I caught her licking the syrup off the paper plate (yep, breakfast on a paper plate-gotta problem with that?!?!?! lol) She had 2 french toast sticks (thank you Eggos lol) and 1/2 banana. The other half met it's demise on the ground. I swear, I don't know what to do with her. She begs for things then only eats 1/2. I've taken to saving the items and making her eat them later, however, bananas are un-save-able. Can you even imagine that a couple hours later? Blech...
Oh, and the Jake-ism for the day: This is what he said to me in the car tonight: "Mom, I like to smell the air. I think I'm going to be a smell detective" LMAO! Can you imagine? Wonder where he can go to college for that...

Liv running around with Gumby and Pokey, beating them on the head, screaming YEHAW!
Jake taking 20 minutes to pick out something to wear because I made the mistake of not pulling his clothes for the day.
Me picking Jake up from school early because I had a dentist appt-where was he instead of recess? In the classroom, missing recess, because he was too busy talking and interrupting the teacher all day.
Getting to the dentist's office-what's first on the agenda before we walk in? Soap in Liv's mouth for giving me a huge amount of attitude on the way to the dentist's office. OR even BETTER...Both kids sit like little Angels UNTIL I lean back and get 2 people over me and am incapacitated, then it was a version of "Kid's Gone Wild" where Liv decided it would be GRAND to run up and down the aisles @ the dr's office, and Jake, oh my sweet little Jake, not to be outdone by Liv, decided that the saddle that is FOR SHOW, in the corner, would be great to sit on. Yep, all the while, I'm waiting for a hole to open up in the floor to swallow me whole. THEN they had the audacity to cry when I said no cookie upon leaving the dr's office.
So, needless to say, when we got home, both kids ate dinner and went straight to their rooms until bedtime.
So, with all the picture choices today, you can see why I was so overwhelmed and couldn't pick just one. Just try visualizing it....

1) I look great in pink
2) You couldn't resist my pouty face
3) My sweet little voice
4) I can get away with pigtails
5) Duh...Because I'm cute!
Ok this was from Jake's soccer game the other day. I'm cheating...I didn't take any pics today. But, I had to post this one. Isn't she cute?? Yep, that's how she gets away with everything. She flashes that stinking smile. Everything is better after that smile. Pour water all over the floor? Just give an innocent smile. Used a sharpie all over you clothes? No problem-out come the pearly whites. The "I can get away with anything" smile...Yep. It comes out often in this house. If the smile doesn't work, the whining comes...Oh, the whining. I think my ears have actually bled from it.

This is what happens when Jake can read. He was reading the back of his gummy bear vitamins a week or two ago and advised me that he needed to take his vitamins because he needed more eye health.
I also have to remember there is such a thing as TMI with a 2 yr old...Liv asked for more grapes at lunch because it will "help her poop some nuggets" I only told her it would help her poop...she so thoughtfully added the descriptive word "nuggets" to the sentence...

Sooo...Liv was supposed to be in bed last night. I was in my bedroom talking to Jake while he was in the shower, putting away clothes. I went to come out so I could put some of Jake's clothes away, and I see Liv @ the kitchen table, water EVERYWHERE. Apparently she grabbed Jake's water bottle off the table, drank some water, then spit the rest out all over the floor. I was so mad, I grabbed the towels out of the bathroom and made her clean up the whole mess herself. The only thing she didn't clean was the table, and only because I didn't want her to make a bigger mess with stuff on the table. And apparently I made her so tired, she couldn't even make it to her bed to fall asleep!

Liv giggling @ Jake's soccer game, August 2009
Look at my boy go! He's become so much better this year! Go Blue Thunder!!
Posing with his soccer ball.
so, I'd bought some peppers one day. I cut up a bunch but left a couple in the fridge because I wanted to make stuffed peppers. Well, Liv came around the corner with red juice on her, telling me she ate the peppers. I ASSuMED that she was eating the already cut up ones in the fridge. Well, later, I went to go make my stuffed peppers and noticed that she'd bit a hole in both the peppers I was going to use! (Aug/09)
Liv getting her cast off. She was so good that the 2nd nurse that was in the room ended up leaving because she wasn't needed. They said they needed to video her to show everyone how you're supposed to act while getting a cast off.
Jake was cold one morning...Quite the get up, huh??? 8-09
This summer we went to Idaho. I got to meet up with a long lost friend Jimmy and his wonderful wife and kids Leanne, Andy, and Nate. We ended up going to the Boise Zoo. It was so hot, but the kids all got along great (so did Leanne and I - WOO HOO!) We had a really fun time!
This is alittle out of order, but this is from the Prineville Round up Rodeo. The mounted police let Liv get up on the horse. She was in HEAVEN! She had a blast that day. 6-28-09
Liv in the crawl thru tube. I just thought it was a cute picture =) 6-09
Jake and Liv "reading" on the couch one day in June. It's just such a cute picture. Liv wants desperately to read like Jake. 7-09
On Uncle Alex and Aunt Heather's boat. We drove down to Christina and Darren's house, got in their motor home, then drove to Lake Don Pedro, where we camped with Heather, Alex, Christina, Darren, Angie and her family, etc. We had a GREAT time! Jake put on a lifevest and was a pro in the water. It was so nice to see since last year he was such a chicken!
