I don't think, well - I'm sure, that none of you know my good friend JT Henderson. Although JT and I haven't spoken in probably 10 years or so, he is truly a great guy. We worked together at UPS back in the day and I always loved to work with him and play ball after work. Those Waffle House trips at 4 am were pretty awesome as well. I think he still owes me $8 from one of those. Maybe I owe him.

Anyways, please visit www.5millionminus1.blogspot.com . Him and his wife are selling hand painted Christmas ornaments to raise money to bring home a child they have adopted in Ethiopia. HOOK THEM UP!!! I haven't met his wife, but I know the kind of person that JT is, and their child will be blessed to be in their home. The ornaments are $5 - so order as many as you can.

Plus, I don't know someone else that enjoys Tommy Boy as much as I do than JT.

more sleeping arrangments

I'm so excited for thanksgiving and Christmas. I can't believe it's just around the corner. I'm itching to put up my new Christmas Tree:) and all the other fun things I bought on clearance after Christmas last year!!!

All the kids want to sleep in the same room. No one wants to be a lone. I think tonight we're going to put the bunk beds in Isaac's room. There will be three bed in there then and they all can sleep together and still have their own beds. We'll see how that goes. It means we'll have an extra room. Maybe we'll make it into a guestroom, or craft (sewing) room, or weight room, etc...... the possibilities are endless.

New Floors!

Tuesday our living room floors got replaced. Amazing how our toilet flooding has turned out great:) Now hopefully we can take good care of these floors. Our bedroom and closet are still yucky cement floors. They'll be replaced in a few weeks. The carpet we pick is on back order.

I love, love, love Halloween! It's my favorite holiday. I had so much fun making Jackson's costume this year. If you haven't heard Jackson is obsessed with hot air balloons. So when I asked him what he wanted to be for Halloween, he said a hot air balloon. I was thinking "A WHAT?"

Anyways it turned out O.K. it was a little wobbly all night but he loved it. He didn't want to take it off and asked if he could wear it inside. He made out like a bandit. When people saw him they loaded him up with candy.

Makayla was a southern bell zombie, and Isaac was a ninja.

Makayla thinks her candy is going to last all year, but she forgot about the mommy factor. Oops. Maybe this year I'll control myself a little better.
