Bibbit and the Final Projects

My brother Quinn moved to Las Vegas a couple of months ago and he had this car that just would not make the drive...Volkswagon's 1989 Cabriolet. She is a good little car but she needs some TLC so I gave Q a few sheckles and he gave me The Bibbet..that is the official name of this little beauty..and like all the other women in my life Stefanie and her go toe-to-toe, they just do not get a long...but I like her.

As for the final projects of the year for the exterior of the house.. I planted a Japanese Maple sapling and a little planter box for it

Finished sodding all the areas of the yard that will get sod (next year the final steps of the yard will happen) and built a planter box around this tree..and installed a little light for trolls and gnomes to find there way around.

Sod all the way up to the back of the house..I like it like that.

So the grass will sleep and a beautiful rebirth will happen in the spring and all the yard will be green! Isn't that just specialll!


Halloween 2009

Well this years Halloween was a blast!! We did so many parties and gatherings we were quite busy!! We got the pics to prove it!

Here is Stef and myself with our good friend Doug Irey, he has been our friend for over 5 years and he is just incredible..we went out the weekend befoer to a costume party and they were shooting pictures..we call this the "Drink Ad" we all look like we are pitching something.

Stefanie and I went as Maximus and Lucilla from Gladiator..I made my costume by hand (bought the boots and did not forge the sword) but built the belt and tunic...and as you can see from the picture before I even cut my hair into a ceaser cut to fit the part....I think we looked great!

We were invited to a huge party at this house where is was once a Mormon church..bought and refurbished to be a home...it is absolutely huge...they have a dance floor and a huge sound system and we tore up the night it was so much fun.

Here is some of our little gang Seth, Aaron, Amber, Stef, Me, Doug, John and Ally

We also went to a kids costume party at the Barrowes house...it was a big costume / birthday party for several of the kids..and they all looked so good!! Her is Everest (Vampire) and Isabella Watts (Goldfish)

The beautiful Omer girls

Stef with Madelyn and Issa, Crazy Mads was a mermaid and Isabella was her gold fish.


The real Batmen Begins..isn't he the cutest little boy?

The older kids were to cool and had to hang out and watch Monsters vs. Aliens...but it was a great time..so until next year. Happy Halloween!
