Showing posts from January, 2011


On my 33rd year of life....this is what I woke up to this fine morning! What a sight to behold! Not to mention the wonderful weather we had today! Today I told myself I didn't have to do anything I didn't really want to do. So I read on my Nook for 2 hours (I will finish that 3,000+ page book if it's the last thing I do!) and then I worked out and got ready for the latter half of my day. On my way out to take Dru to school I saw this...I couldn't believe it! It almost made me thought Spring was around the corner...along with the awesome, sunny we had going today! January is such a droll month as it is but to have sunshine! I had to wear my sunglasses! We are mole people I tell ya and we all probably support the sunglasses companies more than most. As I was driving home from the SuperMall, I saw this. I just thought this was so cool! Like we were being invaded!!!
For my birthday I decided I would try and go out and go shopping and spend all my birthday money. So to th…


My kids: "Why did Auntie Nikki leave the skull thing at our house?"

Me: "Uh, that's not from your Auntie. That's been sitting outside for months now, from a wind storm awhile back, no one has been listening to me when I've been telling you that it's out there, not even your dad (who brought it in saying, look what I found)."

First thought to myself: Why doesn't anyone listen to me????

Second thought to myself: Those boys don't know their Auntie as well as they think they do!


How To Tame Your Lee...I mean Your Dragon...sorry for the slip up! This was the cake Lee picked out for his party. Thanks to his Grandma, she makes it possible for her grand kids to have cakes likes this. I never knew cakes like this existed as a kids are spoiled! I can not believe that my boy is 7! I remember thinking 7 was so old...he's 7 now...I have no idea what I think is old now. My oldest is going to be 9 in March...I have a feeling this year is going to be a tad tough for me...I just shivered! I knew it!
Listening to the choir of angels singing him Happy Birthday!
Make a wish my dear boy! Here's to a great year of 7!
What a special boy you are if you would just listen to your mother and quit getting bigger, that would be nice.


Lee's cupcakes for school...pretty nice...kinda girlie but it's what he wanted. Last year he had a pink cake with pink frosting...he confuses me sometimes.


Lee's birthday is tomorrow, he gets to bring treats..his favorite colors are green and red. Green cupcakes
Red Frosting
I bet this makes a lot kids have rainbow poop! Those parents are going to want to hurt me!

Chef Lee Paulson

One of the things Lee asked for Christmas was an Easy Bake Oven. I think he liked the idea of it and I think a big part of it he asked for it to see what people would do. Most would associate this kind of thing with a girl and really they don't make a boyish looking oven. I believe he had pink or green to pick from. Anyway, I think he kept asking for it to see if someone would tell him know that's a girl type toy or whatever, but no one did.

To be truthful, the moment my mother heard he wanted this she was all over it. She wanted one as a kid and didn't get one, so by golly her grandson was going to get one! Living vicariously through her grandson...she asked him if he might want more baking things for the oven and he said he did want them for his birthday. I see more baking in our future. So there is the finished product. One yellow cake with chocolate tasted alright I suppose. About what I expected from a little light bulb oven. He and his brothe…

Connect The Dots

So the other day I had Ian sit down and watch the memorial service in Tuscon, AZ. I thought this was important for a few reason and others I don't really know why. A few reasons were that our President was going to speak and I thought what he had to say in this instance (since he was steering clear of making it political) was important to hear. Secondly, there was a young girl Ian's age who was killed and being that Ian is almost nine...for some reason I thought this significant. Probably cause it affected me more than probably him. Anyway, I made him sit down and watch at least Obama's speech, which was very nice. Although I was highly disturbed by all the applauding and standing ovations during a memorial service. Ian lasted a little bit through the speech and then took off. He's asked several questions about the tragedy in Tuscon...but being that he's a boy I was slightly taken aback by the question of what kind of gun did the gunman use? Why this was …

Christmas Day Excitement...or was it????

This wasn't nearly the response we were expecting, kind of a let down really. Poor Frank, it hit him hard...he had it built up in his head and the kids just didn't hit the mark. He tries so hard! My mother however, was funny, she was WAY more excited than our boys were. Maybe we should take my parents instead of the boys!*Disclaimer: to be kids have no idea what Disneyland really is. They know they are suppose to want to go because it's all over the TV and their friends have gone and had a good time. But other than that, they haven't got a clue! The closest event they have gone too is the Puyallup fair to just get the tiniest glimpse of what Disneyland truly is. So it will be fun to take them but how do you get excited about something you really have no clue about???


Continue to scroll down to December to catch up on some previous post from last year that I'm just now getting too...if you'd like. I believe there are at least 3. Enjoy!

My House

No bathroom is complete with out their very own Nerf sword to defend off invaders (especially if you forget to lock the door!) to the Paulson throne (yes you may laugh cause I'm laughing hysterically).

I saw this during Christmas break and died laughing! It was about as good as finding army dudes in my bed when I pulled the covers back...all back to Sleeping with the Enemy...I forget which post that was...last year sometime I believe. Either way, sometimes those boys are good for a laugh when they don't mean to be.

Enjoy the chuckle!

Do Over

I don't feel like posting much tonight...I'm in a mood.

I'm going to say this and in by no means do I think my life is horrible, but there are some days it's just not worth getting up because then I might not have to feel anything. And that does just sound wonderful right now.

On Wednesday my grandfather passed away and that whole situation is what it is...nothing bad mind you, whatever...I know and that's what matters...go with it ;)

The last 2 days along with my grandfather, I have been praying for another family and a little boy who lost his life today. He was Dru's age and so it hits home just a tad hard. It happened all so quickly. So pray for this family, especially the mom, it was just her and her son...She and the rest of the family have a long road ahead of them. It's been rough here in my town the last few months with kids and many more stories and lives lost and lives changed forever.

I think that says it right there...l…


It says I have 12 of you guys out there...I'm shocked! I thought for sure the numbers would have dropped after I've been gone all this time!

Well I promise I'm here and now with the kids going back to school and the husband going back to work, routine shall prevail once more...THANK HEAVENS!!!

So with that said...there has been lots going on and many things to blog about. And because I am who I am, it will all be chronologically in order so you might have to look in December of last year. It just has to be that way.

Start looking in the next day or two for my ride through Christmas break, New Years and whatever else happened through all that time off!

I do hope everyone had a good holiday, we did. It was way busier than I would have wanted but I enjoyed a good portion of it also.
