Yesterday while babysitting, I was asking Kade to name all his uncles. We get to Uncle Austin - and he said, "Austy poo!!!! Austy poo!!"

We called Austin and he didn't answer -

The phone message went like this:

Kade: "Austy poo ::laugh laugh:: Call me back Austin. I love you Austin. Bye."

It was hilarious! :)

At the playground

Today Kade, Addison, Molly and I walked to the playground - it was so nice outside!

On the way, Kade said, "Jackie look! A little tree!"

They waved to everyone and anyone, said hi and bye, and Kade told me they were all his friends.

Then we got on the swings! I LOVE THE SWINGS! And so did the kids.

And just to compare, here they are on February 10, 2007!

Fran and Shelly's bath

Sooooo...Fran and Shelly (the names Eric gave the puppies: Fran = the fat one, Shelly = the skinny one) had their SECOND bath of the day.

The first was because they pooped on each other while in their crate. The second, pictured below, was because one threw up on the other one. So much to clean...

But, got cute pictures!

21 3/4ths

Today I'm 21 and 9 months! :)

So today I started my job, and did only two hours of training but after my gymnastics job. So I worked for seven hours and went home.

I arrive to Eric and Brian in the kitchen, a set table, flowers, and a wonderful dinner.

Isn't that Eric the greatest?

See the flowers on the washer? Aren't they just gorgeous?

Not really sure what cave woman is doing...

The Rickster


The wonderful food

This is how Tucker sits at the table and waits for his food. :)

The search

So Eric and I went to dinner at Sallys. Natalie, Ethan, and Addison were there too. No one else came so we got lots of extra delicious food! It was awesome! So sucks for those of you who didn't come, and was AWESOME for those of us who were there. :)

Eric and I went and looked at houses afterwards. We found three really good ones all by West Jordan. We'll have to see the insides next. We'll update you on the progress.

I love goodwood bbq - except tonight.

We had a great server, but then she forgot some of our food. No big deal - we'll just remind her.

But then, we finish, pack it all up in boxes, forget our boxes, come literally 30 secs later and they've thrown it away - and took the trash out.


We're angry.

On a brighter note - we're watching Tommy boy tonight - I've never seen it - it's pretty funny so far.

Pics from babysitting yesterday

First of all - there was an earthquake in Wells, Nevada today - 6.3 magnitude, then a 4.0 in Milford, Utah (which could have been an aftershock really). No one is hurt, but a school built in 1954 is falling apart. I wonder if there will be some more - they've been talking about earthquakes here forever. I mean, they haven't had one since 1934...and they keep saying we're due. So who knows! Food storage and lots of water baby!

Kade - "Jackie! Take a picture of me!"

Kade - "Jackie! Say cheese!"

Kade - "Jacks, I'm hungry."
Jacks - "What do you want to eat?"
Kade - "A jelly sandwich."
Jacks - "Do you want peanut butter?"
Kade - "No."

Hence the jelly ONLY sandiwich.

Addison started eating it like this...

I turn and look at Kade - and now he's doing this...

Kade - "Jackie, I need a blanket. Jackie, I need a pillow."

Addison soon joined him.

Oh no! Where did they go?!?!?

There they are! :)

Kade - "Jackie, I need more things!" - Led to...this huge fort.

Ta da! Here's Kade!

Addison and Kade

I could tell you about the new puppies I'm giving a foster home for a week, or about Stephanie and the dance she'll be doing tonight at 7:30 - but instead I've decided to list why I love hanging out with Addison and Kade.

1 - They constantly tell me how much they love me. Usually the conversation goes like this:
Kade - Jacks?
Me - yes?
Kade - I love you!
Or he'll just randomly say "I love you Jackie."
Or if it's Addi- "Wuv you Jackie!" or "Wuv you."

2 - Kade plays with my hair while watching Dumbo, and tells me how soft it is, and continues to ask me what my favorite hair style is that he does.

3 - Addison dances to the music on the movie, then turns around and smiles at me.

4 - Kade ignores his movie for a few moments to play peek-a-boo or hide n seek.

5 - Kade takes my camera and points it at things and asks me why they don't say "cheese!!!"

6 - Addison randomly comes up to me and hugs me, then puts her head on my shoulder.

7 - Addison eats Nat's absolutey DELICOUS AND TO DIE FOR cookies, while laying against the blue chair, and sticking her belly out. Then she looks at me with a face of pure enjoyment - the cookies are THAT good.

8 - Addison continues to tell me how cool Shrek is by yelling "Shrek, Shrek!!"

9 - Addison has growling contests with me.

10 - Kade thinks I'm his horse - so him and Addison love to jump on my back and ride around the living room/kitchen.

PS - Nat/Ethan - Rachel, the babysitter, is coming in to town on the 28th to the 4th. She told me to tell you so I'm posting it here so I don't forget. When I told Kade she was coming he said "Yes!" :)

PPS - I got a part time job today - only 20 to 30 hours - being an assistant manager at Rue 21.

Eric made us dinner yesterday - delicious BLTs, and little smoky wraps.

This is the new play toy for the pets...

Yes, there is an Oliver and a Molly under there.

And this picture I've wanted to post, so I'll do it now. Her eyes are sooo blue! Aint she just the cutest?

Monday Morning

So this morning I said, "hey, it's warm outside, let's go plant the bulbs so when spring comes they will bloom."

I thought it was a great idea - until I put my shovel in the ground, and it's completely frozen. :(

Then I found this flag in my yard - they put this up in my yard on any kind of holiday that has to do with America. It's very weird. But I always feel so patriotic.

Our Sunday morning

So I'm going to try and blog at least once a day, so I don't have a bunch of stuff to write about later. So today is our sunday morning - playing with the dogs, and taking a really weird picture of ourselves. We were trying to see how short I am compared to Eric.

Tucker is sitting here waiting to come down and play.

Molly is waiting also - they are very good listeners.

Tucker getting his toy.

Tucker eating snow, and having his face covered in it. :) He LOVES snow.

Big Dog, Little Dog.

Big Boy, Little Girl. Also known as the lumberjack and his little wife.
