Today's TO DO:

I have A LOT of things to do today...

- Fold the laundry that has been sitting in the hamper least four days.

- Do the laundry that I have been putting off for...a week.

- Have the downstairs TOTALLY clean

- Make the BED

- Clean all of the bathrooms

- Vacuum the carpets

- Call all customers for Thursday and Friday...and print the invoices

- Start packing stuff for NY/Hawaii

- Make and eat chocolate chip pancakes (ok, I will confess, I already did this)

- Take some pictures of the house to show peeps what it
looks like

- Do my hair (this one if for you Travis)

- Put up the Christmas decorations (consisting of
a 3 ft tree, and a Christmas sign)

So, I have to do all of these things today. I will report back tonight. Wish me luck!

Bad Hair Day

Ok, so yesterday I was pretty busy all day doing things (like cleaning our office). I didnt really ever...change from my pj's and I definately did not straighten my hair. The night before I took a shower and washed my hair, but instead of blow drying it I went to sleep with it as you can guess it did not look great. So I was in the kitchen when Travis came home from working and I came out to greet him. His face was in total shock when he saw me and he was like, "Your HAIR!" i was kind of taken aback so I asked what he was talking about. "It looks like you need a bath!" was how he replied.

I had been working all day, and all I got in thanks was his shock at my hagrid appearance. He later tried to redeem himself, but his facial expession when he saw me said it all.

Welcome Committee

The day after we moved in to our house, Travis, being a Pest Control Man, sprayed our house. The next morning we saw at least 15 dead black widows. How is that for a welcome?

I had never seen a black widow until now. This would top my "Things that Scare Me" list.

TrIcK oR tReAt

Travis sported a brown mullet wig for Halloween. He said a few people commented on it. I told him he should have pretended that it was his real hair.

I got this chicken costumer for $4 last year (gotta love Halloween clearance). Audrey loves wearing, and it kept her nice and warm.

Both Audrey and Brighton were very excited to get so much candy.

I love it when they hug each other!

Carving PuPmKiNs

When we went to the pumpkin farm we all got our own pumpkins. A few days before Halloween we carved them for our family night activity.
Audrey kept throwing her pumpkin on the ground...expecting it to bounce. It didn't.I told Travis to pose for the picture...and this is what he came up with. He is too cute!
Audrey was VERY helpful when it came time to take the seeds out.

The one on the left is mine, Travis's is in the middle and Audrey's is on the right(Trav helped). Ok, so I guess you can figure out who the artist is in our family...


It has been TOO long since my last post. The reason? We finally moved into a house! Don't get too excited, we are still renting, but at least it is a house, right? I have been busy getting everything situated (and no, I am not done yet) and I had to do a lot of stuff for the business this month. Plus, I was getting so tired of my old background I couldnt even look at my blog until I changed to a new background. Anyway, I am back in the swing of things.
