Coffee table 1, William 0

This weekend was chugging along like any normal weekend. Brian was abalone diving, Julia was at a girl scout weekend in the city. Victoria, William and I were left home.

We did some shopping, Victoria got her ears pierced, and I did some quilting. Just a nice relaxing time.

And then Sunday happened.

Sunday Brian decided to take us out to breakfast, which isn't normal. But it was good food. After breakfast we went to the Dollar Tree. The kids' school is doing Operation Christmas child. You make a box of goodies for a child who might not get a Christmas present. I was very proud that all three of my kids wanted to help out someone less fortunate than them.

After some shopping it was time to go home, watch football and get ready for a Mother Daughter tea party with the girl scouts.

And that's when this happened.

Victoria was rushing past her brother and gently, lovingly? pushed him into our coffee table. Now let me say the coffee table has rounded edges, so apparently we are lucky that he didn't need any stitches.

Needless to say the coffee table has been removed from our living room. Not only because it bruised my baby, but right before William was pushed into it, Victoria was pushed also and broke the small glass square inside the coffee table.

Never a dull moment. At least I can say that.

P.S. Don't forget about the great giveaway by Oroweat bread!

October was here....

October is my favorite time of the year. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Every year we go to Half Moon Bay, pick out our pumpkins, visit the ocean and just have a great time.

Pumpkin picking doesn't really take us that long. Nothing like it takes us to find our christmas tree...but thats another post for another day. It usually the biggest pumpkins we can find that we take.

Then its off to the ocean. The ocean is one of my favorite places. I could sit and stare for hours, and thankfully Brian and the kids are just like me.

The following week we carved our lovely pumpkins. We spent the day carving, the children all did their own this year. Well ok, I helped William but the girls went solo and did a great job! Once we carved them, we put them outside and waited for dark. And of course I forgot to light them. So we wake up the sleeping children to see their lighted pumpkins and then usher them off to bed!
