Josh and his flags ;)

My daughter made him the black and white one. My hubby made him the black and red one, and I made him the blue one. I am also adding a pic of my sister trying to get cell service in my house lol. Could be used in a commercial ;)

Happy boy lol.....

See my dog looking at her like what the??? are you doing? lol

Happy 9th Birthday to my baby boy ;)

Joshua turned 9 years old today! Unreal how big he is getting, yet he is so small. We did a few different things today for his birthday. Usually we have a party, or go somewhere really fun but today we just spent it with the 4 of us and my sister met us to eat dinner at a Chinese place because Josh loves chinese food!

He has this obsession with flags. And I mean obsession!! His school has one right in the front and he has a morning and afternoon routine that his teacher gives him because it is something that will make him be off for the day if he is not given his flag time lol. He stares at it, cocks his head sideways, walks around it from different angles and smiles at it. On windy days he is in heaven when the flag is blowing full force.

He has hand held flags here at home. He will take us to a ceiling fan and put our hands on the switch to turn it on so he can stand under it and let his hand held ones blow. At his school they think this is the cutest thing ever ;) ALL of the women in the front office watch him. Other kids at his school will come up to his teacher after watching him with his routine and say to his teacher "he sure does like that flag". His 3rd day of school 3 women from the office went to the back of the school that morning and all carried this big ole rock to the front of the school and set it in front of the flag by the office windows. They deamed it Joshua's rock, and even instructed the school janitor to brush the snow off of it in the winter so he could sit on and watch the flag lol.

SO with that explained that is part of what we did today. There is a huge flag at this car dealership in our city. We went there and the kids sat on a blanket and he had his handheld flag and watched the big one. Today was so cold and windy but perfect for him to see the big one blowing. I took some pictures I will add them at the end of this entry.

After we ate dinner we went to a craft store and all got material, sticks, and decor in different colors and came home and made him flags and put tags on them that say Made with Love from.... and each of our names. Mine and hubbies is still drying. But he has been carrying the one my daughter made him since she handed it to him. So cute ;) My sister also came with and made him one. I will get a picture of them all together tomorrow.

So this year we decided to even if we do not understand it do something that we knew Josh truly loved.  It was fun ;)

I took some pictures of our pumpkins also that I will add. I made a huge pan of sunflower seeds last night and they are so yummy. I also am going to add a few pictures of the trees in the front of our house. They are absolutely beautiful right now. Bright red!

That's it for tonight. I am going to add the pictures now and go make a tag. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Love and Hugs,

Pics of new place

Hi everyone! There is going to be ALOT of pictures in this entry. I hope everyone is well. It is getting so cold in Minnesota. It also has been raining for 4 days, so gloomy! Tomorrow night we are going over to my moms for dinner and to carve pumpkins. My kids are out of school until Monday now so we need to find stuff to keep us busy.

My sons 9th birthday is on Friday. I cannot believe he is going to be 9!!! In some ways it feels as if it has been 20 years, yet he is still in the body of a 4 year old and at the age level of around 3 so it is a trip that he is so close to being in the double digits.

Last year this time Josh LOVED Rolie Polie Olie, this year his obsession is Happy Feet. He will watch that movie over and over again. He gets really upset when he doesn't get to watch it in a day. He will come to you and do this little Happy Feet dance when he is trying to drag us to turn it on or restart it lol.

I have kind of been in a rut lately. I am still going with the motions and doing what needs to be done, and putting on a happy face for others. But I am tired. I am feeling out of sorts. I have regrets in life that cannot be changed now, but had I have known now what I was truly capable of handling in life as a woman I would have done some things differently.

Living life with a child with severe special needs, and a bi polar husband who is not medicated gets so hard sometimes. I have so much weight on my shoulders to keep the peace that it tends to knock the wind out of me sometimes. I am going to leave it at that for tonight. Just needed to vent a bit.

The pictures I am adding are of my new place I just moved into. The last three are something fun I thought maybe my readers could join in and do. I am adding a couple pics of my fridge and freezer to see what I have in it out of boredom lmao. I am daring enough to show you mine can I see yours? lol

You will see that we have been buying yogurt like crazy for the lids. We just bought 20 tonight when I went grocery shopping. Good thing all four of us like it lol

I am going to add all the pictures now and go make some tags. Have a great night everyone.

Love you and hugs, Robyn

No pics of my bedroom because hubby is asleep up there. Maybe tomorrow ;) Here is my fridge.....All of the frozen meals are what my son eats at school. He has to eat stuff that is mushable because he does not chew right. So don't think all I feed my family is frozen meals LMAO.....

The real answers ;) I thought some of you might get a kick outta this lol (AC somewhat)

The Why's of Men


(because they are plugged into a genius)


(they don't have enough time)


(they don't stop to ask directions)


(because their balls fall over their butt-hole and they vapor lock)

(You're laughing, aren't you?!?!)


(so they won't hump women's legs at cocktails parties)


(you need a rough draft before you make a final copy)


(don't never happened)

( C'mon guys, we laugh at your blonde jokes!)

And the personal favorite:


(because a vibrator can't mow the lawn)

Remember, if you haven't got a smile on your face
laughter in your heart...Then you are just an old sour fart

One for the ladies

One day my housework-challenged husband decided to wash his Sweat-shirt Seconds after he stepped into the laundry room, he shouted to me, "What setting do I use on the washing machine?"

"It depends," I replied. "What does it say on your shirt?"

He yelled back, "University of Oklahoma ."

And they say blondes are dumb...


A couple is lying in bed. The man says,

"I am going to make you the happiest woman in the world."

The woman replies, "I'll miss you..."


"It's just too hot to wear clothes today," Jack says as he stepped out of the shower, "honey, what do you think the neighbors would think if I mowed the lawn like this?"

"Probably that I married you for your money," she replied.


Q: What do you call an intelligent, good looking, sensitive man?

A: A rumor


Dear Lord,

I pray for Wisdom to understand my man; Love to forgive him; And Patience for his moods. Because, Lord, if I pray for Strength, I'll beat him to death.



Q: Why do little boys whine?

A: They are practicing to be men.
