I was totally furious when I found out what happened to my Grams on Sunday. She already had some visitors at her condo, when a male and female came knocking on her condo door telling her they were sent to check her smoke alarm. So she nervously let them in, but like I said, she had visitors. Well they kept telling her that they needed things; a paper towel, a pen to write down some information; etc. After they left my sweet Grams felt a little uneasy, and decided to say a prayer. Shortly after this occurred, the condo office manager brought back all of her credit cards and her check book. She didn't know these were missing, because her purse was still there. Apparently these predators were on their last "mission", and had pushed their way into several other people's homes, and the condo was on alert. (It was a good thing that Grams just let them in, or she could have been hurt) The maintenance man saw these people, and chased them. As they were jumping a fence, dropped all of my Grams stuff. 4 little kids found the items, and turned them in. OF COURSE my cute little Grams totally paid them 5 bucks each for their AWESOME act of kindness.
However they didn't catch the losers that preyed on my cute Grams! So let this be a lesson to us all. Even as adults we shouldn't let strangers into the house; we should keep doors locked even when we have guests, AND more importantly: maybe I should move my purse away from my front door!!!!!!
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.

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."
