Abuelita's twin

So I was going through pictures on my phone and I found one of Lizzie and Abuelita (Jai's grandma) I noticed that they have the same bald spot (or cow-lick) on the top of their heads. I guess Lizzie is Abuelita's twin!!!


These are the biggest Smarties I have ever seen.

Recently at work I have been known to open a few packs of the small ones. Line them up by color. And then eat them. My co-workers think I'm nuts but it appeases me. So Colleen found these in the store one day and had to give them to me. They are right next to a regular size pack. I haven't found the courage to eat them yet.

So how come when you have a toddler wiggling and elbowing you, your other child inside you decides to kick and elbow you too? Don't they know it hurts when just one is doing it let alone both from each side? You'd think they planned it or something.

So I know quite a few of you have seen the movie Twilight and love it, or at least like it. I have decided to come out in the open and just say this:

That was the WORST movie adaptation of a book I have EVER seen.

The whole time I was watching it (during lunch times at work mind you) I kept thinking to myself I could have written this better, or I could have done those special effects myself and made it look better. I usually don't have those thoughts come to me cause I usually just don't care. If you can convince me of another even worse movie adaptation of a book, please do so. I have been trying for weeks to figure one out, but I really can't.

I couldn't help but laugh

So my mother in law had bought this collectors doll and her dog had eventually gotten a hold of it and messed it up.

Jai was trying to describe the massacred doll as the ugliest thing he had ever seen. I didn't believe him. How can a doll be that ugly?

So about a week later I was over at their house and Jai brings out this doll and I couldn't stop laughing. IT WAS THE UGLIEST THING I HAD EVER SEEN!!!!!

He had described it so accurately and it was so pathetic looking. It took me awhile to control myself.

When I showed my co-workers these pictures they were freaked out but I still just laugh my head off. Am I crazy?

Miracle of Miracles!!!

Jai decided one day to just tough out the tantrum of Lizzie and her big bed. He said the screaming lasted about 15 minutes and then there was quiet. When he went in to wake her up a few hours later he found she had fallen asleep on the floor. So we decided to brave out the night with the screaming and crying and miracle of miracles it only lasted two minutes. When we went to check on her an hour and a half later she had crawled back into bed and fell asleep. On the second night she just laid down after prayer and was perfectly content to lay there as we said good night. We have had very few problems since. A few times she doesn't sleep during her naps and somehow she manages to fall out of bed about once a week (its only 12 inches but it is on hard wood floors :(
She also managed to loose her Binky during a Sunday nap time. Come that night we looked everywhere for it (she helped us, it was soooo cute) but after 5 minutes we couldn't find it and she was okay with going to bed without it. She has not questioned it since (it has been found and tossed since then) It is amazing how fast they grow up.
