Things that go Bump in the Night

We decided to sleep on the tramp tonight and what a sight it was. Tanner wanted to tell ghost stories so went and got the flash light and started our scary stories. They weren't really scary in that sense of the word, But scary how hilarious they were and how funny the kids were while telling them. Kylie's was a about a bear that was nice. Tanners was about moose. Sydneys was about a princess. wow totally scary...... so it was my turn. hee.hee I told the famous story of " I gotcha where i want yah now i'm gonna eat yah.... Remember . Lets just just say i got them good.

Kylie wanted her picture taken, its was pretty dark so i couldn't see what she was up to until the flash went off. Her head was no longer there. She is such a clever girl...

Then there was Tanner who tried but couldn't hide his head to well... i guess he was trying to be Qwazmotto ( the Hunchback of Notre Dame ).

Sydney just wanted a picture of her with the flash light trying to be scary during our ghost stories.

We had so much fun ,Rick had to work early so he did not get the chance to sleep out there. The stars were really pretty so were the bugs... j/k i ended up going in around 5:00. a.m. My kids like to roll and kick and move all over when they sleep and i was getting kicked and punched and bitten ( by bugs of course, they must love my blood cause the kids hardly got touched) They want to do this every night crazy kids....

Yes,I can have my Cake and eat it to.

I know that is was in may 2008, but rick just download this pic from his phone and i had to show all of you. Some of you have heard the story all ready ,sorry just read fast or act like you have heard it for the first time. hee.heee
Here is the cake ( a yummy cheesecake) that rick and i had at a wonderful restaurant in Texas. When we went on our trip to Texas in may and my in-laws watched our yahoos while we had a wonderful evening/morning for our anniversary. Rick and i had planned that Texas would be our family trip for the summer and a nice dinner was our 10th anniversary. Rick on the other hand had planned something much bigger, Which i had no clue what i was in store for He planned for a limo to come and pick us up ( he tried to find one that was like the one he got us for when we got married) we ate at a place called Vic and Anthony's ( they place the napkin in your lap for you and there is no prices on the menu) it was really good and my lobster was ( I had not clue and if i had known i would not have gotten it) $70 yikes i know... at the end they brought out a little dessert for us which was the cheese cake and it had a candle in it and we had to make a wish and blow it out together. It was so good it melted in your mouth. (Rick used his phone to take a picture so the its a little grainy sorry) I thought that the night was over but we drove around Houston until the limo stopped in front of a huge building and we went in and rick had bought tickets for a Broadway play of the Wedding singer, it was hilarious and then we headed back to my in-laws ( or i thought ) and we pulled up in front of an huge old house. It reminded me of the old houses in the south (like gone with the wind) and we stayed at a bed and breakfast for the night. They had candles burning every where in the room it was breath taking some thing you would see in a movie. The best of all of this was not only did i have no clue ( which isn't very hard to do) but he had taken money out of his checks for 3 months so that he could pay for all of this and i had no clue , He had the room and tickets and the restaurant and limo reserved for those months. He is the Best, i wish that i was that good. We didn't plan to get each other gifts because we spent it all on our trip to Texas so the poor guy did all of this and what did i do.....Nothing,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,what a wife huh?

Pretty In Pink

Kylie's Dance Academy put on the ballet of Sleeping Beauty. Kylie was way excited. They actually did a really good job. It was so cute to see all of the girls all dressed in cute tutu's. Kylie's class were part of the good fairies. Heather and Christine took some really good pic's of Kylie and her class, mine did not turn out as well. I love the pic of kylie and her class in the black and white pic. They are were watching the play when they weren't in it. Its just so sweet and cute and so innocent (which i want Kylie to stay as long as possible) The only problem we have is now Sydney thinks that she gets to have kylie's outfit now that she is not in the play and it seems to be a never ending battle who gets it now.....:) (Kylie is the 3rd one on the right)

Our Olympic Hero

Rick and his cub scouts had a great time at their cub Olympics. From some of the Pic's it looks like the leaders are having more fun then the kids. They had a great time. The Cubs had a great time, they had to do a relay with home made stilts and race on a big wheel while wearing a hat and a scooter. There was a tissue toss and cotton ball balance. It was a good time. They even got to have their own medal ceremony with the Olympic music. We are so proud of rick and his acheivements.

A chip off the old block

Saturday Night as i was flipping the hamburgers, the girls were in the hot tub swimming around. They decided to put their goggles on and try to see under water, when out of the blue the stairs in the hot tub jumped and bite Kylie in the tooth, or should i say she tried to take a bite out of it. Needless to say the stairs won and Kylie was left holding the chip. I called the dentist, he said to bring her in on Monday. I took the before and after picture to show what a wonderful job he did. If all goes well she won't need a crown until she is in her teens.

When she chipped her tooth all you could hear between the tears and sobs was

" My Precious Tooth" We had a nick name of chip or chippy for a few days but we can't call her that now.
