Look who is officially a teen!

Time really flies!! He got a computer game (Sam & Max), and of all the places he could go to he wanted Burger King. I didn't take my camera there but I should have! He ordered tomatoes on his chicken sandwich but they didn't put them on there, it had it right on the receipt but not a single trace on the I told him I could take it back but he was too hungry...he ate almost all of it..not even a quarter left and then wanted me to go tell them...uhmmmmmmm no way it is too late for that! He wasn't happy but he ate the rest of it. Then we went home for cake (Devils food with strawberry icing) topped with dragons!! He didn't get all the candles out with one blow but hopefully all his wishes will come true anyway!!
Oh I have to share his email to his Granny:
Hi Granny, I got the card with the $5. I miss you and those tuna or whatever it was sandwiches, cant remember. Thank you,

I received this really cool one from one of my Charming friends today..Chandra!! I just love it! I couldn't wait to use him so I added it to this LO that I did earlier this matches that SEI paper so well.
It is mid-night now and I need a snack...DH let me down!!?? OK so nothing major but we were supposed to have a snack 2 hours ago..but he feel asleep talking to me and two of the boys. They couldn't believe it but hey he does it all the time so no surprise to me. Now to decide what I want to eat all by myself
...maybe cold pizza!

17 years ago................

We had our first boy!!! Oh what an adventure this has been! 17 years of delight and sadly a little fright, too. Love you mutt and hope all your wishes come true!!! I am so thankful that you are in our life.
He wanted chocolate cake with caramel icing...I tried!!! I never have had much luck in the kitchen and sadly today wasn't any different. I followed the recipe to a T but it never firmed up..I even added another full cup of powdered sugar and still..a runny mess!!!???
Oh and I SUCK at Photoshop!!! I love this shot DS took but as you can see just part of FT in the backgroud so I thought I could remove that..not much luck.

This weekend we went to a Corn Maze!! This happens to be my favorite picture...corn!!!! Mutt didn't want to go but he did! Daniel wanted to do the maze but wasn't looking forward to the drive, and the younger two are always ready to go no matter where or how far. I loved spending the day with everyone at the same time!! I really thought this was something that would be hard to do but we were in and out of the maze in 27 minutes....maybe I should not have printed out that maze map after all. Buggy Dude traced the path we should travel and we didn't get lost once..I think it would have been fun to go in circles for an hour. I don't get to spend enough time with them so I would have enjoyed it. Once we were out of the maze FT had lots of fun in the corn bin while big brothers climbed on huge hay bales and shot corn cannons..those were so cool!!! If I have time tomorrow I will try to upload more pictures but most of them did not turn out that well...225 pictures and only about a dozen are worth printing.

Thursday was Pirate day at school so Wednesday night I had to come up with something quick!! We found some sweat pants I could cut into, not the best costume but they were happy! I had so much fun!!! They really had me giggling when they were checking out their eye patches. Daniel was so surprised that I was going to cut up my perfectly good shirt (just for him!) Oh yeah I would be happy to do anything for you..really I would!! But honestly look at NEEDED cut up. Mutt told him it wasn't a pirate shirt but a jailbird shirt. I love being able to do fun little things with them. Buggy dude said they are the eye brothes and made his brother squat for a how it turned out, it is the top one...he had to repair his patch at school.

Birthday Bash!

ScrapLovers is having a Birthday Bash this weekend and the blog challenge is to write about it! Well, you know I am going to scrap everyday this month so the mini tag challenge was just what I needed for today..something simple and quick because it was a busy fun day with not much time left to scrap!!??
I met two of my sisters at the craft fair...we didn't get to see it all because I had to leave early to pick the boys up from school but what we saw was amazing! So
many different art much love and happiness. One lady was telling a doll she was selling to be a good could tell she was almost sad to part with her. The buyer assured her she was going to have lots of love and fun! Cool painting, metal work, jewelry..just anything and everything! Aunt Jan bought FT the little tractor..he saw it last year and wanted it but he was just two then and it seemed a little rough around the edges for such a little guy. I got David a flute..didn't really see anything for the other two boys, so hard shopping for teens.

Oct 4

I got to see all five of my sisters today! We met to eat and watch Little Miss Sunshine. I can't believe we didn't get a group shot but here is our mom! So the movie...oh my gosh..I laughed so hard and it was just too much fun. It really isn't THAT funny but laughter is contagious!! It is so interesting what one person thinks is funny someone else thinks is lame. Oh and the food was soooooooo good. Chicken fajitas..all homemade.

Oh what fun!

I took the two younger boys to the park to visit with four of their cousin! I didn't have much time to visit with my sisters or mom with all the tracking of six wild kids but it was so much fun!! We fed the ducks, took a little walk, and had tons of fun playing!
Day two of scrapping!! I almost finished a layout that I started yesterday so hopefully tomorrow I can add the finishing touches and get it uploaded.

WoW! Oct already!!??

Time truly does fly. Sept was too stressful and it really went by in a blur. I vow that Oct must be better!! I am going to get back to my photo a day (sorry Valerie I got so far behind!) and I am also going to scrap..every single day!!!!! So for my photo of the day here is my little dude ready to go pick up his brothers from school! He has informed me those are HIS tins and they are stuffed with his toys.... Freaking toddler!! He is actually the reason the camera was down and boy was I not happy, I cleaned the lenses just yesterday and sure enough he had already smudged it...there is no place to hide it, he always finds it!!?? So here are two shots from him too. I love seeing the shots he takes!!
