Bigger and Better to come...

Christmas is over and a new year to start soon. I just thought I'd bore you with some pictures of our fun times the last two weeks.
ps-Brag Note: I've already taken Christmas decor down and spring cleaned my ceiling fans. Hows that for efficient?

Mess up.

Banda Rae, I wrote this huge long post professing my love for you and how smart and talented you are, then it didn't post. I have no idea what went wrong but I messed up. So imagine a beautiful post devoted to you.

Just know I love ya and miss being close to your cute family. Happy 29th birthday.

One more I promise...

Today is one of my GREATEST friends birthday. Unfortunately the bus depot is calling and I'll probably be there all day sorting schedules.

Happy Birthday BANDA RAY.

My baby is growing up

So this week is full of birthdays. Apparently lots of people I know were born in the month of December including my baby Jack.

Let me tell you a little about him:

Jack likes to organize his trucks and cars in neat straight rows
Jack tells me "peepee" when he has pooped or peed his diaper (toilet time?)
Jack hates to go to bed at night. After the lights are off, he is hiding in the hallway playing with toys for at least another hour after Cam's asleep.
Jack has long curly hair (up until yesterday, I made a mistake cutting it-so i had to shave it off)
Jack loves choo choo trains. He had a "dobas" (Thomas) the train set that he plays with nonstop.
Jack likes the movie "puppies" (101 dalmatians). This is the movie he prefers when he is playing with dobas.
Jack wants to learn the computer asap. He always wants to sit on my lap when Im checking email or posting.
Jack is a lover. He likes to sit in my lap any time he can.
Jack can frown and scowl with the best of em.
Jack is a good boy.

I love that little boy. How do you tell him he's not going to be the baby very much longer? Happy 2 year old. Momma loves you.

Happy Birthday to Danyelle too. She and Jack share this day!

I'm not a big fan of this cold snap we're having. As long as it keeps up, the roads stay bad, my buses will not come across the pass, therefore I don't make money. So as you all are home cozy by the fireplace reading a good book. I'll be @ greyhound reassuring passengers the buses again will run...someday.
Happy Winter to you.

ps-shoutout to my gal Flibbie. It's her Birthday!

Wish List

I know you all are dying to know what to get me this Christmas so I thought I'd help you out and post a little list. It's up to you to do the rest. Happy shopping.

1. New towels/washcloths for my bathroom
2. Brand NEW king bed
3. Cam and Jack in bed @ 8pm and asleep EVERYNIGHT.
4. My rings sparkling clean and not just after a trip to the mall, all the time!
5. Greyhound to be super busy making me $$$$, but not need me to put out fires on Monday morning.
6. A couple of tall standing lamps
7. A Roomba to vacuum my floors
8. A couple of big old frames for my new family pictures
9. A cupboard endlessly full of Fruit loops and Alphabets cereal (do they even make it anymore?)
10. Airplane tickets anywhere warm

I love this time of year. And especially as I get older I love to listen to the Christmas Devotional from the first presidency of the church. Honestly there isn't anything I need or even want for Christmas. I really need to show my love to Heavenly Father through service to my fellow men. So forgive me for being so greedy, and I'll be over soon to wash windows I promise.

Pregnancy becomes me

Me: How can I help you?

Male passenger: Are you pregnant?

Me: (cough) oh, yeah I am.

Me: How can I help you?

Female passenger: How far along are you?!

Me: (cough, cough, ahem...) Oh not as far as I look. I tend to carry my babies straight out... Enjoy your trip.

Actual events. Only the names have been changed.
