I had worked for a couple hours on a video that i was going to post today. jenny had warned me that I need to save the movies frequently, but i thought no, that is just her crappy computer that keeps freezing. Mine would never do such a thing. I had finally finished (an what a fine piece of work) I clicked on publish to my computer and...nothing...the program was not responding...would you like you close the program?...you will lose unsaved changes...wait for program to respond...I thought I would just wait. I waited for about 30 minutes...not responding...would you like to restart the program?...you will lose any unsaved changes...
Well, that is why I am posting my review of 27 Dresses. I thought it was great. I am going to give it five embroidered sweaters. Anything that makes me laugh out loud in public gets five. I would like to point out that Jenny and I laughed out loud at the same thing, but the usually very enthusiastic audience was silent.

do do do do do do do do do do do
I have spent a lot of time reflecting on the roller coaster that has been my relationship with candy. It has been a good friend that never leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I love the way it makes me feel while I am eating it, but I hate the guilt and belly distention that come when I am done. I am looking forward to the change, but I will always have a soft spot in my heart for the Reeses, Twixs', Yorks, Hot Tamales, Licorice, Peanut Butter M & Ms, and chocolate with nuts in it. I'm sure I am leaving someone out, but I love you all, and I will miss you.
Director's note: There are a couple of periods of silence in the movie. Video taping candy in public (I guess) is strange to some people, and I didn't want to share my last words to those sweet things with an audience.

Once a lass met a lad. You're a gentle one said she.
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah if you love me for me.
I don't know what all the fuss is about? Having a baby is a beautiful thing. This is a great age for her to realize what it is like to have to be responsible for someone besides yourself. I am sure she will...you know what, she probably won't.

Most original idea
(Tom is adding these categories against katies wishes)
Most Likely to succeed
Worst taste in music
Best Violet video(this way I'm sure to win)
Best mom jeans
Most neglected kids
Most junk mail
Most condiments in their fridge
Longest list that no one will respond to
(back to you katie)
Now, to make this work I am going to need everyone to vote. (if you would like to remain anonymous, you can send it directly to my email firstname.lastname@example.org ) The winners will be announced January 1st ish. Also, if you would like to add a category let me know as soon as possible so everyone can vote on it. Rules, Rules, Rules, no getting offended!!! This for fun. You don't have to vote for me just because it is my idea (very original). Since it is my idea, i have the final say on which categories will actually appear in my awards blog. ( I thought I might need to add this after seeing the things Tom added.)
This is going to be the year I really stick to my resolutions. I have the added incentive of a class reunion coming up. Now that is motivation. Sara and Morgan, you are the same age as I am. I don't know if you realized it has been ten years already. My how time flies. I remember when...(this service is available to all the bloggers, a chance to reminisce. You can reflect on anything you want. Only good memories allowed ...you're welcome.) I am going to miss those green rice crispy treats.

I just wanted everyone to have the chance to be with us in our most important events, and since I don't have room for you all (or refreshments that I want to share) you are all invited via my blog. I know it is a bit corny, but I am working with a very limited music selection. Frankly, I am surprised that Barry Manilow Christmas was in my collection, but for times like this i am thankful. I had a "cooler" Christmas CD, but it just wasn't working. It was setting the wrong mood. Not that Barry isn't cool, he definitely has his moments, I just don't think Christmas is his holiday. No offense to all those Manilow lovers out there.
Did anyone else notice that my kids are always in their pajamas? That is the way we roll at our house. We don't get dressed unless we have to. Even then, not always. Really,pajamas go with everything, including Christmas tree decorating.
I hope this puts everyone in the mood for Christmas. I am pretty sure this is going to be the best one so far. (I think I say that every year) Now, lets get some egg nog and some decent Christmas music. Anyone up for a little mexican?... train that is.
Tom doesn't think this is funny, so look forward to some real belly laughs (his words) from Tom. Coming soon...

A couple of people I would like thank, that made this video happen. First, Jenny in her infinite wisdom. I couldn't have done it without her technical support. I would also like to thank Barbie for lending her voice. It was either Barbie or Morrissey, and I just wasn't feeling "Hairdresser on Fire"ish. (Tom had all of our other CD's in his car.) I think it came out just fine. I am just glad Barbie is always there when I need her. Since I didn't have any Christmas music readily available, I will complete my first video to be viewed at a later date. (You can wait.)
About this video:
I found all of these pictures when I was downloading them onto the computer. Hazel was very proud of what she had done. Each picture has a story. I just don't know how it goes.

This picture was taken just moments ago. This is for all the Morgan groupies that just can't get enough. I heard that John Mayer was going to take pictures of his dinner, and post it on his blog...you know you want to know what I had for dinner, but I am not going to fill your sick needs!

Who's a happy baby? You are.
The kids after a long night of trick or treating. By this point we had lost the wings, masks, and crowns. Luckily they kept their smiles on.
Atticus fell asleep before we could take his picture in his costume, so he dressed up first thing in the morning. I think he was worried he was going to have to wear this from now on. He started to cry when he saw me coming with it
Our big boy Thomas finally got into preschool. He didn't really want to go at first, but he wouldn't stop talking about it when I went to pick him up. He loved everything about it.

Here is Atticus!! He is growing like a weed. I have an appointment for him on Thursday, and I am curious to see how much he has gained. When I weigh myself with him, he is about 12 pounds. When I take him out places no one believes his is only 5 weeks old.
I didn't have any good Easter pictures of the kids on this camera, so I thought I would send a few more of the family pictures.
