Happy Halloween

Hey Y'all:

I don't celebrate Halloween but since they were asking the kiddies to dress up at school today I decided to go ahead and get Erick a costume. Well why did my son just want to wear his costume from last year?

I don't get it! Why did that little boy ask me to buy him a new costume if he was just going to recycle? I'm all for being eco friendly but I mean he picked the new costume out! Why was I going through the house this morning trying to find all the pieces to a Batman costume that he has been wearing ALL year? Any who he was cute as a button in his rerun outfit!

Gotta love the kiddies. Hey what are y'all doing for Halloween? Dressing up? Going trick or treating? Is it even safe to go trick or treating these days?

Hope you have a FABULOUS day!

Until next time

Top 10 Reasons Why...

Hey y'all!

Today begins my top 10 list of Reasons Why... This list will range from Top 10 reasons why I love writing to the top 10 reasons why I hate the MTA! I'm sure you'll get a chuckle. Be sure to leave your top 10 list!

Top 10 Reasons Why...

I love being a Mom

  1. Erick, Leah and Myles give me a reason to be a better person

  2. They make me smile when I really want to cry

  3. They remind me of the love I have for my husband

  4. I get to say "Because I said so"

  5. I can use them as an excuse to leave early (you know leave work early or an outting with people I really don't like) I love using the line "Well you know I have to get home to the kids"

  6. They are living examples of my creativitiy

  7. They prove God answers prayer

  8. I get to call my mom and thank her for putting up with 9 of us. I totally 'get' her now!

  9. Hearing mom, mommy or mama is like music to my ears

  10. I get to play and watch kids movies that I really love without having to make an excuse

Don't forget to leave your list.

Until next time.

Adoption Wednesday

Hey y'all... as you read my blog you'll start to learn lots about my family which consists of nine children, eight of which my mom adopted. So every Wednesday I'll do a post about adoption or foster care on the domestic front.

Here's some information I got from TargetMarket News... According to the Administration for Children and Families, there are currently 496,000 children in the foster care system and, of these, 130,000 are available for adoption. Thirty-one percent of the children in foster care waiting to be adopted are African American; African American children are overrepresented in the foster care population relative to their percentage in the U.S. general population.

This makes me wonder why the heck all the stars are adopting outside of the states? I get that it's a bit more difficult to adopt here BUT there is a huge need. Come on y'all lets get some of these precious kids out of the system and give them a home!

Until next time

I'm Blogging!!!

Hey y'all welcome to Mrs Deveter's Fabulous Journey.

While HangingwithMrsCooper, listening to BlasianBabyNotes and relating to TheYoungMommyLife on a Magical Mocha Mom's adventer at Walt Disney World, I was inspired to start my blog! Chilling with these ladies really got me to thinking so I had to AskWifey how to tweet and get down with all the awesome things that were going on in the bloggispher! Now I'm here and ready to chat it up!

I hope you will stop by often and see what fab journey my husband the awesome musician Stix BONES and three children Erick, Leah and Myles are taking me on! Trust me there will be plenty here to make you laugh and maybe even cry as I talk about being a mom of twins and the deperate need for domestic adoption along with a host of other topics that just peek my interest!

Until next time!
