Now the ball is dressed up as a pirate. Hilarious. If you look closely, you can see that Kaleb has put a bandana around the ball, and used play coins as eyes. There is a sword, a gun, and a bottle with a map all next to this "ball art"!
We finally decided that it was time to take down the pool. Trent makes everything quite the event. The neighbors came over, and everyone got into their swimming suits. Instead of hooking up the hose and and draining it into the gutter, they all climb on the edge. Someone got thrown in at one point, and then it was River Barney.
Earlier in the day, I asked the Samoans that were doing the neighbors concrete if they had a card, because we wanted to "eventually" pour concrete where the pool is. So the guy tells me that he'll just come give me a bid in 5 minutes. So I'm thinking...ok, then I know what to save for. He comes and looks over the spot (no tape measure, no nothing) says $1200, and we'll be here Monday morning. Hello!!!!
On our way to Kaleb's soccer game this morning, I realized that he had "decorated" his soccer ball. He apparently found a permanent marker. Joy! So he preceeds to tell me that he wrote his phone number on it. 1086. I told him that wasn't our phone number. He says "Oh no, that's my lunch number!"
7/22/09 We were at the store and I pointed out a bedspread that I liked. Kaleb says, "Mom, that's Goth." I giggled and said asked him what he thought Goth was. He told me that "Goth means you like black."
3/30/2009 We were at Target and Kali saw a new bobble head, "Mom, I want the "cowpitter". Which is catapillar in Kali-nese.
1/15/2009 Kaleb says, "Mom, is that toy gonna come out of my paycheck?"
12/22/2008 Abbi "Hey, it's the Eve, of the Eve, of Christmas Eve!"
12/19/2008 Kaleb asked "Mom, is coloring an exercise for your hand?"
12/15/2008 Kali says, "Ooops mom...sorry it was an ACCI-DIDN'T." The funniest part, is that she's been saying that for about 3 years. I finally had to tell her that the word is ACCIDENT.
11/2/2008 Kaleb was working on his spelling words. I told him to spell 'we'. He says, "W-i-i."
I was making dinner, when Abbi says, "Mom, I need a fork," and Kaleb says, "Mom, can you get me a cup?" and Kali says, "guys, she's not an octopus!" 10/19/2008
When Kaleb was about 2, I was ordering at Sonic, and I ordered grill cheese sandwich's for the kids. Kaleb began crying, and I asked him what was wrong. He told me, "I don't want it girl cheese, I want it boy cheese!"
This lady in front of me was driving terribly. I kept saying "Lady!" Well, I finally gunned the car to go, and the drinks from McDonalds, spilled all over the car. Kali says, "Her tripped us!" Kali was 4 years old.
When Kali was 3, she found a pair of her shorts in her drawer. She put them on. It was still winter, so I told her she had to wear pants. Kali said, "I am. Little pants mom."
