So I love watching the show NCIS and if you watch this show you know the lab tech Abby... hello LOVE her. So I always tell Jon I want black roses, because Abby on the show sometimes get them. Well come to find out.... you can't buy black roses, who knew? So while I was at knitting group last week Jon found a way to make me black roses for Halloween.
Nixon and the dogs in the back yard with the leaves. It is turning cold here in Spokane and we are having some fun in fall weather.
Tanner has been playing football this fall and we went to his last game on Saturday. He is number 59, if you don't know he is the tallest boy usually.

My sister gave Nixon this tent and a house and some tunnels for his birthday. I was able to get it back from Utah and Nixon LOVES it.
We took the tent outside and Nixon went in and out with the dogs.

So it was my birthday this weekend and it's a tradition for us to go up to Green Bluff. It was a chilly day, which it usually is up at the orchards, and we were all bundled up for the day. Nixon looked so cute decked out in his autumn colors and pumpkin hat, which I made for him last year and luckily I made it HUGE so it fits him perfectly this year.
This is a classic picture of Nixon with his tongue out, tasting that crisp air I guess.
Jon and Nixon were waiting for the little train ride.
Here we are on the train ride. The train just went around the orchards and was not too long, but it was fun. Nixon didn't say a word he just watched us ride along by all the pumpkins and apple trees.
Picking out our pumpkin.. ok maybe we didn't buy THIS exact one. We got free ones that were little, but that is not important for the picture:)
Nixon liked the "hum" of the train engine. He loves the vacuum "hum" too, he sits there and puts both hands on it.
Then we played in this pirate ship that was a mini play ground in a way. Nixon loved the window that he could poke his head out.
I took Nixon down the slide.. and totally fell right on my butt, it was embarrassing but pretty funny. I would have laughed at me too!
There was string put up on some of the maze making is so you couldn't go this way, Nixon didn't listen. He thought it was a game to get to the other side.
After eating a VERY delicious caramel apple at Green Bluff we headed out. Karen and Mark were so nice to watch Nixon that night so Jon and I could go out to dinner. We went to The White House Grill, which is a great Italian restaurant. We went out with some of our friends too, Heather, Tyson, Jeff and Natalie. We had a great time!! Yum, it was good!
On my birthday I waited until Nixon woke up to open my presents. That was not until 10 am when Nixon finally woke up.. Happy Birthday to me!!!
My mom gave me a Harry Potter snow globe. It plays the theme and everything, it's so cute on my mantel.
I let Nixon pull the paper off, it took forever because he thought each piece was such an accomplishment. We finally just ripped it off.
My Aunt Connee sent me this present and it had a flatten bow, she said to make it look good again before I opened the present.
I did, it's cute huh!
I realize now that all these birthday pictures of are me in my pajamas. I did get ready for the day, I promise.
This is a video of Nixon doing his animal noises, it's freakin' funny.
