Wreath Building

I found an old wreath that needed some extra special care and Tater wanted to help! I took all the old stuff off. Tater took all the 'decorations' I gave him to put on the wreath and did his own creation...

Who's Chasing Who?

Turns out that Tater and Tot moved the ornaments around to have Robin chasing Cat Woman, the Bat Mobile was chasing some Bugs Bunny ornament. It was funny to hear why which ornament got moved... Even without the knowledge of the Borg and Enterprise, they had the Borg chasing the Enterprise. Very funny.

Simple Toys

While I let my boys on the computer I found THIS POST from DOF to be interesting. I read the Simple Toys article. It said the same thing that I have read in other articles. It is also something my sons' speech therapist mentioned. I have 'star wars galactic heroes' for the boys to play with (little dolls for boys)... along with marbles, toy cars and dinosaurs. It certainly lets their imagination run wild... along with the ability to leave those little suckers all over.

We'll see how long I last on this. I am waiting for the 'gameboy' kinda of game to come into their life. I know that as long as my boys ride their bikes, play on their play set and with their heroes and dinosaurs... I'll let them have computer time. I'll just have to play it by ear on the handheld games.

What do you think?

More Humor for Dreaded Wednesday

Found HERE:

Stuffed Turkey

Baby Bruno was sitting in his grandmother's kitchen,
watching her prepare the Thanksgiving meal.

"What are you doing?" Bruno asked.

"Oh, I'm just stuffing the turkey," his grandmother replied.

"That's cool!" Bruno said.
"Are you going to hang it next to the deer?"

= = = = =

A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store, but couldn't find one big enough for her family. She asked the stock boy, "Do these turkeys get any bigger?" The stock boy answered, "No ma'am, they're dead."

= = = = =

And from HERE.

# What did the mother turkey say to her disobedient children? If your father could see you now, he'd turn over in his gravy!
# If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring? Pilgrims!
# Why did the turkey cross the road? It was the chicken's day off.
# If the Pilgrims were alive today, what would they be most famous for? Their AGE
# Why can't you take a turkey to church? Because they use such FOWL language
# What are the feathers on a turkey's wings called? Turkey feathers
# What's the best dance to do on Thanksgiving? The turkey trot
# Can a turkey jump higher than the Empire State Building? Yes - a building can't jump at all
# What do you get when you cross a turkey with an octopus? Enough drumsticks for Thanksgiving

Humor for Dreaded Wednesday

Very Thankful this is NOT my family. I couldn't help but laugh when I read it!

Print and give copy to each guest that enters your home


1. Don't get in line asking questions about the food. "Who made the potato salad? Is it egg in there? Are the greens fresh? Is the meat in the greens turkey or pork? Who made the macaroni and cheese? What kind of pie is that? Who made it? Ask one more question and I will punch you in your mouth, knocking out all your fronts so you won't be able to eat anything.

2. If you can't walk or are missing any limbs, sit your butt down until someone makes your plate for you. Dinner time is not the time for you to be independent. Nibble on them pecans and walnuts to hold you over until someone makes you a plate.

3. If you have kids under the age of twelve, I will escort their little butts to the basement and bring their food down to them. They are not gonna tear my house up this year. Tell them that they are not allowed upstairs until it's time for Uncle Butchie to start telling family stories about their mommas and papas. If they come upstairs for any reason except for that they are bleeding to death, I will tear their butts up and you better not ask why!

4. There is going to be one prayer for Thanksgiving dinner! JUST ONE! We do not care that you are thankful that your 13 year old daughter gave birth to a healthy baby or your nephew just got out of jail. The time limit for the prayer is one minute. If you are still talking after that one minute is up, you will feel something hard come across your lips and they will be swollen for approximately 20 minutes.

5. Finish everything on your plate before you go up for seconds! If you don't, you will be asked to stay your greedy butt home next year!

6. BRING YOUR OWN TUPPERWARE!! Don't let me catch you fixing yourself a plate in my good Tupperware knowing that I will never see it again! Furthermore, if you didn't bring anything over, don't let me catch you making a plate period or it will be a misunderstanding. And why are you making plates before you eat? You never bring a dish or offer a dime do you?

7. What you came with is what you should leave with!! Do not leave my house with anything that doesn't belong to you. EVERYBODY WILL BE SUBJECTED TO A BODY SEARCH COMING AND GOING OUT OF MY DOMAIN!!!

8. Do not leave your kids so you can go hopping from house to house. This is not a DAYCARE CENTER! There will be a kid-parent roll call every ten minutes. Any parent that is not present at the time of roll call, your child will be put outside until you come and get him or her. After 24 hours, I will call CPS!

