During our trip to Gulf Shores way back in September, we made so many stops at McDonald's that we managed to collect almost all of the Wizard of Oz dolls they were giving away. (And can I just say that I actually feel my blood sluggishly pumping through my arteries as I think about that...)
The other day Corinne and I were playing with the Lullaby girl, the Lollipop guild boy, Dorothy, and Glenda the Good Witch.
I had to laugh when Corinne picked up Dorothy's skirt and went "shew!" like I do when she has a stinky diaper.
"We wish to welcome you to Munchkin Land!"
I finally got around to planning and initiating a Morgan Family Night around here. I feel like Andrew is definitely old enough that he will enjoy this and Corinne will learn how.
Recently, I got on a kick of making smores at home. Since we have a gas stove, I just light it up, roast a mallow over the flame, then stick on a graham cracker with some chocolate. Yum.
Why do feel like I'm posting about food all the time???
I know, I know. I missed two days of blogging, but I'm not down for the count. I am still going to try and blog every day for National Blog Posting Month.
It's just that my computer is having another one of its meltdowns. You may remember that this same thing happened awhile back and I just pray that it doesn't happen again.
I've got too much Christmas shopping still to do and I need the internet for a lot of it.
Speaking of, I haven't actually started my Christmas shopping yet, so I guess I've still got all of it to do...
I'll be back soon with pictures and more videos!
Andrew said two things today that really made me laugh.
First, we got lunch at Sonic after church and he told us he wanted a cheeseburger. Once we got home, he had changed his mind. He asked if we had gotten him a stick dog.
Second, he and I were playing and cuddling before his quiet time this afternoon, and he started to play with my hair right on top of my forehead. He said, "You're hair looks like grass. Brown grass."
I could think of someone else who's hair looks like brown grass, too...He never ceases to entertain us.
Andrew and I were making pretzels
The dancing ladybug and the shy, or slightly distracted, cowboy!
*NOTE: turn down the volume big time on the last clip. Corinne was digging the loud, live band at the Fall Fun Fest.
On Friday, I took the kid to Corinne's playgroup for a Halloween get together. All the kids wore their costumes and we tried to get the best group picture we could. There are few missing off the side of the couch, but total there were about thirteen kids there!
Here's Andrew with his good friend Tessa. These two are like peas in a pod, bacon and eggs, peas and carrots... you get the picture!
Apparently, blogger or my computer hates me because every time today that I've tried to start a post and insert pictures, everything freezes up! You have no idea how much that infuriates me.
So, we had a ton of fun Friday night for Halloween. Wish I could show you some pictures, but maybe tomorrow...
Is anyone excited that Christmas is coming up??? I totally am! I see Thanksgiving as a really fun holiday for my family to get together and have fun, but really its just something to help me get past my impatience for Christmas to get here already! Really, I love any holiday that my family gets together because I love my family so much, but Christmas, oh my word. It's so fun!
I actually can't stand buying gifts too early because I inevitably end up giving them to their intended recipient way before Christmas. I just can't wait for them to have this wonderful thing I bought for them to enjoy. Similarly, Clark has learned not to even mention that he knows what he's getting me or that he's already bought it because the pestering, it will never cease.
However, this year, Clark has a very bad rotation the month of December. Very. Bad. Chances are he won't even be home for Christmas. So, I've determined that I absolutely have to get all our shopping done before November is over. Its gonna be crazy.
I started making the list today of things I want and things I want the kids to get. I find Clark to be a very difficult person to buy for. But this year, I know exactly what I want to buy him. And it's gonna be great!
So, I'm going to end this rambly post by apologizing for the lack of pictures and Halloween content and encouraging you to stay tuned for those and updates on the Christmas shopping.
Two weeks ago today Clark and I were on our own in a rental car driving north on Highway 4 towards Gainesville, FL. No Wiggles music, no little voices talking - just a good book and quiet...
Oh my, we had a great trip to Orlando two weeks ago. Let me just go ahead and say that there isn't much to do there outside of Disney, a little fact I was not aware of. But, Clark and I still managed to have a fun trip. Just being alone with my man and not having to follow any schedule was awesome.
Well, Clark did have a few things to attend at the American Society of Anesthesiologists National Conference, but we still had lots of free time.
