today i bought a bird necklace from a midget. jaymeson fixed our paddleboat and took the kids out on our mini-lake. don't call it a pond. it's a petite lake. in it resides at least one snapping turtle. don't rock the boat.

yesterday i went to the cardinals game and had a blast. i'm not going to lie to you, one of my favorite parts is yelling, "Go Pu!!!!". i also took my littlests to an apple orchard and picked many a jonagold. we fed some goats and were "chicken pirates" with baby chickens sitting on our shoulders. arrggghh! on a related note, last friday (not yesterday! sheesh) was "Talk Like a Pirate Day". we went to dinner with tami and scott that night and Jaymee said to me, "HEY! guess what today is???" and then at the same time we said,"ARRGGHHH! Talk like a pirate day!!" i love love. don't you just love love?

thursday I played with my mother-in-law and no kids all day.

in my kitchen right now are the following:
1. two dozen krispy kreme donuts
2. three dozen chocolate chip cookies
3. brownies from jaymeson's work
4. some sort of gooey ice cream banana fudge frozen bliss
5. fruit flies

my mom called me this smorning (you say smorning, too, don't you?) and told me she finished "The Book Thief". we talked about it and then i went out to my car and cried about it again. i'm a sucker for that book. it owns me. Zusak stretched and yanked my heart all different ways and puppets my tears anytime I think of it. i think I'm going to read it again now. not now, then - when I said "now" the first time.

you're up to date.

I do love love. You and your man were totally meant to be. There is much cuteness between the two of you. I love you both. THANK YOU for letting us come stay.

That. Was. Great. I like your blog so much. It seems like you like to talk about crazy stuff as much as I like to talk about crazy stuff.

You bought a bird necklace from a midget? Awesome.
Sounds like a kitchen I would love to visit. I think I was supposed to get Krispy Kremes on Friday but did not. Don't ask for Krispy Kremes as payment for photography. You'll just be more disappointed when you get stiffed. (Why oh why did they close down all the krispy kremes in phoenix??)
I wish I lived by you so I could have gone shopping and bought something from a midget, paddled around on your petite lake, picked apples, put chicks on my shoulder and talked like a pirate all day. And of course eaten everything in your kitchen.
I miss you.

Funny that you should enjoy a book called 'The Book Thief'. If it makes you cry, then you should let me have my book back, then we'll both feel better. I've been asking you nicely for the longest time.

Sorry. You can't have it. You'll have to go on feeling terrible forever. I want to read about teenage dragon fantasy every night. I guess we're at an impasse.

I read "The Book Thief" off of your recomendation. And I have to agree...........for sure one of the best books I've read. I have my mom reading it now.
