Our little EIGHT month old !!!! Isn't he a cutie?!?!

Lexi got all dressed up for church....we got to church & she walked right in front of daddy who was holding Zander & didn't see her, knocking her to the ground. Ripped up her tights pretty good. The tears came......but she did survive ;-)

Nick had his first *friends* Bday party today. We started out just playing with all his race tracks until all the kids got here. The kids all had a great time. Nick said his favorite was the rely race we did (golf balls on a spoon). Lexi's favorite was musical chairs....which is funny cause she was out the first round & came & cried by me!! It was a fun party today!!!

We gave Hanna the prize for the best *pattern* on her necklace!! Must be a girl thing, huh?!?!

All the kids made their own *Candy Necklaces* Some were doing more eating than putting them together!!

SIX years ago...........

My first child had a due date of Oct 21st, 1998. Nothing happened that day, or the following, or the next, or even the next. We had to wait TWELVE days before something happened!

I was scheduled to be induced on Monday, Nov. 2nd, 1998. Sunday night about midnight, contractions started on their own. We waited until about 4 am & then headed to the hospital. Living with my parents at the time, it was a grueling, one minute car ride to the hosptial. They wheeled me up to the OB dept & about 5:30 am the doctor came in & checked me out. He broke my water at that time & that helped to progress things.

About 11:00 am I was given the ok to start pushing. I pushed, & pushed, & pushed some more. FINALLY, at 12:14 pm, Nicholas Philip Fischer entered the world!!

He is SIX years old today!!! On his birthday, he gets to attend school all day !!! Tonight we'll go to Happy Joe's Pizza for supper. Grandma/Grandpa will join us as well as Mitch & Eric I think.

I remember being in the hospital this ELECTION time of the year. They were going to wheel me down to vote. I passed. That year, MN elected Jesse Ventura for our Govenor. I remember some of the nurses pretty upset about that!! I wonder who will be upset tonight? The red or blue party???

I WILL be voting today, will you??? Get out & VOTE!!

Happy 6th Birthday Nick!! Wearing his birthday crown at school!! Right behind his ear is one of his best friends...Taylor!

We had such a busy Halloween night!! We started the night out by attending the party at St Paul's Church. They had different games for the kids, face painting & even a hay wagon ride! After spending about 45 mins there, we headed to the Amercian Legion to pick up a candy bag & some other goodies ;-) Then we stopped at Papa Murphy's for some free cookie dough for those in costume. We made our way back to Courtland & went to the Rec Hall for the Lion's Club Halloween party. We were there for about an hour. MORE games for the kids & lots of little prizes.

They had the judging of the costumes & Nick took 4th place in his age group & won $4.00 & Lexi took 3rd place in her group & won $5.00!! Zander didn't get squat!! I thought HE was the cutest too!!! OH well, we'll try again next year! After that we headed back to New Ulm. Lexi changed into her Dragon costume (which was warmer) for door to door trick or treating!! I forgot to get a picture of her in it!! Oops!

We stopped at our old daycare first & then to Grandpa/Grandma's. From there, Phil took Nick & Lexi (& managed to get Eric to go with too) to State Street where they went up/down about 4 blocks. Zander & I stayed at Grandma's. Lexi & Phil came back & Nick & Eric went around 3 blocks or so by Grandma's.

We have got the candy! We are gonna put it in the pinata we are having for Nick's bday party. He is having his first *kid* bday party on Sat the 13th. He has invited 8 of his friends from school. He is excited about it!! We are getting all the games & stuff planned out. Should be interesting!

I did some after Halloween shopping today........got a TON (like 34!) of costumes for next year. I spent over $300.00!!!!!! (There goes the profits on all the magazines we sold! LOL) I should easily double that next year & hope to do more! They were 75% off & they are really decent costumes. Not your cheap Target/K-mart/Wal-mart ones either! Mostly adult. If you are looking for something, let me know, I may have it!!

Nick wasn't afraid of the worms while he was bobbing for his apple!!

Lexi got a flower painted on her cheek!

Our little Fairy Princess :-)

Our little fireman is smiling...but he has his eyes closed!
