Gopher Issues

Ok so I went outside a few weeks ago and there was a small little hole in our yard. I called the maintenance people and they told me to go buy some bait. Well of course I didn't and today when I went outside there are several holes and dirt mounds from this obnoxious critter. So I got online to see what I can do and it says "Dig a hole 6 inches deep and buy a gopher probe and probe underground until you find the start of the tunnel. Once you find that stick 2 traps down there." Ya right. Who in there right mind is sticking their hand down a gopher tunnel to set traps. It also said that if there are mounds in your yard they are probably getting ready to nest. So we may have a hole fam damily of gophers soon. I called the maintenance people back and said that they better come out or they wont have much of a yard left. And of course they havn't come out yet. Oh well.

Well I finally gave in and Wayne got an xbox 360 and halo 3 and has spent several nights playing live with some of the old gang. I don't know how they can stay up so late. He went fishing last week and said it was sooooo cold but has never caught so many fish. I'm taking his word on it, I have yet to see pictures. ha ha.
The past 2 weekends have been cold and snowy. The snow doesn't last more than a day and it's only enough for the kids to play for awhile. During the week it's 60-75 and nice. Although the mountains look pretty. The tops are covered in snow and the bottom half is still the fall red and orange colors.
We went to Gardner Village last week. If you havn't been there, they decorate this little village of shops with all these witches and pumpkins and it's fun just to walk through it. The witches scare Brooklynn but Parker and Kendra love to see all of them.
I've put off costumes long enough, I think it's time to go shop for them. They know what they want to be, I just need to do it before all that's left is getting a sheet and putting holes in it for a ghost.
I know most people don't want to think about Christmas yet but if you are coming up to visit we want to do another Christmas party get together like last year, it was fun.
