He's only 9...

Taylor's friend Paige called to ask if he wanted to go to Gardner Village with her and her family to go on a witches hayride. Taylor says "yes". Excited as can be, (even realizing that he will have to miss wrestling practice which usually nothing gets in the way of) he runs upstairs to change his shirt and re-do his hair for the day. As he takes off his shirt he says "phew, I stink... I been smelling this smell and now I know it's me, do you want to smell?" I of course don't want to smell something that stinks, that is just gross. Being the best mom in the world, and not wanting my son to stink, I go get Jeff's deodorant and put it on him Problem solved.
I send Taylor on his way and call Jeff to tell him how funny it was that Taylor had B.O. Jeff of course just laughs, and tells me that boys don't get stinky until their like twelve, and that Taylor probably just has a crush on her and wants to look and smell his best. WHHAAATT?! LALALALALAL! I don't want to hear that about my son, he's only nine, he's supposed to like star wars and pokemon, NOT GIRLS!
Man how naive am I? I just helped him get all handsome for his big date, and don't even realize what I'm doing. AAAAHHHH! I am not ready for this, and I can guarantee that when he gets home I am going to be quizzing him about his whole night, what they talked about, where his hands were, where his lips were, the whole nine I may have to really get on him because he is past his curfew...which is unexceptable.

I just smelled the shirt he took off, and it does NOT stink... I guess Jeff may know what he's talking about (but only on this one subject).

Halloween party!

Saturday we went to Maurina's house for a Halloween party. The kids had fun doing an obstacle course, a pinata, and decorating candy corn foamies. We all had fun eating and visiting. Thanks for a fun day, I can't wait until next year.

Killing two birds with one stone...

Laura Lee tagged me with a tag called "sixth". Basically you have to take your sixth picture from your sixth file and post it. Lucky for me, and lucky for you it wasn't my boudoir pictures I had taken for Valetines for Jeff. Just kidding I burnt those... just kidding there never were any and that's what I'm sticking to. Any ways, back on track this is my sixth picture...

This is a picture of some "Thank You" cards I made for the boys school auction last year, Which leads me right into my next topic.

As most of you already know Jeff's in the real estate business, and with the market being so crazy work has been very little. Things were tight for a little while, tight like squeezing my size 10 butt into a size 2 jeans, you get the picture? During this hard time so many people have stepped up to help us, and I am so thankful for all of you, so I want to give a big THANKS to all of you.

My first Thank You goes to Jeff. Thanks for all you do. You are the best husband a girl could ask for, and I am so thankful for all you do for me and the boys. We love you!

Next I wanted to thank all my family and friends who have helped me out the last little bit. I especially want to thank my parents for their constant love and support and Jamie for always taking the back seat for her "baby" sister. Trisha and Josh, you guys are awesome and I appreciate all of your help. It's so good knowing that you can always count on family.
To all of my friends, thanks for listening and talking to me you guys are very supportive and non-judgemental, I couldn't ask for better friends.

Pinewood Derby

This past week our scouts had their "pinewood derby". It's always fun to see all the different cars the boys build. This year Taylor decided to do his car black and red with a "black widow" look. His car turned out really good and I am so proud of his patience to take the time and make it right. It looked really good when it was finished.

They all had a good time racing their cars and I didn't realize that they go so fast. At the end they gave us a printout of the speeds and places and Taylor's cars average speed was 225mph, now that's fast.

Taylor's car won 2nd in over-all and 1st in his den. Way to go T!
