3rd Weekend of October

The weekend has been a good one! Friday evening Kale went up to Grandma and Grandpa Dreilings house to pay with Marisa and carve pumpkins. The went to the store and picked out some good ones to take home. Each of the kids got to pick out two pumpkins. Then back at the house Grandma had bought some fun toys for the kids to play with, they were toys shaped like the Mr. Potato Head cut outs. The stuck into the pumpkins to make faces with out the mess of carving!

Saturday and Sunday Erin worked at his Swap Meet at the Fairgrounds. The Swap meet had lots of vendors and car people selling all types of car related items. Some of the vendors had old car parts, or even cars to sell. Others had improvement items for the vehicles. Erin set up his Amsoil booth to meet people and talk with them about using the products. He meet some great contacts and even signed up a few new accounts. My dad came down for a few hours today to help him out and talk with a few people about the products as well! Sorry for no pics but I kept forgetting to take the camera when Kale and I went to visit the booth!

Today is Erin's dad's b-day! Happy Birthday! We didn't get to do anything today but plan to have a dinner later in the week to celebrate!

Today is also my parents anniversary! Happy Anniversary! Dad came down to Hutch to help Erin out with the booth but Mom was not able to come due to being sick! Not much of an anniversary for them today, but maybe when she starts feeling better!

We are busy trying to think of things to do for Kale's 1st Birthday party! It has come so quickly! I have the invitations done but that is about it! Not sure on a theme yet but probably going to be super hero's or cars! I will let you know when we figure it out!

The Last Few Weeks

Well in the last few weeks we have been staying busy! So for the delay in reporting!!

Kale is growing up so fast! We are starting to plan his 1st birthday party we didn't expect it to come so quickly! He is walking now, farther and farther each day! I have a few videos but our computer has been acting up so as soon as I get them uploaded I will be sure to post them.

We went to the zoo for the first time a few weeks ago, Kale had a lot of fun checking out all the animals and feeding the fish and ducks in the pond. We tried to teach him the names of the animals but he just kept pointing to them and saying, "dog", o well close enough!

Last weekend we got to go back to Topeka to see my family for a while. We had alot of fun staying at Grandma and Grandpa's house! They have fun playing with him outside, although this time we forgot the bug spray and he got a lot of bug bites! Oops! Kale also got to see Great Grandma Smith, and Great Grandma Swanson, along with 2nd cousins, Sheri and Allen, and Great Uncle Larry. We had a great time although we wish we could have spent more time up there!

I took Kale on a little photo shot around Hutchinson about 2 weeks ago and got some really great pics! Most of them were taken at Carey Park but a few were taken at an old train station south of Main Street. I will be posting them soon also!

We have finally picked out a Halloween costume for him, we won't tell you want it is yet, but we will say that it has no feet or hat!! Those didn't seem to work out!

This weekend we stayed in town. Starting yesterday the roofers came and tore off our old roof and started putting the new shingles up. The were here bright and early this morning but got the entire house reroofed by noon! It looks great and we are happy to have it done finally!

This evening we went to a 25th Wedding Anniversary party for Debra and Alex Lizalde (Erin's Sisters Mother- and Father-in-law) It was a lot of fun and they had GREAT food! We had a lot of fun watching all the little kids play together! Kale was very worn out after a few hours so we decided to come home early. Well that is about all for now I will try and most more often in the future!

Love, Erin Steph and Kale!
