Ha ha!

Cochlear implants that is!  Get ya'lls minds out of the gutter!

We are so excited for mom.  She is finally going to be able to partake a little more in the daily life around here.  Basically it means she will have semi-normal function of her ear.  What a blessing!

My Mom's getting IMPLANTS!

Crazy weird, huh?  You'd think she's a little old for that.  I guess fake has no age!

Someone Else's Post

I just saw this post on  I was roaring!  How true is this?  You always think you look so fine until you see yourself through a camera lense...I love digital cameras!  Keep shooting until you get just the right angle!:)

Wonder Woman

Yesterday we had our family pictures taken. I was a little surprised to see the out come. It seems that my inner view of myself has been skewed for quite some time. This is how I envision myself... It turns out I actually look a little more like...
It's funny how a few innocent pictures take the wind out of your oh so confident sails. I suppose either way I'm still super. Damn camera...

Like Mother, Like Son

Do you see a common theme in these pictures?
Look close.
Yep, that tongue is always wagging!

Both Coop and I love to concentrate with our tongues out.
It makes our performance 27% more effective.
Scientifically proven.

Isn't this a cool picture?
This is me and Ethan strolling along.
I was trying to be creative.  

It's finally warmed up enough to go outside again.
This is the best time of year in Georgia because
it's gorgeous outside but the bugs are 
reluctant to leave their havens so you're not running from
bees and such all day!

We went on our SPONTANEOUS walk.  I love
watching the boys cross 
the cattle guard-it cracks me up!

I love it!

How To Feel Rich

There is something about wearing a robe that makes you feel like a 
million dollars.  It makes me feel like saying--
"Give me what I want because I must
be rich since I'm wearing a robe!"

Jake and I went on a "SPONTANEOUS" trip to Hilton Head
as one of our Christmas gifts from my special parents!

It was the most AMAZING trip.  We were totally kid-less for what seemed
like the first time in forever. (Thank you Claire and Jason)

We stayed in a gorgeous and atmospheric
You know you're living the high life when you have fancy naked 
statues in the pool area:
Then we combed the island shore in search of treasure to become more rich:
( I don't really know what that meant but I just wanted
to use the word "rich" again)
Then we felt uber-rich when we threw caution
to the wind and treated ourselves to the most
dinner we've ever had at:
Yeah, we were rich.  
But now we're even more poor...

And we don't regret a minute of it!

March Goal

March Goal

My goal for this month is:
Be Spontaneous!
I often find myself getting in a rut with my schedule-type personality.
Jake said to me the other day: 
"I think I could predict 95% of the time how you would
react in a situation."
That's pretty pathetic.  
I want to be less predictable.

Therefore, I bring you spontaneity-every day!!
 (If it's planned spontaneity, is it still spontaneous?:))

Here's a few of the things we've done so far: 
(a fun new game called Clue where I draw
pics and the kids run to find the next
clue resulting in a fun prize in the end-silly string)
So far we've had a blast!

Pants on the Ground

Looking like a fool with your pants on the ground.
Looking like a cutie with your pants on the ground.

Tacky Me

No, I'm not dressing up.
This was an honest to goodness outfit I wore.
I know, it's pathetic.

You can laugh.  Permission granted.

So This Is Love

BFF.  Forever.
They love each other even more than the super cool circus they went to see together.  Now that's love for 3 year old's.
