Okay....if I keep having unforgettable moments like I have been experiencing at Walmart....I am going to have to write a book and publish it! Today I had the pleasure of having a customer hand me a twenty dollar bill that was (I kid you not) covered in fecal matter. Be it human or animal....I couldn't say, but the smell was enough to turn my stomach. I grabbed it with a plastic bag....ran my counterfeit test marker over it....and called for a manager because I was not about to put that smelly dirty money in my register. This money looked like someone used it for toilet paper. I couldn't make these stories up if I tried!! The customer even told me he had the money in his jeans and that he didn't realize he'd been given a twenty like that. He swore he got it from the bank that way. I told him that if I were him I'd go home and burn my jeans! I was going to have a chocolate bar for my snack that night, but some how after that experience...eating chocolate just really lost its appeal.
A couple days before this happened I had a guy who was buying a plunger ask if he could go test it out in the public restroom before taking it home to make sure it works. I told him if he was brave enough to put that in a Walmart toilet and then his own toilet...that he could go for it. People are not kind to the Walmart bathrooms. Then he asked if the toilet plunger didn't work after he gave it a "test drive" on his toilet at home...could he bring it back. I said, "sure just bring it with your receipt to customer service".
It's not all bad! :) I had a middle-aged couple tell me I looked like Sandra Bullock. What girl doesn't want to be told that??!! :) I don't think I look like her, but I'll take the compliment! :)
Among other things, because I don't want to give off the idea that Walmart is my entire life...it is a very small part!! Just happens to be some good stories come from there!!
The boys continue to keep us laughing. Austin does this hysterical dance that he copies from the movie Barnyard. Great movie! It's from the scene where the Otis is dancing while hanging out of the car after returning from "Boy Tipping". You have to see the movie to get the joke! I'll have to see if I can get a clip of Ausitn dancing because it's so funny! Then Wes...well he is becoming a regular parrot. He copies everything you say and do...and it is sooooo funny! :) All he wants to do is everything he sees his big brother do! With the exception of wanting to learn to use the potty. He has no interest in that what so ever!! He loves snow globes! He will sit on the couch and shake the snow globe saying, "Look, Santa !" Can't wait to see them on Christmas!! They are going to have so much fun!! :)

I was doing a trial run of a snowman cake which is what I planned to use for Wesley's birthday on 12/20. Well....I thought this will be so cool. I make the cake take a photo.... post it on the blog....get some feedback on how it came out.....well....there will be no photo of this practice cake!! I put it in our small freezer to set the frosting. Well I guess the freezer was a bit too small. When I opened the freezer door, the cake came flying out. But...oh, I have quick hands when it comes to chocolate cake!! I managed to catch that sucker like a wide receiver cradles a football for a touchdown pass! Except for the fact that the snowman was damaged in the catching process, the cake is intact and very much edible! In fact, the boys and I already had a slice. Sorry, Eric. We were going to wait for you, but once the cake was a little messed up.....well we needed to taste it to make sure it was okay! :) Hopefully I'll get a picture of the next cake...only this time I can't mess it up because it will be Wesley's party cake! :) It's really too bad I couldn't post a picture because it had light blue frosting with clear sugar sprinkles to look like snow.
