Few thanksgivin pics

Here are a few more Thanksgiving pictures as promised.

This one was my MOM backflipped over the sink while BoBo washed out the baby oil she put in her hair. She thought it would help moisturize her hair...but instead she just looked like her hair had been rubbed in a fryin pan. It took everything out of me not to give her the spit yo-yo while she was in this vunerable position.



Then there was Mia who I helped get off to school in the morns so Kris could sleep in a bit. This is how she eatin in the morn still half alseep.



I also helped Mia do her homework after school.






And here is a picture o them on their razor scooters that Granny and Gramps bought for them. I wouldn't accept smiles for these pictures freak faces are so much better.

Thanksgiving

I went to Arizona for Thanksgiving/a week. I have some pictures and videos from AZ I still need to download. But when I got home off the plane i walked into THIS in my rooom from Richael. Sweet o him and I still have a rose on my desk from him a couple weeks prior. I am an undeserving woman. One day he will figure that out and its going to suck to be me. LOL.

Tis the season

With black friday approachin and Christmas toy commercials flooding the tv I just couldn't help but remember the toys that I saw on TV during this time and just HAD TO HAVE!! Those toys that I still remember seeing as a kid on the commercials and just hoping and prayin Santa would bring it. The ones I still remember over twenty years later. Here they are.
Barbie and the Rockers. LOVED this barbie. I got her and loved her frizzy hair, her white leather skirt and Derek her boyfriend.




This was the first doll I had EVER seen on tv that could WALK!! Cricket was her name. Both Kristina and I were amazed with this doll and just had to have it. I also remember my Dad mentioning how many batteries (like 8 D batteries) it took to run and the chance of us gettin it was slim. (o course this was the ONLY toy I actually remember my Dad not endorsing us having he loved Christmas and spoilin us).


Then there was heart to heart barbie. The barbie I saw on the commercials and wanted more than you would ever know. I just knew Santa would get it for me. It really was the ONE thing that I really really wanted for Christmas. However, on Christmas morn I was shocked to find that I didn't get it. However I did get a peaches and cream barbie. I am sure my parents thought it wouldn't matter and I would forget....but that is not true. I liked my peaches and cream barbie but I still wanted heart and heart barbie and it killed me any time i saw her on t.v. I can still hear little pieces of the advertisement jingle in my head. That commercial captivated me. Wish I could find that commercial I swear I would go straight back to being 6 again and just knowing that all happiness would be found in dressin my barbie in that big fluffy gown of hearts. She would be the envy of all th barbies.




Then there was the ULTIMATE toy!! Buzzy the Cookie cutter. I wanted this little Buzzie so so so bad and I was thrilled for Christmas to come so I could carve cookies and have unlimited fun with his cookie cutting abilities....however I was sadly disappointed when I didn't find him that morn. He was the "tickle me Elmo" of my time. My parents went to store after store after store after store tryin to find buzzy and could not find him ANYHWERE!!!!! I was really truely sad. However I did get a note from santa explaining things. I don't remember what thte note said but it explained that he tried and he was sorry. The good news is, I did get Buzzy eventually. I don't remember when or how but I did get him later.
And here he is in all his glory.


SO the moral of the story for all you parents out there. You may think that your kids will forget the toy that they always wanted for Christmas...but they won't. And you can think that another replacement will be just as great...but it won't. So if there is a toy your kids keep talkin about...get it..they will remember.

quote

"the Master's reward in the Final Judgment will not be based on how long we have labored in the vineyard. We do not obtain our heavenly reward by punching a time clock. What is essential is that our labors in the workplace of the Lord have caused us to become something. For some of us, this requires a longer time than for others. What is important in the end is what we have become by our labors."

October Recap

Threw some quick outfits together for Halloween this year. I was all excited for a top secret outfit to wear but a week b4 I saw the preview for the office and they STOLE my idea!! I was goin to do popeye and olive oil but due to network publication ruining my planI had to come up with a quick something else. Here is what i threw together.


Richael was a good sport. I am sure he wasn't too kean on dressing up but tolerated my dressing him while he was watching his beloved football game.


I settled on a quick Marge and Homer on a small fixed budget. Please note the blue leg hairs marge has (thanks chewy).


And here is Shaylas costume...so perfect I just had to throw a picture in of it!!


And of course our pumpkins. Its not halloween without pumpkins. Mine started gettin old quick so it looks all gummy and geriatric.

Vegas Ragnar

So I did the vegas ragnar this year. I heard so many people talkin about how fun the ragnars are that i just had to do one. SO when my vegas friend mentioned she was doing a team I invited myself onto her team.