9. BOOK YOUR HOTEL ROOM BEFORE YOU COME INTO TOWN!! There will be no sleeping over at my house! You are to come and eat dinner and go home or to your hotel room. EVERYBODY GETS KICKED OUT AT 11:00 pm. You will get a 15 minute warning bell ring.

10. Last but not least! ONE PLATE PER PERSON!! This is not a soup kitchen. I am not trying to feed your family until Christmas dinner! You will be supervised when you fix your plate. Anything over the appropriate amount will be charged to you before you leave. There will be a cash register at the door. Thanks to Cousin Alfred and his greedy family, we now have a credit card machine! So VISA and MASTERCARD are now being accepted. NO FOOD STAMPS OR ACCESS CARDS YET!

Home Work???

Besides the 'normal' homework, if they don't finish something at school they have to finish it at home. Trust me, I have volunteered and there is more than enough time for them to finish the work at school... unless they are goofing off. Hence, I don't mind having him do that kind of homework. But I now have to make a copy of it so Tot can do it as well.

Here's Tater busy doing his homework. I did NOT help him at all. He knew all the words and told ME what the first letter was on each one. Geeze.

There are so many people I read that could use an award. Who should I pass this award on to?

Sticks? She has lived through so much in her life and I have known her since High School? Yep, she gets one from me.

Mrs. Who? A woman who teaches children, has children and has to work through so many difficulties every day? Yep, another one.

Lemon Stand? How about a woman has so many items on her platter but she always has a kind word for everyone? Yep... this one's for you as well.

I could give it out to even more... at least 20 more names come to mind. But if I do it this way, I can give a few people this award every week until I get through my complete list (or they might get it from someone else - gotta give others a chance!).

There are so many people in this blog-o-sphere that have touched my soul one way or another and 'colored my world' with their kind words or comfort. Thank you... even if you didn't get the award from me today.

Three Years

and some times it seems just like time has not passed at all. I miss my dad. I love my dad. There are times I still talk to him about what is going on in my life. Just like I use to when I called him on the phone.

It amazes me how life continues without him. It is a cycle that we must all go through, live through. It has made me a different person.

So many things can change in three years. Tater is in Kindergarten, Tot is talking and walking. We live in a new house. My blog changed from something to let friends and family know about how you were doing and a list of happy thoughts about my kids to a scrapbook for and about my kids. And the list goes on and on and on. Though certain things don't change. The fact that I know the name of the Janitor at Tot's school (just like my dad knew everyone) or I can't remember the name of half the people I meet until I have talked to them 20 times! There is woman at Tot's school that I have breakfast with on occasion. I still have to cheat and look at the sign in sheet to see if her name is Kathy or Sue. My dad was that way with 'boyfriends'. He never got their names right. I always thought it was funny. It was one of the quirks that made my dad, well... dad. And every time I forget a name or meet someone new, I think of my Dad.

I love you Dad. Thank you for helping me become the person I am today.

Hair Cut Conversations

Tuesday afternoon we went for a hair cut trip... It was perfect that I saw THIS POST the next day. Go on, take a look. You won't be gone for a minute. And I couldn't post this yesterday because I wanted to leave the posts up for my mom's birthday alone.

We go to a place called Quick Cuts. You go in, sign in and wait for the next available person. Though I have made requests to wait for a particular person before... she was not working this week.

As we sit there waiting our turn... the boys found a book with different hair cuts in it. Initially the conversation went something like this:

Tot: Mom, mom, mom... make your hair red... like this
** it was a bright bright red **
Mom: Ahhh. No.
Tater: Mom, get all your hair cut off. Go bald!
Mom: I would be ugly bald and I don't think your dad would appreciate it.
Tot: Ohhh like this one
** it was some movie star ugly hair cut with the hair at the neck and over the eyes and striped **
Mom: No.
Tater: Get it cut just above your ears!
Mom: I would look like a mushroom, is that what you want?
Tater, Tot: YES!!!
Mom: No.

And the conversation continued over to the beautician. Yaa... they asked her to shave me... she said no. Then make me look like a mushroom. She laughed and said no. Thank goodness!!!

Yaa. Next time I get my hair cut without them. ;-)

Morning Conversation

You know the kids are not brushing their teeth if you hear a singsong voice. What's worse is when you go to check on them and this is what you hear:

Tater: trick or treat
smell my feet
give me something good to eat
if you don't I don't care
I'll pull down your underwear

Tot: I'll eat your underwear

Happy Birthday Mamaw

I found a poem on-line that was not quite what I wanted... so I plagiarized (it said I could) and changed the words so it fit better with my mom... it's her birthday!

