No more princess!

We have past the princess stage.
For now, I hope.

If you look behind her bag she's wearing
neon green and black striped stockings.

I think the weather up here put a damper on Halloween spirit.
After doing some asking around we ended up at
Who knew?
It was cool trick ot treating in a grocery store.
Each dept had a little game set up for the kids with treats as rewards.
Mullet man and the witch

Bakery dept

Meat dept

Produce dept

After Publix we drove around some neighborhoods
and found a really good one.
It was dark by that time so the pictures didn't turn out.
And then it rained!

This is after we got home.
No nose.
Makeup had sweat off.
She was wet.
But she was a very happy little witch!
Happy Halloween!

Until then...

Non profit endorsement

After just scrubbing down my kitchen I feel like I need to blog.
Here's the deal.
I can stand and clean a kitchen or bathroom all day
I LOATHE doing floors.
If I could just use a wet wipe I would.

Until now!

Holey Moley!

Since the discovery of the

I didn't think it could get any better.

Boy was I wrong!

This thing is awesome.

Seeds and Roots

This is the year that I thought Shelby was old
enough to carve her own pumpkin.
This post tells that story.

Daddy helped with the lid.

"It's cold!"

"Gotta get all the seeds and roots out."

Really getting into it

"Look at this root, Mommy!"

Daddy getting the seeds out for roasting later.

Second eye


mouth took a little longer


She is so proud of herself!
Mommy and Daddy are proud of her, too!
Job well done, Shelby!

Until then...

A crowd of 20,000 come together to perform for Oprah in
her season opener.

Jessica, this is for you

As you can probaby tell I do a lot surfing around Youtube.
Usually for what ever strikes me that particular day.
Well tonight I was in the mood to watch Casting Crown videos.
Watch this video and leave me a comment about what you see.
I was so excited that I picked it out.
I hope that you do, too!
Mom, you should catch it as well!

I'd like to thank the Academy...

My mom over in Weezer's Haven nominated me for this award.
She is one of my few follower's and one of my main inspirations for doing this blog.
Since my move to the Upstate of South Carolina, it has been the glue that has kept me linked to the happenings back home.
She and I have kinda been going through this blogging thing together and learning from each other as we go.
Thanks, Mom, for this Superior Scribbler Award!

I'm relatively new to the blogger scene and don't really have a following.
I do have one person in mind, though.
Hopefully with this nomination she will remember her password or start a new blog.
What she had written in the past was a window into her life.
So I nominate my sister, Ashley over on Welcome to my Crazy Life.

So thank you to all my readers for you time.
I'll do my best to make it worth your time!

Until then...

It's a school picture. What can I say?

This a proof copy of Shelby's school picture.
Judging by the way her hair looks, this was taken
A) after P.E.
B) after recess.

Kitty, You have a drinking problem

I have never laughed at a Youtube video like I did with this one.
Sebastian comes out of the bathroom with his head wet but it's from a drip.
I couldn't imagine what he would do with something like this.

Until then...

Here are some pictures of our great day!

No Matter...

No matter how old you are,
No matter how tall you are,
No matter how much you weigh...

You will never be too big to sleep in Mommy's lap.

Until then...
