We had never seen Harold and the Purple Crayon on TV... how fun. No commercials during the show. The ones we saw were at the beginning and the end and they were for things like iPhones. Very family friendly.
Do You HuLu? What is your favorite show?

Where do you blog?
Where do you recommend I switch to?
What features do you love the most over there?
Can you hear my frustration?

We eat it on yogurt, or as cereal... or just plain, actually -- it makes a great snack!!
5 cups of quick oats -- OK -- so I use the old fashioned oats I get from the co-op
1/2 c dry milk
cinnamon - I put tons on
3/4 c brown sugar
1/3 c EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
1/3 c honey
You can add almonds or nuts of your choice, or dry fruit, or flax seed. I had nothing exrra -- so I added nothing. OK -- so I had flax seed, but I was too lazy to grind them.
In a baking pan, mix oats, dry milk, cinnamon, nuts or flax seed, if you choose.
In saucepan mix brown sugar, EVOO and honey. Bring to a boil, pour over dry mixture, stir well.
Then bake in 350° over for 20-25 minutes ( or longer). Stirring about every 5 minutes. To help me with this -- since I am easily distracted... I use 2 timers. Yes I do too.... quit laughing - but my granola doesn't get burned that way... so there.
Take out of oven add dry fruit pour out unto waxed paper then cool. . Store in airtight container.
It will take about 20 minutes to crunch up... but it will. Don't eat it all while it's gooey -- it's even better crunchy. LOL
So -- now tell me how you use granola? Do you make your own? What do you add to it?
ENJOY!! We love this recipe and hope you will too.

Milo turned 8 on the 17th. I'm such a spacey mother that I only put 7 candles on his birthday cake. What is wrong with me?? See -- I told you yesterday I didn't want my kiddos to grow up -- I'll just put less birthday candles on their cake every year -- see if that keeps them from getting older. I doubt it.
Well Grandpa and Grandma... enjoy the singing. (Especially loved Wayne's, "And any more.")

We have a swimming pool... "easy peasey... we'll have a pool party", I thought. Just so happens it was FREEZING that day in August. We had the weirdest summer weather this year. So... they just did a polar plunge and then played around a bit. One boy played in that COLD water for a really long time. Maybe too long? He was practicing floating... his mother would be proud... isn't he doing a great job?
Several friends brought their appetites. We had pizza, chips, dip, gatorade and ice cream cake from the DQ. It was a BLIZZARD cake... oh my heavens. They are delicious!
Other friends brought their air-soft guns. They shot at targets until the pizza was done cooking. Then Mansel opened presents. After that he took his new air-soft gun outside and joined the fun shooting at targets.
I'm pretty sure Mansel had a good time. I can't believe he is 10. Something I noticed about him tonight... while we were watching football -- he could make intelligent comments about what was happening during the game. :sigh: I just am NOT OK with the fact that my kids are growing up. I want them to remain babies... until they are about 21... then they can immediately grow up and leave me in peace. LOL... I know -- won't happen. So -- if they must grow up -- let's celebrate with some pizza and ice cream. °Ü°

I bet you thought I was going to give away a gift card... I'm too cheap for that. Sorry --
Wowza!! Here is a girl, and her name is Stephanie. I don't know her from Adam... but she is giving away a $200 gift card to Best Buy.
I don't really need anything from Best Buy... but I'll take it anyway.
You know me... I love free things.
If I blog about it -- I get a 2nd chance. So - I'm just using you readers... I'm using you to get a 2nd chance to win something free. Isn't that horrible?? Why do they ask us to be so deceitful? Well -- I'm just gonna tell ya -- straight out. I'm using you to get a 2nd chance to win $200.
How does that make you feel?
After you tell me... head on over to Stephanie's at Totally Together Reviews and sign up for YOUR chance to win the gift card... then you can blog about it and get a 2nd chance. LOL Unless you are my friend BETH who only reads blogs and doesn't actually HAVE a blog... then you only get one chance. (I've been nagging telling her to get a blog - so I'LL have something to read!) °Ü°
Oh, I lied -- you can twitter about it... or what ever it is that you call it. You know -- that place where all the twits gather. I don't twitter. It used to be a bad thing to be called a TWIT... now everyone must want to be called a twit while they twitter... who knows? Not me. So -- I won't get three chances to win, because I'm not a twit. But if you are -- then you can have even more chances of winning.
What are you doing here still reading??? Go sign up. You've only got until November 15th.

Friday we went as a family to the CHS Homecoming Assembly, where the team was honored, then we went to the parade, then ate dinner with the team mates who came back home to remember, and then on to the football game. One of the coaches said he will get out the 1989 tapes to show the current team, so they can see what it takes to be a winning team.
I'm glad they kiddos got to see their dad in his prime. Honored, remembered, lauded, praised! What fun. The video is long, but it's mostly so his kids and I can remember this day.
