Stupid Liberal!!!

The employer introduced himself to his new gardener.
“I am a professor of logic,” the employer said.
“Oh. What’s that?” the gardener asked.
“I shall give you a demonstration,” announced the professor.
“Do you own a wheelbarrow?”
“Yes,” replied the gardener.
“Then I infer you are a hard worker,” the professor continued.
“And from that fact I infer you have a family. And from that I infer you are conscientious and responsible.
And from that I infer you are a conservative. Am I right?”
“Wow!” exclaimed the gardener. “That’s right! So that’s logic?”
“That’s logic,” preened the professor.
Later the gardener met up with one of his buddies and told him he had a job with a professor of logic.
“Logic?” his friend asked, “What’s that?”
“I’ll show you,” the gardener said. “Do you own a wheelbarrow?”
“Stupid liberal.”


We are Cavity FREE!

Today Taylor and Trevin visited the dentist for their cleaning visit. We found this awesome pediatric dentist, before we got there the kids were a little nervous, but they begged to stay when we were done. =) I had to remind them we were in a dentist office, not an arcade. The place was brightly painted, It had a cracked ceiling that looked like a rocket had just been launched through it, huge flowers and stuffed animals decorating the place and about 5 diffrent arcade games. Then as if I wasn't impressed enough by the waiting area, we walked into the back and each little area was a different color , With flowers and stuffed animals everywhere and 2 arcade games for the kids to play as they wait on other siblings. It was impressive. Anyways, the whole reason for this post believe it or not was not to tell you how cool the dentist office was, but to tell how incredibly proud I am of Taylor and Trevin because they were told that their teeth look perfect and they are cavity FREE! Way to go Tay & Trev!!

Trevin Is 4!!!

This past sunday Trevin turned 4. Wow, that is so CRAZY!! Our Baby... is getting so Big! It seems like we spent most of the past weekend celebrating. Sunday morning we took cupcakes to sunday school for him to celebrate with his class. Sunday afternoon Grandma got him a little cake and we put candles in it and sang "Happy B-day", Sunday night we did our normal, went to McD's with all our friends and let the kids play. And then on Monday evening we had a little party with some of Trevins friends from church.

He had so much fun, he was really excited because his friend Anthony was able to come, so for once he actually had some boys to play with. (He is usually the only boy amongst a bunch of girls. )

We all had a really good time, Thanks so much to Uncle P.J, Aunt Shawna, Lex and Gentry for letting us borrow your bounce house. The kids LOVED it!Special Thanks to Papa and Grandma for making the long... trip out here to be with us for Thanksgiving and Trev's B-day! We Love You Guys!


Have you turned in your list?

Tonight after putting the kids to bed, I waited about 5 minutes and then eased into Taylor’s room. I flipped on the light and shut the door. To her great surprise there I sat next to her on her bed with a notebook and pen. She was squinting because her eyes were trying to re-adapt to the light, but I could still see the expression on her face like, “What is going on?”. I told her to whisper VERY quietly so that her mom and Trevin could not hear. Then I asked her, “What do you want for Christmas? You get to pick 5 things, whatever you want!”

She thought about it for awhile then said, “I was hoping someone would ever ask me what - I ever - I wanted!” She continued, “I really need a new Tea Party Set, BUT it has to be GLASS, not fake.”
2. Dress up dolls – “Disney Princess ones”
3. A small stuffed baby donkey – “To sleep with”
4. A Bed Canopy for HER bed – “Pink, Purple and Yellow”
5. Little Vacuum – “With the batteries already in it”

I then moved on to Trevin’s room with the same act, and received the same look. Here is the list he gave me…
1. A Spiderman Toy
2. A World like a Ball – “Globe” – apparently he seen this amazing thing at Sam’s Club and has not stopped talking about it for 3 days
3. A Tractor – “Yellow”
4. A Bike – “Green one”
5. A motorcycle “Red”

I then moved on to Deanna’s room with the same act, and received the same look. She said she had already been working on her list in Microsoft Word for a few months and that when she gets it completed she will email it to me.

I got an A+ on this paper! It took 7 years to complete.


Me On My New Motorcycle...

Deanna thinks motorcycles are dangerous. I enjoy riding though.

