At school right now is the spelling bee for all the grades. I can't tell you how much I disliked spelling bees. I hated always being the first one out. I don't think I have ever made it passed the first round. Robbie came home from school yesterday (Robbie often reminds me he taught me how to spell that word) a little bugged. He won his class spelling bee and now he has to be in the school competition. What could he possibly mad about that? He said only nerds to good in spelling bees. Now while this is true (that what first round outers say) it is still awesome for Robbie. I said, hey if you do good, this might be your only chance to be on ESPN. I know Robbie doesn't like to lose, so sometimes he doesn't want to try so he doesn't lose. I told him to read over the list of words they gave him and the rest is luck, getting the words you know.
If you get a chance watch this video from one of our favorite comics Brian Reagan! That is if I can figure out how to post it!

The doctor ask do you think there is someone out there you can truly love as much as your wife? He says, it's hard to imagine. She ask, what are you going to do? He says, I'm going to get out of bed every morning, breathe in and out all day long. And after awhile I won't have to remind myself to get out of bed in the morning and breathe in and out. And then after a while I won't have to think about how I had it great and perfect for a while.

So now it is Valentine's day and time to change my candy jar once again! Everyone says they hate candy hearts, but I have already had to fill the top of my jar again! These are one of my favorite candies, when they are fresh. Give them a couple of days and they won't be as good. I trying to think of a way I can put Peeps in my jar for Easter!

I think we all remember Luke climbing up on Adrienne's roof this last summer. This kid will honestly be the death of me! Luke can now climb out of his crib. Not a big deal for some parents, but for me who loved having an extra minutes while the monkeys played in their crib was priceless. Plus I could always put them down for a nap at exactly 1 o'clock and not worry about them. But now life has changed! If Luke is not tire, than he just climbs out and comes out of his room (yes he can open his door). This of course puts Johnjohn into a fit! But being positive, I am trying to look at the bright side of this...
- Luke can wake me up when I sleep in. Sunday morning I was greeted by an Oreo covered face. Yes that meant he was down eating Oreos before coming into my room.
- This leads to my next point, Luke gets up better than his older brothers and can get himself breakfast.
- I no longer have to pull Luke out of the crib while holding Johnjohn. Johnjohn would always want him to get him first, but would never let me put him down. I would then have to lift Luke out while still holding Johnjohn. I hope my arms are toning up!
- I now find myself not going into a deep sleep because I am paranoid Luke is going to climb out in the middle of the night. Deep sleep is over rated.
- Luke will let me know if Johnjohn has thrown up (more common lately than not). Mama gross, gross.
I know the monkeys will always keep me on my toes. As hard as it might be a times, I know they are a true blessing in my life!

The adults went to Tasha's parents home to ring in the New Year, while the kids stayed home and had a party of their own. They all managed to stay up till midnight. New Years is so over rated. I had fun at the Leishman's home. I learned some interesting things about Tasha's family and I am amazed that her brothers are still alive today! Tasha got a lot of reading done, because JD actually had someone to watch the Rose bowl with. JD is never surprised with my sporting knowledge. We had a great time on the trip and are thankful for the Griffith's putting up with us!
