Crafty or Ambitious, or Just Plain Crazy?

Today I was feeling creative - or something. I decided that I needed to walk on my treadmill (which I try to do every day anyway), and then take a quick shower, since I had to watch my girlfriend's daughter for a while. When I got out, I thought to myself "I bet I could do an ok job on curling my hair". I mean, it wouldn't look like it did when Jenica did my hair last week for the red carpet gala, but I can try, right?

I am actually pleased with the result, so I thought I'd share....

So after being mostly satisfied with my hair-do attempt, I decided to make some treats for Patrick's class. I got the idea from my "Family Fun" magazine, that my dear sister-in-law Regan gave me. This was a lot of fun, but the icing was a little frustrating. If you can't figure out how to do it, just email me. Cheap and fun craft!

Aren't these cute????!!!

Did I Teach Him That?????!!!

Taking a page from my friend Lori's blog, I ask myself, "Did I teach him that?"

Last night, my boys were playing Battleship against their dad, and all three of them got to play against Doane. While waiting for his turn, Patrick decided to "slip" on his chair, and managed to produce this dilemma.....

I can't figure out how you can "slip" and manage to get yourself stuck into the chair like this. We tried getting him out going forward and going backward, but there's simply no way we could get him out. He screamed bloody murder when we were trying to pull him out from behind, because his head was getting smashed. He kept screaming to "break the chair, just break it!!!" So he spent about 10 minutes looking like this, while Doane figured out how to get him out.

Alas, after all the work Doane has done to sand and re-paint our chairs, he had to do this to the chair to get Patrick out. Boy, was Doane an UNHAPPY man last night!

Luckily, Doane didn't actually have to break it. He just had to take some screws out, which (luckily) weren't glued in. So now he just has to put it back together, and we'll have our chair back.....doh!

Rimmel London's Glam'eyes!

I'd just like to give a shout-out and thanx to my friend Jenica for recommending this great mascara! She blogged about mascara a while back, and asked for recommendations for herself, and then found this one.

While shopping at the store the other day, I headed to the cosmetic aisle, as I was running out of my current mascara. I thought, "Hey, why don't I call Jenica and ask her what the one was called that she raved about so much?" So I did, and of course she didn't answer her phone. Luckily, by the time she called back, I was only on the OTHER side of the store, instead of having left already. So I turned my cart around and headed across the store, to pick up my new mascara.

LOVE IT! It works great, and I'm happy with the results. I still like my old one, Maybelline's Sky High Curves, but Rimmel's Glam'eyes is almost a dollar cheaper, and you get a little more ounces per penny, so it's worth it! But here's a picture of my second favorite anyway, just so you know....

And here's a little bio about it....

Halloween 2008

So we are slacker parents, and didn't take any pictures of our kids this year. I guess we figured since they're wearing the same costumes as last year, we didn't need an updated pic. Oops! But we did take one of me before I headed off to work, and some of Doane's cool maze he built in our front yard. Enjoy!

I tried to upload the video of Doane's maze, but couldn't figure out how to do it. So the pictures will just have to suffice. The following is a turn by turn of what you see in our maze. Doane worked really hard to put it together, and it's pretty cool for being thrown together on Halloween, if I do say so myself - and I DID!

In case I forgot to mention it, there was a costume contest at work. Apparently they were supposed to print the pictures out of those who dressed up, and we were going to vote on the winner - I still don't know who the winner is, dangit! Maybe I'll find out when I go to work tomorrow.....
