Halloween 2008

So I wanted to show you some pics of the kids in the Halloween costumes.

This is Jared he was going to be a spider but decided to be a Ninja

This is Haley she is Hanah Montana

This is Natalie she is Abby Cadabby from Sesame Street

Here are some additional pics of Haleys School Halloween party. Natalie and Jared had a blast running rapid all over the gym floor and dancing to the music. Haley of course with her friends shes getting so much older where does the time go. Well hope you enjoy.

Guilty Parenting

So raise your hands if you do guilty parenting. You know what that is, you feel like you have done some so terrible that your child needs a new toy; well that child was our Natalie. As everyone may know she is in love or I guess the better term is "possessed" with Dora the Explorer and Diego. I am not just talking about just like to watch it but when she sees it on TV her eyes are glued and no matter what you say or do her focus is still on the TV. Well my darling husband decided to buy her a Dora Dollhouse and I have to admit this thing is really cute and she was probably going to get it for christmas anyway, so if your wanting a good present idea well this is a fantastick house I think.

Fun Day in the backyard

Here are some pics I took earlier this month just thought everyone would like to see them.

I think its just a boy thing

So I was reading a post on my sister-laws blog and it so reminded me of Jared and his boy parts. I am really thinking of not giving Jared and Natalie a bath anymore just because I am dealing with the same sort of thing. Just the other night I was putting clothes away and I can hear Jared in the bathroom say "Natawie look at my penis" I thought to myself no I did not just hear that so of course I go in the bathroom and say "no Jared we do not say that to our sister." This is not the first time that something lik this has happended, he also thinks its funny to pinch his sisters butt.

What really is hard to explain is to Natalie who is only 2 why she should not be taking her underwear and pants off and streaking around the house ; of course she has hers off Jared thinks its ok that he does the same and than they both are running around saying "Look at my butt" and of course here I am chasing to little ones around to get there underwear back on. I dont want anyone to get the wrong idea I guess my kids like to be free.

It must be a boy thing (Rachel) because often if I am trying to help Jared get his pajamas on or help him to get dressed he will sometimes spit out "mom you want to see my pee" (his pee is in reference to his you know what )

Oh boy I think all moms with boys could use a little advice.

To many questions by a 9 year old

Ok So I know shes getting up there, shes going to start asking "those" questions that I have been trying to figure out how I was going to answer; and yup they have started. Tonight while we were eating dinner haley goes to me "Mom Im wearing a bra" and I say "Yes Haley I know you are I brought your clothes downstairs last night." Then she says to me "my friend has boobs" and I say "How do you know that Haley?" "Because you can see them mom", (I pause a minunte to think about this) and than Isay back to her"Well Haley everyone gets boobs sometime in there life; you will be getting them someday when your a teenager", she responds "I will?", I say "Yes" and of course she says "Oh Cool".

Well if that conversation was not enough she than proceeds to ask me "When will I put that thing you wrap around your undewear", I say "What thing" (as if Im that confused, which Im not, I know what shes getting at) and she says "The thing you put in your underwear when you bleed?", I say "Well thats when you get your period and you will get one of those when you get older to" and she says "oh than you babies huh?" , I of course say "No Haley, you dont have babies until you find someone you love and than you can have babies"

She had asked something else by this point, dont quite remember what it was but it had to do with sex and I told her that sex is something shared by two people who love each other, between a Man and a Woman. Her response to this was really confused and than she stopped asking me questions. I know more questions will be comming the older she gets, but cant it wait for a couple more years. Thats my Haley for you curious as ever.

Well good night to all.

Halloween Ideas Part 2


Black acrylic paint
Ornamental (miniature) pumpkins
Black and white craft foam
Hole punch
Glue dots
Black duct tape
Wooden skewers
Time needed: About 1 to 2 Hours
1. Cover your work surface with a drop cloth or newspaper, then paint the pumpkins. Allow them to dry completely.
2. For each bat, snip two identical eyes from the white craft foam and use the hole punch to make pupils. Adhere the eyes to the pumpkin with glue dots.
3. Cut matching pairs of ears and wings from the black craft foam (our wings are about 6 inches long). Attach the ears by taping a toothpick to the back of each one, leaving about 1K inches of the toothpick exposed, then inserting it into the top of the pumpkin.
4. Finally, tape a skewer to the back of each wing, leaving a 2-inch point exposed, and push it in place.

My sister-law took Haley overnight lastnight and they went to a go-cart park in Fond du Lac and everyone said they had alot of fun. They got to play mini-golf and ride go-carts. I wanted to post some pics of Haley and Shannons kids for all to see..

This one is of Sammantha and Haley

This next one is Dawson, Kiersten, and Haley

And this is all four what looks like breakfast or dinner

And one of Dawson and Haley

Take care. Stacie

Ladybugs are our friends

So my son happended to see a ladybug in the window and thought he would talk to it. If you look real close to the small dot on the window; thats the ladybug. HE kept saying "come on ladybug you can do it" It was very cute. Boys and bugs I guess I will never understnd it but he loves to talk to them, stomp on them, and pick them up.

Quarter of my life is gone...

So for my 25TH birthday(Sept. 24) my husband thought it would be nice to have a little celebration after I was done with work and bless his heart he had the house decorated and a small oreo cake with candles. The candles mind you looked like sparklers that were going to go off, but none the less it was still very sweet of him to think of me and here are some pics of me and the kids trying to blow these darn candles out..

Heres what the cake looked like before I tried to blow anything out...

And here is what my darling husband did w/pink and white streamers.

Political Joke

So thanks to my mom I have something funny to share.... from an email she sent me... (Hope you enjoy)

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, 'What is
Politics?' Dad says, 'Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I am the head of the family, so call me The President Your mother is the administrator of the money, so we call her the Government.

We are here to take care of your needs, so we will call you the People. The nanny, we will consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we will call him the Future. Now think about that and see if it makes sense.' So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said. Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parents' room and finds his mother asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed.

The next morning, the little boy say's to his father, 'Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now.' The father says, 'Good, son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about! The little boy replies, 'The President is screwing the Working Class while the Government is sound asleep. The People are being ignored and the Future is in deep shit!
