Happy Halloween!

Coop hung out Friday in his Trick or Treat light up shirt. It was so cute. There was a Mickey Mouse on it that lights up when ever he moved. We ran errands during the day and made sure we got both our naps so we were ready for Trick or Treating in the evening.

In the afternoon Grandma and Papa Quaid came over to take pics of the little Puppy Dog.

Then we headed over to our friends' house, Mamie and Joe to gather up the rest of the kids for dinner and Trick or Treating. As you can see there were lots of kids and all the costumes were cute.

The best part about Coop's costume was when he crawled his little puppy tail wagged!

Play Date!

On thurs. Becca and Ashley came over for a play date. It was the 1st time Coop was really excited about seeing her. It was fun to watch them interact. They would take toys from each other so we need to teach them how to share. They don't get mad yet when the other one takes it away but I know as they play more they'll learn what sharing really means. I love that he has someone just his age and I am excited for them to continue growing up together.

Jeep 4 Sale!

Last Sunday Dave cleaned up the Jeep to post it on Craig's List. It's officially 4 Sale! Please pray that it sells fast, as we are in desperate need of the $ it will bring in. It will be sad to let it go but I know 4 wheeling will be a part of our lives again some day when Coop is old enough for those camping memories.

When mom's away...2

So Sat. I had to work. When I came home for lunch Dad had dressed Coop in this cute little outfit that he was so proud of!

when mom's away, the boys will play...1

So last night I got away for some much needed "me" time. I got a foot rub, Starbuck's signature hot chocolate, and then women and fellowship. When I leave Dave and Cooper home alone I usually find a pic or video on the camera documenting their time together. This was what I discovered on there today. It's a cute pic of the wild hair and that look just says they were up to something!

Park & Pun'kins!

My mom and I took Coop to the park today where we met up with my friend Lori and her boys Carter and Cade. I borrowed my dad's Nikon for the afternoon and we got some cute pics. Then after his nap we drove to the pumpkin patch to get some more fall pics, and to pick out our pumpkins to carve. Such a great day to be outside enjoying the Fresno fall weather.

The BIG Fresno Fair!

So last night we took Coop for his 1st annual trip to the BIG Fresno Fair. This has been a Lebda tradition for us, for the past few years. We all look forward to the animals the most. This year Dave was super excited to share our tradition with Cooper. He had fun and was even overwhelmend at times with so much going on around him. He got his 1st souvenier.... a light up toy that also vibrates. His eyes lit up when we handed it to him and he loved how it felt on his teeth. How can you say no to a face like his. At the end of the night we took our annual photo booth pics! Such a fun evening with lots of memories.

Since we were at the game last night, Coop stayed with Grandma and Papa Quaid... so we took a Sunday afternoon drive up to get him. This afternoon we walked down the road from their house to the Meadow Lakes Apple Company. They have the best mountain grown apples and their apple juice taste like you are literally drinking the tastiest apple you ever ate. Their orchard is located on the top of a hill with a beautiful view and you pick out your own apples in their packing shed. The owner taught me how to make homemade applesauce for Cooper. It was the perfect fall day to take a walk through Meadow Lakes and Coop loved being out doors.... and sampling the apple goodies!

Fresno State Football.... Boo

We went to the Fresno State Football game last night.... they lost.... in over time.... to fun! Ok well the game was interesting, but boo on them for losing, because they shouldn't have!

Family Game Night

So Bill and Michelle and Dave and I are all obsessed with Seinfeld. We both own the DVD set of all the episodes and watch them every evening, we quote it, and basically relate every situation to a Seinfeld episode.... so we were stoked to see they came out with Seinfeld Scene It! Bill and Michelle came over Friday night and we all played. Let's just say it was a close race to the finish and we were all impressed with our knowledge of the show about nothing.

Bennington Boat Baby!

My dad took this pic of Coop on his boat Sunday afternoon. I thought it was really cute and wanted to share it with all of you!

Gold Canyon Candles!

So I am now officially selling Gold Canyon Candles. I love them and always bought them from my friend who is no longer selling them.... so I have decided to be a distributor. I'm not looking to make lots of money, but if it earns me free candles then it's worth it. Please tell everyone you know and they can contact me if they are interested in ordering. I will be placing orders each month. I won't be doing home parties but if you know of a couple of people that want to order you can host a catalogue party and earn free product yourself. They have a huge selection of scents and these candles will fill your whole house with their fragrance! The holidays are coming up and they make great gifts too! Thanks for your support.
