Mrs Fisher, Xavier's teacher shared this with me today...

A girl in his class had a little accident the other day and wet her pants. Today the same girl was laughing about how she peed on the floor. Xavier says to her, "If I were you I wouldn't laugh, I would be embarrassed."

I need rain...

Sometimes I wish that Kansas got more rain than it then I could have really cute rainboots. The problem is, I would want these three and more.

Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I did not spend over 2 hours on the phone with my sister talking about such important things like All My Children and whatever else that was going on in our lives. Which means I did not put off the work that I needed to do that day to have such an important conversation.

I did not get a little emotional when they killed Greenlee on All My Children. First of all it is a soap opera and not reality and I never get them confused and cry during All My Children, NEVER! Second, I didn’t even like Greenlee and was glad she was leaving the show. So why would I be sad that she died? The thing is, I used to like Greenlee, a lot, and they started showing flashbacks from when I used to like her, so that made me sad that not only was she dead but that they ruined a good character.
But hey, no body has been found yet so there is still hope that in 5 years she can come back with amnesia and for whatever reason was drawn to little Pine Valley, PA.

I did not have a terrible headache that started Wednesday afternoon and still had most of the day on Thursday. It did not cause such a pain behind my left eye that I didn’t contemplate digging my eyeball out and poking my brain with a stick…you know because that would have made the pain go away.
I did not have to reschedule my dentist appointment on Thursday because Aiden was projectile vomiting. He did not throw up during my Institute class, causing milk to be shot out of him and all over him, me, the table, my scriptures, and the floor. He did not do it two more times after that causing Bro Knapp to stop class and help me along with another girl in the class to clean up his vomit. (Although I am so grateful I did not have the time to feed him breakfast, normally he eats eggs in the morning and that would have been really gross.)

Adam after looking at our phone bill asked, “Who do you call in Leavenworth?” He, not remembering that my good friend Tricia lives in Leavenworth. I did not reply back to him, in front of our boys, “My prison boyfriend.” And our little Xavier then did not ask, “Why, was he bad? Why is your boyfriend in prison?” So innocent…

I did not take 2 hour naps on Thursday, Friday and Saturday (I only got a 30 minute nap on Wednesday). I am a very busy person with a whole list of things to do this month (that is actually very true) and would not throw away all this time in which I could have been working, drawing, cooking, and what not. I do justify my 2 hour naps on the horrendous headache I had off and on all week. The only way for me to cure a headache is with a good nap and all…since I try to stay away from meds and all.

Nice day again...

We spent sometime outside on Thursday since it was in the 60s and all. I always try to get pictures of the boys on these days but they never corporate very well. But I liked these so here you go...

8 Seconds

We took the boys to the K-State Rodeo this afternoon. It was a lot of fun. Xavier was so excited to see the bulls. It might be a new little tradition for us (especially if we get free tickets again).

Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I did not totally lose my religion when my laptop started acting up, running slower than a turtle and causing me to erase everything off of it and restoring it back to factory settings. I never warned my children “Don’t pay attention to the words coming out of momma’s mouth.” Because I would never talk in such a way and especially would never do it in front of my boys. Nor was I tempted to throw the laptop out the window or run over it with my car or stomp on it with all my might and I definitely did not dream of doing all three. I have way more patience than that.

During a conversation at Enrichment in which we discussed such highly intellectual and spiritual things such as mammograms and pap smears, did I NOT admit to preferring the gynecologist over the dentist. And I definitely DID NOT say, “My teeth are in bad shape but my uterus is fine.” And I definitely did not say that in the presence of such people like the Relief Society President or the Stake President’s wife. That would be tacky to discuss such personal issues in public.
And the Relief Society President did not bust into laughter as we left the church that night passing by Bro Wangsgaard, my dentist, in the hallway.

