Mine is making dinner-- chicken breasts-- but all I want in the whole wide world is a sweet Italian sausage sandwich, so I'm off to the stand outside Lowes. Stupid first trimester cravings.

We've just had a very rough night DD lost her security blanket and went into full blown hysterics, nothing would calm her down.

Stupid me hadn't gotten around to finding/creating a spare one

DH wants to go get pumpkins next weekend... time to plan a 'fall field trip'
post #45 of 167
We found the funnest pumpkin farm nearby! Tons of stuff to do for every aged kid. The teens did zip-lines and a big trampoline-like jump....slides, rolling tubes, and corn maze. My toddler loved feeding the goats and climbing up to the tube slides! Such a happy day for this Mama to see the whole family enjoying our time together. Seems like such a rare treat these days.

We are going on a field trip to the pumpkin patch tomorrow, the kids are sooo excited! We have not gone before but I hear this one is really good. Hayrides, corn maze, and lots more. Everyone is getting a pumpkin too...I think the ride home should be fun!"Mom, my pumpkin fell off my lap."

Ooh! I love the weekend!! It's raining here- much needed but means we are indoors and looking in the game closet. They are busy playing Sorry. No pumpkins for us yet as they get rotten in our weather so quickly. We have to wait til the last minute!

Those of us who were sick are feeling better. phew, no fevers!

Feeling rather together today. Taking pressure off myself, as in I don't need to have every detail of everything planned years in advance. "Go with the flow...but look out for waterfalls and dams."

It has snowed all day here, can you believe that?!? And we are all in the new house except for garage stuff which I am not touching. That's all DH's mess. I love our new house...yay!!

Pixie~ hope your little one is doing better.
And congrats AM on expecting!

Sam, did you find your LO's blankie? Your post got me thinking about all the years with "comfort items" around here and how panic sets in when one goes missing! I'm sure we all have at least one funny store to share....

Yes we did, it was under a seat in our van, I have now found a second blankie in the same material (it's just a baby blanket you can buy in most department stores). What I am going to do is switch the blankies over for a few nights so it gets the same look and smell and then put it away in the cupboard for emergencies or when I want to wash the one she is using now.

I'm not exactly sure where that is.. we have only lived in Oregon for 5 years.. we are at the base of Mt. Hood. The mountain was covered with snow today. Beautiful. We probably wont see any here til the end of Nov. or Dec.

Wow, another Oregonian! Are there more of us?? I was personally very glad to see the sun peek out this afternoon, reminding me that the gloom is only temporary and not the end of the world.

I need input on CARS. Or rather, vehicles that hold more people than a car does! If we have a baby next year, I'm going to need to get a bigger car. I have a Sienna that seats 7, which would work for just us, but I rely on carpooling kids across town to school, so I need two extra seats for them. I have one that can sit in the front seat, so I need a car that will fit six "in the back." We do road trips and camp too, with the dog and inflatable kayaks, etc, so a vehicle that just squeezes in bodies where a trunk would be or something wouldn't really work. Or we could get a trailer to haul our stuff?
Do any of you moms have such a vehicle, that seats 8 or 9 people? What is it and what do you like/not like about it?

Thank you.

Hi Jenny,

We have a Toyota HiAce Commuter Bus (not sure if you have them in the USA) it has 14 seats.

What I Like: we have room to take the kids friends with us.
What I dislike: not much of a boot, we keep having kids so we're running out of seats and room

When we go away we have a box trailer we tow to put all our gear in.

Jenny, I'm eyeing up the VW Transporter to contain five kids, a wheelchair bound FIL and occasional sailing dinghy.

Thanks a lot to all who sent thoughts, hugs and well-wishes.
We're not doing so good, my little miss is still very, very sick. She has sepsis, and her organs aren't functioning well. No logic reason, and we need to solve it very quickly, she can't take this for long. I'm zombie-ish (not sleeping or eating), not leaving her side, terrified.
And not making sense, prolly.
