Did any of you ladies or gentleman know that I was in all the major TV shows?
Candice Cameron on "Growing Pains". I was an understudy with identical hair...Not much camera time though...I was more interested in Kirk (her brother) who came to pick her up!
Last but not least, I was a 90210 original cast member. Tori was jealous of me even though Jennie Garth loved me..what can I say...Love a little drama

His 2nd grade teacher seems really excited and sweet. She is very outgoing and was taking individual time with each student! Jaxon has several students in the same class as last year, so that helps with the comfort level.
I am really trying to squeeze in a couple of fun things...although it has been tough because family is here and we are planning a birthday party for Erik's dad.
So, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU...to all the teachers out there for all the hard work that you put forth to teach our children. I know that it is a job that I could NEVER do and would not even begin to question your dedication. I love the school that my son attends and the staff makes it ....AMAZING!!!

After a day like the one I had, I sort of started to ponder the going back to school days....although a small piece of me realizes that I did not utilize this Summer to spend as much "Quality" time with the boys as I would have liked, I am grateful for the time that we had and I know that there were some great memories there! So, as I countdown my top 10 today is what makes the mom bus better than the standard mode of school transportation? Or does it at all....
Share your thoughts...I'm open!
10. Don't have the fear that my kid gets put on the wrong bus to Timbuktu.
9. Gas Prices...HA
8. Something cool about drop off and pick up
7. Mom waits in the line....Jaxon talks to friends and keeps me waiting
6. No spit wads
5. No making fun of one of my kids for glasses (we know that happens)
4. Me, standing on the corner in my PJ's and a winter vest...(you know who you are!)
3. Having to be out of the house by 8:15am...that never happens in Summer
2. Lost backpack is a thing of the past....
1. Don't have to buy another Christmas gift....(unless it is to reward myself..)

Here is a little thing that I have been playing with for the past couple of days. The site is called ScrapBlog and you can find it at www.scrapblog.com. You can create digital scrapbooking for your blog....normally I am not into digital scrapbooking because I believe it takes all the fun out of your creations, but this is a really neat site that makes your blog jazz up. Take a peak at the site, it is very cool and so many styles and designs to choose from.

Erik had some daddy/boy time at the Twins game (I know what your thinking....AGAIN?) while I got a little work done as well as some errands...it is so joyous to walk into a store without kids...remember that? Oh, how we take small things for granted some times!

Have you ever opened up a cupboard and stuff just falls on you???? Sometimes that is all it takes to start the "organization war" again. That is what inspired me today to get a couple of those "hidden" areas of my home back under control.

I am in the process of planning along with all the other family members....one of my functions was invitations. So here is the finished product! Printed, addressed and stamped. One more thing to cross off the list...Now, if only I could cross of Laundry (can any of us ever cross that off)? Oh, I better go, Mason just changed clothes for the 12th time today.......my little fashion model.
Time 2:15 PM
Here are a couple of pics that I took of them just hanging out. It is amazing to me how great of a connection that they have when they live half way across the world....Jaxon remembers the last time he saw them and when they are out of the house Mason says..."Where are my cousins"?
