Days that don't go so well...

I think we've found ourselves a new budding artist.
Now if only we can find ourselves a new budding carpet cleaner.

So there, SUCKA!

Guess what telemarketers - there's a new tool to work against your obnoxious calls with your rude & aggressive behavior. It's called Caller ID. Oh yes. I can call you right back and ask to speak with you by name. Or I can talk to your manager and tell him how inappropriate you were when you screamed, "You're rude," at me and hung up because I didn't want to give you my personal information. Oh yes. I can even call all the way up the corporate ladder and tell each exec. how awful and offensive you were in your "customer service."
So you think about that next time you buy my information from some internet site and call me up insisting that I requested you to call and harass me. That's called Karma, baby!

Happy Halloween, a bit late

We had fun this year coordinating our costumes to the Wizard of Oz theme. We even had an early Halloween party where we had the opportunity to preview our attire. Unfortunately, due to bad directions we drove around for an hour and a half before we finally made it to the party -- after it was over.

One thing we did learn, though, was that poor Hyrum was so terrified of my green make-up and black wig that I couldn't wear them on Halloween or my little flying monkey would bawl just looking at me!

And he makes SUCH a cute monkey!

How should I respond

when my 5 yr old says to me,

"Mom, you ruined all my lives! I don't have any left. When you disciplined me the first time it put a crack in my first life. And then my next life after that on the next day and then the next day and the next and the next, until all my lives have been all ruined. And it's all your fault!"

Ode to Andrea

We love you!!

Ten Points

...if you know who this is:

Answer? Buzz, a cyberbot from the show Cyberchase.

What does that have to do with anything? Andrea's birthday, of course!
Okay, so her birthday was back in September (19th), but I couldn't let the day go unacknowledged.
Andrea turned 5 years old (holy cow!) and received a surprise Cyberchase party. Cyberchase is her current favorite show. Its characters are stuck in a cyber-world and spend their time using math skills to defeat the evil Hacker.

As a special treat Grandma Pat came to visit! The girls spent the morning with Daddy and Grandma touring the SouthFork Ranch.

We played "Pin the wig on the Hacker."

Andrea loved her cake, loved her party, hooray! all was well!
