Yes my dear friends, today is Wacky Tacky Wednesday at the kid's school, so I stood by and watched my beloved beautiful children go to school looking like this.....
I had absolutely no control over what they wore today and as much as it made me cringe in a way, I had to laugh in another because the looks on their faces and the excitement as they threw their ridiculous outfits together, were just precious.
I guess for Nicholas it wasn't really that much of a difference, see my son has this habit of not really paying attention to what he's doing and ends up putting his jeans on backwards. I shouldn't tell you about this but I will anyway, just because..... *snicker*
We were at Walmart a few weeks ago and he told me he needed to use the bathroom, so off we go, I take him into the stall and pull his pants down only to realize they were on BACKWARDS. OH.MY.WORD.....how embarassing. I can't believe I didn't even notice, you may think I'm this horrible mother who doesn't pay attention but I truly, honestly, did NOT see it. I did make him fix the pants and put them on the right way before we left the stall LOL
I just love this girls hair, I mean really love it, look at that color and the curls?
It's been a crazy few days, remember I told you they were removing all the fences? Or wait, maybe I didn't mention that, I may have just talked about the house painting, now that I think about it. Ok well come in and sit with me, let me explain to you how the fencing on this base worked, because it's so ridiculous you will surely leave here shaking your head in confusion.
When we first got a house on base we were told right away that there were NO fences....ok let me rephrase that. There were back yard fences on some houses and NONE on others and we informed the Housing Office that we had dogs and needed a house with a fenced in yard. We were then told "Ok, that's no problem, we will put in a work order to have one put up in your yard BUT you do have to pay $20 a month for it". HUH???? Excuse me but WHAT?
You may remember at the time we even considered not putting one up and just taking the dogs out on a leash, but that would get annoying really fast and then I couldn't let them run around out there and having a corner house, I wouldn't feel safe leaving the kids out back to play either. So we put it up and we paid the monthly feel, begrudgingly, but we paid.
Well finally, they have decided to take down all the fences and put up new ones that we do NOT have to pay a monthly fee for. Thank You Lord. But for the past week, we've had NO fence so we're back to doing the leash thing and then there's all these loose dogs running around and it's just a huge confusion...so right now I don't have a backyard, it's a mixture of poles and fence and workers and trucks.
But enough babbling about that....let me show you our seedlings? Remember the ones we planted on Saturday? Well look how cute they already are.
Those are the kids....because mine, well...nothing yet. I told you I just don't have a Green Thumb, I can't even get the seedlings to grow LOL
So while all this is going on, I have a new obsession which I just have to share with you. I blame it all on Lucy and Alicia and a couple of others that I visit.
It's all about the ripple, oh yes....the wonderful ripple which gave me nightmares the first time I thought of even attempting this. The thought of decreases and increases and whatnot made me sick to my stomach, but I persevered and finally figured it out and now....well now....
It's all I can do NOT to indulge in the ripple action....all day long. Right now I'm making a little afghan only about 40 inches wide but my next project will be a big one for my bed.
So there you have it, that's what's going on on my side of the world. What about you? Anything interesting, any wacky days around there?
