A Surprised Blond girl.

My big boy!

She does this on purpose! Her mommy says,"Look like your mad C, look like your mad!"She'll be sorry for this one day!

IMPOSSIBLE to get them to look at the camera all together!

My oldest daughter, mommy to Blondie Girl & Rough Boy! My babies sure are cute!

Here is my son-in-law with Rough boy. I wonder where he learned it from?
We had a wonderful time. The weather was great. The kids semi-behaved. And I got lunch at historic Sprayberry's! So it was a great day!!

Being an only child isn't so bad...

You can play with Daddy and no one butts in on the play time. No one bothers you while you watch you DVD player. The world is your oyster. We found out why we haven't gotten a call in over a year for any new placements....They have on record we have 4 KIDS in our home. I have never had 4 kids in my home. I have more sense then that! AHHHh, but we all know keeping the paper work straight is what they do best.
It's been a nice lull however. I'm sure they are mad at me for nosing around and finding out this bit of info. So it may be another year before they call, if at all.
They need to be very careful in our county. Good FP seem to flowing out the back door, quicker than anymore can be pushed thru the front door. Know what I mean?

What a great Idea! My Christmas shopping is done!

Have you ever visited Tip Junkie? I love her blog. She is full of great ideas. Plus she's funny.
Note my new little button on the left side. (I imagine she really looks like this, santa hat & all)
She has come up with a great idea for the holidays. I am soooo tired of having the same old choices from the same old department stores for Christmas. I love finding unique things for the holidays and even better if the are hand made and one of a kind. (That's one of the reasons I'm addicted to Etsy now. thanks to Anita)
This is what Tip Junkie has to say about her latest great idea:

**Welcome to our Mom-prenuer Holiday Shop-a-thon! I'd like to encourage each of you to support other women and mother's this season buy purchasing as many of your gifts from Mom-prenuers like these!I'm so inspired by their talents and drive to help support their families. My hope is that you will be too. Please blog about your favorite products and don't forget to place your orders directly from them.The holidays will be here before we know it, so start shopping!**

So click on the little button (I don't make any money from this, I just think it's a great idea)
and see what these very talented women are making. I was in awe! And I do believe all my Christmas shopping has been taken care of! Go, go look. You'll be in awe too.

Two of my Three Cutie Pies

Meet my cutie-cute girl. I don't think I've posted pictures of her since she was born. Mmmm, about 18 months ago. She's changed alot. :p
As you can see David thinks his niece is a cutie pie too! My grandson is as blond as his sister, but I can't get him to sit still for 3 seconds to take a picture of him. He is 6 months older than his Uncle David. :) Notice how one is as dark haired as the other is blond!

If I were a smarter person

I could link to this blog and in particular this story. But I'm not, and I can't.

SOO go here, and read this "what I would like you to know" series that Rocks in My dryer is doing. I love her blog anyway, but this one of course speaks to what alot of us through everyday.

and just because I think you need a dose of cuteness out of this world: Here's my Boy!
