Crazy Funny Kids

Konnor (our little computer genius) found the Melissa & Doug website today. He was looking through the puzzles telling me which ones he wanted. Then, he saw THE puzzle that he just has to have. He told me he wanted to go to the store "right now". I explained to him that certain Melissa & Doug products you could probably only buy off the internet and that we needed to wait until we had the money in our account to buy it. Of course he said "I want money!!" to which I replied "Me too!" Then the bright ideas started flowing. "Mom! there is money in Kenzie's room!! Come on I'll show you!" (OK here I just laughed because he was really excited to rob his sister's piggy bank but never mentioned his own) I of course told him we couldn't take Mckenzie's money to buy him a puzzle. Then the best idea yet! He had seen me helping my sister look for jobs online yesterday, SO he sat down at the computer and pulled up the search we had used yesterday. "Mom! Utahjobs.com has money look!!" (pointing to the website advertising $27.00 hr jobs) OK seriously, is this normal? I almost peed my pants!

Wearing Tags and Eating Cookies

Last night I told Konnor and Mckenzie that since the missionaries were coming for dinner tonight that we would wake up in the morning and bake some cookies. This actually worked to my benefit because they wanted to go to bed right away. Today ALL day long the kids were so excited for the missionaries to come. Konnor even made the declaration "Konnor is a missionary!!" (I am pretty sure this was because he thought that would mean he could eat the cookies before the elders arrived) After they left tonight Konnor told us how much he wanted to be a missionary because they get to wear tags and eat cookies. We told him that when he is 19 he can be a missionary. To which he responded "I am 19! I want to be 19!" Holy funny kid! I only hope that he has that same desire in 15 years!

This Sucks

Why did my husband tell me a horrible murder story he saw on tv right before he walked out the door to go to work? Now, I am exhausted from not sleeping this week and I am too scared to sleep... Do I overdo it on caffeine and try to stay up to make myself feel better? OR do I go get in bed (with my kids) and toss and turn until I drift into a not so peaceful (and guaranteed to be nightmare filled) slumber? I'm thinking I need another Diet Pepsi. Anyone for a late, late night Twilight party?

This was just a few minutes ago, when my kids realized I was baking chocolate chip cookies...
I have to admit, I have been baking more than necessary lately. The reason?
My kids LOVE it!

This picture was taken just a little while before the "muffin incident". For any of you I haven't told about this here is a brief recap. On this day I had made some blueberry muffins with fresh, beautiful blueberries and yummy homemade streusel on top. They smelled AMAZING!! The kids posted up in front of the oven the entire 20 minutes. After I took them out I put them on a plate to cool. I put the plate as far back as it would go on the counter and explained that they were VERY HOT. For some reason, in my mind, this was enough to prevent premature muffin eating. We all walked into another room and I decided to sit down for a second to check my email. I sat down at the computer, right beside the kitchen door way, for MAYBE 5 minutes. When I got up and walked into the kitchen, to my surprise, there were muffins missing! I walked into the front room where konnor was sitting and eating a muffin. I asked "Konnor, what did you do?" He looked at me and very seriously said to me, "Well, I blew it off!" Yes, I laughed. Yes, in front of them both. But the muffins really were that good...

What Can Happen in Five Minutes?

Well, here are a few examples. First I walked out of the front room for maybe five minutes to pull out the stuff I needed to make dinner and i came back in to this.

We had beeen outside swimming all day and I guess she was pretty worn out!! Hilarious. AND a few days ago I had walked out of the front room to come back in to this.

Konnor is a pretty big kid and so this is hilarious to say the least. We have been keeping my neice lately and her walker was in the room. I guess it's a nice lounge chair...
