I hope the hurricane doesn't hit anyone and just says in teh Atlantic where it belongs. Ughh our country doesn't need another Category 5. I am excited about what is coming up!

Good luck with the hurricane! I'm praying that it passes you by!

I figured your cuteness was so obvious that we didn't have to say anything about it... like a beautiful day at the beach!.... speaking of beaches.... Earl had better not ruin our beach vacation that starts on Saturday!

Do what you can to keep the power on down there Shell!

You have to admit, talking about cow poop trumped your picture. Yes it did.

School sounds to be going great, even if there is an expected pre-school teacher take over.

I totally thought you were a cute kid ( in non creeper way)...lol But my cute kid was being a jerk face so I never got to comment =)

I've been worried about you and that Earl coming your way... Praying it gets downgraded.

You were always adorable in school(and still are!) I always envied you because you were so much more stylish than me!

Z's doing great in K too - they are getting all mature on us, aren't they?!?

How is hubby doing post-op?

Blogger Melissa said...

You were cute in your Kindergarten picture - and it never hurts to compliment someone because it makes them happy and when you make someone happy then it makes you happy... good times all around!

I love that "Bear" thinks his old teacher is going to take over the new teacher's class room. Too bad he is mistaken. Hopefully the new teacher will impress him soon!

I'll definitely stay tuned for the "exciting stuff." Gotta love that!

I want Earl to take the high road and head east....far east. I'm in Virginia Beach & I honestly don't feel like disassembling my yard to prepare for the hurricane. Grad school started this week. The kids go back to school next week. AND, we're supposed to be making one last camping trip to Ocracoke Island, NC this weekend.

Go away, Earl...now! ;)

As to Earl... blow, baby, blow!

And your picture was cute! Way better than mine. My mom used to put a bowl on my head and cut away.

I'm hoping Earl stays away too!!! Even though we are more inland, I really don't want a long, rainy weekend!!! It's like the last hurrah of summer, you know! And I have a beach trip planned for next weekend...so he needs to clear out and move on!

Sorry - I didn't catch your Kindergarten pic...yesterday was a busy day! I'm sure you were quite adorable!!! :)

Really hope Earl steers clear of y'all! I'm on the TX coast and I know the anticipation and anxiety of one of those bad boys headed at you.

Happy PINT!

DooD!!no naked pics of the duct-taped plastic bag?! I'm so disappointed.

Was watching the Today Show coverage of the storm. Thought of you right away. Stock up on water & wine!!

I have a picture of Ward with his foot sticking out of the shower in a cast... at least DH can stand on his!

Fun times!

Even tho you say you aren't being serious about your 'favorites' because we said how stinking cute you were, i know that deep inside you are serious. :) The problem is, something about your blog makes it so it's blocked at my work, so i couldn't comment on the actual blog when i was at work.

August 31, 2010 at 9:50 AM  
Blogger Tiffany said...

Sorry that Hurricane Earl is heading your way and I hope that he doesn't hit landfall up there. I am also glad that he turned away from Florida, at least for now.
That would have been funny if you had taken a photo of dh!! I have this vision of him stumbling out of the shower. Maybe you should give him a sponge bath. lol!

we both posted about Earl today, i however, AT FIRST, hoped for a small amount of action here in South Florida.

Good Luck momma I'll be thinking of you...evacuate to FL. Seems to be in the clear!

I quit twitter.for now. no one EVER talks to me lol i gave up!

My oldest will be starting Kindergarten in a week and she talks about her Young 4's teacher all the time still. I hope she's not too upset when school starts and she meets her new teacher. :p

Ugh I am keeping my fingers crossed for you guys with that hurricane! I was watching it on the news this morning and they were being cautiously optimistic about it staying off at sea a bit. My mom has had to go through all the emergency drills at her hospital just in case!

I am in complete denial that Earl might make his way to NC. He just won't. End of story. Why? Why?

Because I said so.

I LOVE it when the kids say, "I want to watch you blog!!". OK, doesn't happen, but that's between you and me.

You were an adorable kindergartner, and if I didn't mention it I am now. There. I may even go and tweet it, since I'm learning all that tweet stuff this week.

Oh, I missed the Twitter pout...sorry or I would've come to the rescue ;) I thought it was just a well known fact by all that you were a cute kindergartner!

The pic of hubby would've been funny, although I'm sure he wouldn't have thought so!

I sure hope the hurricane ends before it hits the coast...

LOL, just the image is making me laugh (though a picture would have been better. Maybe tomorrow??) You were of course adorable in kindergarten! I am with you on this hurricane business, what is it doing coming up to the Eastern Shore?? Stay far far away!

Hope Earl shrivels up into a light breeze. Since I am in CA I don't think it happens that way- so Hope Earls just goes away...far far away. AHH, Now I am picturing your hubby naked. Ooops. You were an ADORABLE kindergardener and now a HOT Momma!

I have to help my hubby shower. The shoulder that was operated on is his dominate side. He is getting better at stuff. But those first few days were hard. I blogged about his surgery and showed pictures of his shoulder and what he looked like when I brought him home. He knew I was going to do it, but he didn't remember that I took his picture.

If only the kiddos requested for us to blog all the time.
