So the movie was A-MAZ-ING!!! Best kiss EVER!!!! It made the four inches of snow that we had on the car when we got out worth it. I'm sure there are those that will go and hate it...but if you go in knowing there is no way a movie can completely encompass a book you can't be disappointed. And I wasn't! Can't wait to see it again.

playin around

So I've been playing around with some new images I've gotten from a very talented lady from etsy. I'm not sure that I *love* my new blog header...but until Jeri gives me some hints on what to do then this what I have for now. It's cute for my etsy shop but I'm not sure that I love it for my blog. I did get my drawing back from Alexis of a rooster that I had drawn and I'm thinking that maybe I'll do something with that...who knows.

So lets see...what is happening in the not so exciting life and times of the Oxenrider family...ahhh...Von's birthday is Thursday! The big 3-5!! Whoa, how did go from 23 to 35???? Yikes. Oh well, can't stop time. So my etsy shop has been going slow, but it has been going. I've sold THREE things...I get so excited when I make a sale you'd think I was winning the lottery! Fun stuff! My amazing friend Michelle Burry is going to be starting a shop soon and I can't WAIT to see what she puts up...this probably means I'm going to go broke because her shizzle will be so cute!

So Kien was drawing pictures today of his family and I decided to take a shower. While I was in there he came running back and said, "mommy, you wanna tatoo?" I said "no thanks Kien...I'm kinda in the shower right now"...thinking he must have found one of those ones you apply with water. WRONG! I peeked my head out of the shower and he had given himself MANY "tatoos" up and down his arm...his hand...his leg...his tummy..."NICE" I thought to myself. Note to self...don't let Kien play with pens while I'm in the shower...and don't direct him on a path of tatooing...not such an artist yet.

Another a good story...we went to target and of course the first thing Ethan says is..."can I get a toy?" "no ethan...we are not buying toys today" "can we look at them?" he says..."sure" I say. So in the toy section of Target he brings this toy up to me..."mom...if I get this toy it will be the only toy ever that I will get. I won't want another toy from here EVER..." *yeah...riiight* Can't blame a kid for trying!

Oh...some exciting news! my mom is going to start crocheting my little flowers so I don't have to keep buying them. AND...her's are soooo much cuter than ones I would mom rocks! She sent me a photo of them tonight and Von goes..."wow...those are tight"...what??? did my husband just say "tight" WTF??? That's like Fran's dad saying "that's tits Fran"...anyway...they are pretty sweet.

Well, i really should go to bed now...have a great day everyone...

I don't even know how to express my excitement!!!! Our country has shown how ready we are for a real change. McCain ran a good race and I appreciate everything he stands for, especially his love of his country...but tonight Americans spoke loudly,
and I am proud to have been one of those voices! Wow, what an amazing night in history...and I got to be a part of it!!!
