I'm so excited, I can't believe I have finally made it onto a DT! I received a email from Robin at [Moments 2 Remember] today saying I was one of the ones chosen, I like to have fell out of my chair!! I fill like such a ROCK STAR!!!

I can't wait to see who all else was chosen as well. It is just too darn exciting;) As soon as I know more, I will have to go bloggen some more. Oh, and I get my very own, personal, bright and shiny Blinke!! What perks,I gota tell ya.

Sara our {other child}..

For mothers day my husband bought me a sweet little Silke Terrier. Seeing I'm the only female in the house, I just had to have the little girl. She is the cuutest little thing that you ever did see, but I have got to tell you, it is like having another toddler in the house!

She is totally in love with anything shreddable! Which is driving me nuts. At night I put her in the bathroom to sleep, she has one of those doggy bed things in there, otherwise she cries standing beside the bed all night, and I get up the next morning on the wrong side of the bed {if you know what I mean}. Any who, this dog could be an alarm clock, you could set your morning by her bladder let me tell ya, about 6:30 everymorning she starts to whine, cause she has got to tinkle,NOW, and she even does one of those little dances like the kids do when they have got to go!! Any who, I drag myself out of the bed, open the bathroom door and....OH...MY...GOSH..JUMPIN...JELLYBEANS.. that dog has gotten into the bathroom cabinet and has TOTALLY made confetti out of a whole ...brand new...package of toilet paper. And of course she just looks up at me setting on her little fanny with the look of {what?} on her face.

She can find a single piece of bubble gum paper and shred it up, and you are thinking how is that EVEN possable, to make that much of a mess from that!? Now my husband says if she is chewing on something pick it up and give her a little swat on the bottom with it, and that will stop her from chewing on that stuff...

Well that is fine..but I dont think throwing confetti at her is going to accomplish much..HELLO!!

and right now she just tried chewing on the corner of the computer desk, oh I could just see me trying to pick up this enormess desk and trying to give her a swat on the bottom with that!! Would't that be a sight! LOL

Anyway if I could bottle some of the essence of this sweet little dog, my new companion, since all of my babys are now in school, I could make a small fortune to these here party companys!!!

Cup runith over..

When we were at the Homecoming, watching the boys ride the rides, I had one of those slow motion, cup runnith over, tear in my eye moments.

Bailey and Tyler were riding this ride called the Scrambler, and as anyone knows this thing really books it!! Those two were having the time of their lives, Laughing it up, smashed against each other..actually not fighting, for a change. In that moment the Scrambler seemed to be moving in this slow motion picture movie kind of way and all I seen and all I heard was the laughs and smiles of just those two boys. For some reason, even though they had rode that ride amillion times already, for some reason I had this dawning hit me like a ton of bricks..I wanted that moment seared into my brain, I wanted that moment to last for ever.

In my everyday life as a stay at home mom, they always do cute things, and then you have those times when, you want to slap a POSTAGE STAMP on their forehead and send them to Africa!!
But occasionally you have those moments that you never want to forget. Your mind wants to take a photo, to capture that in your memories. I love those moments.

Yep, I'm at it again..

I know I know I said I was'nt going to try out for DT for a while....but I just can't resist. I want this so bad I can taste it. I'm working on e-mails, for the try outs now. Crossing all crossable body parts!! God Bless

Back to School..

Time to go and buy school shoes, for the boys, which I detest doing, they are worse than a bunch of girls trying to decide on what shoes they want, and you kn0ow they always pick the most expensive pair on the rack, which they know I'm going to say no to, because yes for a couple of weeks they will stay all shiny and new, until they see that pond in our yard all sparkly, beckoning one of them to step in...IN THEIR NEW SHOES, which totally drives me nuts! Any hoo, first we went to Goodys, would you believe the kids shoes had been picked through by vultures, and someone had decied to steal a pair of shoes, I open up a shoe box expecting to see a shinny pair of new shoes..instead this stench floats out of the box, and low and behold someone performed a shoe swap, those were some very funky shoes in that box. Shame Shame. Anyway we wound up at Payless, were the name can be a misconception, and after much bickering we settled on some shoes....phew I survived.

What fun it is!

We were at the our local fair last hot, the bank sign sayed 102 degrees. The boys had a ball riding all those rides, they were bellering like a bunch of wild banchees!! Oh, the smells at the fair are just the greatest, they can take you back to being a kid, and remembering all the excitement of your parents taking you to the fair. Cotton candy, burgers , corndogs, candied apples. Yum

The greatest is I took some pretty cool photos, I love the one at the top, it appears as if that ride is totally going to go into orbit! We are going to go again another night, have to see if I can get some photos of the square dancers. Every night the have this huge squaredance floor, and everynight no matter how HOT it is out there if you can dose E doe they are out there dancing{ it is too cute watching the little kids get out there and dance.
