Happy 50th Birthday Dad!

Yesterday was my dad's 50th birthday party! I can't believe it. He looks good for 50. Last night we had dinner over at my parents and gave him his gifts. My sister got him 50 Twinkies!! We were all cracking up.

Adam told Alex earlier that it was Papaw's birthday. Alex asked how old he was, and when Adam told him 50, Alex said, "Dag!!! Well at least he has a lot of life left! That kid cracks me up. My dad got a kick out of that too.

"Mom, I think we have a good surprise!"

Last month the boys asked how I would know if I was going to have a baby. So I told them about the pregnancy tests. They would ask me all the time, "Mommy, have you peed on that thing yet?", and I would tell them that we weren't having a baby yet.

Well this month I have been testing to see when I would ovulate. On Tuesday I got an positive Ovulation test, and I forgot and left it on the bathroom counter. Little Adam came into the living room, and said, "Mom, I think we have a good surprise". Almost like he wasn't sure if it was a good surprise or not. I asked him what it was, and he said, "that thing in there has two lines, so I think your pregnant". I didn't now what to say at first, I didn't want to explain Ovulating, so I told him that it is supposed to have a positive sign if I am pregnant.

So when we test, I am going to have to get a pregnancy test that give a positive sign, or he won't believe it.

Pumkins Vandals

This morning as I backed out of the garage, I looked over to the right to see if any cars were coming, and I saw something orange scattered all over the neighbors yard. I looked at my porch, and you guessed it, NO Pumpkins. Someone had taken our pumpkins and smashed them up. Our large pumpkin was carved to look like Spongebob, and they even smashed our fake pumpkin that you plug up!! Alex was devastated because they smashed his small pumpkin that he painted when we went camping. It was grown from Magic Pumpkin seeds. The only one that was left was Adam's painted pumpkin.

I can't really remember if I smashed any pumpkins growing up, I know I egged houses, and TP'ed houses. However i can guarantee that once I saw my son devastated, and crying because someone smashed his pumpkins, that I will never do it again.

Lesson learned, and I hope you learned from this too. Don't smash pumpkins, because you don't know who's child will be left devastated.

More than meets the eye!

We bought the Transformers DVD last night, and watched it with my parents. We went to see it in the Theater, and loved it, I would have to say it is my Favorite movie right now. So we couldn't wait for it to come out on DVD. The boys were so excited, all three of them :o) My mom normally doesn't like movies like that, but she decided she would watch it with us as a family, and she loved it. If you haven't seen it, go and get yours today!!

Noelani Update

She's put on 2 pounds in the past two weeks and has gotten considerably taller. She is doing really well in her training class, sit, down, stand, come all seemed to be very easy for her. One step at a time, her little puppy will power can only stretch so far! I've attached a couple photos, they bought the cats a new play gym thing over the weekend, so far they haven't so much as even sniffed at it but Noelani has found it quite exciting and they are having a hard time keeping her out of it. Enjoy!!!

Noelani Update!

Update from Joe on Noelani......

Sorry, I've been remiss in my puppy reporting. Noelani is doing fine, that is the laziest, most rotten hound I have ever seen! I love her to death. We've been working with her on sit and lay, she doesn't know the commands yet but she recognizes and responds to the hand signals immediately. Doesn't like her leash, all. Growls and barks at it, (she has a slight stubborn streak), when you put it on her she bites it and looks at you as if in warning that you're next if you try putting this on her again. Her "first day of school" is this Saturday, I think she may end up being the problem child of the class, just too many puppies in one room, she will be literally quivering with excitement! Do the other dogs avoid the grass when it has dew on it? This stubborn lil girl refuses to walk on the grass once it dews up, she'll pee on the driveway instead and then goes out of her way to walk around and use the paving stones and walk ways to get where she's going so she doesn't have to get her paws wet. Did I mention she sleeps a lot? Once she passes out, (literally, I've seen drunks that are easier to wake) you can pick her up, roll her over, I've even stuck food such as ham on her nose and lifted her cheeks to place it on her teeth and she still doesn't stir or even open a solitary eye to glare at you. Thank you so much for this little beauty!!
