Blogger Mood

I am a woman and because of that I have the right to change my mood at a moments notice. Sometimes I can control it and sometimes I can't. Contain yourselves with that shocking bit of news. So lately I haven't been in a blogging mood. Maybe it's because I am not feeling witty or because we haven't done anything very fun or maybe b/c I believe that ALL blogs should have pictures and well, my camera sucks and it hasn't been out of my purse in quite sometime.

It would be funny to show you a picture of my cracked phone that went flying through the air when I was ripping my hand out of my pocket to wave to a neighbor (that's just how neighborly I am). It might also be funny to show you a picture of my phone floating in the bathtub(yes, they float) because it fell out of my pocket while I was giving Linley a bath, but no, I didn't take pictures of those. I did laugh at them and then nearly cry when I thought of the "I told you so's" that I was going to get.

So instead of something witty and funny we will think about our favorite side dishes at Thanksgiving: mine is crockpot dressing and Darrell's is a spicy cajun corn maque choux. Care to share?

I'll leave you with this and the hope that I will indeed photograph some major Family Funny this week.

Fear of the Unknown

Darrell and I hauled the kids to Memphis this weekend to celebrate Grandaddy's Birthday!
About 30 minutes from our exit it dawned on me: 'I forgot Linley's boopies (aka pacifier).'
We have had good intentions on taking aways those horrible things, but we have been to chicken to do it. Ever since Linley's first birthday we have wanted to give them the heave ho, but both of us were afraid of the weeks of nighttime crying and getting out of bed again so we have conveniently put off that horrible task.

So I had a decision to make: go buy one or just deal with it while I had grandparent backup. So we dealt with it and it was a piece of cake. What were we so afraid of again? Why did we not remember that our daughter loves sleep more than anything besides food? Really, she cried for about 1 minute and it was pretty much over.

We proceeded to have fun the rest of the weekend. Here was the super fun Memphis Botanical Gardens:

Jackson and I built this fort and chair. He thought the chair looked like a toilet and hence there is a funny face on him:)

The spider web:

An attempt to get a cute picture for all of the free photo card, ornament and photo calendar deals here, here and here. That obviously didn't turn out like I had hoped.

But aren't they just adorable anyway?

1st Hair Cut

For most of you, just stop reading. This post is not funny or witty or really even informational.
Now for the grands and great grands: I cut Linley's hair! Really it was just a trim in the back and she begged for it so I gave in.

She looks adorable and now the back is the same length as the front. I did not save a curl from her first haircut-that is until Darrell told me that I must: so I dug through the trash and pulled one out.

Here is documentation (and why are all of my words underlined?)

Post haircut: She was only sad because she wanted to cut some too.

What to Post

So I can't decide what to post about.

I could post about this adorable chicken:

Or this scary vampire with Black hair:

Or how adorable Jackson is with his best Kindergarten buddy:

But really what I was most excited about on Halloween was getting all of these groceries for

I know that I am crazy, but I really was excited.
