Trouble on the go

 Seriously, can someone please control this child?

After church today Samantha was playing quietly in her room while Dusty and I made lunch when I hear her say "Mommy.... mommy..... mommy back" (which means -Mommy come back) So I walk into her room to find THIS! How on earth did she climb into the drawer? And let me just add, that draw originally had clothes in it, which are now all over the floor!

And again, after dinner......
This time the cat joined in..... Oh Sammy.

We figured out she used her pink chair as a stepping stool. Don't worry, the chair is no longer in Sam's room.

The Naughty List

October 28, 2010
Look at this girl. Isn't she just the sweetest little angle??

No. No she is NOT. But she's good at tricking you.

For example, While Dusty and I were having fun doing this......


Samantha was in the background doing a little of this....
That's her "Big Girl" happy dance.

And a lot of this.......

And that's why we're never invited back to people's homes. 
But we still love our crazy Sam.

The Big Chicken

Wednesday, October 19, 2010

Yet another reason why I love North Dakota and all its randomness....

We found this over sized chicken on the side of the road right outside Fargo. A photo-op I couldn't pass up.

Ahhh... Summer Days

Friday, October 1, 2010

Oh Summer, were you even here?
Call me a Debbie Downer, but summer is over and I am sad. Mostly because I'm not looking forward to winter. And really, who looks forward to a North Dakota winter? This winter is predicted to be hard, cold and loong.  We were just getting started and now its over. Last week we pulled out the winter bins from storage (which is fun because its like discovering a whole new wardrobe) But, still depressing because I won't be wearing any of my brightly colored shirts, summer dresses or strapy sandals again until next June! Ohhh, I'm going to miss you, fun summer clothes.

Also, to add to my sadness, I've been missing Texas. There are so many random things I never thought I'd miss like: 105 degree weather (Yes, Really, I just want to feel the heat on my ghastly pale skin), Jumping into a cool pool on a blistering day, Feeling the hot pavement on bare feet - so hot you have to run because it burns the bottom of your feet, Going to a Real Over-sized water park - none of this indoor stuff, Laying out and getting a tan -Tanning Beds are a poor imitation, Speeding down the highway, Driving on a Highway, Good radio stations (Grand Forks- TLC is dead! No more Jason Waterfall), Seeing thousands of birds pepper the sky when they migrate south for winter, Haunted Houses, Oversized Malls, Mexican food.

But enough of my complaining. At least Samantha is having a blast. She is finding lots of things to keep her busy, such as....

 Dress up shoes. Sam LOVES trying on shoes, anyone's shoes, but especially noisy ones that click when she walks across the kitchen floor. She is such the Girly Girl!

 Coloring. Sam has discovered that coloring is so fun, especially when you lay on the paper. Lol, I have no idea what she was doing but it was hilarious. Thankfully we are still coloring on paper and not furniture.

 Baby Dolls. She loves to find the baby's eyes and feet, and to feed the baby a bottle or pacifier. And sometimes we find baby in funny places, such as the fridge or the bath tub.

Water Bottles. This bottle was originally used as "No No Water" but Samantha completely ruined it when she discovered how fun it is to drink the water and to spray herself in the face.  

Such a crazy girl! We love her so much. Everyday she makes us laugh.
