Hit Again!

So today my new friends hit my account with a personal check of mine that they wrote out to Sams Club for $1,855.45. Nice huh! I guess they are taking advantage of my Sam's Club membership too. So now I have to deal with the check fraud department at the bank....which does not seem like its going to be a quick process. I can't even believe it, the signiture is so stupid looking and so different from mine. Anyways, just needed to vent. Once again let me be a lesson for everyone else.......NO NOT LEAVE ANYTHING VALUABLE IN YOUR CAR.....EVER!

Never Leave Your Purse in your Car!

Okay so today I went to the gym, just like most days except for my mom is in town so I didn't have my kids with me. When I got there I thought to myself....what should I do with my bag? So I just put in under the front seat of my car.(Usually I leave my bag in the childcare place, they put it behind the counter for you) So when I got to my car after my workout to my surprise the passanger front window had been shattered, and my purse from under the seat was gone. So I had someone at the gym come and clean out the glass while I quickly called the bank and all of my credit cards to report them stolen. Then I went to the police station and filed a report with them. I have been on the phone all day trying to get everything done. Out of all of the cards fo far they have gotten away with the following:

1. $409 at Target on my Target Card
2. $548 at Target on another Credit Card
3. 8 different cash advances for $217 each
4. $58 at a coffee shop

So lets Just say its been a great day! Luckily we are covered for all of the fraudulant charges.

Justin Got a Job

So today is Justin's first day at his new job. He has finally found a job working with art and the computer. It is called "CDI" and we are very excited. We sort of wanted to leave Las Vegas, but with the way the market is right now we wouldn't be able to sell our houses, so we know this is for the best. Yeah! I was so excited today when he didn't have to be a work until 8am, so the boys got to see him this morning....We're all grown up, we might even get Health Insurance!

Jack is Growing Up

Okay so my little Jack is growing up so fast. The other day he found one of my parenting magazines and on the back was an ad for the Highschool Musical 2 movie. He came up to me, with the magazine in hand and said, "Look mom, its Highschool Musical 2". And that is what he has been asking to watch the last couple of days. Of course I have it recorded.....who doesn't. I am so proud. Justin on the other hand asked me, "He doesn't like dance to it?....does he?"
Another little trick he pulled today was he decided he wanted to climb up the banister on the opposite side of the stairs. I was teaching piano lessons when one of my students, who was waiting said..."Ummm Sis. Patrick" I turned to him and said, "honey I am teaching your brother right now"...He persisted, "but Jack is climbing up the banister and he could fall" I went to look and he was all the way at the top on the other side of our loft railing. I almost had a heart attack....I am so glad I have boys!!!

2 More Days Till Grandma Comes!

My mom is coming to Las Vegas on Wednesday....we are so excited to see you. Jack is really excited that she is coming on an airplane. It's like a mini vacation for me too beacuse my mom totally helps with the boys, i get to sleep in and everything. Grandma, we can't wait!

Linc the Stink!

Okay so I just can't keep up with Lincoln. Last night during Scouts ( I am a den leader so we meet at my house every week) Anyways we were doing an activity in the living room and I look over and there is Lincoln, up on the bench eating half of the pan of rice crispy treats. He took little bites out of all of them and the boys did not want to eat them because tehy had germs. I was taking pictures of the Scouts so I had my camera ready and caught him in the action! That's why his nickname is Stink

Oh and he hit his head falling off of a chair, that's what the huge bruise and bump on his forehead is.

Just Like the Turtles

So Jack has been watching the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie like 3 times a day. Shauna bought him this skateboard when he was too little to use it so we have had it in the garage. Well today he spoted it and said, "Mom I want to skateboard like the Ninja Turtles" (One of them skates in the movie) He was so excited and I thought he looked so dang cute holding it like a little skater.

Jack poured his own juice

Jack was so proud of himself Justin caught the moment on camera. He is so independant, I'm not so sure I am excited about this. Justin was amazed, he said he didn't spill a drop.

The boys each picked one for themselves. it was so cute when we were in there, Lincon totally pointed and said "that" to the one he wanted.

Pee Pee in the Potty

I am going to be dreaming of that phrase tonight. Okay so today was my first real attempt at potty training Jack. I was attempting to do the "Potty Train your child in less than a day" Yeah.....not happening for Jack. After a frustrating morning of trying to follow the exact instuctions and schedule from the book I was about to give up after the 3rd accident and no success. I finally decided to not stress myself out and just do it my way. Jack finally went in the potty and he, and I were so excited. So here are the stats of the day...6 successful pottys and 6 accidents. I am now ready for bed.....To be continued
