Halloween party

We had a fun halloween party. They wrapped each other up like mummys, had a pinata, made carmel apples after they bobbed for them, painted pumpkins and had a donut eating contest. The kids were great and so fun to be with. HAPPY HALLOWEEN

brenten cracks me up.

okay I put this on facebook already but it was funny. Brenten was sitting on the toilet and I walked by and he said:

I must have swallowed a mosquito because it really hurts when I go stink.

I really didn't know what to say to this so I just said "Oh really"

This has been something I have been thinking about a lot lately. So sorry, you don't get kid picts today. Instead you get me venting. Maybe it is that I am a little high on meds because I have another kidney stone or I am extra sensitive these days. I don't know but good luck understanding this post. There have been some things going on with people that I am very close to. I know these things happen all the time and that crap just seems to happens. Unfortunately, just living right and being good people doesn't make us exempt. All sorts of variations and different situations of crap. Some of which are things we could have prevented, and some that we have zero control over. What it leaves me thinking is life here is short and we never know what will happen and how long we get to be here on earth. What I do know is those who leave us get to go on with their family members who have passed on before and can be happy. What I hate more than anything is regret. It makes me think of how my relationships are. How have I made those lives around me any better? Do they know that I love them? Especially those in my family. I love my family. I know my kids and husband know I love them. But I don't know if my brothers and sisters know how much I think of them and worry about them. I am not near as close as I would like to be. My excuses have always been that we have our own lives and everyone just gets busy. But what it comes down to, is that if one of them were to leave this earth today how much I would regret not trying harder to build our relationships. I can't say that I have made their lives better and that is all on me. So going against all my "Sawyer ways" (for those of you who don't know...."it is the bottle it up and bury it down deep" way), I am going to try harder. For those of you who check my blog, I love you and I pray for you all the time. I hope you are all happy and expect lots of phone calls and emails and other ways I can bug you because I want to get to know you all better.

ps percocets are great for pain but they give me some crazy dreams. Anyway sorry for the midnight venting.

Brenten told me on the way home today that Cait needed some sucker. She definitely loves them. And it gave her a cute blue tongue.


I don't know why I take pictures of times when I am not paying attention. Now there is proof of me being a bad mom. Anyway, I turned around and Cait had demolished the McDonalds bag, found the french fries and then started to eating them as fast as she could. Almost like she knew they were going to be taken away. She loved them. It is cute to watch her eat them too.

One would think that she wants to crawl but no she just doesn't want to be on her stomach. No matter her motivation maybe one of these she will mobile. I'm not holding my breath. That's okay. I am just counting the days until I can no longer work on a project while she is awake.
