To many pictures

I put to many pictures on my blog at the bottom click on older post and it will bring up the rest of the pictures I put on there today.

Bad day

Thursday morning I had just started to boil some eggs on the stove when I noticed the lunch check on the fridge crap...ok so I have about 15 minutes that the eggs need to boil I can take a quick bath and then check on the I do that and check on them everything is I go back to my room to get dressed and you guessed it...I forgot about the eggs, I start to hear this popping and my first thought was...what is sax (our dog) doing, when I walked out of the bedroom it finally dawned on me that it was the eggs, so I go to the stove and all the water had dissolved and the eggs were exploding, so I grab the pan and set it on a cloth that just happened to burn and stick to the bottom of the being the genious I am I put more eggs in the pan and put it back on the stove...well guess what? the pan wouldn't come off because of the burned rag on the bottom of it (I thought if it got hot it would burn it off) anyway as the picture shows I tried to get it off and this was the result....Please learn from my stupidity, needless to say I called Bret crying. The reason I was worried about the lunch check and getting it to the school fast was because Wyatt's hand had been stamped last week and they even called to tell me, Hayley just forgot to hand the check in, so I was worried Wyatt wouldn't get lunch.

April 11th............SNOW

Finally my computer is back and up and running, I am back, I have alot of pictures I haven't been able to post yet, so make sure you scroll down to see them all. I wish I were the writter that Kerrilyn is....but I am not so bare with me. I woke up this morning and saw this and was like "ARE YOU KIDDING" enough already, Hayley's rocket launch got canceled today because of the weather it is soooo COLD.......

Abbey lost her first two teeth, I saw this cute little box in Family Fun that Abbey and I made.

6th grade wax museum

Hayley is in 6th grade, and they have this thing they do called the wax museum. They pick a Historical figure, then dress like them and learn about them, then the 6th grade have a wax museam where parents can come and listen to their person, it is actually really a neat thing (I forgot to mention that Hayley was Nefertiti)

Brooke.....Hayley's good friend was Indira Gandhi
Dustin....Hayley's cousin was Moses.
