It comes in two flavours

I will forever call it Church Juice, I've never tasted it's like elsewhere. Except maybe at another church. The pink flavour is where it's at!

Oh don't get me wrong! I like winter fine enough, and I love fall, but the weather got too cold too fast for a while there, and I started to panic. If it had stayed cool, I think there would've been a lot of depressed people this winter. Fortunately, the weather warmed up, and we relaxed a little. We know what's coming, but in the meantime we can enjoy all these pumpkin flavored things. Or just pumpkin pie....mmmm...pumpkin piiiiie.

Universal Truth

This is also true for Blizzards, Peanut Buster Parfaits (for those not allergic) and Banana Splits. But Slurpee's more then anything.

Unexpected Animatronics of Terror!

For whatever reason, the store was set up so you had to go through the scary section that was lined with their animatronic monsters, in order to get to the safer kid section. There may have been another way around, but at the time I didn't see it. In fact I wasn't looking at much of anything. Why do animatronics always look so mangy? Except for the zombies! They are in full gory detail!
Personally I like the more innocent side of Halloween. I like the spookiness over the jump scare and the Fall celebration over the gore fascination. And, of course, I loved trick-or-treating!

This incident happened a few years ago, Chris is older now and probably wouldn't be as frightened as he was then. Maybe. Seriously, Mangy!

Uh-Oh.... UH-OH!!

Actually it was on Lucy's third attempt to touch the bear that Daniel decided he was done. Poor little guy had just woken up from a nap.
Also by the time Erin came back upstairs I was laughing too hard. Just the timing of it all!

Every Sister for Herself!!

If you ever find yourself running away from a bear with Erin, stay out of arms reach!
That's John chasing them by the way. I believe this was when he discovered the ultimate summer weapon that is the garden hose.

Hot Soup!

People who like hot/spicy foods are a poor judge for people who can't handle them. Personally my mouth burns if I have even the mild stuff. The soup was probably medium. It was quite tasty though, and cleared up my sinuses pretty good!

I still giggle at how my mom said that.
Also I hate to say it, but the caterpillars were looking mighty fuzzy this year too. I guess time will tell.

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge with a Lemon Twist.

Personally, at the moment I just have enough money to cover bills.
But we will be donating to the ALS in memory of Father Mike Koch (pronounce Cook), who was a priest at our church and all around nice man, he passed away due to ALS. I nominate anyone who can give.
You should also go take a look at Kim's webcomic at:

Back to School Blues

Best of luck to all those people going back to school!
Even though I am completely done school (although I probably will still take art classes as my life goes on) I get this feeling of dread when people talk about kids going back. I think it ties in with the feeling that summer is slowly coming to a close. And this summer was WAY too short for my liking!

I'm not a morning person

I wake up with some pretty fabulous hair styles. I've woken up with The Wolverine hair style before. Like The Wolverine from the old 90's cartoon of The X-Men.

What's not in the comic is John's high pitch, infectious, giggling that followed. He likes to annoy me.
