Dana had her last vb game this week,unfortunately they did not make the play offs which is really stinks. But the nite before their play off game they had pasta nite (which they do before every game) and they painted the rock in front of South. It is completely legal and no cops will be on my deck! It's sort of sad around here now that there is no games to go to. Every weekend and week since August we were going to Dana's games, now it's all over and we are pretty much bored (and it's only been 2 days!).
Anyway it was a great season and we will miss the Seniors! They
become part of your family! There is always next year!

I always knew that Cameron was a genius with quick mind (can you tell he's the only boy?).
Last week Cameron came home from school telling me that a girl next to him always cheats off his paper. So he purposely wrote down the wrong answer on his paper, waited until the girl copied off of him, then when she was done and not looking, erased the wrong and put in the right answer. I didn't know it that was morally right or wrong but I thought it was very clever! So I didn't show any response but inside I was like "all right Cam, serves her right" :)

I was at Target today (what a surprise!) and I was minding my own business in the cosmetic section. A man around 40 or 45 was in the same aisle I was the whole time, buying and looking at makeup. He was particular about his selections. Do you think it was for him? Do men buy makeup for their wives? I thought it was so funny I kept watching him. He probably thinks I was the weirdo! I would never send Paul to buy my makeup-I would end up looking like a hooker! Not really! I just hope that the man's Dusty Orchid works out for him ok! Sorry no pictures of the man-someone might recognize him, then his secret would be out! (Out of the makeup bag)! :)

So I was on the computer tonight when Dana came up saying I had to go downstairs. The police were on my deck waiting to talk to me. Great!! I guess Dana and her friends went
to Erfert park tonight and were rolling down the big sledding hill. There was no naughty stuff just innocent rolling down the hill. The worse part was this is what they were dressed like. I had no idea they went out loking like that, so when the cop was talking to me, I could barely keep from cracking up looking at them. Dana had written "Hill Queen" on her forehead backwards since she wrote it looking in a mirror!
She should be given a ticket for being such a dork. He was just warning us that girls shouldn't be out at 10pm. The worse part for Dana was that he kept calling them little girls and she was 3 inches taller than him! Ha,ha-I guess if that's the worst they are out doing, I can't be too upset! Still will the worrying about your children ever stop.

On a sad note, my mom's best friend of almost 40 years died last Thursday. We couldn't make the trip for the funeral (she lived in New Jersey) because my mom broke her leg. I was also very close to her and her family. We grew up together when I lived in Florida (they lived in Florida at the same time). I miss her already. It's so weird not being able to pick up the phone and call someone when you are used to doing it for the past 20+ years.
The real tear jerker came when Cameron said his prayers the night we found out she passed away. Now, Cameron prays the same prayer every meal and every night all the time. Except this night he added at the end-"And please help Sheryl" I told Cameron that she didn't need help anymore because her cancer ended and she was with Jesus now. So then he prayed with tears in his eyes "Then be nice to her" Oh, out of the mouths and hearts of small children.

Leah had a small party on Friday for her birthday. I took her and her friends to Art4Soul in Homewood to paint pottery. We had a great time. Leah painted a penguin, it looks so cute. We can't wait to pick up the finished work!! On the 22nd, we will have a combined family birthday party for her and Cameron. His birthday lands on Thanksgiving this year, Bummer for him!
I hope the weather holds out nice since we are doing an outdoor/Halloween theme with pumpkins and fall stuff. We'll see-I heard snow this week! :( Then we are done with birthdays for a month or two!

Did you ever have a day where you thought you were on Candid Camera? My whole night last night was that. It started at work when I was walking to the hospital gift shop to buy a ten cent package of lemon-heads (that's all the money I had on me). Our gift shop is all glass walls with a sliding glass door. I was minding my own business (walking a little too fast), turned the corner and ran right into the glass door. The lady who worked there had locked up to take a break. A break, who needs a break from working in a gift shop at a hospital?!! I hit the glass so hard I left a complete face print (glasses included) on the glass. I also injured my left knee and arm! I was so embarassed because everyone in the lobby saw and heard the loud banging! I started laughing and crying at the same time while wiping my nose prints off the door! How embarassing! All I could hear in my head was Paul laughing (even though he wasn't there)!
My whole department heard the noise and ran down to Public Safety to ask for the tape to send to Funniest Home Videos to win the $10,000 off of my making a *** of myself!
If that wasn't bad enough, when I got home from work, I was watching Oprah at nite, again minding my own business. I heard a loud truck sitting by our house, so I watched it. The truck barrelled around the corner and circled the park, again stopping across from our house. By now I was certain that they were up to no good.Again they pulled away, except after they left, not 3 seconds later a huge flash of light appeared and a huge shooting noise sounded. I thought they shot me thru my window. I crawl yelling into our room to which Paul said calmly "what was that?" He then proceeded to tell me that it was just a M-80 firecracker. I still don't know what it was, but I was up all nite playing Barney Fife to protect my neighborhood. I didn't sleep a wink.
Do these things only happen to me or what?!!

Dad C-These are for you to enjoy (and others,of course) We went to the White Sox game a few weeks ago. We were 12 rows up from the Sox dugout. They were awesome seats. Paul and I were shown on the Kiss-Cam, and so was Leah. I think we ate all the junk there more than we watched the game! By the way, Melanie-that is a giant pickle Leah is eating. Off all the food she had to pick from, she chose a smelly pickle. I chose Cotton Candy, of course!!
