More Wisdom from Collin than a stranger needed

Sitting at a Boy Scout Court of Honor:

Collin to a lady sitting next to him that he doesn't know: How old are you?

Nice lady: Let me give you a hint, never ask a girl that.

Collin: My mom's 38.

Later, during the dinner portion:

Nice lady: You better eat that brownie before I eat it for you.

Collin: I know, I know. Women and their chocolate. Women have to have their chocolate.

Nice Lady: Now you know two things about women. You know never to ask their age, and you know they like chocolate.

Collin: Yea, and they don't have a weiner!

You just can't make that stuff up, people!

Check out this dude!

Since it's my blog, I can say whatever I want. Can I just say here today for the record, Zach and Cody have got nothing on this kid! It should totally be called the "Suite Life of Shane Thomas" He just started middle school too! The girls are gonna go crazy for this cool dude. There, I've said it. It's my blog, and I can brag about my kids if I want to.

Well, the reason I was absent from blogging for so long was because we bought a house and moved. This is a big deal for us, as we have never owned a house before. We have never been able to stay in one place for long enough, and we usually lived on base. But, we found a place, and we love it, and we're fixing it up. The look just needed a little updating. We're having a lot of fun doing it. I'll be posting before and after pictures to shock and amaze you. My husband, not to brag or anything, but he can do just about anything around the house. While the older boys were at summer camp, we renovated their bathroom. It was terrible before, really outdated looking and had pink flowers on the linoleum. Take a look...

Ewww, look at the pink countertop...

Not manly at all...

OK, here's the result of all our hard work after one week...

Thanks daddy! It looks much better!
