3- I will not share my milk, but have no problem sharing other drinks (there is something about milk on the rim of the cup with it not being yours!!)
4- I love to play "superhero's" with my boys (actions figures) but for the life of me I do not know how to play cars, besides crashing them into each other I struggle with make believe on those!
5- I am deathly SCARED of mice and ants
6- I am a -in the closet- reality Tv Show, the game show Deal or No Deal, and HGTV (real estate shows) Junkie thank goodness I don't have time to watch a lot of these.

A Mormon for President?

Something political to think about.... My husband would be so proud I posted this!!

President Of The U.S.?
--By David Shurtleff (Not A Mormon)

Heliumites, Bloggers, Political Scientists ... lend me your eyes. I come to criticize Mitt Romney not to praise him. The evil that men do is highlighted by the media. The good is often buried under labels ... so let it be with Romney.
The Media has touted that Romney is a Mormon, if it is so, it is a grievous thing and may cost him the election. When the scandal laden Olympics was embarrassing our nation, Romney stepped in and turned it into a showcase-Yet Romney is a MORMON, and surely a MORMON cannot be President.
Romney won the governorship of Massachusetts as a REPUBLICAN, yes, in a state that gives us Sen. Kennedy. He showed the ability to work with all people, of all political backgrounds - yet Romney is a MORMON and surely a MORMON cannot be President.
Romney saved a state government facing fiscal disaster, bringing economic expansion and staving off unemployment, something this nation could use - Yet Romney is a MORMON, and surely a MORMON cannot be President.
Unlike many politicians, Romney has remained faithful to his wedding vows, keeping his commitments to his wife and blessing his children - Yet Romney is a MORMON, and surely a MORMON cannot be President.
The twelfth article of Romney's faith, one which he no doubt memorized as a child, affirms that it is his duty to honor, obey, and sustain the law- Yet Romney is a MORMON, and surely a MORMON cannot be President.
Romney's faith group is recognized and respected by governments throughout the world, it was so respected that it was miraculously allowed to build a temple in communist East Germany before the wall came down-Yet Romney is a MORMON, and surely a MORMON cannot be President.
Romney's church teaches that the constitution is a divinely inspired document and that this nation was established by the God of Heaven. Such respect for our nation and its founding document can make just another politician into a statesman-Yet Romney is a MORMON, and surely a MORMON cannot be President.
Romney's religious organization teaches love and compassion for all human beings and provides millions of dollars in aid to many countries. It also sent thousands of volunteers to aid Katrina victims in our own country. That aid is given freely, without regard to the religious preference of the recipients-Yet Romney is a MORMON, and surely a MORMON cannot be President.

Wait a minute. What is it about being Mormon that disqualifies Mitt Romney from being an effective president? It is true that there may be theological differences that exist between Romney and others, but he is not running for Bishop, Rabbi, Pope, Minister, Imam, or Pastor...
He is running for President.

Check it out

At there is Dr. Phils personality test, It said I'm a 34 and the below
Your total score is 34. Interpretation of Results
Others see you as sensible, cautious, careful & practical. They see you as clever, gifted, or talented, but modest. Not a person who makes friends too quickly or easily, but someone who's extremely loyal to friends you do make and who expect the same loyalty in return. Those who really get to know you realize it takes a lot to shake your trust in your friends, but equally that it takes you a long time to get over it if that trust is ever broken.
Take the test and comment on what it said, or email me!!

This is after he fed Brody a bunch of Chocolate, so innocent

Brody and his "new" shoes

Brody found some of Colby's old shoes and brought them to me to put them on. He loves them, they are a bit big, but they light up and he loves stomping around in them.

