A Little Bit of This and That

I feel like the days of my little girls are passing by too quickly and some of the funniest things that they do aren't getting documented so here are a few pictures of my little red head's purses that get drug from home to Walmart and all around the bathroom floor at the mall. Love bug even sleeps with the purse right next to her. I thought that some of the things in these purses were things that I can't figure out why I don't have them in my purse because they are things you can't live without, right? hahaha....I love my Maya!

I'm back....

Okay. Wow it has been since...oops March since my last post. Oh sorry. I found facebook and ebay to take up a lot of my online time. No excuses though, right?

Matt, the kids and I just got back from a trip to my parents place in AZ. They have 41 acres of ranch property there. I call it a bed and breakfast because we go and my mom plans and cooks 3 amazing meals everyday we are there. It's like being on a cruise but better food. The kids just played in the dirt, sand and we rode them around on the 4 wheelers. It was fun but there is no place like home. I LOVE MY OWN BED!!!

On our way home, we were driving and could hear a little scratching noise in the dash board but didn't think much of it until a freaking squirrel, pop gut, whatever the crap they are called took a nibble at my toes. Oh crap!!! You haven't seen me fly to the back seat quicker then I did when I saw that little critter at my feet. To top it all off...we were in a construction zone with no way to pull over so the dumb gut popper, whatever he's called, ran up on the dash and I haven't found him yet. I haven't smelt any dead animals yet coming from the old pathfinder, but still trying to figure out how he got in my freaking car. Any suggestions???

As Easy as 1-2-3 Chocolate Chip Cookies

It seems as though everyone else has better tasting chocolate chip cookies then me. Mine always turn out like pancakes with little lumps of chocolate chips here and there. I hate it. So for years now, every time I see a chocolate chip cookie I like, I ask how they make it. Here are my 3 tips that I have gathered from many different domestic bakers that have helped me to perfect the old fashioned chocolate chip cookie recipe.

1. Use real butter, not margarine - margarine melts at a lower temperature. This is why my little boogers would flatten like pancakes.

2. Use more white sugar then brown - not too sure why on this one!

3. Add more flour then the recipe calls for - This is cause the chocolate chips cookies to keep a round and raised look.

California in February!

I thought we would have a warm trip to California...well warmer then what I was getting here in Utah and that wasn't the case. Besides the cold weather, sick kids and a little soreness from the dodge ball game the Friday night we got there, we still had a great time.

158 Years Ago...

My dad sent this to me and I thought since I am a Californian that moved to Utah 10 years ago, it was worth posting on my blog.

158 years ago...

Do you know what happened this week back in 1850,

158 years ago?

California became a state.
The State had no electricity.
The State had no money.
Almost everyone spoke Spanish.
There were gunfights in the streets.
So basically, it was just like California today; except the
women had real breasts and the men didn't hold hands.

What is the Grossest Thing your Kids Have Tried?

When I was little, my family would call my sister and I the "Queens of Gross." We thought everything was gross and now that we have kids of our own, I have kids that test my ever so popular "Queen of Gross" name.

Yesterday, I went with a friend to the local jumping place with the kids. Of course the trampolines get old after a bit and the kids tend to wander into places they shouldn't go. Maya decided to try the bathroom out. I followed her in there not seconds after to find she had just taken the lovely green tampon applicator out of the nasty toilet trash. the mouth it went. GROSS. Okay, so I made this big scream and pretty much barfed in my mouth and am still barfing right now, flicked the NASTY green lollipop tampon applicator on the floor and washed her mouth out until she squirmed out of my arms screaming.

I guess things are working as normal today with her but that image is not leaving my mind. What was the GROSSEST thing that your kids have sampled?
