I'll have the penguin...

Jennah and I were talking today about her field trip tomorrow to Sea World:

Me: "Hey, if you see the sea lion tomorrow, tell him I said hello."
Jennah: "You actually LIKE sea lions?"
Me: "Well yeah. Don't you?"
Jennah: "Kind of, sort of, but I don't like them because...well...don't you know that sea lions eat penguins."
Me: "Is that why you don't like them?"
Jennah: "Yes."
Me: "Well, I like you and you eat chickens, cows and pigs."
Jennah: "Well, that's different and besides, that's not real funny."

.. which brings us to the question - Why don't people eat penguins? You never see penguin on a menu.

An unwanted visitor...

I'm not too fond of frogs and toads just because they look gross but this one really looks bad. He visited us while we were on vacation last month. Where did I find him you ask? Well, he was in my toilet! Yep that's right! What a nice surprise to lift the lid to! UGH! I woke Mike up to let him know he had to get rid of the frog. I'm not sure how he got him out but he did so we took a picture of it. GROSS! Look how huge he is for a tree frog! Yes, I'm now doing the "bowl check" before I do my business again!

My Reasons...

Today I get to celebrate Mother's Day for many reasons:

1. My Mom - for without her, there would be no me! She's also the one who taught me how to be a good mother.

2. My Mother-in-Law - for without her, I would not have my wonderful husband Mike.

3. My wonderful husband Mike - for without him, it would not have been possible for us to have our two beautiful children.

4. My wonderful girls, Jennah and Kaylee - without them, I would not have this opportunity to celebrate!

To all the people who have helped me become the mother I am: Thanks!

Jennah and Kaylee - way back then...

and now!
