Ok, all you moms out there. I have a problem. One that just keeps getting worse. Little Miss Sinclaire, as most of you know just wont use the potty. I have tried candy, stickers, getting mad, being as nice as can be, new panties, a little potty, the zoo, more candy, etc. I have tried everything to get her to use the potty. I thought for a while that we were on our way, but after 5 months of wearing panties, yes we still had some accidents, she started having 4+ accidents a day. So I put her back in diapers. So it is about a month later and here is the kicker. Yesterday she said she didn't like diapers and that she wanted to wear panties. I about jumped up and down. But I kept calm and just said great, we will get you some new panties. Well I think combined we have changed her pants 8 times between the two days. WHAT is the problem here???? She told me she wanted to wear panties, but she still will walk over to the couch, past the bathroom and pee in her pants. So what do you think?

Food for 40???

I don' t know why I always choose the food for enrichment. It always takes forever and something always seems to take a turn for the worse. But mostly I just get annoyed that I have to plan for 40. I understand that there maybe 40 people there, but the chance of that is very slim. Plus, I always have way too much food left over. Or maybe what we make just plain doesn't taste good. I never thought of that. It isn't that we are always feeding half of what is planned for, it is because the food is terrible. I feel much better now. I will continue to make food for 40(mostly because I don't want to do anything else) but now I will feel better about it. I know the next time 40 people will come. Probably to spite me 48 people will come and I will have too few slices cake.

Moving On

We have been out of town a lot. Last weekend we had my mom's auction. I know it has been two years in the making, but my dad had lots of stuff to get rid of. It was a freezing cold day, but no snow so that was a blessing. I am just glad that it finally happened and that most of that stuff is gone, I know my mom is glad too. But most of all someone else took it away and I didn't have to. I know not many people go to auctions, but I love them. I love the great deals you can get, and what good stuff to be had. Now we have to get the rest of the doors out of the house so we can move on to the next step-pushing over the house that is pictured below. Then we will burn the house, the barn, and all the out buildings. As I think about it it is a little bit sad, but things happen and we move on.

Happy Halloween

This is the loot from trick or treating. We went around grandma's neighborhood and had a great time. I think we filled a wal-mart sack with all that candy.

Our little cupcakes loved eating donuts. Is that politically correct?
Cupcakes eating donuts.

Sinclaire loved being a cupcake, and we were just happy that Kit Kat kept on hers. I think the cherry on top was my favorite. She almost didn't wear it, but I tricked her into it by saying it was only for the picture. Well, needless to say it was a very long picture.

We had a great halloween dressing up and enjoying the festivel. Now what to do with all that candy.
