Halloween Fun

I hope everybody is ready for their sugar high! Good times! We haven't always "done " Halloween. Sad, huh? We were too christian for it. can now judge me. Just kidding! However, we have always done the fall festivals or trunk or treat at church and we will sort of be doing that tonight. We will be at church which is also the Turnaround Christian Center/skating rink and Big Poppa will be preaching at midnight. I hope I can stay up that late. HA! They will be having an all night skate too.
So, I go to Wal Mart LAST night because that is basically the only place where we live to buy anything to find some kitty stuff for Silly. Well, because I went LAST night they didn't have any. She decided she would be Hannah Montana instead. After looking at the $20 plastic dresses we decided on a HM t-shirt with sleeves that are detachable (sort of 80ish). At least she can wear again. I let her wear her down with a head band for the full effect. She has some massive hair!
The Rock Star bought some Georgia pajama bottoms to wear. He wanted to prepared for the all night skate.
I love this explanation of "doing" Halloween.
I hope you have a good one.

Sad times

Poor Silly got her first :( face yesterday at school. She was being way too talkative. She was devastated. As soon as I walked in the door she met me at the bottom of the stairs to tell me about it. She immediately started crying. She has such a tender heart and takes pride in being well behaved. When she does something, lots of times she will ask me if she is obeying. Bless her little heart. She is so precious!
On another note, the Guitar Player is participating in a little mini concert this weekend and The Rock Star wants to buy her a rose. Awwwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeee! He was asking me all these questions about how it will keep until afterwards and how is he going to hide it. Good times! I don't know if I am going to be able to handle all of this dating stuff.

Our first outing with the youth was this past Sunday night. We took them to Judgement Journey. Several churches have something similar to this. We went to the one in LaGrange at Faith Baptist Church. If your ever in the area this time of the year they do it every weekend in October. Check out the intro here We enjoyed being with them and are looking forward to many other things to come.
Happy Hump Day!

Such a gentleman!

The Rock Star never ceases to amaze me. After church Sunday my Pastor's wife (which is his girlfriends mother and for the sake of future posts we will call her The Guitar Player b/c she plays the guitar) told me that he came to her to let her know that he really liked her daughter and that she could trust him because he was a good kid and that he would never put any kind of pressure on her. I got all teary eyed! I was sooooooo proud of him. In case he reads this, you make a momma proud and I love you with everything that is within me.

I know a lot of people don't use hairspray much anymore, but I do and I use the maximum hold stuff because I like for my hair to stay the way I like it all day long.
Anyway, have you ever sprayed your face with hairspray? Um, yeah, it's hard to pry your eyelashes apart when you use maximum hold.
Just a little friendly advice. HA!

I do NOT like to iron, but I do NOT like wrinkled clothes even more. So, every night I iron The Rock Star's, Silly's, and my clothes. I know she's only 5, but still! Anyway, I ask The Rock Star to get me his clothes out so that I can get them ready for the next day and this is how our conversation went.......
me: Give me what you are wearing to school.
TRS: Do these jeans match this jacket?
me: No!
TRS: Sighing-no blowing-no huffing.
me: You need black jeans.
TRS: OK-giving me the black jeans.
So, I get his jeans and t-shirt ironed.
TRS: Can you iron my jacket?
me: Are you kidding me right now?
TRS: No, look how wrinkled it is.
me: It's a jacket!
TRS: I can't wear it like that.
So, I iron his jacket.
How crazy is that? He is 14 for crying out loud. We are little OCD about our clothes. The Rock Star likes to look good, Silly likes to match-hair bows and all, I just like a lot of clothes, and Big Poppa, well he irons his own clothes because he thinks he irons better than me. Oh well, I have enough to do anyway.

