Pointers to a 10 year oldI-65 Musings
You might have noticed that I normally don't participate in tags. Not because I don't like them- I love reading yours- I'm just feel the pressure to come up with clever things and I always feel like I come up short. It's like blog peer pressure sometimes so I just ignore it. (Every PBS after school special would be so proud.)
BUT, my sweet friend Becky tagged my blog with some Love, so I'm passing on the love. She asked me to name 5 things I love (nice at Thanksgiving, right?), so that's easy!
In no particular order:
1) Dryer sheets in the winter- they sure have helped with the constant snapping lately.
2) iPhone/ TiVo/ Garmin GPS for running- every gadget that my hubby has made us get over the years. I love them all. I'm addicted. Like he said I would be. I don't know if I like that after all.
3) Remote controls for most everything in this house- we just need one for the fireplace and then we might use it.
4) Baby gates- we have 2 that are strategically placed right now and we couldn't do without them. I don't know what we're going to do about the Christmas tree this year? Can anybody envision a tree with ornaments just on the top and a cage around the bottom? That's what I'm thinking about...
5) Jesus, my family, health, good friends- all the things that you would expect to be on this list. I am extremely thankful for them all and have my nice list of 30 here from my birthday if you want to be serious. I just thought of these silly things that I'm thankful for this morning!
So, I'm supposed to pass on the love to 5 other people's blogs (but don't feel like you have to participate if you have family in town and you're cooking, etc- just get to it when you can):
5. Larry (that's right- a boy. You should see Larry's post yesterday about what his 5 year old Joshua's thankful for)
And if you want to participate and start your own, that would be fine, too. I could list about a dozen (or more) folks whose blogs I love. If you are down there on the right, then I love your blog!
I think that you're supposed to title things about a wedding as belonging to the bride and the groom, but who are we kidding? And especially since the bride is one of my very best friends- it's her wedding. But she did marry a wonderful man named Chris- so in case his family is reading this- it can be "Laura and Chris's Wedding".
We're headed to Austin, Texas for Laura and Chris's wedding!
Jason and I are flying out.. oh, okay.. NOW and the kids are staying here with Connie and Irv! Thanks Nana and Grandpa!
Talk to you on Sunday!
The dreaded time has come to trade out my clothes for the next season. Our closet isn't big enough to hold enough clothes for all seasons, so we just take it the 2 seasons at a time- you know- dead of winter (50 degrees) and summer (104 degrees).
You've gotta love a matching hat and sweater- even if he looks a little sketchy- like he could steal your Cheerios at any minute. I mean, can I puh-lease have a few cute things with boys? Why do the girls get all the cute stuff?
Here's Henry before pre-school today playing on his little car. He pushes this thing around the living room and kitchen all the time- except when I'm trying to record him doing it.
He's walking most of the time now and still looks a little intoxicated, but he's getting the hang of it.
Thanks for all your well wishes. I am feeling like a human today thanks to some steroids and antibiotics (sorry, Annie). I had a bad sinus infection and have cut it off at the pass! Hooray! It's just hard to be sick when you're the mom. Anybody got an Amen for that??
At the Dunham home.
One child who thinks he IS Buzz Lightyear (we are going to have to surgically remove this costume):One child whose favorite toys are in the trash (ok- recycling bin): And a little explosion:
Whew! Halloween went on fo-e-vah around here! Anybody else feel like it wasn't this big of a holiday when we were kids? I think it was a little bit bigger this year because it was on a Friday, and I think we probably overdid it, too (can't believe I'm admitting that, can you?)!
This costume owned me because Jason T. REALLY looked like Howie from Deal or No Deal. And Gina could easily be a model, so it really wasn't a stretch! How cute are they? (Jason's head is already bald, but he changed his facial hair to look like Howie.)Craig and Beth were hilarious Spartan cheerleaders that bursted into cheer at any moment. And Beth has red hair, so it was funny to see her with a black wig. Larry and Amanda as Batman and Batwoman. And we were Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf. Jason said he liked this costume because he didn't have to smile for all the pictures. Isn't that mask scary? We didn't let the kids see it; it's that creepy!
I hope your Halloween was great and you're on into November now. I haven't noticed a SINGLE Thanksgiving decoration at Target or Wal-Mart. They've all gone straight to Christmas. I was even humming along to Christmas music today in Sam's!!
Don't forget to vote tomorrow... unless you're a Democrat... then you vote on Wednesday.
