Invisible Baseball

Our neighbor is a very talented young girl (who is also our babysitter). She invited Cierra and Jonah to be in a short movie she did. They had a blast. They keep asking when they are going to do it again.
Check it out!

Cierra, the song writer

My little girl has a lot of feelings. All I can say is that she definitely is a girl. She writes songs to perform for the family and sings them so earnestly. I did the same thing when I was younger. I would write songs and dream of performing on the radio. Yeah...never happened. However I have high hopes for my little angel...if you have ever heard her sing you know she has a beautiful voice. I asked her if it was ok if I shared a couple of her original songs on our blog and she assured me that she did not mind. In fact she made sure to leave her notebook out by my lappy so I knew where they were. Now if I hear either of these on the radio we are going to be real mad! ;)

No Love No Key, No Key No Love
by Cierra Elizabeth Lamont

You kicked me out of your heart. Let me back in.
Babe I tried with all of my heart. I'm missin you
Open the door or make a bridge
Make a rainbow bridge
Make a wooden bridge
Just make a bridge

No love, no key, no key no love
Babe tonight
Nooooooooooo key no love
Nooooooooooo love no key

That's how it goes tonight
If you let me in I'll give you my heart to keep
If you don't break it like I did

Repeat chorus

Give me one more chance.
Lovin you is like a joke to you
Which puts me in hurt tonight
You hurt everyone you date babe


Repeat Chorus

So Much Love
By Cierra Elizabeth Lamont

So I was in the park
You saw me
I saw you
It was crazy
You asked me out
It was love at first sight
Soooooooo much love
Tooooooo much love
Sooooooo much love
It was love.

Now how sweet are those?? That is a lot of emotion to come from such a little girl. Of course she has the Disney channel and all those teenage girls singing love songs to help fuel her artistic fire. She is so full of hope and dreams. I love her with all my heart.

A new chapter

I am officially a college student(again). I am so excited, but I think I am even more scared. This is one of those things that other people do, that I envy and will do one day when I have the time. It has felt like an out of body experience while I have been applying, gathering papers and waiting for admission into the school. And now I have just read my first chapter for my Philosophy class. It feels so good!
However while I was reading, Tyler came in for this, and Landon came in for that, and the laundry was buzzing and I smell the nasty bathroom that I need to clean and I know I need to make a shopping list, and I know I need to do "mommy school" with the boys, and I am looking at my spin bike knowing I need to exercise at some point today, and I really hate blow drying my hair because it takes forever, and I still need to make my bed, and I still need to do my reading for my research class and Psychology class....AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
Deep breaths!! I think it is time for me to relax and prioritize. I need to do this, and I want to do this. Everything is a learning process and I am about to get schooled!! Haha!
So maybe I won't have a spic and span house. And maybe I won't always be dressed...but hopefully I will be able to juggle all that I need to do. Super Woman...can I borrow your cape????

He's self sufficient.

Well, I guess I can go ahead and pat myself on the back. I have raised a very self sufficient little three year old. I caught Landon making himself a PB&J TWO times today.
The first time I walked in the kitchen and he was rinsing his plastic knife off in the sink...he even cleans up after himself. He had also attempted to make himself a glass of chocolate milk..but we were out of milk. Bummer. It seems he decided to add some Nesquik to some water. Yum!

And about five minutes ago I caught him making his second PB&J. This time with a real knife. He apologized. Seriously? The boy must be real hungry.

Really Landon? I am very capable of making you a need only ask. Don't grow up too fast!

Mele kalikimaka

Ok, not really Merry Christmas...just wanted to say that.
When the kids came home from their dad's for the summer we had a welcome home luau. Other than the decor and the Hawaiian haystacks we ate, not much else was luau-ish. I think I will plan better next time. But, the kids had fun. And we were together!!

Thanks to the 99 cent store here we were sporting all sorts of Hawaiian stuff. Love that inflatable pineapple! Classy!

Way awesome goblets with Hawaiian Punch. Clever I know. And thanks Aunt Kathy for the cute drink umbrellas!

A Hawaiian Transformer at my luau...yep!

The fam!! So under my lei is a flowered bra. Cierra and I both had one. And under my flowered bra is my shirt that says, "World's Coolest Mom". I think that speaks for itself. ;)

We MUST be crazy!

That's a dog...laying on MY couch! Aaaaaaaaaaaaah!
We finally did it..we got a dog. I have put if off as long as my family would let me. I haven't been excited because I am not stupid. I know that having a dog is a lot of work, especially a puppy.
She has not let me down...she is a lot of work. However she is cute and I know the kids will LOVE her!
So welcome to the family Zarah! (The "ar" is prounounced like the pirate AAARRRR!)
