animals of the stuffed kind

I feel sure I have expressed my disdain for stuffed animals before
well its not disdain, for the animals themselves
I mean who does not "like" a soft cuddly stuffed animal
its more .... they irritate me because it really is as if they multiply
they develop little personalities and I can't give them away
they each have a reason to stay in the playroom
from a vacation
from a grandparent
from a special event
was a special gift
Tuesday Chloe and I went to the Summer Movie Camp
and afterwards we walked thru the mall
store after store Chloe saw an animal of the stuffed kind
that she claims she must have for her birthday
well I like to get her things she asks least a few...even if I don't think she needs them
yes......just because she wants them
It's not that I mind getting a few more animals of the stuffed kind
if and only if
we must lessen our collection

Me: Chloe.....if you want to get some new stuffed animals for your birthday you need to go to the playroom and make mommy a pile she can donate....ok?
Chloe: ok...I will do that mommy
(Chloe runs to playroom) Chloe: Mooooooooooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmm.....come here....and see my pile
Me: Pile ??? think you can part with one tiny Curious George ( mind you she has 7 more ... all wearing different outfits) and one little chihuahua (not even hers anyway) and one horse ( which we printed off the computer and made from a not really a stuffed animal at all)

Chloe: Yea...that's all mom.....cause the rest are special

How can I say no to that......move over Goofy....Boo....Curious George...Chip and Dale...snake....bear.....Simon....frog.......there are some new animals of the stuffed kind....heading your way......soon.

Ramblings of Me on this here Thursday

That is the single most embarrassing thing I have had ( one was holding me down with my eyes facing the tv) to watch....Kasey......dear.......WHAT were you thinking ??? huh????

I ordered THIS last night....I always love a good science experiment type activity and it's good for Chloe to take part in a variety of activities makes for a nice well rounded chap...I will let you know how it goes. One thing for sure....we should have plenty of opportunities Mr. Sun is most definitely making himself known.

I am finally reading this book......very good....makes me go hmmmm....a lot....that IS good.

My mom and I are considering opening up a booth at a new antique mall in's driving me crazy...I step toward the ledge ( more business not such a good idea).....then I talk myself down ( a booth would be a lovely thing to do)......I am so torn. I truly am spread so thin now.....what with my has the time. But, I really want we'll see.

What does a frog say when he takes his books back to the library? can thank Chloe for that lil funny.

My hubs got his JOB back......hopefully this means good things are happening in the economy....maybe? Anyway....we are so thankful and happy....Yippee !!!!!!!!!

Do you read this blog.......if not...DO. Great photos...such a lovely creative mind....especially the writings....I simply LOVE the way she writes !!!

rain checks

A couple of weeks ago
we (the kindergarten class) had a field trip to Tweetise to visit the Letterland characters
We all dressed for warm weather....sure there was the chance of showers
but that is everyday this time of year
so no worries.....right
It was 38 degrees up on that mountain.....38 chilly degrees
and it was raining....pouring...then misting....just nasty
we bundled up the kiddos best we could and soldiered on
after a couple of hours I was done....DONE I tell ya
luckily we had drove our car up and we packed up Chloe and headed home
a week later....much to my surprise we were sent rain
thanks Tweetsie
Sunday we cashed those babies in
A lovely day began with a lovely ride up the mountain on the chairlift

we were on our way to adventure and good times !!!
Oh yea

8 dollars and one bucket of sand later
we were the proud owners of "rare" gems
I would show you the photo but I do not want you trying to break into our
home to make our gems your very own
We rode lots and lots of classic style fair rides.....Garren got completely loopy...dizzy and just plain ole sick from the tilt-a-whirl....oh age...what a cruel cruel thing...he used to ride anything and not miss a beat...Chloe and I were chuckling a little....what a pansy...hehe.
Chloe was an angel all day
so she got to do a little shopping
she wisely chose the pink cowgirl hat
adorable !!!
She wanted the pink gun and holster.....hmmmm....I am just not sure how I feel about play guns
The are so nostalgic...and there is something so endearing about seeing a play gun strapped to the hip of a kid.......bang bang shoot em up......but man....I was we opted for the hat.
and its not a trip to the mountains if we do not get boiled peanuts

ahhh...and a Coke so big Chloe could hardly hold it......another TREAT for being so FAB !!!

rain checks rock !!!!
