Getting Ready

Today everyone seems to be getting ready for the Holidays. John, my darling husband, is living up to his moto of saving the world one tree at a time and has volunteered to get a Christmas tree for our little town. He also volunteered me to make the ornaments for the tree out of gourds. Fine until you see the tree that had to be lifted up with the skid steer, the bucket truck and 5 local Lions Club Members.

I am posting holiday gourds and thinking about how I need to get the house ready for Thanksgiving, but blogging and taking pictures of the town's new tree instead. It's not last minute yet, so I have plenty of time.

Put on the Breaks!

Whoa! Ok, I had another post in mind for today, because I went to a new gourd farm yesterday, but I'm so PO'd about DWTS that I want to speak my mind so I can go on with my life. WTH? WTF? Brandy might not be the perfect Madonna figure for; "The meek shall inherit the Earth", but the woman is a beautiful dancer and this is a dancing competition where we as housewives get to sit at home and dream about being the one's doing the complicated steps. And let me remind you; dancing with the STARS! I got pregnant before I was married too. I did manage to wait until I hit the ripe age of 20, but where is the STAR part of being a teen mom? I like Bristol. I was rooting for her for many weeks, but I think she has a little bit of an attitude and I would rather see a real competition. If you want to root for the underdog and take your rally caps off then do it for Kyle. What a personality that is still down to earth and to move his little sausage shape like that takes as much work as Bristol has put into it. I liked the show. I liked to be able to sit down and watch something that wasn't about sex and solving a murder, rape crime. But now it is just like any other reality tv show, and it took us back to the bummer that is reality.

And, by the way; GO TINA FAY!
oh and my own personal quote; "There is a special place in hell for women that support women only because they are women. Think for yourselves." Jennifer Goode

A Handcrafted Christmas is coming your way!

I am so excited for this upcoming show. It is next Sunday, November 21st and it is in Maryville, Mo. That is quite a ways from me but I love an adventure. It is a college town and a bunch of the KC Etsy peeps will be there. It is completely hand made and it is in an airplane hanger! How Cool is that!?! As the owner of Cripple Creek Says; "Check it Out!" http://www.holidayhuntmaryville.blogspot.com/

Here is how the costumes turned out. One little bumble bee and one designer lady bug. Caitlyn was feeling like the Halloween Scrooge so we made her a costume to go out with Audrie, then she called Katie who dressed up like a Prom Queen and we made our rounds. I have put all the candy in a bowl and hidden it in John's garage/office so he will eat it and I have to think about it before I go out there and get in the bowl. This was after I ate kit kat's on the way to school.
