Trick or Treat

Kyra loved Halloween last year and I think she got the hang of it. Today she came to me with her glasses on and said:

"Trick or Treat... Give me candy NOW"

I think she has it down.

Locked Out

So on this lovely rainy morning I decided to take the kids to school. When Kyra, Amikai, and I got home we opened the garage and went to open the door to the house only to discover IT WAS LOCKED.....

"This can't be good" responded Amikai. "Who locked the Door?" (me) "It wasn't me mom" (kyra)

So we went to all the doors and windows around the house, but of course they were all locked. The 15+ keys I was given when we bought the house were all in a perfect place INSIDE THE HOUSE.....Great! So now what???????

1. Checked for any open doors or windows...FAIL

2. Attempt to open lock with safety pin and screw driver....FAIL

3. Prayer....finally success

4. Kick door open with foot!!!! yay we made it in

5. Repair broken door frame to the best of ones ability.....still needs paint! :)

So after this ordeal was over I was thinking.... One kick of a foot to knock a door down, and I care about my house because it's mine. But what about someone who does not care? What about a thief? That's all it would take is a little kick on the door or a broken window.

So I came to a couple conclusions......

1. Put a key on my key ring duh....
2. Put a key outside just in case I can't get in the garage and break the door down.
3. If a piece of wood is all that stands between you and your safety then GET A BIGGER GUN......

Amikai my dear Amikai........ It's one thing when your child says something inappropriate and you get to hear about it. When he does it right there with you it seems much more embarrassing. I took the Amikai and Kyra to get an ice cream and a bite to eat at a local hamburger place. As Amikai was sitting there eating his lunch a LARGE man walks by a chair sticking out and runs into it saying "ouch" Amikai simply replies "STUPID HURTS DUDE"................

Hurt Ears and Orange Peels

Yesterday morning Kyra came into my room and told me her ear hurt and she wanted a glass of water and an Orange peel.

I said Kyra we don't have any oranges. Yes we do mom.... Then walked off annoyed with me because I couldn't understand how an orange peel could possibly help her ear. A few minutes later she comes in my room with a bottle of children's Meltaways Tylenol. "ORANGE PILLS SEE MOM"

Vacation 2009

We went to Klamath Falls Oregon this year. We all had a wonderful time. It is so nice to get away from the everyday routine. The Wildlife was so beautiful, I think I found the place I would like to retire.

One day we were driving back from site seeing and a huge Eagle flew right in front of us to catch a ground squirrel. We had to stop so we did not hit it.

Another day a blue jay was playing on our patio while we were enjoying breakfast.

Here is a picture of all the kids sitting on the couch just making silly faces.

I think Andy enjoyed playing with the kids. What a good dad he is.

I know this may come as a shock to most of you but I have a bittersweet little girl living in my house. Like a grapefruit, it looks so tempting on the outside and then you open it up and it's even more tempting to take a "what you think" is going to be a SWEET juicy taste of this beautiful fruit. Then you put your lips up to this fruit and it burns your mouth with this disgusting bitter taste that leaves you wishing you had never tasted it to begin with.
Kyra is like a grapefruit so cute so beautiful, and as long as you don't get close to her your fine. If you even think about getting close to her she will reel you in even closer with her cute little I love yous, her smiling face, and cute little dancing body, then when you think you are good and close and you go to kiss her she bites your lip, then giggles in delight. Wait until you try to sleep, just ask Amikai. She looks so cute when you close you eyes then she strikes pinching, and poking, and laughing the whole time. What a cute little stinker.
