guitar hero

We love this game so much and we can't stop playing it. It is addicting and the kids are trying so hard to be able to do it. Megan practiced for 4 days and finally got the first song all the way through on easy and now she can do about 5 songs. Now Ethan is trying to learn and he is doing quite a good job. Here are some pics and video if I can get it on here....

kids are so cute

I was talking to Ethan the other night and I told him he was getting so big. I said he used to be such a tiny little baby. He thought that was funny. Then I told him he used to be in my tummy and he was very little and grew and grew until he was big enough to be born. He looked at me and asked, "Mom, did you eat me?" I couldn't stop laughing. It was too cute!

Walmart Weirdos

Story 1

It seems like everytime I go to Walmart lately, I have a bad experience. A few weeks ago I had a cart full of groceries and I was walking down the front of the store looking for the shortest checkout line, with all 3 kids I might add. I found one, there were only 2 people in line so I got in behind them. The man finished checking out and the lady moved forward and there was room for me to start putting my groceries on the thing. I hear her say really loud, "HOLY S#!%" and I looked at her all crazy. She was all ticked off that the guy in front of her had all these groceries and didn't buy any tobacco. You know, some Walmarts have the one ailse you can buy tobacco. Well, I was in that line. She went on and on how she hated people who went in that lane and didn't buy tobacco. I was getting madder and madder. First she swears in front of my kids and then she hates me! LOL When she finally goes to pay, she gets out 3 gift cards and makes the cashier check the balance on them all. It took like 10 minutes for her just to pay. I was trying to think of anything witty to say to her, but I couldn't. I thought of a lot in the car though LOL!

Story 2
I was walking up to Walmart with my 3 kids. I was holding Ethan's hand and Megan was holding Christian's hand. We were in the MIDDLE of the pedestrian crossing in front of the store when this truck speeds by missing us by a couple of feet. OMG! I threw my arms up at the stupid lady and stared her down. She stared back. I could not believe she did that. She totally could have hit Christian if he decided to jerk away from Megan and run up ahead of us like he has done in the past. I was SOOOO mad!

Story 3
This happened the same day as story 2. I only needed a couple things so it was a quick trip. I was excited to use the 20 items or less lane which I hardly ever get to do. The cashier was halfway done checking my stuff out. There were 2 people behind me with 10-20 items in their carts. This lady walks up to my cashier and looks at her. The cashier says, can I help you. The lady says, "I thought this was the fast checkout lane." and she looks at my stuff. I looked at her and I said very snottylike "Ya, it is, it's TWENTY items or less" and I pointed to the sign. She walked off kinda pissy. I looked at my receipt and it said at the bottom, 16 items. That (*&^#@$&!!!! In your face lady, get some patience!

Story 4
This happened last night. It is the FUNNIEST one, but still falls under walmart weirdos. I was looking at some wii games, just looking, and Ethan was playing the sample DS game sitting there. Christian was a little on edge. If any of you know Chrisitan or have heard me talk about him, you know he can let off blood-curdling screams for no real reason or if the slightest thing goes wrong. Very annoying. But anyway, all of a sudden he screams at the top of his lungs. Why? because Ethan touched the cart. I told him to hush. Out of no where this guy bolts over to me from another ailse all concerned and asked if everything is ok because it sounded like someone got hurt real bad. I am thinking, aw what a thoughtful guy, that could have been helpful if something really was wrong. I told him, no, nothing was wrong, my 2 year old often screams when something doesn't go his way. He looked aggitated. Then he said, well, I have a 4 year old and he has never screamed like that. Then he said, You need to tell him that Santa doesn't bring toys to screamers. He walked off all pissy. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL What the crap??? First of all it isn't Christmas anymore and I don't think any kid would care about that right now and second of all, he is freakin 2, he doen't even know who the crap Santa is! I was laughing so hard inside my head about that. What a dork!

Wow, it has been a long time since I wrote a blog. It is hard to keep up with this and myspace. I think I like myspace better. Amy, come back! Anyway, I wanted to post some pictures of our fun Christmas. We went to my mom's a few days before Christmas and celebrated with everyone. We saw my aunt and her family. Ethan got to help shoot a gun for the first time. It was so neat. I swore I would never let my kids play with guns, toy or real ones, but Ethan started making guns with legos and I changed my mind. Jared begs me all the time to let him get a gun, but I will not allow a real gun in my house. No way. I am terrified of them. While my uncle, Jared and Ethan were outside shooting the gun, us girls were inside. We heard a shot and then Ethan start crying like crazy. My stomach flipped. I thought for half a second that Ethan was shot. The shell hit him in the eye when it ejected from the gun. Phew! We went to see my Dad and sister, too. That was ok. Then we were at my mom's and my Nanny and Papa were there, too. We had a yummy dinner together and then opened presents. It was fun. The next day was awesome. We went to see my best friend from 5th grade, Alexa, and her new baby. I think that was the best part. We hadn't seen eachother in 6 years. We can't let it go that long ever again. I wish we lived closer. For new year's eve we went to my friend heather's house. it was awesome. I finally got to play guitar hero. It really is the funnest game i have ever played. We played pictionary and catchprase, too. We tried the whole way back home to find guitar hero for wii, but no one had it. I called ever store in Tyler to try to find it. No one had it. I finally ordered it. It hasn't shipped yet, but it is supposed to get here by Thursday. We shall see. I don't know if anyone even reads this. Am I wasting my time? Probably LOL!
