Sharing my adventures, thoughts and occassional jokes. Sorting through laundry, and a little bit of life…This is How I Train My Dragons…


We drink out of fancy glasses for no reason. We gather gifts from around our house and have family present Day. We drink milk from the carton. We smell each others stinky feet before we decide it’s time to wash them. We have the name Emaleigh written in random places throughout the house. We step in ALOT of dog poop. We love having our quarterly movie nights with junk food. We never have napkins at the table so we all use the same hand towel. We have peanut butter and jelly stains on our couch. We like to let Eydan say our prayer at dinner time. We have spent every New Years Eve as a family, nothing beats that. We always have toothpaste spit in the bathroom sink. We file papers on our countertop. We burn our pizzas on Valentine’s Day. We go in and out of the bathroom while someone is using it. We are unsure of what privacy means. We have bubble gum mashed in our carpet. We still have tickle fights. We know that Mommy is Switzerland. We love walking to Diamond Shamrock for Icee’s. We have laundry always crawling up the stairs. We have always wanted a laundry chute. We like to practice moonwalking in the kitchen. We like to say “ooooo buuuuurned”. We eat frozen grapes in the summer. We like to hold our breath under the bathtub water. We always have Crisco in the cupboard. We aren’t afraid to be silly. We drink water out if the hose. We smell bottoms to check for dirty diapers. We wear our jammies all day on most Mondays. We love to sing along to Hakuna Matata. We all fall asleep during the second movie at the drive in. We blame our farts on the dog. We have a dog who likes to blame his farts on us. We make each other cry every time we attempt a snowball fight. We go crazy for Crazy Bread. We roast s’mores at the kitchen table over tea light candles. We make each other laugh…some more than others. We love to take road trips (even with three kids). We make soap boats. We love Chocolate Cherry Bordeaux Ice cream. We always try to make the best of every situation. We love each other…and that’s the best thing about us.
