Trick or Treat!


He lost it!

Jacob lost his first tooth this morning! It was a fun story. I asked him if he would eat apples if I cut them up and put them in his lunch. he said no, because they hurt his tooth. So I said "we need to get that tooth out of there!"...."do you want me to try the door thing?" I never would have thought he would want to! This is something I had told him my parents had done for my loose tooth. Tied some floss to it and then tied the other end to a door handle and closed the door really fast, making my tooth fly out.

He was all for it. I said how about after school, since he had about 20 minutes until he had to leave. "No...let's do it now. Then I can show all my friends." It took us 3 tries, but I finally got the floss tight enough it wouldn't slip off. Tied the other end to the refrigerator door...told him to close his eyes...slammed the door...a little "Ouch!" and there it hung from the refrigerator!

He was soooooo excited! He said "I can't believe it! I thought my tooth was never going to come out!" It had hung on for about 10 weeks. He thinks he's getting $500 from the tooth fairy tonight... we told him he'll get 500 pennies!

The times...they are a changin'

So we had a Halloween Day at gymnastics today. Most of the kids wore their costumes and the teacher did too. The twins were Spider man and the black Spider man. There was a Belle from Beauty and the Beast, Mr. Incredible, Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz and Mr. Joe was a pirate. Lukey was looking at all the costumes and looked at Mr. Joe and said "What DVD is your costume from?" LOL!!!

Keepin' it real

So I added music up to my blog today. And I was sitting here listening to my varied taste in music and it's all over the place. The Beatles, James Brown, Sting. I said to my husband, "my eclectic music taste", and he said "yeah". So I told him "That's how I roll.... I'm keepin' it real". That made me laugh.

Tag...I''m it x 2!

I got tagged by Jana and Stephanie ....so here goes.

Here are the rules of tagging that I am supposed to follow:

1. Link to your tagger, and also post these rules on your blog.

2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.

3. Tag 7 people at the end of you post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.

4. Let them know they are TAGGED by leaving a comment on their blog.

OK...so 7 random things about me.

1) I was robbed at gunpoint at work when I was working as a bank teller. It was terrifying!

2) I knew in my gut when I was young that I would only have boys as children...and low and behold, 3 boys later here I am!

3) I was terrified of moths until about 2 years ago. I'm not sure what cured my phobia, but when I was younger I would get hysterical when moths flew around me. Like screaming and freaking hysterical.

4) My husband and I got tattoos on our 3rd or 4Th date. It's so not us...but it's kind of fun to have that silly story down the path of our lives.

5) I didn't have a honeymoon. We bought our home and moved in 5 days after our wedding.

6) When I was a kid I used to love eating carrots and potato chips together. I know it sounds weird, but that was so delicious to me!

7) The car I drove to school when I was 16 was a 78' Ford Custom Cab truck with cow rails on the back. And the topper of that ice cream sundae of a vehicle was that it was butter yellow....Guess what...I parked a block away from school and walked the rest of the way.

OK...who should I tag??? I guess I'll shoot this over to
and Kim
Can't wait to see your random facts!!


So I got this adorable card in the mail yesterday from my friend Greta who lives is MS. I knew it was from her right away! Isn't it adorable?? Now I go to open and read her Happy Halloween greeting and what do I see....a blank card. Which of course got me laughing so hard on was on the edge of tears. Luckily at that moment I had her on my AOL aim, so we had a good laugh over it. From one crazed mom to another...this card said it all. Sometimes silence speaks volumes!!

40...6...and Georgie

So what a weekend!! On Friday night we had a surprise 40th birthday party at a local hot spot for a friend of mine from Bunco. We had a blast...drank a bit to much...ate a bit to much...and cursed a bit to much...oh well. Good times!!

Saturday was our family Birthday party for Jacob. He's six...wow!!

Then Sunday brought the friends birthday party. It was held at a bouncy house place called pump it up. there were about 12-15 kids, so it was manageable. they all had fun!

And last but not least...this is George. My mom found this little guy in her back ally all beat up and starving. She cleaned him up and took him to the vet. The kids fell in love with him, so now he's ours. he's really a very good puppy. He hangs out in his bed and has only had a few accidents in the house over the last few days. I think the boys are really going to love having a dog. And he's so small he can go pretty much everywhere with us. Another good deal is he doesn't bark. Isn't he a cutie??
