Over the Top!



This is the award that Stacie gave me the other day.  I am so honored!  Lately I have been called "mean" ( my son), "crazy" (my daughter), "moody" (my husband) and  "nuts" ( Tosh).  So "Over The Top" is a real compliment.

Now for the rules: I need to pass this award on to five people, post on their blog to let them know I left this award, and then I need to answer a list of questions in ONE word. If you know me then you know one word is TOUGH!  I will do it though.

3. Your mother? sweet

4. Your father? silly

5. Your favorite food? Mexican

10. Your hobby? crafting

11. Your fear? lots

12. Where do you want to be in 6 years? healthy

32. Your best friend? sister

33. One place that I go to over and over? School

34. Facebook? Just

35. Favorite place to eat? My MIL's when we get JET'S Pizza


Ok, so I didn't follow the rules.  I am passing this award on to these 5 people:

Kathie....I am amazed by her personally, but WHAT she can do to a lunch note is amazing.  I can't even pack my daughter's lunch, let alone make these creations each day.  She is OVER THE TOP WONDERFUL!

Liza....I am in awe of her coloring skills.  Really, I 'm just horribly jealous.

Carly... She amazes me with her sheer ability to do so many things so wonderfully and with 2 little girls.

PattiJ... I can't believe all the challenges she can accomplish in one day.  She also has these little tidbits on her blog that make me giggle everytime.

Travelingmamma....Because her blog speaks to my soul through her stories, her generosity and her photography.

HALLOWEEN PICTURES




Elvis and Priscilla Presley have left the building!
My daughter would not let me cut this hair.  Some people thought she was Cher.  By the end of the night she wished she had listened to me:)




We had a lot of fun.  My son told everyone that gave him candy, "Thank you.  Thank you very much," while doing "the lip thing."  Some people got it and some didn't.  He came home and we got  him doing his rendition of Jailhouse Rock on video
.
We also decided to carve only one pumpkin this year. We ran out of time with illness and my hubby's work and school shedule.  This also saved us some money. It actually was a really fun family activity.  Next year we need a revolving display though so everyone can see all four sides of it.



I wish I had a card for you, but I don't.  Hopefully tomorrow.  We have had quite a bit of illness here lately.  Hope you all stay healthy and have a great Wednesday!

Thanks for the award! I know you won't believe this, but I just looked at your kid's Halloween photos (which are adorable!!!!), and guess what . . . our bricks are the same color on our houses. No kidding! I'm going to email you a brick pic! Tee hee! Okay, so now I must go earn my award! Thanks again for thinking of me!

LOL! I bet my mom has been called all those names too just by me!

It was nice to learn more about you and I just love the Halloween picture! I would of thought your daughter was Cher also! :P

Wishing all the illness would go away for you/your family!

Hugs,
