Washing the dishes....

In the toilet?! THANKS BUT NO THANKS! Well, again Kaylan was being a little too quiet. I hear Kenslee scream, "Mom, look what Buggy's doing!" I ran to the bathroom and this is what I saw. Apparently she decided to "wash" her dishes in the toilet! Thank goodness there wasn't anything swimming in there. EWWWW!



She knew she was doing something she shouldn't be. Here she is trying to "explain" herself to me. Yeah, I found another gray hair on my head and I know right where they're coming from!!!

Retro Baby!


I found these darling aprons. Aren't they so cute? I just love the retro modern look to them. Now that I have my KitchenAid I have been baking more and of course I need a new apron right? One of my new favorite websites is Etsy. They have TONS of cute stuff!

And check out these Groovy Gloves from a local--Jillie Willie. You can be super stylish while cleaning!


I'm thinkin' the girls might need one as well to go with their pink retro kitchen. Hmmmm.

I scream you scream we all scream for....


PINK EYE?! Uh, yeah. I don't think so! I can't believe this. Not only do I have pink eye in one eye, yeah, I have it in friggin' both eyes. Isn't that lovely? Kaylan had it last week and Kenslee and I woke up with it yesterday. Tony doesn't have it....yet. Hopefully he won't get it. Yesterday the girls had their "well check" appointments. While I was there I asked their doctor if there was anything he could give us for having this wonderful pink eye. He gave us some eye drops to use for the next five days. Gee, what a fun time.

Whew!


Wow! This is about how I feel after being cleaning up Christmas. I didn't realize how many boxes and boxes and packaging crap came with stuff! I swear, the dolls and toys the girls got for Christmas were more secured and tied down than your own baby is at the hospital! Holy Crap. I think my fingers are going to be sore for a few more days undoing those 'twisty ties'. I think they're more like 'twisty barbed wire.'
Although we have a lovely collection of boxes and plastic wrap, we had a very nice Christmas. It was nice to be with family and enjoy each other's company. Goodbye Christmas decorations....until next year.

It's Christmas Eve!


I can't believe it's Christmas Eve already! I'm worse than my kids. I'm so excited. I just love watching people open presents. This year we have chosen to do a Sub for Santa as well. I want my children to understand that not everybody is as lucky as we are and that we need to be like the Saviour and give unto others as well.
One of my patients is a bishop for an inner city ward downtown. There are a bunch of refugee families from Africa, Asia, and other places. Some were literally starving to death. He said that it is one of the toughest callings he has ever had in his life. Many of the people are not LDS but need to be taken care of and since they are in his boundaries that's what he does. I wanted so badly to help out wherever I could so I told him that we would love to do a Sub for Santa for one of the families. The family that was assigned to us is from Burma. They don't speak any english, in fact, the place they are from is so small that there are no missionaries that even speak their dialect. We have a ton of stuff to give them and we are soooo excited to deliver it to them tonight.
I hope everybody has a wonderful Christmas. What a fun and spiritual time of the year. Merry Christmas and don't forget to put out the cookies for Santa!

Where are you and what are you doing???

This morning I woke up to my usual alarm clock, Kaylan. She always calls "MOM!" and starts banging her crib against the wall like a bobcat in a burlap sack at exactly 7:45. Right when I get her up and change her diaper the first words out of her little mouth are, "I want cereal." When doesn't she want cereal? This girl can eat! After breakfast I did the usual and parked Kaylan in front of cartoons and proceeded to park myself in front of the computer. About 30 minutes later it was still really quiet and she hadn't said a word. I looked over and she was gone and she was far too quiet. Those of you who are mothers know that this isn't usually a good thing. I walked over to the couch and found this little person playing the Nintendo DS. She was concentrating ever so intently. It was one of the funniest things I have seen. I didn't know that I had a future DS champion on my hands!

The Bestest Book Ever!






This has got to be one of the cutest books I have ever read! It has fun pictures, a cute story, and a very good lesson. I saw this featured on one of my favorite local tv shows, GTU, and had to get it. It's a fun read for any age. I thought I'd buy it and read it to the family on Christmas Eve.

So, while I'm talking about Christmas I thought I'd list things I love about it. So here they are:

1. I love giving presents. It is so much fun to see the faces of those you care about when they open something. I just can't get enough of that.


2. Stockings! I love all the different kinds of stockings out there. My favorite have to be the jester ones though. Don't they just put a smile on your face?



3. And who can forget this guy Jolly Old St. Nick himself? I love this porcelain rendition of Santa my mother in law gave me.



4. Ribbon!!!! I have a fetish with ribbon. Although I make hairbows out of some of it for my girls, I don't use all of it. It is just so cute. Whenever I see ribbon on sale I have to buy it. It comes in handy for decorating gifts, frames, and other fun crafts.



5. And, of course, I cannot forget my Saviour. I love him with all of my heart. I am so thankful for His sacrifice. Without Him, you and I wouldn't be celebrating this most beautiful time of the year.

Congratulations Tenie and Happy Birthday BUGGY!




Yesterday was my Buggy's birthday. I can't believe she is 2 years old! Time flies. She is just getting so big.

My little sister Tenille had her third baby, a beautiful little girl on December 14th. They named her Mercedes. She weighed 7lbs. 8oz. and was 19 inches long. Not only was she born on the same day as Kaylan but they share the same stats! Crazy huh?

Christmas Shopping!


Has everybody done their Christmas shopping? Every year I vow that we will be done by the first of December and it never happens. I also vow that my kids will get no more than three presents each and that has yet to happen as well. I just find way too many deals on Pinching Your Pennies that I simply can't resist (okay, maybe I can but I don't choose too). A lot of things are more than 60% off and include free shipping!! I'm really excited for them to open their presents. Santa is bringing them a pink retro kitchen set. It's soooo cute!! I'm also excited for Tony to open his gifts. I think he'll be surprised. As for me, well, I already got mine. I received a KitchenAid mixer that I have been wanting for quite some time now. I absolutely love it! I can't believe Christmas is here in 10 days!!!

I've been tagged!


Well, I've been tagged by my friend Brandi. I have to list 7 things that most people don't know about me so here I go:

1. I am addicted to coupons. I can't stand buying something if I don't have a coupon for it. I love getting free or dirt cheap groceries. What can I say?

2. I am a bit of a perfectionist. Whenever I make or do something it has to be darn near perfect. It drives my husband crazy!

3. I can be quite the "dumb blonde" Just ask anybody at work. Sometimes I just don't get their jokes. I feel dumb because everybody else gets the joke but me. They say I get some kind of "look" on my face that lets them know I don't get it. Whatever.

4. I can't stand feet! They just totally gross me out. The only feet I can touch are baby's feet up until 2 years old. I can't even have Tony's feet touch me. EWWWWW!!

5. I'm compulsive about flossing my teeth. I always have floss in my purse and I floss in the car. Sometimes I floss my teeth way too hard that my gums bleed. Weird I know.

6. I love CUTE hand writing and PENS! It makes me so happy when I see cute hand writing. It puts a smile on my face and gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. It drives me nuts when I'm in a hurry and my handwriting is not cute. Of course having a good pen makes all the difference too. Sometimes I just have a retarded pen.

7. Gerber daisies are my most favorite flower in the whole world. Whenever I look at them they just make me smile. I call them my happy flowers. They just put you in a good mood for some reason.

So that's it. 7 things that most people don't know about me. Now it's my turn to tag some friends. I choose: Aly, Sarah, Shawna, Keri, and Tats. If you don't have a blog, just e-mail me. :)
