Fall Family pictures

Here is a sample of our Fall family pictures for this year.
We had them taken at Wheeler Farm by Abbey Kyhl (http://www.abbeykyhl.com/) and let's just say that it was getting late and dark and Mommy was cold and Caleb was not in the mood. BUUUUUTTTT .. not too bad considering all of that. She did a GREAT job! Here are just a few of my favorites.

Things that make you go "Hmmmm"

OK, so I got this email that many of you may have already seen but they truly are questions that make you wonder ...

* Can you cry under water?
* Why do you have to 'put your two cents in'... but it's only a 'penny for your thoughts'? Where's that extra penny going to?
* Once you're in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?
* Why does a round pizza come in a square box?
* What disease did cured ham actually have?
* How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?
* Why is it that people say they 'slept like a baby' when babies wake up like every two hours?
* If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?
* Why are you IN a movie, but you're ON TV?
* Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?
* Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They're going to see you naked anyway.
* Why is 'bra' singular and 'panties' plural?
* Can a hearse carrying a corpse drive in the carpool lane ?
* If the professor on Gilligan's Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can't he fix a hole in a boat?
* Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They're both dogs!
* If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap, why didn't he just buy dinner? * If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?
* Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?
* Why did you just try singing the two songs above?
* Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?

My "Keener"

Does it say something about my house when my 2 year old insists on "keening" all the time? He is OBSESSED with the broom, the mop, the dust rag. Too bad I am sure it won't last until he is old enough to actually do a really good job!!!

My new "addiction"

I have a new addiction. OK, maybe it isn't so new but it has newly become an addiction. :)
Scentsy candles. I had heard about them a lot and had seen them at boutiques and fairs but had never purchased one. (I am cheap and didn't want to spend the money on it when I wasn't SURE I would love it.) My good friend, Pam, was having a party so I decided to finally try one out to support her at her party and ... I LOVED IT! I now have a couple of them as well as numerous scents. I had always had a bunch of candles around my house but I am loving these so much more! I can just use one and I can smell it through my whole house and the wax is reusable and lasts FOREVER! OK .. no I am not a consultant .. I just LOVE them.
Because of this I want more, more, MORE! However, I can't spend ALL of our Christmas shopping money on them so I am having an online party to HOPEFULLY earn some more yummy scents for my house!
If you would like to give them a shot or if you have already become addicted and just need some more scents OR if you want a car freshener or smaller room freshener, etc, etc, please go to this site and select my Party (go to "My Events" or else "Place An Order" and select my name) or else just shop online and then email me your order and I will turn it in to the Consultant. I am going to close my party on November 22nd (a week from Saturday) - Happy Shopping and Thanks for helping me make my party a success!

State Championship Game

As you will notice by the scoreboard on the side of the blog - The Bingham Silver Gremlins received their first "L" this week. It was a sad time for the boys who had worked so hard all season and then lost their final game - The State Championship! However, we are SO very proud of them for having an UNDEFEATED SEASON up until that point.
They practiced hard, played hard, made some great friends, and grew - physcially, mentally, and emotionally.
We had an AWESOME Team this year and have such mixed feelings about the season ending.
Until next year ....
(Photos to follow soon.)

Christmas music

So I am driving home from Parker's football game last Saturday and flipping through the radio stations trying to find something to listen to since, for once, I was all alone in the car. I hear a Christmas song and think it must be a commercial for some store that is looking for early Christmas shoppers or something. However, another one comes on right after that one ends .. and then another one. I then realize that this particular radio station must be playing Christmas songs already!!!! That is just WRONG!!! It was November 1st!!!
However, the more I thought about it .. the more I kind of got into it.
Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday and we really didn't do as much celebrating as we normally do this year so I decided I will put all of that pent up "celebrating" into Thanksgiving and Christmas instead. Soooo .. 'tis the Season! I am listening to Christmas music in my car - ALREADY!!!

Snow, Snow, Snow!!!

I have ALWAYS loved the winter and the snow, etc, etc.
Blame it on my low iron, blame it on my low blood count, I don't know what it is but MAN IS IT FREEZING this year!!!!
I still LOVE Winter, though, and am so excited that Fall has come and Winter is coming!!! (Yes I am watching it snow out my window as I type this.)
Hopefully I can figure out how to stay warm so I can enjoy it as much as I normally do.