For My Mom:

I really love my mom, and I
Never will forget her,
And all the things she does for me,
Like making me feel better,

Like when she tells me lots of stuff,
About cooking or watching the weather,
Or when she takes time from her busy day
So we can talk together.

Sometimes when I'm feeling sad,
She makes me glad once more,
With just a virtual hug
That takes away the pain without a single roar.

So happy birthday, Mom! I want
This day to be for you,
For everything you are to me
And all the things you do.


You are a wonderful mother. I'm just proud you are MY mom. Thank you for letting me be a part of your life. Particularly after those days you warned me that you brought me into this life and that you could take me out. GRIN. I can sooooooooo relate to that now. ;-) And you aren't going to believe it, but I found humor with that saying in it!!! BIG GRIN

Thank you. I love you.

I think those five words say it all.

Tink's At IT Again

I don't know whether anyone else has had pet wild spiders besides my family. First my mom with the spider that kept making a web over the back door of the laundry room. H.u.g.e. web. And my sister that had one that lived under her fridge.

But she did post a 'faceless' picture of me in one of her scrapbook pages on that post I linked to above. Now if someone would please put me in for a 'clothes makeover'. Then I could learn to dress for my uhhh body shape. Geeze. I just realized my hair was permed in that picture. That means it was over 6 1/2 years ago. EEEEEekkkkkkkkkkkkkk. I want my hair permed again!!!! And that weight!!! That means I was 10 pounds lighter!!! hahahaha. Such is life. I still want to get a free clothes makeover whether I lose weight or not! How do those people get on those shows???

Lots of Cool Links

It has been a very long two weeks. First the kids and hubby sick, then me. And I can't seem to shake it. Sucks But beyond that... here are some cool links:

Want to know about Space Stuff? I'm talking Stars and Astronomy.

Or consumer recalls?

How about an annoying game that Harvey posted?

This had me laughing out loud.

Puke is just the thing I need to read about since I have boys.

Nice to know I am right there with Mrs. Who on Blog Reading Level.

And being about a week behind on everything. I must say I love this post that Tink did for Tammi... might be because that boy is my Niece's son...

Lately I have been spending a lot of time reading how to get grip on life HERE.

There is a ton more out there. More later. I hear Tot screaming "No Tater, No" and what sounds like slapping. Of course I'm typing instead of running in there to see what is happening. Sigh. 8am and it has already started. Breath, relax, breath, relax. Hmmm. Now I hear laughter. Wonder what they did? Time to go find out.

Life Sucks When Mom Is Sick

Mom is sick. Yep, me. I sound horrible, I feel fussy and b.tchy but otherwise ok. Just need some sound quiet sleep. Not going to happen, but I can hope.

I was checking out blogs when I found this quiz below... I saw it too many places and didn't bother to find the links for all of them. Thank you whoever did it... it ave me something to post. It pretty much fits unless I get around someone with an accent... then I have a tendency to pick it up. Sigh. Done, later...

What American accent do you have? (Best version so far)


You're not Northern, Southern, or Western, you're just plain -American-. Your national identity is more important than your local identity, because you don't really have a local identity. You might be from the region in that map, which is defined by this kind of accent, but you could easily not be. Or maybe you just moved around a lot growing up.

A mother skunk gave birth to twins, whom she named In and Out.

One day In was out, so she aked Out,"Out go out and find In, In's out and I want him in, I've been looking for In outside for ages, I can't find In, he is out so go out find In and bring him in."

"What?" said Out.

"In's out, so Out go out find In and bring him In, I've been looking for ages and can't find In, I want In in, Out go out and bring In in, if you can find him."

So Out goes out to look for his brother In, and within seconds of leaving, he comes back with In in tow, and his mother asks "Out, how did you find In so quickly?"

(here it comes....)

"In stinkt."

and finally:

An enterprising journalist decided to get the scoop of the day by photographing the fearsome phantom that lived in the spooky old mansion house at the edge of town.

When he entered the house, armed with only his camera, the ghost decended upon him, moaning and wailing and clanking chains.

"I mean no harm; I just want your photograph," the journalist said bravely.

Pleased at this chance to make headlines, the ghost posed for a number of shots, and the happy journalist rushed back to his darkroom and began developing the photos.

Unfortunately, they turned out to be so underexposed that nothing could be seen in them.

He was distraught, and went to a local pub to drown his sorrows. Meeting his friends there, they asked what was wrong. Not wanting to tell the whole story, he simply explained with a single sentence: ......

"The spirit was willing, but the flash was weak."

Loving Brothers

The boys were running around 'attached' to one another. It was hilarious. I have no idea what they were playing but they had to have a hold of one another.
