Clarification

I feel like I need to clarify a few things, after reading my interview with c jane;

1. It's interesting what comes out in an interview over e-mail.


2. In our house full of boys, we do have a daughter. (And she loves being the only girl, by the way.)


3. "Something about selling diamonds forces you to mature." in these ways-
A. You are required to wear "nice" clothes to work
B. You make a lot of money in May and December
C. You have to pretend you're a know-it-all when it comes to jewelry

4. I went to UVSC, but never strutted my stuff. (How embarrassing c jane!)


5. I love c jane, and loved chatting with her over e-mail. She's one of a kind!


6. I REALLY only entered her contest because I wanted a c jane prize.

7. This experience has been the HIGHLIGHT of my blogging life!

Thanks again, c jane!

P.S. If you haven't read her Sorta FAQ's yet, you are in for a real treat. They made even my husband laugh!

Amanda,

I clarified the part about a daughter (sorry Maddie!), but I couldn't change the "strutted herself" in the Hall of Flags because you would be lame if you didn't. It was required! I mean, don't you think I am doing you a fava?

Loves,
c jane

And may I just say how hot I look in that interview with David (I call him David these days.) My hair...my legs...that dress...I mean...I am speechless!

You do look hot c jane!

And I have to know if my friend Jessica strutted herself down the Hall of Flags? Did you?

I always made sure I had a guy friend strutting through the hall with me... I always felt lame without one!

c jane, don't let her fool you. I see her strutting her stuff down the hall at church ever Sunday.
I loved the interview! You are the best mom to your "bonus kids" and the boys! I have to say I dreaded walking down the hall of flags (or "fags" as Craig calls it) I know I sat and watched everyone. I think everyone felt lame walking down that hall. So you're not alone.

Nice interview - now you are famous blogger too! Oh the hall of flags is embarrassing. I loved reading more about you, you are so cute! I miss you too!
Mandee said…
Whatever Katie... you're the one doing the strutting in the halls, while I'm in Primary doing Sharing Time.

I am a lurker but have to say I love your blog. I found it through Kelly (who I don't know either) but I think you are so funny and I loved your back to school/fall post.

Snowball Cookies

[image]
It snowed this week. And though we don't have many family traditions, one that we started when we became a family was to make Snowball Cookies on the first snowy day of the season. And since we like cookies so much, we usually make them on other random, snowy days, too. They help ease my pain and anxiety over winter. You know-- carbs. 
There is nothing better than Snowball Cookies and hot chocolate on a snowy day.
Snowball Cookies 1 c. butter 1/2 c. confectioners sugar 2 tsp. vanilla 2 c. sifted flour 1 c. chocolate chips 1 c. chopped pecans (an option I don't use) Additional confectioners sugar (for rolling)
Beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add remaining ingredients, mix. Use a teaspoonful (I use a small ice cream scoop) of dough and roll into small ball. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool slightly and roll in confectioners sugar. (I roll them twice.)

Christmas 2010

Christmas 2010 (I am in an honest enough mood to admit that this is not my favorite picture of my kids. And it was $15.) 
I promised Aaron that I wouldn't write about how this was our worst Christmas ever, so I won't.  So let's remember these things:

1. The conversation I had with Charlie just days before Christmas ... said in the midst of grumpy, overly hyper kids throwing Legos at each other

Me: You know what I want for Christmas? I want kids that will get along! Charlie: Do you mean new kids, or us? 
2. Having my dad sleepover on Christmas Eve and spend all of Christmas day with us- something he never does.

3. Fun parties and dinners with friends, family, and neighbors. Including our very first non-kid New Year's Eve celebration. Sign me up for that next year!

4. Visiting the Santa at Gateway Mall that was  grumpy and missing most of his bottom teeth.  He went on to scold me about what my kids had told him they want for Christmas- all Nintendo Dsi's.  And whi…

Let Us Eat Cake

We have some important events to celebrate at our house this weekend!

Today is Aaron's 44th birthday. I honestly thank the heavens for that man every day of my life, so I'm especially looking forward to celebrating him today! Although, I still need to go buy the presents. (Busy week.)

Today, we are also celebrating Jack's Preschool Graduation. Since he has a late birthday, I have always planned on waiting until he was 6 to start kindergarten. But now that he is finished with preschool, it's obvious we are both ready for him to start kindergarten next year. He's all registered, and we have his 5 year old "shots" appointment next month. And while I'm a little bit sad that our baby is growing up (in just the blink of an eye he'll be graduating from high school) I'm also excited to move onto the next phase of life.

Of course, Monday we'll celebrate a rainy Memorial Day, and Tuesday will mark 10 years of marriage for us.  TEN years.  Someti…
