A Corny Feast!

William had his 'Corny Thanksgiving Feast' yesterday at school. Why Corny? B/c the meal consisted of foods made out of 'corn'! They had corn chips, pop corn, corn bread, canned corn, and pumpkin pie (I don't know how that fits into the 'corn' theme--but I didn't make up the menu). William was excited b/c he got to choose this year if he was going to be an Indian or a Pilgrim. It is funny because I can still think back to 1st grade and remember that we didn't get to choose and I had to be an Indian! And I wanted to be a Pilgrim with a cute bonnet. Funny how certain things damage your psychi when you are little. Well, as you can see William wanted to be an indian! I noticed that all but 2 boys chose to be indians- interesting. So they (we) lined the 1st grade hall with butcher paper and the kids sat on the floor at it, like a table and ate their feast! All 120 kids! It went rather well considering the possibilities.

My favorite part was when William decided to try pumpkin pie. My son is extremely picky--I mean it is not that he just won't eat veggies or most fruits but he won't eat a lot of candies and cakes...it's a texture thing. Anyway, I guess he is getting braver and wanting to try things lately. He got a piece (had to be with out whip cream--I told you, picky)   and he kind of nibbled at it. Surprised that it was sweet he took a few more bites. People my son was literally gagging. I mean I thought he might throw up right in the middle his plate. Then he would swallow and smile. I asked him how it was and this was his answer. "Mom, it is just so good- my mouth is gagging on it b/c it is so good and I want to get it in my tummy as quick as I can!" I just shook my head and said "That's great hon!" He only took about 3 bites of it but hey, it is a step in the right--- at least he is now trying things!

Hope you all have a Happy Thanskgiving!!

i am second

Wow is all I have to say. This a video of Brain Welch, who is the former lead singer of Korn (or KoRn)---for those of you who are not sure who or (what) Korn is, they are a heavy rock band.

And just to give you a little background, wikipedia's definition:  Korn is an American rock band from Bakersfield, California, which formed in 1993. The band's catalogue consists of nine consecutive debuts in the top ten of the Billboard 200. To date, Korn has sold over 30 million albums worldwide while earning six Grammy nominations—two of which they have won. Check this out, it is pretty cool.

A guy who has had it all and tried everything---finds true contentment and rest. Awesome.

The Chase!

I thought this was so funny-- I don't know why he gets so excited about the vacuum but he chases me around when I do the floors. I thought at first it was for the cord but after watching some more he wants the actual vacuum! I guess he shares my love for a Dyson : )

Where's Vimmer!?

Recently Vimmer has started learning how to play Peak-A-Boo...Of course I think it is super cute---but I am suppose to! (you may want to turn your volume down a bit--sorry for my loud, high pitched voice!)

Halloween at Last!!

I finally have some pictures to up load thanks to my sweet husband who went out of his way to get the pictures off his camera and onto the hard drive (thanks love!). So we started out the festivities with a Pumpkin Carving Party on Friday night. It was a lot of fun, and we end up with some really great pumpkins. We had a Thomas the Train, aTm, Statue of Liberty, Deer, Flag, and so many more! We ended up with almost 30 carved pumpkins.

Then first thing Saturday morning we had a soccer game. Vimmer sported a tiger costume to stay warm and the players all sprayed their hair orange! They had a great game, and won!

William originally wanted to be a ninja for Halloween, and I told him I really wasn't a fan of 'Ninjas' since they are violent and would really like him to think of something else. Well once he saw Vimmer's monkey costume he decided he wanted to be a monkey too! Well, let me tell you, they do not make a boys size 8 monkey costume. So I was left to make a costume (I don't even have a sewing machine). So let's just say it was a joint effort. I basically took William's school clothes and used them as a pattern. Once I cut out all the pieces, my mother-in-law, Vicki, hand stitched the pants. Then after I worked on the costume till 2 am Friday, I had my mom bring her sewing machine over.  So my mom and I worked on the costume all afternoon on Halloween. I have to say, it came out much better than expected. And just remember before you see it, that this costume came strictly out of my 'imagination' and there wasn't a pattern used.

One Picture

Ok, so my laptop is still being worked on. I am praying I am able to get a few pictures and documents off of it...I had backed up most of them but still lost some from the October Festivities. Right now I am using a loaner laptop and I can not for the life of me figure out how to open up the pictures off of Vim's camera on this computer--grrr. But I am able to get the pictures off of my camera--the only problem is that I took all the pictures with Vim's camera : ) except One! So here is the only picture I have to show you guys:

This is on the way to Austin this weekend for Vimmer's friend Jack's 1st birthday party! One day, maybe I will get to post some of those pictures from the party.

I will try to take more pictures with my camera in the coming days so that the grandparents, aunties and uncles will have something to see!

Computer down!

My laptop completely shut down on me last week! I have so many fun pictures to share with you, but currently I am stuck with a small itouch as my only way of communicating with the outside world! Stay tuned. Hopefully my computer will be up and running soon!
