Halloween fun!

How do ya'll make your pumpkin seeds? My MIL gave me
the awesome idea of saving the pretzal salt from the bottom
of the bags through out the year then using it for the seeds.
I also forgot to take the picture with the Worschestire (Sp?) sauce.
I add just a tiny bit and mix the seeds up good also.

Happy Halloween to all of you and your families! I hope everyone had a blast tonight. I took my daughter and two of her friends and Josh to a neighborhood a few minutes away for a couple hours. Man did they all make out like bandits, half the stuff in their bags is full size candy bars, popcorn, fruit roll ups, you name it they got it!
About half way in between a house had the coolest thing set up in their garage. They had it all decorated with tables and chairs and smoke, music, lights, ect. They were serving hotdogs, hot cidar, ice cold water, and full bags of chips. WOW lol.
I am wiped out tonight! I feel like I haven't slept in days but my kids had a ball so that's all that counts. This is the first year since I can remember it hasn't been frigid cold on Halloween night for trick or treating. It was 50 and beautiful! We are used to 10 and colder temps like that lol.
Hubby went back up north this afternoon for a few days to visit with Grant. Last night we carved pumpkins. I did the cat one, hubby did the wolves one, and Ray did the other two. One was from last week. Oh she also did the baby pumpkin for Josh.
I tried to get some pictures tonight of some of the houses we went to because everyone had so much Halloween decor up it was amazing. But I cannot figure out how to get clear, good night shots at all with my camera. I know it has the capability but don't ask me how.
So AOL journals are all gone. I am so mad at them for not making sure EVERYONE got their journals transferred over! I do hope everyone continues getting comfortable here so we do not lose contact with one another!
I know in Jland that a card send was organized for christmas. I wondered if anyone plans on doing that again this year? Or maybe if a few of us together could get it organized? When I used to host tournies for a game called Word Yacht we aside from the card exchange, also drew names and exchanged ornaments. I am not sure if anyone else would be interested in that but it really was a ball the years we did it!
Well I am going to end this for tonight and get ready to fall into bed. Have a great weekend ;)
Love & hugs to you all!

It's a girl thang (Gorjuss) Snag only

Remember to vote (Gorjuss)

Why we love children (really cute!)

Why do we love children?

1) NUDITY I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of us
stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5-year-old shout from the
back seat, 'Mom, that lady isn't wearing a seat belt!'

2) OPINIONS On the first day of school, a first-grader handed his teacher a note from his mother. The note read, 'The opinions
expressed by this child are not necessarily those of his parents.'

3) KETCHUP A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup out of the jar. During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter to answer the phone. 'Mommy can't come to the phone to talk to you right now. She's hitting the bottle.'

4) MORE NUDITY A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in the women's locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement and then asked, 'What's the matter, haven't you ever seen a little boy before?'

5) POLICE # 1 While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, I was interrupted by a little girl about 6 years old. Looking up and down at my uniform, she asked, 'Are you a cop? Yes,' I answered and continued writing the report. My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?' 'Yes, that's right,' I told her. 'Well, then,' she said as she extended her foot toward me, 'would you please tie my shoe?'

6) POLICE # 2 It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front of the station. As I gathered my equipment, my K-9 partner, Jake, was barking, and I saw a little boy staring in at me. 'Is that a dog you got back there?' he asked.'It sure is,' I replied.Puzzled, the boy looked at me and then towards the back of the Van. Finally he said, 'What'd he do?'

7) ELDERLY While working for an organization that delivers lunches to elderly shut-ins, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds. She was unfailingly intrigued by the various appliances of old age, particularly the canes, walkers and wheelchairs. One day I found her staring at a pair of false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced myself for the inevitable barrage of questions, she merely turned and whispered, 'The tooth fairy will never believe this!'

8) DRESS-UP A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, 'Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit.''And why not, darling?''You know that it always gives you a headache the next morning.'

9) DEATH While walking along the sidewalk in front of his church, our minister heard the intoning of a prayer that nearly made his collar wilt. Apparently, his 5-year-old son and his playmates had found a dead robin. Feeling that proper burial should be performed, they had secured a small box and cotton batting, then dug a hole and made ready for the disposal of the deceased.The minister's son was chosen to say the appropriate prayers and with sonorous dignity intoned his version of what he thought his father always said: 'Glory be unto the Faaather, and unto the Sonnn, and into the hole he goooes.'

10) SCHOOL A little girl had just finished her first week of school. 'I'm just wasting my time,' she said to her mother. 'I can't read, I can't write, and they won't let me talk!'

11 ) BIBLE A little boy opened the big family Bible. He was fascinated as he fingered through the old pages. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed in between the pages.'Mama, look what I found,' the boy called out.'What have you got there, dear?'With astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered, 'I think it's Adam's underwear

Last laugh for the night ;) (Mild AC)

Winter fun

Winter is here in Minnesota! It snowed today :( It is around 34 degrees right now and was 37 during the day. Not quite warm enough for it to stay and stick. But oh man does it feel cold outside!

Bingo, pictures, and SICK OF AOL!

You know what I realized tonight trying to catch up on your journals? I read the dashboard thing backwards lol. I wish there were a way to delete the dashboard after you have been through all the updates! If anyone hasn't subsribed to my feed on the side you definately could to get emailed whenever I make a new post.

I planned on writing a longer entry but hubby just made some Chicken Alfredo and brought me a plate with that, corn and garlic bread so I think I will eat and come back and finish this...........

Ok back and my tummy is full! I have been taking Chantix to quit smoking and guess what?? It is working ;) I have went from smoking a pack a day to smoking under 10 in the last 6 days. I have lost the desire and the taste of them is disgusting which I am sure it always was but the pill must be helping. So keep your fingers crossed for me that soon I can say I am 100% done and will never look back!

Last night my daughter and I met my brother, his kids, my sister and her son at Community Bingo on our reservation. We had a blast as usual! We won so much cool stuff. I won a really cool buffet type of server.....actually nevermind I will run and take pictures quick and just post them instead lol....brb again........

Ok here is the things we won last night.....
The picture below this one was FULL of different candles. I won these two candle lanterns awhile back also at bingo.

My brother won this beautiful stained glass picture
He rode with my sis and didn't have room for his
stuff in her little car.

Ok look at this lol...I won a ladder stand for hunting!
My brother said he knows someone who will
probably gladly take it off my hands.

My daughter won two different times and it
was funny because she won the matching set
of these metal pictures. They are really cool

The buffet server I won

The set to the other one my daughter won
Another awesome picture my brother won.

OK so you all want to see my brain fart for the
month?? See where it is cracked on the shelf?
Guess who did that?? lmao I ran into it! WTG
huh? lol

I have a hard time finding rugs to match my
house so I was so happy when I found this one
for my front door. It actually has purple and
green in it....

I went to Homegoods a few weeks ago and found
this cute shower curtain that matches the
pictures in there great. I think it cost me $10.00.
Can't beat that. I also found towels that look great
with it all. LOVE it when that happens ;)

Ok I was going to write more but something is
happening with AOL that is pissing me off so
bad! So I am going to save this before I lost it,
since it takes so long to upload pictures here
also. And delete AOL from my computer
because I am so tired of it's issues! Maybe I
will try to reinstall, otherwise I will just use and sign into my email from it.
I hope that everyone is having a great weekend!
Love & Hugs to you all!
