I'm a Dork!

I was trying to post picutes in the wrong layout, that's why it was not working. This is much easier. My sister Emily helped me figure it out. Thanks Em!

A Good Excuse

I know that most of you who were checking my blog have probably now stopped. I am sure that my mom is the only one still checking, but only out of duty as my mother. (Thanks mom!) Well I wish that I could say that my time as been taken up with so many new and exciting things that I just haven't had time! (Dang it) But, needless to say, it has been chaos as usual. Someone got the bright idea to buy a smaller version of a leggo star wars ship to build. Its cheaper and because its smaller, it would be faster to build. Those all were true, and I in fact was the one that finally built the stinkin thing because I could not handle David asking every 3 minutes when daddy was coming home. I think this was Adam's plan all along. I forgot that leggo ships, especially those are really only meant to be looked at than played with. And for David who gets ticked off when even the slightest thing goes wrong, like screaming "I hate you" to the button on his pants because he cant get his pants buttoned. You can only imagine his rage when the ship was literally breaking every 5 minutes. So instead of blogging, I was putting together a star wars ship for the 30th time while trying to calm down the insanity of a four year old. AND because I built it, I was the only one that could fix it ( Thanks Adam) I wish I had a picture to post of the final product, but it has been broken into pieces, not by david but by me! I guess the picture would be of me sobbing as I rebuild that dang thing again!

My second lame and valid excuse was that I have been TRYING to read Breaking Dawn and catch up on my sleep. On Friday I went with some friends to the midnight release of this last book in Stephanie Myer's series. Though there were other adults there, we definitely were outnumbered by teenage girls wishing to be a vampire. Needless to say, I wasn't bored waiting until midnight because of the "interesting" people I was able to watch as we waited. At midnight we screamed with delight. Just kidding, We walked down stairs and got our books and headed to an all night reading party. It was a lot of fun. We did not make it the entire night, but I guess I am cool again because I stayed out until 2:30. I still haven't even finished the book yet!!
I am going to try and post the picture of the kids again. I have lots of pictures from our trip this summer so I hope to at least post pictures of that. I think I am going to post more pictures than write so all my far away friends and family can remember us :)
