November in pics... Part 1

I promise I am going to do better posting. I am feeling a bit of renewed love for blogging, even though I got to the point where I loathed it. I don't like to be on the computer all the time- it bores me. So I am attempting to limit myself a little, so when I DO post I am happy to do it!!

November has been a great month. Not that you could tell with my three whole posts... And one of those was about Halloween!

Livie, my sassy 4 year old, lost her first tooth!!! About a year ago she fell and hit her tooth on the stairs. It was slowly dying since then. So, 2 1/2 months shy of her 5th bday, Liv lost her tooth.

We celebrated Alec's 14th birthday. He had about 1/2 a dozen stinky boys over to spend the nite. We bought NINE pizzas and not a slice was left by morning. He also had a cool cake...

Funny thing is... Alec didn't care. He was like, "So, I do love my mom." That's my boy!!

Kelsea and Karlea turned 12. We miss them very much and wish some people weren't so selfish.

Taj earned a ride in a stretch Hummer for selling 15 boxes of cookie dough! I can't stand these types of fundraisers, but when he came home and said, "I'm going to sell 15 boxes of cookie dough so I can ride in a stretch Hummer!" Who am I to say, "No you aren't." He did all the work himself selling to neighbors and grandparents and uncles... He sold exactly 15! The day before the ride he came down with pink eye. I took him to the Minute Clinic at CVS. She said he needed to be on meds for 24 hours. It was 10am when I got his prescription. The Hummer ride was a 10:30am the next morning. So, even though the dr. wrote a "return to school" note for the 17th, you better believe Taj was there for his Hummer ride at 10:30am on the 16th!! They picked up him and the other winners and took them to lunch at Chick Fil A. Taj said it was the "best day of his life!" I tried to get a good pic, but he was much too excited to actually stand still...
