Best Friends Make Trouble

Friday, July 16, 2010

Samantha has a new best friend and her name is Addy. (Addy is the little girl I babysit during the week.) So all day long at my house I hear "Addy, Addddy, Aaaaady" Its safe to say Sam is Addy's best friend too because the second thing I hear all day is "Sam, Saaamy, SamIE" It's so cute. The girls follow each other around, feeding each other crackers, offering drinks, sharing toys, and loving on blankets. They giggle and chase each other, its so fun!

This week they found some big trouble.... While I was upstairs doing a little cleaning Samantha and Addy were playing in Sam's room. I peeked in every few minutes and saw they were being nice, sitting on the floor in front of each other talking. I didn't look very closely at what they were playing because there's nothing in Samantha's room to cause trouble..... or so I thought. After about 5-10 minutes I walk in and find both girls COVERED head to toe in Vaseline!!! They were bathing in Vaseline! It was on their arms, legs, clothes, face, hair... everywhere! Including an innocent baby doll.

Oh my goodness! What a disaster! And worse of all, Vaseline doesn't wash out of hair. So Samantha and Addy now have sleek, greased over hair.

Sammy did the worst damage. All that shine, its Vaseline. And notice her dress is caked over as well.

There was a massive blob on top her head.

Addy was more conservative, focusing mostly on her hair, arms and shirt.

After the bath.
I washed them 3 times, once with normal shampoo and they were still greasy. I'm pretty sure Addy's hair was worse after washing.

That's what friends are for, right.

Then, today I found Samantha playing in the laundry basket, she climbed in on her own. She is such a mess maker!

This week I'm proud to receive the Worst Baby Sitter award.

Is It Him?

Thursday, July 8, 2010

Whats going on in our life lately? Dusty has gone to LDAC for a whole month while Samantha and I stay in North Dakota, waiting patiently . We don't get to call or talk to him until day 28 of 29. Which is in 12 days (not that I'm counting). We've mailed 4 cookie filed boxes and tons of letters. I've only received 2 letters so far (not that I'm counting).
On Facebook there's an LDAC page that gives regular updates of activities and posts photos of Cadets in the field. So, of course I examine EVERY 5th Regiment photo looking for my Dusty and this is what I've found...... nothing.

I'm pretty sure this is wishful thinking or my eyes playing tricks..... What do you think? Is it Dusty? Be kind.

Photo #1: On the right standing in front of the men throwing grenades?

Photo #2: Or, on the left, pointing his finger, telling the guys what to do?

Photo #3: Now I'm getting desperate, maybe in the circle, back row, third from the left?

And yes, I did blow them up on my screen to look closer.

I'm just going to say YES to all. It helps me sleep better at night.

**** After looking again photo #2 is out. The knee pads are wrong. See how desperate I am.

Happy Birthday America

Sunday, July 4, 2010

Happy Birthday America!! You don't look a day over 29!

In case you are wondering, Samantha did NOT enjoy fireworks this year. We couldn't stay out long because they terrified poor Sammy. But her favorite part was getting to say "Boom...Boom....Boooooom"
Maybe next year when dad is home to show us how cool fireworks really are.
