Happy Birthday Missy and Gabby!!!

Happy Birthday! For those of you who don't know, Missy is my sister, and Gabby is my sister-in-law, and they just happen to share a birthday! Missy and I will be the same age for the next two weeks! Crazy, huh?

The End

Well, the Dragon's season came to an end on November 1st. It was sad for it to end, because we know that some of the boys won't be returning next year. Tommy had a great time, even if his team ended up 0-8 for the season!
He loved his participation trophy and carried it around with him all day!

Tommy got the team award for footwork. He has the best feet on the team, unfortunately, he spent too much time with his footwork, and not enough time running! If you can read the certificate, you can see where Coach John misspelled the team's name! We still love you Coach John!

This is the only picture I had of Anna and Jake. Jake lives two doors down, and his brother Jared was on Tommy's team. Anna and Jake spent A LOT of time together this season! They really enjoyed playing together, and would spend a lot of time together at the park during soccer practice. Tommy and Anna are both sad that Jake and Jared are moving! (me too!)

Anna thought that the team needed some extra support, so she made this big sign and a few smaller ones. She did it all on her own and had a fun time doing it! Hopefully, we'll be making signs for Anna's soccer team next season!

Wii have a problem...

Eddie has an obsession with the wii-mote. He won't let go of it! I've tried, but he throws a fit! We've even tried hiding them, and he's okay, until Tommy wants to play the Wii. Sigh...I guess for Christmas Eddie will be getting his OWN wii-mote! Why can't he have a thing for big, white spoons, like Tommy did at that age? They're MUCH cheaper!


Danny and I finally got our new computer! We've actually had it for about a week or so, but it's taken us time to transfer everything. We got a great deal on it at and we actually spent $100+ LESS than we did on our old piece of crap Fry's off-brand computer! I'll be posting some pictures soon! Not of the computer, but in general. Yeah! Pictures!

Airing my dirty laundry

Yes, I must admit, I am not perfect, but I can usually keep my house (and even my van) clean and well-organized. I have forgotten how much more difficult it is to do my everyday chores with a toddler, especially one with a cold! So, my house is much less than perfect these days. Here's how bad it has become:
  • My backyard is a white-trash paradise. Toys and patio furniture litter the lawn along with the kids' snack-wrappers, dirty socks, and soaking wet sneakers.
  • My van looks like I mowed the lawn and dumped all of the grass clippings in it! (I'm really not exaggerating!) The grass came from the 8am soccer games on wet grass, and I just haven't had time to clean it out.
  • I still have my Halloween decorations up and Halloween was almost a week ago!
  • My toilets are disgusting! Need I say more?
  • My living room carpet has lovely shades of blue, purple, pink and brown from various Halloween candies.

As you can see, I have a lot of work ahead of me today and for the rest of the week! What does your house look like, and do you have any dirty little secrets?
