The MOST wonderful time of the year.

Yes, I go crazy on Holidays. It's just me. So this year, we added yet another Christmas tree to our repitoire! It's a lovely flocked adventure. And the day after Thanksgiving, it blazed to life! Presley got to put the first ornament on- her PRECIOUS-the Frosty ornament. Indy followed with his LINUS that actually tells the whole Christmas story. (It will make you vaclempt!) And Kenz with her Island Princess Barbie.
Then, there is a shot of our resident, Cindy Lou Who and the other Who's in whoville. AHHHHH, could anything be better than this time of year! DECK THE HALLS BABY!

It's Autumn Time...(well it WAS anyway!)

For the first time ever, I raked leaves. True, yes! I wanted my kids to have the thrill of jumping into leaves. We had a great pile. Unfortunately, it was a wee bit late in the season and they were all crushed and prickly. BUT, it's all about the memories. ANd can you believe it is november and that day was 68 degrees! HEllo!

I just have to share the funny and smart things my kids have said this past week.
At Church, Indiana was being disruptive and so I was telling him to put his stuff away. Finally, after he was very frustrated with me, he said, "MOM, sometimes I don't understand HUMAN like you old guys!" I had to laugh.
Then this past week, Brent was on business and landed in Washington DC. When Presley would ask where he was, he would say, DC. So, the next day, when she spoke to him, she asked again, and he replied that he was on his way to north carolina. To which she adamantly responded, "NO DAD, you're in ABCD!"
And today, sadly, she FINISHED MY SENTENCE FOR ME!!! I said, "Do you want some milk in your...(brainfreeze)."
"Cereal. Yes mom."
AT TWO!!! I tell you, give me twenty years and I AM THE NOTEBOOK!!!

We had a great Halloween this Year! I was able to dress up in orange and black and help out at school and the kids had fun. McKenzie and her teacher ended up BOTH being Alice in Wonderland. So cute! Indy was about the most handsome superman out there and Presley, was little Cindy Lou Who, who is no more than two. (She looks just like her!)
I got down with my dark self for Trick or Treating as the evil Queen from Snow White. Brent didn't want to be left out so he borrowed my Maleficent costume and dressed up as a different kind of queen. (Ha ha)
Anyway, we had a great time with our neighborhood and enjoyed the milder weather! After the trunk-or-treat, we went to my brothers annual haunted garage. It is fun for the kids to be part of that as well. He was his usual gruesome self, and his wife, made a decapitated Marie Antionette costume. Amazing! In fact, there is an article about it in the Des News if you want to follow this link:,5143,695223463,00.html
Anyway, hope you all had a great halloween. Now, can it possibly be NOVEMBER?!
