5 more down

Today Avery had 5 more teeth pulled! As you may know this makes 9 total in a few short period. She is one strong cookie, and so is Ms Missy for keeping Dalton entertained while all the action was taking place. She is one of the people that she will actually talk too! I could hear her down the hall talking to her! LOL I think Dalton even made plans for Ms Missy's girls to bring their build a bears the next time we get together to eat!!! Hey, Missy! Don't forget the onion!

The goodies that I make

I have been asked do I have a store? Nope! I make things, and distribute them around town basically. I mail them also. Word of mouth just spreads, and that has been the best type of advertising! So, if there is something that you are interested in that you see some where or on my blog the ask away! Thanks for your interest!

Thought for the day....

Who needs enemies when you have family?

Question after pictures this weekend...

Dalton kept asking me over and over after our photographer got out of the car... Mama WHY is that lady that took our pictures so addicted-td (yes, this is how she was saying it!) to cokes? Hey, Ro! When a 5 year old can see your habit, maybe that is the sign to put the bottle down... or should I say put the can down! LOL

I have to add that Rosjuane and I discussed coke and diet cokes in front of the kids and that is why Dalton was talking about this. She would not say a word to Ro while she was there, but would not shut up about her after she left! Rosjuane was really good with the kids and Lee. That says a lot! You have to know how to work Dalton. I had given Rosjuane the low down on her before hand, and she did great with her!

Avery checks out grandma's hair...

Tonight while driving down the road Avery says to me... I notice how all grandmas have short hair with like a perm in it and they wear it all curly.. I was like yeahhhhh..... She goes... When YOU become a grandma (my head nearly spun completely around when said that!!!) was I going to have all my hair cut off and would I get a perm!?!?!? I was like WHAT?!! She goes... I like you with your longer hair. I was just wondering.....

Makes you really look at how kids see things out of their little eyes!

It is SO quiet around here!

Lee went to Papaw Robert's house yesterday, and took Dalton with him! It will be 3 days and 2 night before we can be there Friday after school. This is the first time that I have ever been away from Dalton! Yes, that is right. She has NEVER spent the night away from me. I actually slept all night long except for the 2 times that Avery sat straight up in the bed.. I was like WHAT are you doing? Her response!??!! She did not know!

Yesterday Avery admitted that she gets really tired of Dalton talking (yes, Kami she talks and I mean ALOT!) and she tells her to be quiet.. but she told me today that she missed her talking to her.

Today on the phone Dalton told me that she went to eat with daddy and papaw Robert and that she got 2 packs of gum. One for her and one for Avery. I love how my kids always think about each other. Dalton told Avery on the phone how she has her a pack of gum and is saving it just for her! That made Avery smile.

9-4= 5 more to go & SHE'S ALIVE!

About a month ago the orthodontist told me that Avery had to have 9 teeth removed.... Today we started the procedure. 4 were removed. 1 without any med's. She did not even move when he pulled it! It was on the bottom so at least she did not have to have her tongue be numb on top of everything else. She was SO funny! She REALLY liked that laughing gas. I have never let them give that to her before, but knowing the show that she puts on when we pull a tooth out of her head that is about to fall out anyway.. I knew for every ones safety that it would be best. Plus, I did not want everyone up there to talk about us when we were gone! LOL She was a total trooper, and says that it is FUN! She LOVES the way that gas smells and can't wait to go back... WHAT!?!? OKkkkk.... ****Mental note to watch out for my kid sniffing gas, lead based paint, and other illegal brain cell killing fumes.*** She really likes her dentist... ALOT! I think my kids are the only kids that I know that get excited to go and get their teeth cleaned. They think that Ms. Stephanie is the bomb! She even lets Dalton helps with cleaning mine and Avery's teeth... trust me when I say.. POOR US! It ought to be against the law for a dental hygienist to be so dang sweet! Any whooo.... Carrie was there with Avery the entire time and she was great too! So, next Tues or Wed she will have 5 on the other side removed.

9 points make a 10 year old HAPPY!

Here ya go RO! Here is one happy 10 year old! She wanted to have it mounted, but I talked her out of it! I asked her if the gun that she used kicked.. she goes.. I don't remember! I knew it did cause I watched Lee site it in! And boy did it kick!!!! Funny how that blood gets to flowing. and you are clueless to a kicking gun!

Wal-Mart pajamas

I was wondering if anyone could tell me WHY Wal-Mart has flannel footed pj's to fit my 10.5 year old.. They are a size 12! Do people really buy these and make their kids this age wear them!? Avery would be mortified!

You may want to sit down for this one...

