Wow! Gas is at $ 2.09

I stopped today to get some gas. And imagine my surprise it was down another .10 cents from earlier this week. It only took $40.00 to fill up YEAH!! My big question is if it can be $2.09 now why could it not of been that a few months ago.

Especially for all of us gas guzzling SUV drivers.

Going To See Vampires

I am going to see Twilight tomorrow with my cousin Chris. I am VERY EXCITED!!! I first heard of it when my sister's friend Karen talked about it on her blog. So I read the first book. Thank you Karen!! Chris was kind enough to let me borrow all the other books. They were great too! I know after tomorrow I will be mad because I will have to wait forever to see the other movies.
I can't wait til tomorrow afternoon!


Happy Birthday to the big guy! My hubby turned 35 today. He's getting to be an old man. I am not posting a pic because I am lucky I got away with the one to the right!

Sydney and her Uncle Aaron

As Sydney was watching cartoons the other day she saw a marathon for Thanksgiving Day. Of course she said I am going to watch that. And I quickly told her no you are not we are going to be at Grandma's. She responded with I thought we were going to see Aunt Jackie and Uncle Aaron? I then found myself explaining Aunt Jackie was going to be at Grandma's. This is what gets said to me an a very anxious way " WHAT ABOUT UNCLE AARON? Is he not going to be there? I want to see Uncle Aaron!" I was not trying to exclude my brother-in-law by any means. I was just grouping them together. After clearing this up she says "YEAH UNCLE AARON!" She loves her Uncle Aaron, well except when he acted like he was going to throw her in the creek at my mom's but that's another story. Sorry Aunt Jackie she still loves you.

Poor Aaron he has it coming over Thanksgiving.

School Picture 2008

When I arrived home I noticed Sydney school pictures had arrived. I was afraid to open it because as you can imagine you never know how these things will turn out. Luckily it turned out fine. She just looks so much older!

Since we told Sydney today now I can make the grand announcement. We are expecting!! Not it is not the four-footed kind as many of you would think. Our second child is due the beginning of June.

We weren't sure how she would take the news. As there will be quite an age difference between them. It was pretty anti-climatic. At first I think she thought that we were joking with her. She kept looking at my stomach. Her first comment was "GREAT" (said very sarcastically) Steve told her she would be a babysitter she said no to that and she was not gonna change diapers. Then she said she wanted a sister. As we quickly tried to explain that was not up to us. Better than her telling us a few weeks back she wanted an older brother.

Several hours later she asked me "Mom were you serious about the baby stuff" . My reply was yes we wouldn't make something like that up. Then she restated that she was "NOT changing any diapers".

We figure there will be questions about where babies come from at some point.

I think she will make a rockin' big sister (in time anyway)!!

Everyone will be looking at my bottom

As you can see I found some gray pants for Sydney. What I did not realize is that there were words on the back of the pants. When I realized this I let it be up to he whether we kept them or not. She said most definitely " NO!! Mom everyone will be looking at my bottom" . I can only hope that she keeps this attitude as she gets older. Which I am sure will not happen (big sigh)!

Hello All!

I have been saying for awhile that I was going to start a blog. Well here I finally am. You can except everything from soup to nuts. Especially crazy things that Sydney comes up with. You will find that she takes after my sister quite a bit. That's the excuse she uses anyways.

I hope to come up with interesting things for you, but if not I apologize in advance!!
