Random Pictures

This post is just a bunch on random pictures from the last couple weeks. Hope you enjoy!
This is from Debbie's birthday dinner. It wasn't much of a celebration, but we tried under the circumstances! Dinner consisted of steak, twice baked potatoes, salad and green peas. Dessert was provide by Liz, a wonderful Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cake. So yummy! Just a couple more months and Debbie heads out to Brussels, Belgium, Netherlands Mission. Good luck Debs!
Taylor (Sarah's daughter) found a pen lying around our house. It was one of those smelly pens and I guess she couldn't resist seeing if it tasted as good as it smells.
Grandma watched the kids for us while we went to Tanner's first doctors appointment. We came home to them doing crafts. We wouldn't expect less for her. She loves doing things with the kids. She really should have been a preschool teacher!
Grandpa bought some pumpkins to carve with the kids. They were so excited to be able to put their pumpkin outside for everyone to see. Hopefully it will last until Halloween, but we aren't holding our breathe for that.
There is an ice cream truck that comes around our neighborhood everyday around 4:30. I have told the kids no time and time again, saying maybe another day. I finally gave in. Spencer picked out a Spiderman Bar. Natalie wanted a Dora Bar. Poor Bailey ended up with an Otter Pop from our freezer. I wasn't about to spend money on her when she really didn't care as long as she had something.
Bailey has been all about the big hugs lately. She will just run up to us randomly throughout the day and throw her arms around our necks and literally squeeze as hard as she can. We are loving it and hope that it doesn't end.
And finally a picture of our Bailey. This girl is crazy. We found her asleep on the dresser when we went to check on her for the night. Luckily the window was closed. We will have to remember to keep it closed from now on. Can you imagine her rolling over in her sleep and falling out the second story window? On second thought, maybe we should move the dresser!

So I was pleasantly enjoying the pictures, and then the last one got a belly laugh. That is hilarious. How do kids find the strangest things comfortable?

I loved this post. These week-in-reviews are great! It's like "a day in the life" of the Brushke's...Jeff and I both laughed way hard about the otter-pop substitute as well. Way to be frugal.

Oh, PS- to the comment Brett made on our blog- thanks for the advice and tips on where to live and what to look into..I know we have a whole lot of research ahead of us and every little bit of advice helps a ton. As far as surfing goes, Jeff would LOVE love LOVE to have a buddy to go with and he's totally up to teaching you...I'm not sure if he's as confident as he used to be with it, so it'd be a refresher for him as well -but he still loves to go. That would be cool if you could go together cause he's already promised me he won't go alone (that is a part of the agreement in living in CA) ;)

That is so funny! Who falls asleep on a hard cold dresser. She must have been really tired. You have such a cute family!
