I got up this morning and was baking at 6am so she could have some fresh cookies to take home along with her pumpkin bread that I baked a couple days ago. They are yummy. I am consoled now. :-D
I am a little annoyed with myself because I didnt take many pictures while Kayla was here and vow to take bunches in 2 weeks. I did manage to get these as she was leaving.....>
I miss you already. Countdown begin.
P.S. (Hi Mary! Happy Thanksgiving to you all too! I made the cupcakes too. They were easy but you can see in the picture that I put the tailfeathers on one upside down! I saw them in the newspaper. You can get the recipe at bakelifesweeter.com and they have Christmas snowman cupcakes and cookies that I'd like to try to make with Bailey. )

Thats what you get when your birthday is so close to Thanksgiving.
Make a wish and blow out your turkey candles. Notice Dylan in the background. He is an odd one.
Happy 53rd Birthday!Something's missing in this picture. O yes it is ME. oh well. At least Kayla's in it : )
Dylan made this face in every picture I took of him. Odd.And here is Bailey rollerblading in the house again.

I know its not a good picture, but I took it last night and the light was pretty bad. I am still tired from yesterday. My eye has been twitching all day. Bailey says it is because I am tired and that I need my beauty sleep. I don't know how Kayla gets by on so little sleep. I need my 10 hours heehee. Goodnight!

Dylan passed the test with flying colors and is now in possession of his California Drivers License.

Yesterday we drove to Mt. SAC for CIF Prelims. Dylan was picked as an alternate for the varsity team. He drove with the team. We drove with Bailey, Ally and Jessica. They came over a little early to make posters and paint their faces to show their support. (or just to have fun?)
Dylan only had to run a couple miles warmup and another mile (for a workout). The firemarshals made them change the race from 3miles to only 2miles . It was about 90 degrees and because of all the fires in the state, they wouldnt have crews available to pick up passed out runners like at the last race. The air seemed to be pretty good there too though the planes kept going over our heads on the way to water drop.
Dylan hung out with Christian. He broke his foot and wasnt running and cant run for 10 weeks, which must have been very hard on him especially since Royal's boys came in FIRST place.
The girls team came in 6th place so they dont get to move on. They were dissapointed but I think they did really well just winning League and with having 2 of their top runners out with injuries. Next year will be even better.
Here is a picture of the sun. It looks pretty because of the fire and smoke always makes the sky red.
Wrinkles was not impressed.

The car was moving too fast but you get the fall feel...Here's Dylan in the driver's seat. He can get his license any day. I think his appointment is next Friday.And here is the view from the back left of the backyard. I thought you could see colorful trees better but it doesnt really show much.And here is Wrinkles. The cactus doesnt change much that I know of. Not that I check them seasonally or anything.It is 10pm here Friday night and I just picked up Dylan, Bailey and Brittany up from the Royal-Simi Football game. It was VERY crowded as usual. Royal beat Simi 24-0. Yay I guess.
But anyway, it is 83 degrees outstide. AT 10 OCLOCK! And very windy. There is a big fire in Santa Barbara that destroyed over 100 homes and part of a college (that Dylan played in a tournament at). Did I mention that I HATE the wind? Oh so it says on my computer that in Bozeman, it is 27 degrees. I hope you are inside and warm Kayla.
Tomorrow, we go to Mt. SAC again for State PreLims. It should be about 100. Fun. (not) Well now I am going to try to get some sleep if it is possible with everything outside blowing and banging around. Did I mention I hate the wind? I do. Goodnight.

Now for the rest of you.. Bailey brought her pictures to me when she got in the car after school.
I brought her home then when Dylan called, I picked him up and brought him home.
I remembered the pictures and asked him where his were. "In the locker room"
You mean in your locker? "No, in front of my locker"
Grrrr. Back to school again.
Luckily they were still there and it was still opened.
So here they are. Bailey...
Buddy shot with Bri....And Dylan.....Worth the drive, I think. : )

Since Kayla's birthday has passed, I would like to show mom the card that I made for her. I made it when I was in San Diego for Bailey's 9hr cheer practice. It didnt take 9hrs though.
I didnt take a picture of the inside but it was really cute too.
Not bad huh!
And here is the card that I bought for Shawn but never mailed.
On the inside it says Happy Birthday ROCK ON!
By the way, I am down to 16,000 pictures.

His medals all hung in a row on his closet rod.His sunglasses all in a row.
His uniform folded neatly underneath his numbers from races.And here is his painting of Steve Prefontaine that he painted in the beginning painting class he took at Moorpark College this summer.Yes I think he is obsessed with running. He watches you-tube of Olympic races over and over and over. I think I should take more pictures. heehee
