You said what?!?

Drove through Taco Bell and hubby tried to order... "I'll take three hard shell soft tacos" The lady didn't understand him so he repeated "I'll take three hard shell soft tacos" Still didn't understand. He immediately told the boys to be quiet and waived at me to not interrupt. A third time... I finally pointed out the hard/soft taco issue... he eventually got it right and laughed at himself!

Black Friday Miracle...

Have never went shopping on Black Friday, but Walmart's ad for Nintendo DS for $89 was enticing... contemplated waking up early, but I love sleep too much. I was willing, however, to wake up and throw on clothes to head off to Wally World at 9:30 'just to see if by chance any were left'... I scored 2 Nintendo DS's and JD is going to poop when he finds out I also landed the XBOX 360 he has wanted forever!!!

A money lesson...

Went out for sushi tonight with great friends... Sean decided to swipe some coins from their wishing well... I explained that he can't do that because it's stealing... 'But I like money!'

The great State of...

Picked Ethan up from school today and I asked if he told his teacher that he went to visit his Aunt and Uncle... he said that he tried but he couldn't remember what State they lived in... 'Illinois.' 'NOOOOO... the STATE they live in...' 'Chicago?!?' 'That's it!' I wasn't aware there's a State of Chicago... I also wasn't aware that Ottawa is not in Canada, it's a city in Illinois!

Pre-Thanksgiving in Chicago...


We spent the weekend before Thanksgiving visiting Uncle Kenny and Aunt Ally in Chicago... so much fun!  Especially when Grandma and Grandpa came to visit and brought Uncle Mike and Jamie!  If that wasn't enough, Grandma K drove up with Great Grandma!  We are so blessed with such great family!


Pillow Fight!!!



Grandpa's having a good time with the boys!


Uncle Kenny shares the boys' passion for video games... what a great surprise when the original Nintendo made the trip home with us!








The train ride in and out of the city was fun!



Thanks for letting us come visit you Uncle Kenny and Aunt Ally!  We had so much fun!

Mental connection...

Hubby is on his way home from Utah... he randomly text messaged that I 'was funny!' Don't know what I did and I haven't talked to him all day... Cripes! Have we made it to that point in our relationship where he channels my funny thoughts?!?

Woo-Hoo!!!

Just found out that I am a member of the new ABQ improv group - Lizard Improv! Woo-hoo! Let's bring on the funny!

Hump, Humpy, Lump...


Best Wig and Wine Party EVER! Vic sure does know how to throw a party! Karaoked to songs I didn't even know... we'll see if I ever get invited back or called again for that matter! LOL!!! Lots of fun... thanks Vic!

Best Audition EVER!!!

Had the 'Best audition EVER' last night for a new Improv group here in Albuquerque... not saying I got the part, just saying it was a heck of a lotta fun doing improv with the director!

Car-go...

Sean wants to know "if we fly to Chicago do we walk on the sidewalk to Uncle Kenny's house or drive... cause we aren't going to have our car with us!" He's amazed by the concept that Uncle Kenny owns a car and we can ride in it!

Hubby got his Swerv on...

Had a great time at the Marine Corps Ball last night... JD got his 'swerv' on in a major way (that's what he called it)... apparently a couple rum and cokes make my Marine karaoke! He was so funny! Happy Birthday to all the Marines out there and thanks to all our veterans for their service!

My third eye...

Marine Corps Ball in two days... glad that my body felt I could pull off a huge zit on the bridge of my nose smack dab in the middle of my eyes... who am I kidding?!? It's a third eye! So glad I'm in my 30's and dealing with zits on 'prom night' all over again!

Scary writing on the door...




Spent the morning painting Sean's name off the front door... had conversations about writing his name on the front door... or anywhere else for that matter!

A boy and his guinea pigs...

I remember my brother as a boy playing with his sweet little hamster Numb Nuts (he named it himself)... Michael used to spend lots of time building vehicles out of Legos for his hamster to ride around in.  In fact, when we inherited a few large containers of Legos from Grandma we ran across one of those very hamster vehicles.  This inevitable need to make 'rodents' mobile is either encoded in the genes and passed down through Uncle Mike or it is a very male trait... as Ethan and Sean's guinea pigs have been made mobile!


Ms. Fluffy Pants says 'Ahoy Mate!'


Peanut may be new, but she looks like she's got her 'sea legs' on...
