Ninjas in Training


videoThis year for Halloween the Fairhurst family decided we would all dress up as ninjas. This was a natural choice for our family, we spend a lot of time wrestling and ninja fighting. As fun as this all sounds, representing ninjas is a serious business. I love my kids, but I can't have them defacing the good name of ninjahood. Rigorous training for this event was necessary. Here is some film of one of our training sessions. The kids did well and we had a lot of fun with our weekend of trick (trunk) or treatin'. HIIIII YAAAAA

pee-wee in HD




So Ashton joined a pee-wee flag football team at the end of this summer. Today was his first game. I had so much fun watching him. My new camera has HD video capabilities so I tried it out so that Kev wouldn't miss it completely. (he had to work today and I know was bummed). Ashton played center for most of the game. He played the whole game and it was about 85 degrees. Chloe and Ashy were so hot we had to go for some victory icecream after. Check out one of Ashton's big plays. Oh and pardon my screaming. This is my first mommy football game and I have no control, something for me to work on next game. video

preschool for Chloe



So today was chloe's first day of prescool. I asked her was she learned she said she didn't know. Her teacher told me that when they looked for the letters to spell their names Chloe looked for 'A'. I have a sneaky feeling that she spells her name A-S-H-T-O-N. Her teacher told me that during circle time she sarcasticly shared that her favorite thing to eat is food, her favorite thing to play with is toys, and her not favorite is to play outside when Jack Jack is out. (he is a dog). Her teacher who know Kevin said that she sounded just like her dad with her serious sarcasim.

She is so happy to have some school stories to swap with Ashton now. Oh I got her to smile pretty by asking her if she liked ice cream. I knew her reaction would be nice. Then she asked me for 5 minutes straight if we could have ice cream today. I kept telling her no. Lucky her though she got to make peach cobbler and eat it with ice cream at preschool today.

Happy Birthday Baby






Yesterday was a little crazy with the starting of school. We still found time to celebrate little Oli's birthday. She had a small party. Her friends Ajah, and Grace came. (Chloe was disappointed that it wasn't Gracie). She is our first child to really go for it with the cake. Oli had a wonderful time, and was ready for bed by the end.

First day of school.




















It was Ashtons first day of Kindergarden today. He was super excited about riding the Kindergarden bus home. They have a bus for only little guys that takes them home at noon. He told me he had lots of friends in his class and that they got to play 2 times. Later we heard him saying some new words that I won't repeat. He had no clue what they meant. We had the "some kids say things at school that we don't" discussion. Yippee I'm so excited for kindergarden.

Oh the wonderful things you can do



I'm still totally addicted to using freezer stencils. I"m slowly putting together a bird themed room for Oli. Here are the curtains that I just finished.

5 things I love about Washington






The location (we are so much closer to friends and family).

It is absolutely beautiful here.
There is a ton to do. Especially all the hiking and fishing.
We are addicted to the U-pick farms. Nothing like fresh peaches, apples, strawberries and raspberries.
The neighborhood. Really there is nothing like sharing the hood with a few llama and deer not to mention the occasional moose.
