Ten on Tuesday

1. Hmmmnnn...it was supposed to snow today. But it appears to have only rained a little. I wish I could be wrong at my job 50% of the time and still keep it. Derek did not say it would be like this...(Those of you in Cincinnati will get the Derek Beasley reference.)

2. Lots of people in the scrapbook groups that I am a part of are doing a project called Project 365, where you take a photo a day and journal it-by the end of the year you have a scrapbook full of "day in the life" moments. There's no way I could do it every day-I just don't have the time-but I am going to try and do it weekly. Check back this weekend and I'll post my first two pictures of "Project 52".

3. Funny Jackson story-a few days ago he was being his totally stubborn self. It was taking him forever to get ready for bed and I still had a million things to do. I was really exasperated and said "If you don't get you teeth brushed and get into bed, I'm going to beat you!" Now I would never beat my child-I rarely, if ever, spank the boys. I just don't find it that effective of a punishment and I don't want them to get the impression that it is okay to hit when you are upset. But I sometimes when I get really aggravated I'll "threaten" to spank them. So this particular night, Jackson went downstairs to ask his Daddy to put the toothpaste on his toothbrush (he can be really messy, so one of us usually does it for him). Chuck asked him why he didn't just have me do it since I was upstairs with his brothers. Jackson very matter of a factly said, "Mom said she was going to beat me, I think she means it this time!" :)

4. I had to buy a bunch of bibs for Brody this week-he's such a drool monster. I think the one in this picture is my favorite. Why yes, Brody, they do!

5. The twins are really enjoying basketball. My sister in law, Loretta, and I sat together at this past week's game. We got totally caught up in the game and were screaming our heads off. Our husbands are sort of known for how intense they are when they watch UK games. I think we sounded a bit like them while watching our sons.

6. Speaking of basketball, Bryce was playing and had a couple of people guarding him. I could tell he was frustrated, but everyone knew it, when he shouted at the defense "Will you back off?". Hee. If only it was that easy.

7. While I'm loving Facebook, I have had a number of people I really don't remember at all from high school that have requested to be my friend. I confirm them because I don't want to seem rude-but am I really getting so old that I can't remember these people? Central Baptist wasn't that big!

8. American Idol is back on tonight. I'm not sure how I feel about that. We watched it with the boys last year-they really enjoyed it. But I'm kind of burnt out on it. I guess we'll see.

9. Have you tried Goldfish Cinnamon Grahams? Not the big ones-the little ones. They are delicious!

10. My sister in law, Bobbi, had a birthday last week-I know she visits here from time to time-so I just wanted to say "HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOBBI!" You can visit her blog here. She's an amazing photographer and wonderful sister in law!

I always come to read your 10 on Tuesdays even if I don't get to comment :) Brody's bib is the cutest and I actually think we are going to get to go to a game this weekend!

Thanks for the bday shoutout and the gift...sneaky, sneaky to go through Heather Heat (call her that and ask her why...that or Double D's)
