I'm thankful for an eternal companion that I couldn't live without. He makes me happy, makes me smile, makes me crazy, and has a very tender heart. I am thankful Marshall, for all that you do!
Thankful for self reflection in the woods, Heidi's makeup, and cutting down trees on ATV's with the family!

Any of you who have done lunch w/ my kids and I know that these little gadgets are heaven sent. We were all at Winger's and we had six kidlets on the bench, moms on the opposite side, and they played and played and played. Education Bliss at its finest! LEAPFROG my children love you (especially the 3 year old who I can take ANYWHERE) Yes, it's worth it! (I have 3 and share wherever we go- they're great!)
This little doozey is hard to find- We managed at Ace Hardware- It is AMAZING STUFF. For crockpots, any type of stove tops, it takes off what oven cleaners won't... Need I say more- Read the label careful, don't use on painted metal surfaces, not a good idea. This is really liquid gold!!
My cousin convinced me to try diet stuff, since she's a drug rep, and I'm needing some encouragement. I am telling you, this stuff is DELICIOUS, and isn't supposed to last long. Can you believe people are selling it on Ebay????? I couldn't find it yesterday at Walmart, I'm on the hunt, cuz I'm not living w/o it....
Ok Robyn, here's another smelling issue I have, I can't help myself from smelling these. I think she has me beat though w/ at least 100 bottles in her pantry. I only have 4. I love them ALL!!!!

Boy had his first encounter with moto racing recently. He's really turning into a motohead by his choice, which is good. He got a motie (new to us) and has not stopped riding it. Last Saturday he entered a moto, his first one, had a few moments in the whoops-got a little dirt on himself, a little packed in the face plate, but dusted himself off and got back at it. He enjoyed it most of all, and that was the important part. Today they rode the Dunes in St. Anthony and he loved that as well. Ride on little boy... (Note to Scott, he wants a few lessons)

Here are two little girls who are getting ready to go to dance. Since Halloween was the next day, they went as Fairies w/o all the extra costume- I asked them to smile, they said cheese, and then I said "Let me see your eyes, so hence, Abbie shut her eyes- They are both doing very well in dance and love it. It is so funny to watch Abbie, I usually sit and laugh most of the class, she is a hoot! She likes to SHAKE IT!

Loving the Mining Ride- 1 of Paytie's faves
Auntie Susan and the girls, ready for some fun!
The Vipor, back, down, around and again...
Hold on tight you guys!!!
We love our Snoopy! He's the best!
Five things that I love about Knott's Berry Farm:
1. The nostalgia from being a nine year old and reliving it through my nine year old.
2. The Charlie Brown Gang
3. The look on Payton's face before, during and after the "freaky" rides.
4. Being able to walk onto every ride without waiting in lines.
5. The FOOD- have you ever ordered a Knott's Chicken Dinner? YUMMY-make sure to get berry pie added to that for pure satisfaction!
We had an amazing day, the weather was awesome, there were no crowds, we did walk right up to every ride over and over again, and it was priceless time with Aunt Susan! The kids could have passed on the Knott's Scary Farm theme however, but they have a whole new appreciation for skeletons, and "dead guys." Really honey, it's just a stupid plastic thing they buy at the dollar store, it's ok!! I promise! And, hey mom, why are all of the fake worker dudes heads covered with sacks? Well, you really don't want to know do you? No, that's ok mom, thanks.
Taadaa~! She was telling me that she felt like such a star there at the beach, having it all to herself. Everyone else in the vicinity was donning a sweatshirt, while my littlest babe's lips were turning blue. Not to worry, we had nice warm fuzzy towels waiting after they took their freezing ice shower to remove partial sand. Thus, pure heaven, perfect day at the beach, aah such tourists!

Well, I re-read my whining and changed the post to "Cleaning Sucks!" Brief, to the point, there it is. But I did really relate to this cartoon, and my moment for the day was, it's always great to have a special niece call you and ask you for your yummy recipe, she really made my day! Thanks Christine, your'e a sweetheart~

Oh, it's raining again Oh no, my love's at an end. Oh no, it's raining again and you know it's hard to pretend. Oh no, it's raining again Too bad I'm losing a friend. Oh no, it's raining again Oh, will my heart never mend.
Didn't you just love singing those old songs, and now looking back you can't believe you'd sing those out loud, let alone now that you know what the lyrics actually mean!!!!!!!!! Yikes. The eighties/nineties stuff- ya, but the overall favorite of mine was oh course... Grease!! I know, most of my young adult life I really believed I was Sandy, and one day I'd turn that slick talking Rick into "Danny" w/ the letterman jacket and we'd fly in the love bug away forever and ever...
Wake up Bev!
Anyways, this blog was for all you Seattlians, because we enjoyed the parade in the rain. You'd be so proud, no umbrella for me, just a light-weight jacket w/ my hood- I was prepared. Today was Shelley Spud Day- they have a festival devoted to a tater! All the floats had to have something "spuddie" on them. My kids were on a float for singing. Lindsey thought she'd become Hannah Montana, and was all drama- She's so fun. She said it was the best parade she'd ever been in (since it's her first)- Well, Spuds or no spuds, I thought of my rainy weather girls and held them in my thoughts while it poured down, w/ a little thunder and lightnin'. So here's to Spud Day, and to you, rain-lovin girls!!! Cheers!
Can you guess who is loving the songs- Look right in the middle w/ the pink hood over her head- Isn't she sweet, it's soaking wet, but she doesn't give up...
The boy is on the back row w/ the black jacket on, with a smile on his face. "It's Spud Day mom, and it's what farming and this community is all about." That's my boy! "Hopelessly Devoted To You!"

Two sisters that are cute and sweet, two little girls with pink toe-nailed feet.
Love to laugh and sing and play, only to fight over toys every other day
Are moms little helpers each busy day, I sure love them in every single way!
This is my nine year old boy who worked in the
field all day. From 8:00 am to 9:30 pm who drove the SEMI all by himself that picked up the hay. When mommy went to check on him, he said he'd be okay. But mommy's heart was not so well she'd thought she'd have to stay IN THE HOSPITAL!!!!!!!
Yes it's true, he thinks he old enough to drive. See all you city folk what us mom's in the country have to deal with. Don't worry mom, it's only a semi, I can handle it. I'm doing just fine. Ya, until he tries to drive my car to his friends house... He seems to wiser than his years, like 40!! My little man boy, is what I call him, he came that way and hasn't changed since the day he was born. Oh how I love that boy! Here he is ready for 4th grade, and off to school at 7:10 am to catch that country bus that HE LOVES!! Trust me he's upset w/ mom if we have to drive to school, cuz that's no fun!!
