My mom and I were hanging pictures in Ridge's room and all were of him as a baby. My mom said I needed some updated pictures but I didn't have any, and I was anxious to get it done. So I said hey Ridge want to have a little photo shoot, he said no, so I said I'll give you a cookies... He was a good sport and let me take a bunch of pictures but it was hard finding good lighting and background so I had to keep bribing him to let me take more.. By the end I owed him 2 cookies and a sucker but I got a few good shots.
"are we done yet mom.."
Didn't matter if I was done, he was!!
We are officially new home owners as of 11/6/13.. It was so nice moving on a holiday weekend and having an extra day. Daniel ended up working Saturday but he's superman and he was still able to get us all moved over, build a dog run, install a mailbox, build shelves in the garage and organize all the hiking gear and food storage, and in the evening he even hung pictures for me. It was amazing..
I with the help of my sister got us all(mostly) unpacked on Saturday, then my parents came for a few days and we did yard clean up, trimmed/cut trees and had a big fire. It was so exciting to roast hot dogs and marshmallows on our own property! I took Tuesday off of work and took my parents up to Bremerton to meet up with Daniel on his lunch break. Then Ridge showed them the bug museum, then we went to Mclendons my favorite hardware store in Belfair, the Chain saw place, and a cool antique store, it was lots of fun..
I love my new house and it has been so fun moving in and making it feel like our home. It's different living in the country vs. the city we have a long commute anywhere we go, its really dark (no street lights), and there are some questionable neighbors that we're hoping mind their own business. But all in all we love the house and the space and we're excited about all the potential and the fun years ahead.
The pictures below are the ones I took way before we moved in, I'll take some current ones soon.

We have a costume contest each year at work and there are always lots of creative costumes. It makes for a fun day and my mime costume won this year, yeah!
Ridge gets a fun day at daycare on Halloween with orange pancakes, orange frosted cookies, and a costume parade.
Now onto Thanksgiving and Christmas! :)

Ridge and I went down to the Burton's on Saturday. Tawnya and I made little/big ghosts, figured out and made stuff for costumes, made soup, cookies, then went to the chili cook off and trunk or treat at church. It was busy day but so much for to enjoy holiday fun with family. The boys were DARLING! I took them outside to take pictures in their costumes and they were totally in character, Riley was flapping all around like a bat, and Ridge was growling and clawing like a scary wear wolf, and Ian was chasing them around as Obi One Kanobi. I took more pictures then needed but they were just so darn cute! The party was fun too even if we were 45 mins late.. Tawny was a sexy mummy, and Connor pulled off a great Viking at the last minute.
I told Ridge he gets to dress up one more time for the actual Halloween, and he said "another one".. But he's excited.
