How do I love thee. Let me count the ways...

  1. Dead grasshoppers

  2. Live grasshoppers

  3. Baby lizards

  4. Lizard body parts

  5. A dead mouse once a week

  6. A mouse that's still breathing, but wishes it was dead, once a week

  7. A very dead mouse on Thursday, an almost dead mouse left in the kitchen floor, and yet another mouse - very much alive - in our bathtub on Friday.

This last mouse, I came to realize, was not a gift for us. It was simply a toy that the cat picked up for herself while out on her hunting trip for our little gift. (You might wonder how I know it was a toy for her and not a gift for us... that would be because we found her in the bathtub playing with it. No harm, no foul.)

OK, Leah. We get it! You're angry that we got a dog and you're feeling some pressure to establish your place in the family.

Since I know that you're at home sitting by the computer reading my blog, please, I beg of you! We love you dearly, but you can stop the gifts!

You're spoiling us. Really.

Nasty!!But halarious!! I love the kitty post, you're right!! Our cat just stands in one spot and "traps" the mouse until WE get it..he's not very good at following through I guess, that's Harlie (our other cat) Bella is to cute to catch anything..she's to busy chasing her tail and throwing all my sweaters on my closet floor And messing up all the pillows on my bed and then I blame it on the boys (who know better)...until I caught her in the act..LOVE my kitties!!

let's get acquainted

THE Stephanie
I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
