Kid Logic

Breanna: Mom can we make these right now (holding the rice krispies)

Me: No we will make them later

Breanna: Can I have a marshmallow?

Me: No not right now

Breanna: Can we make them right now if you let me have a marshmallow?

How does this work does any one else understand this?

Handy Hubby

So we are in lethbridge for the weekend. The kids are loving being with grandma and grandpa. And the aunties are especially loving being with the new baby. IT has been fun especially since the car decided to have issues once we got here. We are very grateful that it waited till lethbrige and did not decide to go when we got on the road.

Last night Jon and I were coming back from seeing "The Prestige" (excelent movie by the way) when the the power steering went and the battery light came on. We made it back to Jon's parents and he managed to steer the van into the driveway. As he looked under the hood he discoverd that the tension pulley had gone. It is a pulley that provides tension on the belt that drives the alternator, the water pump, the power sterring and some other important things. Basically with out it we would have ended up stuck on the side of the highway.

Thankfully It is something that Jon can fix by himself. Yay! He has saved us so much money on mechanic expenses since we got married. He has already got the replacement pulley we just need to get a bolt to replace the one that Jon had to cut when he was taking the pulley off which is a story in itself. Anyway hopefull we can get the bolt tomorow and get the car back together and get home tomorow as planned!!

So I hope everyone is having a good weekend in edmonton. And hopefully we will be home tomorow!

Please dont shoot!

Kari-Lynn and I went to wal-mart the other day with Skyler. It was pretty chilly outside. When we walked in the door the greeter lady told us how happy she was that we had bundled up the baby she said:

"Some parents bring their babies in without hats or warm coats or anything. It makes me want to take out my mommy gun and shoot them."

She seemed quite over zealous. But I was glad I passed the test. I felt a little smug. (ok so I am a shameless glutton for aproval. I know, but hey that is another story)

We were together at walmart again the other night. It was cool but not that cold out. As we walked out the door I flipped the blanket thing over top of the baby but I was not too picky about it. Then walmart lady leans over the cart as she says:

"O thats not very well covered up!"

I said something about covering him up more before we went through the second set of doors. Then she asked to see a reciept for our purchases as we had not put them in bags.

Yup last time I was responsible this time I am a parent who does not cover her baby well and steals baby wipes and formula!


Hey did you know you can use blogger now to post pics directly. I just learned this. I always thought you had to use a photohosting site like flickr. Cool.

Kings and Criminals

Ryan was trying to sneak away from the table with his macaroni and cheese today I stopped him once. Minutes later he was at it again. I saw him in the hall way and told him to bring it back. He paused for a moment and responded NO and ran into the living room. I caught him just as the plate spilled all over the floor. As I was cleaning it up I noticed Breanna arranging her chair with a can of pop on either side. She said.

"Im the king and those are the servants that go by my throne"

My son is practicing for a life of crime and Breanna is having delusions of grandeaur. Hmm I dont know which to worry more about.

Good News Gourd Recoverd

Ok not so good news. I found a piece of it on the driveway.

Bring back Jack

In the last few days we have had a shovel and a jacolantern taken from by our front step. I wonder if our tennant insurance covers gourds. Hmm
