Something to Think About...

Say this word out loud... "comfortable".

Did you pronounce it as "comfortable" or "cumfterble"?'

Seriously, who came up with the pronunciation of "cumfterble" because that's usually how I say it. This is a totally random blog, I know, but I was driving to work the other day and saw a billboard with the word and started to think about it. So really, I'm curious, how do you say it? Am I the only idiot out there that says "cumfterble"? :)

Goofy Girl...


This picture was taken on my phone so it's not the greatest quality, but I thought it was hilarious. This is one of those flexible hampers that she found and put over her head this morning. :)

Mini Stroller

So I bought Taya a little baby stroller for Christmas thinking she'd have so much fun pushing around her dollies... turns out I was wrong. If I put the doll in the stroller for her she throws her out and tries to sit in it herself. I thought it was cute, then she started wanting me to push her around in it. Apparently a little mini stroller that she barely fits in is way cooler than a normal size, comfy stroller. I have to hide the stroller now if I don't want a tantrum thrown. She gets mad at me if she sees it and I'm not already pushing her! Turns out this is all Aunt Jami's fault. So thanks Jami for entertaining my child, but really? :) I guess it's a good work out for me! This was a video we took a few days ago... have to admit, it's pretty cute. Taya's little giggle and scream is hilarious. Enjoy...

Just Do It

#1. So today I decided that it was finally time to clean my microwave. Yes, it's been a long time, and I'm embarassed about it, but the reward was so much worth the effort. So now I'm asking you, when was the last time you cleaned your microwave? Has it been more than 3 months? If so, your microwave will truly be greatful for the cleaning. Maybe, so you don't forget to do it, you should just get off your bum right now, yes in the middle of reading my lame blog, and do it. You'll thank me later. And if your microwave is already spotless, maybe you should come clean mine next week because obviously you're better at doing it than me.
#2. I went to Walgreens tonight to pick up a perscription and as I was walking out the door, straight to my car, I turned my head slightly to see a man walking quickly towards me. I started walking faster and he said "miss... miss... can I have a dollar?" I kept walking and told him I didn't have any cash and hurried and got inside my car and locked the doors. I started shaking in my car, terrified, and drove home. I've been thinking about it for a little while... what would I have done if anything had happened? I had nothing to protect myself, but my muscles of course :). Anyways, the point of my #2 is that I decided I need to get some mace. And so do you. You never know. And don't be nieve about it because it really could happen to you. And also, if that creepy man is out there reading this, heads up, it's never cool to chase a girl down in the pitch dark and ask for money. Especially when you look as creepy as you did. So if you really did need money, I apologize, but really, c'mon.

Christmas 2008

This year we got to go to Washington for Christmas and had so much fun! Taya and I went a few days early and were so spoiled by my parents! I think Taya gets a little bored with just me at the house now! Thanks again Mom and Dad for the wonderful Christmas! Here are a few, or a lot of pictures from the trip...

Cameron finally came in 1st place with his gingerbread house, he was pretty proud!


Taya's reindeer antlers

Christmas morning... aren't we beautiful!? :)


I don't think Taya really cared about her stroller or anything else she got, except for the candy!



Andrew, Jenna, Dad, Mom, Taya and Jami


This was my favorite... Jami wanted to play in the snow but didn't have snow clothes so she put on my dad's coveralls, boots, gloves and whatever else she's wearing and went to play with all the kids. It was hilarious watching her walk in these huge clothes!


This is one of Taya's new faces, only she's being modest. Usually she looks like an old woman, or the girl on "The Ring". Sweet Taya :)

Grandma and Taya

Taya found a new toy while we were there

This is out at our pool, Taya looks like a marshmellow!

Taya splashed right when I took the picture and splashed Cam... love his face!

Last picture I promise... my mom is going to be so embarassed I posted this picture, but this, believe it or not, is a spider web frozen outside our front door! We all thought it was pretty crazy so I thought I would share it with all of you!

Happy late Holidays, hope everyone had a good Christmas!
