I think these Moose are getting to friendly..

I ran to Walmart and when I got home my kids told me that The moose came in the Yard while they were playing .. Thank Goodness the Neighbor was out there and told the kids to get behind her Truck until they leave. I guess Ben was frozen with fear and just stood there . As they were telling me this I felt sick inside. Just earlier today I felt I should tell Ben What to do in case he was out side and a moose came by. Did I do it No. Thank goodness there was no harm done.. MY stomach is still turning inside with all the what ifs..

I just had the pee scared out of me!!

I am still shaking.. I was sitting in my Family room sewing I had just got up and turned around and got the shock of my life! 2 moose looking in at me thru my picture window. I am suprised I did not scream... Of course I did what any good blogger would do I ran up stairs to get my Camera.. By the time I got back down stairs They were not By the family room I went into the girls room and they were walking past there Window . For as big as they are they sure move fast. So I did not get a good shot so I ran up stairs knowing I would be able to see them from the deck.. Yep I sure could they were right there in my back yard. At this point the Momma moose caught on to the fact that I was stalking her . She was not very happy that I was disturbing her nice morning stroll She definitely had her panties in a wad the back of her hairs were raised on her neck So I did not even dare open the back door and try to get a shot from the deck. I was not willing to risk finding out if moose could climb stairs. She kinda stopped her hoof and walked gracefully away. After I picked my jaw off the floor from watching this display I quickly took this pic of her marching off to the neighbors yard and into the forest to eat some bark off of the trees. The whole thing was just crazy.. BTWI don't live in the country I live in a subdivision in I guess you would call it Town I don't think you could consider where I live the city. LOL

Random post

To begin my total random post Dales aunt sent an email with this pic titled the snow fairy. I fixed the pic a little bit cuz I try to make this a pg blog. Ok I have to admit I had a ton of funny things running in my head when I first saw this pic . First one being blue balls (sorry for my bluntness) second one being what kinda bet did he loose and third Why? LOL

I came across this pic from Halloween 2005 I still say what the heck was I thinking .. What can I say had just started my 8th month of pregnancy and I thought it would be funny to dress up like a trailer trash Diva.. My Pg belly served me well as a beer gut..Third but not least my BFF from the 7th grade sent me this tag .. She thought it fit me well. I think she is way too sweet .. So Beth was I Smart, sassy and always classy in the 7th grade?
I guess I should get off the computer and get stuff done for this trip I am going on..
My Question of the day So do you want this snow fairy visiting your house?

Aurora Borealis

****Edidted***** This is my favorite post of 2008 I am playing along with TIP Junkies Talk to me tuseday. Go there and tak a peek at others best post of 2008.

Last night I got a phone call from Kadie just after I had gotten all snuggled in to my bed she was coming back into town and said the northern lights were amazeing and that I should go look out the window. I thought no way would I be able to see them. I went to the window anyways and saw nothing. I then decided to look out our back window and sure enough you could see the northern lights dancing there magic. I stood there in utter Awe at the beauty I was seeing. I was amazed at the different shapes and colors that were swirling across the night sky. The Aurora Borealis kept getting lower and lower it was almost like it was right on top of my house. I decided to enter the cold night as I stepped out on to my back patio I felt the magic take over. I started dancing with the lights . I somehow felt warm engulfed in their beauty. I felt the cool wind on my skin and as I danced with the lights. I swear I could here singing a soft sweet melody. My eyes were filled with tears as I just swayed to the unknown melody. I felt so many amazeing emotions at that moment. I soon realised I was not alone I felt that William and Marie were with me. I could see there silhouettes in the darkness I believe it was Marie that I heard singing. Nothing was said we all just were just there dancing with the lights. It was very reverent and magical all at the same time. It was almost like for that moment all was right with the world. I kept taking deep breathes as if I could some how breath in the magic and keep it deep with in me. I started to shiver from the extreme cold and the lights started to shift towards my neighbors house and I new for now the magic was over. I reluctantly went back in my house got back into bed and just laid there wondering if I dreamed the whole thing.
I have heard many different legends concerning the northern lights. One being that the lights are spirits of Children playing ball . How sweet is that.. I can see how people would think that the lights are the spirits of those who have passed before them. For me it was definitely a spiritual experience.
My Question of the day.. Have you ever seen the Northern lights? My other question do you know of any of the legends associated with them?

