Cara's Bday song is Babe by Styx.
Brandon's is Debby Boone's You Light Up My Life. HA!
Tonia encouraged comments telling what your songs were. I'd like to extend the same invitation. Please do!

I found them on the couch with Eamon. He had an allen wrench thingy and a strip of styrofoam insulation. I asked him, "How did you make these??" They were so beautiful and coney. I marveled at his smarts.
Here's a couple videos of his explanation.
Apparently, by some miracle, when you poke through styrofoam insulation, the piece comes out cone-shaped. It's the first mischief he's made that has actually had some cool outcome.

IN MY HOUSE. Which I wouldn't mind so much, but it was dead. Which I wouldn't mind so much if I had set a trap, but no. I was rummaging through some craft crap, trying to find a marker and saw what looked like a super moldy deflated balloon. But then it smelled a little. Look at the picture and don't judge me.
You can see its little ears and one leg trapped beneath a bottle.

When we celebrated our first Christmases as a couple, I collected frog-themed ornaments. They are a little unorthodox, but MAN, was I crazy for frogs back in my youth. Even my Mom bought me frog ornaments. Love them!
And last, but certainly not least, is Brandon and me in a special pose, from my house to yours. Hope it warms your heart.

I'm sorry I haven't posted. Really, I am. As I peruse my friends' blogs, and I have to wait too many days in between posts, I am thinking, 'What is wrong with these people??? Don't they know I am waiting for a post???' So people, I feel your pain. I was going to promise to post tomorrow, but I started shaking. Maybe it's because it's freeeeezing in my house right now. Or maybe what I'm feeling is the panic of a person being hunted down daily by her "friends". So here's a few pics, and I'll probably add some more tomorrow.
We'll see what we come up with
Okay, FINE! Here's some other pics....It finally snowed like a winter wonderland here, and the boys played all morning in it. They made a little igloo.
And in other ferret related news....Presenting: the Ying Yang Twins

"From a 1/4 -1/2 inch," I said.
And we talked for 15 minutes and I got his phone number. Here we are 8 1/2 years later.
The day of our anniversary (Tuesday), I called him around lunchtime to ask him what kind of printer/scanner/copier I should buy (cause I wanted to scan these photos). He kept trying to stall me, finally giving up and telling me that he had already bought me one at lunch for our anniversary. We have great timing like that all the time. I was glad to ruin his surprise for me, since any time that I try to surprise him, he does the same. My gift to him was a Magic 8 Ball. Ha. He had actually called a babysitter and took me to Biaggi's at the Gateway, the best Italian restaurant ever. Thanks Babe!

First off, I have to put a disclaimer on these first photos. These costumes were made in FUN, not to make people mad, or get us on the news having to apologize to the world. Freedom of Speech, baby.
When Brandon and I were in Egypt in May, we bought these costumes (sans dynamite)specifically for the super fun of Halloween. When we got all dressed up, of course the thought crossed my mind. How could it not? So we went with it. Brandon is a genius. I could not have made a better bomb myself. Gotta love wooden dowels and spray paint. And cheap clocks from Ikea. And Boy, do I love our uni-brows. Almost my favorite part.
Cam was a cute Harry Potter, which was fun, because his cousin was Hermione. Eamon was a boxer, but due to him tossing me the body part of his costume (without me seeing) and it landing in the toilet, his robe and gloves accidentally got left at home. Poor kid. After that, it was a frantic day, with us forgetting multiple costume pieces, driving home, and still forgetting his stuff. What with that and the hole in my house (follow up later)...it's amazing we finally made it.
Here they are participating in the donut-on-a-string contest. My boys get their fervor from me. Cam won.
Check out the cookie on a stick Eamon is sporting. SUGAR!!!
Poor me. I included even the most hideous of the pictures, since I am an unbiased observer... Really it's just middle child syndrome. (Dan won at the last second.)
Couldn't let them sit all lonely at our house.
Anyway, we went up and down a couple streets and the kids had a blast!
Eamon got right into it and RAN from door to door.
It was really fun for us to watch.
Then we pulled out our new "old man" mask and we all tried it on. Grandpa loved it. He went next door and scared the crippity crap out of his neighbor. Awesome!
Later that night, we had a fun surprise waiting for us at home.
Just pretend it's night when you look at these next photos.
I pulled in and saw the toilet paper. It was quite exciting...
So they got the tree
and there was a piece draped across the porch. On the door was the note.
