Here we have Me, Brenda, Amelia, Aria and Becky walking the red carpet to the 1st Midnight showing. Aria reserved/purchased tickets for us. What a peach! After we took this picture I went over to have my hair done. What girl goes to prom and does'nt get an updo? Oh, I know....Brenda and Becky.
V.I.P. get to wear these. This bought us dinner and drinks. They had a red chocolate fountain to dip marshmellows in...it was kind of a yum!
This is us waiting anxiously for the movie to start. Good gravy, we have kids to wake up for school in 7 hours....let's get this started!
Twilight was a fun book to read. I did like the book ALOT more than the movie. Even with all the exoctic sound effects from the teen bopping boppers around us, it was a great movie to watch! Thanks again ladies for another fun girly night!

Johnson's Baby Lotion and I have been pretty tight for the past 8 years of my life. I rarely have an empty bottle laying around before a new one is purchased. I love the scent and I love how smooth it is when applied! I do have Madi use other lotions as well, but nothing beats that sweet scent on her face. Jacob could really care less about it. He is sounding words out, so before I know it he'll be able to read "baby" and I'm pretty sure he'll freak out on me if I tried to put it on him. Owen thinks it's tasty! You read that right. The other night after his bath I was rubbing it on him and he asks me "what's that smell?" Before I could answer him, he starts licking both of his shoulders and says "Mmmm, that's yummy!" I do agree....but really?
So with that said.....I'm retiring from the BEST scent in the world! Oh my heart.....my heart!

I'm in the kitchen sitting at the bar stool making Thank You cards and I see out of the corner of my eye (I really use those corners of my eye) Owen with the peanut butter container. I really had NO idea he would go this far. Really! In a matter of just minutes I turn around and see this. I yell "holy crap, nugget!" and he just gives me the "excuse me, but you just interrupted me" look. I've learned that after having 3 kids...you just have to laugh (a little) at moments like these. Owen had nothing to say. He was perfetly content with this made up activity of his.
After I gave him a bath and was rocking him, I asked him why he made such a mess. In his defense he says, "not a mess. I made a elephant."
Well there you have it!
Oh' the JoY of my little bOy!

*On our way to the airport to drop Ty off, Owen says "is that the air pork?"
*While eating dinner the other night, Jacob just out of the blue asks, "Who is running our country?"
*A couple of weeks ago, Julie and I were at Costco with my boys looking at pictures and having them developed. So we are standing there just trying to decide which pictures we want by looking at the screen, and at the corner of my eye I can see a hand about to touch the little device where you put your disk in to have your pictures pop up. Ya, so I slap the hand thinking it's one of my boys hands......oh no, it was some ladys! Not embarrassing AT ALL! I quickly apologized and told her of my Motherly Reflects. If I see a curious or naughty hand...I slap it!
*And there was a comment from Jacob in the Costco cart that only the lucky ones get to hear! WoW!
Thanks kids....you always make me smile!

On Saturday we went to Fat Cats to celebrate Ty's moms Birthday. We had pizza and delish breadsticks! After that we bowled. My camera is not working, so there's no pictures from me. Lindsey and I asked her what she wanted to do for her birthday and the only thing she could really think of was Fat Cats. She wanted to celebrate HER birthday by watching her grandkids bowl and play together. Next year we need to have Cam, Meg, J, Brayden and Molly here...her eyes woud just twinkle! On Sunday, after dropping Ty off at the airport, the kids and I went over to her house to have pie with the family. We love Punkin' Pie!
Julie is an amazing Grandma! My kids adore her and she adores them. ALL kids love Julie because they can sense her sweet Spirit. She is very patience and kind. She loves to help out in anyway possible. My favorite is when she gets upset and makes a threat....while she's smiling or laughing! She just loves to love. Contention does not run in her blood. Thanks for being so wonderful. You're the BEST. We hope you had a HAPPY HAPPy BirTHdaY! WE LOVE YOU!!! :)

Yes, he did it AGAIN! This time he stuck an M&M up his left nostril. The first time it was a pea. We blew into his mouth and it shot right out after the second attempt. The second time, he tried but failed with the raisens. Seriously weird and sick all at the same time. So this time, I'm in the kitchen and I hear him make a fuss noise. Madi and I run to him and find him pointing to his nose. I new. I asked him what it was ( I needed to know what I'm looking at) he tells me. I immediately press on the right nostril and blow in his mouth CPR style. JOY! The first attempt was ok, just a bunch of yellow slime came out. It was the YELLOW one!
A kept trying and trying and while I'm on the phone with a nurse, he gives me the sneeze look...so he sneezes and yellow/chocolatey slime comes out. YUCK! I can tell it's trying to melt it's way out. The nurse (trying not to laugh, I could tell) said it would drain through his throat and nose. I figured that, but there was really not that much chocolate draining out his nose. After a couple of minutes of complete stare at the child, I let him go. Guess what he runs back to? The bag of M&M's. A couple of minutes later he comes walking to me and says, "it's out momma." I look in his mouth and yep, it's out, he finished what was left of it with a little crunch. I know, I know!. But when will he learn? WHEN? WHEN? WHEN?

Last night we had a farewell party for the Enloe Family. It was a great turn out. It was fun to see friends. When I first found out that they where moving, I was so upset yet overjoyed for Corey and the family. This IS great for them. GM....WOW, hurray for Cor. We are so proud of you. We know you will be wonderful. This is what you have wanted. Corey deserves this. I have been so busy with things going on with my own family that I had to set aside those bittersweet feelings. After last night the reality has hit me again. We are already planning trips and vacations. Few things will change. It's the small little things that our familiies do together that will be different and that makes me sad. I guess I just have to face the "Fact" that they are moving. Oh my heart hurts. This is the song that seriously popped in my head last night! Funny huh?

Yesterday was a very special day for our family. Madi was baptized. It was perfect in every way. We are so proud of the choice that she made to be baptized. She is a wonderful example to Jacob and Owen. She is a wonderful example to Ty and I as well. I am very grateful for the sweetness of the Spirit that we all felt. We love you.
