A fun little list I found on Kim N.'s blog...

1. The last concert I attended was by the Glenn Miller orchestra in Tuscaloosa~ I love big band!
2. What I look forward to most on Thanksgiving: help with the children (isn’t that ghastly!), lots of my favorite meat~ turkey, and time with family.
3. My Christmas shopping is almost completed~ yes, you may hate me!
4. Thoughts of "sleep" fill my head.
5. I wish I could wear things in the same size on top and bottom, and beautiful richly dark colors without turning into the Ghost of Christmas Past.
6. Bagpipes are the worst musical invention of man~ so shrill and squeaky, not to mention they have to be played by men with hairy legs in short skirts~ yuck!
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to calling it a day, tomorrow my plans include finishing laundry, collecting leaves, maybe I’ll make an apple pie, and Sunday, I want to get all of us to church without vomit in the car or massive doses of Dimetapp!

Things You Should Be Able To Do In the Dark

Step around all toys left out (in their most recent arrangement) to lay down a sleeping child
Kiss your husband on the lips on the first try
Pass through entire house with arms partially outstretched to avoid all furniture
Pick a butter-bean (that's a lima bean to all you up north) by feel alone
Find a flashlight with a fresh battery on a stormy night
Drink a strong, hot coffee early without splashing
Use all chemical products with eyes tightly closed to avoid suffering the box’s warning of permanent blindness
Change a diaper
Be able to listen so intensely that even while asleep you are processing all the things that go bump in the night
Play hide and seek behind a tree
Become entranced by a star
Find a match to light the candle to kiss your husband by~ you missed the first time ;o)

Here's some much overdue pics of my little ones on Halloween. We've not been feeling well, so it's taken me a while to get these up... sorry.
