They say you are what you eat...well I have been calling little Lauren my lollipop. She has a little twig body but a perfectly beautiful yet round head with chubby cheeks! So today Hannah gave her a lollipop. Lauren was very happy. So she eats what she is, kind of like the chicken before the egg thing!
FYI: This little cutie will be one whole year old soon!

You are Superman
|You are mild-mannered, good, |
strong and you love to help others.
Click here to take the Superhero Personality Quiz
In the Wikepedia it says this used to be the preferred method for washing you child's mouth out...I always thought the bar of soap in a Christmas Story was HUGE!
So back to informing you this little bar costs about $1.00 and it is like stain magic, the super-hero, no-brainer stain remover. It is fabulous. I have to admit that I am glad that my kids are at the stage where their clothes don't last too long because of childhood stains and such, but this is simple and easy. I will run clothes through the washer and dryer and see a stain. No problem just get the clothing wet and rub the bar across it and let it sit for 1 minute, and throw it back in the wash. Wah-lah! Stain free clothes, which is awesome for a number of reasons!
So THANK YOU JEN!

Today we were watching The Fox and the Hound. Sorry there may be a spoiler here! Todd, the fox, gets abandoned for his own safety, he was a house pet so doesn't understand the "real world". As it is raining he is trying to find safety and a friendly animal comes and invites Todd to stay with him. I asked Logan what kind of animal it was and he said "the pine cone one" I thought it was cute. Then I asked if it was because he had pine cones on him and Logan gave me the a-firm. Then I burst his 5 year old bubble by smiling and informing him it was a Porcupine.
Then as I was unloading...my children, Haylie asked me when do you get baptized. I was proud of the question, even though it was random. I informed her when you are 8. She then responded "Is Daddy going to be baptized?" I am assuming she didn't think he was eight but children are sometimes brutally honest!
So there you have it another installment of "Out of the mouths of babes!"

Todat Logan cracked me up, hopefully you will find it almost as comical. Logan asked me today:
"Mom, where do legs come from?"
I tried to buy myself some time because my answers are always wordy and not terribly easy to comprehend for most adults let a lone a child whose attentions is shorter than his little legs, so I said:
"Where do you think they come from?"
He responds matter-of-factly:
"from your bottom!"
What do you say to that!

Life has been super crazy, but I am beginning to think no matter who you are life and crazy are synonymous! I have a confession to make that proves my slight...uh-um.., irresponsibility. I, as of late, have been obsessed with a little game called Zelda on our N64, yes we have a game system, actually two, we have a PlayStation also and a total of 4 games one for the PlayStation and 3 for the N64. OK so I lost my train of thought for a minute. Back to my obsession. So for those of you who know me when I like something I get a little OK a LOT focused, the world around me no longer exists. This would be fine if I didn't have three ingenious children and a newly mobile yet very inquisitive baby! Since I have started playing I can't tell you how many tissues were wasted, how much food was sneaked (or is it snuck) out of the refrigerator, how much tear-able stuff has been destroyed, how many keyboard setting windows on the Internet have been opened, OK so you get the picture. Well I decided it was the beginning of a month and that I should download all the pictures from my memory stick. I put it in the computer and probably caved into Logan's request that I play Zelda. I forgot! Three days later I went to upload pictures so I could blog about some fum moment we had, low and behold, it was gone, a full 2GB memory card was gone! When we got our new camera Jeremy made me promise that I would take care of it and not leave it within arm's reach, well pretty much out of site from my twin-ados. Our last camera bit the dust when Hayley damaged the lens by what I can only assume to be Lucky Charms and a few nice drops. After a week being camera-less and a Christmas tree purchase in-site we purchased a new camera. We had decided that no more damage could be done to the old camera, so Jeremy dropped it a couple more times, and wouldn't you know it works! So that was an expensive lesson for me. I guess I am still learning or need specific instructions. Lucky for me, he never specifically encouraged the same respect for the memory card. Jeremy went through both garbage cans in the bathrooms (I am married to an amazing man I should have had that gross job), which is where the girls insisted it was. We moved our entertainment center another place they insisted they put it, I cleaned the middle children's room from top to bottom, I have vacuumed everything, and looked in all couch crevasses, luckily I cleaned under the cushions a couple of weeks ago, man was that embarrassing! It is no where to be found. It has been about two weeks since the discovery and we caved and bought a 4GB memory card this past weekend. I am now waiting for the old one to show up.
Just in case you were wondering, Logan thinks I am awesome because I play Zelda. When his little friend Ben comes over he says whose mom is better mine or yours? I tell Logan all boys think that their own mom is the best. Please note Ben ALWAYS pleads the fifth. I sometimes give him good stuff so I am sure he doesn't want to bite the hand that feeds him, ha-ha!

It is so nice having warmer weather. We have visited several new parks and have enjoyed the fresh air. It is moments like these when I am reminded how adorable my children are and how much they really do love each other. I do have to say, all of the older ones adore Lauren. they always are tyring to play with her. I am still trying to convince Logan she is not a rag doll!

We were coming home from a friends house and we were driving passed land that houses Llamas, yes that is right llamas. (Don't you just love the randomness of California). Logan says "Mommy, when are we gonna get a llama?" I am not sure why this was so funny other than he asked it in a way that suggests everyone has llamas, or that it was already on our to-do list. I am sure we only hear half the funny thoughts run though their heads.
