Things Found In Jake's Pants Before Going into the Wash...

Yep...I went to throw Jake's jeans in the wash, and this is what I found...2 army men (if you look closely at the tan one, he's mysteriously missing his head lol) 11 cents, a bowling pin, and a "crystal" (he gets those when he does good at school-he loves them lol) I guess I can understand it all but the bowling pin. That has me curious...

Liv's 3 Year Well Check...

My cheeky Monkey is growing leaps and bounds!! She's currently 35lbs and 41 inches long! She was weighed and measured 4mths ago. She's grown 3lbs and 3 inches in 4 months!!! She's now 90% for her weight, and 97% for her height. If the height predictors are right, she'll be about 5ft 11 by the time she's 18 (not that I'm surprised! lol)

Monday, November 23rd-You Might As Well JUMP!

Josey wanted me to take a picture of her jumping, so of course, the other kids wanted to get in on it. I thought they turned out so funny!

I love this one of Jake-I totally cracks me up!!!

Sunday, November 22nd-Christmas Comes Early at the Bulloss House...

I took the kid's Christmas pics on Sunday so I could take advantage of a Costco coupon I had. I think they turned out great! And, in true Jake and Olivia fashion, we got some good outtakes...

Aww, smiling so nice!

So sweet....

I'm gonna poke your eye out, Jake! You'd better watch yourself!

Don't kiss me! I'm gonna give you an upper cut to the chops!

Love you!!!

Saturday November 21st-Organizing Her M & Ms...

By color, of course! Hank, if you're reading this, who does it remind you of??? (think skittles...) And yes, she has a messy face. She just got done eating lunch =)

Friday, November 20th-Liv Gets Her Nails Painted for the 1st Time!

and what color did I use? Hooker red...I already lost my MOTY award back in January, so why not?? lol She was estatic! She couldn't get over how pretty her nails and toes looked.

Monday, November 16th-The Cowboys and Indians Were At War Apparently...

on my kitchen counter. Jake apparently decided it would be a good idea to set them up. I came around the corner and started cracking up. This is pretty typical of Jake LOL

Wednesday, Nov 11th-The Girl Loves Her Bink & Her Blankie

Seriously, she loves them both. It's actually become worse since I told her once this binkie was gone, no more would come. She advised me that I could just go to the store and get another one. She's seen them in packages, you know. Yep, Senorita Smarty Pants. That's my girl *sigh* I have to admit, as much as I am ready for the binkie to be gone, it's her last baby thing that she does, and when it's gone, it will be bittersweet =(

Monday, November 9th-Me and my Baby

Getting love from my baby-Nuff said =)

Tuesday, November 3rd-The Power of the Barbie

Liv got a bunch of barbie stuff for her birthday. She loves it-Jake digs it, too. Gets him in touch with his feminine side :p (and yes, this was also taken as blackmail for later-not that I don't already have plenty of THOSE around ;-) )

Monday- November 2nd- 5, 15, 35....

Me, 5 yrs old-cute little bowl cut

Oh, 15, how 1989 of you lol

and now (yes, that's me-I was an *ahem* cat, for Halloween)
I was just scanning some old pics to put on FB and I was just cracking up at these pictures. These are me @ 5, 15, and 35. I couldn't find any of me @ 25-I didn't want to go digging...

Sunday November 1st- Tired Little Monkey

I normally don't check on the kids RIGHT before I go to bed...Usually they're so out I don't bother, however, something told me to check on Liv. This is how I found her. Notice she had her favorite blanket (which she MUST sleep with)

Saturday, October 31st-Happy Halloween!!

Here's the Cheeky Monkey and the Lego. Yes, I made the costume! I think it turned out great! Though, I ended up having to carry it 1/2 way thru....

Friday, October 30th-Slave Labor at it's Finest...

This is actually from a couple of weeks ago...Liv spilled her snack in the living room. I decided it would be a good lesson to have her vaccuum it up. I don't really think she learned anything from it, since she now wants to vaccuum all the time, but oh well lol

Thursday, October 29th-Pumpkin Carving day in the USA!

I should actually say that *I* had pumpkin carving day in the USA. I cut the tops off, the kids cleaned alittle bit of the guts out, then got bored so I had to finish them. I did not get pictures of Liv, who is now being called "Sharpie" by my parents. After I got done doing ALL the pumpkins, I was aggravated enough to say forget carving out faces, they can just draw on theirs. Yeah, big mistake. I had a serious lapse in judgement...I gave Jake AND Liv sharpies to decorate the front of their pumpkins. Jake made some silly face on his-no problems, right? Well, Ms Liv, not to be outdone, decided the chair, the floor, her stomach, a part of the garbage can, and oh yes, some of the pumpkin, needed to be sharpied...You may ask, "WHere was Melanie when this was going on??" She stupidly had her head turned away from the kids. I was resting for a minute since I was tired from all the carving (ok, yeah, I hear you-LAME, FEEBLE EXCUSE, but I'm using it anyway) Maybe it was more than a minute....hmmm....Either way, I screamed when I turned my head an noticed what was going on. Liv, knowing she was going to get in tr ouble, had the forthought to go under the table to do her dirty work. I have no one to blame but myself...

Jake, poisng all nice while cleaning his pumpkin

Yes, that's Liv, licking it *sigh*

One of Jake's infamous funny faces LOL

And the Cheeky Monkey, pre-sharpie LOL

Wednesday, October 28thThis is how Jake plays the Wii...

So, I know alot of you haven't had the pleasure of watching Jake play the Wii, but really, it's a sight to be seen. He can't sit still mostly (poor kid gets it from me) These 2 poses are pretty tame. I've seriously seen the kid with his head into the carpet, facing backwards, looking at the TV from between his legs, and controling the Wii game SOMEHOW...I seriously don't get it, but hey! What can I say? He is MY child, so there's plenty of room for alittle weirdness there.

Tuesday, October 27th-Meeting up with Mel, Theo, and Remy!

One of my best friends, Melanie, came into town with her boyfriend Theo and her beautiful 3mth old son, Remy. I was able to meet up with them for dinner in Bend. Originally, they were going to stay at our house for 2 days, however, with the flu germs barely escaping our humble abode, we mutually decided it wasn't such a great idea to have them come to germ country LOL. It was so wonderful to see them. I was sad for the night to end.

Monday, October 26th-Happy 3rd Birthday, Cheeky!!!

Look at how my Cheeky Monkey has grown!! From her first Halloween, to her 3rd birthday! Happy Birthday, my sweet little girl!
