YO-YO!

Okay we have had a ball creating the following videos on jibjab.com. We have laughed so hard the last few days watching these. We took silly pictures for the "Elf Yourself" viedo. That is why John looks like a crazy man in these videos. John is a good sport letting us put his picture on everything.

So, what you need to do (before you watch these videos) is, pause the music that is playing right now. Over on the right it says "Good tunes", push pause so that you can hear the music on the videos.

We hope you enjoy these videos as much as we have. We are posting our 5 favorites. We have created so many more (but we will spare you). I think my favorite one is the one with John and Riley dancing. Sorry John!! (I may be in the dog house for this one!)

We think we are pretty funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mature Little Miss

My little Haley is sometimes just a little adult. Lately, in the morning, after watching a little T.V. I will hear the shower running. She will get herself in the shower, turn the water to her favorite temperature (VERY warm), and wash her hair. She knows the right amount of shampoo to pump, she knows to "scritchy scratch, and rubby rub" her shampoo into her hair. Then she just likes to relax in the shower for awhile. When I hear the water, I go in and she is just doing her thing. If she hasn't already washed her hair, she talks me through the process while she does it HERSELF. I can't believe she is only 3. I guess I should be happy about her great hygiene. One of these days she might decide that she doesn't want to shower or bath anymore.

Barf-O-ween

Well, what a Halloween we had this year. I was dreaming peacefully in my bed 3:00 a.m. Oct 31st, when I heard a strange sound. It was one of those familiar sounds that just makes you cringe. Yes, Haley was throwing up in her bed! Hurray!! My favorite thing to do it clean up puke in a bunch of blankets, during the middle of the night. O-O-O-h quick sign me up!!!

Haley continued to throw up all night. The next morning, Jace said he wasn't feeling very good. He said, "Maybe I'm just hungry." So, I filled up a bowl of cereal and set it in front of him. After looking at it for a few minutes he decided he wasn't hungry, but sick. He went and got in bed with his "barf bucket".

Haley and Jace were sick all day, throwing up several times. But, they both deserve a medal for hitting the bucket EVERY single time (with exception to Haley's first out burst). Way to go Jace and Haley!!!!

So, they both had to miss Trick-or-Treating and all the school parties, etc. Jace wasn't able to wear his Mario costume that I actually sewed for him (and I don't even sew) He came up to me and told me he was sorry that I sewed him the costume and he didn't even get to wear it. What a sweet boy!!! Luckily we already had a family Halloween party and he was able to wear it there.

Hopefully next year we will have a better Halloween!

Miss "Sicky"


Mr. "Sicky" (doesn't he look pathetic)


What a cute HIPPY CHIC!


One of Riley's costumes. At the family party, she went as Captin Underpants. When she went trick-or-treating she dressed up as a house wife. I think it looks a little like me. Notice the fly swatter in her hand and rather large behind. LOVELY!
