Happy Birthday Baby!

My littlest boy turned 5! oh my goodness, where did the time go? We celebrated with a Spongebob filled day. From his clothes to his cake, everything was Spongebob!

Happy birthday to the not-so-little boy that will always be my baby!

Got Yarn?

This is Izzy. Odd name, yes. But she's an odd cat.

The only thing she does that is cat-like is her love of yarn. Wow, it's like feline crack to her. But that's where the catness ends. She thinks she is a dog. She follows me around like a shadow. Literally underfoot. She answers questions with a very strange almost yelling at me meow. If you ask her if she wants a "treat" she answers you and follows you into the kitchen. Izzy likes to eat scraps off of the floor that the kids drop. (much to my dismay, since it's not good for her. I stop her when I get the chance, I promise!). But she will eat anything. Cheetos, chex mix. Fruit. It doesn't matter. If it falls on the floor, she runs like a happy little puppy to get to it before I do. She plays fetch. She chews on shoes. Very odd but quite funny furry little creature. :)

Random quote

This one had me laughing out loud!

Getting down on all fours and imitating a rhinoceros stops babies from crying. I don't know why parents don't do this more often. Usually it makes the kid laugh. Sometimes it sends him into shock. Either way it quiets him down. If you're a parent, acting like a rhino has another advantage. Keep it up until the kid is a teenager and he definitely won't have his friends hanging around your house all the time. ~P.J. O'Rourke

Funny haha's a'la Abby and Owen

Owen: Mommy, can I take a bath?
Me: No, Owen, but you can take one after dinner.
Owen: but Moooooooommmmmm! I smell like a pelican's antlers!
Me: hmm. that's pretty smelly. maybe you should get in the tub. LOL!!!!!!!!!

Abby: knock knock
me: who's there?
Abby: Banana
Me: Banana who?
Abby: Banana fell on the box's head

Daddy: Owen, do you have a girlfriend?
Owen: no. ewww
Mommy: I thought Gloria was your girlfriend?!
Owen: oh yeah, Gloria is my girlfriend!
Mommy: are you going to marry her and have gorgeous blonde haired, blue eyed babies?
Owen: No way, I don't like babies! They smell like poop.

Abby: mommy, can Izzy drive my barbie car? I want some french fries and she said she'd go get me some. (Izzy is a cat, btw LOL)

I love the simple funnies from my little ones. They grow up too fast!

In 3 weeks.....

In just 3 short weeks we will be moving from here

to here

Since gas prices are so darn high

we have decided to live on base.

Dh will have gone from a 1.25 hour commute each way to a 2 minute commute. Plus, we will have a commissarry on base to grocery shop at. A movie theater. A beach. Lots of pools. A bowling alley. Lots of restaurants. Parks. It made sense to do this. At least we will not have to write that ugly $1800 a month rent check anymore!!

Plus, how much more secure can you feel living in your home where the guards at your "gated community" carry machine guns? lol

Nick (who is going to be a senior in high school) was very upset knowing he had to leave his high school and start a new one being the "new guy with no friends" will now be in the same boat as about 1/4 of the high school. So now he's not as upset knowing that it shouldn't be as hard as he thought making friends. He wants to be a marine biologist, and the school he is looking at is only an hour away from base. So if Travis doesn't promote or get OCS (officer candidate school) like he is hoping for, I'll be just a short distance away from my first born. I told dh that when he moves out, I get a purse-sized dog to keep me company. that's my baby, 17 years old and almost 6 feet tall. but will always be my baby :(

I love this site!

How much fun is this site??!! I love to look at all of the fun and off the wall gadgets, gizmos, and toys they have!

Here are a couple of my favorites:


I can spend hours on here looking for hilarious goodies!

Matt's 8 foot bullwhip and some monkeys

Did the title catch your attention? haha!! Indiana Matt and his leather jacket and hat cracked me up. He had to show off his whipping skills and drag his BIL and my 17 year old son into the fun. LOL. Not one of them got out of it without lashings on their bodies. Boys and their toys.


Matt again

Matt's BIL, Jason

My 17 year old, Nick

My 17 year old's self inflicted lashing:

and here are the little ones having some yummy cupcakes for an early Birthday celebration for Owen. (he'll be 5 the 31st)


You know it's bad when people are standing on the freeway!

We're just trying to get over the bridge, and our exit is RIGHT after it.

Hmmm. What to do while I'm waiting?

Is tape on a big-rig a safe thing? LOL

Whew, finally on the bridge!

Almost there! Aren't the trees pretty?

Yay, we're here!
