Funny Bone

If anyone trully knows me...they know that I have a weakness for AFV. What is AFV you ask?! Well, it is America's Funniest Videos! I love the show. This is the only show that I will giggle out loud to. So indulge me as I share one of my all time favorite videos...

Lindsay is here...


After a failed attempt, Lindsay has made it to Iowa. We are so happy to have her here. The kids are so excited too. Sydney has already planned out the games that she wants to play with her. And Aut can't wait to show her Tony Hawk.

Funny thing--Linds said that she is happy we live in we are the only ones she has to visit and that there is no sight seeing here. No sight-seeing!? What about our snow covered corn fields? Now that is a sight to see. Anyway, we are planning a fabulous weekend!

Why Am I the Last One?

Well, it is official...I think I am the last one of my friends to start a blog. Lindsay told me it was about time I step into the 21st century! So here I am...blogging!


Ok, really...why is it called blog? I mean, really, where did that come from? I am sure that it is a technical term or whatever...but really, they couldn't think of anything better? What about--flooger or graffle or dooker...Ok, so I can't either. But still.

So enough of that...

Let me introduce my family!

Well, Nick & I have been married for 8 1/2 years. We are quite the happy couple.

Nick is now getting his PhD in Economics. What was that?! Oh, you aren't crazy...he now has a BA in Economics, a MS in Law Studies, a JD in Law, and now we are seeking the illustrious PhD in Economics. One day he will be great Law and Economics Professor. Key word: One Day!

Erika stays at home with the kiddos. My life is pretty top activities are as follows: Chauffeur, Referee, and Professional Organizer. Good times, right?!

Well, nick and I have 3 CRAZY kids! And no, I am not just being dramatic, they really are alittle crazy. But I must say they are super cute!!

Austin is 5 1/2. He loves Kindergarten, Video Games (especially Tony Hawk), and his Heelys.

Sydney is 3 1/2. She LOVES preschool, playing games, and eating anything with sugar in it!

Kaden is almost 2. He is a sweet boy...but sadly is starting to learn the dramatic ways (tantrums) of his older siblings. He loves Dora, Blue's Clues, and his bunny.

So I guess this it...I need to keep updating this.

Thanks for reading! Now, that just sounded stupid, huh?! Oh, well...I am new at this, remember!? so cut me a little slack.
