7 going on 15

This morning as I was strangling my alarm(phone) begging the time to go back 10 hours so I will go to bed and not stalk a new blog for 2 hours. Girl#1 enters my room and asks me to tighten her pant waist. Here is the conversation.....

#1- Can I wear a skirt?
Mom- No and stop asking me that every morning it's cold
#1- I never get to wear a skirt no more
Mom- Anymore

At this point she flings her pants on my head and replies " no more is a word you know"

Good thing I love her...

Adventure in Pumpkin Bread

I would not claim to be a great baker. I would not claim to be a bad baker. My friend Suzi inspires me to be more domestic in the kitchen so I decided to make Pumkin Bread. I learned a few things after making 4 batches(yes 4)

If you do not put in Baking Soda, your bread will resemble a brick and be horrible.

Libbys Easy Pumpkin Mix IS NOT the same as Libbys Pumpkin Puree no matter what the teenage worker boy at Safeway says.

You can not forget half the oil in the recipe and have it turn out the same.(but it wasn't to horrible)

If the recipe calls for Vanilla pudding and you have used all the ones you bought Chocolate Fudge pudding is just as yummy.

Suzi is my hero!!!

Wii playin

Mt.T has wanted a Wii since they first came out but I am pretty anti-gaming so we never got one. I have since witnessed many people playing and I have come to approve of the Wii soooo instead of going to the fair we decided to put that money towards a Wii. I am so happy we did. We have has so much fun as a family playing and it is great bribery for many things.

Homework is done promptly and with out argument. Bedrooms are cleaned to MY standard. Little girls are so helpful. If it only worked for Daddy's.

The cutest thing is when Girl#3 realized that she didn't have a control to play with. So we improvised and gave her the remote for the Christmas Tree Lights. She thought she could play with the best of them. Till she realized that hers didn't have cool lights on it.

Girl#2 is amazing at Bowling. She was having a hard time playing right handed so she tried it left handed and she has much better control. When she plays she always plays as a lefty.

The girls love Mario Cart that is all they want to play. Girl #1 has better control then me.

I see the family having many fun game nights..anyone wanna join us???

A is for Apple

Girl #2 had a Fall Apple Program for her Kindergarten class. They sang songs about all the different kind of Apples there are. The kids really learned alot about them while having fun.

She then showed us some things she has learned. She had drawn pictures of different was cute to see her"portraits" of her family we all had arms coming out of our heads...very cute. She has such a wonderful teacher. Girl #1 had her also we love her.

After the program we were treated to carmel apples. I have to admit I have never had one. They were yummy.

*****these are not the best pictures of Kennedy but this is what we have.
