Birthday, mums, kids and giveaways!

I just remembered I needed to change my profile.....another birthday rolled around!

Between all the rain we have had this week and the sun setting earlier I've gotten behind on my mowing. It already looked like I was baling hay earlier this week, and now we have had more rain. I had spent most all of last Saturday mowing and didn't get half-way done. So it looks like I'm going to be spending this Saturday doing the same.

We planted some mums last weekend as a border on the side of our driveway. I had a couple of yellow ones, some beautiful deep burgundy and a couple of gorgeous magenta color. This is basically the beginning of our landscaping since we built this home in 1999. A friend of mine is going to give me some monkey grass early next week. And we had also planted a couple of shrubs on each side of the garage ramp.

We are awaiting the arrival of our almost 5 year-old grandson, Ethan. They grow up so fast.

My youngest son, Kyle called the other day to inform me of what my 2-1/2 year-old granddaughter did at school.

They live in Georgia so we don't get to see her very often. Everytime she is around us she seems so quite and timid, although not necessarily shy. However to hear her parents she is a handful. Actually on the 2nd day of school she got to be the "Happy Helper" of the day. Well the teacher was asking all the children to sit down and this one little boy "Tucker" (who goes to her grandma's daycare) wouldn't sit down. So she goes over and pushes him into his seat. Needless to say she then got to sit in the "Sad Seat".

Well on Wednesday her and this same boy, "Tucker" (who is a little younger than her but much larger) were evidently fighting over a block. He apparently gets her down and is laying on her. Naturally she can't fight him off so she bites him. Enough to draw blood! Once again she got in trouble....Tucker did too. Kyle said he was going to have to talk to her when he got home that night. He wasn't sure just what he was going to do, after all she was using the only defense she could probably muster up, with him laying on her. I haven't heard yet just how that discipling was handled.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month and 5 Minutes for Mom is giving away this Casio Pink EX-Z75 digital camera. You can get all the details here.
