I'm Thankful For...

my husband
my three wonderful boys
the job that my husband has
a roof over our heads and food that we can put on our table
our extended family
the work that I am able to do from home
getting to watch my niece and nephew
gas prices dropping below $1.75 ;o)

Most of all I am thankful that Jesus paid the price for my sins. Thanksgiving (in my opinion) is a wonderful way to lead into the Christmas Season.

AT&T Update :o)

Well, when I called their customer service center, a nice and calm man answerered the phone. I didn't give him much of a chance to say anything because I wanted him to know what had a happened and what I expected.

1) I want to know who cancelled my husband's cell phone
answer: it was cancelled at the store where you bought. I replied with, "They said they didn't know what happened and that it was a computer thing." He apologized about 5 times.

2) reactivate it

3) I want a decent credit applied to my account.
I am going to credit your account $38.50 (half of this months bill). 5 more apologies.

I was happy that he was able to take care of it so quickly. I also told him that it wouldn't have been that big of a deal if the people at the store were able to tell me who did it and why and been able to reactivate my phone instead of working all weekend. Especially since it is Brian's work phone and someone from work was trying to get a hold of him today. I know because I answered his phone this afternoon. At least it is over. This is the only issue I have ever had with AT&T and I don't expect it to happen again. We like them because of their rollover (we currently have 2500 unused minutes) and I expect us to never have to pay an outrageous bill because we go over in minutes. However, if this happens again I will be terminating my contract and expecting them to pay the early cancellation fee.

Brian came home from work yesterday and told me his phone needed to be taken into AT&T because it wasn't working. After dinner I headed in. The guy got on his computer did his thing and said, "that number has been canceled."
I didn't do it. My husband didn't do it. So who did it?? Guess what, they couldn't tell me how one of the lines on our account got canceled. And, they couldn't do anything to help me. Nothing. I have to wait until Monday to call customer service. I thought that was what the people in the store were for. UGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!! Let's hope they offer to credit my account a pretty penny because this is one very very unhappy customer.

A few posts in one

Just had to throw in a picture of Peyt and his toofer grin. He has 6 teeth and one glorified blood blister. I noticed a black spot on his gum the other day and called the dentist. They told me to bring him in (luckily Nicole had the day off, I only had my kids) just make sure it wasn't something bad. Peyton enjoyed playing in the waiting room. He has been to the dentist office before but only to go for his brothers appointments. As soon as they called his name he started screaming. And continued to do so until we left. The dentist took one look and said, "He has a glorified blood blister." It should go away when the molar sitting behind it, that caused this mess to begin with, breaks though. I just need to watch it and make sure it doesn't get white edges and start looking infected.

She takes good care of her little brother.

I've been meaning to post this for a week. Brian went out duck hunting one morning and brought home these guys. Peyton was thrilled and wanted to pet and play with them. His new favorite animal is a duck. Daddy cleaned them up and cooked them up. Casey wasn't to sure about the duck but ate it (no seconds for him). Peyton liked it. Michael couldn't stay away from it. Kept asking Daddy for more and ate just about all of it. Daddy came home Sunday from duck hunting and Michael asked Daddy if brought home duck for dinner. Sadly, Daddy didn't get anything. Maybe next time.

Happy Birthday Auntie Oley

We love you Auntie!!

Michael, Casey and Peyton

sorry, it's a little dark and Peyton isn't in the picture.

out of the mouth of Cas

Heard from the back of my van. Not harm is intended. Remember he is only 3 (almost 4)

Casey: mommy Isa is black.

Me: Yes, she is.

Casey: I want to be black.

Me: Sorry Cas, you are white.

Casey: No, I am black like Isa. :o)

Such a silly little boy.

Cowboy Cas
Summer of 2008
This is a classic Casey. Such a goofball. He was so PROUD of his new cowboy hat.
We had just started taking the boys to ride horses on Wednesday nights.
Casey was having a blast and wanted a cowboy hat, so we got him one.

New Friends

Last night we went to Joe's to look for some duck decoys for Daddy. We found a box of 12 for a decent price and got them. Peyton loves the ducks. He cried when we took them away so that he could go to bed. Pouty lip and everything. It was hilarious. I did manage to capture some photos of Peyton with his new friends and a short video. I hope you all enjoy.

Here is the video of Peyton. He is saying Quack, and buh buh (bye bye). I tried for the hello but he got distracted by Daddy's duck call.

Michael with his mohawk. You can even see "Africa" on his forehead. It is a burn that he received from Grandma's house. It is gone now.

Oh Me Oh My

I must say that I am not happy with the outcome of the recent election but it is what it is. Even though Obama got the electoral votes it was somewhat reassuring to see that in the national poll it was fairly close. Obama just won all the states he needed to. I found it frustrating that they were calling the states when only one percent of the votes were in at the time.
I am hoping that the AP is wrong in the Governors Race for Washington. They are saying that Gregoire beat Rossi and only 55% of the votes are in. I don't believe it. How do they know that the majority of the rest of the votes aren't for Rossi. It isn't like Gregoire has a 20% + lead on Rossi. I don't think WA can handle 4 more years with her in office. I've said what I needed to and will now leave it be.

The things he says

Peyton is becoming quite vocal these days. He has added a few sounds/words to his vocabulary and it is so much fun to get him to say them. While we were Trick or Treating he was trying so hard to say trick or treat. I would say "Trick or Treat" and he would say "ick eat" it was cute.
dada, mama, sho (shoes), choo choo, woof, meow, shhh shhh (with finger at mouth to hush us all) He is signing more, eat and help. He is growing up so quickly.
