I know this has been a long time coming, but I decided to get bangs like Reese Witherspoon... so here you go, pretty hot expecially for a Sunday Girls Night... that is one of my bestest girlfriends Laurie, she always looks hot.
WARNING: THIS IS TOTALLY GROSS! I have a change box that I dump all my change in and leave in the closet. I looked in it and the cat had peed on the change. I was totally grossed out so I put the change in a pot, added bleach, and boiled the heck out of it. Now, I have gross looking coins. Needless to say, I don't suggest boiling coins if you plan on using them in the future to purchase Diet Cokes at the Mav. I don't know if you can tell in the picture, but the coloring looks like it came off and rusted. Sometimes I wonder how I get these genuises idea and am still able to hold onto my Masters Degree?
I got out of the car this morning and saw that Emma had taken a jump rope from the gym and hid it in my bag. Not to worry... I will be back there on Monday to return the stolen item. She brought the jump rope inside and I start to clean the house (or so I would like you to think that is what I was doing instead of just sitting on the computer) and Audrey comes in, jump rope in hand, and says, "Emma and I both wanted the jump rope, so I cut it in half" DANG IT!
We had our first HUGE snow storm of the winter and I cannot be more excited. I remember growing up in California and not really understanding the changing season, but now I am all about the leaves falling, the weather cooling, and the SNOW falling! Here is our house and our front porch after Tyler shoveled. Warm up the hot cocoa for these pictures!
I think Emma thinks she is apart of my brothers South Pas gansta' tribe. She sure dresses like one. Can I just say she must have gotten her keen fashion sense from her Auntie Beth... JK! Check out that Hat, those shoes, that outfit, and of course, the OREO's that seem to grow on her face!
We had our first primary program in our new ward and for the first time with both Ben and Audrey. Oh if only those feelings that were expressed during that time could be bottled and sold. LOL!
Tyler sat on the stage with our 5 year old primary class, Audrey was in the front row, Ben sat next to Gabe on the side, and I sat in the pew with the Emma. Seemily the perfect church going family.
As always, Audrey was the perfect angel. She was really great, just sat and smiled. Now if you had been at our house before church you would have seen her DIVA side, but that is not that fun to write about. Emma was a wiggler, but actually sat through the entire hour sacrement program.
The encounter at this church event had to be Ben. He sat and pointed at me, thumbs up, standing up, wiggling around to no end. His teacher had him changed seats, which didn't seem to help. I even did the sign for death in sign language, he laughed and signed it back. It was at the point in my life that I wondered if it…
So today Audrey was drawing a picture of me, which is something she does on a regular basis (we are just now thankful it is on paper, instead of the walls) and then she draws little eggs inside my stomach and says "Look Mom, you can poop babies out too!" That was just great. So simple. Why didn't I think of that? Here is the actual picture, see the eggs in my tummy? BTW, I am not pregnant.
So I am just going to throw out this question. Does her diaper make her butt look big? I am thinking so. Thoughts? Isn't it so funny how you can remember different times according to the styles. I remember in the 11th grade when we went to Disneyland and my mom wanted me to wear an "old school" mickey mouse shirt and I totally refused... flash forward to 2005 and Jen Garner wearing the same shirt and now it is the "Rave. Who knew! So this shirt will go down in the file with my bright pink florescent shirt and my tie-dyes :)
We were watching Go Diego Go this morning and it had leather back sea turtles who were laying their eggs in the sand waiting for the light of the moon to hatch the eggs and return the wee babies back to the ocean sea... How natural, healthy and beautiful until my 4 year old, Audrey, yells, "Look Mom, the turtles are pooping out their babies!" So much for that!
Since this is my first family post, I decided to do something that one of my friends did, called "Photo Tag"
#1 Self Portrait Yes, this might take you back to the 1970's photo of your mother in high school, but with the stress in my life, sometimes that "in the moment" pictures just should not be posted. Here is what I would look like had I graduated from high school in 1974! I am going to boot camp, 5 days a week, and just made a bet with my husband to not eat sugar for a month... so if you see me don't feed me! Maybe I will add a photo in 6 weeks ;)
#2 What are my kids doing right now:
Are you serious? I have been working on this blog all day, they are in bed. Well, I can honestly say that Ben is sleeping, as for Audrey and Emma, they are watching TV in my bed. I know, it is past 9, but they just sit so quietly when "Wow Wow Wubzy" comes on... who else is going to babysit them at this hour? Plus knowing what 1 out of 3 is doing is great :) I can t…
