Oh my gosh!

You will never believe what happened last night!
Me and Mike were talking together in our room when we heard Kaitlyn say something that sounded a little off. Mike jumped up to see what was the matter.... "There's a mouse in the house!" WHAT I get up to see what the matter was, Just then the moused runs under the door right towards me!!!
The only thing I am thinking about is not letting this thing touch my bare feet. Oh my gosh I started screaming! I am screaming Kaitlyn is screaming and Mike is running around with a broom in his hand freaking out on us to help him... I could not come out of the room I was just standing on my bed laughing.... laughing hysterically. I can hear Mike in the other room telling Kaitlyn I just need you to open the door for me. She was FREAKED instead of that she started running towards the mouse trips over the boom and hurts her foot!! I think by this time mike was pretty fusterated with us, I felt bad knowing I need to come and try to help this situation. I carefully come out of the bed room get some shoes on and tell everyone we need to calm down and work together to get this thing out.
Before long we cought it in a bowl and Mike let it go in the yard.
We sat and laughed for a good hour about the whole thing..
How did it get in there you must be wondering?
My cat honey brought it home for us... Kailtyn let her in not knowing tha it was still in her mouth. She thought she could just yelll at Honey to let it go and she would listen...
We are starting to have a problem with this every couple of days she is bringing something home. I think I may get her a bell to ware around her neck to scare everything away.

Interesting facts to know.

I got this in an email and I just wanted to share, I really like some of the ideas.


Peel a banana from the bottom and you won't have to
pick the little 'stringy things' off of it. That's how the primates do it.

Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store.
If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.

Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil.
It will stay fresh much longer and not mold!

Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating.
Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.

Add a teaspoon of water when frying ground beef.
It will help pull the grease away from the meat while cooking.

To really make scrambled eggs or omelets rich add a couple of spoonfuls of sour cream, cream cheese, or heavy cream in and then beat them up.

For a cool brownie treat, make brownies as directed. Melt Andes mints in double broiler and pour over warm brownies. Let set for a wonderful minty frosting.

Add garlic immediately to a recipe if you want a light taste of garlic and at the end of the recipe if your want a stronger taste of garlic.

Leftover snickers bars from Halloween make a delicious dessert. Simply chop them up with the food chopper. Peel, core and slice a few apples. Place them in a baking dish and sprinkle the chopped candy bars over the apples. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes!!! Serve alone or with vanilla ice cream. Yummm!

Reheat Pizza
Heat up leftover pizza in a nonstick skillet on top of the stove, set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the cooking channel and it really works.

Easy Deviled Eggs
Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal, mash till they are all broken up. Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up mixing thoroughly, cut the tip of the baggy, squeeze mixture into egg. Just throw bag away when done easy clean up.

Expanding Frosting
When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You get to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount. You also eat less sugar and calories per serving.

Reheating refrigerated bread
To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place them in
a microwave with a cup of water. The increased moisture will keep the food
moist and help it reheat faster.

Newspaper weeds away
Start putting in your plants, work the nutrients in your soil. Wet newspapers, put layers around the plants overlapping as you go cover with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic they will not get through wet newspapers.

Broken Glass
Use a wet cotton ball or Q-tip to pick up the small shards of glass you can't see easily.

No More Mosquitoes
Place a dryer sheet in your pocket. It will keep the mosquitoes away.

Squirrel Away!
To keep squirrels from eating your plants, sprinkle your plants with cayenne pepper. The cayenne pepper doesn't hurt the plant and the squirrels won't come near it.

Flexible vacuum

To get something out of a heat register or under the fridge add an empty paper towel roll or empty gift wrap roll to your vacuum. It can be bent or flattened to get in narrow openings.

Reducing Static Cling
Pin a small safety pin to the seam of your slip and you will not have a clingy skirt or dress. Same thing works with slacks that cling when wearing panty hose. Place pin in seam of slacks and ... ta da! ... static is gone...

Measuring Cups
Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup, fill with hot water.
Dump out the hot water, but don't dry cup. Next, add your ingredient, such
as peanut butter, and watch how easily it comes right out.

Foggy Windshield?
Hate foggy windshields? Buy a chalkboard eraser and keep it in the glove box of
your car When the windows fog, rub with the eraser! Works better than a cloth!

Reopening envelope
If you seal an envelope and then realize you forgot to include something inside,
just place your sealed envelope in the freezer for an hour or two. Viola! It unseals easily.

