I know that there is an Autumn recipe thing going on in which Dy has asked us to post but I can't do it right now. I suffer from a condition called laziness which makes getting off of the couch very difficult. I will do it over the weekend. Promise.

Before my condition flared up, I was able to make it up the stairs to put some pictures on the computer. Over the weekend we took Jeremy for his birthday present, a new skateboard. He was uber excited about it as it was a complete surprise. We let him pick out everything from the deck to the trucks to the wheels.

Big air, baby!!

And here we have the side effects of skate boarding.

Yes, I am aware that it looks like we pushed him down the stairs.

Onto the backyard...

Today Kevin helped John put the roof on his house. John says that next week he will lay his hardwood floors. I tried to talk him into tile but he has his own vision.

And this one!

"Mewwy Chwistmas, mommy!" he exclaimed as he showered the ground with saw dust. Merry Christmas, Jo-Jo!

Last but not least, a blueberry muffin...

... and a stud muffin.

Love you, baby!

Look to the finish!

Wow! The boys are getting so big!!

Ilove the pictures of your son and his building projects. Inspiring!

My son does the skate board thing and also he loves to scare me to death and take jumps on his bike. He came in the house 2 days ago with blood running down his leg, "Look Mom, look, my leg is bleeding. Again." Knock on wood and send up lots of prayers of thanks, he hasn't broken anything yet.

Sure, Crissy, here's the recipe.

Go to Costco, head to the back of the store.
Follow the signs marked, "Bakery." Grab the 12 pack of blueberry muffins, head to the front of the store and pay.
Go back home, make coffee and partake!

Forget the blueberry muffin recipe, I want the stud muffin recipe! haha I'm kidding of course. You crack me up Laney.

What a great skateboard and great battle scars as well Jeremy!

Wow, John is quite the builder, maybe by the time we're ready to build he'll be in full business. ;-)

And Joe is SO cute! Mewwy Chwistmas Jo!

Stud muffin :o) Clever girl.

Tim Gunn was on Regis and Kelly as a co-host this morning. He was great! They made him try on some crocs and he was such a good sport! Kelly told him to 'Make it work!"

He was one of the better fill ins I have ever seen on that show!

Go Tim!
