My friend Natalie tagged me to write 10 random things about myself. This will be easy because I am super random.
1. I love to sleep love love love love love it. Luckily my kids have inherited that from me. Good job boys.
2. I still hold the Rock Springs High School weight lifting record. I was able to squat 300 lbs. This was more than all but 4 boys on the football team.
3. In kindergarten I once took a huge garbage bag of stuff to show and tell and I took up the whole show and tell time. ( My mom told me I couldn't but when she was in the bathroom I opened the front door and hid it in the bushes and picked it up on my way to school).
4. I had a paper route from the time I was 12-15. One day on my route I was walking past a huge weed in someones yard and found 2 dollars and then on the way to school I looked under the same weed and there was 2 more dollars.
5. This one is kind of gross but interesting at the same time. I can peal off my lip skin at least once a day. I can sometimes pull it off in one long strip. I know it's gross I can't help it.
6. I have double jointed thumbs. I can make it so they are backwards. I can also pop my hip out of joint and back in.
7. I'm afraid to tell you all this one but most of you already know. I hate it when people whistle. It's like nails on a chalk board to me. This hatred came from working with this girl at baskin robbins who would whistle all the time. Not a good loud whistle but an airy weak whistle through her teeth. I cringe just thinking about it.
8. My top 3 most embarrassing moments have to do with my underwear.
9. I'm only 4 feet 10 1/2 inches tall. My mom used to tell people I got a handicap scholarship to college. Thanks mom I really appreciate that one.
10. Last but not least Kevin caught me falling in the ocean on video. I will attach it for your viewing pleasure.

I tag Brittany, Kim, Heather( if you still have your blog you made for class) , Emily (my cousin) and Melita since you haven't posted anything in forever.

Swine Flu

It's official we all have the swine flu. We took Ben and Nate to instacare on Sunday (because our kids never can get sick during the week when we can go to our regular Doc) and they tested Ben for the swine flu and it came back positive. I have been sick since last Wednesday and then Nathan started getting sick Friday or Saturday. Kevin is just barely starting his sickness. Wish us luck in getting better. I hope and pray no one else gets this cause it's pure HELL.

This was the second of many trick or treating events that we went to. Here we have Ben, Mady, Hazel, Daxton, Nathan, Macie, Ellie, Jack and Spencer. We took them to the high school to trunk or treat. As you can tell Nathan just loved his costume again. I really need to rethink my costume ideas for this poor kid. Every year I spend hours on his costumes and he always just ends up being a puppy. Next year maybe I will just start out with a puppy but probably not. I'm a slow learner.

Here is Nathan and Ashton at the Alphagraphics party again Nathan is super happy to wear McQueen. These boys are so cute.
Here is Kevin wearing the stop sign I made him. It was supposed to be a theme but I didn't end up making a costume for me or Ben. Oh well.
This is Ben as a ghost at Kevin's work party.

This picture makes me laugh. About 10 minutes after all the kids left trick or treating I get a knock on the door thinking it was some trick or treaters nope just my little tator. He was done after only 5 houses. Kevin said he just sat in the middle of the road and said he was done.
Here is Ben on Halloween dressed like a skeleton. Isn't he so cute !!!
Here are the Payne kids. They came here to go out to dinner with us for Jana's b-day. So they went trick or treating here. My sister always makes awesome costumes.
Here is Jana as Minnie Mouse. She went with the kids trick or treating since she bought a costume for our Family party that we didn't have. Oh well she still looked cute.
We usually have this awesome Halloween party with my family with tons of costumes, candy, games, and scary things. This year no such luck it was canceled :( So what did the Gibsons do instead? We had a party of our own. Our friends came over Friday and carved pumpkins. It was really fun and we had some awesome pumpkins. Kevin decided he was bored so he skinned his pumpkin that's why it looks so creepy. I can't believe we actually got a picture with us and all the kids.
Here are all the kids minus the 2 babies (Ben and Lucy). This is tator and most of his playgroup friends. I just love how Hazel is making Daxton cry. It reminds me of how Macie used to make Tator cry all the time and sometimes still does. That was just some of our busy Halloween adventures. Now I'm at home sick with 2 sick boys. We think we all have the swine flu. Fun for us. Can't wait til next year. HAPPY HALLOWEEN.
