TOO HOT for clothes

It's been reall hot here the last few days in the 100's. Taylor and Olivia wanted to play outside and since it was so hot Olivia decided to strip down. I'm ready for it to cool down.


So I read all 4 books in about 9 days. (I went slower on book 4) I loved these books. I am now a fan and definitely promote Twilight!!! I'm glad I am done however because nothing was getting done around my house.

Fantasy Football has begun. . . and my life is over!!!

So my husband LOVES fantasy football. For those of you who don't know what it is. It is when middle aged men (who can't play the game anymore) creates their own NFL team. If your husband does not know about this DON"T TELL HIM ABOUT IT!!! James is on several leagues and is constantly checking stats and stuff online. For one of his leagues they all came over for the "draft" (picking their teams) and my hubby was in heaven!!! We bought pizza and soda and the guys had a great time. On another one they were all on a conference call picking teams from 8:00 - 11:00. 3 hours!!!! Oh well this is his thing and unlike alot of hubbies who go out all the time or who are selfish, James is not, so I like seeing him get into this and have fun with it. During fantasy football he also talks to his and my brothers which is nice to see!!!

A's baseball game

Nothing like a good old baseball game!!! James and Derick went with Bishop and Justin and Parker and such a fun time. Derick said that Bishop kept talking to these 2 young girls sitting in front of them and it was embarrassing him. I told him in a few years he won't mind so much!

Pretty much sums it up!!!!!

My little Olivia is driving me nuts!!!!! I thought with Taylor being in preschool I could go shopping and run some errands for 3 hours. . . but NOOOO. I will turn my back on her for 2 seconds and she will have wiggled her way out of the cart strap and standing up. So shopping with her is no fun at all.
She is constantly turning on and off the computer (while I'm using it). The other day she found a crayon and wrote all over the wall.

Just look at that face. . . I just want to squeeze those cheeks. She's so cute. . . . a stinker. . but cute.

Taylor's first day of Preschool

My little Tay Tay is in preschool, I can't believe it. She has been looking forward to this day for a very long time. She's watched Derick and Kaitlyn for sometime now leave for school with their backpacks and then coming home and doing their homework and it's just killed her that she couldn't do the same. Well now it is her turn and she had such a great time!!!!

Good things about Taylor being in preschool
She gets to have a backpack
New school clothes and shoes
meets new friends
Loves to learn and play
I get 3 hours to shop with Olivia

Bad things about Taylor being in preschool
I get 3 hours to shop with Olivia
(I went to Target and Kohls to kill time and I couldn't not buy anything!!!)
Yeah I'll need to start a preschool to earn money for when I take Taylor to preschool and shop!

Olivia is all about saying "Cheese"


Do you think they would notice if I left Olivia there to play?

She thought it was nursery time!!!


Here ya go Wendy!!! This is my purse I bought in San Francisco last week. I love the shopping down there. You get amazing deals!!! So if anyone wants to find awesome deals like this maybe you should think about coming down here (Washington friends)!!!!!

Final countdown

Countdown to Youth Conference. This last week is going to be crazy. Just alot of little details and things to sort out before Friday, Saturday and Sunday. To keep sane I put Olivia in the high chair with strawberries. Whenever she would finish I'd cut up some more for her. She might of eaten half a flat. . I'm not really sure!!!

Keeping her occupied helped me sort through 150 medical and registration forms.

I ended up needing to throw her in the tub afterwards so I'm not sure it really saved me a whole lot of time!! Oh well she sure looks and smells cute after her bath!!!

San Francisco

We took my parents to San Francisco the other day before they left and we had so much fun. First we took the BART (train) into San Fran, then took a trolley car to Pier 39 where we ate at Bubba Gump. That was fun for us all since they have amazing food and the name FORREST is plastered everywhere. Since my Dad's name is Forrest it was especially fun for him. Next we walked around all the shops, took pic's of Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and much more. Shopped some more (well me and my mom did while James and my dad stayed outside and watched all the weirdos) I bought a new purse, jewelry, wallet. I'm telling you they have great stuff down there. We then rode the BART home picked up the kids and went home and crashed.

Mom and Dad on BART. It was fun watching my mom watch all the people come on and off. Some are a little strange and my mom was checking them all out!!! I could totally read her mind, and it would of sounded something like this, "What a d_ _ _ weirdo! They sure do dress cookey here!"


Golden Gate bridge

Yummy food and fun!!!