Here i am striking a pose while running my last leg....6.7 miles!! Note: It sucks to have your last let be your longest cuz you are runnin on NO sleep...okay 3 hours.


Here I am running my other leg...a much fresher, cleaner me....b4 I got buff chaffe'.

Here is another beautiful team picture.


Teams decorate their vans and I just had to get pictures o this teams vans because they were sooooo funny.


They call themselves the running impaired. I was amazed at how good o shape some o the older people were. I had 3 significantly older men pass me along the run. I tried blocking 2 of them and the other one I just called a punk. It was not good for my ego but it kept me going.

MONDAY NIGHT IT STARTED TO STORMED WITH THUNDER AND LIGHTENING. MOST PEOPLE WOULD THINK THAT IS A BAD THING BUT IT LOVED IT. IT REMINDED ME OF MY MISSION. THE BLUE SKY AGAINST THE YELLOW SAGE IS SO PRETTY.


I JUST LOVE A GOOD THUNDER STORM NOTHING LIKE A GOOD STORM TO REMIND ME OF HOME.i TOOK THIS PICTURE BECAUSE THE LOVED THE CLOUDS, THREE DISTINCT DIFFERENT COLORS. SO PRETTY.




WE SETUP THE HAMMOCK ON THE UPPER DECK AND WATCHED THE LIGHTENING STORMS AT NIGHT. THE LIGHTENING GOT SO BRIGHT AT NIGHT IT WOULD MAKE YOU BLIND AFTERWARDS...LIKE A CAMERA FLASH DOES TO YOUR EYES AFTER IT GOES OFF IN THE DARK. SO AWESOME. COURSE THIS PICTURE WAS TAKIN JUST A FEW MINUTES B4 WE GOT COMPLETELY RAINED OUT.


I HAD ANOTHER PICTURE I DIDN'T POST BECUASE I LOOKED LIKE SUCH A DOG. IN CASE YOU DIDN'T HEAR..A TORNADO TOUCHED DOWN RIGHT NEAR TO WHERE WE WERE STAYING. WE GOT CAUGHT IN IT. IT WAS CRAZY. WIND WAS SO STRONG AND WE WERE GETTING BEAT UPON WITH HAIL THE SIZE OF QUARTERS!! WE WERE SOPPING BY THE END OF IT. WE DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS THE RESULT O A TORNADO TILL AFTER.



dirty dash II

SO HERE ARE A FEW LAST PICTURES O THE DIRTY DASH. HERE IS ONE O DAN GETTING ALL STRETCHED AND READY FOR THE DASH. i COULDN'T RESIST TAKING THE PICTURE WITH THE TIGHTS AND ROMPER AND ALL. PRICELESS..I SEE A NEW PROFIL PICTURE HERE FOR SURE!!





HERE IS ANOTHER FAV. i LAUGHED SO HARD WHEN I LOOKED OVER IN MY PASSENGER SEAT TO SEE ANDY'S MAN HAIR ALL MANGLED IN HIS TIGHTS. LOL. HE TRIED TO COVER WHEN i TOOK THE PICTURE BUT I SNUCK ONE IN LATER. LOL.



WE ALL RODE BACK IN MY CAR SO I BOUGHT GARBAGE BAGS I MADE THEM ALL WEAR TO KEEP MY CAR CLEAN. WE FELT LIKE TRUE HOBOS WITH OUR GARBAGE BAGS AND DESPERATE NEED FOR A SHOWER.



THIS IS OUR GROUP HOBO PHOTO. IT WAS FUNNY CUZ EVERYONE ENDED UP COMING UP WITH THEIR OWN LITTLE OUTFIT TO WEAR. I ESPECIALLY LOVE DANS SUSPENDERS AND ANDYS ALADIN PANTS.



I HAD DIRT CAKED ON MY LIPS AND I WAS SO DRIED OUT I COULD BARELY STAND IT....THEN I LOOKED OVER TO MY RIGHT AND SAW THIS LITTLE BEAUTY. "HOW DO YA ALL FEEL ABOUT SKINNY DIPPING" i ASKED. "ARE YOU SERIOUS!?" DAN ASKED. AND I WAS...PRETTY MUCH. SO I TURNED THE CAR AROUND AND WE ALL GOT DOWN INTO OUR SKIVVIES AND CLEANED OFF IN THIS FREEZER COLD LAKE. i THINK WE MIGHT HAVE TO MAKE IT A DIRTY DASH TRADITION.

I have never gotten flowers from a guy before!! This was my first!! They were beautiful!!

For the cuteness

These look so cute!! I know you aren't supposed to overstimulate the kid but I think when you have an idea as cool as this you just don't have a choice in the matter.
