Favorite Pen

I have had lots of favorite pens in my life. Currently my favorite is my dollar store pen. It is just the right size so that I don't get hand cramp when I right with it. It is blue ink and has a yellow highlighter on top. It twists open so there is no cap to mess with (except for over the highlighter). I love my dollar store pen!

Savannah's 10 month pictures...very, very, late

So here are the 10 month pics. They are very late. I did take them on time, I just haven't gotten them posted. In just a couple of days I will be taking the 11 month pics so I thought it was about time to put them on here. I guess I wasn't in too much of a hurry because they really aren't very good pictures. Cole was in no mood to have his picture taken and Savannah wouldn't sit still for 2 seconds. Anyway, here they are...Savannah, Cole, and "the chair"...



Behind in my blogging...a month in review...

I realized that it has been a while since I posted much of anything. Over the last few weeks we have spent A Day Out with Thomas, Nana & Pawpaw came for a short visit, Savannah learned how to do the touchdown sign, we went to a retreat with our youth group, Savannah learned to climb - EVERYTHING, and we spent a morning at the zoo where Savannah really got to see the animals for the first time. Cole and Savannah are really starting to play and have fun together too! It is so much fun to watch them laugh and play. Below are some pictures from our recent adventures (with a few just for fun ones thrown in)...

Favorite Laundry Detergent

I love All liquid laundry detergent - the original scent formerly known as Surf. It just smells so fresh and clean. I love putting clothes in the dryer after they have been washed in it. I have been washing all of our clothes in All Free & Clear ever since Cole was born and have reserved yummy smelling detergent for just our sheets and towels because when I was little I was very sensitive to laundry detergent and my mom had to wash all my stuff in Purex so I am trying to avoid yucky skin stuff with my children. Anyway, I decided that today was the day to at least wash mine and Matt's clothes in yummy smelling laundry detergent again. Call me crazy, but it smells GOOD!!!!

Also, All has there 3x concentrated version of detergent that is bottled in smaller plastic bottles with the same great smelling cleaning punch! Check out their website for how it helps the environment!

Favorite Elementary School Teacher

I went to 5 different Elementary Schools in 3 different states in 6 years. I don't even remember most of my teachers' names. But for the first half of 3rd grade my teacher was Mrs. Guy. I don't remember a whole lot about her, but she is the one who taught me that peanut butter is really good on apples! She was also very kind. I remember that she was probably in her 50s when she taught my class and she was taking piano lessons. I thought that was really neat. She even participated in a recital. I don't remember much about my school lessons from her, but I do remember the simple way she taught life lessons.

What crayon are you?

Your world is colored with bright, vivid, wild colors.
You have a deep, complex personality - and you are always expressing something about yourself.
Bold and dominant, you are a natural leader. You have an energy that is intense... and sometimes overwhelming.
Your reaction to everything tends to be strong. You are the master of love-hate relationships.

Your color wheel opposite is green. Green people are way too mellow to understand what drives your energy.

What crayon are you?


I am cracking up that Mindy & I are color wheel opposites!!!! :)

Favorite Cartoon I Watched as a Kid...







My favorite cartoon I watched as a kid was the Smurfs. I loved the little blue guys and all the mischief they got into. I wish cartoons were still like that!



Alvin & the Chipmunks come in a close second!
