There's been crazy rumors going around town about how gas prices are expected to go up to $5.00/ gallon because of Hurricane Ike. To be safe I thought I'd fill up our 35 gallon tank in our gas guzzling van while prices were still at $3.71. Four of the kids wanted to go with me, but I was too lazy to run all the way upstairs to get Jason's shoes that he took off in my bedroom the night before. So I put his sister's church shoes on him. They fit perfectly. Is that bad? Or should I have put on the pink cowboy boots?

I gave him an Oreo for his cooperation.


  1. I would have let him go barefoot or ordered an older child to go get the shoes. They would have got up there and not found the shoes and yelled, "I don't see them!" and I would have said, "then you're not going!" Which then they would have found them- and I would have had to give everyone an oreo, which would lead me to have to go to Wal Mart and buy another package because 7 kids can eat a whole pack in one sitting. And then I would need more gas. (Sounds like Give a Mouse a Cookie?)

  2. That's hysterical! He had better be nice to you for the next 20 years or that picture could show up on his wedding reception video!

  3. Could he be any cuter?!!!! I just want to rub his little head. I'm sure everyone was so busy looking at how cute he is, that they totally bypassed the shoes.
