What a day! I am sitting here in the den (on matt's computer) listening to Matt and my daddy yell at the television. They are watching two footballs games at once, OU and OSU I am not sure who is winning... I'm not really into football. Last Saturday Matt's mom (paula) was here and was yelling at OSU... Izzy was really curious about that. It was pretty funny. She tried to get Izzy to hollar for OSU.
I have spent the last three hours at the dining room table "helping" Amanda make a toothpick sculpture that had to be 8 inches high and 6 inches wide. We built a church. I would post a picture of it and you would be very impressed (you'll just have to take my word for it :o)... because I am not sure how to load pics on this computer. Anyway, I'm pooped... it was very tedious.
Izzy woke up at 4:56 this morning. I snuggled her in my bed and got a few more hours in (thank goodness). She likes to snuggle in the mornings lately. I made breakfast (eggs, bacon, gravy and biscuits). It was very yummy!
Bath & Body has a seasonal lotion/spray/soap that is peppermint. I bought a bottle of the lotion last year and realized how much I liked it after Christmas was over and they didn't sell anymore. I got an email coupon and then had another so I stocked up. I love for Izzy to smell really good mostly because everyone at her school is very close to her. Therapists and teachers etc. hold her and work with her. I've always had a 'thing' about my babies (I know she's not a baby) smelling good.
I got goodmail today! Thanks Nancy Face for the sweet Thanksgiving card & stickers and yummy green apple caramel suckers. They remind me of my old friend Mendy. Mendy is not old. I just mean we've been friends for so long (since we were 9 years old). She loves those suckers! Mendy finished her masters degree and had her fourth son all in the last year or so. She's a busy girl and I hardly get to see her. I am trying to figure out a way to spend a day or two in Tulsa and spend some time with her and also meet Susan (Penless Writer). Sounds fun huh?
So, then I ran in the grocery store and got some food ... I'm baking a ham for lunch tomorrow after church. Amanda's new friend is coming over again. I planned to make potato salad tonight (for tomorrow) but I think I'm too sleepy tonight. My plan is to put the ham in the crockpot tonight with pineapple and brown sugar glaze... and then put a pumpkin pie in the oven in the morning. I guess we could have baked potatoes... but I thought baked beans and potato salad sounded perfect with the ham and hot rolls (and pumpkin pie :o)...Be blessed my friends!
