HALLOWEEN IS IN FULL SWING AT OUR HOUSE!!! I don't know how many people know that my husband and his brother are obsessed with Halloween. They are now creating their fifth haunted house. This will be the fourth they have done since we have been married and they did one in high school. Had I known he loved Halloween so much and that this would be a crazy, very expensive hobby I might have thought differently about the marriage proposal! :)
They did their haunted house the first two years and Staheli Farms and last year they did one there and one at the mall. He would always come home and crawl into bed at 2 in the morning smelling like cow crap but this year they have simplified (I threatened divorce if not!) and now are only doing one at the mall so he doesn't smell as bad. This means, I have long summer nights filled with nothing to do because my husband is gone, hanging out with crazy, odd Halloweeny people building "his haunt." Our Halloween season usually starts in February when they start having their meetings. Thats right, they have Halloween meetings! They discuss props, new rooms, old rooms, people, ideas... that sort of boring thing. I think its great my husband is so creative, but really hunny Halloween!? I wish he could decorate my house with his creativeness. Just not with blood, skulls and weird clowns. Anyway, the planning part goes until May and then they start building. You think they would be smart and build it before it gets hot but whats the fun in working in a cool semi trailer when you can work in it when it is 130 degrees inside! This goes until the middle of November usually because they have to put on "production" and then "break down" So I shouldn't say that Halloween starts in February, I should say, our Halloween break ends in February. So, once again I am a widow until November! I should have known he loved Halloween so much when I went to my in-laws Halloween party before we were married. What was I thinking?! :)
No honestly, they do a great job and it is always a success (even though the money goes to pay for all of the props and such).

Well as some of you may know, I love Tiger Woods. I have been "obsessed" with him since the 8th grade. My sister thinks I would have his baby. And I probably would if the child support paid enough! I'm sure Brent wouldn't mind having a cute little Tiger baby running around. I don't ever watch golf unless he is winning (why else watch it?!). Well this weekend was the US Open and he won once again. Of course. Anyway, way to go baby to win your 3rd US Open!!! (They just said that on TV. I really don't watch golf!)
I'm sorry this post is a day late....
I want you to know, I'm glad you are my mate
and asked me out on our very first date
I never thought you would be
the best father to Kenna and Mr. G
You are so wonderful to them you see
That is right, you are a great and wonderful Daddee!
You are oh so very crazy,
but I reckon it is better than being lazy!
We hope you had a great Daddy Day
We love you so much and thats all we have to say!

Today was Thursday (storytime) and so I decided to brave it and face "THE MOTHER" Now, at first I wondered if she would be there with her kids, or if they were just so terrified of Makenna that she didn't come back. Well, they were tough enough and we saw them there. She eyed me down. I eyed her down (dun dun dun). Makenna went and sat down on the rug and listened and sang and had a gay ol' time. I know she kept an eye on Kenna the whole time (as did I) and her boys. Makenna was really good and then I had packed a lunch for Makenna and Camryn so we had them start eating it and I had to go pick Brent up from Zion Motors. After I dropped him off to go rescue Janalyn I went and got lunch and came back and this is what happened. I was sitting there and "THE MOTHER" was up on top of the stairs. Makenna was playing in the little canal thing minding her own business when one of the boys came and tackled Kenna from behind and knocked her to the ground! The mom didn't do ANYTHING! So, being the protective mother I am, went up to "the mother" (mind you Brent has Makenna) and I lost it. I was shaking, sweating and almost in tears. I said, "Dude, whats your problem?! Are you kidding me?! If you have something against my mothering and letting my kid push around yours, let me know (as she did last week), but don't have your FIVE year old little boy take it out on my little girl because she "touched" him last week! What kind of a mother are you?! You have some major issues lady!" and then I said, "YOU'RE FAT!" I flipped my hair, huffed and walked off to go comfort my little miss! Can you believe that!? Seriously! The nerve of some women!

Are you wondering if those are shoes that you see?! Yes. As a matter of fact they are. I think I counted at least three pair. We could kind of play an I Spy game with all of the crap in her bed. At least she was asleep. I wish I was asleep..... maybe I'll go get some shoes!
Makenna to say the least is boy crazy! Thats right. My sweet little two year old is in love with princes and dark headed boys. She loves Aladdin, Eric, Diego, Papi (Dora's Dad) and Mike Nielsen. Her recent crush is James Marsden. She saw his picture on the DVD case 27 Dresses and now she carries it around saying "It's PAPI!" She sleeps with the case, brings it to our bed in the morning with her blankie, and carries it randomly throughout the day. She also sometimes puts it in the middle of the living room and dances to Aladdin. Anyway, I think it is cute right now, but kind of nervous that she is already obsessing over boys! :) Oh well... at least she is into princes!

PS. Last night was a blast ladies! We should really do it a lot more often.
PPS. I'm sorry I've posted so many boring things lately. And I have posted a lot too.
PPPS. (or is it PSSS) Either way. My shin isn't broken. I can finally walk tonight, but I did whack my head freaking hard on my counter tonight. I didn't cry or swear though. YEA ME!
PSSSSS. It's too bad we didn't get a picture of our sweet shin guards!
PS. The library has a lot of corners for time out!

Joys (besides the obvious)
3. Watching my kids sleep
1. That the Twilight movie isn't going to be as good as the books.
2. That I will never lose my baby gut.
3. That Gavin will never sleep through the night. :)
Goals1. Eat healthier (except on weekends)
2. Quit watching as much TV
3. Lose a few more pounds
1. The Office (seriously I could watch it all day!)
2. Celebrity crap... well, I wouldn't call it an obsession, but I am always curious about it.
3. Food. (I LOVE to eat!)
Random Surprising Facts
1. I am SO embarrassed to admit this, but I'm going to (big breath). I have watched (and still do) Days of our Lives since the 8th grade. Thats right. I think that makes it 12 years. Is that not embarrassing?! Fortunately, there is DVR so I can watch the show in about 15 minutes. I don't even like it. I don't watch it every day though! I watch it because it is a BAD habit! And don't worry for all of you that have watched it in the past. Bo and Hope are still together and Sami is still up to her crazy old tricks!
2. I could probably eat 10 bowls of cereal in one sitting. I love all types of sugary cereal. If there is not enough sugar on it, I will add some! :) Fruity Pebbles and Apple Jacks are my favorites.
3. I don't know who knows this or not, but I have a twin brother whom I am 9 minutes older than. My first "real" kiss was with a twin, and I married a twin! Crazy eh?!
I tag Kengie, Alli & Misty!

Makenna the other day asked me if I wanted her to wipe my bum. I told her no and she proceeded to ask me if I needed her to wipe other areas. Once again I told her no and she went on her way! Later that night I heard her say she was going to watch Brent go potty. So she goes in (she's two remember so we think its not a big deal) and she asked him if he wanted her to wipe his bum and "JJ" is what we call it. I didn't hear the rest of the conversation until she came running into the kitchen saying "DADDY HAS A WEINER! DADDY HAS A WEINER!" I about died laughing. It was so shocking and hilarious. I didn't even know what to say. So Brent came in and said "What else was I supposed to tell her? I don't have a JJ!" Anyway, I'm not against telling my kids the correct body parts, but probably not when she is 2! Either way. Pretty dang funny!
