It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
We have our tree up with lights but no ornaments just yet. I've decided since we have a kitten this year that no glass ornaments, ribbons or "regular" ornaments will be going on the tree. I put the Christmas tree in the Family room this year in a corner, so if it falls it has 2 walls to lean up against. Putting it up was an adventure. Kiki was trying to eat it and climbing up in it. She would bat at my hands anytime I tried working on the tree. Greg took the kids to Home Depot with him so I could work on the tree. When he called home I told him, "Next year you can leave the kids and take the cat."
Anyway, we are making ornaments this year. I put the kids' favorite lights on the tree (colored). And I can see that this tree will be special already. I made my star to put on top of the tree with Scrapbooking paper. I wonder if this will become a tradition?
Speaking of TRADITIONS...
Many of you know that when the kids were 2 years old I wrote HO HO HO on their "sweet cheeks" and posed them for a picture. I had seen someone else do this with their triplets on a Christmas card and I just had to do it. So I knew I couldn't wait until the next year because they would be too old to do that. So I did it. It was precious.
Well the next year comes....And Ashley says, "Mommy are you going to hide lollypops in the tree and write letters on our buckys again?"
I can't believe she remembered that! We didn't!
The next year comes...Aussie says, "Are you going to write H-O-H-O-H-O on our heineys?"
Again I explain they are too old and We don't do it!
This year...Is this a 5 year old thing? They like to moon us! Where did they get this from? We don't do it! They ask this year if we can write ho ho ho on them. Since they were just teasing Daddy and NO pictures were to be taken and it was bath night, I grab a Crayola Washable marker and I do it. LOL! This is funny! NOT...It wasn't a Crayola Washable Marker! So they have faint ho's on their heineys.
I do think it is funny that every year they bring it up and we explained they were too old for that and they continue to bring it up. Greg said when they are in College we are going to get a picture of the 3 of them with H-A H-A H-A sent to us.
The moral of this story is that kids remember things even at TWO years old!
Well I must make dinner, I've played on the computer long enough.
Oh I meant to say 2 other things, I guess I'll have to get on later tonight.

We had a nice dinner at a friends house. There was SO MUCH food. Usually I don't "over"eat on Thanksgiving because it typically isn't my favorite foods. But I sure did today. I overdid it! It was so delicious! And now it is only 8:00 and I am tired!
Actually- I got excited to watch a movie with my family. We have had the movie Cars for a year and I have never seen it. The kids have seen it, but I never have. So I was really getting into it and then the kids wanted to play and get in the way of the movie. So I turned it off for them to make their own movie.
So is anyone getting out in the hustle and bustle to go shopping tomorrow?

How do you decide who to marry?
I think its Caroline
How did you choose Caroline?
Because I don't remember the other girl's name
Is it Page?
I will marry Page IF she's not too big
What is the right age to get married?
I can't get married until I'm a grown up, but I really want to do it today.
How can a stranger tell if 2 people are married?
Because they live at the same house- but if they were a visitor there then I would know.
What would you do on a 1st date if it was yucky?
I would just go to another place or to another date. I want to have my 1st date when I'm 9.
When is it ok to kiss someone?
all the time
Is it better to be single or married?
Married- because Mom's and Dad's are important
How would the world be different if people didn't get married?
I think everyone would be mad if we couldn't get married.

So what does this picture look like to you?
Apparantly to 5 year olds this is a RECIPE to make the picture up in the left hand corner. (hey atleast they are reading left to right)
The kids wanted to make me birthday presents today since they didn't have any to give me. This time the cake wasn't quite as successful as last time. I went downstairs to find a bowl of flour with milk, a WHOLE apple, grapes, scoops of peanut butter, a slice of cheese, a scoop of shortening (for the pie), chocolate and who knows what other stuff all mixed together!
My reaction this time was more like "OH MY!"
Mason said, "It was Ashley's idea to add the candy bar." Then he brings me this peice of paper and said we followed this recipe. LOL!!!
I had to dump it, but how can you not smile at them trying to read a RECIPE?

After school- the kids played outside. They loved riding their bikes. Mason has really gotten the hang of riding his bike and is going really fast. Ashley just learned a few days ago and she is doing great! Aussie has been a pro for awhile. Once we get the tires fixed on their bikes, I bet we could take off the training wheels pretty soon.
Ashley helped me cut the flowers down. They were all dying due to the cold weather. Austin helped too. But he scared me so much with the shears that I didn't dare take his picture. Ashley HAD to do them all! I'm glad she likes gardening. It is not something I enjoy. But today the weather was just so wonderful I didn't mind being out there.
Tomorrow should be a fun day- I hope!

I like this picture even though it is blurry!.
Trick or treating was fun. We went to our friend's neighborhood. Here the kids are with some of their friends. I loved watching them run from one house to the next. Ashley was in her little princess shoes. She told us later that they were hurting her feet. When we got home she had blisters all over her toes. Poor little girl!! Aussie was an indian again and Mason changed his costume to Chef Mason. The boys got tired rather quickly and told us they wanted to go home. The last 4 houses...Austin just said he was done and didn't want to go up to them. So Greg went back to get the car and came and picked us up.