Tonga Toast Recipe

Courtesy of my dad…


I was looking for a deep fried french toast recipe that I could freeze and simply bake later for a quick breakfast. Kim had bought a bag of it from the yellow truck that delivers to people and is expensive.. Swensons or something like that. We deep fried french toast at Carrows but I liked this other because it was dipped in a batter or crumb mixture of some sort and baked very nicely in 10 minutes.

Stumbled on this Tonga toast recipe and thought the kids would like it for a special treat breakfast.

This sweetly decadent breakfast is one of the most talked-about menu items in Disney World. Served at Disney's Polynesian Resort for more than 25 years, it is on the menu at the Kona Café.

Tonga Toast Recipe

* 1 cup sugar
* 2 teaspoons cinnamon
* 1 loaf sourdough bread (8 inches long)
* 2 bananas, peeled
* 1 quart canola oil, for frying

1. Mix the sugar and cinnamon with a fork until thoroughly blended; set aside.
2. Slice the bread into four 2-inch-thick slices.
3. Cut each banana in half crosswise, then each piece lengthwise.
4. Place a bread slice flat on the counter and tear out just enough from the middle (do not tear all the way through) to stuff half a banana into it; repeat with each slice of bread.
5. In a large pot or deep fryer, heat the oil to 350 degrees F;
6. Gently place one bread slice into the oil for 1 minute, or until light brown.
7. Turn and fry for another minute on the other side.
8. Remove bread from the pot and toss it in the sugar and cinnamon mixture.
9. Repeat for each piece.

Best regards,

I can't wait until I'm singing these blues...

I'M NOT A DOG LOVER!!! I just love my dog...

I’m not a “dog lover” by any means, ask anybody that knows me and they will agree. My wife is quite the opposite (as with most subject matters) in fact she is the epitome of dog lovers. I do admit that I “like” Ginger very much and would probably cry if anything were to happen to her; which is far more loving towards any animal then I was just a few years ago.

I noticed a “Featured Headline” on the Yahoo home page: “Foods that harm pets… Giving table scraps to your pet can cause health and behavioral problems.” And: “Safe Thanksgiving for dogs”. I have to say I was most intrigued by these titles. This would explain Ginger’s heaviness and her abnormal behavior! So I began an exhausting 10 minutes of research about dogs and table scraps and learned a few things.

Ginger was a very “cute” puppy. I remember when she was very small; we decided when we bought her that we were not going to feed her “people” food. Well only a couple of cute looks and whimpers broke us of that idea. Now she isn’t so small. I told Deanna that we should take her back and get our money back because they said she was a miniature. Anyways I learned that feeding your dog table scraps leads to many problems.

By giving your dog table scraps you are setting yourself up for years of begging at the table.
When you decide enough is enough, the begging and cute tender looks in your direction become crying, whimpering, barking and other attention grabbers.
Very unhealthy; many human foods are not good for dogs and can harm them. Dogs will eat almost anything, but that doesn’t mean it is good for them.

Dogs are naturally pack animals. Dogs view you and your family as a pack. Packs have a hierarchy and it only has one leader (The Alpha). If you allow your dog to eat when you do or with you the dog feels as though it is moving up in rank. If this continues you dog will take on threatening behaviors such as growling and snapping. Dogs should always be fed last and not given any table scraps.

Toxic foods to avoid giving your dog…

Chocolate: Small amounts causes gastrointestinal problems including diarrhea; large amounts causes coma and death.

Grapes/Raisins: Even a small amount can severely damage the kidneys.

Garlic or Onions: Fresh, powdered or cooked lead to damage of red blood cells causing anemia.

Macadamia Nuts: More gastrointestinal upsets, lethargy, vomiting and muscle tumors.

Mushrooms: Can cause shock and death.

Tomatoes: Tomatoes of all kinds in the smallest portions can cause severe gastrointestinal upsets.

Raw Potatoes, Nutmeg, Turkey Skin and Caffeine are the remaining foods that are dangerous, they cause coma and death.

Hope this was a little helpful…

What Did You Do For Halloween?

Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween. We didn’t go out this year, we went to church and then passed out candy. The kids were content with giving out the candy rather then going door to door. They were very upset by 9:00 when there was nobody coming up to the door.
