Happy Leap Day!

Last week, Mommy and Daddy were kind of naughty and took Derrick and me out past our bedtimes to go grocery shopping (don't worry, it was only 830). When we got back to our truck, I looked up in the sky and saw something I don't remember seeing before. I pointed to it and called it "Baby Sun". Mommy thought that was cute and I heard her telling Daddy that she didn't want to tell me it was called a "Moon" because that was cute what I said.

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday, Daddy! He turned 32 yesterday. We made a cake for him, and picked out sprinkles for on top. I took the clear wrapping off the top of the sprinkle bowl and dumped the sprinkles into one nice pile in the middle of the cake. I knew Mommy told me Eve could do it too, so I saved her a few sprinkles, and she dumped them in the corner of the cake :o) He he he. We aren't very good at decorating! Then Daddy said we could help him blow out his candles, so Daddy said on the count of three, but when he said "one" Eve and I blew them all out :o) We aren't very patient you know!

We had so much sugar yesterday, that Eve went to bed at midnight, and I didn't go to bed until 130 in the morning!

Nate called yesterday to see if I had made Ryan a cake yet, we were supposed to touch base on Thursday, but I had forgotten. So turns out Nate also made him a Texas sheet cake! Then Nate said that Josh also made him one! So Ryan had 3 cakes yesterday :o)

Ryan and I are moving the house around tomorrow. Ok, obviously not the house itself, just the interior :o) We decided that we are going to expand our salt water fish and start "breeding" the corals. We started doing this last year, but Derrick decided the fish needed a drink...of milk, and killed all the fish in the tank plus some of the corals didn't grow as well. So, now that he knows fish don't drink milk, we're ready to move on :o) We have a small 20 gallon tank we want to set up in our living room, so we're moving things around a bit. Which is fine with me! I love change. I love moving rooms around. And I'm looking forward to having a salt water tank back in our living room again, it's been almost 2 years since I've had one and I miss it. It's so peaceful to look at.

Happy Birthday, Ryan! I love you very much, I hope you had a wonderful day!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I told the kids today that it was Valentine's Day, and asked them, "What do we do on Valentine's Day?" Evie's response was, "G's House!" Derrick's response was, "Gran's House!" I'm like, um I didn't ask WHERE we were going. So I told them we were red on Valentine's Day, so Derrick picked out his red shirt and wanted red pants to match (we settled for a pair of jeans with red stitching) and Evie picked out a pink butterfly shirt. She also LOVES pink gloss for her lips and has been running around all day putting in on her lips, or around that area ;o) They are also asking where there treats are - they've caught on already to if today has a name to it (Christmas, Easter, Valentine's Day) that equals presents for them. Luckily Gran sent gifts :o) So Ryan and I don't have to buy any. However, they are asking for candy now. Little stinkers.

I'm trying to pick up a shift tonight - as it is a HUGE money-maker night, but so far no luck. I have one more coworker to ask today, then I might have tonight off. Which isn't horrible, but I'd rather have $200 :o) If I don't get a shift tonight, I'll try to pick some up this weekend, as I think this weekend will still be very busy since V-Day falls so close to it.

Happy Valentine's Day!

ps - Jackie, I had a dream about you last night. Very weird. I love how weird dreams get. I'll have to tell you about it sometime!

Pics - Finally!

So, we measure the kids once a month up on our wall - they get a kick out of it! On the 3rd, Derrick was 45 1/4 inches. We measured him yesterday - he's 46 inches! My not-yet-4-year-old is almost 4 feet tall! Geez kid! That poor boy grew almost a whole inch in one week! His pants he got for Christmas don't fit any more, that was our cue to see if he grew :o) Evie also grew, just enough for her belly to hang out of her shirt like Derrick's now does!

Doc Appt

I had my 2-year-old checkup today. I'm now 34 1/2 inches and 30 pounds. I'm getting to be a tall, skinny girl! Mommy kind of misses my chubbies, but I'm so busy running around I burn all the stuff I eat! I didn't get any shots, but I had some blood drawn. So I got a glitter bandaid and a Scooby Doo sticker. They tried to give me an Elmo sticker, but once I saw Scooby, I made sure they knew I wanted that one! I was a very good girl at the appt, and I made sure to make the ladies giggle. I had to show them how I could jump and jump and jump. Then I jumped off the step stools.

OH! I almost forgot to tell you! G and Papa came for a visit on Saturday for my birthday! I got brand new Dora sheets! I'm a good girl falling asleep now. I like my Dora sheets. And my Dora dolly from Gran. And my Princess hair clips, comb and makeup from Auntie Marcie and GG. I also got some baby ponies from G and Papa. G and Papa also gave me a Dora and Diego puzzle, but Derrick keeps playing with it. I have some new clothes too! My favorite is the Dora shirt of course. I like Dora. Dora, Dora, Dora the Explorer! (I think Mommy is getting annoyed with Dora now he he he)

Well, I'm off to bed. Mommy says "Hi!" to all of you checking in on us. She's been super busy starting work again, but she says she's having fun making lots of $ so we can buy a house with a yard for Derrick and me! I don't think Mommy wanted to work quite this much, like on Friday, she worked in the morning from 11 until 230. Then she went and bought us a pizza for dinner, bcuz she went back to work that night at 4. She thought she'd be done about 8-830 since she was the first one to go home, but she didn't come home until 1130! I was long sleeping by then. After G and Papa left on Saturday, Mommy went back into work a little after 4, and didn't get home until midnight! Mommy didn't plan on that. So she may not be working many nights. She wants to see us sometimes :o) We want to see her too.
