Today the schools started an hour late (trust me, they would have been CLOSED in Texas!) and Ben had to start shoveling the driveway at 8:00. He was finished right when it was time to go at 8:40. That is a super work-out!
Last week Cole was in his first play....Colorado: A Land Through Time. He was Francisco Coronado and he did really well. Check it out at Feeling Froggy!

P.S. I asked the kids to write their Christmas wish lists and my favorite thing was on Jacob's list...he asked for super powers. When I asked him which one he said he didn't care, he would take any! Then Melissa told him if he got the flying super power he would have to take her for a flight, he looked at her and very seriously said, "Then I would need super strength." My boy isn't going to get too many dates with that kind of honesty!!

Apparently I have been "tagged" by my dorkwad, weirdo brother who has nothing better to do at work than play on the computer. Are my tax dollars funding your job? I am willing to do this for him, cause I love him soooo dang much.
Here are the rules:
- Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
- Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself.
- Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
- Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
Here are the 7 random and/or weird facts about myself (if I can keep it that short!)
- I am the smartest one of all 3 of my siblings.
- I am the best looking of all 3 of my siblings.
- I am the coolest, most popular of all 3 of my siblings.
- I am the most liked of all 3 of my siblings.
- I am the best cook of all 3 of my siblings.
- I am the nicest of all 3 of my siblings.
- I am the funniest of all 3 of my siblings.
Gosh, I could keep going for hours, but I guess I will stop with those 7. If you disagree with these FACTS about myself (you decide whether or not they are random or weird) then you will just have to take it up with ME….I am also the best fighter of all my siblings.
I don't think I can tag 7 people, because the people I know have all already been tagged…I don't know that many people in Blogger World! (I also work harder than all of my siblings).
And in case you don't understand….I do mean all 3 of my brothers, but Mainly just my older brother!

"We are thrilled to bring PSYCH back for a third season," said Wachtel. "The series has been a critical and ratings sensation since it premiered last summer and continues to gain new viewers and grow its fan-base."
PSYCH has been a ratings success since its debut in the summer of 2006, becoming last year's #1 new show in all of cable. The ratings accomplishments have continued through this summer. Along with its Friday night companion series MONK, PSYCH led USA to win the summer on Friday nights in P25-54 and P18-49. PSYCH is currently averaging 4.6 million total viewers, 2.3 million in P25-54 and 2.1 million in P18-49, with a 3.4 household coverage rating in the first half of the show's second season. PSYCH has been the #1 series on cable in its timeslot for the summer, beating its competition by 126% in P18-49 and 120% in P25-54 as well. PSYCH made USA the #2 network in all of television second only to ABC during its time slot.
I have been enjoying using the scrapblog feature, so I decided to use some photos I have had for a while. This scrapblog is from Blake's 8th birthday party....last April! I know, I know....that was a long time ago, but you can still enjoy the photos! We had a lot of fun at Sonic in Tyler and ate some good cake thanks to Windy!

Note to Michael: My boys still button their shirts all the way to the top because that is how they like it! I try to unbutton the top button, but they will not have anything to do with that!

On another note, we currently have a couple who wants to put a contract on our house. We have not shown our house in 2 weeks, so this came as a surprise to us. Apparently, this couple looked at our house when we had it For Sale By Owner. (We only showed it to two couples that week, and now one of them has come back and said they want it. We are excited to get the paperwork and move forward with this part of our summer!
Ben is still enjoying umpiring baseball games, and last night he umpired 2 tournament games in Kilgore. We went and watched the 2nd game. It was between Carthage and Jacksonville....Carthage won 28-2. That is a slaughter! Today Ben is playing in a softball tournament in Longview and we will be heading over there to watch that. I am really enjoying relaxing, watching some baseball and just being home with my family!!! (also, Cole would like for you to continue to read his blog....he checks regularly for comments and doesn't think people read his posts!!)

I really just posted this because I thought it would be a good video to watch in the summertime....and I wanted to see how many people actually read my blog posts and would comment on the barely clad men playing volleyball in the video. This is definitely when Tom was a lot younger and not into "witchcraft"!! LOL Maybe you will enjoy watching, and maybe you won't. (Melissa, you need to find something better to post for me on my birthday!! You have less than a week!)

Annalisa is ready for us to move, and she can't wait to start school. However, we found out that where the cut-off date for starting school in Texas is Sept. 1, in Missouri it is Aug. 1....not much help for her there. During the baseball season, Annalisa could not go to a game without wearing her baseball uniform! She was convinced the boys loved it, and she also got a free soda after the game if she was in a uniform! I haven't raised a dummy! In this photo she is being the "batgirl" for the Blue Jays. She loved being in the dugout with all of the guys!
Mostly, I am enjoying sleeping late and not listening to kids that I didn't give birth to (and therefore can't spank) disrespect me all day long and fight each other.
I love being at home with my own three kids and Benny!! I had a great week last week with just Ben because the kids went to Dad and Lynn's house and had a blast. I don't think they were ready to come home to me!!! I am glad they love their grandparents and can spend time with them. Soon, they will go to Jim and Ruby's for vacation bible school! They love that!
