BabySteals.com in the news!



It's pretty surreal when you see yourself on the news. Well, not yourself, but something with so much of yourself in it. When I saw this today, I kept thinking, "Wow, this website sounds awesome!" And then realizing, wait, it's mine! That's my way of saying that WFSB in Connecticut did a fabulous job on this piece. By the way, BabySteals.com is 3 months old today (well yesterday, but I still haven't gone to bed so to me today is yesterday. It's 2:00am but Blogger thinks it's 2 hours earlier).

I've been working since I got home from work (why doesn't that sound right) and I STILL have over 100 more orders to ship. Stories like this though, keep me going!

Watch here!

funny things our kids say

Since Brandon is getting baptised next Saturday, I was reminded of a funny thing that Easton said to my dad when he was little. My dad emailed it to me and I've kept it forever because I thought it was so funny. This will probably only be funny if you're a Mormon or at least know a lot about the religion.

3/31/99:
Easton was sitting on my lap last night while I was looking at NBA.com and listening to the JAZZ blow another overtime. This picture was on their main page with a caption. Easton pointed to it and said, "That guy is getting baptised"...

Happy 8th Birthday Sweet Brandon!


Brandon's Favorite Things on his 8th Birthday:
Color- Black and Blue. Because they are cool colors.
Food- Cookies, Broccoli, Corn, Apples and Peaches. Because they're good for you, except the cookies.
Toy- My Pokemon Cards. Because they help people sound out words and help make them good readers.
TV Show- Skunk-fu and Johnny Test. Because there is a skunk in it and Johnny Test because there are more inventions than any other TV show.
Movie- The Little Rascals. Because it's funny.
Friend- Ryan and Palmer my cousins. Because they are nice and friendly.
Sport- Skateboarding, Soccer, Golf, Fishing and running around the thing over at the High School.
Memory- Over at Greys River when I caught my 15" Cutthroat Trout.
Video Game- Guitar Hero III. Because I am on expert.
Pokemon- Empoleon. Because he is a Level X card and I got it from Palmer.
Vacation- Denver, (because there is a swimming pool) Greys River (because nature is all around it) and Disneyland (because there is rides and cartoon people like Buzz Lightyear and my favorite ride is Space Mountain and Splash Mountain.)
Restaurant- TGI Friday's. Because my aunt Sara and uncle Brock work there.
Other Favorite Things: Riding my KTM 50 Motorcycle, Greys River, computer games.
Why I'm excited I'm 8: Because I get to be a member of the Church and I get to be in Scouts and I get to be a Deacon one day.

Jane's 2nd Birthday

I know, it was way back on May 2nd and I kept thinking I couldn't possibly post the pictures without writing about her birthday. Since my life has been crazy hectic since then, I decided to post a few cute pics and blog later. I have the cutest little girl in the world!

In the meantime, these pictures are self explanatory about a scary but funny thing that happened. Jane blew out her candle so cute but of course everyone wanted the perfect picture, so we had to do round 2. The second time around, she blew out the candle, I thought! Instead her whiff of air missed and since I was behind her I couldn't tell. Within milliseconds everyone was cringing and it turns out instead of blowing out the candle, she singed all some hair on her upperlip and nose. People thought it was pretty funny but scary because she could have burned her mouth pretty bad! She didn't seem to complain though! Scroll down to view the animation:

Oh, perfect, Jane! Try again!

OUCH!
