Ten On Tuesday

1. It's not even October 1 and I'm thinking Christmas! How sad is that?! But the reason is because yesterday my mom found the Barbie Jeep that I wanted to get Soph for Christmas on sale! SCORE!

2. And that Barbie Jeep is just about all she's getting. I'm not sure if I've mentioned it but we are going to Disney World the week before Christmas! So instead of sunning on the beaches of Mexico for our anniversary, we'll be riding "It's a Small World." Steven has a conference at Disney World so Little Bit, me, AND GiGi are tagging along! We'd be crazy not to go. But believe it or not, I want to drive down there, which might question my sanity. But I'm just freaked out about not having a car. What if I want to go to the Outlets, or McDonalds, or Sea World. Sophie is usually a champ on car trips so I don't see it being an issue.

3. I've decided that spitefulness is an inherit boxer trait. Stella will have an accident and pee RIGHT IN FRONT of us, get in trouble, and then pee RIGHT IN FRONT OF US. It's like she's telling us to kiss her a-double-s. The girl will hold it practically all night long so I'm chalking it up to her being a turd at heart. We start puppy training with the folks who train a lot of the police K9s around here. When I told the lady that we had a boxer puppy, she laughed. And said, that she's never met one yet that wasn't a suborn hard head.

4. Oops almost forgot, we are heading to Pigeon Forge this weekend with PapPaw Rocky. Now this should be quite the trip. I don't think my dad has spent 24 hours with a 3 year old in over 25 years. Bwhahahhaha, he has NO clue what he's in for but this little jaunt was his idea. I've never been to Pigeon Forge and this is a short trip. I know we'll be hitting Dollywood and how knows what else. Probably the interstate to come back home after!

5. The Amazing Race is back on TV! YAY!!!!!! I love that show more than anything. I told Steven the other night that watching it is the most stressful hour of my week! I'm on edge the ENTIRE time. But I love it! And I'm loving the two dudes from the Harlem Globetrotters. What is it about Globetrotters that just make people smile. Even the host of the show is grinning like a fool when those dude step up to the pit stops. Remember when the Globetrotters did a guest appearance on Scooby Doo? They'll be coming to Charleston in January, maybe I should go.

6. I finished the Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood books and now I'm on to Dan Brown's new book AND the second book of the Hunger Games. Man did I love those True Blood books. Now I need to watch the first season of the show!

7. I've given up on trying to find a "crooked hat" for Sophie's witch costume. Kid is just gonna have to deal with the fact that she's going to have a pointy hat.

8. We went to a midget league football game on Sunday to watch my cousin's little boy play. As we were walking back from the concession stand for the 3rd time Steven says to Sophie, "did you see the Winfield cheerleaders over there, you can do that next year." My child says, "nah, I want to do THAT!" And points to the football field. The entire way home she kept saying, "hey daddy did you seem them tackling each other out there!" I'm saying right now, that my tiny little daughter is NOT going to play football. Jesus Christ what is wrong with that child! But here she is practicing her touchdown dance:

9. I'm on the hunt for THE ugliest Christmas sweater that i can possibly find for my husband because I'm bound and determined to have an ugly Christmas sweater party this year. A light up Rudolph sweater might be kind of cool. But Steven had more of a "cousin Eddie" look in mind. You know, thin white v-neck sweater with a black dickie underneath. I didn't even know they sold dickies any more but apparently I have an uncle who is a fan so my aunt said she could hook him up!

10. We saw Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs last weekend. Sophie had to point out that it was not anything like the book (a girl after my own heart)! More importantly, guess what movie they previewed that's coming out in 2010. The SMURFS!

Smurfs?? That is awesome. As for Christmas, I have already bought books and dvd's for Lydia stocking so that is great about the jeep!

Anna said...

Stella looks so much like zoey in the face!!

Christine said...

My girls have the Barbie Jeep and they LOVE it. We were lucky enough to get ours super cheap from my old boss. Have fun at Disney, that's a great time to go cause it's not HOT!!!!

The Smurfs?! You better not be jerking me around, Carr! Is it animated, or CG? Do they still look the same? C'mon...details!

And I love that Miss Sophie is still getting some use out of the Dora crocs! Of course, crocs don't make good football shoes...

Jonathan's Mommy said...

Wow--this is an awesome post! So chock full of information!

I am SO excited about Smurfs! I LOVED the Smurfs!!!

I'm already shopping for Christmas too--Jonathan will (quoting him here) "die" if he does not receive a Zhu Zhu pet. I think they look dumb but I'm on a mission nonetheless.
