Below you will see Reagan's boring room. Today I am going to start the transformation of this sleeping area into a brightly colored, probably overwhelmingly busy area. Reagan picked out the fabric and the paint for her room. When it's all done, hopefully this week, I will post new pictures. Be prepared to have your sunglasses ready...it may be blinding.
There's no time to waste...off to start the laundry and painting prep work. Here's a sneak peek of the wild colors. Can't wait to show you the final product!
I almost forgot to mention Olivia's procedure tomorrow morning. Please remember Olivia in your prayers. Tomorrow morning we will be down at Children's Hospital at 7:15am for her endoscopy. Please pray for guidance for the medical staff, peace for the family and protection for Olivia. Thank you!
My thought for today: What random act of kindness are you going to do today?

Two monkey cakes, really does life get any better for a 7 year old? Below is tonight as Reagan is ready to dive into her DQ ice cream cake. We had a little celebration with all the intown family.
Here is the other monkey cake. No I did not make it this year. My neighbor volunteered her services and since I have been sick again, I took her up on the offer. Saturday we took 4 little girls bowling...the high score was 113. Not too bad!
I am ready to fall into bed. Tomorrow is a busy day.
--Orchestra BEFORE school
--Laundry day (there's way too much as usual)
--MSHS softball game
--Softball team and families meeting at a great wing place in town.
Somewhere in there we need to practice the cello, do homework, read and have some quality time. :)
Serve someone "undeserving" this week. It will make your day bright (their day too)!

Floss her teeth for her.............take the used floss and roll it up into a ball and have her smell it. Explain to her that her breath smells like that if she doesn't brush. Then wash your hands with some good antibacterial soap......cause used floss is gross.......
This is the gross thing I tell my patients age 7 and older that won't brush.There are bacteria bugs living in the plaque that grows on your teeth. They eat the sugar from the foods you chew and when they are full they poop out acid all over your teeth. This acid rots holes into your teeth and then I have to fix the holes. I save that for the kids that just won't listen any other way.......it works. Nobody wants poop in their mouth.
Ok, if that won't do it for you kiddos nothing will! I just read it to all 3 girls, we all decided to go brush right now in the middle of the day. Olivia wasn't as impressed, she said, "I don't have poop in my mouth!" rofl We all laughed!
My word for the day: floss

Michael Jackson tape (Thriller) 1
Box (tape player and radio) 1
Olivia Newton John tape (two-of-a-kind) 2
Bradley Doll 3
Cabbage Patch Doll 3
Anything Hello Kitty 2
10 or 15 speed bike 1
roller skates 2
ice skates 2
Record player 1
Polo top 1
Is that a riot or what? So I wanted a boom box and a record player, how funny! I ranked them so mom and dad would know which were the most important. Waterbed was in the first tier of gifts, didn't get that. Wonder what I did get that year. And who would believe that a kid would ask for money in the second tier. Guess I need to scrap this list if I can find a picture of me in elementary school. It's neat to see my handwritting. It's pretty neat and my spelling isn't very good...as if that would be any different than right now.
Yesterday I started my fall decorating. I planted 3 red mums outside, wish I could get 2 of the large ones from Sam's club again this year. Love those! I won't do much in the way of halloween decorating but when I'm all done my house will have a complete fall decor makeover.
My words for the day: pumpkin spice (and everything nice)

As you can see, the house has been scrapped and getting repainted. Here dad is taking out a tree. This week a new roof. Next week something else I'm sure. Like most people, preparing their house to sell means doing the little thing (or big) that you've meant to do for years. Mom didn't really want me to take this picture and she probably doesn't want it on my blog for the world to see but she doesn't have internet nor know how to access my page. Now with that said, one of my brothers will surely "tell" on me. :) When all is said and done (after we make at least 2 more trips down there) I will be sad to say good-bye to this old house. We moved in right after I turned one and this has been the place I call home for many years.
Dad has done everything in his power to slow the process of his disease but the fact of the matter is, there is no cure, yet. So right now he continues to make good health decisions, listen to his doc but lean on natural remedies and stay physically active. Moving into a smaller home with NO steps is a must for dad. I'm sure they will love their new home, if they don't kill each other first.
This bowl is here just for me...a reminder.

They really do listen to their coach but only if there aren't juice pouches and snacks in their hands. ha ha Here, the Comets come together for a post game pep talk after they too owned their opponent.

It is so easy for me to love on the people whom I already love. The ones who are lovable. The friends and family who love me back. It's great to love on them but that is not what we are instructed to do. After all, how hard is that anyway?

Guess we need to buy a music stand. I doubt Reagan will be willing to stand there day after day holding the book. ha ha
Can I just say how odd it is to have my daughter learning something that I know NOTHING about. Infact, both Emma and Reagan are learning things that I don't know...cello and soccer. I guess this is just the beginning. :)
