Killer Klowns from Outer Space

(Wow, look at this, two blog entries in one day!)

Kirby's teacher gave him this green wig, and we had way too much fun with it! Isn't this picture freaky looking? It looks like a pyscho clown!
The green fuzz has taken over my children!

The Wild Farm Adventure!

Kirby and I got to go to Wheeler Farm for a field trip. Here is our photographic journey. I did my best to limit how many photos I put on here!

Kirby makes a friend. Do ya think he'll get swine flu after this?

Look! A real live chicken! So this is what a proper chicken coop looks like!

Beef. It's what's for dinner!

I have a collection of outhouse pictures. My grandma got me started on it!

Kirby and his friend after we told him what those funny seats were for!

Yep, you can tell I've worked at too many photo studios!

A rare picture that I'm actually in! Kirby looks out of it!

Getting on the busI'm not sure what Kirby was doing, but here he is on the bus on the way home!

Hi-ho, hi-ho it's off to work I go!

(This picture really has nothing to do with this post. I just got flowers from our anniversary, and thought this post needed some photos!)

With today's economy in the toilet, I know a lot of people worried about their job situation. Us included. Murphy told dad that he should just get fired from his job, then he can be an astronaut. Kirby thinks dad should get a job at Wal-Mart, then we could see him when we go shopping. I've come up with my own list of job ideas, if worse comes to worse. Here they are:
1. Become a photographer for Play Girl Magazine! (Although the pictures would all be out of focus from laughing too hard, I’d get what’s known as “camera shake”!)
2. Become a belly dancing wedding photographer! I could shimmy while taking pictures of the cake, the first dance and so on…( again, I’d probably get camera shake!)
3. Collect all the dandelions out of our yard, then make dandelion jelly and sell it!
4. Write an 800 page book about my cat. I’ll title it “Memoirs of my Cat”.
5. Make something out of all the soda cans in our garage. We’ve got two large bags full, and we just can’t quit make it to the recycling center. (Actually Jared’s already started making things, we’re calling it “recycled art”, now we just need a venue to sell this stuff!)
6. Find a way to make money by playing Spider Solitaire! I’ve played it so much lately, that I’m now a pro!
7. Buy some spiky shoes and aerate lawns with them.
8. Brush up on my palm reading skills. I do have a couple of books on palmistry!
9. I could also tell card fortunes!
10. Spend hours at the DI going through junk, and then re-sale it on E-bay.
There you have it! Tammy's way of relieving stress! Gotta love creative writing!
And here's another picture of the flowers, with my cat! I could always sale cat posters!

I won!!!!

I actually won a game of pool tonight! This is the first time I've ever won, I actually got the 8-ball to go into the pocket that I designated! It was exciting. That was the first game Jared & I played. The 2nd game, Jared won. By the third game, I got bored. I managed to get the que-ball in the hole, (more than once!) and Jared won that one by a landslide. Just thought I'd report that I actually won!

We also went to the Zen center. It was interesting. Although at first, everyone was just sitting there, being quiet (supposedly meditating). After 10 minutes of this, I was starting to get concerned that this was going to be the whole hour and half meeting! After 15 minutes, some dude that looked like the leader showed up. I was glad, but then he just sat down and meditated too. After 20 minutes I was thinking how I could quietly get up and leave.....luckily there was this gong at 30 minutes, and then the discussion began. It was interesting. It was more of a discussion about Zen than the actual practise. I think for now I'll stay a Mormon-Taoist!

Jr. bites the dust

October 2007-April 2009

Kirby's pet rat Jr. has passed away. (No, the cat did not get him, as far as we can tell, it was from natural causes).
Jr was a great pet rat. He never bit anyone, and was the main attraction of Murphy's room. Many a child was amazed and enjoyed playing with the rats.

A memorial service will be held tomorrow evening in the back yard. Jr is survived by his brother Tiger, and will be mourned by his owners, Murphy & Kirby.

So long Jr., may the cheese in heaven be a tastey treat for ya!
