While out running errands this weekend the kids were in the back seat eating chips and they said look at us mom, and I turned around and they were being cute for me and I just so happened to have my camera with me and I told them to hold that pose and took a picture and Cameron was so not alseep he was messing with me! the picture was a little shaky for we were in daddy's loud and bumpy diesel truck!! Anyway, had a good weekend didn't do anything exciting, just preparing to move at the end of Oct. Right now I am waiting for the roofer to come out and look at our roof, we need some work done before we close so he will let us know what exactly needs to be done! oh yay! house stuff pretty much dominates our lives these days! well, I better get my realtor just shot me an email and I need to see what's up! later taters!!

I have been trying to get this post finished for 2 days but blogger was acting up, so... here it is!
First of all, Happy Fall! it's my favorite time of year, that is when it finally starts to feel like it outside, but is it "officially" fall. Yesterday morning as we were getting in the car to go to school I told the kids it was fall and Hannah said "oh yeah, I wish I could play in the leaves when I get home" I'm like good luck with that!! haha!! Okay, about these pictures... my dad and niece came to visit us this past weekend and Hannah and Madeline and a friend down the street decided to take pictures with my camera, so this is what I found... "we're goofy"
Madeline & Alexis
Hannah loves the look of her hair in this one & Mad is going for a serious look ( I guess??)
And last this is what Hannah has learned in the past week, she is a braider now
and so very proud of it, this is Betty Spaghetti here and with no limbs, poor Betty!

Hi out there! not much going on around here to report, had a good weekend, went and looked at a few houses, we have 1 that we really like, we close on our house Oct 30 at the lastest, the buyers are getting a VA loan so they take a little longer, but that's fine, we have time to get our ducks in a row. We are getting really excited about the changes ahead for us and are a bit nervous, today I have been doing laundry and tidying up the house from the weekend because we didn't do much housework at all! tonight the Cowboys are playing so Jim is really looking forward to that and I enjoy watching it with him :) so... that's about it for today, kinda boring huh? maybe tomorrow's post will be more exciting.

I just had to show off my new fall purse! I got it at Coldwater Creek and I am so excited about it, I love the colors makes me want fall even worse now, I am sooooo done with summer at this point, my hubby and I both are, we want some cooler weather. We have had 7 showing in the last few days and we are hoping, fingers crossed, for an offer! it does get old having to get the house in tip top shape and I mean tip top... we clear the kitchen counters, bathroom counters, that's what you have to do to make a good impression so that other people can see their stuff in your house. I have book club tonight so I am looking forward to that, I have been doing some laundry today and I took a little "siesta" I couldn't go to sleep last night so I got back up and read until after midnight, so I was a little sleepy this afternoon! what a bum huh :) well I better get another load out and I am making some homemade vegetable soup for dinner, I want to get it started early so that it will ready before bookclub and we can go ahead and eat, have a good one!

100th POSTS!!!!

Woweee wow wow!!! I just realized it when I started this one! I went and had lunch with Hannah today and never left until school was over, I asked the teacher if she needed any help and she said sure, so I pulled kids out and read with them, played a syllable counting game and it was so much fun, I shoulda been a teacher. Hannah was loving me being there, she would come over and love on me every few minutes, and so when we came home I checked messages and we have 2 showings this evening, so fingers crossed that 1 of them will think this is the home for them!!! so now, what the heck are we gonna do from 7-8:30?????? on a school night??? hmmm... well I threw some cookies in the oven for a snack and now I need to start picking up around here!! oh, about the cookie deal I found this idea on another blog, what I did was make up some choc. chip cookies and oatmeal raisin (my fav) and you put them(the dough) on a baking pan on wax paper or parchment and freeze them for about 3 hours, then you put them in a large ziplock bag labeled, and throw it back in the freezer and there you have cookies for whenever you want some you just take out however many you want and bake!!

What a great weekend...

we had such a good 3 day weekend, let's see... we went and looked at furniture on Sat. we are going to need some new furniture when we move so we have been browsing for ideas on what we want when we're ready, took the kids to see Space Chimps on Sat. night and it was not a good movie, the kids didn't even like it, the reviews were bad but we wanted to check it out anyway and let me tell ya, we won't even rent that one it was that bad! On Sun. we went to Ikea, we have never been and since we were already going to my sis/law house we left early to go there and plus our house was being shown so we decided to check it out and it was really a neat place but waaaay crowded, the older I get the more I dislike crowds, next time we go to get things for the new house we will either go when it first opens or at night. Then we went to Terry's and swam, cooked out, ate lots of yummy food, the kids love going there, they have about 3 pinball machines in their gameroom and there is house is really big so the kids have alot of fun, I didn't take any pictures so I have nothing to show of our last summer hurrah... and I am ready for summer to end, enough of this heat for crying out loud!! I am ready for fall, cool crisp mornings, pumpkins, anything fall it's my favorite time of year.

Last night as I was going to sleep I was thinking about what a good weekend we had and how I was going to miss my little family when they all go their seperate ways in the morning, well, it seems the kids woke up on the wrong side of the bed this a.m. Cameron griped about what I packed in his lunch, was mad because he wanted cereal but we were out of milk so I had fixed him waffles, Hannah didn't want to wear anything I picked out, and while brushing her hair she was whining because it wouldn't do right, you see, Hannah has alot of thick hair for such a young thing and it can be a real chore, so all that made them have an attitude with me and I am biting my tongue trying to stay patient and I did and we got out the door on time and everyone was pleasant on the way to school, whew!!!! so I am doing laundry, and need to run to Wal-mart for a few things and that's my day! enjoy yours!