Busy, Busy, Busy

Maybe Monday! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

What a relaxing 4 days! It was so nice to be home with my family. We did a lot of nothing which we don't normally get to do. We barely left the house. The weather was so nice too! I love Fall, especially seeing all the leaves changing. We did do a little house arranging. Upstairs we had the master bedroom, Silly's bedroom, and Big Poppa's office, downstairs we had The Rock Star's bedroom and den, and Silly's playroom. We moved the playroom upstairs and the office downstairs. I'm waiting for the men only sign to go on the door, unless your here to see The Rock Star that is. Silly hardly ever went down there unless she had company so now maybe she will use it more. It's amazing the difference in kids. I hardly ever see The Rock Star and Silly barely leaves my side. I suppose it's the age.
Do any of you like going to the Arts and Crafts festivals that are everywhere every weekend? If so, which one is your favorite?

What's your passion?

Big Poppa is the general manager of a restaurant. He truly cares about his employees. If they have a problem or a need they call him. Sometimes people do genuinely need a helping hand. One of his girls called him last night and was crying about some things she is going through. He was encouraging her and giving her some scriptures to read. It blessed me to here him be so passionate.
My kiddos have fall break Monday and Tuesday so I decided to take off with them. I can't wait for five o'clock to get here. I hope you all have a great weekend and I will be back next Wednesday! Woohoo!

Gas Prices

We live about an hour south of Atlanta (but still in Georgia) and today gas is $3.79 per gallon. Big Poppa was 20 minutes down the road in Alabama today and their gas prices are $3.29 per gallon. Can ANYONE explain to me how that works? That is a big difference!

Poor Silly

Poor Silly was going to do her first set of sight words today (must have young children or be a teacher to understand). They are a little different from her old school so, we studied and sent the note saying she was ready. Well, do you know what that teacher did? She didn't go in the same order as we did so the "story" was a little confusing and Silly couldn't remember her "sight" words that way. She said, with a little quiver, that she went down instead of across and now she has to try again. Poor little thing it was just too much pressure for her! How dare that teacher do her job! LOL!

This is how my lunch went today!

One of these (not necessarily this breed, but one of his relatives) just about flew in my hair. Now mind you I grew up in the 80's and my hair is still somewhat there, but by no means does it look like a birds nest. If that thing would have hit me I would have died. Do you hear me? Right on the spot! Movin' on......

Now, I work at a college where parking is NOT a good situation. When I parked my car this morning everything was fine just as it is in this illustration below. When I left to go to lunch the car next to me was so close that I had to get in on the passenger side and move over to the driver side from the inside. Hello, we do NOT have drivers ed here.

Next, I go to this place to add a line to our service for my momma so that we are a free ring away. They are out of free phones so needless to say I will have to go back another day because I am all about FREE!

This place is right next door and seeing how I am out of checks because I reorder after the fact I go in to get some counter checks. The computers are down therefore, I am still out of checks.

There is hope after all. I go across the street to the mall and pick up these comfy cuties and get one of these yummylishous icedream cones from Chic fil a.

I sure am glad it's Friday and not Monday!

Happy Friday

Is anybody glad it's Friday? Me too! It's been a stressful week with the kiddos starting their new schools. But all is well that ends well. Thank you Lord for working it all out even when I couldn't see it. I am in awe of You!
Not much going on for us tonight. I will be proctoring the SAT tomorrow and getting stuff ready for an upcoming yard sale. I seem to accumulate a lot of STUFF. Church on Sunday! I so look forward to going each week. Our Pastor brings a good Word.
So, how's your weekend shaping up? Hope it's a good one.

This was the reason for the not so happy dance yesterday. Sad isn't it? All because she wanted to sit in the front seat. Women, I tell ya, if we can't have our way then we'll just take it. Starting out kind of young huh?

Too much

So, I was asking Silly how it was going at her new school and if she liked her teachers. She said yes and yes, but that the one teacher was too much. I asked her what she meant and she said she likes me too much. She said she just keeps smiling at me all the time. What more could a momma ask for? Thank you Ms. H and Ms. L for welcoming her in.

Thanks belle for my pay it forward gift. It is so cute and even cuter that you thought of my precious Silly too. Thanks again!


Do they have to start so early?
There was also a little dance that went with this too!