Child Services

So if Child Services come knocking on my door I shouldn't be surpised. Anyone who has been around Colby for a couple of years knows he is accident prone, especially around concrete and his forehead. The problem is these accidents only happen a couple times of the year. When is that you might ask? That would be picture time! So if you notice the boys on take 1 of together pictures Colby's forehead is all scratched up. Brody's eye was slightly swollen (not a lot) do to him running in a chair. Yes I had the thought of pictures in my head so yes they got hurt. So you might think I'm crazy, but I can pull up Colbys one year etc.. and you'll notice he wears a beanie on his head a lot. That is to hide the newest addition to his forehead. So this past month is again a picture month. Not for Colby though, for Brody. I wasn't worried after all why would he follow in his brothers footsteps. His 3 month, 6 month pictures went without a problem and the 9 month wasn't a huge sore. We go in to get pictures taken, they have a two 1/2 hour wait time, we set the appointment. While waiting, friends of ours called and asked if we wanted to do dinner. We decided we had time and went to their house to pick them up. I had to pull some stuff off the computer for work real quick so I left Brody to Allens care while I did that (Yes I am putting all blame on Allen) Well Brody not only proved to me that I am abusing my kids by even having the thought of pictures in my head, but he showed me he could one up Colby (or so we thought) While Allen was looking at pictures of a Jeep, Brody wandered over to our friends stairs and literally walked straight off of them. I came and saw him doing somersaults the last 1/2 of the stairs. He only cried for a little bit and just seemed scared so I did start checking his face for any obvious marks. Here is one of the pictures we took (Yes we still went, I wanted to get a picture of his fangs before the middle teeth grew in) He didn't cooperate for a fangs pictures, but oh well, I at least got him in for his one years.

So we kept him turned so you couldn't see the side of his face that was banged up, it worked okay! So Colby was jealous that Brody got his pictures taken, so I told him we would run to Walmart and let him have some taken. I even asked him what he wanted to wear. But that was at least 3 days BEFORE what happened next.

This is 4 days after it happened, so thank goodness it has cleared up quite a bit, but he scraped from the top of the forehead clear down to a fat lip. So what do I do? Quit taking or even thinking about taking my kids to get pictures?


Colby had a homework assignment from school where he needed to bring a worm to school (any kind) We'll the night before he didn't find one, so this is how our morning went.

Yes that is Allen digging in our yard trying to find a worm, so where is Colby??

Yes that is Colby still eating his breakfast

Allen still is digging.... So finally when it was time to go Allen came in with no worm. Thank goodness mom had a backup plan and bought gummy worms just in case. Initially the whole problem with this scenario is we are already doing our kids homework and he's barely 4. But after Allen came back in it dawned on me that, "could he really see a worm in the dirt with his color blindness?" When I asked him he said he was looking for movement. Ha, I laughed at him and said it probably wasn't the brightess idea of mine to send my color blind husband to find a worm!

Being Fired

When Allen and I first got married if Allen didn't agree with how I did stuff (aka iron etc..) he would say I was fired. I kept telling him that under my definition of being fired that 'ment I didn't have to do it anymore. He quickly learned it wasn't a good idea to complain! Well to my surprise the other day I was driving home when Colby belted out, "Mom your fired" Me and Allen started to laugh very hard (which of course is what he wanted) I never realized what I was being fired for, but I did realize that maybe Allen didn't quit saying that phrase after all, I just became use to it. Now of course we gave Colby the reaction he wanted so I'm sure I'll be fired all the time.

Past Favorites of Colby

Awww, 3 days old

Colby went to vist Grandma Joe at work to show off his Batman costume. He was so excited to find out that not only was her department decorated as the "bat cave" but also Grandma was Catwoman

Look at our big 3 year old

A 4 year olds perspective of my life. . .

Colby was driving home with mommy after playing "house" with his cousin Caitlin, below is the conversation we had.
"Your not my mom" Said Colby
"I'm Not?" I asked, "Who is?"
"No one" Colby replied
"Oh really? Then who is going to tuck you in at night?" I asked
"No one" Colby said
"Okay, then who is going to give you hugs and kisses?" I tried
"No one'
After going on and on like this I thought I would get him, "okay then who is going to give you chocolate milk?"
Well he got me, "I will get my own" he replied.
"Okay I give up then, Who am I then??"
"Your Heather"
"Okay and what do I do then?" I asked
"You clean the kitchen" He replied so causally.

Past Favorites of Brody

Colby thought Brody looked bored after his nap so he filled his crib with all his toys:)

How cute are those little hospital gowns for our babies
