Angry Chicken. . .

Have you checked out her site, yet? Look at these ridiculously cute shoes in her post! If only my kiddos were still little. . .

I wonder how hard it would be to felt some slippers for me and the kiddos? Oh, how I need some! And the options available?! The sky's the limit!

Pictures from our trip. . .

O.k. I don't know why, but these pictures are out of order posted and not exactly as I'd like them. Anywho, here's what you're looking at.

Kiddos in our room after the rehearsal dinner. SuperBoy was not a happy boy. Sleepy boy sums him up, and I came home around our 9 o'clock bedtime, so it's not like we partied hard, lol.

Outside P.F. Chang's. We had the rehearsal dinner at Buca di Beppos and it was delish.

On my Aunt CeCe's front porch in Wheeling as we headed for Cincinnati.

Yep. Aunt CeCe's living room.

A rainbow on our way to Aunt CeCe's driving up I-81.

SuperBoy pre-wedding, doing what he does best.

Danielle, Jessica, SuperGirl and SuperBoy pre-wedding.

SuperGirl getting her hair done.


Just starting to get her hair done. I don't know why all these pics loaded backward in different groups. Hmmmm....

SuperKids with Jessica at the reception.

My flowers.

SuperGirl and her Aunt Jody.

Jody and her family.

I apologize about the color in these shots. When I get pics from Jody, I'll post them.

Jody and Jon before they shoved cake in each other's face.

FYI. . .

I'll be out of town for my best friend's wedding starting tomorrow. I leave tomorrow and return Sunday, I think.

Take care and have a blessed week,

New Flower Bed. . .

It's not much, but it makes the house look a little better. It's certainly better than grass up against the house; and besides that.............. I was able to get all of it half price at Lowe's. :)

SuperBoy's Apron. . .

Here is the train apron I made last week for SuperBoy. He's been wanting one for a while and I found some awesome train fabric and a deep royal blue batik that matches wonderfully. The apron has for pockets across the front for various things. Hopefully no frogs or lizards enter the picture. :)

News To Me. . .

I didn't know this until last night at the dinner table, but it seems my 4 year old son knows Harry Connick, Jr. Yes, THE Harry Connick, Jr.

It all started simply enough. I asked the kids if they'd like Frank Sinatra, HCJ, Michael Buble, etc. for dinner music. (It was just me and the kiddos eating pot pies, to put it into perspective.) SuperGirl opted for no music this time, while SuperBoy asked for HCJ.

He then starts into this story of how HCJ was at my in-laws a couple of years ago (when he was 2) eating dinner. Superboy sat between HCJ and Papaw. After numerous questions, we find out that HCJ lives in California, picked SuperBoy up and drove him to my in-laws. SuperBoy also mentioned he didn't have to use his car seat because he was big enough and didn't need it. SuperGirl asked SuperBoy to describe what HCJ looks like and he said he looks like Michael Buble. SuperGirl then asked what Michael Buble looks like, to which SuperBoy replied "Harry Connick, Jr." Turns out HCJ has black and blue hair and also spent the night at the in-laws. Seems SuperBoy, HCJ and the in-laws all slept in the family bed together, with HCJ in the middle. I asked if SuperDad, SuperGirl or I were there and he said no and he didn't miss us. Granted, he's never stayed at my in-laws without us before. ???

And he appears to totally believe this story. Seriously.

On another note, he's voting for one of my husband's friends for President this year. He rarely even sees him. We have no idea why, but he said he would vote for Dale. SuperDad just tells him, "I'm sure he'd apreciate your support."

I love the imagination, but geez, it's kind of scary, too.

SuperGirl. . .

Getting ready for last Tuesday's tea party at Girl Scouts. . . The subject was manners and they had great fun!

Received in an email. . .

Once upon a time in a village, a man appeared and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10 each.

The villagers, seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest and started catching them. The man bought thousands at $10 and, as supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their effort.

He further announced that he would now buy at $20 for a monkey.

This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again. Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer increased to $25 each, and the supply of monkeys became so small that it was an effort to even find a monkey, let alone catch it!

The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50!

However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now buy on behalf of him. In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers, "Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at $35, and when the man returns from the city, you can sell them to him for $50 each."

The villagers rounded up all their savings and bought all the monkeys.

They never saw the man nor his assistant again, only monkeys everywhere!

Now you have a better understanding of how the stock market works.

You Go Girl. . .

I'm as tired of anyone of Angelina, but I have to give her major kudos for putting it/them out there. Literally. I love this tastefully done shot of her on the cover of W, taken by none other that Brad Pitt.

In many areas, it's hard for nursing mothers to feed their children in public. I know I was "offered" a more secluded place to feed my children a time or two and declined. If they don't eat in the restroom/dressing room, why should my child?

Here's the article from Comcast. Please let me know if it doesnt' come through.

Pumpkin Time. . .

The kiddos and I went to pick pumpkins yesterday. $5 for the smallest ones?!? Well, not the smallest. The Baby Boos and ones like-sized were 2 for a dollar. :)

Have You Heard of Acorn?

They're registering people to vote over and over! What a fraudulous thing to do! One man admits to signing up around 72 times! With only 26 days left until this presidential election, someone has to fix this!

No thoughts of my own. . .

Seeing as how I have no exciting news, and no camera to share pictures at the moment, I'll share another picture I just found at Tin Cup Chalice. I thought of you when I saw this, Rachel. :) Thank you for the original post, Miss Caron!

(Click the pic to enlarge if you don't have your bi-focals on you.)

Have a great week everyone!
