Let's see...You can wear it as a half shirt (hello 1985)
If that doesn't work, go to Familyfun.com (Family Fun magazine) and search for birdseed biscuit-They were a hit!

Here's Liv-She's not sure if she should shovel or use it as a golf club. She was doing both. She was also using the wiffle ball as a golf ball. I guess that almost ensures that she doesn't miss it!

So, we were on our way home from school yesterday and Jake was acting slightly off. I asked him if his stick was moved @ school and he said no (they each have a stick that gets moved if they aren't acting good at school), so I decided to check because he's been known to lie (what 6 yr old doesn't??) SO, as I go reaching for his bag, he says "Mom, I wrote a bad word today but I didn't mean to. It started with an S" So, I open his homework folder to see this:
And because my son is smart, he took the note off that the teacher stapled to the picture and threw it in the garbage before he left school. Now, if he were REALLY smart, he would've just thrown the whole thing away and NOT told me that he ripped the note off LOL. That's what I would've done when I was in school (and did lots-Sorry Mom!) but I digress...
But the real question is: Why is the Star Wars guy saying shit?

I forgot how comforting it is to look outside and see all the birds getting food out of the feeder. We haven't had birdfood in the feeder for awhile. I filled it on Sunday and they're coming in droves (including the big ol mean blue jays) You can't tell but we had light snow all day (that amounted to nothing lol) Is it Spring yet???
So, I put Liv in the tub and made Jake take a shower in my bathroom-my mistake. Normally we do this, it goes off without a hitch (well, except me going in 100x to tell Jake he's all done, and then the 101th time where I turn the water off or on cold, depending on my mood) Well, not so last night. Liv showered with me a couple of times last week, so the tub was not in use. We live in the High Desert (aka dirtville) so sediments always sit in the pipes if they aren't turned on all the time. I'm trying to hurry beacause it's late, so I put Liv in, turn the water on and immediately start washing her hair. I see the sediments so I stopped and waited. Liv saw them and started FREAKING OUT. She thought they were bugs. I'm telling her over and over "It's just dirt! It's just dirt!" Finally she calms down, I wash her hair, go to put conditioner in, starts screaming again "I HAVE TO POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP" and freaks out (she pooped in the tub and wouldn't go in for WEEKS without throwing a huge fit) so, I got her out and put her on the potty, she's crying because she's wet and cold, then what do my ears hear? Jake screaming *sigh* so I go running into the other bathroom, leaving Liv dripping all over the place on the toilet. Jake has shampop in his eyes. Well, correct me if I'm wrong, but the last time I checked, you're only supposed to use a little, not 1/2 the bottle (hmm, could be part of the problem, you think??) So, I'm helping Jake clean out his hair, all the while Liv's on the toilet yelling, "Mommy, I just farted-No Pooooooooooooooooooooooop!" I'm yelling at her to stay there, Jake's crying because he wants a wash cloth for his eyes, I'm getting water all over myself, AHHHHHHHH Calgon, take me away!
So, I'm sure most of you can get a visual on what I went thru and don't really need pictures. Finally got everyone washed, dried, and put away. I need a drink...
(and btw, Jake's shower ended in cold water this time-THAT was how my mood was LOL)

The day started out rainy and overcast. Jake wanted to build a fort downstairs but convinced him I could build a bigger, better one upstairs. So, we built a cool fort. Halfway thru, the sun came out, which was GREAT! The kids decided lunch in the fort was a good idea. After Liv went down for a nap, I decided to go clean out my car (which is a death trap with all the loose crap in there) It was so beautiful out (probably about 50, but felt like 75 LOL) that I started trimming bushes here, cleaning up there. I even convinced the Wii Master to come out and help alittle. We removed sticks and all kinds of fun stuff together. I was bitten by the Spring Fever bug, but alas, we have snow in the forecast for Mon/Tue *sigh* What's the saying? Patience, Grasshopper....

That my little fire cracker would be afraid of bugs??? LOL This is a new thing. Not sure where it came from, but anything she finds on the floor that moves, that she thinks can possibly be a bug, she's freaking out about it. If you hear her say "OH NO!" with a perplexed look on her face, you can bet she's found something that resembles a bug. She freaked out the other day because she thought a piece of lint was a bug! So, tonight there was a spider crawling around on the floor. She wouldn't go near it. She even wanted the dog to eat it LOL If you listen close, you can hear her say at the end that the bug is scaring her LOL
You'll be happy to know the spider met it's demise and is currently forever sleeping in our garbage can (where she instructed me to put it several times after she couldn't convince the dog to eat it LOL)

So, I had it in one of those planters that you pour the water in the bottom, and the string supposedly brings the water to the plant. Well, it was working for a long time, then, just in the past couple of weeks, I've noticed my poor plant dying (and before you ask, YES, I was watering it!!). You can't really tell by this picture below, but it's all dry and breaking off (and out of the little stock holes) Here it is before I cleaned her up:
and this is my poor plant now, after giving her new soil, a trim, and watering her from the top. Isn't she pathetic?
So, going strictly on sentimental value, I need good growing thoughts/prayers. I was practically in tears trimming the plant up =( I hate being sentimental over stupid things LOL
