We have a Brownie in our house now. She is so excited about selling cookies. Which is good becasue I voluntered to be Cookie Coordinator or as Josh calls it Cookie Nazi. I am basically in charge of her troops cookie sells. All up to little ole me. She is so excited to start getting patches and involved. We have meetings 2 times a month and she loves it. She loves earning her money for dues and paying her own way. I can hardly beleive she is old enough to be a Brownie.

And extra special thianks to those her bought from her fall product sell. She will be getting her first patch soon and her little froggy. I think I am more excited about it than she is.

Halloween a little bit late

We had a really good Halloween. The kiddos dressed up as Tinkerbell and Capt. Hook. They loved their costumes (Thanks MeMaw)!! We have more candy that any one family should ever have. I finally gave up after a week of them sneeking it and last Friday after school Josh dumped it all on the cabinet and said go for it. They were SO crazy!!! But we let them stay up a little late and put them to bed right before the sugar high went DOWN. So they went down easily and haven't asked for candy since. Only one problem, we still have a pumkin full of candy. They only made it throuigh half the candy. I think it might just have to disappear this weekend. I don't think they would even notice.

scooby scooby DOO!!!

We went to a dog show a few weeks ago and the reason that Jacob and Emily were SO excited to go was to see Scooby Doo and the gangf with the mystery machine. Well we went and the first thing we did was run over to the them. Only once we got there Jacob was to scared to take his picture with the crew, which I don't blame him. They are just a little bit scary. Emily did not care, she was just disapointed that Scooby Doo was a doll and not a real dog. She still thinks cartoons are real people. She understands that they are just pretending, but she seems to beleive they are real people, that just look a bit different than we do. She even wore her Scooby Doo shirt to have her picture made.

Here is a little bit of Jacob's Art. It seems he enjoys the art of photography, especailly if I am not looking. These are a few of my favorites. I especially like the cat food bowl and the iron.
