Friday Night Fun

I am hosting a monthly card club at my house tonight. It is so fun to just sit around and chat. Almost everyone in the club is from my old neighborhood in Eagle Mountain, it makes me miss it. But then we get to talk about everyone who still lives there (or didn't come!), most of whom I don't know, but that doesn't stop me! Here is my card for tonight's get-together:

Also made Poppy Seed Cake for dessert, YUMMY!!!

I am planning on a fun Friday night, hope you are too!

putting up new recipes on the recipe blog,
thinking about doing $20 for 20 projects (all you scrapbookers check it out!),
trying not to bust open the first bag of cherry ju-ju hearts I have bought,
and seriously enjoying listening to this.

Twilight on DVD

*Turns out we can trust Kenzie, it will be released March 21st!*


***UPDATE*** My good friend & cousin Kenzie says it's out on March 21, however that's a Saturday and new releases usually come out on Tuesday, so I don't know if we can trust her. Also I won't be pre-ordering the DVD, I do think that is silly to pay for it early and not get it until days after it comes out. I will just walk into Wal-Mart or Target and pick it up that day. That's how I roll.

911, What's Your Emergency?

As I looked out my front door and saw an officer of the law standing on my porch, my first thought was that our dog had got out. Do officer's bring your dog back? I don't know. My second thought was that they were coming to take either me or Molly away. (Was she really screaming that loud?) I wouldn't let her have ANOTHER fruit snack and she was screaming and so she went to bed. Before she went to bed we had a clean-up-the-living-room-I-can't-function-with-all-these-toys-out-here party (I love those parties!) and we ignored the phone because it was important that the toys be cleaned up before the baby took her nap. Apparently, the phone call was important, because it was the police station calling us back. The officer on my porch was standing there because someone at our house called 911. This is the first time in my life I can say without a doubt IT WASN'T ME! While I am grateful that the nice officer was doing his job and checking on us, I was embarrassed to death to give out my FULL NAME AND BIRTH DATE (I'm sure to run through the system, like I'm a criminal or frequent 911 caller). Lessons learned today: Give the kid another dang fruit snack and put the phones out of her reach.

18 months

The age all mormon mothers look forward to, 18 months is a milestone. The Nursery milestone! I have been prepping Molly for the past few days about going to her nursery class. How fun her class will be, play with toys, see friends, snacks, yea nursery. I can't tell if she will go without a look back or scream like she just saw Santa. Lucky for me, this is not my problem. I recently acquired a calling that has left Josh taking our little princess with him for the last two hours of church. Good luck babe!
We are loving Molly right now, she is a funny kid. Sometimes when she does things I can't believe she is only a year and a half. She seems older some days. Not that I want her to be, it goes too fast. Right now her favorite thing in the world is Dora. She watches the show, reads her Dora books and plays with her tub toys. She knows each of the characters names and even says "Awww man" just like Swiper the Fox. Josh has got her saying "Awww nuts" as well, it's pretty funny. She is a jabber jaws and talks all the time.
Funny things she says and does:
Go away.
Stop it.
I know it.
Where's Molly? (with a blanket over her head)
I got you.
Dances like nobody's watching.
Sings Once there was a snowman, ABC's and itsy bitsy spider. (with actions)
Rock a bye's her babies.
Tells her babies "don't cry".
Loves Yo Gabba Gabba, Diego, and Elmo. Knows everyones names.
Points to all our pictures naming each person in them.
Loves to eat "emmies" (M&M's)
Loves to have her hair done and get a pretty put in it. (Josh is better at this than me, no lie)
Recently discovered Princesses, thanks Grandma Harris.

We love you baby!

*Just a note, she did GREAT!!! She's like her mother in that she adjusts well to new situations.

My Wish for You in 2009!

May peace break into your house and may thieves come to steal your debts. May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet of money. May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips! May your clothes smell of success like smoking tires, and may happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy. May the problems you had forget your home address! In simple words ............
May 2009 be the best year of your life!!!
