Where Did That Come From?

Jake took off his sweatshirt yesterday and this crazy thing appeared. "Where did you get that???" He then proceeded to tell the story of how he was cold at recess and some kid lent it to him. I think he just wanted it! Wow, we will be sending this back soon!

Another Jake story: the boys were being babysat by our good friend Angie. The dog had strung trash all over the front yard so Angie gave everyone a trash bag and told them whoever got the most trash, won. Jake reappeared claiming "I won, I won! I got a opossum!" Upon further inspection, it was a dead mole! Yuck!!!

New Business Venture

Today starts a new business venture for Creator Designs. We are doing a two week trial period of selling our holiday tee and Missouri State tees. Our employees are joining us in this venture by obtaining "shares" for the hours they work the cart. We are thrilled with their enthusiasm and we hope the value of their "shares" continues to rise over the two week period. Come see us!

Love the sense of humor someone had at Wood's today! The sign says:

Some Assembly Required

Chapel says everything with a "d".... instead of "Dora" its "Doda". He always wants to take a "showder" with the boys and he also loves to "codor" pretty pictures. He prefers "cerdal" for breakfast. Some days I hope he never grows up, then I have to change a diaper! :)

Deacon & the Defenders

Deacon is playing a lot of basketball these days. He plays every Tuesday and also a lot of weekends in tournaments. This weekend they won 2nd place at a tourney in Nixa. Unlike his dad and uncle, Deacon passes the ball a lot. :) He also loves setting screens and blocking out. I think he likes physical contact; he's anxious for football!

More Jake Stories

After school Jake said "can I go over to Cael's house?" I replied "did he invite you?" He said "no, but we can surprise him!"

Jake loves baked potatoes and dad fixes them great complete with butter, sour cream, salt and pepper. Dad wasn't around and Jake asked me to fix them, I left off the pepper and Jake questioned "why don't these potatoes have the little black dots?"

Jake: Sometimes my brain thinks bad things.
Mom: Like what?
Jake: Like bad words.
Mom: Like what bad words?
Jake: Like GUTS!

Mrs. Tweedy's Birthday

Chapel, Bo and a Saturday

Just thought I'd share some pictures with you from today. We put up a tent and Chapel thinks he has a new bedroom. Bo had his friend Jace over and they had fun pretending like they played for the OKC Thunder. Chapel fell asleep... kids are so cute and sweet when they're sleeping! The boys and I read about John Wesley tonight and we learned and love the saying he coined "gain all you can, save all you can, give all you can." Hope you had a good Saturday!

Jake the Jokester

On the boy's birthday we are marking their height on the wall in their room. I forgot to do Jake's on his birthday so I did it this morning. Tonight we went back up to show dad and guess what... Jake shrunk! That or maybe he was standing on his tiptoes this morning... wish you could have seen his smirk, little stinker!

My Lunch Date

I love my schedule right now! Almost every day I get to go to lunch with these two! I laughed today at what they both had on... shows their different personalities.

20 years... 20 t-shirts

Creator Designs is celebrating 20 years in 2011 and we are doing many things in twenties! One plan is a competition at SBU games putting on 20 shirts then shooting a basket or something. This is a practice run with Deacon!

Tattle Tale Jake

We had a couple friends over, we'll say "Bob & Larry." I came upstairs and Deacon was consoling Bob, "it's okay, Larry shouldn't have said that, I'm sorry he talked that way to you." I inquired about what was going on and Deacon informed me that Larry had yelled and Bob and talked hateful to him. I told him I would have a talk with Larry to which Deacon said "NO! I don't want to tattle tale, don't worry about it." So I decided to hold off but felt like it was something that needed to be dealt with.

All the boys came in for lunch, Jake offered to pray... "Dear Jesus, please help Larry not to yell at Bob, please help him to be kind and not say hateful things..." I laughed to myself, some things have a way of taking care of themselves.

Chapel's 2nd Birthday

Our baby turned two at the end of December! He loved blowing out the candles, he kept saying "again" and we would re-light them and he would blow them out... again and again and again. One of his favorite gifts was a box of pacifiers... yes, I'm one of those moms, I probably am more addicted to him having one then he is. :)
