Mum also has sold 150 homemade apple pies this fall. Her pies are soooo YUMMY and completely the best pies EVER!!!
Roger and I spent the day shopping on Saturday and went out for lunch. We thought we had better get a start on the Christmas stuff. We finished most of the stuff up for the kids. It feels good to have that out of the way. The malls were insane!!!! Some places we would not even go into because the lines were too long. I of course can't tell you where we went as my little "eyes" read my blog!! haha....but it was nice to have some time with Roger.
Austin bugged me non stop about putting up Christmas decorations.... please, please Mom...can we?? He wanted so badly to put up the decorations and the tree. So on Sunday I decided that we would pull out some decorations and put some up. Well with this brings a mess of course....and I thought why do this more than once???? why make more work for yourself??? SOOO we put up the decorations and the trees. I have one in the entry and its all decorated but the one in the living room only has lights. We will put the decorations on later this week....that is no big deal and not that big of a mess. I really enjoy spending the time doing this with the children as we always share memories and remember who gave us the ornaments :) they love it too. The kids and I put the tree up ourselves....while bahumbug was in the garage doing some body work to his truck. We asked him to put the lights on the tree when he came in....GRUMBLE GRUMBLE GRUMBLE....he is SOOOO bahumbug!!!! He had promised to put the lights up outside this weekend but we had to make a choice between the tree lights or the outside lights because he wouldn't do both! lol ---- well i put a Santa hat on the grump and I have to share this picture with you....a true fashion statement....I looked down to find his feet looking like this!!! I have a picture of his face but I would not dare share it ....he is NOT looking happy!! lolololol
TOO FUNNY!!!!! This is what goes on his feet when he goes out for a smoke in the cold !! HAHAH He is going to love this! lol
This is what Simon did the whole time we were putting up decorations......he sees the stuff out....all the totes and says to me, "what is all this crap for?" oh man...he needs a better vocabulary!
Today Simon learned a few new words....this is what a lot of my days consists of!!! These blend charts....which he knows but will goof off badly while doing them!
He really does love the blend charts. You just never know what he is going to say next. We were studying about Noah and the ark, and he knows the story well. Okay, ummm....when asked who built the ark, Simon replies.... "Evan Almighty"....oh GREAT!!! I thought Roger was going to wet his pants laughing at this which only adds fuel to the fire!!
Well more school to finish, Emily is working on Health right now, Austin just finished a spelling test and got 95%. Simon is not quite finished and its almost time for supper so I better get the show on the road!
Happy Monday everyone!!!
