Pony Ride

Fischer got to take his first pony ride last weekend! (I've been avoiding it until now b/c I'm allergic to them and he had to be big enough that he could hang on himself...the workers stayed beside him).


Fischer's face says it all: "Is this guy really on his cell phone right now???"


Cheeeeeese!


Still having fun! (the little boy in the background kept tipping his hat and saying "yee-haw"...it was so cute).

More from October

Fischer's new swing set is complete!


The trapeze is his favorite part.


This is my 7 month picture...about 1 1/2 weeks late (already have the 2nd child syndrome!)...and yes, I know I look big, but as with Fischer, the doctor says everything is measuring just fine. Again I'm just all belly because of my limited stature.


Fischer keeps falling asleep like this (this is at night, the flash made it look like day)...my mother says that this is how my dad (Fischer's Papa) always sleeps...could it be hereditary?


When your fridge looks like this, is it time to go to the store??? (I don't think my fridge has ever been this empty, so I had to take a pic!)

New Stuff

Fischer's corner (he and Owen will be sharing a bedroom)...


Fischer got a swing set for his birthday...we're setting it up now while the weather is nice, even though his birthday isn't until Dec. 21. Last night we managed the frame and the slide...here's Fischer's first run on the new slide:

Just Hangin' Around

We aren't doing much new around here besides trying to get all our little projects done before the baby is born...so here's just a few pics from the last few weeks.

Dustin had a toenail worked on and had to soak his foot twice a day...Fischer came in, took off his clothes, and climbed in! (kinda gross, I know, but at least it was Epsom salt and this was after weeks of healing).


Of course we made him get out, so he sat and soaked his feet too.


Daddy reading Fischer a bedtime story (usually we use the rocking chair).


Fischer likes to play with my headbands...he did this all by himself.


I'm finally working on decorating Fischer's room...here are the 4 paintings I made to match his bedding (the pillow is part of his bedding).


I joined a cooking co-op where we spend one day each month cooking enough dinners to last the month...we also do some prep work the day before. My job was to brown ground beef. I ground 40 pounds in about 3 hours!

Here's 5 pounds before:


And 5 pounds after! (I did this 8 times)


Anyone need an 8x8 pan full of grease??


The fruits of my our labor...a freezer full of meals I can just pull out and heat up on the stove or in the oven. Add a veggie and rolls and dinner is ready!
