Birthday Boy!

He's 45 now! He insisted on 45 candles (or was that Jayce and Jordan?) Well, I do remember Jayce saying that he hoped the house would burn down because of all the candles so we can go live in the apartments with Jonathon- Sounds fun- kinda?!?
So the big guy got some new runners and the entire "Indiana Jones" collection! Jayce felt certain "That dad will really enjoy those movies!" Jayce sure likes them- He has been playing Indiana Jones for the past two days, he even had me crochet a long string to keep in his pocket so he can pull it out like a whip. He was impressed with my crocheting too:) I wonder if Ross pretends like he's Indiana Jones when no one is looking?? Happy Birthday OLD MAN! We love you!

Have you heard?

Baylie was playing soccer in Mesquite NV last weekend. It was warm and sunny during the day so our Jayce decides to "suntan". This picture is of him catching some rays on his six-pack. When one of the dads asked why he had his shirt pulled up he said "Thats what Baylie does when she suntans."

Speaking of Baylie- Have you heard??? She had a mouse in her make-up bag.
She isnt one to really freak out so she quietly pulled me aside- and she calmly tells me that she has a mouse in her make-up bag. Its dead. Her toothbrush was in the bag and she just brushed her teeth.
So I sneak into the bathroom and take a peek- and sure enough there is this tiny little mouse in the corner of her bag and its little dead eye-ball is staring at me. So of course I turn the matter over to Ross- he loves stuff like this, I think!
He looks in and empties out the bag, carefully, so as not to disturb the little thing and the takes it to the garage and bangs the bag over the trash can. The mouse does not budge. He tries again and still it does not fall out of the bag. SO he goes out into the sun where he can get a good look before he sticks his hand and pulls it out-- and this is what he found! FUNNY- that's a cotton ball with a black eye-ball and a rubber band for a tail!

This weeks favorites......

Jayce has an "arch nemesis" - I don't love that he has someone in his little world that he dis-likes, and realistically I think he likes her but he doesn't like it when she gets on his "best friend" Ella's nerves- so he calls her his arch nemesis. I never hear the name- just "Mom, my arch nemesis was really bossy today." "My arch nemesis was on the slide so we had to play on the grass." "We were running until our arch nemesis came over, then we stopped." Remember when we were in Kindergarten and we just said "I don't like you"- and left it at that. Did we even know this word "arch nemesis?"

And the fun doesn't stop there- today after we picked up Baylie from school he says, "AHH, now that felt good." What felt good- "I just gave myself a wedgie in the back. I think I will do it in the front too." Then we hear "OUCH- That didn't feel so good. But its okay." Then he was silent for the rest of the ride. Bay and I try hard to not react too much to his weirdness- we don't want to encourage it- so neither of us said anything- I take that back- I did ask Bay if she enjoys giving herself wedgies also- but other than that- silence. When he got out of the car he spent a few minutes in the garage rearranging the unders and he hasn't done it again so I hoped he learned a valuable lesson today!

And Baylie- well this week alone we have forked out $145.00 to register her for the High school La Cross team. Does she even know how to play La Cross?? I have no idea. But I do know that she better LOVE it. Because after the registration fees came the "stick" and "goggle" purchase- another $145 bucks for the cheap-ohs. They threw the mouth guard and ball in for free- which was really nice because I could not have paid a dollar for the ball and 1.99 for the mouth guard. Seriously.

And then there's the lego's up his nose- well- I will save that one for later cuz I have to run back to the school to get my favorite La Cross player!

Heavenly Father,
Thank You for the human species. Thank You for robots. Thank You for the planets. Thank You for the universe. Thank You for the aliens on Pluto. Please bless them with more than one eye so they can see better. Thank You for evolution. Thank You for letting us be apes when we get old. Thank You for Baylie's appetite coming back so she can eat everything in the house with me.

Heavenly Father,
Please help me raise this child well! I love him. Thank You for bringing him to this planet. Please don't let me turn into an ape when I get old. Please help us to be able to afford Baylies eating habits.