I had officially decided this week before we even left to go to Papaw Robert's that I was NOT going to be bored at his house and CLEAN while they were all out hunting. I decided that I would go too! I got my license, and I hit the woods with Dalton. She was beyond excited to go with me! We took some markers, and she drew on toilet paper while we were in the deer stand all bundled up... She has been tracing the designs on toilet paper in the last few days for some reason, so it worked out when I grabbed me some JUST IN CASE I needed it! LOL Oh, GOOD JOB Lee on that picture... what part of put the red box on us to focus do you not understand!?!?! LOL Oh, well.... At least he offered. Normally I am NEVER in the pictures. Especially since I am not a self portrait taker.. I think that looks SO stupid!

So, sorry for graphic nature of the dead deer.. this is how I found it when I ran inside to get the camera... I mean like I was gone 2 minutes and this is what Lee had done to it. YUCK I walk in and have to get close to it... Of course.. I GAG! OMG how can something smell so freaking bad! I was like.... OMG take the picture and I mean FAST! LOL Not too shabby for my first deer all alone... It was a 7 point. And FYI it dropped right when I shot it! Dalton looked at me all serious and goes... I CAN NOT BELIEVE YOU JUST KILLED THAT DEER!!! Needless to say I now have the fever. Oh, and YES Maury... I DO have make up on. It was in the afternoon so of course I did, but I would most likely have it on in the am too or you would only see a pic of the deer!
Lee also got an 8 point and our sweet deer slayer Avery got a 9 point!!!!
I asked Lee when I was getting out of the truck.. what else do I need besides my gun, my orange vest and hat, a pen, my license and my lipstick?!?!? Needless to say he just shook he head! Now everyone that knows me I HAVE to HAVE my lipstick. Now who would want their lips to get all dry and uncolorly(is that a word!??!!) while hunting!!?!? Right?

This dang hat....

Lee bought ANOTHER hat the other day and guess who has taken it over.. I mean really! She was ticked off yesterday when he had the nerve to wear it to work....
But, she did not want her picture taken with it on at first....

She does this shy mouth half open something another.. not sure what she calls herself doing..

Then she decides... Nope, not going to do it.....

Then my ole girl comes out of her shell!!!!

I am here to tell you that she got in the car today and that was the first thing out of her mouth....

Did daddy wear that hat to work? Cause he told me that I could have it!?!?

She wanted to wear it to Wee school today... But, I had to put my foot down!

Went to Dalton's fall festival.
Had visitor after lunch... so cute!
Ran short on time to work upstairs because of visitor.
Got Avery from school.
Took Avery to gymnastics.
Came home and worked upstairs.
Got Avery from gymnastics.
**The best part of my day.... Took Avery to grocery store so she could spend HER well earned money on canned food for the needy. I spent a certain amount, and then she was all pumped up and bought too! She has 48 cans to donate to the needy for the holidays coming up. I am so pleased about how she thinks of others before herself. I hope that she continues to care about others and their feelings and needs as she grows older.
Went gambling... yes, tonight was pokeno night, and I was the big loser and got my money back! Hey, that is better than losing and getting notta back!
Catching up one some computer work and monogramming...

I am so ready for some sleep!

The weekend.

I survived the open house... Whew! It is something getting as many items as you can ready for show, and your house too! I was worn OUT! I was pleased with the steady flow of people, and the new friends that a few brought along! For those of you that are checking colors.. just remember that due to the date I DO have a cut off date for orders. I have things to get ready too and 4... no make that 5 trees to get up too!

I worked until mid-night that night getting some things finished because I knew we were going to Papaw Robert's house for the night so I would not be able to get anything done for a couple of days. Sorry.. no pictures from Papaw's this time cause we were 15 minutes away when I realized that I forgot my camera! I seriously need ADD medication when I am there. I am TYRING to get his house in order... DON'T EVEN ASK.... and in the middle of my work he has started adding another bathroom. So, everything out of the room is now in the room that I was working on. He just laughed when I walked in and saw it! YIKES! Not to mention that it had gotten cold and then hot again outside and the ladybugs were EVERYWHERE in that room too! If you have never seen the invasion of the ladybugs then you are missing out. Seriously... he had to set off a bomb to tone them down. I got the vac out and sucked up I would say... oh 5,000 out of the front window... And NO I am not kidding. We had turned on the ceiling fan last weekend and it was like you had cooties.... You could feel them in your hair, and on you every where! And poor Dalton would walk in the room and they would attack her because it was like there was even more at her level. And then there is OUTSIDE.. you go outside and it is freaky too.. I took pics last year, but I will have to find those.

Open House

Thursday from 11-7 I will be having a little open house to showcase a few things that I have available for gifts for the holidays. I never do this, but after a few people dropped by to pick things up and told me that the picture did not do particular items justice... they thought it would be a good idea!!