Use your hair conditioner to shave your legs. It's cheaper than shaving cream and leaves your legs really smooth. It's also a great way to use up the conditioner you bought but didn't like when you tried it in your hair.

Goodbye Fruit Flies
To get rid of pesky fruit flies, take a small glass, fill it 1/2' with Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 drops of dish washing liquid; mix well. You will find those flies drawn to the cup and gone forever!

Get Rid of Ants
Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it 'home,' can't digest it so it kills them. It may take a week or so, especially if it rains, but it works and you don't have the worry about pets or small children being harmed!

The heating unit went out on my dryer! The gentleman that fixes things around the house for us told us that he wanted to show us something and he went over to the dryer and pulled out the lint filter. It was clean. (I always clean the lint from the filter after every load clothes.) He told us that he wanted to show us something; he took the filter over to the sink and ran hot water over it. The lint filter is made of a mesh material ... I'm sure you know what your dryer's lint filter looks like. Well ... the hot water just sat on top of the mesh! It didn't go through it at all! He told us that dryer sheets cause a film over that mesh that's what burns out the heating unit. You can't SEE the film, but it's there. It's what is in the dryer sheets to make your clothes soft and static free ... that nice fragrance too. You know how they can feel waxy when you take them out of the box .. well this stuff builds up on your clothes and on your lint screen. This is also what causes dryer units to potentially burn your house down with it! He said the best way to keep your dryer working for a very long time (and to keep your electric bill lower) is to take that filter out and wash it with
hot soapy water and an old toothbrush (or other brush) at least every six months. He said that makes the life of the dryer at least twice as long! How about that!?! Learn something new everyday! I certainly didn't know dryer sheets would do that. So, I thought I'd share!

"Well on the way home Me and Autumn give the grass a little good water."

"Because were SAVING THE WORLD, Mama..."

Barbie and the Diamond Princess

Twice a year a new Barbie movie comes out, and everything along with it.
My daughter has been lucky enough to get it every time it comes out, Even some how manages to get the barbies to go along with it.

Lucky enough for me one of the times is right before her birthday.
This year one of my closest friends bought her all of it. And I swear with in 3 hours of opening it the dress didn't work anymore.... How disappointing is that.

Dispite it all this was her favorite present off them all.

I hear there is a 3rd one coming out this yearBarbie Christmas Carol. Looks like she will be earning this one :)

My baby turned 8 today:)

Last night we had a little Birthday Party for her and my dad's house. She loved it :)

Just a little scary #2

You would of hoped that I had enough scare for the day...
While eating dinner tonight the hospital called me back and said that blood they took from me earlier in the day showed that my placenta was bleeding. And since I am O- I need to have this Rogam shot.

Crap I thought, I hope it is not bad. My daughter wanted to come with so I let my honey stay home this time so that he did not sit there and worry. (I think that he worries more then I do.) This time while they were trying to put the baby on the monitor they couldn't find the heart beat!!! Oh my gosh I wanted to cry in fear! They say that is normal at ny stage, But still.

K so in the end nothing bad came of it. My daughter got her laugh seeing me get a shot in my butt. I had time to sit and yack on the phone something I never do anymore. And I got a weekend off out of the deal...

Just a little scary...

Okay so this morning I was doing some cleaning. As I was mopping the floor thinking about how I needed to talk to this certain some body when all of a sudden they called me! (Crazy huh?) Well since that phone doesn't work so good I went to get the phone from the other room.

Just then I slipped and fell really hard! Harder then I have probably fell in my adult hood. Smacked my head and all... I FREAKED! Called the doctor, They had me come in. By the time I had even left to go there I had already felt the baby move so I knew he was still okay. But because I worry so much I still went in.

When I go there they had me go to the hospital right away. See I have O - blood tpe so they needed to make sure that there was no beading.. They were like no biggy just but the baby on the monitor for awhile and then you can go.

K so we get there and after awhile they came in and asked me if I was cramping, No none at all. They said "Well you are, So you are going to have to stay here for awhile" I was so scared. I am only 6 months pregnant, This baby needs to stay in there :)

After awhile still cramping but nothing more. They let me go home. Everything seems to be fine. My neck is extremely sore though. I can't move it like I should.

Moral of the story is that I need to learn not to be SUPER WOMEN all the time and slow down. Ever since I found out that I was pregnant I feel like everything needs to get done NOW!! And yet still it is not good enough.

Hanna Montana Look a like

Haha it is my daughter,
