You can't leave footprints in the sands of time if you're sitting on your butt. And who wants to leave butt prints in the sands of time?

Comments of the Day

Well first thing today we had some really good comments from the boys.

First Clayton walked outside and yelled to me "MOM! The sky has fallen." It was foggy when we woke up.

Second comment of the day we were getting ready to walk out the door and Carson could not get his shoes tied so I told him to get into the truck and have his sister help him he replies. "I don't want her to help me she is annoying me."

To funny I just love these kids and the things that they say!

Flu Shots

Well two Wednesdays ago we took the kids in for their flu shots. My mom picked them up from school and broke the news to them that they were going to go get flu shots. MaKayla was upset and started crying the boys were fighting over who got to go first they both wanted to go first. So by the time they arrived at the clinic MaKayla was all red eyed from crying and the boys still did not decide who got to go first. So we all go into the shot room Carson climbs up on the table and gets his shot he did so well he just whimpered a little bit while he was getting his shot MaKayla had backed up into the corner and started to cry. So we decided she should go next and just get it over with. My mom and I had to drag her to the table and put her on it at this point she is screaming bloody murder. We hold her down the nurse pokes her with the needle and Makayla pulls away. So she pokes her again half way through giving her the shot she suddenly stops screaming and says "oh it does not hurt that bad". Well what do you think we have been trying to tell her this whole time. After the whole ordeal. It was Clayton's turn he jumps up on the table pulls his sleeve up on his shirt and took it like a big bog no whining or anything!

Shots they don't hurt that bad but kids seem to just get all worked up about them. It just make me laugh so hard that half way through MaKayla's shot she stops screaming because she realizes it's not that bad.

Well it's been a few weeks since my last post. It's not that I did not have anything to post about I just have not had the time to post. I have been really busy with work, kids, just plain playing, and filling orders. So I have a few minutes this evening and decided to do some updating. Hope everyone is doing well. Happy Fall! Hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather.

Mom the door is locked

Today there was a lot of frost on the truck. So I grabbed the remote and started it a few minutes before we left. Well Makayla went out to get into the truck and came back in saying the truck door was locked I told her yes they are locked I started the truck with the remote she says "oh okay". I didn't think anything of it. So we all head out to the truck to get in I unlock the truck doors the boys tried to open the door and say "mom the doors are locked" I tell them no they are not I just unlocked them. I go to open my door it would not open it was frozen shut. We had a heck of a time getting those doors open they were froze shut really good.


Today I was in the shower when I hear a knock on the bathroom door before I can say anything the door flies open it was Clayton.

Clayton "mom I just killed a big earwig it was bigger than a normal earwig I squashed it with a big boot. If you would like to look at it it's underneath the big boot out here."

Me " okay thank you"

A few minutes later he flings the door open again and he tells me.

"mom I got a napkin and cleaned the big squashed earwig up it was nasty!"

Too funny these kids make me laugh so hard the things they do and say are just priceless.

Heart Chowder

Tuesday night we took some stuff out to Tyson at work. That day Tyson had found a present for me and it was a good present too. He went to his lunch box and grabbed it. It was a potato shaped like a sweet is that. I know I know pretty weird in a normal persons eye but I thought it was sweet and I loved it. I never said we were normal. So that night I went home and make some Heart Chowder AKA Clam Chowder. Yummy!

He is hitting me in the head.......

One morning I go upstairs because I hear a lot of yelling. When walking into the boys room Clayton is chocking Carson and Carson is hitting Clayton in the head. I tell them to knock it off. At this point the conversation goes like this

Clayton "mom he's hitting me in the head."

Me "well I would be hitting you in the head too if you were chocking me."

He looks at me with a puzzled look and removes his hands from Carson's neck. Carson stops hitting him in the head. Simple solution don't chock someone and they will not hit you in the head.

What do you say?

A few weeks ago I was talking to a customer service rep. to fix a problem with a program on my computer. There was silence on the line we were waiting for the computer to do it's thing when all of a sudden Clayton come down and yells "mom can I use your bathroom I need to poop." At that point I was hoping the lady on the other end of the phone did not hear him but my luck she did. She was laughing so hard I didn't know what to say I was so embarrassed. Kids say the funnest things and yep they say them at the worst time to.
