Kali lost her first front tooth due to being bumped by an elbow at school. She lost her second by tripping over the Christmas Blowup outside and smacking her face on the corner of the sidewalk. Poor poor little thing! Then to make matters worse....I thought it was looking pretty bad the next day, so I swung her into the doctors office and it was infected. Poor Poor Poor baby!
Kaisey was super excited. However I was really afraid that she wasn't going to even try. She is sometimes a little naughty at dance class and doesn't participate. Uh.....turn around Kaisey! Then there was Kali. She did a GREAT job! I cannot wait to see her perform at her first competition. Abbi's turn. She had her cheer and competition class recitals. She has improved SO much already this year. She now has her back walk-over, her round-off back-handspring, and her standing back hand-spring. I'm so proud of her! Here's Kaisey performing.
Kaisey "I wanna build a snowman. We need sticks for arms!" Mom "First I have to clean the house." Kaisey "I wanna build a snowman." Mom "Yes. But now I have to clean the bathtub and give you a bath." Kaisey "I wanna build a snowman." Mom "Yes, but now I gotta shower." Kaisey "I wanna build a snowman." Mom "We have to go run errands first." Kaisey "I want Wendy's and then I wanna build a snowman." Mom "Ok we'll get Wendy's then you have to nap and then we can build a snowman."
.......and we FINALLY built the snowman but first she had to wear his outfit.
My very first relay and it was SUCH a blast. I'm hooked. This is my team. I was in van 1 and I happened to be runner 1. I had legs 1, 13 and 25. We started this journey in the Valley Of Fire and finished up in Vegas. 195 miles in 2 days. For those of you who think that Vegas is flat? Well we didn't run in THOSE places. And we're off! That blue speck? Ya. That's me. Catchin' a rest whenever, where ever I could. Just getting ready to start my 2nd leg. In the dark. By myself. On a trail. All I could think of was bobcat. I thought I was gonna get eaten. Especially when my headlight went out. This was on my final leg. My last leg was an absolute killer. It ended up being practically straight up hill for 3 1/2 miles. 2 of my besties! Patrice I've known since Kindergarten, and Cindy I've met in High School.
I can't wait to do it again. April. California. Here I come.
Let me just start by apologizing to all the people in my neighborhood for all the 'marshmallow attacks', and for turning the park into a 'marshmallow zone' (I couldn't very well have them all over my yard right??) Having overheard a couple of the kids tell Kaleb that his party was the COOLEST EVER was definately worth 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."
