Halloween is almost here.

Skye, our dog, has already gotten her halloween costume prepared.
Behold... FrankenDog:

She got into a little scrap with the new dogs at the farm. Remember them? McE took her out there and the sniffing turned ugly. And a little Micheal Vick action went down. But the Skye dog took it. She was the only one injured but she never yelped or cried. I don't think she knew she was hurt. Actually, neither did McE. He saw the wound when he got home. Skye was treated to stitches and 22 staples. She also had to wear the 'cone of shame' for a day. I think that was the worst part for her. She really was embarrassed.

Skye is recovering well and being a great patient.

Katie my oldest niece, had a franken foot this summer. I pray we don't have any more Frankens in our family.

Have a happy day.

Blame it on the bacon.

Well, this weekend was quite busy. Saturday was two kids in two different spots. Charlie had a football game and it was an exiting one. Sammy had a Pony club rating test. Fortunately, the parents can't be help or be involved. Much to my relief. So, I left her at the barn to fend for herself and went to watch the football game. The good news... Charlie's team won (in the last 20 seconds) and Sammy passed her ratings test. Yippee...

But let me share with you the highlight or low point of the weekend, depending on your point of view. I wore a new skirt to church on Sunday. It felt a little snug but it was a stretch material so I thought it would be alright. Besides I had on a long t-shirt. I accessorized with complimentary jewelry trying to take the focus off the tight skirt. Looking good. Even McE said I looked nice when I came downstairs. Well, as I was leaving the service this gal came running up to me and said .... 'Sabrina, your skirt is unzipped'. I quickly covered my backside with my Bible, thanked her and ran off in shame. Seriously? I had meant to ask McE to zip me up when I came downstairs but I was distracted by the smell of bacon. Ok... here is the kicker... We were seated towards the front, spent 1/2 the service standing and I was wearing a thong. Ha! No I wasn't wearing a thong. But the rest of this is a true story. Oh, the embarrassment of flashing folks in church.

Have a happy day and try not to flash anyone.

Sabrina and the web

The other night McE and I had a dinner alone. We couldn't decide what to have. Finally, we just went to the grocery and picked up something. We found T-bones on sale. So, that is what decided dinner. I picked up the stuff to make Pioneer Woman's onion blue cheese sauce.

I realize this shot looks like worms in mud. Appetizing thought, I know. But believe me when I say this it is delightful. You must try it. Go here at Pioneer Woman's site now and get the recipe. Yummm!

Have a happy and delicious day.

Goodbye summer...Hello school

I realize that many areas have already gone back to school but my kids started today. Here is the new 4th grader...

I sent him in with this for his teacher.

Because I feel a the sucking up cannot start too early.

And here is the new 6th grader. Middle school is gonna be awesome.

It's gonna be great year. I just have to get used to waking up. I don't think one cup of coffee is gonna do it.
*****the dog just threw up beside me as I was uploading pictures. I hope that is not a sign of the school year ahead of me. I wonder if I need to check the lunch meat I packed.****
Have a happy day.

A week in review and Friday fill ins

This week has been pretty uneventful. This is our last week of freedom. The kids are starting to fight. I think they are ready to go back to school. I don't mind them going back to school but I don't want to wake up early. It really cramps my style. We visited Sammy's new middle school. It is like a bad lab rat maze, all the hallways look the same. It brought back memories of starting high school where I got lost everyday the first two weeks of school. And was scared to death because my brother told me not to go where the smokers hang out. I was just sure I would end up there and they would make me smoke. But I'm sure she'll be fine.

Here are our Friday fill ins and for some reason I can't put my answers in another color.
1. I feel _____. really thirsty

2. ___________ is always fun. Hershey park

3. Right now, I can hear these things: ___________. my kids arguing

4. ___________ and I'm glad ___________. I jogged this evening....I didn't hyperventilate.

5. The last time I ___________ was ___________. farted... a couple of minutes ago

6. ___________ this Labor day weekend. Football starts

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to _____, tomorrow my plans include _____ and Sunday, I want to _____!
today... going to Hershey park...tonight...sleep, tomorrow..football and taking sammy to a b-day party, Sunday...work around the house

Have a happy Labor Day weekend.
