Funny Story

Yesterday I was very surprised to receive a note from Trent's teacher. She had written in his agenda "Please talk to Trent about his inappropriate behavior, his silly button was in high." When I read it I kinda laughed. But only because Trent has this way of out of nowhere coming up with sayings and doing things to get an audience. Dont get me wrong he is shy but if he does something and you laugh he just won't stop. He so reminds me of......

Zack Morris. Witty- Ladies Man.

Last week Trent came home and asked me who Jim Carrey was. He said that his teacher said that he reminded her of him. Crazy. Isn't it?

He is also begging for chores to do. He wants a Wii so bad. Everything is "I will do this for a dollar." I did offer him $5 to clean Taz's room. That was the best $5 I have spent in a long time.

Taz had picture day today. I did manage to get her in the cutest outfit. Although no bow. I pick and choose my battles.

25 More DAYS

We have exactly 25 more days until DISNEY. I can not wait to share this experience with my children, all 3 of them! We will be there for 7 days, 6 nights. We got an incredible deal that includes most of our food too. They will be celebrating Halloween while we are there, so we will be Trick-or-Treating in the Magic Kingdom. There is a total of 27 of us going. I am so excited that Alyssa will have 2 other little girls to play with.

We are staying at the POP Resort which is really, really cool. This is the only vacation that we have taken this year so we are going all out. Space Mountain here we come.

"An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow."~Author Unknown

It was December 24th , 1994.
We went to his grandparents house to celebrate Christmas Eve. His entire family was there. I thought it was kind of strange that his family had cooked a huge meal but he said that he made reservations at Steak-n- Ale one of our favorite restaurants. Looking back everyone knew.

I had had a hard day at work . . working at Media Play and I was tired and hungry. By the time we reached the restaurant I figured something was up because Brett was acting alittle nervous (which isn't hard to spot) We ordered and by the time we had finished our meal it was close to 11pm. The waitresses were literally vacuuming around us. Looking back Brett had been waiting for the perfect time to take his great leap. They all but pushed us out of the restaurant. It being Christmas Eve who could blame them. So he actually purposed in the "BEAST". For those of you who don't know the "BEAST" it was his gold CAMARO. It was freezing that night. Shocked and confused, I looked at Brett - who was now getting down on one knee as he took the ring from his pocket and asked me to marry him. I couldn't hold back the excitement as I grabbed Brett and told him YES! It was definitely a night to remember - the night we got engaged!

Eighteen months later we got married on August 17, 1996.
HAPPY 12th Anniversary, Brett.

First Day of School!

Posted by Picasa

Last week I took the kids downtown to spend the day. We played at the children's museum, Centennial Park and ate at the CNN center. We had a blast.

Here they are sitting in the "barn" on top of a huge cow.

Of course, Alyssa loved the circus part of the museum. To climb, bounce, jump and play. She felt free I guess.

You know this is Alyssa for sure. She can't go anywhere with a crack shot!

During the day they put on a Circus Show. Alyssa got picked to be in it. She was an Elephant. She was so cute.

Here is a great shot of her painting.

Trent made a friend while we were there. I couldn't get any great shots of him. He wouldn't let me.
