good that we know are home owners with two paid off vehicles.
good that we have a pet we love.
good that i met some pretty amazing ladies in august.
good that i have great hopes for 2008.
good that WDW is only 5 months away.
and good that i have a best friend that i love with all my heart.

tattle tellers

what is a tattle teller? let's see the definition.

tattle tale: a person who tattles....well lets look at tattle then.

tattle: 1. to disclose the secrets of another, esp. out of spite.
2. to chatter or gossip
3. to disclose by gossiping.

so looks like these people that tattle can not be trusted.
or they tattle because they like to be thought of as the sweet innocent person that they are not.

stop tattling on the others because we know who you are.

Wednesday, November 07, 2007

oh here is some pictures of cookie!

lauren so loves that puppy!

looks like we should have named him flash.....lol

a great weekend

we had a great weekend.
friday night we went shopping for the fixin's for the gumnbo for lauren's birthday party on the 10th. got all the meats and roux.
when we were heading home we stopped by diego's house and let lauren and him play for a while.

saturday was the Fall Fest at lauren's school. it was so much fun for her. There was booths for the kids to win little trinkets and face painting and hay rides. there was also a fish bowl toss. where you toss the ping pong ball in to the fish bowls to win a fish. well she wasted 5 bucks there trying to win the fish...and yes she finally did, not only one but she won two! she was so excited.
later that afternoon we hung at the house and mom came over to see cookie and she brought her dog "Bear". that was the funniest thing i have ever seen a basett hound chasing an australian shepard. too funny. poor cookie slept so good that night he was tired.

sunday woke up EARLY , due to the time change. nice!
headed to church . fred went to a friends house to have some "MAN" time together and watch the SAINTS game. me and lauren went shopping and ate at micky d"S. we played outside and then wayne came by to take lauren for a ride around the fields. i finished mowing the grass and then she and i went to go play on the new hay bails wayne got friday. she loves to play on those bails.
we had a great evening. i made chicken fried steak, mash tators, corn on the cob and milk gravy. yummy!

hope you all had a great weekend.

saturday we welcomed into our home "cookie".
he is a basset hound. lemon and white.
He was 8 weeks old sunday and so LAZY.
it's awesome that lauren is so at peace with him.
he doesn't jump and he loves to be rubbed.
this is saturday night: lauren wanted to sleep with him.
and can you believe she gave him one of her 1000's of stuffed animals?

this is sunday morning.
yes he woke us up at 6:00 am.
needless to say we were early for church.

this is cookie saturday once we got back from picking him up.
so this is for you tammy (frugalscrapper) looks like cookie love CROCs too. lmao

aw! so SWEET. i love his personality. lazy and content.

look at that face..... so cute!

now to just get him to quit peeing on my carpet.
but that will take time and patience.

my little hunter

watch out hunters, there is a new HUNTER in town..... fred took lauren hunting saturday...her first dove hunt. fred has not been hunting in years then all of a sudden he is stocking up on ammo and getting his hunting license...and there is lauren wanting to go along with Dada to kill some birds. she was all GUNG -HO till she noticed that she had to walk, and walk alot. she had a great time and her fanny pack was full of toys and snacks.
she is looking forward to duck season. and she is already asking is there is a rabbit season....i told her rabbit season is after the first frost and you have to eat what you kill. so she is not keen on killing anything anymore, but i think if fred brings home a dove she will try it.
she has to wait till she is 8 i think to go thru hunters safety....wonder if she will be still a hunter at age 8? time will tell, but i love this picture of her....

my personality...

You Are An ISTJ

The Duty Fulfiller

You are responsible, reliable, and hardworking - you get the job done.

You prefer productive hobbies, like woodworking or knittings.

Quiet and serious, you are well prepared for whatever life hands you.

Conservative and down-to-earth, you hardly ever do anything crazy.

In love, you are loyal and honest. If you commit yourself to someone, then you're fully committed.

For you, love is something that happens naturally. And you don't need romantic gestures to feel loved.

At work, you remember details well and are happy to take on any responsibility.

You would make a great business executive, accountant, or lawyer.

How you see yourself: Decisive, stable, and dependable

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Boring, conservative, and egotistical

well, we had a horse......

Monday FIL came home with a beautiful horse named HOT ROD. (Lauren named him Tom) he was a gift to all the grand-girls since all of them love horses, but i think Lauren worked her charm on him....

he was really too tall and he was stubborn as a mule. i liked his personality. he was gentle as long as the reins were not on. so he is to call the guy back today for selling him a stubborn horse. and see about getting another one that we can ride.

Running with the Pigs

omg! i love piggy, collect them and they are all over my house. but since saturday night i will never be able to look at my piggy's the same.....

on the way back to the store from eating at a bbq joint we decided to go and take pictures with these pigs that are in this field next to the interstate. then we see this sign that says private property no trespassing....oh no we are going to get in trouble....so Lori jack decides to jump the gate and run for the pigs, Ashley s is tripping out about going to jail should the cops come, and Patti is laughing her ass off at Lori "porking" the pig..... oh my gawd, we all about peed in our pants. then Patti, Monika and i dared to run out there and give it a go......then Patti takes off like a bat outta hell toward the truck and she is a track star.....hauling ass! all i can here is christy yelling "look at patti run" so funny.

so were all get back to the store and amynnn tells us that it's okay to take pictures with the pigs....so much for that adventure, but so funny and fun, i WILL NEVER forget the day we

ran with the pigs

weekend part 2 (christy and Jim)

friends? naw i would say long lost family! jim and christy were awesome. what a great pair of jokers. i was scared to meet christy and nervous about the "GUNS", but they made me well welcome and so nice...christy popped my bra after only a few minutes at the store, jim signed my ball jacket and i got flashed on the first night....but they will deny....but i did.... and monika "mom" gave me the ad of jim and got him to sign it....way cool!
one day florida will be visited by Lori #1 and i will have to make a trip to see my new buddies. i love you two very much. and i miss y'all dearly

weekend part 1


lorijack and i drove up to Dallas friday morning! great drive up there! we even drove by texas stadium, but troy was not there...LMAO...

then to the store: BLOWN AWAY! totally, totally wonderful to see all the ladies from last year and all the new ones....then kristin stock is sitting her ass right there and i did not see her! i was shocked.

then i got to finally meet my Mom and my Auntie Cheri....love them two ladies....they rocked my world.

seeing everyone was over whelming. i was in awe at the emotions i was feeling.

we picked up Oscar at the airport friday night and that was a chore in it self. leslie rode with us and i was so nice to meet and chat with her. then i had to keep kristin a secret from oscar till we got back to the store...that was a chore in it self.

awesome to see those two together.
