In other Ben news, he was very excited when he got home from school yesterday because he got an "awesome prize" for getting earning 10 stickers at Speech. Hmmmmm....what would a kid that has EVERYTHING, and can spend his free time talking on the phone and playing on the internet with his friends, think is an "awesome prize"???? You will never guess....
I really can't figure out the kids of this generation. :)

Also, if you look at it from a distance.....and squint, you can't really tell that it looks like someone tried to give him a "comb-over" and his silly face kind of looks like a smile. At least he looks happy!!
Yup, definitely a keeper!!

Charlie's job was to separate the seeds from the "gunk".
Jack took on the role of "inspector".
Drew takes after his mom and had no interest in sticking his hands in a cold, wet pumpkin. (Yuck!!) He came in to enjoy the pumpkin lighting ceremony after all of the icky stuff was done.
I think my boys did a great job. Spencer copied the idea for the face from something he found on the internet. The boys picked it from about 20 different choices. They all liked it because it was labeled "Goofball". Perfect!! When the pumpkin was all done, Spencer asked Charlie if he thought the pumpkin looked "scaaaarrrry". Charlie said "no, he looks ANGRY!!". I jumped in and said that I thought it looked like a "goofball". Charlie said "NO....Goofball looks ANNNNGGGGRRRRRYYYYYY!!"
Hopefully, "Angry Goofball" lasts until Halloween!!!
Then, *I* glued it all on the shirt.
Then, *I* colored and ironed on letters to the back of the shirt that said "Owls Rock".
Finally, I had to go teach the boys' RE class last night so, I asked Spencer to work with Charlie to finish the shirt by glueing a few feathers on the owl.
This morning when Charlie got up, he was very excited to show me the "shirt dat Daddy made". Then, he was very proud to tell everyone that commented on his shirt (lots and lots of people) that "Daddy made dat owl". He even announced it several times throughout the day, just to himself, that "Daddy made my shirt".
Isn't Charlie lucky to have such a creative and artistic Daddy?!?! I can't wait to see what he creates next. :-)

The boys had their first experience as salesmen a couple of weeks ago. We spent a couple of hours in front of the grocery store selling Cub Scout popcorn. I am not a salesperson at all...in fact, I hate selling stuff. But, I have to admit it was pretty fun. Maybe it was because the boys were so darn cute. I think the hat got them some extra sales and donations.
My absolute favorite line of the day belonged to Drew...
So, would you??? ;-) Seriously, let me know if you want some. I can put you in touch with an expert sales person.
