Music Monday: Garth Brooks on Ellen singing “Mom”

Oh wow — this song made my cry. My oldest boy is moving to Oklahoma City this weekend to start a new job and a new life. I’ve loved having him home from college these last six months. I’m going to miss him.

Life with Boys: Halloween Decorations

My boys love it when I decorate for Halloween. As far as they are concerned the creepier the better. The only problem with that is, we live in the Bible Belt. If I do anything other than cutesie people think we worship satan. Still. I love my guys and I love decorating for Halloween. I did try to balance cutesie with scary this year and the guys hate it. What’s a Mom to do?

My boys love our Halloween Ghouls
And yet, THIS freaks them out because the head moves. Go figure.
