It's hard to believe that I have been watching Survivor for a whopping seventeen seasons. I remember the first season it aired I thought it was THE dumbest TV show ever made. Around the 5th or 6th episode however I was hooked and I have been ever since. I just want to know, where do they find these people…seriously? Wouldn’t it be neat if someone we know personally, or just a normal person was a contestant this season? The above website indicated the 18 contestants competing this fall include an Olympic gold medalist, a Gilmore Girls actress, and a professional video game champion. Can’t wait to see the freak show tonight so don’t you dare call me at 7:00. Don’t even think about. I won’t answer, I won’t I won’t I won’t!
I'll be signing up for Survivor Anonymous first thing tomorrow morning.

Well, I'm working on getting some County Fair pictures posted but lately my eyelids just won't stay open too long in the evenings so be patient.
If you are interested in taking the parenting toolbox course, I recommend you click here today. I think the class fills up quickly!
Love one another,

Fall is one of my favorite seasons. It seems like life takes a tiny breather before the whirlwind of the holidays. A favorite fall memory is making these yummy Pumpkin Bars with my mom and then watching Anne of Green Gables. Neither of which I am doing today but it sure would be nice! Enjoy the recipe!
1 ⅔ c. sugar
1 c. vegetable oil
1 (16 oz) can pumpkin
2 c. flour
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 (3oz) pkg. cream cheese, softened
2 c. confectioners’ sugar
¼ c butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1-2 Tbs. milk
1. Heat the oven to 350°.
2. In a mixing bowl beat eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin.
3. Combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt; gradually add to pumpkin mixture and mix well.
4. Pour into an ungreased 13x9 or 15x10 baking pan and bake for 25-30 minutes.
5. Cool completely.
6. To make icing, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, butter and vanilla in a small bowl.
7. Add enough mild to achieve desired consistency.
8. Spread over bars.
Makes 2 dozen
Happy Fall Y'all!

Men step aside! Women like the "fast and furious" too! Just look at these little gals taunting Driver #1 Big Daddy. He better be ready to put the pedal to the metal.
Racecart drives, start your engines!
And their off!
It would appear that Driver #3 Little Miss Octane is taking an early lead as they approach turn one.
Little Miss Octane is heading into the chute...
Yup, Big Daddy's pit crew is on pins and needles...
Ooooweee the drivers are definitely trading paint today. Now let's just play nice ladies and Big Daddy!
Little Miss Lugnut takes the lead, the crowd goes wild!
But Little Miss Lugnut takes a break from burning rubber for some high-fives during the NASCART Bergamini Series Mini 300. It's nice to know that these speed demon's aren't too hasty to "race" past their admirers.
Those carts … err blobs … sure are cruising!
The suspense is killing me!
Who will take it all?
I'm getting dizzy...
Little Miss Octane is cruisin' to victory lane...
I could hear Bid Daddy teaching his future NASCART devotees the "lingo" that went something like this..."The car checked out fine in the dyno, but it might not make any difference with the bear grease on the track. Throw in some dirty air, and all you can do is hope the scuffs and 200 mph tape will help the machine run flat-out.''
Mommy rolling her eyes to Big Daddy after the race: Lord have mercy, don't you think we should at least dress the child in more than a purse on her arm before her next big race?
Happy Monday everybody!

Love one another,
Many of you are in the same season of life that I am – busy: Children to teach, meals to cook, laundry to keep up with, and a house to up-keep. So maybe we should all ask ourselves; do we really have time to be chasing after trivial things to fulfill the flesh? Not really. Let us get our work done first, and let us do a great job in our tasks, and to always joy in the Lord that we have a family to take care of, and a home to keep.
In the meantime, if you were wondering why I haven't responded to emails, answered the phone, posted on the blog, you'll know why.
More thoughts on this later…until then, have a super weekend!
Oh yeah! A post just wouldn't be a post without a picture right?
The girls are dreaming of another camping trip in the "bus". Not sure why they insist on calling the camp trailer a bus but it really is cute!

Our art project yesterday was a paper plate face. The face is supposed to resemble the arteest who created the masterpiece.
We went to Alco to pick out our yarn for the hair. The girls picked out their own colors. And they got to color their own eyes, nose and mouth.
Abby is gluing her "hair" on the plate.

Well hello, beautiful. Where have you been all my life?
Why, yes I think I shall wear you proudly upon my wrinkly, age-spotted hand.
He had the girls birthstones added around my birthstone. The ring is just so pretty! I suppose you can say that it is also a motivator to be a better wife and mother too. I'll get started on that right after staring at my pretty ring a bit longer.
Happy Friday y'all
