Lost pictures

So I was taking pictures of my new cheese press (see post below) with my phone and I found these pictures!

Outside Sportsman's Warehouse, he loved that thing!
Riding in Grandma's new garden wagon. Grandpa was pulling us around the house!

My cheese press is here!

Yea! I can make more cheese! I am really excited to get into the hard cheese. So hopefully I can get that going soon.

I also need to get my kitchen painted in the next 2 weeks and the living room / dining room painted in the next 4 weeks, so I am going to be busy. All these things take some uninterrupted time, so I have to do them when Keanan is sleeping, at 9pm. That or wait till the weekend, but Zac also has projects that he needs to work on, so I don't like to do that. Ughhh, so is life!

Keanan's big boy room is almost done! Just waiting for some things in the mail and a valance for the window and then I will share some pics! It is super cute! Just got a play rug with a road for cars today! I want to play in there!

Here's the press:

So it has been a week today since I fell down the stairs at my mom's while holding Keanan, yikes! He was totally fine, just a little freaked out. I must have really bruised my tailbone because it still hurts! I have been trying to be better about doing my Pilates, but can't do about 1/4 of the moves due to pain. I wonder if I broke it. So annoying!

My husband is amazing!!

For about 2 weeks Zac has been planning this secret date for last night. I was told to be ready at 4:45 and that was it. So Jess and Casey get here to watch Keanan at about 4:30 (thank you!) and Zac arrives shortly after that. We head out to the car and he says "lets take a walk." My response: "I don't want to go for a walk." Then I hear it, an airplane!! Zac looks up and I ask him if it is Greg (our awesome pilot friend). It was! About a quarter of a mile down a trail from our house is the Cougar Mountain airport, a little grass strip. We come out of the trees and there is Greg and his wife Chris waiting for us! It was so awesome!!!

So up we go, circle our house (so cool!) and then head for Friday Harbor on San Juan Island! The flight was so amazing, the weather was perfect. It makes me remember why I love living here, beautiful! We landed and walked down the street to the restaurant. I had some awesome crab pasta, yum.

After dinner we walked back up to the plane. By this time the sun was starting to set. We all get buckled in and ready to go, but the plane wouldn't start! Greg cranked it a few times and then it got flooded. So we walked back into town and had pie at a bar and grill. After we were done we walked back up to the plane. After a few tries it started up and we headed for Seattle.

Greg did a touch and go at Boeing Field so we could fly right by downtown Seattle with all the lights, it was awesome! Then we headed for home. From about Tacoma to the Olympia airport Zac got to fly the plane! He even helped Greg land it (this made me a little nervous). Greg and Chris then drove us home.

What an amazing evening!!! Major points for Zac!

Side note: Keanan did great, it was the first time going to bed without mom.

And it begins...

The tantrums, that is. If Keanan does not get something he wants (usually something not okay, like crawling under the bar-b-que - what the heck!) He throws a fit!! Like crying, flailing the body, life is so cruel, fit! He got his first smack on the butt today. Geez, didn't think this part would start so soon...

Keanan's hideout

He loves climbing under this coffee table. Notice the drawer is gone because he broke it from opening it so much! If he is getting tired he will just climb under here to chill. Such a silly kid!


Okay here are some pics of our tree farm. They are kind of hard to see, so you might need to click on the picture. The view from the front porch:From the curve in the driveway looking back toward the house:Here are some up close:

Yay for Rain!

No really... I'm serious. We really need it to rain right now so all 2,500 of our little Christmas trees can get a good drink. We officially have a Christmas tree farm. Now we need a cool name for ourselves, any ideas?

As soon as I get a chance I will take some pics. We are off to 3 baby showers in 1! Yay for babies!

10 months!!

That's right! Keanan is 10 months old today! Such a big kid! To celebrate we went the North West Trek with Lucy and Auntie Ann. They mostly had fun watching all the other kids and didn't care about the animals. They did like their toys from the gift shop:2 more months of breastfeeding and only 1 more month of pumping, yea!!!!! I am ready to be done with that! :) Here's a cute pic. from this evening:

What's the deal?

Okay, someone needs to explain something to me. What is the big hoopla over Twilight? I saw the movie and it was super sappy, Zac and I both rolled our eyes and groaned at various spots. I hear that the author has a very limited vocab. and the books get ubber inappropriate. So what's the deal?


Ughhh...I am ready for cold season to go away! Oh wait... then comes allergy season! I hope Keanan takes after his Dad in that respect.

Both Keanan and I are experiencing this latest plague. I feel gross and tired, and I have the ability to blow my nose, I can't imagine how he feels! Poor kid. He is generally in a good mood though, and he has been sleeping fine. I feel like I have baby snot all over me. Yuck!
