Celebrity Sighting

Hero Husband has had a thing for cute perky brunette celebrities lately...Rachael Ray...Paige Davis. I don't tend to make too much of this because I fall into the category at least somewhat (sometimes cute sometimes perky always brunette). He called a few weeks ago to say that there was a show he wanted me to buy tickets to. We have had problems finding good shows that we want to see lately so I was excited. I pulled up the website, called the number and bought tickets for us to go to the Austin Cabaret Theatre to see Paige Davis perform. Good show, interesting venue, never done dinner theatre before. We had a good time and to top it all off Hero Husband had his loving wife snap this for him after it was all over.

#2 & Hero Husband Finish the Muddy Buddy



Muddy Buddy



Hero Husband signed up to do the Muddy Buddy a few months ago. Alas, my bum knees prevent me from being a good duathalon partner so he recruited #2 to compete with him. Basically the event is a trail running / mountain biking leap frog event where you and your buddy cover the same terrain and then switch the mode of transport (bike then run) at the end of each leg. #2 strategically analyzed the course and set it up so Hero Husband would have to ride the bike up the "hill of death". Sneaky one that #2. They had a great time and at the end of the race ran together through the obstacle course and then through the mud pit (hence the name muddy buddy). I have never seen a more collectively gross group of people than the competitors as they came out of the mud pit. The elite runners (first wave) actually had it pretty good and the spectators were a little disappointed that they were more wet and a little dirty. Once the mud really got churned up the results were much more entertaining. There was the occaisional costume... priest & nun who were there with their friends the firar & altar boy, hula girls (of course these were actually guys wearing full body hula suits), butterfiles and the crowd favorite (at least immediatly surrounding me) were Ace & Gary aka the ambiguously gay duo from SNL. Back Cracker and I (aka "The Wives") hung out with the kids while #2 & Hero Husband finished with big smiles beaming through the mud.

Super Son finished off the event for us with the Kids Mini-muddy buddy that Hero Husband ran with him through. He had a blast getting fithly (what kid wouldn't) and was so proud that he took his finisher medal, pictures of him and Hero Husband and his sweatband to school the next day to show his friends.

We stopped for lunch at the Nutty Brown Cafe with Mackenzie (from Super Son's school) and her Dad. Naps were had by all. It was a good day.

Sweet Bean



Our little beanie-weine has grown so much. She is crawling now and figuring out how to pull up. This of course comes with a multitude of bruises. Patience #2 ~ She will survive this and much worse! Remember the porch swing oh and there is the bat.

Happy Anniversary My Love



8 years...So much has changed and so much has stayed the same. Happy Anniversary. You look as handsome now as you did the day I married you. Oh, and thanks for the dimples. They look beautiful on our children. Love, Me

Miss Thing is stinky too

Just to be fair to sweet Super Son I must share that one of Miss Thing's favorite things is for me to take her shoes off and make a grand show of how stinky her feet are. She laughs and laughs at the faces we (usually me and Super Son) make and then when we move on to the next thing she holds her foot up and says "Tinky" over and over to keep the show going.

I promise we do bathe them both!

Super Son making experiments

Super Son loves to make "experiments" These are some pretty scary concotions usually involving some combination of sprinkles, herbs and spices~tasty

Miss Thing's First Pedicure



Stinky

Sunday evening Super Son and I were discussing when he should go upstairs and take a shower. I of course said now and he, well lets just say he had a different opinion.

Super Son: Mom, Can I skip it (shower)?
Me: No. You skipped it last night and you need a shower.
Super Son: Why?
Me: Because, God gave you your body and it is your job to take care of it. Leaving it dirty and stinky is not showing God how much you appreciate the gift of a healthy body. (yes, eye roll, I swear I said this)
Super Son: But I like to be stinky. Then my friends will think I am a skunk.
Me: (Laughing) Get in the shower skunk boy.
