Awesome song....

This is a song that is by a friend of mine. It is amazing. Enterprise people, you know this one--Sam Arnold.

Please listen--but fair warning, it will probably make you cry.

Quick updates

So yes, we are now proud owners of a brand new partially eaten library book!! Hurray!! And it only cost $21.00! How fun! **yes, very sarcastic!** I did just end up taking it in and explaining the situation. They were nice about it but seemed to be absolutely flabbergasted that she actually ate it! Oh, well, that's my girl! =)

Also, I was asked to tell what was in our 72 hour kit meal bags. Well, I didn't want to list them all here so I am going to link you to the website that I got the idea from. So, click here if you are interested in looking at it. We did do a few minor changes to what they suggested but basically just followed their plan. Just arrow down a bit and you will see the day by day outline.

72 hour kits

We've been working on our 72 hour kits for the past year and I think we are finally done. Yesterday we sat down and went through the food portion of our kit and now I am pleased to say that we can now all eat for three days in an emergency!! YEA!!!

This was an idea that I found online. You have three labelled bags for each member of your family (one for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for each day). So 9 bags for each member with their designated meals for each day. Pretty cool huh!

What to do.....

If your child rips the page of a library book and then proceeds to EAT said ripped library page, do you have to actually tell the librarian and show them or can you just walk in with money and pay for the book so you don't have to get the "are you kidding me, are you really sad enough parents that you'll let your child eat library books??" look? (Even if you do deserve the look...)

No seriously, please tell me. I am so embarrassed and really want to know!!! And no, we will not be checking out anymore library books until she understands fully and clearly that books are NOT for eating!!!!

Look familiar....

"CHEESE!" (yes, she was very proud of herself...)

Yep, she did it again. This time, it wasn't washable marker though and this time it was Daddy who failed to see it happening while Mommy was at long does it take for permanent marker to wash out?? And does it come out of microfiber sofas???

Okay, so this was the only photo that was actually taken on Halloween night. I know, pathetic of me. This photo was actually taken by our landlord. It's her husband and two of their three kids that are in the photo with us.

It was such a fun night. Zaylee had a blast knocking on doors and saying "treat" to everyone that answered. We tried to get her to say trick-or-treat but for some reason treat was all she could get out! =) She tried to end with "Happy Halloween!" But it ended up more like "Happy Do Do." (Don't know where that one came from!!) Over all it was really fun night! Zaylee even had a chance to use her "Care Bear Stare!" on a barking dog. The owners got a kick out of that one!

Hope you all had a great one as well!
