January 30th-Sledding!!!!

Jake's first trip down the hill!

Me and the kiddos

Me and Brett :-)

Jake, smiling after tubing

Liv, taking a rest after chasing after Jake lol

Me and my handsome boy =)

Me and Liv coming down the hill. It looks like she's falling off, but she's not lol

Jake, after going down hill. He decided to take a rest lol

Liv and Josey

Jake, being pulled by Brett for the first time. He loved it!

Josey, being pulled by Brett

Liv, all dressed up and bundled tightly. The day really wasn't that cold, which made it nicer to be out!

Brett and I decided to take the kids sledding today. We took Josey, her friend Megan, Jake, and Liv. Jake went sledding before, but only in our yard, so nothing fancy. Brett loaded up his 4 wheeler, and we went up McKay about 25 minutes and went sledding. The kids had a blast. At first, Jake didn't want to get out of the truck lol. He was scared. But, my baby took the sled and went up the farthest point, and went down, without anyone begging him to do it, etc. First thing he said when he got down was "Awesome!". Then he was hooked! Liv, just like her Mama, asbolutely loves the snow. She did face plants and didn't even care. When it was time to go, she asked why LOL. She's one tough cookie! That's my girl =) Josey and Megan had a good time, but they were done after about 45 minutes lol. They hung out in the truck and drank hot chocolate =)

January 27th-Ah, the Memories!

I found my old Crayola sleeping bag awhile ago. My sister and I had matching ones. We thought we were so cool. I had it stored away. Once I moved, I showed Jake. He went crazy! He loves it. He sleeps with it a couple of times a week. It's so sweet to walk in and see him in it. It brings back so many memories

January 24th-Dum Dum

There are a few things I'm pretty intolerant about-One of them is using any words that all boil down to one: stupid. I hate that word. Yes, I use it often to describe things, objects, etc, however, I rarely call someone stupid (unless they really, really deserve it lol) I don't like anyone calling me stupid, or any word that can boil down to stupid, and I refuse to allow my children to do it to others as well. Jake knows this. We've had many discussions on the subject. So, the other day, Jake was being feisty, and thought it would be funny to write "Dum Dum" on an appt slip. Because of that, he had to write "I will not say Dum Dum" 25 times. Of course, look closely @ the word "will". You can tell he just drew a line to make the "l"s lol He's such a turkey...

Memorable Facebook Status Updates from the Week...

Monday, January 11th:

I think Liv is becoming very creative with her words. While at Hank's this weekend, she hit Jake. After being asked several times if she hit Jake, with her replying no, she finally said, "I didn't hit him. I pet him."

Tuesday, January 12th:

According to Jake, mistakes don't require punishment. Hmmm...Wonder if he's going into politics with Liv? ;-)

Wednesday, January 13th:

has to microwave frozen french toast sticks for Liv, only to put them back in the freezer to cool them down. Anyone else see the irony in that???

...needs to know what is wrong with my children. Seriously, are you THAT bored when you pee that you feel the need to bite the toilet paper roll??? (this is Liv)

...was pretty sure she was out of the "Mother of the Year" award, but it was solidified today when she forgot to get her youngest from pre school....

Went to get Josey because she was staying the night. Liv got into Josey's gluestick, except she didn't eat it. She thought it was chapstick and before I could stop her, she rubbed it all over her lips. Good thing it was non toxic!

Thursday, January 14th:

so, how is it that Jake can go in his room for 25 minutes, whining he can't find 1 of his shoes, yet, I go in, lift up 2 pairs of pants on the ground and find it right away?!?!?!?!

Friday, January 15th:

Loves getting a speeding ticket with both kids in the car, but what's even better? Listening to Jake yell from the backseat, "Mom, what did you do this time?" and Liv saying over and over again, "What the heck???" *sigh* Happy Friday...I need a drink...

Liv was helping me with laundry tonight. I was hanging some stuff up to air dry. She grabbed a pair of my underwear and said, "Whoa Mom! These are big! They must be yours!" Gee, thanks Liv...

I live such an interesting life =)

January 16th-Can't a girl just sleep with her stuffed animals??

So, I washed Liv's bedding yesterday. I washed her sheets, but didn't get her comforter done before naptime. She asked to have her stuffed animals back on her bed (she has a ton) and I told her once her comforter was done, that she could have it back on her bed. She seemed totally ok with that. I gave her 2 small animals, and left the room. Well, Josey went to check on her later, and she had decided to get on the floor with her stuffed animals, since they couldn't come to her lol

Tuesday, January 12th-Just...Ewwwww...

What's he doing, you say? Yep, biting his toe nails. YUCK YUCK YUCK! I had to take the pic for his future girlfriends-Love you, Jake! Don't hate me when you're 16!

Monday, January 11th. Little Ms Sneaky Pants

Liv is supposed to stay in her bed at night, but she manages to sneak into Jake's room at least once a week. It drives Jake nuts because she always wakes him up. But boy, she loves him so. How can she be denied? =)

January 8th-Freezing Rain Doesn't Always Leave Destruction...

It can leave beauty, too. I was dropping something off at my mother's and as soon as I got out of the car, I was struck by the frozen beauty around me. I was lucky enough to have my camera with me so I took some pics!

Tuesday-January 5th-How Does He Do It??

I went to check on Jake before I went to sleep the other night, and this is what I saw....

View from the door..

Notice he has CDs, kleenex, a book, and a light saber by his head LOL

And in the middle we have another 2 books, a hat, and some monster trucks...

I thought it was funny that he was drawing a road map LOL
He's so stinkin' cute =)

Ahhh...Peace in the Land....

Jake is back in school...Liv is back in preschool and back in daycare...Ahhh, life is good! (this is Jake walking to the bus stop. I can watch him from my door. He doesn't want me walking him anymore *sniff sniff*)

My Crazy Girl

She was sitting on my lap the other day, and insisted I take pictures of her. If you look at the computer screen behind, I was attempting to work (attempting would be the key word in that sentence). She's so funny...

January 2nd-Dude....

I have an old pair of sunglasses. Why I still have them, not sure. The thingys that go behind your ears don't stay, they're scratched. Actually, they're quite annoying, to be honest, to wear. Jake, however, thinks they are the coolest thing since PB and J. He's constantly wearing them. He *thinks* he looks cool in them. You decide....

January 1st-New Year, New Blog!!!

Happy New Year!!

Here's to a fantastic year ahead!
