Then they told him that since he is going paperless that Progressive will plant a tree in the rain forest for him. I thought that was pretty cool so I wanted to share. I bet other insurance companies do something similar, so check it out!

Since I took the kid's to the pumpkin patch yesterday, I thought I would post last years pumpkin patch pictures for the FFF.
We always take the kid's to the Flower Mound Pumpkin Patch. It's totally free and I like to be able to take picture's of the kid's next to all of the character cut-outs.

Anyways, since she is all black and we found her right before Halloween we named her Samantha, like the witch on Bewitched. She is just a little sweetie. She likes to curl up against you, particularily your face, and go to sleep. The kid's are going crazy over her, they just love her. But she will get to stay an outdoor cat. Her and Caleb don't get along at all, so she can't stay inside.

You can click on any of the pictures to make them bigger.
In this pic my dad is the one in the center holding the teddy bear. His brother Gary is to his right. My paternal great grandparents are sitting on the left and right. The man standing up on the right's name was Larry and I actually visited him and his family in N. Dakota for my 15th birthday.
That was when I learned there were no more male O'Brien's to carry on my family name. That is why my son Anthony's last name is O'Brien, not Bagby. The baby is my dad's little sister.
This picture was taken exactly 3 months before he died.
Here she is with her husband Henry (who I love and miss Happy late Birthday to you) and their son's Christopher and Conner.
Here is my one tomato.

C) My favorite places to eat:
D) Four places I'd like to be right now:
E) Four people I think will respond:
F) Four TV shows I watch all the time:
Okay, here are my answers!
A) Four places that I go to over and over: Walmart. Seriously that's it. I can't think of another place I go over and over. I am such a homebody, I like to stay at my house. Maybe the library but that's only every 3 weeks. I've been off and on sick for the last month so we haven't even been to church. I need to get out more.
B) Four people who email me (regularily): Hmmmm My mom and Shelly. That's it. And really I talk to Shelly more on IM than actual email. My blog is my outlet to the world.
C) My favorite places to eat: Olive Garden, Taco Casa, Maggiano's and TGI Friday's
D) Four places I'd like to be right now: Seattle, San Francisco, at my Aunt Ruth's house and North Dakota
E) Four people I think will respond: That is a hard one. I think Helen will...Holly guessed she would too. Probably Dawn....again guessed by Holly. And I'm gonna say Chel....because she should! And I'm one short...I say Holly!! I know it's cheating since I got this from her, but I don't know who else would! lol
Four tv shows I watch all of the time: Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, Law & Order: SVU and CSI Las Vegas.
Okay, I did it, now you go to your blog and do it too!!!

She has the most perfect nose, I am so jealous! And the bluest eyes ever, pretty blonde hair with a hint of strawberry, perfect porcelain skin and her lips are such a shade of rose that she will never have to wear lipstick. Where did this child come from, I have none of those characteristic's!
Here is Emma dressed up as Cinderella when I took her to the ballet at Bass Hall to see Cinderella performed. She is 6 here.

The exhibit was pretty interesting. They had a huge picture on the wall showing Tutankhamun's family tree and Sara got excited whenever we came across a statue that was pictured on the family tree. I definitely learned some interesting things. Like Tut married his half sister whose mother was Nefertiti.
When the girl's and I did our Ancient Egypt unit, we did basic stuff, pyramids, canopic jars, mummies, pharoah's. We didn't go into detail about the people because they simply would not have remembered it. So it was neat to learn so much more. Oh....and boy was Tut skinny!! He was only 5'6" (an inch shorter than me) and they don't know exactly why he died but they think it's because he broke his leg right above his knee a few days earlier and it became infected.
Another interesting thing was that they found the mummies of two female babies, believed to be him and his wife's stillborn babies. They had the tiniest little coffin's. Some of the artifact's they found were believed to have been used by King Tut as they showed signs of wear. The jewelry was absolutely beautiful. But the ancient Egyptian's were some little people! Their were a couple of chair's on display and it's hard to picture anyone sitting in them they were so little.
This weekend the girl's made mummies of their own using Barbie dolls. This one is Emma's.
But we did get the kid's some cool souvenir's. It's their names in hieroglyphic's. Pretty cool huh? Here is Sara's name.
