Sometimes it isn't such a good idea! I'm still laughing about it so thought I'd share. We have some pumpkins that we had got in October that are still good. So I cooked 2 of them today and set off to make some goodies. Made some pumpkin cookies and some bread then took the kids off to bathe. Get back upstairs and start washing the dishes so we can make some more cookies(Russian teacakes this time!) I grab the bowl that the pumpkin had been in only to find pumpkin still in it-Yes I made pumpkin bread without the pumpkin, interesting concept isn't it!! #3 and I went on to make the cookies and I made another loaf of bread with pumpkin after that. I guess we'll see which bread they like better in the morning LOL
I have 3 more pumpkins to cook and bake tomorrow, I'll make sure to stay alert;

they say.....

Earlier today we got a call asking if #1 and #2 wanted to dress up like a wise man and shepherd for a song at church. We said yes and were discussing what to wear during dinner. #3 pipes up "I want to be a dinosaur for Christmas!" This cracks the older kids up-sorry kid there are no dino's in the nativity scene...although if you got a Christmas card from us last year you would see that he played the part of dino in the nativity scene at our house. Guess he's still stuck on that idea!

Oh, and if you haven't heard, #3 wants to be a donkey when he grows up! In case your curious on his choice of occupation, he has seen Shrek and loves donkey!

Great Company!

It's not often that you can work for such a great company. I had placed a small order for a customer last week. There was a little bit of a delay in receiving the order because of the winter weather going through OKC. I received my package today, to find the President of our company had packaged and signed my order! How neat is that, when the top guy helps out where ever needed. I plan to be more active in the book business this year. It's fun to share the love of books!

How to play in snow

in Hawaii. 1. Wear tennis shoes(we found out last year slippers are not a good idea). 2. Wear gloves and hats. 3. Have fun!

A little rain didn't slow them down. #4 Played with a little snowball but wasn't too interested yet.
