I Am In BIG Trouble NOW!

Yeah, so Griffin can officially CLIMB out of his crib. It was quite the experience!! I had put Griffin down for a nap but he didn't fall right to sleep. He was in his crib talking to himself when all of the sudden his voice got louder. I peaked my head down the hallway and noticed his bedroom door was open. Uh, that's weird? Who opened his door? I asked Charlee if she went in his room and she assured me she DID NOT! I walked down the hallway and into Griffin's room only to find....NO GRIFFIN! He was not in his crib, he was not in his room....WHERE IN THE WORLD IS HE? I could hear him, but I could not see him. So strange???? I turned around and pushed the bathroom door open all the way and THERE HE WAS, playing with the tub toys. WOW! He was magic, because certainly he didn't get out of his crib ALL by himself!

About 20 minutes later, I once again laid Griffin down to take his nap. This time I thought ahead! Tammie hid in the closet in Griffin's room before I put him down. Within THREE minutes that little stinker had once again CLIMBED out of his crib! But, now we know how he did it! He is not magic at all! He has serious MONKEY TOES! My little man managed to wrap his little toes around the slats in his crib, throw one leg over the top, pull the other leg over, hang his body down and let go, landing on his well cushioned bum! He then pulls the door open with his chubby little fingers and walks out grinning from ear to ear.

Now, what 13 month old can do this? My little 13 months old Griffin can! Cooper nor Charlee EVER climbed out of their crib. I am in serious trouble!

Late Night....

Once again here I sit. This computer and I spend a lot of time together. Now, not because I choose to sit here and do nothing but because, well, I DON'T SLEEP like a normal person. So, I will warn you now - this may just be a ramble, hullabalu, whatever post. I have so many random things running through my head right now, I have to get them out. If I don't I may never go to sleep tonight!

Random Thought #1: I am really irritated with the fact that my camera is broken. I know I should just get over and go get a new one but I can't. I am not mad at Charlee anymore, just mad that it's broke and it was only 6 months old. I need to go camera shopping...anyone have any good advice for me - like what camera I need to buy?

Random Thought #2: I am truly grateful for the nice guy who lives up the street from me. He is building my kids their swing set and saving me much dreaded time outside. It is still way to hot for me to be building a swing set....the heat is just an excuse. The real truth? I honestly have no idea how to build a swing set!

Random Thought#3: I am not looking forward to waking up in the morning and telling the kids they are not going to school but to the Dr. to get FLU SHOTS!!!! I can see it now...crying...crying...crying...I don't want to go....crying...screaming...fear...panic...anxiety...now you see why I don't tell them until the day of!!!

Random Thought #4: It hit me pretty hard yesterday when I realized that we are HALF way through SEPTEMBER!!! That means only 6-8 more weeks until Mike comes home for a visit!! YAY...HOORAY....YAY!!! Oh, I can't wait. It is going to be so nice to see him, hug him, kiss him, ??????

Random Thought #5: I should probably STOP thinking about Random Thought #4.

Random Thought #6: Enrichment Night is coming up here pretty quick....six days actually. I am feeling pretty good about things. I just hope people actually show up. It really sucks when people DON'T come! But, they are going to miss a great night if they don't come. We have some REALLY good stuff for everyone. We are going to play a couple of games(I know...games, ugh...these are fun though, I promise!) and the prizes are FANTABULOUS!!!

Random Thought #7: How many Cokes a day is to many? Or can one person not get enough Coke? Seriously...I like Coke more than water. Is that weird?


Random Thought #8: I need to get a cute, easy little craft for the nursery kids to do during Enrichment Night....???? Any ideas?????

Random Thought #9: I would LOVE to eat some KING CRAB LEGS right now! Oh yeah, that sounds yummy!!!

Random Thought #10: Ooooohhh, Artichokes sound good too. Why do I always get hungry late at night? It can't be good for my body, right? I mean, if I actually ate late at night...everynight...multiple times a night?

Okay, I will stop. I know I need to seek therapy! But then my therapist would be sleeping and I would still BE AWAKE!!!

Orange Bavarian Cream Chocolate Cupcakes!

Yes, you read that right! Orange Bavarian Cream Chocolate Cupcakes! And oh my, they are delicious! Or maybe scrumptious, delectable, mouth watering, heavenly, luscious....the list goes on and on. I have never eaten a cupcake that has tasted so lovely! I swear I was experiencing a small piece of heaven while I ate the cupcake! The best part? I MADE it all...from SCRATCH! Yes, once again you read it right! I made it all from scratch. That would mean, NO BOXED stuff!

Would Be Picture Here
Remember? Charlee Broke My Camera!
So you all must just imagine this beautiful little cupcake in your head! First, a chocolate cupcake with an orange Bavarian cream center, topped with MY butter cream frosting (I can't tell you my secret ingredient...if I did, I would have to kill you!) and then....candied orange peel to make it even more desirable! Is your mouth watering yet? If so, head on over to my place! I still have a few in my fridge. Oh yes, they are even better cold! But you had better be quick about it. I can't promise them there for long...they are calling my name right now!
