* fall fun …

Posted on November 3rd, 2009 by melinda in Another day in the life of me.


Last weekend we had our fall festival down at the church house.  We had a good time, lots of people came and the weather was beautiful.  Fun was had by all … big kids and little kids. 


Professional turkey bowling with one of my favorite turkeys,  Brandon (with his glasses that he stole from buzz light year).  


I’m begining to think he and Chrisi are twins who were seperated at birth … I’m not sure which one of them likes dirt less or has the better, more expensive taste in clothing … it’s to close to call.


an apple a day …


keeps the monsters away (maybe Donna should’ve eaten an apple or 2)!


poppity …




POP!    I was in charge of the popcorn cramming your mouth eating contest.  Who’s idea was it to let the fat girl be in charge of the food game?


I think it was my child’s idea … she organized all of the games.  She knows her mama!


Her logic may have been … if my mama has to show people how to run, hop, skip or jump with an apple between their thighs we may be in trouble, not to mention there is really no need to punish any apples.


And the whole little bitty baby punkin’ under the chin while runnin’ thing … not for mama either.  That is a visual we just don’t need.  Not now, not ever.


And we all know I am not allowed to drive a tractor for any reason, so the hay ride wasn’t a mama option either.  I really want to drive a tractor, I promise I will not forget that you have to push the clutch and the break at the same time to make it stop ever again.  I’m a quick learner.


Fine!  I’ll stick with the popcorn.  Chase seems to be doing a pretty good job of gulping his up.  One bag for the kiddo’s … one bag for mama.  What?  it was good popcorn, geez!
