Alexandra antics

Tuesday night We were praying before bed. Sebastian prayed, then Alexandra. She went on and on about her dog, her bed and such. Then Paul starts to pray. He prays for work and a family member and so on. Alexandra is sitting on my lap and she leans her head back and closes her eyes. Then she starts to snore while Paul is praying. I almost fell off the bed laughing. It was so funny.

I heard foot steps up stairs tonight so I headed up to see what was going on. Alexandra was out of her bed and said she was playing with Buddy and she was sorry. I asked her to get back into bed and to stay there. She wanted a hug and kiss and as I hugged her she said "Mommy, I love you so much I could hug you forever"! How sweet and precious.

Wordless Wednesday - Dancing fools!

I've seen the light

Two nights ago I walked past Alexandra and Sebastian's room at 8:30PM to find the light underneath the door on. I walked in and told Alexandra it was bedtime and she couldn't have the light on. She told me sorry and then said they were just reading books. I said she could do that tomorrow morning. She said she needed light to read. I told her she had the small kitty light. She looked at me and said "mommy, that's not enough light to read!". When I told Paul that he about fell on the ground. I told him, you know where she gets that from right? He probably said the same thing to his mom at some point in his life.

It's going to get busy

Today Atticus is 1! He is such a cutie and we are celebrating tonight with family. Alexandra has been with Grandma and Grandpa for the last 24 hours and will return tonight with G and G for the party. It's been interesting having just the boys. Even our sitter was excited to see how things would be different today without Alexandra here. It's good for her to be with G and G but It'll be nice to see her as well. Tonight my mom and step dad come into town from Florida and we have a pig roast to go to tomorrow for a friend of Paul's from work. Whew! A lot but a lot of fun too!

Happy Birthday Atticus!

Abe Lincoln's face

This article was front page on this morning:

Abe Lincoln's face was lopsided. I say, who cares? Why should this be on the front page of Yahoo. Don't we all have deformities? None of us have perfect faces or bodies so why is this such big news?

A Comfy Easy PC

Alexandra is always wanting to use my computer. I sometimes log on to and play around with her. This comfy easy pc would be awesome for her and then for the boys as well as they get older. If you have a kid that would this would be good for as well, enter over at

I've seen the writing on the wall and the poop on the floor

Yes you read that right with in a 18 hour period, Sebastian took a crayon to our wall in the living room and Atticus figured out how to take his diaper off and throw it and poop on the floor of MY bedroom. Paul and I were chatting at the kitchen table on Thursday night and we are oblivious to the fact that Sebastian is right around the corner with a purple crayon making his own "work of art" on the wall. I felt like I handled it pretty well and Paul held him while he helped me clean the wall up. He did a really good job and I gave him a high five at the end of the cleaning job. The next day Erin came and watched the kids like normal. I got back, went to check on Atticus up stairs. I start to smell the dirty diaper in the stairway. I look in the room, Atticus is sleeping like a little angel with poop all over the bed, the diaper on the floor along with more poop. Can you believe it? Alexandra did the same thing when she was just a little younger than him. I went back downstairs, took in some fresh air and then shared the horrible story with Erin. About an hour later, after I had cleaned up the mess and gave Atticus a bath, Erin came upstairs bearing a peach cobbler. It was so nice of her. She said she knew she had two options, she could come and help me clean it up or make a peach cobbler, so she made a peach cobbler. I can't blame her for that. It was so nice and thoughtful of her. This one goes down in the record book as a crazy 1/2 a day. What scares me is that with these two boys I'm sure it's going to get a whole lot worse! :)

Plumber Heather Strikes again!

Our bathroom sink got plugged up AGAIN. I tried all the natural ways to unplug it, vinegar and baking soda and it only made the problem worse. So I decided in the heat of the day to take everything out of the cabinet, take off the trap and try to put drain cleaner right down into the wall. Now the actual plan wasn't bad, it was the smell. I'm not sure what caused it but after I put the drain cleaner in, a horrible, wreched rotten egg smell started to come from the sink drain. Oh, it was awful. I took the box fan and pointed it out the window in the bathroom but it was still bad. Paul came home and thought it was dinner. He wasn't trying to be mean he was trying to be nice but didn't know that I had tried to tackle the sink. He went to Menards to get some thing including more drain cleaner. I tried the snake again down the pipe but I couldn't get it to be unplugged. Paul got to it later in the evening and he got it unplugged. Other than the smell the worst part was the black water in my sink and no being able to use the sink to wash hands and brush teeth. Even though I had black stuff all over my shirt and pants, plus the rug on the floor, I have a working sink in the bathroom now! Yeah!!!!

Another site like craigslist

I just found a site just like Craigslist. It's by Ebay and it's called Just don't ask me to pronounce it.

I went there and Kalamazoo was on the list along with a lot of other Michigan cities. I believe this is new that's why I wanted to let you know about it.

Random bursts of Laughter

On Wednesday night we picked the kids up from my dad and Karen and Alexandra asked if I would play the "Happy" song. It's the song "Happy" by Ayiesha Woods. So while we're listening to the song, Sebastian just starts laughing and I mean belly laughs. When he does that he makes us laugh. I asked Alexandra if she knew what he was laughing at and she said "NO"! I think she was irritated that he was interrupting her Happy song. Anyway, Paul and I thought it was awesome that he was just randomly laughing during the song.
