Then today at church someone called me pregnant.
So I am officially proclaiming to all that I am starting a diet TODAY! And I am crying on the inside.....maybe that will get rid of a little water weight.

The morning started with my cat puking on the back porch and then eating it. I thought I would spare you all, so I didn't take a picture of that.
Hazel and I stayed home to be all domesticated. We decorated and cleaned and cooked to prepare for our company.
Then some of the people I am most thankful for gathered around the table to eat lots of good food.
Then we got ready for the game. Go Cowboys!
The game was so good that all the boys fell asleep.
Then we decided to take a walk and work off some of those turkey calories. Being the genius that I am, I locked us all out of the house. :) So we were all trying to find a way in the house, and to make a long story short....Chris tried to slide open a window and his hand went right through it. I can't say I'm surprised since our windows are the crappiest, thinnest, single pane windows in the world, but I have to say it was pretty darn scary. I heard the shatter and went running around the corner expecting to find a bloodied carcass (ok that's a little extreme, but it was scary). So now you know the story. It wasn't Chris' insane temper that caused the break, and he wasn't too bloody. Just a few scratches. What a way to end the evening. :)

Anyway- like I said. I'm back.....with absolutely nothing interesting to say. So- here are some of the non-interesting things I can share:
We've been doing a lot of yard work lately in preparation for the bulk trash pickup in our area. I'm really trying to find ways to improve our yard and our house's curb appeal without spending any money.
I realize you can't see it, but there is a huge flowering bush that was taking over our front porch, so I put up this lattice (that I found behind the shed). It still needs to be boarded up on one side so that it stands up straight, but at least we can get in the front door now, and I think it will look much prettier to train it to grow up something.
Hazel was literally just a few inches from this duck and he just sat there. Creepy.
They were having some kind of old timey car convention thingy. I thought these cars were cute.

We have a daughter that throws crazy almost epileptic fits about just about everything. In this case, she was sitting in said chair playing on the computer and I told her it was time to turn it off.
This is the result:

G-Mommy wanted to go ahead and get the kids their Christmas presents while she was here so she wouldn't have to deal with shipping. And we definitely didn't hear any complaints from Hazel and Owen. She did end up having to order Owen's online, which was a portable DVD player, so he opened a piece of paper, but he was still pretty thrilled when he realized what it was...and even more thrilled when it arrived!
I took a lot of pictures of her with the kids, but we managed to go ten days without getting a single picture of us together! So this will just be a log of sorts.

"Try it Carly!"
Then she ended it with a big hug! Isn't Carly such a lucky cat?!?!

When I put Hazel in the car to leave this morning, she had a tissue in her hand that she kept trying to stick up her nose. She had been doing this for about the last 20 minutes, but I didn't think anything of it since she has had a little bit of a runny nose lately. After buckling her in her carseat, I finally took the tissue from her so I could help her wipe, and I looked up her nose to see some kind of white bulbous thing filling up her nasal cavity. Of course I went into panic mode and reeled through a list of possibilities in my head while jumping in the car and speeding towards the doctor's office. After a couple of minutes, I calmed down enough to convince myself that it wasn't a tumor, and I turned back towards the house. I used a bulb syringe and a little white NERD came out on the second try.
Thank goodness I didn't waste that $20 copay! I just think it's hilarious...and strange...that she didn't come tell me right away. Usually her fear of being hurt outweighs her fear of being punished, but I guess the latter won this time around. She got a long speech about putting stuff in her nose and ears....including threats of going to the hospital and having her nose cut open! I'm pretty sure that will do the trick.

Me: "Oh yeah? Who did you vote for?"
Owen: "John McCain"
Me: "Why is that?"
Owen: "Because he's the president"
I'm not sure what he meant by that, but I have a few ideas. I tried to ask more questions to figure out why he felt compelled to vote for McCain, but the most I could get out of him was that he had seen pictures of them. I guess he just thought McCain looked like what he assumed a president looked like.
Then he told his G-Mommy the same story but he said
"I voted for John McCain and some lady. I didn't know that lady was on there. My teacher just told me about John McCain and Orama."
Then we had to explain to him that there was a vice president because he wanted to know why he had to vote for two presidents. Such a funny conversation. I should have recorded it immediately, because I'm pretty sure I have forgotten half of the cute things he said....
