Funny Random Pics

This is a picture of Devin or Michael Motorcycle (his preferred name). He is sporting some Army issued reading glasses that my husband has had for years. Every once in a while we find them, and everyone has fun wearing them. This picture cracks me up!

Noah decided to grow his hair out for locks of love. Will he really let it grow that long? Time will tell. In the meantime, he had fun with the hair glue I found at the Walmart clearance aisle.

Random Thoughts by Denise

1. Today is November 25th. It just hit me what happens next month. Yikes!

2. My frontal sinus is killing me. It is chock full o' snot!

3. It's going to be a looooong hunting season here at our home.

4. I am tired of doing diarrhea-soked laundry.

5. Did my mom know my kids were going to get diarrhea, and that's why she left a big jar of applesauce in my fridg?

6. This is is the first year (that I can remember) that I have the day after Thanksgiving off work. I am so excited.

7. I really, really want to go see the movie Fireproof, but don't know when I will get to :(

And that's all folks!

Where did my blogging mojo go?

My friend Susan left me a comment to get blogging! Like most things in my life, it's all or nothing. Some days I get everything I want to get done, and others are complete wastes. One of the blogs I love to read is Cindy. She is a funny gal, and every year she has a Choctoberfest. I think next October I will just show up at her house. I copied this from her for some bloggy inspiration.

The Office and Grey's Anatomy from last week, so I'm all ready for tonight!

The boys' drawers and closets out. Lots of Rubbermaid totes with little boy clothes I will never need again.

If I will get deferred from jury duty?!?

A package containing the twin's Christmas gifts from Meme. She is on the ball!

*Met up with...
All the fun MOPS moms yesterday.

A Thanksgiving card from our financial planner. Too funny!

When I found the VeggieTales sweatshirt my 7 year wore when he was 2.

*Reunited with...
lots of old high school friends on Facebook! Facebook is like crack (or so I've heard!)

Peppermint ice cream that I bought last night. It was sooo good!

For the fact that my husband & I have great jobs.

A Cedar Cove Christmas by Debbi Macomber. I've never read her books before, and just found it randomly on the library shelf.

some great deals at the Dollar Tree to decorate for our MOPS Christmas brunch.

Last Friday night the boys and I partied at our friend's house while the guys were hunting.

To start our crock pot dinner this morning.

*Laughed out loud...
at my husband's text message.

I didn't have to do 3 more loads of laundry today.

Whatchu been up to?

To Wii or Not to Wii

Last night my friend Becky and I took a trip to Costco to shop and browse. I think we spent more time in the toy aisles than anything else. At the front entrance they had their Wii display. I've been contemplating getting one for the boys for Christmas. So I started adding up the price of the console, an extra hand controller, numb-chucks, age appropriate games, and the list goes on... The minimum amount I would spend would be around $300. So we kept talking and thinking about it the whole trip.

Later at Starbucks (because all shopping trips must include Starbucks!) Becky brought up our Mexico mission trip we went on in March (just 7 months ago). She said it was crazy that we were sitting around thinking how we were going to spend $300 at Christmas when others so close to us have so little. And yes it is crazy! I am almost certain the little boy Noah befriended could care less about a Wii. I pray the Lord will help me remember this more often!
