When Mom's Away the Boys Will.....

Wear pink pajamas and go to McDonalds for a late night snack!!! Busted, Daddy!

OK, back up. Here's the story. I am tending my little sisters for the weekend while my parents are in Las Vegas. I took Jordan with me to spend the night, but Aaron was home and bored, so he called and offered to come get Jordan and bring him back home. I liked this plan, since that way I wouldn't have to share a room with the J-man. (Not that I don't like to share a room with him, but if I'm near him, he won't sleep. He wants to play.) So, I had dressed Jordan in Kari's jammies since I had not brought his along with us. This pleased Aaron so much, that he promised pictures.

This morning, when Aaron brought little pink boy back to me at my parents' house, Jordan was very excited about getting pop and fries and chicken. I wondered what he was talking about, but Aaron was outta there and gone before I could ask. Hmm. Then, when I came home later today, I saw the camera in the kitchen (not in it's usual spot) and took a look. Sure enough, there was the evidence on the "boy's night out."

This is not the first time Aaron's been caught, though. When we had a shitzu dog, Aaron once fed her some hamburger from our sloppy joes. People food was strictly forbidden, and he knew he was risking death by feeding it to her. So, when he heard me coming down the hall, toward the kitchen, he dropped a piece of the hamburger in the dog's water so she would dunk her face in to try to get it. (Baby's fur was white, and the sloppy joe was, well sloppy, and gave away her little treat.) I instantly saw what had happened. They both slept in the doghouse that night.

Nycole, Where Have You Been?

Wow, I don't like to admit that I can't do it all, and do it all now. But I'm slowly realizing that I am not super woman and juggling all the things I'm doing is taking a bit more out of me than I thought it would. So, I'll update you on all that's going on in my little life.

Jordan celebrated his third birthday last week. His cousin, Pyper turns one today, so we combined their birthday celebration. We had a birthday party with friends on Saturday, the 26th. It was an Elmo-themed party, and Jordan had a blast. His favorite part was blowing out the candles. On Sunday, we had family over and celebrated both Jordan and Pyper's birthdays.

School is also keeping me busy. I am now in week six (so a little more than half way there!) in my English class. We are writing formal reports, and I chose to write about living frugally. No surpise there, I'm sure. I'm enjoying the class, and have registered for a communications class. That one will be a correspondence course, rather than the online. I'll see which format I like better. After the English class, I'll probably take an introduction to Business Management, since this is a prerequisite for another HR class I want to take this summer.

I got some new added responsibilities at work. I now am doing some projects for the Human Resources department. I love it! Since this is what I am going to school for, it's a great opportunity to have some "hands on" experience."

I'm still making and selling my scrapbooks. In fact, this Friday and Saturday, I'll be a vendor at the "Oh Sweet Sadie!" show. I'm hoping for lots of shoppers, since I'll need to pay for my next class pretty soon.

I am also keeping busy with my calling in church. I am the enrichment leader, so I coordinate several activities each month with the committee. We have the annual RS Birthday dinner coming up in March, and it should be lots of fun.

I'l try to post more often. I'm sorry I've been so slow at updating. But I promise it's not because I am sitting in bed all day watching soap operas!
