More Pyperisms

Around here we have funny moments like this one, or this. We call them "Pyperisms". Here is one, and another, and yet another. She is just full of them. She also has batteries that charge while she sleeps. I have often wondered where they are.

I guess now I know!

She was watching cartoons yesterday and hollered for me to "come see this!"

Pyper: "Mom, sewiosly, do you see dat guy?"

Mom: "Yes."

Pyper: "Wewl, he is HOT, I mean sewiosly!"

And, if that isn't enough for you.....David bought toilet paper the other day. He bought a different kind than I usually do. While she is sitting on the potty, Pyper yells "Hey mom, this new toylet paper is nice! It works weally good! We should buy dis kind awll da time!" Just in case you would like to try this awesome potty paper, it was Charmin brand.

Hannah's turning 12...again!!!

Since neither David or I think that we are old enough to have a "teenager", we have decided to celebrate Hannah's twelfth birthday again this year....
I am having a hard time to express today just what Hannah means to me.....I told you last year about how gorgeous she was, that hasn't changed. She still has the same bubbly personality, bright smile, and crazy sense of humor. She has many friends, (her phone is ALWAYS ringing) and treats everyone kindly. She still gives random hugs and kisses. They most often come at times when I really need them. I think about the only thing that has changed in the last year is that she finally passed me up.....yep, she's taller than me now.
She is loads of fun to be with. I even enjoy shopping with her, most days, and I HATE shopping! She is one of my best friends. We have many giggles together. I love that we can talk about anything--school, friends, boys, life, you name it. I love the way she takes care of her little sisters. She is always finding cute outfits for them to wear and fixing their hair. They thrive on all the attention she gives them!
Hannah, you are so beautiful! I am so very proud to be your mom, I love you!

My "Top 5 Playlist"

I was reading Kari's blog. She had posted her life's play list, songs that represent her. I read through it, thought it was a unique idea, and then sat up for most of last night thinking of what MY life's play list would be. Thanks Kari! I also had a hard time to narrow it down to just five, but I did. For your listening pleasure, here is my life's play list, in no particular order!

1. Small Town Saturday Night by Hal Ketchum-- This song reminds me of high school. You could never pay me enough money to repeat those years, but they were some of the best of my life. They were filled with many friends from many different beliefs and backgrounds. Some people came and went, some have come back into my life after a while, and some never left, but they have all had at least some portion of helping to shape the person I am today.

2. Somebody by Depeche Mode-- This song started out as the one that David and I would always dance with each other to at sock hops in high school. Then it evolved into "our song" after we started dating. It is still as fitting today as it was then! No other song sums up how we feel about each other, relationships, and us as this song. And it HAS to be this version with the train in the background! :)

3. Living On A Prayer by Bon Jovi-- yep, enough said! Besides that, it is an incredibly awesome song to rock out to on a good night of Rock Band! We have had many laughs as a family with that! And I agree with Kari, you can't have a Life Play list without Bon Jovi!

4. Eye of The Tiger by Survivor--It worked for Rocky, and it works for me too! Makes me feel like I can do anything I want to!

5. Sweet Emotion by Aerosmith-- Solely because a life without Aerosmith would just suck, and this is my favorite song of theirs. OK, so this is my favorite song ever!

So, what's on your playlist?

First Day Of School and New Babies!

It has been quite a day for us! Today was Pyper's first day of preschool. She was very excited for "Toosday" to get here so she could go to school. She jumped right out of bed this morning and got her new school clothes on!

I think that Seth and Bug were almost as excited as Pyper was for her to go to school! They had to make sure she went with them this morning. And they all needed a picture!
Today was just a little get to know you day, parents could come and we could stay as long as she wanted to. Well, we stayed from 8:45 am til they kicked us out cause school was over at 12:45! Pyper had a blast! She played with play-doh (forbidden at home), painted a picture (rarely done at home), played with play-doh, played "house", played with play-doh, played with blocks, and then helped clean up the play-doh at the end of school. She also told her dad that she "pwayed wis the pway-doh at school, but dat's awl I bemember!" I think she liked the play-doh! Then to celebrate her getting so big, we went to lunch. Just as we were finishing up, I got a text message from my sister in law Laura. She was pretty sure she was in labor. Did I mention that she was having twins?! So we hopped in the truck and took off to get her little boy Rand to come play at our house. And GUESS WHAT?!? At about 6:30 this evening I got a brand new niece and a brand new nephew! They were 6 pounds 1 ounce and 5 pounds 7 ounces respectively. For 6 weeks early, they are monsters! So I would like to introduce you to.... Big brother Jonathan...

and little sister Aviendha! Aren't they cute? They are doing well, but are just needing a little help to figure out the breathing thing. I can't wait to love them! Congrats Loopy and Dustin, you did good!!!
