10 Things You Might Not Know About Me

In No Particular Order------

#10 I am addicted to "The Biggest Loser." I don't even mind when they cry...and sometimes I actually cry along with them..YUCK

#9 I hate to wear socks with my tennis shoes. Partly because I am too lazy to put on socks...OK OK completely because I am too lazy to put on socks....(I know that is some serious laziness)

#8 I could live on rice krispy treats, jellybeans, and diet Dr. Pepper.

#7 I am the biggest procrastinator you will ever meet. I generally cannot get anything done unless I am under a time crunch.

#6 I secretly would like to take some photography classes and then open my own photography and scrapbooking business.

#5 Because of the movie "Poltergeist", I still cannot go to bed with any closets open. I have to check my kids bedroom closets to make sure they are closed before I can go to bed.

#4 I have broken my toe, my leg, my finger, my wrist, and my collarbone and I have had two sets of stitches

#3 My nickname growing up was Lou Lou Brown.

#2 When my kids are grown I want to sell my house and live out of an RV while traveling around the U.S. and Canada.

#1 I love to play with my kids eyelashes...i know that's really weird...they are just so soft! (they hate it by the way).

It was homecoming this weekend at our Alma mater (Oklahoma). We took the entire family down to Norman to participate in the festivities. We went to the Homecoming Parade, had a great time with friends and family, and watched some great football! Here are a few pictures of the kids sporting the crimson and cream. BOOMER SOONER!

The one in which HE shaves his legs...

and other crazy happenings at my house this week!

My #4 (Brian) apparently needs to spend a little more time watching his daddy shave, and a little less time with his mommy.....because every time he is in the shower he hikes his little leg onto the shower wall to "shabe his wegs" with his razor.

Kate has many ambitions in life these days...
*Her greatest??----to stand on the dishwasher door...
Seriously...she can hear the door open from two rooms away and comes running to climb onto the door......

My next post may be....."The one in which I buy a new dishwasher door"

*Another ambition-----to see how many times she can push the power button on the cable box and make her brothers go crazy

*Thirdly-----she LOVES to see how fast she can unroll the T.P. before I catch have never seen a girl more frantic to get toilet paper off a roll ;)

*and last ----(although not really last---but the last I will report on--You're welcome ;)
She can climb out of her crib...If you remember this know she has been a climber her whole life-- She has been able to climb UP the slides at the park for a couple of months now.....I mean seriously steep slides....
Let me tell you the first time I found that out I had to scurry my little buns up the slide too....and it's a lot harder than it looks---but you don't want your 10 month old/1 year old wandering around at the top!!!!!

.....Any ideas on how to keep her in the crib???


On to my #2...Nicky....the poor guy inherited my scatterbrain....I can't tell you how many times I have had to take something up to him at school this year.....

This morning he was going crazy because he couldn't find his library book---the library book with the POLAR BEAR on the cover...He swore up and down he had left it on the dining room table.....I saw His papers on the table, and then threw them figuring I threw away the book with them, I went through the trash looking for his book......NO BOOK! We looked all over the house for 20 minutes...he blamed every sibling for losing/stealing his book.....then we found his bed.....y/k right where he left it last night after reading...:)----and there was no POLAR BEAR..........there was a CAMEL on the cover! LOL

The boys get a folder home every Monday with the lasts weeks papers and newsletters from the PTO and teachers etc..... It's a lot of stuff.....For the last 2 years I have gotten #1s (Alex's) folder was so perfect and neat...separated into sections....all nice and neat......Nick's papers keep coming home all stuffed in the folder....half of the papers sticking out the top and sides and totally crinkled up and just a complete mess.....Finally, I asked him who the helper was that was putting the papers in his folder like that (I assumed because Alex's was so neat, that there were parent helpers or some other adult that came up and put the papers in)----he said "I do it"....Then I asked Alex who does his....he said "I do, and always have".......AHEM.....


Finally....#3(Nathan)--- 5 days IN A ROW now, his teacher has reported on an injury (very minor) he had gotten on the playground....I think he is going for some kind of record.... :)

Well...those are just some of the crazy happenings at my house this week....How is your week??
