Quirks! I was tagged by Jamie.

I was tagged by Jamie ( Thanks Jamie!!) I have no idea how to link people so I will just say my quirks and if I tag you I hope you will join the fun! So I guess first I copy and paste the rules.

1. Link the person(s) who tagged you
2. Mention the rules on your blog
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours
4. Tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them

1. I cannot stand it when Adults can't follow the traffic rules at the school!! I mean how many trees do they have to kill with notes asking parents to PLEASE not double park??? I guess they all forget how to drive the minute they enter the parking lot. Bugs the crap out of me!

2. I love the ocean but I cannot go in it any further than my ankles and if you're lucky my shins. It freaks me out. I get grossed out thinking about HUGE fish that live in there. I don't think anyone knows how deep the ocean is I don't care if they say they do know!

3. I have to sleep on my side with one ear on the pillow and the comforter pulled up over my other ear so that a spider can't crawl in my ear and lay eggs in it while I am sleeping!

4. Call me weird but, I hate when anyone runs through the freshly fallen snow in my front yard! Stay out of it, you make it look ugly! And maybe even stay out of my backyard too. I like it to look pretty and shiny.

5. I still fell a sense of guilt when I hit delete instead of forward on those e-mail that say "pass this on if you believe in God", or "You will have bad luck for 7 years if you delete this".

6. I do not like my food to touch on the plate! Fruit salad does not go well with gravy. I don't care if it ends up in the same place, it needs to taste good going down.

So those are my Quirks, I hope you learned something new today.

I tag Ali, Jen, Tamara, Angi, Kandis, & Michelle..................Have FUN!

Mckenzie's 1st day of preschool!

Mckenzie started 3 year old preschool yesterday. She has been so excited to go to school. At the beginning of August she received her post card from her teacher. She has been asking since then if she can go to school. So here we are a month later and she is finally going! I don't have to keep hearing "can I go today" repeated 20 times a day. We got to the school and she was ready to go in but didn't mind standing around for those poses.
I was trying to get a picture of her going down the stairs from behind but she turned around because she loves to be the center of attention in pictures!
She went right into the class and sat down and Aunt Sand was passing around "Poopsie" the hamster for the kids to hold. The story is, Poopsie doesn't like mom's and dad's so she won't come out unless they leave (it helps the kids tell their parents to leave so they can see the hamster). So she put Poopsie in a cup and passed her around so the kids could look at her.
Here is Mckenzie with Poopsie, but she wouldn't pop her head out because I was there, so I had to leave! I peeked around the corner as I was leaving, and Poopsie had her head sticking out of the cup looking at Mckenzie.
I went I picked up Mckenzie after school and she was just a little happy camper! She had so much fun. They learned about the number 1 and about how the leaves turn colors and fall of in the Fall.
Here is a picture of 2 of her teachers, Mrs. Thompson on the left and Aunt Sand on the right, and a few of the girls. I have to tell this story. Mckenzie does this thing now where she can never hear you, she always says "I can't hear you!" until you pretty much yell what you are trying to say (Maybe I should get her hearing checked!) So Sandra tells her, tell mommy what song we learned, Mckenzie kind of just sat there, so Sandra gets down in her face and whispers "the Wicked Witch" and Mckenzie looks at her and yells in Sandra's face "I CAN'T HEAR YOU!" Sandra looked shocked for a second and then laughed. I was a little embarrassed but it was funny.
