So we started going through our Christmas movies and of course I then started thinking, what are my top 5 favorite Christmas movies. So here are mine (unless I decide to edit and alter because I forgot one), what are yours?

A Christmas Story
It's a Wonderful Life
National Lampoons Christmas Vacation (doesn't everyone have at least one Cousin Eddie?)
Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer

Loaded Questions Part 2

So here are the people who sent an answer AND their answer (in random order). So now each person needs to post in comments who they think said what. Good Luck and Mom and Dad said whoever wins gets a new car, or at least one from Florida off ebay.

What is the first thing you notice when you meet someone?

People who entered the contest:


The answers:

1. The first thing I notice about someone is their imperfections. Not in a judging way.. I just can't help observing if their nose is a little pointy or if they have a double chin (he he). If this akes me a bad person, let the tomato throwing begin.

2. I notice toes. Especially peanut shaped toes. The worst is when their second toe is longer than their big toe. It looks freaky like E.T. or something.

3. My eyes can't help but be drawn to a persons ready to be popped zit. If they don't have that, then I would say teeth. Hate to say it, but teeth say a lot about a person.

4. Their body language.

5. Their face, how they do their hair and what they are wearing. So basically personal grooming habits.

Now in the comments, write each person name and the number you think their answer is. You can only use each answer and name once. We will be running a total over the next couple of months and yep you guessed it, whoever wins... gets the CAR!


1. steff
2. me
3. lorri
4. wendi
5. dave

1. Lorri
2. Matt
3. Wendi
4. Dave
5. Steff

And since I already know the answers here are they are correct (in no specific order)...

1. Steff
2. Matt
3. Wendi
4. Dave
5. Lorri

Thanks for everyone who played over the last month. Maybe when I think of a new way to post answers we will do it again :)

Ryan turns 8

Can you believe how fast Ryan is growing up? We celebrated by having a football tailgate party. The boys played flag football and lightning, the day was beautiful and most importantly Ryan was happy.

Isn't he great - boy do we love him!

DisneyWorld or bust

We had the best time at DisneyWorld! I look at the pictures and want to go back, really, is there anything better than sun, ocean, beach and Disney? I'm only posting one picture here, I'm working on a slideshow for our blog, I'm sure you are all dying to see the pictures, haha.
This is us at the Polynesian resort, we are waiting for the bus to take us to the cruise ship,
ahhh good times.

More pumpkin Fun

I'm trying to get Tanner hooked on blogging ( kind of like hooked on phonics, but funner- so you guys keep telling me:)) so I showed him how to post some pictures and encouraged him to add some funny dialog to go with it. I gave him some ideas and let him loose, hence the "Sweet Pumpkins" post. I will say one thing, he knows how to get to the point and keep it short and sweet. We did have fun carving pumpkins, everyone got involved and very creative.
The creations all lined up
Tanner and Coty got pretty precise, no jack-0-lanterns here

Rebecca and roommates stayed with us for the weekend. She didn't stay to carve pumpkins with us but we enjoyed going to lunch and visiting while some guys nobody seemed to know hung out at the house playing rock band.

Coty is getting involved, he was part of a group of students that offered to run the games at our school carnival. My Ironman liked his game the best.
(btw, notice the rug burn on Coty's forehead, I'm thinking he should think twice before wrestling his roommate again :)

Coty helping Matthew get three in a row at the Twister tic-tac-toe game. Thanks Coty, you're the best!
