I went to preschool to drop off Jack on Thursday. The teachers were handing out the pumpkins that the kids had painted on Tuesday. All the kids had solid orange painted pumpkins. The teacher handed Jack's to me and I didn't look at it until I got back into the car. When I did check it out, I started laughing! He had told me all about his pumpkin on Tuesday, but I had forgotten until that minute. He told me how his pumpkin had hair, eyebrows and freckles. And it sure does! I love that Jack isn't afraid to color out of the lines and do his own thing (at times.)

I went to the store, which will remain unnamed, but I can get a propel, candy, my photos, medication and on this day, to get some packing tape.
I went check out and the gentleman said, "Do you know that you can save more money if you buy our brand of packing tape?" I reply, "Oh, that's OK, but thanks for letting me know."
He goes on..."You know you don't need to get this brand (US Postal Service) it just needs to be clear on your packages."
This is what I wanted to say:
Well, I like this brand. Just like I enjoy a huge cold frapacino on a blizzard day (which I am tired of Starbuck's saying "Don't you know it's 30 below zero and a frapacino is an icy drink?" That's another rant for another day!) Also, your STORE BRAND has less yards on a roll then this brand and my 7 and 4 year old use this tape because it is called the "ONE ARM BANDIT" which means you can hold the box while you tape with the other hand. And if you knew that I had 10,000 boxes to pack, then you would realize that I don't want to mess with your cheap STORE BRAND that I end up throwing half of it away because it folds up on itself or you have to use scissors, and that crap doesn't cut easily. And if you have ever used YOUR BRAND, then you would know that it is thin and doesn't hold and you have to use twice as much. So ring me up and put my purchase in the bag. If I wanted to save money, I would have brought a coupon!
But what I ended up saying was, "I like this brand because I can hold the box with one hand, and you can tape with the other, which is really handy And it has more tape on a roll then your store brand. But again, thanks for letting me know."
Then he asked me, "We have candy bars on sale for 49 cents..."

I honestly do not know where to start the packing. I did get a box and put it into my scraproom with all intentions of beginning, but I just can't pack that room yet. You can see that I even have started a list...with about 3 things on it.
It's a good thing that Jack came along and decided it was time for him to pack. He packed his monkeys, a few legoes, his blankets and Kleenex because he had a runny nose! He told me, "I'm ready to go!" as a friend of mine said, don't you wish it was that easy!

We did our annual "dress up as mummies using toilet paper" the other day. I wrapped up Jack first (duh) and then Sam. Jack was unwrapped by the time Sam was wrapped, so he got a small rewrap...actually a toga. He also did not want his mouth covered, so he looks a little middle eastern.
