6 Quirks

I wasn't tagged to write about this but Molly and I did talk about it when she was staying with me a few weeks ago and it made me think what my quirks are. I was surprised how quickly I was able to think of six of them. That probably is an indicator of how many quirks I actually have.

1. I am obsessively on time (or early.) If I'm not on time for some reason, I usually have "planned" being late in my head or someone else has made me late. It's an annoying problem with me and usually causes me to stress out more than necessary.

2. I don't like wooden spoons AT ALL. I don't have any in my kitchen. I always think they are going to give me slivers, even though I know they won't. (This problem may come from the fact that I had a wooden spoon broken over my bum as a child. I was traumatized by that. :) I'm sure I totally deserved it actually.)

3. I'm terrible about getting the laundry out of the dryer before the clothes start to wrinkle because I don't think it really matters. Although I will iron if I feel like the occasion warrants having neatly pressed clothing.

4. I am a total list maker. I have lists for everything (groceries, chores, people to call, errands to run, projects for the future, what I need to post on my blog.)

5. I've never really liked to be hugged, but I've gotten better at doing it and accepting it. Sometimes when things are hard all you really need is a hug and for someone to tell you that things are going to be ok.

6. When I'm on the phone, I often times hang up before the goodbyes are finished being said. I have no idea why I do it, but I know that I do and it's probably really aggravating.

My Girls

I had these professional pics taken of the girls a week ago. There were 3 others, but I've put them on Christmas cards to send out. :) I'll post them on here after I mail out the cards.

Alliance Church Pumpkin Patch

Saturday, October 25, Kevin and Brooke and kids came to town to go to a Fall festival downtown. Instead of doing that we went to the Alliance Church Pumpkin patch. They had face painting, goats to pet, hayrides,bobbing for apples, pony rides, a maze for kids, cotton candy and a pumpkin patch. With the weather cooperating and being able to be with family, it was a great day.

Beauty and the Beast Costumes

Belle, the beauty (yes, she is wearing makeup)

Cogsworth, the clock (drawing this on her face was a pain)

McKinley's first tooth

McKinley got her first tooth today. I wasn't expecting it since Laynee didn't get a tooth til she was 13 months. Surprisingly, McKinley hasn't been too fussy about it.
