Enlightening Conversations Between Aaron and Mandee

Last night while we were watching the news, I asked Aaron a question-

M: How do you go to the bathroom in space?
A: A tube.
M: Really?
A: Yeah. Then it goes into space.
M: No it doesn't.
A: Yeah, it does.
M: You're totally lying to me...
A: I'm really not.
M: So there's poo floating around in space...

A: There's all kinds of crap floating around in space. Broken satellites... poo.. all kinds of stuff. And boats dump their bathroom waste in the ocean.

M: Seriously... that is the sickest thing I have ever heard.
A: They have to be at least 5 miles from the coastline when they dump it.
M: That's not far enough. I will never get in the ocean again. I don't want to live on this earth anymore.

A: You want to live in space?
M: No. I want to live in heaven.
A: You think there isn't poo in heaven?
M: There isn't. You don't have to eat, so you don't have to poo.
A: Jesus ate after he was resurrected.
M: But he didn't have to. And I'm sure he didn't have to poo after he ate.

You are too funny! Aaron's not lying - if you don't think about it you're better off, but I understand it's hard not to think about it once you know what goes on!

That was so enlightening
That really cracked me up! It happened when the husband gets even with you. Don't worry, someday you will get it back to him. I did that a lot to my husband (winks.)

Huh... I was under the impression that the practice of dumping human waste into space was stopped. I'll have to look that one up.

You guys have some seriously deep conversations. ;)

I found your blog from the Sticklands. Our sons were up at Primary's when Mason was first born. I love the movie collage, what a heart-warming video. I understand why you cried. It really is touching! You have a beautiful family!

Wow! I love a good poo coversation.
Poo is so broad. You can poo anywhere. It comes in a variety of smells and consistencies. All living creatures poo. you always feel better after a good poo. Looking at you own poo will often amaze you. It makes you move faster than you ever tought imsginable. It really makes you focus on what you are working to acheive. Man, I could go on and on.
What a peculiar and sometime nutty thing. I hope you all can smell what i am stepping in.
There is the luff.
Still lame?

Snowball Cookies

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…
