Sushi bargaining!

John bought some sushi from Costco but didn't care for it. So there was a lot left. The boys like sushi too. They ate some but there was still some left. We told Chris he could take it for lunch. He told us that everyone would want to trade him stuff for it. We told him that's ok if he wanted to trade. So today he got a chocolate rice crispie treat for one and .50 cents for two of the other pieces. To top his bargaining off he told his friends that he would eat the little cup of wasabi sauce plain if someone gave him a quarter. One of his friends took a taste of it and took him up on the offer. Chris ate the cup of sauce and got a quarter! I had to laugh! Life would sure be boring without Chris.

John got me this real cute accordion file. I love magazines but they take up to much space. Now I have a place to organize and keep my magazine clippings. Isn't my husband a sweetie!

I had fun playing around with paint today. John told me don't worry about what it turns out like just enjoy doing it. With that attitude in mind I had a lot of fun painting.

Today while we were out we went to Michael's. I signed Chris and I up for a cake decorating class. They had a special going that if you bought the basic kit for $20.00 you got four free decorating classes (2 hours long each). Chris is very excited.

President's Day

The boys had today off so we went to the park and flew kites. We also went to the mall and did a little shopping. We had so much fun together! It was great to sleep in too.

Weekend Fun

We had a blast at the rodeo on Saturday night. The kids had so much fun cheering the cowboys on. We got to eat there too. The pictures are a bit blurry because they move so fast.

Pathetic Puppy

We had to get a cone to put around Pepper. She has some very bad alergies (like everyone else in Florida).She has been scratching and biting. The vet gave us medicine but she just licks or bites it off. Anyway, she was a riot with the cone on. I couldn't help but laugh. She would run in to things and then just stop and not know what to do next. She would stand there for a minute or so. We gave her attention when she ran into things. She picked up on the fact we would give her extra attention when she ran into things. No joke she then proceeded to run into things on purpose. She actually would make wide turns just to hit stuff. How pathetic is that. She eventually wore herself out.

Happy Valentines Day

Today I made a nice meal for John and the kids. Each part of the meal was someones favorite. For Michael I made lasagana, for Chris a baguette,and for John cream puffs. We also got our veggies in with a nice salad. The cream puffs are John's mom's recipe. I have only made them four times since we have been married (16 years). They are hard to make. Needless to say John was thrilled. You have to see what John made me on his post. He knows I like to read the post secret site so he put up a post the obvious on his site. It is so sweet. Yes, I know how much he loves me. Check out his link on the right side of the page where it says my hubby's blog.

What we have been up to

We have been pretty busy for a while now. We got to visit with Ben and Gina right after Christmas. We had a great time with them just hanging out. John and I kept our regular schedules while they were here. Unfortunately, the boys had to go to school while they were here but at least they got to spend the weekend with them. John had to run into work in the mornings to make sure his guys were doing what they were suppose to do. Ben and Gina work at Dixie Stampede in Misouri. They were able to get us a great discount. So we got to see the show while they were here. Before they got here we were able to get the guest room and the bathroom done. It is so nice to have two bathrooms. No waiting or at least not as long of a wait. John and I were sick for about a week. Michael is home today because he is not feeling well. We have been waiting to here if Michael's school is going to close. Still there is no word. I hate not knowing. Please pray that it will stay open.
My computer had a virus. Thankfully John's dad who is a computer genius was able to fix. Thank you so much dad.
