Granny gave Little Girl the cutest little chair. It is fabric and needs to be recovered. I found these fabrics online. Little Girl's room is in Hawaiian with one wall in lime green (cuter than it sounds). What do you think?

1. Would grow with her and is the most functional, if pink and green can be called functional.

2. The multi color flip flop pattern is really cute.....
3. then the lime/brown combo..

Okay, which choice? I will add a picture of the adorable chair later in the day....

I have many things for which to be thankful.... here are a few...
1. Big Daddy has a good job that he loves~takes the pressure off me.
2. 3 marginally healthy kids~#1 is sick and currently sleeping on the bathroom floor, otherwise, they are healthy.
3. A good family that is concerned about my "business"
4. Good friends like Skippy and MPPoo
5. XM radio, trivial? maybe~but I love it. Especially channel 35, all Christmas music!!

That is a short list of my blessings......

OHHHH! Little girl and I are making these cookies for Thanksgiving!

Been busy!

Sorry for the extended vacation~we have been busy. I hate to hear people say that, cause the fact is---we are ALL busy. Got my almost teenager, who thinks he is grown, to help me get my Christmas tree decorations into the house. I officially have my decorations UP and ready for viewing! Not that anyone has EVER come to view them.....you never know.

The marketing people of the world are getting their wish. Every toy commercial that comes on is followed with Angel saying,"Sissy, would you add that to my list?" She says "Sure" then never does. He doesn't know that.

I will post some pics on Monday, or Tuesday or such

This is MY car.
This is Big Daddy's car.....

Am I the only one that sees the unfairness in it all? So what if he works 2 jobs and has NEVER taken a sick day and makes about a gazillion times more money than I do....it is still not fair.

I did something this morning I have NEVER done. I waited in line to vote! I mean, I waited behind 4 or 5 people. As I drove to work I noticed the other voting precincts in town had a line OUT THE DOOR! What a wonderful thing to see on this cool Autumn morning~people waiting to vote. I made my choices, Angel got to push the VOTE button and off we went. Democracy is good.
