Unfortunately I will be unable to follow all of the rules because I do not know 7 people with blogs, but I will do all of the people that I know and here are my oddities:

1. I have a fear of popping balloons.

2. It really annoys me when my eyebrows, or other peoples' are brushed the wrong way. Although, that also goes for my arm hairs as well. This is probably the weirdest. Like, I can't watch someone brush their eyebrows the wrong way without "fixing" my own eyebrows, even if they are okay.

3. I do not care for nuts in most desserts, like brownies or fudge. But, chocolate/peanut butter in combination is okay.

4. I am INCREDIBLY ticklish.

5. My hands are super squishy, like bendable almost.

6. I can't touch frosted glass, the thought of it makes my skin crawl.

7. I can't watch the movie, The Other Sister, without sobbing. Not tearing up, not tears running down my face, SOBBING to the point that the dollar theater security guard came and asked if Jennifer and I were okay, except that happens EVERY TIME!

Gramma's Visit

We have been having a FUN time with Gramma in town. Gramma has been taking turns keeping the boys at home. She took Michael to see Wall-E at the new theater and took him to see Playhouse Disney Live (play). This Saturday we had Cayden's first birthday party. We had fine dining with pizza, salad, and cupcakes. Cayden did an excellent job eating almost every last morsel of his cupcake, even requiring a bath before pictures. He was also given tons of fun presents that we will enjoy for a long time to come. Equally as exciting Bryan turned around his carseats tonight!!! Here is a little picture in case you are not on our email lists for pics. If you are not, and would like to be just shoot me an email.

Halloween went something like this:

We had dinner at Arby's . . . woo hoo! The "we" in this evening was: Bryan, Michael, Cayden, Jennifer, Nate, Anna, Ryan, and me. Then we went to "Hoopla" at Biltmore Baptist. What is Hoopla? It is basically a carnival with a LOT of nice people and CANDY. There weren't as many scary costumes, we weren't around anyone who smoked (not sure if no one did or we just got lucky), and people were VERY friendly . . . not my typical Halloween. There were probably 30 little games for the kiddos like ring toss, bean bag toss, soccer kick, rocket throw, ski ball, etc and after you played a game, you were instructed to take a handful of candy. We are not talking just about your average candy either. There were several top-of-the-line buckets of candy as well. There were also 5+ bouncy things. Michael only did one of those. But, it was much bigger than any of the ones he had done before so we were very proud of him. We also got to do a hay ride. There was a stage where they had lots of fun music and dancers that Cayden enjoyed a lot. For the animals lovers, there were donkeys, sheep, goats, bunnies, and a bull you could ride (note that we did not, that made me VERY VERY VERY nervous---flashbacks of the bull fight I attended in Mexico, thanks Dad). We came away from ait all with a LOAD of candy, big smiles, frozen hands, and a plan to return there next year. We love Hoopla!
