First, he got a letter to go on an exhcange program overseas...an opportunity that most kids never get. He passed the interview and was accepted. Except that he says he doesn't want to go. WTF! He has finally come to realize that he will in fact go, and it's useless to fight City Hall (by which I mean me). We are in the process of applying for a scholarship and (by which I mean me) and trying to think of ways to do fundraising for the trip (also me).
He just fights me every step of the way.
His school has a coffee shop (can you believe that?!) and I thought that he could sell muffins at the coffee shop to raise money. Supposedly he is going to talk to the teacher. Hmphh!
B.I. also got the opportunity to go to Stephen F. Austin on a field trip that is reserved for Seniors only. Want to know what impressed him the most? The freakin' cafeteria!
I honestly don't know how Gaga survived the three of us kids.

The boss at the paying job got in a ton of these velvet pumpkins and I thought she was off her rocker...we've sold almost every single one.
Fall has my favorite favorite color palette. Believe it or not, brown is my favorite color.
Just look at these Mums! Fabulous!
I took it upon myself to re-work the fairy garden at the paying job. I think it looks pretty cute!
I like how this rosemary tree turned out. I think I should grow some to sell. Don't you?

The girls went for sweet and cute and verrry girlie (Gianna left, Joselynn right). I get the distinct impression, however, that sugar and spice is not their forte.

This is Fatboy eating some "pake", one of his favorite foods. "Wanwiches" are another favorite.
Uncle Plantfreak and I took Fatboy along with big brother and sister to the zoo for his birthday. It was a success!
Here are the kids feeding the birds in the zoo atrium. Can you see fatboy under my enormous purple booby? Uncle Plantfreak apparently did not notice...or maybe he did. Who knows what goes on in his demented brain.
Fatboy loves his "Aunt Timmy" most days. Something tells me today will not be one of them.

And here it is at the party. The top of the hat already left the cake. Karen did say it at least tasted great.
Here are the two cakes I made for Karen back in April. I call them successes. The purse was chocolate cake with espresso filling, and the shoebox was lemon cake with white chocolate filling and fresh raspberries. Yum.
