were why not ... at least I'm getting my moneys worth! :)

Easton - Fall 2012

I can't believe its been a year since I have left a post on this page.  I figured it was time for an update.  Todd took Easton out for an "photo session" today ... Todd was practicing using his new camera and getting ready to do Easton's photos for Christmas pictures.  Here are a few of the funny ones ...

Some of these could have turned out great if Easton would have cooperated!!!  Ohhh well, I guess he did the best he could.
