Memory Tag!

MEMORIES!

Tag!
Here's the drill (This one's kind of interesting...)

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.

If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

She Did It!

Well, she did it! Sophie use to be so afraid of the swing, in fact she would fuss and arch her back and scream! While Haley would just pull faces at her that would say "what are you crazy? Its a swing!" So, every time we would go to the the park I would make her sit in the swing, motionless for a few minutes. And then.... one day.... she didn't cry. So, I pushed her a little and she started to say in a shaky scared tone, "It's fun? It's fun, Momma?" And I'd tell her "Yes, its fun!" She'd cry after a while, but it was still a HUGE break through for her!
So, last Sunday Todd put her in the swing and let her sit there for a minute and then the EVIL Abigayle came and pushed her! We waited for her to cry, but there was no cry! YEA! But, we still yelled at poor Abigayle like she was beating her with a stick! Ok, well we thought Sophie was going to regress! But, to our surprise and hers....... she's still ALIVE! (Sophie I mean! Abigayle's doing fine too!)

She loves to swing now! Well, for a few minutes at a time anyway!
Who knew the swing would be such a hard trial to over come!?

If there is anything Haley can do, its Bake with Momma! And at the top of her list is Banana Bread! She loves to make it and she knows the recipe by heart! She counts the bananas for me and gets the flour, sugar, eggs, baking soda, vanilla, hand mixer, rubber spatula, ladle, pam, and my loaf pans out! She's one smart cookie..... or "nana bread"! Her favorite thing is to crack the eggs all by herself! And she's good too. Hayden has tried and he gets shell in the batter. So, Haley says "No Hayden... like this!" This time though she was really cute! She said "Dad sure will be proud of me to make the "nana bread"!" She just loves her Dad and she cries everyday when he leaves. It breaks her heart! Personally I don't see what the big deal is! ok.... he's pretty great! Anyway, he came home and told her it was the best "nana bread" ever. Her face lit up and she explained the whole process that she went through just for his "nana bread". We usually make a ton so if you want some ....... just ask.

Dragon magic or Fairy magic?


We love Barns and Noble! And so what else is new right?! Ok, I admit it... we live there! My kids all love it, but especially my little Haley Bella Boo! She loves the "book store"! And the other day when we were leaving, I told her she could have magic chocolate if she was good. Well, she thinks that magic chocolate is something that can only be bought at Borders book store. Well, we don't live by Borders any more so, I've been trying to convince her that they sell magic chocolate at Barns and Noble as well...... I promise! (By the way, she thinks that the chocolate from Borders makes her uncontrollably happy! And though a placebo it may be, it works!) So, as we placed our tall tower of books on the counter to make our purchases, the clerk walked back toward the register. Loading up the question with "hint, hint". I asked the man if this chocolate here, (I pointed with my wide eyes) was magical! He obviously got the hint because he said catching my hint, "Why yes it is!". And at that moment, he somehow threw tons of sparkling rainbow confetti all around Haley and the chocolate! If I had a camera..... her face was priceless! she was in total awe! So, we all wow-ed and ooo-ed! She finally picked the dragon magic chocolate! And she's been talking about getting more ever since! It was a pretty cool day! Just what she needed!
Oh! And she was as strong as a dragon for hours!
