T or T

The force was ever present in our livingroom tonight.......
All this time I thought it was James Earl Jones....turns out it's Jordan. A good time was had, candy was devoured, and even some leftover snacks for lunches. Another successful Halloween!


Cody wants a new pair of inline skates for his birthday so on a spare of the moment we went to skate and possibly check out thier pro shop.....Couldn't wait to get laced up and hit the floor (one way or another!)Poor kid was exhausted!


I made this cake for Cody to take to his CAP meeting for their halloween party, that's why he's wearing camo.......

SO my final cake class was today (for this session) and we had to do the basketweave technique and place all of the flowers that we made through the weeks. So here is the final creation......
Tom keeps asking when we can eat it! He's a cake lover.

So Cadet McKelvey (Cody) worked hard these past months and passed his PT (physical training) test and his written leadership exam and got promoted tonight to Cadet Airman McKelvey! He is so excited he was practically dancing!

These are his dress blues uniform.


Just got a great deal on fabric softener.......There is a coupon in the red plum coupon pack from the 10/04 sunday paper for $3 off on 1 Snuggle 32 load bottle. So I went to the dollar general and got a whole bottle of fabric softner for $0.80! Love getting bargains.

Having 2 boys it's not often that I get to talk about pink things. So I jumped at this opportunity. The fountain at Point State Park in Pittsburgh is flowing with pink water all month in honor of breast cancer awareness. I have seen first hand what this disease can do. My stepmother, who was more than a mother to me, died when I was in high school from breast cancer. I watched her suffer and even stayed home on occasion to take care of her. That was 27 years ago and there is still not enough progress being made. Please do whatever you can to help.
