From Pizza Pie boy to his nana

This is for Nana from her Pizza-Pie Boy. Unfortunately, the tantrum got cut off at the end.This is classic Ty behavior.

I've been tagged

So I've been tagged. Here goes:

10 years ago I was: a second year CalPoly student, doing the social thing in 3rd ward at church, working in the CalPoly bookstore, had met my husband after his mission, but we were not dating yet.

5 things on my list of things to do today:
Fold Laundry
Go to kids school to decorate for the upcoming talent show
pick kids up from school
Fix dinner and survive the constant tantrums of my almost two year old
reconvein to continue decorating for talent show

If I were a billionaire: I would buy Seascape in Mendocino, Fly everywhere and never drive a long trip, Pay off all of my families mortgages, (today I would hire a nanny to help me with the kids) Take a year to travel around the world with my family, Go on a mission with my family.

3 bad habits I have are: Always leaving a load of laundry in the washer, procrastinating, getting impatient

5 places I've lived
Reno, Nevada,
Sacramento, CA
Fairfield, CA
San Luis Obispo, CA
That's it!

Jobs I've had: ticket taker at Marine World, Temp at bio-tech company, babysitter extrordinaire, El Corral bookstore, companion for the elderly, Ink Dept. at wine label factory, Secretary at LDS Institute, bank teller and new accounts, Mother extordinaire.

Things most people don't know about me: I can get very nervous and scared in social situation, even if it doesn't show. I could sleep for 9 hours every night and still need a nap mid-day. I've always wanted to sing the national anthem at a sporting event.

I guess I have to tag some people:

"Nope. Not Me!"

Brian asked Ty this evening why he gives his mom so much grief. His response was, "Nope. Not Me!"
He's never said this before. We were able to get him to repeat himself and get it on video.

Signature moves and Time out

The middle picture is a shot of the mountains that run east of San Luis. This was taken a few weeks ago, and yes, that's snow on them thar hills.
The bottom is a picture of one of Ashlynn's cooking conquests. Grandma got her a kids cook book for Christmas and she loves it. We are trying to do a new recipe each week and she is doing quite well. This picture was a strawberry parfait. "Everybody likes parfait!"
Going up to bed the other night, Ashlynn turn around on the stairs and strikes a "rock star" pose. She does this by sticking both hands in the air with thumbs and pinkies out and her face in a mock scream (refer to the hot tub video from earlier). She tells us, "This is my signature move."
I asked her, "Where did you learn a term like 'Signature Move'?"
"Monsters, Inc." of course.
After laughing I said, "Ashlynn. You are so smart. I was not as smart as you when I was your age."
She then started dancing around and, half singing, she stated "That's because you didn't ask as many QUESTIONS!" With that she launched herself accidentally into the wall.

Briggs's Sunday school teacher told us a funny story about him from class. He was explaining the difference between doing something on accident and on purpose. He said if you do something on purpose you get a time out. If you do it on accident you don't. Then he explained, "That's why I always tell my mom it was an accident." Briggs is our little ninja.
