Language Arts

I came across this quiz at Shannon's. Here is my score, as I curtsy (LOL):

Your Language Arts Grade: 100%

Way to go! You know not to trust the MS Grammar Check and you know "no" from "know." Now, go forth and spread the good word (or at least, the proper use of apostrophes).

Are You Gooder at Grammar?

At the dentist

Things you don't want to hear your dentist say as he's working on reconstructing a tooth that chipped:

"Oh, that's not good."

"I messed that up. My fault."

And yet I survived! And have had no pain! I'll probably have to have a crown or root canal and some gum surgery since the gum grew over the tooth until I could get to the dentist. But he said I could wait until January, unless I have any difficulties.

Brother to Brother

My sister Wendie and her husband Ben have been teaching their eldest son Benjamin the virtue of looking out for his younger brother, Matthew. Benny is 4 and Matty is almost 2.
"Brothers stick together. Look out for your brother. He's younger than you are and that is what older brothers do. He needs you."
"Ok, Mommy!" Benny said with enthusiasm.
Today, Benny came into the kitchen and said, "Matty needs a tissue."
"Ok, I'll get him one" Wendie said.
Smiling proudly, Benny shows he is learning the important brotherly lesson his parents are trying to teach him.
"No, I'm helping him. Here it is!" There on Benny's index finger is Matty's boogie which he had picked from his brother's nose.

Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat was held last night, and I went over to Scott and Vickie's to hand out candy while Vickie took the boys out trick-or-treating. Scott was working (second shift) - since trick-or-treat was changed from the Thursday before Halloween to Halloween night, Scott wasn't able to be there (his days off are Wednesdays and Thursdays). Here are some pictures of Andrew, Austin, and their cousins Mikey and Noah. They each got a nice haul of candy!

When I receive pictures of my nephews in their costumes (hint, hint), I'll post those pictures!

I love Fall!

Fall is my favorite season, and I also love to decorate for Fall. Here are some pictures of how I decorated inside and outside my home:

I love to have fall-scented candles burning in my home, like cinnamon, apple pie, pumpkin, etc. It just makes such a nice, warm welcome.
