Hypothetically Speaking

IF I forgot to put gas in my car and IF I forgot to tell my hubby before we went out for his Birthday that we needed gas, and we stalled in the middle of the intersection turning left off of Bangerter Hwy, PLEASE all you passer by's REMEMBER that this is the SEASON TO BE JOLLY! TO BE GIVING! NOT TO BE HONKING YOUR HORN AND CALLING OUT RUDE NAMES! IF this really did happen....couldn't you maybe think that instead of being rude to the stalled car that you could ask if they needed help?

Not that this really did happen. I am just sayin'. ;)

Happy Birthday yesterday Hubby! I promise ice cream and cake next year! Love you!

Oh and thanks for coming to our rescue Matt!

Good Heavens! He is AMAZING!

It is things like this that make me feel I have failed as a mom. Ok or at least make me feel like I need to get started on learning all the countries are so I can someday teach them to my kids.

Check it out, this kid it TOTALLY AMAZING!

Thanks Arianne for letting me exploit your nephew! I just watched it and I am still in awe!

Just being "conscientious" doesn't prevent pregnancy!

Not for a 16 year old anyway! I found this story about Jamie Lynn Spears being pregnant VERY disturbing! Mostly the part where Lynn Spears says "I didn't believe it because Jamie Lynn's always been so conscientious." Ummmm......What about "I didn't believe it because I taught my kids to not have premarital sex, not just taught them to be careful!"

Then there is this part:
What message does she want to send to other teens about premarital sex?
"I definitely don't think it's something you should do; it's better to wait," she says. "But I can't be judgmental because it's a position I put myself in."

Oh sad! What really sucks is that she is a role model and that there are so many little girls that will have so many questions. Some that don't have anyone to talk to about them.

Pillow Talk

We had the hardest time getting our little princess to bed last night. We thought that it was because of taking a long nap during the day, but after a little while I think we figured out why she couldn't sleep.

It had actually been a little while since she had gotten out of bed. We went and checked on her and she was just falling asleep. Shortly after we hear her in her room talking to something. We walked in and she was talking to her pillow. We asked her what was wrong and this is what she said....

"I'm grumpy with my pillow!"

Daddy- "Why are you grumpy with your pillow?"

"Because it won't let me sleep on it."

Insert me in the hall just DYING! I am trying SO hard to not laugh!

Daddy - "Well, I don't think that your bed is mad at you. Just lay down and I will cuddle with you."

This may have been her sneaky way to get her daddy to cuddle with her, but I still think that it is SUPER cute! She even fell asleep. Hopefully tonight her pillow will be a little nicer.

Lazy? Maybe.....

So I didn't show up to my 3AM appointment. I wasn't even in bed until 2:00. 3:00 just wasn't going to work for me. I realize that sometimes you have to sacrifice , but I am not one to sacrifice sleep. I don't get enough as it is. They only thing that I will miss is my plan to get a Carmel Apple Cider every morning on my way home...guess I need to think of some other way to get one every morning.

I take after him.....

My Big Bro surprises me sometimes. I find out that he and I are more alike that I thought. Last night I went out shopping with a friend and we stopped at Starbucks to get a warm drink (you have to do that when it is 20 degrees outside.) I saw that they had a Carmel Apple Cider drink. I couldn't resist, I had to get it. 10 minutes later I was standing in the electronics section of Shopko just in heaven! HEAVEN I TELL YOU! I loved my warm drink SO much that NaTasha was trying to talk to me and I didn't even notice. I was enjoying it way too much.

So this morning I check my Big Brother's blog and he has this posted on there. Apparently he has a new love to! (Hi bro!) I knew I loved him for some reason! Now thanks to him I have been craving a Carmel Apple Cider ALL DAY!

Go ahead, Laugh!

I was looking through the paper a few weeks ago and I saw this nice green piece of paper that said someone was looking for me. There was a number on the paper so I called it. Left a message and then waited.

Ok really, I saw that they needed someone to deliver the newspaper in my area, so I called. Just to see. I thought "hey I could use some extra money!" I never thought that they would actually call me back, but I was interested about how it all works.

They called. I have a paper route starting tomorrow morning at 3.....AM. What have I done?

'Tis the season...

Broken spring on garage door........$250 to repair.

Crappy TV that only works a quarter of the time.......if up to my hubby somewhere between $800 and $1300 to replace.

A bathroom that has been torn to pieces, tile ripped out, sheet rock torn down, stairs built, and shower taken down.......too much money that it is not completely purchased yet.

A BRAND NEW external hard drive that is currently storing ALL of my photo sessions, pictures of my kids, movies and music that is completely not working no matter what we try.........(it makes me cry when I think about it.) Not sure that it can even be recovered but totally irreplaceable!

So 'Tis the Season for everything to break at our house! I really hope that the current condition of things in my house at the end of this year is not a sign as to how next year will be for us.

I hope the rest of you are having a fantastic holiday season!

Pop Rocks

Is there something wrong with my 8 month old baby because he likes Pop Rocks? What a silly kid. He was laughing so hard. So were the rest of us! FUN TIMES!

I found out tonight that my brother-in-law Shannon just signed a contract to play semi-professional basketball for a new team in Texas the Lake Jackson Lakers! I am super excited for him! He has always loved basketball and is REALLY good at it. He has tried out for some other semi-pro teams before including the Globetrotters but it just hasn't worked out for him. This is such a neat thing for him and his family! It is a true example of following your dreams no matter how many times you have been put down and no matter how old you get. I wanted to congratulate him on all his hard work and his family for some really fun times a head! Way to go Shannon!

P.S. I was looking through my pictures to see if I had a picture to post of him, but I only found some of his kids......

BUT, I did find one of SOME of him.....Not sure how this happened. Oh well, just take a little from all of his kids and but it to this body and you get the idea. :)
