No-mess pumpkin carving

The kids are always coming home with fun websites from school. So Lyndsi introduced me to this fun and mindless activity. Try THIS for fun. Pumpkin carving for those of us who don't want to make the mess.

Seriously--for a fun break from your day--give it a try. This site has other fun games (for the kids) to play too!!!

Tennis season, after 6 pm today, is officially over for Landon. Sectional (for Varsity only)--starts Thursday. So the mothers of the tennis players are taking turns this week sending treats for our guys.

I was lucky and got to work with Tara from My life with 6 boys found here.

She doesn't care that I am a PROJECT HOG!!! She called me a blessing--thanks Tara!!!!

So we chatted about it a bit and decided to do something simple. A drink and a little snack. I think they turned out real cute.

The ladies in the office liked them. Speaking of them, I took a little something for them too. They are putting up with us crazy mothers all week. They deserve a little something!! They didn't get the Star Crunch--think of the calories I saved them!!

Hope the boys enjoy their treat. Thanks for letting me hog the project, Tara.

He is really excited!!!

Country living has it's drawback. Like the year that the farmer plants corn in the field next to your home.



Now that is much better. We can now see the bus coming!!! I have neighbors to the east again!! YES!!!

Now for a question. Do you guys have tons of these butterfly/moth bugs at your house?

Does anyone know anything about them. They are all over at our house. Thankfully they are outside. Just was wondered about them.

Speaking of BUGS--Lexi woke up this morning with FEVER!!! GRRRR--I think this is about the 6th week we have been struggling with something. However, I hear we are not the only ones that are struggling with this. Hopefully we can get healthy soon!!!

I was looking back at some older posts this morning and ran across the one I did before Mother's Day and noticed I didn't ever post the finished product. Yes, this is the flower pot we painted and jazzed up for Matt's mom for Mother's Day. She really liked it. Funny story: she called me about a month and a half after and asked what kind of glue I had used. My heart sank and I said--why did the gems all fall off. She said no!! She said it is holding up wonderfully. She had covered a bowling ball with glass gems and took it outside and they are started falling off.

I think I will now go work on a craft project of some sort--I was going to organize something; however, with Lexi home sick I am a little depressed and I am going to craft instead of clean.

Well today's post is a lot about nothing, but it was a least something new to read!!! And there were pictures too!! Two points for me!! Have a great day.

What's on your kitchen floor?

OK--strange question I know, but here at the Lehman household we are in desperate need of some new kitchen flooring. You see we have carpet under our table. Yes, I said we have carpet under our table that feeds 6 children and 2 adults--almost everyday. (Yes, we eat everyday, but sometimes we just don't eat at the table--once and a while we go out or sometimes we got to Grandma's you get the idea. I just didn't want you to think I was starving my children. )

So please let me know what you have and what would work well for messy eaters!!! I would like something that is inexpensive, almost indestructible and easy to clean? Is there something like that out there?

HELP we need your input!!!!!

While we were shopping on Saturday, I told Ubby to sit down and be good. I turned around and this is what I found?
It did keep him busy for a little bit. However, he did think he needed to wear it until we left the store?

Yes, I am still here!!! I know that it has been a while since my last post. However, it is not like I haven't been doing things.

Let's see, here is a very quick recap of the past couple of weeks. (In mostly picture form!!)

Tennis Matches (I quit counting how many!!)

Homecoming Parade (which you can guess requires our favorite flag twirler to practices 3 mornings a week!)

Thank you to Roger and Tara for sharing their sidewalk with us, so we could watch the parade!!

Show-n-tell project
Took some pictures of Murphy (why I am doing show and tell??)

Made some cards quick to mail out!! That reminds me, my card group is starting up again next week. This may be the card I take for that day?

Dress for Lyndsi (this is a fun little dress that you can put together real easy for the pattern on-line @

I have also been working on re-organizing some drawers and fun stuff like that. (no pictures yet)

Oh yes, and how could I forget, the kids have passed around this fun cold germ and for the last month. Logan had it the worst, he ran fever for several days and missed 4 days of school and took two visits to see a doctor!!! (no picture of that either)

Well that covers most of what I have been up to. Hope you guys are having a great week.