Were are the days going?

I cant believe that in only 3 days we will be seeing ghouls and goblins haunting the streets in hopes of collecting tons of yummy treats. I love Halloween so much I always have I still dress up every year . Thats probably my favorite part of Halloween dressing up. My costume this year is great.! I share later this week what I am going to be.

Edited.. I took the pic of the guy in the pizza box off. I looked at my blog and decided it was just too scandalous for a PG blog LOL

I don't think many people can pull this costume off . I think it's kinda yuck and fascinating at the same time.....

I only have 4 more days until i fly off to go shopping for a week!! I can hardly wait to go buy more useless crap!! keep adding to my list the things that I need. I think it looks more like a scroll than a list. LOL

Question of the day ?? Are you dressing up this year for Halloween?

Trisomy 18

Today I woke up checked my E-mails There was one from one one of my BFF's labeled Trisomy 18 I opened it up read what she had to say . She said she had met some one with a friend that is 18 weeks pg and they found out the baby has t-18 and would I be willing to talk to them. I thought OK . Then I got an email from a good friend of mine who host apron swaps.. The Email was titled Thank you. I opened it thinking it was a thank you for not forgetting to respond to the email I got telling me who my swap partner was. Instead it was an email thanking me for sharing Williams story and that her little niece was born with what they think is T-18 yesterday. She said there family had no clue that she was a special baby so as you can imagine there family is going threw a lot of emotions right now. She said when she saw her niece she looked like William.. My heart as you can imagine was just struggling for the heartache this family is going threw but was touched that My friend knew something about Trisomy 18 because of Williams web site..
If you can believe this i then got a email from the Trisomy 18 foundation asking people to spread the word about Trisomy 18 and the Trisomy 18 foundation. Do you think I am being told something or What!!! So Here I am writing on my Blog for the world to read..
So Here is a web site I found right after I found out about William It is just the basic knowledge about Trisomy 18
This is the website for the Trisomy 18 foundation . Please take the time to look up these web sites.
Hopefully none of you will never need this information but you just never know. Never in a million years did I think Trisomy 18 would ever effect my life. Heck I never heard Of Trisomy 18 until I found out William had it.

Do you believe in Ghost?

Ok I am not saying Whooo Whoo Or Boo you know spirits... I do i always have probably because I have always felt them hear them and sometimes see them... So it's never been strange for me.I acuttaly find it comforting to know that when people die there spirits are still around us.. Well whats my point you may ask? Well saturday while I was driving home from Anchorage I heard a voice say vear to the left now I said what I then heard Jenny veer to the shoulder now so I did with out thinking. I then looked over to the right and saw this women swerving into my lane. She had her head down and was messing with something in her car when she looked back up she realised she was in my lane and that she almost hit me. I could tell she had a scared look on her face she quickly got back in her lane and I got back in my lane. The scary part was that we were going down a hill at 70 miles an hour with a drop on the left side with no guard rails. Had I not heard my grandfather she would have surely hit me and I probably would have went over the side. I am so grateful I listened to the voice I heard. I believe that my Grandfather is my protector this is not the first time I have heard him warn me while I am driving. He once told me during a rainstorm to look there is a moose i the road. It was raining so hard that I would have never seen it until it was too late. I am so grateful for his warning both times.
I could probably write a book about the many experiences I have had with spirits. Sometimes after i have these experiences I am overwhelmed with how crazy it seams but I never once doubt that they are real.

So my question of the day is do you believe in spirits and have you ever had experiences with them?

Halloween goodness..

So I did not get my Halloween post posted yesterday life just got in the way. Shopping , bargains , My grandfather saved my life and a sick tummy, I will save the details for tomorrow's post. Now on to the Halloween goodness!!

First I want to share these delightful cards I made from some fun Halloween vintage clip art I found on THIS SITE I love vintage pictures and clip art. This is the first time I was brave enough to make cards with them.. They did not turn out to bad..Next I made these fun book marks I found at Activity Village.
They were super simple to make all you do is copy the book marks laminate them then cut them out punch a hole in the top the add trim and Halloween brads.. I made them to give to Madeline's extra class she goes to. I wanted to give them something fun that was not a sweet treat.

