Zach is the cutest!

Last night at dinner Maddie was talking to us about her friend Sallie and the b-day lunch she will be attending. It came up that her family is Jewish. Sallie and her parents are also vegetarians.

Zach says, "Mom is Sallie a Jewish name?  I answer, "No Zach"  and  Zach says, "So is Sallie a vegetarian name?"

We could not stop laughing! He cracks us up all the time.

Maddie and Wes are going through changes. (Puberty) Last night at dinner Maddie and Wes were both commenting that they each have a pimple on their nose.
Zach says, "I don't have a pimple, bit I have a dimple."
Cute kid!

The Fruit of our Labors

This is what happens when your labor isn't industrious and as nurturing as it should be.

We had a few problems.

1- Sporadic watering.
3- Negligence of pests and pesticides until it look over.

You should have seen our pumpkin patch. It looked awesome. Our pumpkins would start to grow, get about golf size and then start shriveling. I was told we had some kind of mildew problem because the leaves would turn an ash color and dry up. It took over the whole patch.

We'll try again next year. Good thing the grocery stores had pumpkins.

I'm not sure what has happened in the last few days, but it is suddenly VERY COLD! Today when I went walking after dropping off the kids, it was 37 degrees.

Cold, but fun at the same time. It rained all day yesterday and the night before.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!

Who needs college?

Yesterday after school the kids were having a snack and Carina says, "I don't wanna to go college." Maddie immediately chimes in, " But Carina, you get your own house, you can do what you want, be with your friends, etc." Carina says, in a exasperated voice ans sighs, "Ok, fine, I'll go to college."

A Good Hair Day

I just came across this and I don't think it ever got blogged. It's from two Halloweens ago. My friend in AZ holds an annual party. In case you are wondering, Willie was Dwight from the tv show "The Office"

Of course you all know what I was. I was just me after homework was done for the night.

New Blog

I decided to start a blog with some friends called "Adventures in Homemaking." On it will be all things homemaking, of course.

I've been wanting to do it for a while so I can post all my projects and recipes on it and leave Wilcox World specifically for the family.

Check it out if you'd like.

Happy Homemaking!

*You'll find a link to it on our blog.
