99th Post

Only one more post and that makes a hundred. I never thought I'd have that much to say. I'm not particularly wordy. It's been fun. People do 'special' things for their 100th post. I ain't got nuttin'. Give me some ideas please.

I had a fun, busy weekend-can't wait til Monday to rest.

Friday was shopping. Julia came in. She can make me laugh in a second. My guts hurt she makes me laugh so much. Put her and her mother together, I'm through.There were just too many queens in the room. Sorry ladies: my pic, my blog, I get to be the pretty one.
Saturday was a school fundraiser. The kids do a show and then parents/grandparents are robbed blind via auctions, raffles, and games.

The biggest hit is Asian Ping Pong. Kids chuck ping pong balls in little bowls and win fish. We wind up with lots of fish that are usually dead by morning. This year my kids managed to get 10 fish (they were a steal at about 5 bucks each!). So far, so good-they are all still alive. We spent the day cleaning out the big fish tank-hopefully some will survive another night and make it to the big tank tomorrow.

For all the cash these fish cost we should at least be able to eat them.

Ya Just Gotta Love a Man in a Jumpsuit...

Especially Bond...James Bond. Click on the link below to enjoy a bell-bottomed jumpsuit clad man (or 3) in platform heels. The hilarity begins around :53

I know it's easy to crack me up, but isn't that one of the reasons you all love me so much?

And look what station I found on my radio this morning:

BTW, Does anyone know where I can pick one of these outfits up? DH would love one for Christmas. Bwah ha ha ha!

Thanksgiving Weekend

I'm a little behind-a little in denial that Christmas is coming so quickly. The draft of this post has been waiting to be completed for over a week now. I'm hoping that once I finish this Thanksgiving post I'll be ready to move on. We'll see.
The girl made deviled eggs-she loves deviled eggs:
And then she turned them pink:
I love pink. Most things are much more fabulous when they're pink. I think deviled eggs are an exception to the 'things-are-much-more-fabulous-when-they're-pink' rule. They did taste good.
We made a cake. This was not an aesthetically pleasing Thanksgiving.

This litte guy is pretty cute though:

Here's everybody-ready to eat:

The Saturday after Thanksgiving DH took the kids squirrel hunting while I was doing a little hunting of my own. They had fun. There was a little queasiness with kid #2 when it came to cleaning the squirrels, but #1 and #3 had no problems with that part. I had never eaten squirrel and dumplings-I was willing to try it. I made the dumplings even. I kinda thought it would be like chicken and dumplings-just hunks of meat, but no. Squirrels really aren't that meaty. I'm fine with not eating squirrel ever again.
Sunday we had a firing range in the yard. They are all getting to be pretty good shots. The boys have been saving soda bottles full of water to use as targets-they had a lot:

Firing range:

No, they aren't doing this alone. DH is teaching every second they are out there!

The girl even had to dress for the event-she borrowed camo from her brother:
