It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!!!

I think I have mentioned on this blog before that I don't have a very green thumb. Actually, the color is more like puce..........and I tend to have an issue growing things that will stay alive. Luckily, Ronnie has some success at it so we have green-ish grass 3 months out of the year.

So the fact that I grew this is just, well, downright amazing!

Ron thinks it is ugly, but having cared for it for the past few months I have grown to love it's bumpy exterior and uneven shape. I think he is kinda cute. And I grew him. So there.

P.S. As soon as I can get Jen to sit still for 14 seconds I will try and get a pic of her earrings and post it.

P.S.S. Tonight, as I was tucking the little bugger in, she told me a story about a mommy who likes milla (vanilla) ice cream and how that mommy shared it with Stephanie. She ended the story by saying "Happy Family"....which means Happily Ever After in Jennifer-land. She must not know me very well. I like chocolate ice cream and there is NO WAY I am sharing it with anyone!!!!!

I have been so busy lately that I completely forgot that I even HAD a blog until my friend Susan reminded me today and told me how bad I was that I hadn't posted since the 3rd of September. Oops.

Right now school is taking up a ton of my time (like always) and the weekends go by so fast that I feel like someone is playing a cruel joke on me!!!!

Some recent updates that I may have not shared:

1. Jennifer got her ears pierced (on a whim) a few weeks ago. We were all at the mall and we were passing one of those jewelry booths and Ron said to Jen, "Wanna get your ears pierced?" and before I know it, my little baby is in a chair with blue dots on her ears and two completely irresponsible teenagers are about to simultaneously mutilate her...I mean....give her pierced ears. I don’t think I was prepared because I almost lost it when I heard the “One, Two, Three”……*CLICK* and saw Jen’s face turn from complete and utter happiness to shear torture. She cried for maybe 5 seconds, they showed her a mirror with her new earrings, gave her a lollipop, and we were on our way. As soon as it happened she told Ron that the girls “pinched her”. That made me laugh, so all was right in the world.

2. I am teaching the "Family" Bo-Bunny board book class below at Memory Lane on October 19th. This is an awesome project that holds tons of pictures (and would make a fantastic gift for someone!!) If you are local and interested, call the store to see if there are any spots left (last I heard it was nearly sold out)! 215-529-9194

3. Homegrown tomatoes and cucumbers straight out of your own garden are 100 million times better than any other tomato or cucumber I have ever eaten. I’m just sayin’.

4. Possible trip to Dorney Park (a local amusement park for all you non-PA people out there) with the girls this weekend. If we go you KNOW I will have tons of photos to share. Maybe I will actually be in one. Maybe not. It will totally depend on my mood.

5. Stephanie’s birthday is in a few weeks (October 11th). She will be 7 years old (I can’t believe that I have an almost 7 year old). She wants a beta fish for her room and scrapbooking supplies. Ahhhhhhh. A girl after my own heart!

6. We are going out on our final camping trip of 2008 in a few weekends with my friend Rachael and her family (who have totally ditched their lovely pop-up camper for what we have dubbed the new “Sweetest ride”). I’m thinking that I can’t let Ron even go within 10 feet of this thing unless I want to add new camper to the list of big purchases that we want to make. I can’t wait for this trip!!! Time spent with the Chamberlain’s is always a good time!!!!

Other than that……I will leave you with a few pics of the girls.

I was tagged.....

Life always gets in the way of fun! I completely forgot that my buddy Marlene tagged me a few days ago and that I was supposed to tag 6 other people and write 6 random facts about myself. Oops. Sorry Marlooney!!!!

Well......since I don't think 6 people even read my blog (a big HELLO to the 2 of you out there who do frequent me here), I figured I would just make this an open tag for anyone interested and ask whomever stumbles upon this to post 6 random facts about themselves in my comments section. I would *love* to learn more about all of you!!!! goes my 6 random facts:

1. I was once paralyzed from the waist down for an entire day.
2. I joined the Air Force when I was 17 years old and I made marksman on the machine gun while in basic training. (And I have a ribbon on my uniform to proove it!)
3. I cannot eat throat lozenges. They make me gag and want to throw up. If I smell a throat lozenge that someone else is eating, I turn and run the opposite direction.
4. I am hypoglycemic (bad) and am considered 10% disabled by the military because of it.
5. When I was in high school I got MVP of the girls swim team the first (and only) year that I swam.
6. I have a crazy strong pinky toe that I have complete control over. I can pick things up with it and pinch people with it if they get on my nerves.

So...there you have it. My 6 random facts. I will leave you with a couple of recent pics of my 2 crazy kiddo's......
