Where has the time gone?

Where has the time gone? It seems like I was just writing about the first day of school and now we'll be entering the fourth week of school. So much has happened since those first honeymoon days...

Bill had a visit from Miss Morphina and a kitty scan at the local ER after a bad spill from his motorcycle while riding on some steep hills above Boise. Thank goodness nothing was broken or lacerated or punctured or ruptured... Just deeply contused - a chest contusion to be more specific. Nope, 42 year olds do not bounce like 22 year old men do. Nope, they sure do not! 2 weeks later and he is still one sore hombre! Don't even ask him about sneezing...

Kris had a visit from the birthday fairy and turned 41 last Saturday. The day was spent going to Payton's football game (go little Broncos!), spending time with Lindsay at the art museum viewing cockroach art (yes, really, there was a cockroach exhibit) and visiting all the many booths at Art in the Park. Cute stuff there! After all the running around of children, Bill and I enjoyed a yummy dinner at Lucky 13 - Moon Pie Pizza to be exact: Chicken, garlic sauce, mozzarella, artichoke hearts, and garlic. Yep, I was in pizza heaven on my birthday!!!

Alyssa got asked to Homecoming with real snow made into a real snowman... I know! Where in the world does a 17 year old boy drive to get real snow in September??? I tried hard to think of which mountains had snow on them??? I just couldn't think of any. But it looked like real snow, it felt like real snow, and it tasted like real snow. Hmmm.. Boy, did the guys get a kick out of the gullible mother mumbling to herself and trying like heck to think of mountains within driving distance that this snow would have come from... Any guesses? Sun Valley? nope. Bogus Basin? nope. Owyhee Mountains? nope. Idaho Ice World? Yep... Hey, that's not a mountain!!! Anyway, Alyssa was very glad that she had a date for her senior year of Homecoming!

Pretty much sums up how the poor senior girls played during the Powder Puff Football don't wanna know who won...

It was a blackout during the Homecoming game and the boys prevailed! Not too shabby for a freshman quarterback!

Awww... wasn't she just born???

Wow! I've never seen so many guys back in black. Good looking group of THS kids!
