Happy Halloween

Chris and his friend, Lexon dressed up as 80's rockers. I think Chris looked totally like Slash. They had the tightest pleather pants on. It was so funny!

Joseph went as a football player again. He said that he can't think of anything he'd rather be.

Of course, we had Hannah. She was way happy waving to me at her school parade!

Emily on Politics

Emily came home from school with some alarming information about one of our presidential canidates. She told me that Barack Obama has been stealing food from the Mexicans. I asked her how he was doing this and she told me that he is sending people from the FBI to Mexico and they are stealing watermelons. As she told the story she sounded appauled. I asked her who told her this and she said that it was a boy in her class. She then saw Christopher and ran up to him and said, "Obama is stealing food from your people!" She went on to tell us how he hates Mexicans and will keep stealing food if we vote for him. Wow!!! This sheds a whole new light on my political views. I'm glad I have such an informative daughter to keep me up to date on current events!

Off To Trucking School

My mom's boyfriend, Reggie is leaving for a few weeks to go to a trucking school. I made him this cake. I think my new hobby is making cakes with popsicle sticks and laminated clip art. It's kinda fun and it turns out pretty good. The truck is a Hot Wheels and the signs are all homemade from my new signature collection.

Primary Class Costume Party

Tonight I had my semi-annual primary class party. This one was a costume party. Emily was Hannah Montana and Samantha was a countess of darkness.

This is Emily and my mom's boyfriend Reggie.
Chris was my helper.

Emily & Chris trying to bob for apples.

Joseph was a football player which worked out well since he just got home from practice. He joined in on the bobbing for apples.

We did several other games as well. Pin the nose on the pumpkin, murder (a fun little winking game), kick the can, musical chairs and of course kill Elmo pinata. It was so much fun and I think all the kids had a good time.

Super Cool Chris

This is Chris in his room with his band mates rockin' out!

Happy 9th Birthday Emily

Today was my baby's birthday! We had lots of fun. We started the day by going swimming at the rec center. Then we went out to lunch and to see the movie "Beverly Hills Chihuahua". We then came home and had a pizza party. The top picture is one of Emily with her arm around one of her "imaginary" friends. She really believes in them. Yesterday, she told me that she was so bored and that all of her imaginary friends were at a meeting. They are apparently holding an election in "Imaginary Land". She says that they will be at the meeting until they vote on a new president. I know it sounds strange, but she honestly believes and if you say otherwise she gets very defensive. I called Samantha her "real" friend and she got mad and said that ALL her friends were "real" even the imaginary ones. I hope she grows out of them before puberty, but it's likely she won't. Oh well, at least she has a gigantic imagination! She wanted a "pink poodle in paris" cake. I was at a loss for decorations so I came up with this. She liked it, so that was what mattered.

She is having a sleep over with her best friend, Samantha. I got them matching jammies.

Dennis did a magic trick for Emily. He made her wave her wand over the hidden stuffed animal.

When he pulled off the towel and it was gone she was seriously surprised and amazed. It was so cute!

She just loved her cupcake maker from Christopher.

Christine & Stephanie made her this awesome card and got her a stuffed cow she can make herself.

Joseph got Emily this shirt. It is so true.

Special Surprise

My husband came home today with these beautiful flowers and a little note that said, "You Rock!" What an awesome surprise. My husband training is starting to pay off. You can teach an old dog a new trick. Just because flowers are the best flowers a girl can get. It made my heart smile. Thank you, Dennis. You rock too!
