Mom...can they please come over...

Nicholas is on the high school swim team and this weekend was the girls first meet as they start 2 weeks ahead of the boys. The boys team went to "cheer" them on and then to dinner and then I get the text "if someone can spend the night" ..My first responce was NO as Tyler had someone the night before and I sooo wanted a sleep in morning which NEVER happens. I ended up going to up to Greenwood with Denise so when I came back I found there were 4 other boys spending the night..So at 11 oclock at night I made a breakfast casserole and got out 2 butter braids. One of the boys had to leave at 845 AM so when I went down to wake him up this is how they were sleeping. I had to laugh (and get my camera). They are a GREAT group of boys and we are soo looking forward to Tuesday as it is the FIRST high school swim meet for them. Go Frogs!!!

Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road

Since nothing is going on here and I got this today and thought it was FUNNY, I thought I would post this:)

BARACK OBAMA: The chicken crossed the road because it was time for a change!
The chicken wanted change!
JOHN MC CAIN: My friends, that chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.
SARAH PALIN: Because, praise Jesus, I was gonna shoot his sorry liberal ass for blocking my view of Russia !
HILLARY CLINTON: When I was First Lady, I personally helped that little chicken to cross the road. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to ensure right from Day One that every chicken in this country gets the chance it deserves to cross the road. But then, this really isn't about me.
GEORGE W. BUSH: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here. DICK CHENEY: Where's my gun?
COLIN POWELL: Now to the left of the screen, you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road.
BILL CLINTON: I did not cross the road with that chicken. What is your definition of crossing?
AL GORE: I invented the chicken.
JOHN KERRY: Although I voted to let20the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken's intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.
AL SHARPTON: Why are all the chickens white? We need some black chickens.
DR. PHIL: The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes after the problem on the other side of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he's acting by not taking on his current problems before adding new problems.
OPRAH: Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross this road so bad. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I'm going to give this chicken a car so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.
ANDERSON COOPER, CNN: We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.
NANCY GRACE: That chicken crossed the road because he's guilty! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks.
PAT BUCHANAN: To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.
MARTHA STEWART: No one called me to warn me which way that chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmers Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information.
DR SEUSS: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I've not been told.
ERNEST HEMINGWAY: To die in the rain, alone.
: Because the chicken was gay! Can't you people see the plain truth? That's why they call it the other side. Yes, my friends, that chicken is gay. And if you eat that chicken, you will become gay, too. I say we boycott all chickens until we sort out this abomination that the liberal media whitewashes with seemingly harmless phrases like the other side. That chicken should not be crossing the road. It's as plain and as simple as that.
GRANDPA: In my day we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough.
BARBARA WALTERS: Isn't that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heart warming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its lifelong dream of crossing the road.
ARISTOTLE: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.
JOHN LENNON: Imagine all the chickens in the world crossing roads together, in peace.
BILL GATES: I have just released eChicken2008, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your checkbook. Internet Explorer is an integral part of eChicken2008. This new platform is much more stable and will never crash.
ALBERT EINSTEIN: Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?
COLONEL SANDERS: Did I miss one?

High School Swim Halloween Party

Nicholas went to the High School Swim Team Halloween party last weekend and here is a picture I "borrowed" from someone elses blog:)
He is the Banana. FUNNY thing is he wanted to be a Hooters Girl so I bought a Hooters uniform on line and the shorts were a little obscene on a boy so he THEN decided he would go with the boys team Theme of super heros and I ordered him the black spiderman..well he decided he really did not like it but left the house with it and when they went to pick up one of the Ninja girls she said I have a Banana costume. Guess what is going on Ebay next year..A spiderman Adult costume and he already knows NOT to ask me to buy him another one costume again. Can I tell you how much easier it was when he was 3 and was happy with Thomas the Train:)

McCain's Speech

I just watched John McCain's concession speech and I have to say it made me CRY. I personally like him and I think his speech was with a lot of DIGNITY!! I even have more respect for him then I did! I do agree with what he said..I did not vote for Obama but I will support him when he is the President. I just hope he follows through with what he has people believing.

I DID...did YOU?

The sign speaks for it self..I got there at 5:20 AM and there was no one there so I left went home and got Hank and came back at 5:45 AM and there was a line. From start to finish we were there a hour. I can not imagine what the wait will be later.

Hank built a Deck on the otherside of the pool as it is was slope with ugly groundcover. He still needs to build arbor type roof on the 3 back post. I LOVE IT and it is GREAT to have the extra space in the back!!


Halloween Party


This family came Trick or Treating..she is 11 weeks pregnant. I have no idea who they were..just thought they looked GREAT!!

Cupcakes and Witch Hat cookies


Halloween Decorations

I did not take any pictures of my kids on Halloween...Tyler went to a Friends house to go with a group of kids from school Trick or Treating and we went over later for a party. It was a TON of fun and the kids had a BLAST. A couple of the kids kept saying that we needed to "try" to scare them...Well, we did as we all got in the backyard and hid in different places and came out at different times. They all "ACTED" like they hated that we did it but they LOVED IT!!!

Nicholas went with some kids from school but did not actually trick or treat. A few swim kids came over as they "heard" we had Full Size SNICKERS:) and Ryne won the prize in my book for his costume..He was AquaMan and he ACTUALLY WORE IT TO SCHOOL!!!

Next is a few pictures of my cupcakes I made for a party we had on Saturday night and some of the food I made..I LOVE to host partys and would love to have a business of making appitizers as I think it is so FUN!!!

Fall Festival..Tyler and his "friends"

I have been BUSY lately and have not been taking or posting pictures..Karen keeps asking to see a picture of Tyler and his TABLE of GIRLS from the Fall Festival! Hers is the cute on in the orange hat. The HATS were a HUGE hit that night..we did a Hat Walk (think cake walk but you won a hat instead:)
