I Love Public Transportation!

This guy was checking out his tonsils for the entire trip.
That is, except for when he was using the mirror to
look out the window BEHIND him!

Honey Extraction

We've been busy toiling away at extracting honey for the holidays. Late...late...I know.

I'ma just do a quick post of the pictures from this summer's extraction:

Uncapping the frames of honey...

Ta-dah! Our super awesome Extractor 4000!

Pouring and straining the honey...

We got these cool heat-shrink seals for the jars...I had to lobby fiercely. But it was like doing Shrinkydink after Shrinkydink after Shrinkydink, so it was well worth it...

Some of the end results...


Congratulations, Eric & Julie!

We scrambled to get at least one floor cleared of moving paraphernalia (I don't think Ken will forgive me any time soon...) so that we could have a Surprise Mini Shower for Julie.

Kinda like our old girls' nights, just with a baby theme. We had baby movies all queued up: Daddy Daycare, Look Who's Talking, 3 Men and a Baby...

I made pink favors - melon candle, papaya lotion & bodywash, pouf, cellophane, pink ribbon, baby footprint, pink marker & Voila! Favors!

And check out the napkins! Ma ha hah aha ha! I made'em into diapers!

During dinner, we had various games. This one was 'Make Yourself a Mummy.' 1 roll of toilet paper 2 minutes = prize for the most coverage.


Behold my squirrel-proof pumpkins!

I'm sick of those little A-holes digging through my pumpkins looking for seeds. Eat styrofoam, bitches!


Moving the Hives

We moved the hives from the farm to a strip right in front of where Ken and Bruce work. Right... In... Front... Rather, they moved'em, I got a migraine and fell asleep on the hill.

We're gonna have to build a fence of some sort. Rather, they're gonna have to build a fence, I'm ready for another nap.


Happy Birthday, Ed!

Boy, did I think that this night was going to end with a trip to the hospital. Last time we were with these guys and heard the words, "Let's see who can stay standing the longest," we had to cut short our sledding trip, the fire department had to get Ed down the hill and months of physical therapy ensued. So when we found this playground during a walk after dinner, naturally I assumed...
