It's been busy busy since emma left. I kept putting things off while she was here and well now they are stacked up good. lol I have tons of school work i need to get done and we are having a yardsale this weekend. People are putting stuff in the sale so this is my garage at teh moment.. We went out and finally shot allan's gun that he got months ago. he tells me that it is not a gun.. it's a rifle. anyway we all rode out there before emma left. the girls watched out the back window while daddy shot. too oud and dangerous out there to get outta the car. i thought they were cute. Lilly squealed everytime she heard it go off.
We had a real relaxing night of fun the last night emma was here. Those little girls were wrastling. lol yeah i said wrastlin..They really had a good time with each other while she was here.
Did you guys hear? they are making the movie.. where the wild things are! it's a kids classic. It was my favorite book as a kid. I recently got it for our kids and i'm not quite sure why i loved it so much but the memories are fantastic so here is the trailor for the movie.
at the end it says it's too wild and left kids in tears. the tailor didn't look too bad to me but..?? who knows. i think i'm gonna have to go see it. ;-)
While we were at jds party emma's tooth became so loose. It has been loose since she got here which is over a month ago so it was time that it came out. It became so loose she could put her finger inbetween her two botom teeth and she could wiggle it with her tongue but she couldn't really keep it from flopping around because it was hanging on by a string. She had begged me earlier to tie a string to it and close the door. Well during this business i have found out that teeth apparently gross me out. lol. i never knew this but the thought of pulling it made me queasy. haha. Now i can scrub some teeth and i can pull out old people's dentures and hold them and clean them but something about little emma's tooth just gave me chills.. lol.. maybe cause it was a real tooth..? i don't know.So while we were at the party it got so loose all she could do was worry about it and hold her mouth. So my dear friend tasha said come here i'll pull it and first emma said no way but then tasha said you won't even feel it so emma decided to do it i guess. it was like a split second and it was out. emma didn't even feel it i think. So the tooth fairy had to visit our house. Emma had questions about it. YOu know me.. i made up some whooper story about a blue light that shines up into the sky so the tooth fairy knows which houses have the good teeth and oh it just went on and on lol. So emma did her part and put the tooth under there. I'm telling you this tiny tooth in a plastic bag grossed me out so allan had to go leave the money for her. We wrote her a note from the tooth fairy that said it was an excellent tooth and she needed to keep brushing so that she could have more teeth like this. That tooth fairy must be rich cause it left her 5 bucks.. lol i think i got quaters and maybe some dollars when i was a kid. actually i'm pretty sure i got whatever my parents had in their wallets lol so sometimes i made bank and sometimes it was a quarter.
On friday emma got invited to 2 birthday's. clara next door turned 6 a while back but her mom threw her a party this summer. We got her a present. It was a tattoo set. I thought clara woul have fun playing with that but i didn't think emma would go over and they would open it immediately and bot be covered in tattoos. There were something like 400 tattoos in it. i think half were on them lol.. We ended up going to jacob and j.d.'s birthday party. Jd was turning 3. This little boy loves lilly. He calls her " my lilly" and says he is going to marry her someday. I thought it was cute till at one point he was holding lilly down kissing her on the head. Boy was she telling him though. She was screaming her little head of at him and gonna smack him right on the nose.. lol. This is jd. So before we went over to this party i was teasing emma about going over to her boyfriends.. well she let me know that she only had one boyfriend and it was "the big one" she was talking about jacob the 10 year old. lol.. I asked her if he knew that she was his girlfriend ( and she had this little sly grin on her face) when she said " I'm gonna tell him!" Well just like lilly wants nothing to do with little JD, Jacob wants nothing to do with emma. I suppose there is quite a difference in 10 and 6 lol.. Here are some pictures of emma and of jacob So we had a wonderful time at jd's party and ended up staying till about 11pm.
We were traveling back to casper on allan's birthday so we didn't do much for it on his real birthday so we celebrated yesterday. We got dad a cake since we didn't have time to really make one with all the unpacking and stuff. We also took him to the hole in one competition. He made it on the top ten board but may hvae gotten knocked off later. He was only 2 feet 2 inches away. the top guy was about 4 inches away from the pin. Allan actually hit the pin but it bounced out of area. Then allan and i went to mom's new restaruant. She has a job there. They are all dressed up as flappers. Can you believe my husband has never really heard of flappers?? lol he asked me if that was a common term? haha. anyway here are some pictures from yesterday.
We went to the ave maria grotto, katie brought her barbe jeep over to junes, we went and saw the old house where the aunts and sandy grew up, we visited the cemetery, oh this list could go on forever. WE really had alot of fun and i'm so glad that i got to know all the aunts and uncles on allan's side so much better! ;-)
The kids loved tim and sue's house. i don't know why we waited till the last day to go out there but i'm so glad we made it there. Emma calls tim "grandpa tim" he bought her a little snoopy fishing pole and took her for a ride in the jeep to the store to buy crickets. oh she just loved him after that. The kids loved it and allan and i thought it was a little piece of heaven! so peaceful and quiet and oh i just can't discribe it.. perfect!!
Emma says this was her favorite thing about the whole trip. She had so much fun.. Mirya you sure do know how to throw a good little girl party. From cupcakes to pinata's, to trampolines, to bubbles, to poppers, to homemade icecream, to dress up costumes, to crafty photo albums that emma won't leave me alone about.. haha.. Here are some pictures. We got to visit more with ryan and maryann since they weren't as busy with the wedding. It was a good time.
