Buffalo Wallow News.

As the leaves fall softly from the trees, covering the ground with a blanket of warm yellows and oranges, we can not help but wonder why...the leaves dont turn blue? Blue is a cold color...replicates the thought of snow and winter....white....oh wait we dont want that color quite yet.

Rain falls not so softly from the sky, making lots of puddles to jump in as we go by. (good thing we wear boots to school and change our shoes) Today the kids discovered leaf boats. With the river running down Edward...we were able to send half the leaves from the top of the hill to the bottom.

As they tumbled along in the stream of water, Warren whooped like a banshee for all to see that his "pirate ship" beat them all....that is until it fell in the gutter drain....then he cried. How come all the fun ends with a tear....but....thanks to a smart thinking father (who almost got ran over by the boy trying to retrieve his precious boat) the boat only made it half way into the drain...it was saved...cant say the same for the pirate lost at sea....so if on your beach adventures you come across a little pirate dressed in red...with black hair and a "bird" on his face (that is beard for those that dont speak four year old). Mr Warren would be much relieved to know "little man" is safe and well. In the mean time Melissa has a cool story to tell at school today.

Josh and Crystals stuff is now in route to the East Coast. They are now settled into an apartment that sounds a lot like the cute little home they had in Wasilla. Nataly spent the last of the summer in Pennsylvania with her great grandma...guess she is a real handfull now...lol.

Sound like litttle Riley chats a mile a minute. Crystal had her first encounter with a small fourlegged critter in the dumpster...she is not too immpressed with the racoons...lol...but the foot long night crawler that Riley found....well that sent Crystal into a panick attack...guess she can not tell a worm from a snake...lol boy is she in for something next summer...

At the moment it sounds like all of Joshs troops will be deployed by the end of January....some are going now....others before Christmas...guess they send them as they are ready instead of as a whole troop. He sounds like he is enjoying the big booms that go along with the guns. He is training for night attacks now...tell me how a fairskinned red head can camo himself at night? he better not drop his pants to pee....a full moon will cost the troops a bit. (that was a funny)

So life in the Buffalo Wallow goes on. Warren and I have settled into a routine...I leave him alone and he leaves me alone...lol...except when we do preschool and he helps with all the chores. He is enjoying the Wii and has figured out how to play the thing. I do not know how so he has had to do it himself...and boy does he get pissed when he askes for my help and i get him killed...hehe...he says "Mom I will just do it myself...your the problem here" Now the big kids thoought that was funny...me...i was speachless...but glad that he does not ask my help anymore...moms just can not know everything hello!!!

So now I am off to build a park in my basement. The whole thing will be converted and all extra room utalized...NO ONE else is moving into this house with out a 5000 dollar deposite!....

have a wonderful fall day....keep your eye out for a missing pirate...never know what toilet he may pop up.....

I sure do love hearing about what's going on with the kiddos. I doubt Warren's priate will make it to Anchor Pt, but who knows! Actually, Hunter left one here and I believe he's sitting on Hunter's pirate ship in the spare bedroom. Maybe Warren could make a deal with Hunter - Huh? I miss all of you so much. I think I/we will try to make a trip to LA this month. Maybe with Shane. Luv you!

Wow, for awhile I thought the greater metropolitan area had lost their internet service, have not seen a "new" blog in several days on any of the sites ~ except mine! Missed yours today until just now, I was at work when you posted is why "granny" beat me out. We have not been getting the rain that you have had, sunny and clear for the past 5 - 6 days. Although, it was sunny yesterday and I was working in my shirt sleeves, lower Kroc Pond was iced over in the morning and remainded frozen throughout the day. The big news tonight, as of just five minutes ago. The jury came back with a verdict at 11 pm Las Vegas time, O.J. Simpson guilty on all 12 charges, most serious kidnapping with a weapon. He will be sentenced later, facing 15 to life, he is age 61. The irony, today, October 3rd was the 13th anniversary when he was found innocent in the trial of a century of a double homicide. Tonight, he was returned to a jail cell ~ it will be sometime if ever before he walks the streets again. Now, perhaps they will remove him from the "Football Hall of Fame".
