I am getting frustated! I download all of my photos using Picasa and then put them on my blog through Picasa too. I am having major problems with Picasa right now - it is losing my pics and won't let me get on Blogger. I am also having problems acessing Picasa. So, I will have my technical team (Derek) look into this and hopefully we will get this resolved soon. I have some good pictures to post!
This morning Jack wanted me to play with him but Emma was crying for me so I held her and I told Jack that he was old enough to entertain himself. He said "no I'm not, and I don't even know what entertain means anyway!". So Jack!

Due to technical difficulties - I lost all my photos from the weekend, grrr - and 2 sick little kiddos, I will not be updating the blog for a few days. Jack has an ear infection and Emma has a viral infection. Not much sleep and a whole lotta cryin - and that's just me, you should see the kids!

Pearly whites

I got miss Emma a new toothbrush and toothpaste this week. Every time we go into the bathroom (I haven't gone to the bathroom by myself for 5 and a half years by the way!) she gets out her toothbrush and wants to brush her teeth. When I gave her this toothbrush she tried to turn it on, her brother has one that makes music so she thought hers did too. She is way too smart.
She is talking so much and imitates everything her big brother does. She says "yets" (yes) all the time, "peas" and "tank ooh". When she wakes up she says "mommy, I neeeeed oooooh" and if she is looking for someone or one of the animals she says "where awww ooooh". Ugh, I just love her...

Happy Valentine's Day!

Hope you all had a good Valentine's Day - we did! Grandma came this weekend and brought Valentine's gifts for the kiddos. Jack finally got the Bendaroos he has been seeing on tv and wanting for-ev-er! Thanks Grandma-now he will not ask for them every single time the commercial comes on. I told him he had to save up his $$ for them if he wanted them because they were expensive, so when Christie gave them to him Jack asked her how much they cost! Emma got the cutest little musical tea set too. Derek and I got to go out for awhile while Grandma stayed with the kids. We had a great dinner. Thanks Gamma ;o)
In honor of Valentine's Day here are 10 things I love (besides my hubby, kids, family, dogs, cat,yada, yada, yada....)
Wild Cherry Pepsi
Vera Bradley anything
My cozy huge bed and clean flannel sheets
Hee Haw (don't judge!)
Gain detergent and fabric softener (I need to get a life)
Watching tv in bed
the movie Doc Hollywood
getting my hair done
ok - so I didn't think I was so lame but after seeing this in print maybe I am a total lame-o!!!!!!

get over it

Geez oh pete - so Michael Phelps hit a bong, let it go. Don't we have any bigger news today?
We are boring around here this week - can you tell?! No new pictures, no recipes, no cute sayings. Zip....
I am going out today - all by myself ;o) can't wait! Getting my hair did and running errands - all by myself. Did I mention all by myself? that means no kiddos. ahhhhh....all by myself!
Big Valentine's weekend - I'm sure my hubs has something real special planned, he's like that and all, not.

my babies

These are pictures of Jack and Emma when they were 10 months old. Sweet, sweet babies. I just read about a family that unexpectedly lost their 10 month old baby girl. They took her to the Dr. for an ear infection and she never got to come home. She passed away 3 weeks later from cancer. My heart hurts for them. I don't know what I would do without these two blue eyed cuties...

the pout

Last weekend Darcey, Brice, Christina, Jason and Jaiden came over and we played Rock Star on the Wii - so fun! Jack really likes to play the drums and to sing - but only one song - Eye of the Tiger! So, we just told him it wasn't his turn yet and he brought out the pout - he has this look down pat ;o) and it worked - he got to sing Eye of the Tiger. So cute! Little miss Emma will be singing before we know it. Good weekend - no police!

the Superbowl and the po-po

We had a little get together for the Superbowl yesterday, really just used the game as an excuse to get together and eat lots of yummy food! We had a great time, until the police showed up!!! Most everyone left pretty early so it was just us and our friends Jason and Christina and their baby Jaedin. So the guys were downstairs watching the game and Christina and I were up with the kids and the doorbell rang. it was maybe 7:30 so I thought this was weird. I went to the front door - no one there. So I think those idiots downstairs are trying to play some joke on us :o) well then I see a flashlight out back on the deck - there is a doorbell there too- so I open the door and there is a SHERRIF!!! I soiled myself, really. So he says -sherrif, wehad a 911 call from this address blah, blah, do you spell sheriff by the way? hmm... back to the story, this guy is pretty easy on the eyes, so the guys are upstairs by now and I invite the hot little deputy (since I can't spell sheriff) in the house and he explains that the call was not made on a regular phone but maybe an old cell or a 911 only phone. So I immediately think of my precious little Illinois cheerleader. But it was not her. thank you lord. So then the hunk of deputy meat says somehow the call was "triangulated" (he said it real sexy farm boy though) to this address. Then he says the dispatcher heard Hannah Montana in the background, and a little giggle and a little voice said 10-4. Uh yah - you need to go next door, to the brand new house, with the 6 year old girl!!! We were dying! The deputy was so nice - and hot, did I mention that? So, today Christina and I are gettin all dolled up, hiring a babysitter and callin 911!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
