And Finally, Embarassing Moment Caused by Children #457: Today we were in the drive through and the man in the window was quite large. From the back seat I hear, "That's a big guy!" I just ignore it, no reaction on my face, and in my head I start praying that it stops at that. Then, unfortunately, since I didn't seem to hear her the first time her volumn level increases and she says, "Biiiiiig guy, a biiiiiiig guy! TOOOO big!!....". Well, I have been wanting a healthier lifestyle and I will never go through that drive through again.
EDITED: Her blog has been made private so I'm removing her link.

No more gloomy here, I just heard from the director at the preschool where I want Kendall to go and they have spaces available in her age group for next semester (and only her age group). I'm so excited, we can walk and ride bikes to this preschool so it will be fantastic. The only catch is that they require their 3 year olds to be potty trained but we have until September so I think that we can have that done in 8 months!
This morning we had to drop off a movie at the library. Our town is pretty small and our library is very small so there aren't many people there usually. Today as I pulled into the parking lot I noticed that it was pretty crowded. I opened the door for Kendall, she put one foot in and yelled at the top of her lungs, "HI EVERYBODY!!!!". I tried to 'shhh' her but I was laughing too hard, luckily everyone thought it was cute. Today we checked out a book and movie about "Cinda-winda" commonly known as Cinderella.

Nathan, thought you might be interested in this statistic from the
bottom of the message: On average, 475 sheets of paper per year could
be saved if an office worker reduced his margins from the default setting of
1 in to 0.50 in.
I also heard about another statistic,
published in the Progress Report on S family Spending: On average, a
scrap-booker can save $150 per year in fancy paper by reducing
0.01 in and placing only one trinket/fastener within each 3-in radius.
Wow, Brian. You really know your stuff! I could tell by your use of the
phrases "fancy paper" and "trinket/fastener". Have you considered getting into a
side business with your wife? Maybe whipping out a few greeting cards in your
You might call it "whipping out a few greeting cards" - I prefer to call it
"scrap night with the guys." Nathan, you gonna be at Archiver's tomorrow
He is SO there. He'll be the one wearing the "craft apron".
At this point I could stand it no longer and had to chime in:
You think Brian is joking but I saw him tonight making an Excel spreadsheet
that had all the layouts he wanted to make. There were columns for paper type,
“embellies” (embellishments), and adorable quotes to include on the page. He
packed up the rolling tote bin that he picked up at Michael's tonight.
I knew it. This weekend Nathan kept getting into my supplies. He said he was
just "organizing" but later I saw some brads fall out of his pants as he walked
by. I think I saw some glitter in his hair too. Nathan's new "laptop bag" sure
seems to have a lot of pockets..... p.s. While reading this, be sure to
insert "air quotes" as needed.

I've done two more. I'm actually making a mini book with all the pumpkin patch pictures but I created a page for the scrapbook too.

It turned out to be a fairly early night. The girls left by midnight but I got a few pages done. We had a lot of fun and we may have sore abs tomorrow from laughing. Here is what I did, the lighting is bad since it is so late so I don't know if the pictures will be good. I think that I'll keep the momentum going and work more tomorrow night. I have more pages of Kate that I want to do. Actually, I had planned on making two other pages tonight, I ordered pictures and went to Wal-Mart to pick them up along with a few snacks for the night and forgot to get the pictures!! Bummer. For the "Strinkler" page I used what I had written in my blog post from the day. This is a great resource to have when I want to remember everything from a specific day.
