This morning's message comes to you straight from the bathroom...where I feel like I've been planted for the past 48 hours. We are in full-blown potty training mode with Autum. And so far, we are 0-4,656 in her actually going in the potty. She tells me she has to go potty, we hurry in to the bathroom...and she either pees her pants while I'm trying to get her pants down...or she holds it until right after I take her off the pot. Ohhh! So here we are...singing, dancing, bribing, clapping, talking...and now typing...all in hopes she actually potty's in the toilet today...instead of just making the sounds effects with her mouth--clapping her hands--and then saying she's all done and wants to wash her hands. Followed up with asking for a candy cane...She SO doesn't get this bribe thing yet. :)
Then the next day...he and his buddy Mr. Snowman decided to roast marshmallows over my new candle. You will notice there are only 2 marshmallows left for them to roast. The interesting thing about this is...there were about 5 marshmallows for Mr. Boots and Mr. Snowman to roast that morning...and by the end of the day NO ONE knew what happened to the other ones...Leah said Mr. Boots must have eaten them. I just replied that Santa will find out who really ate them...
And after that the rest of the evening went TERRIBLE. We had a late night Friday night, following a crazy, busy week. And it all came snowballing down on us Saturday afternoon. It got so bad that Mr. Boots left Leah a note from Santa, Sunday morning when she awoke. Mr. Boots hung out on the TV and left a note and the book open to the page about Santa being sad when the kids are naughty...she wasn't too happy about the idea and wrote Santa a note back...but I convinced her it probably wasn't a good idea to write Santa mean notes...so we tore it up. :)
In other news...Jerad shot another 2 deer. Our freezer will be full again.! Yippee!
|This deer was shot in Kansas along with a doe I didn't get a picture of, this past weekend.|
|This one he shot in Oklahoma a couple of weeks ago.|
