Whats the BIG Obsession?

Every Thursday is Library day at school and Braeden comes home every Thursday with a new book...a WAR book! I'm not talking about a First grade level book either. He's bringing home big huge War books and wanting Ryan to read them to him every night. Its all he talks about these days. War this and War that and how when he grows up he is going to jump in the big Tank and shoot all the bad guys. Ryan tried to talk him into being a Doctor in the Army and Brady ask what a Doctor would do? After an hour of explaining it, Brady said "No Thanks, too boring. I just want to be in a tank and shoot the bad guys." Brady even threw an hour tantrum at Walmart because we wouldnt buy him a 350 page book about World War II. Brady tried to sneek down the stairs the night we watched Hurt Locker and cried when we made him go to bed. Should I let him watch Saving Private Ryan?? Maybe that would change his mind!!

Braeden lost his First Tooth!!

Braeden has complaining about not loosing a tooth yet and how everybody in his class has lost many teeth. Well a few days ago he came to me so excited that his tooth was loose. We have been working on it for a while and finally tonight I pulled it out. He didnt even feel it. He was so excited but not as excited as Denni was. She was screaming saying how Brave Brady was and how she cant wait to break a tooth!!

Happy Birthday to ME!!

I got some money for my Birthday and I knew what I wanted to spend it on. I've been wanting a Collie Jersey for a year now. I loved watching Collie play for BYU and now love watching him play with my other Favorite Manning for the Colts! Thanks to my bestest friend ever..Jerri got me this Jersey..Super Bowl addition for an awesome price. I totally spoiled myself this year!!

I know that April is Spring time and the Weather isnt perfect but I am sick of crappy weather oh and of Channel 2 News telling me that it will get in the 70's. I wake up all excited, shave my legs hoping to get somewhat of a tan or burn, walk outside and its freakin cloudy with a chance snow!! 70 WHATEVER!! I think this week I need to just go buy myself a pass to the tanning beds and call it good.

Brown Sugar Oct 08-April 10

Its been just over a year since I've done anything with my blog and I am missing it a lot so I think Im going to start it up again. Today I went in to Denni's room to check on her pet hamster and noticed that she had passed. We gathered the kids and told them the news. Denni cried and cried. We let the kids pick a spot in our yard to bury her and said a few nice things as Denni was still crying. Then after she went over to all the neighbors and cried to all of them and then called everyone she knew and told them about her hamster. I'm afraid she is going to need therapy for this...Well it is our first pet that has passed..I hope she knows that Brown Sugar is in pet heaven and is very happy.

The Kids Power Throw! (so tough)

I thought this was funny. The kids were trying to be tough and throw the ball as hard as they could.
