I was tagged!!

Okay I was tagged by my sweet cousin Marisa; I want her and everyone else to know I am supposed to be doing laundry and dishes instead of typing this blog post.

Had you for a second there didn't I. ((((Evil laughing)))) I despise housework so this gives me an excuse to do something else.

So here goes my 8's

8 TV shows I watch (really its like used to watch I just seem too busy these days to remember to turn the TV on at night after my children go to bed. And they cancelled some of the shows I really liked.)

1. CSI
2. CSI New York
3. ER
4. Criminal Minds
5. The Ellen Show (because my neighbor watches it while our children play after school)
6. The Tonight Show
7. Mystery (PBS Series)
8. Word Girl (PBS kids show)

Can you tell we don't have cable yet.

8 Restuarants I like to eat at:
1. Red Lobster
2. Olive Garden
3. Outback Steakhouse
4. Cheesecake Factory
5. PF Changs
6. Bamboo Grille
7. Elephant Bar
8. Carlos O' Brians

8 Things that happened today:
1. I bought our dog a Halloween costume.
2. I did dishes.
3. I did laundry.
4. I drove the girls to school, they missed the bus.
5. I talked to my mom.
6. Made preparations for my husband's birthday on Saturday.
7. I ate a peanut butter and honey sandwhich for lunch.
8. I surfed on You Tube instead of moping my bathroom floor.

8 Things I look forward to:
1. Halloween!
2. Christmas!
3. My sister Holly coming to visit.
4. A day when I dont have to get up before 6am.
5. Seeing Twilight the movie.
6. Doing my Christmas shopping.
7. Finishing some Christmas projects.
8. Taking a nap.

8 Things on my wish list:
1. A Zutter. (Its a cool scrapbook related item.)
2. For the economy to get better.
3. A raise for my husband and brothers-in-law.
4. I wish I could finally lose the extra 35 lbs I have been carrying around the last 4 years and never find them again.
5. I wish I could take horse back riding lessons so I could ride with my oldest daughter.
6. I wish and hope that my youngest daughter will be totally toilet trained before 5th birthday. (Remember she has an Austism Spectrum disorder, potty training is way down on the list compared to communication and safety. It will happen, I am just impatient.)
7. I wish my sisters did not have to work.
8. I wish that my older sister and my brother-in-law can adopt a baby next year.

8 People I will tag

Hmmmmm, I have to see who has been tagged and get back to you on that.

Where have I been????

Okay I know where I have been but all of my adoring fans (all three of you) are definitely wondering what I have been up to these past two weeks. So here is the top ten things I have been doing:

1. Celebrated oldest daughter's 10th Birthday (Yikes! I have a 10 year old!!!)
2. Oldest daughter got glasses. (Picture to follow)
3. Worked on and survived Crafting Saturday at my church.
4. Caught a cold.
5. Laid in bed for two days, then got out of bed and cleaned.
6. Went to the Desert Botanical Gardens (The Monarch Butterfly exhibit was awesome, photos to follow.)
7. Worked on my Christmas Album class (Teaching it tonight!)
8. Obsessed about Halloween costumes.
9. Tried to figure out how to attend 3 "Fall" parties at school and 3 parent-teacher conferences all in a 72 hour time frame.
10. Re-read Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and 1/2 through Breaking Dawn. (Edward, SIGH, to bad he is fictional, wink)

I promise I will get more pictures posted things have just been CRAZY. I miss you all.

Legos are for girls (and Mommy too!)

My dear husband bought himself a set of Legos a while back because he wanted to use them for a robotics project he was doing in his spare time; little did he know that once our youngest daughter saw the aforementioned Legos that she would take great pains to get her little hands on them. Daddy gave permission for our little darling to play with the Legos (while supervised by Mommy.) Ever since her first Lego experience she has become quite interested in building with them; houses and towers are her favorites. She also likes to build the projects that are shown in the little booklet that was in with the Legos. Today she asked me to the make the red truck that was in the instruction booklet. I was really digging this so I put the little Lego man inside the cab so he could drive our truck. We had lots of fun so I took some pictures of our red truck and my youngest playing with the Legos.

See the Lego man's smiling face; he is in Lego Truck heaven.

" Mom, Help! Its stuck!" (Mom puts down the camera and prys the Legos apart.)

She likes to build tall buildings. "Up, Up, Up," says my girl.

"Honk Honk Beep Beep Vroom Vroom!"

Keep on Truckin' my blogging friends!

PS. Thanks to everyone that weighed in on the Facebook question. I am going to keep working on my Facebook page and enjoy the pages of my friends.

I have been goofing around on Facebook today; inviting friends and updating my profile. I am taking a poll on what folks think about Facebook so please vote; yes I really want to know that's how twisted I am.
