Abbi had been working REALLY hard on her Science Fair project for several weeks. The experiment was basically to find out how much water plants needed to grow. She took 1st place, and is off to District this week.
Then Abbi and I headed of to St. George for her dance competition. We were roughly Cedar City, when I got my very first speeding ticket. With everything that I'm going through right now, I cried my eyes out. SHE showed me no mercy. Once we arrived in St. George, I made a phone call that I had been putting off for an entire week. I called the buyers of my house to plead my case. SHE showed me no mercy either. Seeing as though I think they found my blog, I won't go into further detail. (Hence....be watching for the next post I make.)
Here are the girls after performance. Abbi, Lexy and Addison. The team took 1st and 3rd places. They did such a good job!
On our way home, we had to stop in Beaver for Abbi's county report. She has chosen to do the Travel Brochure. (For all of you who haven't had the pleasure of this yet....) It's not JUST pictures of the important places....it's pictures with child in it. We did stop at Cove Fort. That was really pretty cool. The missionaries give you a tour of it. We were lucky that they were open even though it was Sunday.
When we got home, Kaisey was just getting up from a nap. She practically dove for me, and once I had her in my arms, she laid a big sloppy kiss on me. This is the first time that I have left her overnight. It was very hard for me.
Kaisey however continued to be absolutely adorable. While she was eating her dinner, she kept pulling the shakey face? I don't know how to describe it. Every kid does it. Where they clench up their fists and tighten their face and kinda shake? Here's a picture of it.
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."
