The following is a clip of Seth playing with his flarp. This was a prize from his teacher at school and all 4 of the kids thought it was hilarious! Mommy was glad when the prize finally went bad...probably from too much use! :) Just a few days ago, it was deposited in the trash can....It stopped working. Thank goodness!!! Seth wanted me to take a clip of it and share it on my blog.....Enjoy!

Now Samuel wants a John Deere, backhoe, excavator, crane, combine (and whatever farm and construction equipment that I didn't name) quilt. Maybe I'll make him one for Christmas!

~MOMMY, SIMON & Sunny Bunz~Simon and I were sitting in the car outside of the Dollar General Store. We were waiting for Seth to buy some Dishwasher Detergent. (I have started letting the boys go inside the store for me to buy 1-2 items. It is a whole lot faster, than me having to unbuckle 2 kids in car seats, chase them around the store, find the item, buy it, than re-buckle them back in again. It feels like I have ran a marathon just to buy a box of trash bags, etc....!) All of the sudden I heard, "Mommy, why don't we go to Sunny Bunz Tanning Salon!" I think to myself, 'where did that come from?' I looked back at him and his face was totally serious. I proceeded to explain to him what a tanning salon is, what you do there, and why I don't want to go to a place like that. His eyes were as big as saucers (He inherited his mother's VERY large popping eyes)! He asked more questions and all I wanted to do was to laugh so bad at his reaction at my answers, but realized he was very seriously processing all the information I gave him. I highly doubt that he will ever want to go and tan at a salon!!!!!
~MOMMY, CALLIE & SAMUEL IN THE KITCHEN~
Samuel had gotten into something he wasn't supposed to for the hundredth time yesterday. I was telling him what I thought about his behavior in a LOUD voice. (NO, I was NOT yelling. I can yell, but I wasn't this time. :) Callie was standing right beside her brother taking it all in. I look over at her, she puts her hands on her hips, and says in a serious voice, "Mommy, you need to TALK!" I guess she thought I was yelling. Goodness, is she really only 2 years old!

For all of my childhood memories
Or for teaching me the value of hard work,
If I have forgotten, I'm thanking you now
LADY: Hello! I'm calling from Everdry...
ME: (interrupting) Ma'am could you please take us off your list. We're NOT interested!
LADY: Don't you want to take us up on our free offer?
ME: No, You have called us several times and I have told you that we're NOT interested and to please take us off your list!
LADY: Several people in your area have called us about seepage.
ME: Ma'am, I can get rude if you would like me to! Please take us off your list. (Now maybe I shouldn't have said that, but I was trying not to screech in her ear that I AM NOT INTERESTED AND PLEASE STOP CALLING ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
LADY: What kind of foundation do you have?
ME: At this point, I am speechless......I expected an apology for bothering me or something else....not THAT! I say nothing and push the TALK button.
CONVERSATION ENDED. By the way, I am on the DO NOT CALL list. How do these people still get my phone number?

I would like to salute all the brave men and women who have sacrificed in service to our country. They are the reason the United States of America continues to be the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Please remember that Veteran's Day is far more than a day off work or a big sale at all the stores in town. :) Men and Women have given and are still giving their lives every day for our country! We should take few moments to honor the service men and women that we know with a sincere and heartfelt thank you.
A special thank you goes out to my father-in-law, David Thomas, my brother-in-law, Jerry Case, my deceased grandfather, Lester McIntosh & my brother, Nathan McIntosh for serving their country.
