This was just too funny I had to share. I know that I am a mean mommy because I have never lasughed so hard in my life. Normaly she loves anything to do with Sesame street especially Elmo, but for some reason Cookie monster dressed up as a baby freaks her out! It has ever since she was little. We havnt watched this Elmo in a longime so I forgot all about it and figured that she would be over it but no still terrified!!

I think she has a problem with white/gray hair or bonnets on their heads, or maybe she is affraid of gray hair because of this video. hmm

Oy with the poodles already

Lorelai: Huh. You know what I just relized? Oy is the funniest word in the entire world.
Rory: Huh.
Lorelai: I mean, think about it. You never hear the word oy and not smile. Impossible. Funny, funny word.
Lorelai: Poodle is another funny word
Emily: Please drink your drink lorelai
Lorelai: in fact if you put oy and poodle together in the same sentence, youd have a great new catch phrase, you know? Like, Oy with the poodles already. So from now on, when the perfect circumstances arise, we will use our favorite new catch phrase
Rory: Oy with the poodles already.
Lorelai: Im telling ya its knocking "what you talkn' bout willis" right out of first place.
Emily: Lorelai be quiet

Happy Bithday Stinky!!

Happy Birthday Stinky was one of Ashlyns favorite skits from sesame street. It was so funny to watch her get so excited over the whole thing. I just thought the title fit her well!!

Once she heard elmo in that bag she went crazy! She couldn't get him out fast enough and started to get frustrated

This is the deck in our backyard and Ashlyn went up and down and up and down.....

and up and down. It was so cute!!

These are the funny looking cupcakes that I made.

If you can't tell they are elmo, cookie monster and big bird.

This was the cake we let her eat. I thought that with it being elmo she would dive right in and try to eat his nose like she does her stuffed elmos. She didn't. Maybe it was too late and she was just too full from the prime rib and potato salad.

The worst Emotion

Yesterday something happend to me that made so so mad. It was the stupidest thing ever but it really pissed me off. It got me wondering what my least favorite emotion was.
So I decided that my least favorite emotion is Angry ( it leads to the dark side ). It just ruins my day and mood. I hate being mad at people. I never like to hold grudges either and I have a few right now that I would love to get past.

What emotion do you hate.

Things i've learned so far

1. There is a plan in motion, we may not see it right away but its there.

A. It was not hard to get pregnant with Ashlyn. Now I know why.

B. I had a C section. Now every delivery from now on can be planned.

C. Ashlyn is so dependant. She started walking at 9 months. She is going to be such a big help.

D. Having to stay in the hospital longer than expected. If we were home we probably wouldn't have figured out the reason for the sickness until it was too late.

2. Family is wonderful!

A. Don't really need to explain there.

3. God will help you get through anything, all you have to do is ask and know how to listen.

4. He really does answer your prayers just not they way you might have thought.

A. I wanted to stay home and take care of my family and do photography, now I have that opportunity.

Im sure that there will be additions to this post in the future!

Here we go Again

Well for the last couple of weeks Nate has been getting really weak and losing some of the mobility that he has. The doctors thought that it was drug related. They changed some things around but he was still getting weaker.
A couple of days ago he had a MRI done and the test results showed he has scar tissue that formed around his spinal cord and is creating pockets of fluid that is causing his cord to swell. He is going into surgery tomorrow to have it removed. this is a rare and complicated surgery and the doctor wasn't going to do it until monday because she wanted to research it and make sure that all her ducks were in a row. After consulting with other surgeons she has decided to go ahead and do it tomorrow. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers!!!!
If you were not on the first email list and want to be leave me a commet with your email. Thank you for all of your support!!

Can babies hear in the whomb?

I say YES. Ashlyn has always loved Nascar and Football and So You Think You Can Dance, which Nate and I watched alot while I was pregnant. Of course she could just love to watch moving noisy things. I have been watching Gilmore Girls lately and everytime the theme song comes on she imediatly stops what she is doing, turns around and starts clapping. Once the theme song is over she is done with it. She dosen't do it for any other shows, well maybe elmo. I used to watch it at least once maybe twice a day ( yeah I know I am obsessed ), so its like she remembers it or something.

What do you think? Do you have any stories like this?

This is my new love I dont have the money to buy an external flash right now but I hate using my pop up flash on my camera. This is supposed to soften the harsh light that comes out of that flash. It is really cheep and if it works great, and if not im only out 15 dollars.

10 Guilty Pleasure

Well Amy you have inspired me to write my top ten guilty Pleasures

1. Gilmore Girls.

The more i watch it the more I love it. I have seen every episode so many times it is amazing. Some episodes I just have to know the title and I know what is going to happen in that episode. Bonus points if you can guess what episode the picture is from.

2. Facebook

I just love to get on and read peoples status updates

3. Fabric Stores

Oh my gosh I could go into a fabric store be in there for hours and come out with nothing or come out with 5 yards of Fabric just because I thought it was cute. I am starting to become a fabric Hoarder

4.Book Stores

Man this one might be more on the obsessive list. I have so many books that I have bought and not read and I still want to keep buying. And most of them are the teen books. They are good stories and you don't have to put alot of thought into following a plot.

5.Food Network Channel

I never thought that I would get hooked on this channel I mean all they do is cook how exciting can that be? But here I am hopelessly addicted

6.Real World / Road Rules Challenge

Or just Real World. When it comes to Real World its all about the drama. The Challenges, its all about the competitions + drama makes for a real good show!


I am really starting to love purses, I can't afford most of them but they sure are fun to lok at!

8 Gadjets

Especially kitchen gadjets anything that looks fun to play with, or that would make life easier. I really want a lemon zester even though I will probably never use it. I just got a panni press because it was on sale and I have always wanted one. I just hope that I use it

9. Beads

I want to make really cute jewlery but, I can't ever figure out how to put the cute beads together to make cute jewlery. I struggle bad when it come to that.


Need I say more?
