Under the Quilt

I'm here. You're here. Let's talk amongst ourselves.

Sheesh. It's been so long since I've been here that I almost forgot my login and password. I'm a bad, bad blogger. I've written many a posts inside my head but then I never seem to follow through and actually put them into writing. Here's the lowdown of some of the stuff I could've written individual posts about......

I bought this car off of Ebay. I know you're jealous. Well, maybe I should clarify I didn't ACTUALLY buy it. I saw it at the zoo and snapped a picture to send to my dad who is a car buff. I would love to have something this garrish to drive around in just to see people's reactions. Especially when I'm dropping the kids off at school and such.

Hurricane Ike decided to do a bit of damage to our pool as he whipped his way through Ohio. I guess this means no more late night skinny dipping sessions. Oh darn!

Here's another view of the tree with the whole root system. Pretty impressive, huh?

This is what happens when you try to get a teenage boy to do work outside. The hammock and the lazy cat won out over the nagging parents. Aren't they just too cute?

We did Halloween. Here's my ghost suckers. Scary.

And we decorated cookies.

This is the first year I dressed up along with the daycare kids. Think I'm scary enough? I had to lose the black hair partway through the day because A) it was irritating the heck out of my head, and B)I was scaring the little ones. I also dressed up for a party that Ron and I went to. I have photographic evidence, but Ron is also in the picture and I suppose I'll maintain his anonimity for him. I also have no idea how to photoshop him out or put a big dark blob over his face. Anyhoo, I dressed in doctor's scrubs, had a real stethoscope and everything. My nametag? Dr. Turnyur Hedenkoff. (hee!)

Someone else also dressed up for Halloween. Meet Wednesday Addams. Her complete outfit was purchased at Goodwill. I'm still amazed that we were able to find everything so efficiently and cost effectively. Even though my feet hurt after the trick-or-treat session it was well worth it. Jesse and her friend gave me all of their Snickers and Resse's cups . Score!

I will leave you with this image. No, it's not a dead bunny. Just one that's terrified stiff. Whenever it's toenail trimming time, Jesse lays them on their back on her lap. They don't move an inch the whole time. See the cute little bunny chompers?

    Yea! You're blogging again!

    You lost one heck of a tree! My mom lost power for about a day because of Ike. My brother lost power for 2-3 days. We have a close family friend in Cincy who had more damage (trees, basically) than her sister did in Houston!

    Your kids are getting older! Jesse looks a lot older to me in those pictures. I can't believe it! And Nate and the cat is so cute. :)

    i guess it's not original, but i thought jesse looked older too!

    Yep, she's been wearing eye liner. I know I'm probably a bad mom for allowing an 11 year old to start wearing make-up, but for now I'm choosing to pick my battles. And in the grand scheme of things around here, it is very minor. Liz, she not only looks old enough to be in college, but acts the part too. I get more frightened every day.