I did not get a speeding ticket on Friday. I always fall the rules of the land and I never speed through small towns. I’m totally aware that that would be dangerous and small town cops have nothing better to do than to pull little ole me over. After receiving said ticket I never wondered if I would not have a huge fine to pay if a.) I cried b.) wore a low cut shirt or c.)all the above
I also did not blame the cop for pulling me over, I would never put the responsibility on someone else.

I was not slightly jealous that Adam was under the weather yesterday and got to spend the whole day in bed. I would never wish to be sick just so I could spend the whole day in bed nor would I feel jealous towards my husband for being sick, I would be totally sympathetic and caring and take care of my poor sick husband.
UPDATE: We now think Adam has strep throat. So NOT jealous of him, he can totally keep it to himself. Since I've had it TWICE this year, no need to try it again. No thanks. Sorry Babe!

Valentine's Day

Since Adam and I don't really celebrate Valentine's day we just spend the day at home with the boys. So I cooked this for dinner...

Since we never have meat, Damon and Xavier were super excited to have steak...that's kinda sad isn't it? They decided they want this meal every Valentine's day.

The rice was really good, honestly we'll probably have that again as a main course...we are so weird!

Next was presents. I used to give the boys Valentine's shirts every year (like my mom did) but they are in need of nothing so it seemed wasteful to do it. So we got Damon and Xavier these little toys that are called Gormiti. I don't really know what they are but they like them. Aiden got these little Mickey Mouse and Tigger toys that are like balls.

Then we had rice krispee treats shaped like hearts. I also wrote their initials on them in icing. I love rice krispees. Probably why the whole pan is gone now...hmm...anyway...

I love Kansas

Where else does it snow in the morning and then be 50+ degrees and sunny by the afternoon. You gotta love it!

This morning...the biggest snowflakes I have ever seen.
This was so nice Aiden and I walked to get the boys from school.

And on a side note, Aiden has learned how to clap.

And just because I love this picture and this program...

Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

The following are things I would never do because I'm the perfect mother and wife! And remember no judgments...because like I said...I would never do these things.

I would never watch Aiden eat food off the floor along with JoJo, the dog we were dogsitting. I’m too much of a germaphobe to let my baby eat food off the floor with a dog. That is disgusting!

And I would never laugh at Xavier who was crying over a horse dying in a BatMan cartoon. It is not funny when small children cry over such things. I'm a good mother and I would just hug and comfort the poor guy without any laughter. (Although seriously, who has an animal die in a cartoon?)

I was not totally devastated on Thursday when I learned that Damon and Xavier had only ½ day of school on Friday…nope because I love having all my boys at home all afternoon.

On Friday, I did not avoid a phone call from a sister in our ward because I was scared she might ask me to do something I didn't want to do. I didn't have the thought, "What if she wants me to sub in Primary or something." I would never just not pick up the phone and wait to see if she leaves a voicemail so I could call her back at my own discretion. Never would I do this because not only am I a good mother and wife, I'm also a good little mormon!

And of course I called her back right away, I would never just not return someone's call.

Soooo Close...

...but not quite!

You may not know...

Before I was pregnant with Aiden, I wanted a dog. I really REALLY wanted a dog. I even had one picked out but someone got to her before me.
Anywhos, then I found out I was pregnant with Aiden. And a puppy while being feeling sick all the time just didn't sound like a good idea...not to mention needing more room in our little house. Also thinking of taking care of a puppy and a newborn at the same time seemed like too much.
Well it turns out we got an Aiden and a puppy in one...

Aiden often carries things in his mouth and crawls around. It is really cute. I especially love it when he does it with a bottle but I never have a camera around when he does it.

Xavier's Concert

Xavier had his first school concert today. He was so cute! He did a good job of singing and didn't look nervous at all (They sang infront of the school this afternoon and he admitted to being nervous before.)
Here's some clips from the concert. He kept messing with his shirt during and I'm not for sure why. Sorry for the shakey camera, Damon was on my lap + I had to hold the camera up to get the "shot".

After the concert, Xavier wanted to show Grandma and Grandpa Little his classroom and library. He was really excited about it. He is such a cute boy!