When I was at the grocery store a few days a go I saw these ghost peeps and thought my kids would like them in there hot coco.
When they came home from school on Friday I handed each of them a ghostly cup of COCO They all smiled even the teenagers.

Last but not least Me and Ben made these cute jackolanterns out of hostess snow balls they Were just so cute smiling back at us.

This coming week I will have some more Halloween goodness including the cutest apron i ever made and instructions on how to create your own.

I hope everyone is have a good Sunday. My question of the week kind of odd but thought I would ask any ways When do you all start decorating for Christmas?

My dorky moment!!

Okay I had my days mixed up I thought today was the Halloween party but I was wrong It is tomorrow. What a dork I am. The invite is right there on the right on my blog you think I would have been able to read the right day. So I will leave you with this fabulous poem by Edger Allen Poe and I will have my Halloween fun tomorrow.
So my question to you is am I the only one with dorky moments?

The Raven
by Edgar Allan Poe
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.`'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -Only this, and nothing more.'Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.Eagerly I wished the morrow; - vainly I had sought to borrow From my books surcease of sorrow - sorrow for the lost Lenore -For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels named Lenore -Nameless here for evermore.And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain Thrilled me - filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating`'Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door -Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door; -This it is, and nothing more,'Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,`Sir,' said I, `or Madam, truly your forgiveness I implore;But the fact is I was napping, and so gently you came rapping,And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door,That I scarce was sure I heard you' - here I opened wide the door; -Darkness there, and nothing more.Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before But the silence was unbroken, and the darkness gave no token,And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, `Lenore!'This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, `Lenore!'Merely this and nothing more.Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning,Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before.`Surely,' said I, `surely that is something at my window lattice;Let me see then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore -Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore; -'Tis the wind and nothing more!'Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,In there stepped a stately raven of the saintly days of yore.Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door -Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door -Perched, and sat, and nothing more.Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,`Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,' I said, `art sure no craven.Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the nightly shore -Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!'Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'Much I marvelled this ungainly fowl to hear discourse so plainly,Though its answer little meaning - little relevancy bore;For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being Ever yet was blessed with seeing bird above his chamber door -Bird or beast above the sculptured bust above his chamber door,With such name as `Nevermore.'But the raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only,That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did out pour.Nothing further then he uttered - not a feather then he fluttered -Till I scarcely more than muttered `Other friends have flown before -On the morrow will he leave me, as my hopes have flown before.'Then the bird said, `Nevermore.'Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken,`Doubtless,' said I, `what it utters is its only stock and store,Caught from some unhappy master whom unmerciful disaster Followed fast and followed faster till his songs one burden bore -Till the dirges of his hope that melancholy burden bore Of "Never-nevermore."'But the raven still beguiling all my sad soul into smiling,Straight I wheeled a cushioned seat in front of bird and bust and door;Then, upon the velvet sinking, I betook myself to linking Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous bird of yore -What this grim, ungainly, gaunt, and ominous bird of yore Meant in croaking `Nevermore.'This I sat engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing To the fowl whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom's core;This and more I sat divining, with my head at ease reclining On the cushion's velvet lining that the lamp-light gloated o'er,But whose velvet violet lining with the lamp-light gloating o'er,She shall press, ah, nevermore!Then, methought, the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer Swung by Seraphim whose foot-falls tinkled on the tufted floor.`Wretch,' I cried, `thy God hath lent thee - by these angels he has sent thee Respite - respite and nepenthe from thy memories of Lenore!Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe, and forget this lost Lenore!'Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'`Prophet!' said I, `thing of evil! - prophet still, if bird or devil! -Whether tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore,Desolate yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted -On this home by horror haunted - tell me truly, I implore -Is there - is there balm in Gilead? - tell me - tell me, I implore!'Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'`Prophet!' said I, `thing of evil! - prophet still, if bird or devil!By that Heaven that bends above us - by that God we both adore -Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn,It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels named Lenore -Clasp a rare and radiant maiden, whom the angels named Lenore?'Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'`Be that word our sign of parting, bird or fiend!' I shrieked upstarting -`Get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore!Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!Leave my loneliness unbroken! - quit the bust above my door!Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!'Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor Shall be lifted - nevermore
