I was going to post a wordless Wednesday post with some dramatic or endearing photo of one of my offspring but found this instead. I had to share, too funny! Enjoy!

Oh my the drama that is being a preteen!

Thankful Thursday

I know, I know! Two in one day! I'm on roll!

I wanted to take a moment to share with all of you what I'm thankful for! Yes, of course I'm thankful for a awesome family, great friends, being an American, the ability to vote and most of all the ability to worship whom ever I should choose to worship!

OK, back to the point! But today, I'm thankful for something we take for granted. Something in a 100 years you would never ever guess. What is it you ask that I'm so thankful for today? Spell check. Yes, I said spell check. Whether your on the computer and use the computer spell check or you have a friend, husband or wife who will look over your writing and point out those pesky spelling mistakes! Consider yourself lucky! I'm about to show you what happens when those kind of things are absent from your life. It's sad, a travesty if you may.

Now, if I hadn't seen this with my own eyes I wouldn't have believed it. I took this pic while sitting at a stop light near the kids school. Who knows, maybe I'm wrong and they are having a Gage sale. You know I have a nephew Gage and I'm sure his mom on more than one occasion would have liked to have a Gage sale! Though it does seem suspect they are having a Gage sale and Gage is two letters away from being garage? Hmmm..... I'm just saying!

God knows I love living on the SOUTH SIDE!

Insert witty title

Thanks to all the nice comments about my last post! It's nice to know people enjoy what you are doing! And Amy, I have pics for this post so back off!! lol!

First let me say, I might not have voted for the now president elect, I do however respect him and recognize the history that was made with his victory. I can only hope that the change he promised will be beneficial for all and bring this country back together. I pray and hope that he prays and asks for God's guidance and that the Lord shall bless him and his family. That's all I've got to say about that!

Now on to more fun stuff! We have a busy last weekend like most, I'm sure! Halloween was a blast! We spent the night with friends and family at TJ and Angela's for trick and treating plus a kids party that followed. Everyone had a good time and if I heard right this party might become a tradition! How fun that would be! Absent from the pics are the boys! They decided we were not cool enough to join and would rather be with their friends! Me, not cool? Whatev!

The Motley Crew. Suprised this pic turned out since it only took ten
adults, one malfunctioned fog machine and 100 lbs of sugar! The princess, diva herself, Eliza! Don't let those big brown eyes
fool you! She makes Bobby cry!

Stealth Ninja Caden

Hayley?! Is that you? Long are the days of
princess' and cowgirls. Sigh...

Give me a S - Y- D - N - E - Y, SYDNEY! I'm so not a cheerleader
and actually cringed a bit when this costume was discovered! Oh well, it was free!

What can I say?

This blogging thing is a thorn in my side! I think I have witty, great things to say and as soon as I start typing I lose my train of thought, I have multiple run on sentences and all is lost! I really do adore, fawn over and become jealous of those born with the ability to be smart, witty and elegant in their writing! I think I'm witty when it comes to one on one convo's but when it comes to typing my crazy thoughts in my head, all bets are off! I'm insecure and jealous! I admit it! I secretly want to be a great story teller and blogger, just like Pioneer Woman or Courtney over at C jane enjoy it! Their words just fall onto their computer screens as soft as the snow falling in January! See, how corney is that metaphor? Is that even a metaphor? Is metaphor even spelled right? Maybe I should have paid closer attention in English class!
I had big hopes for this blog! I not only wanted to share photos of my platinum blonde offsprings, I wanted to share the thoughts, opinions, and just crazy dreams of this mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend and most importantly, child of God, with those who even cared this blog existed.
I know I have a problem with the overuse of exclamation marks! I just want you to know I'm excited! I know that run on sentences can go on forever and never really have a point and that I should know where to stop but I just keep going and going hoping my point gets across and....wait, dang it, I did it again, another run on.......well you know, you get the point, don't you?!
So to those who still read this...thank you! I know I'm inconsistent, long, a violater of most grammatical laws but I love blogging! I just wish there was another key that expressed my excitement other than this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
