"I'm to old"

Logan's reading teacher does a fun thing each Friday called Fun Friday & the kids get to buy items from the Kirksey Kash they've earned for being/doing good through out the week. So Logan came home with this face mask a couple weeks ago. I snapped this funny picture & now I am having to use it for the Halloween post because Logan informed me he is to old to go trick or treating. Stephanie hasn't been into trick or treating for a couple years now.

Changing Colors

This is a tree just down our street & every afternoon on the way home from picking Logan up from school for the last couple days I've noticed how pretty it is. It has all the fall colors, which normally I don't care much for. Maybe my tastes are changin'.

Before and After

School Conferences were tonight. A teacher asked Logan to step out in the hall so she could ask Chris some CSI questions for an upcoming segement in her class. While out in the hall Steph decided to "Steph-a-fy" Logan's locker. She did a good job I think.

:05 minute clean

I believe I started this "5 Minute Clean" when I got into the Fly Lady site, but soon got out because I just couldn't keep up, lol. She says to clean in :15 minute spans & not to drag out more than you can get put back in a :15 minute span. I do like that idea. Since :15 minutes is a lot to young kids (at the time I started this) I shortnend the time to :05 minutes. When the timer goes off we stop. They know that I mean a :05 minute clean is really :05 minutes & they don't complain (to much). Some days like today takes a little longer than :05. So we did a few of them today & the house is looking much better. And thanks Steph for doing all your spans at one time & getting the kitchen looking good!!

McDonalds Monopoly!

Chris is determined to win the big prize playing the McDonalds Monopoly game. So far he has lots of duplicate pieces & has instant won food prizes, Red Box Rental, & 20 Snapfish prints. I enter the codes online & have won a lot of My Coke Reward points, a Red Box Rental, & Snapfish prints as well. A lot of places are running out of the game pieces since it's nearing the end. Even the Huntsville McDonalds had no pieces on their medium soda cups. Where this photo was taken yesterday.

Bag Balm

It's getting close to winter & cold temps that tend to dry out your hands. Especially when you have to wash your hands as much as myself & my co-workers do. This Bag Balm is made for cow udders, but works wonders overnight on my dry, cracked hands. I am not even sure where you can buy it anymore. I have had this can (from Walmart) since Steph was a baby.

Steph got tagged!!

Steph came home after school & told us the truck got tagged & she doesn't know who did it. I guess all the cold temps made someone think about Christmas. I bet in a few days (if that) they will claim their "art"!
UPDATE~A friend of a friend told her she drew the Christmas tree on her truck. She looked at the other 2 friends & they admitted their "handy" work.

Green tomatoes

With the forecast of cold tempatures tonight & the rest of the week I decided to pick all my tomatoes plus one small cantaloupe. A co-worker said to wrap the tomatoes in newspaper, place in box, then store in cool/dry area (like under a bed) & th would ripen nicely.

Knock off GS Cookies??

Shopping in Aldis's this afternoon I spotted a box of cookies that looked like Samoa Girl Scout cookies. Then I found a box that looks like Thin Mints & the Tag a Longs. I will let you know how they taste.

Homecoming Parade

This afternoon was the RHS homecoming parade. We met up with a friend & visited before it started & during. Both of our older girls were in the parade. Hers is in band & Steph was helping out with a friend of hers & throwing candy. Logan & Allison had a good visit waiting for the parade to start also.

Broken glasses

Logan got in the car this afternoon & told me his glasses broke. They can't be repaired, but his vision is only corrected in one eye & it's not real bad. Since it's almost time for his annual eye exam we are going to just wait it out.
