Such a long week!  October is always a hard month at RTG it's our fall clearance sale month and usually that means LONG hours but great sales and some bonus $...usually! That isn't the case for me this month :(  Oh well such is life I guess we can't win 'em all right??  But WHY? I want to win them all! darn it :P I've been asking my boss how I can get it turns out it's not as easy as I'd hoped! haha! I either have to hit someone, which doesn't work cause I hit at least one of the bone heads that I work with everyday, or be bottom of the sales board for 4 months in a row!  4 months...I was hoping to get fired before Christmas so I can spend some time with Jennie and RJ before they take off to Germany!  Ok ok I'm just kidding I'm thankful for my job...that's what my mom told me to be!
The good news it that I have the next two days off to be with my sweet baby boys and enjoy some real life :D   Dinner with Jen and RJ tomorrow night, church on wed, and pumpkin patch thurs! Hopefully I'll get the floors mopped and the dishes done too, but chores wont be my priority! 
Speaking of our boys I started this blog to record some of the day to day funny stuff that they do and say so I'll dedicate this paragraph to that....Yesterday morning I had to come back to the house after leaving for work to get something I had forgotten.  I pulled across the drive and left my door open, Jason and Grayson were out in the driveway playing.  When I ran back outside to leave Grayson was standing by my open door with one hand in the air and swirling his hips around and around dancing to the country radio station I had playing! That kid LOVES to dance...he gets it from his mama!
Luke has, at two years old, mastered reverse psychology!  When Jason is getting on to him for something he says, "You happy not mad!" or "You not mad happy Daddy!"  I love it he's a great debater already :D Oh and he's starting to get the potty training thing ☺

Ok time for bed I have a big couple of days ahead of me...Hope you do too! Enjoy life and the people who make it great!

Get it started...

Now is as good a time as any to start journaling some thoughts and events in our lives.  So here we go...
This week will be Luke's last week in school (daycare).  He enjoys it very much but I think that he will be just as excited to stay home with us and have family fun :D So I have to do some research and find some kind of teaching books or DVD's or something to help prepare him for kindergarten but I'm sure that wont be hard to find.  He will be with Jason Sat Sun and Mon then me Tues and Wed, my Mom on Thurs and Jason's Dad on Friday...lots of bouncing around so I'm praying that it doesn't mess his schedule up to much.  Grayson is going to be doing what he always does...smiling and going with the flow (ok maybe not ALWAYS but he is like that most of the time:)). 

In other news...My sweet seester Karissa was here in town last week with her sweetie Travis.  They are so cute together, we really enjoyed having them around!  Thursday night we hung out here at our house and had dinner and played a board game..then Friday we went to see Jennie, Robbie and the baby then enjoyed some time downtown lakeland at the classic car show.

Speaking of Jennie Sue!  She and Robbie welcomed their amazing baby boy to the world on Tuesday October 12, 2010.  Robert Thomas Simison was 8lb1oz and 20 1/2 inches long (Robbie said we are going to call it 21 inches cause we round up in this family :))  He's perfect and is so far giving Mom and Dad a pretty easy time!  Robbie will be leaving tomorrow morning to go back to Germany to prepare for Jennie and the baby's arrival.  We will be praying that the Army moves faster than usual and that they can all be in Germany by Christmas! 

Ok so thanks for reading...maybe I'll get better at this as we go along?!
