Magic Hair Gel

There must be some magic powers in Chris's hair gel. Cali has fallen asleep like this many times. I think it is so funny.

My sweet baby is 9 months

Cali turned 9 months old yesterday and I missed it. Oh well, one day late isn't too bad for the third kid right? My mom had given Cali this beautiful dress for Christmas and she is finally big enough to wear it.

I took about 20 pictures but these are the only ones that looked half way cute. I was getting frustrated that she would not stay on the blanket. (Yes Chrissey this is your blanket that I have not given back, so sorry I need to get my own!) Chris said this is really not a good time of day to take pictures. Apparently 6:00 in the evening on a day when your baby did not take more than a 30 minute nap is not ideal for pictures.

Frugal or Freak?

Am I being frugal or just a freak because I am forcing my child to use this?

I am kidding of course. The humor of my 9 year old boy is starting to rub off on me. He brought this home from school the other day and was so excited to show me (in his words) "the worlds smallest pencil." I thought it was really funny.

New Family Pics

We took these over a month ago and I am just now scanning them in.

Whose kid in this?

Caden may look a little like me, but we are so different. First of all she is really sweet and passive with most people outside her family. I am no monster, but not sweet like her and passive will NEVER be used to describe me. She doesn't care for chocolate or for very many desserts. That still seems so weird to me, but I am getting used to it.

However her latest interest has got me floored. Almost every time Chris does yard work he finds some reptile - frog, lizard, or snake. I welcome them all EXCEPT for snakes. I like watching them on TV and seeing them at the ZOO, but having one inches or even feet away from me FREAKS ME OUT!!!!

The other day Chris brings one in the house and shows me and then wants to show Caden. I didn't want him to scare her, but the next thing I know I hear this - "Can I touch it? Can I hold it? "

This is her saying "awe he is so cute."

I know it looks like a clump of hair is across her forehead, but no, that is a SNAKE on my little girls head. (You might have to click on the picture below to see the snake because it is almost the same color as her hair.) Oh and just ignore Chris's sweaty and dirty hands and arms in the picture.

I know it is a baby snake that it is not poisonous and it wont hurt her one bit, but it still freaks me out.

Michael Phelps and Carrie Underwood Dating???

Are you kidding me??

I didn't believe it when I first heard it either by my 9 year old this morning. He said he heard it on the radio. Now why is my 9 year old more current on celebrity gossip than I am? I guess it is because I have had a house full of family all weekend and just now got a chance to really get on the Internet. Anyway, I told him that I doubt they are dating. He said either they are dating or thinking about dating. I didn't think that made any sense, but sure enough this is what I just read online.

"the twentysomethings are frequently texting each other and have already begun planning a “quiet first date” near Carrie’s home in Nashville, Tennessee."

And of course we all know that EVERYTHING you read on the Internet is 100% FACT.

I guess all the gold medals have blurred her vision. How can she go from Tony Romo to Michael Phelps. Don't get me wrong I was one of the millions screaming on my couch during and after every race he was in, but come on.
