Trippin on Tuesday.

That's right folks! After many a months of no Trippin on Tuesday posts.. the time has come.
Grandpa has Roman so Mama gets to blog.

1. Kosher/ Sea Salt- I have been out for about a week and my cooking is just missing that extra pizazz. I am not really sure what it does. But I know its good. Thank goodness I got some today!

2. The Iraqi man who threw shoes and President Bush. I am not sure if this makes me want to laugh or cry. But it is interesting. My mom said she listened to a radio show about it and they said that it is one of the highest signs of disrespect you can show in Iraq. And I thought flipping the bird at him when he comes on the TV was bad..

3. My Dinner Swap. I know I know.. I talk about it alot. But each week I become more and more a believer. If everyone would just listen to me.

4. "Nude Models Strip to protest low pay." Wait- when you protest I thought you stop doing your job. But isn't stripping just doing your job? Such a double edged sword.

5. Roman begging us to chase him down the hall. He screams. "YIKES!". Where did he learn this? I am pretty sure I have never said the word "yikes." It's pretty funny though.

6. The city of Kaysville's new snow removal policy. LAME.

7. Twilight Movie- I know I know you are sick of hearing me talk about it. But seriously. I just want to go again. Like 18 times. Hey- I have only been three times.

8. Gas Prices! Seriously- they are totally the best.

9. Terrible Two's! Need I say more?

10. Spiral Baked Ham- I forget each year how delish this stuff is until I have it around Christmas. All I want for Christmas is 17 Spiral Sliced Ham's for my deep freezer.

11. Mervyn's closing. Dang- I will miss that store. I went in there today to check out the 60%-80% sale. I think they jacked their prices up so much that we are actually paying full price- but I am a bargin lover.

12. Neighbor Gifts. Love them.

13. All my awesomist neighbors who participated in donating to "The Road Home Project" that Jessica R and I put on. Seriously- it was so touching to see everyone giving and caring. It made me all warm and fuzzy.

14. Show's like "The 12 Days of Redneck Christmas." and the fact that my husband finds a reason to tell me about them. Eww.

15. And last but not least. My holiday gift to all you girls. This fella might be the guy playing Jacob in New Moon. ICARUMBA! I take back all those bad things I ever said about Jacob. YUMMO! Merry Christmas and to all a GOOD NIGHT!

Roman Turns 2!

This handsome devil turned 2 on Thursday.
I swear each picture I take of him I get more and more biased on how delicious he is.

I made Roman a smiley face waffle for breakfast when he woke up.

He liked it.

Party TIME! We had a Diego theme.

Here is THE Diego Cake. I used "THE" like so because I nearly had to freak the flip out on bakery I ordered it from. The cake decorator forgot to decorate it before she went home. So when I showed up it was just a brown blob of frosting. The Store manager asked me what he could do to make up for it- and I said.. "How about call the cake decorator and make her come in, this cake set the theme for my whole party.!!" Well he tried to decorate it himself as you can probably tell by the beautiful border and writing.. LOL! All I cared about was that damn Diego was on there!!

This picture pretty met sets the tune for the entire party. Roman didn't get his nap so he was one cranky camper.

He actually fell asleep during his own party on his Daddy.

Good thing Grandpa got home in time to wake him up to open his presents. We only made it through one and then I let Roman's little friends have at it and open them up!

Notice the house full of people? This was supposed to be a major cut down compared to last years- where people could barely breathe. What can I say- I like to party!

I just had to post this picture of Blakey. My darling
neighbors sweet little boy. He thought this stuffed Handy Manny was about the greatest thing ever- as you can tell!

Well thats the party in a nutshell.
I noticed this picture that my hubby took.
It sorta looks like the Eclipse book cover.
I might be Twilight obsessed.

Naughty or Nice?

I can not decide whether to tell Santa if he has been naughty or nice..
I found Roman with the refill brush for my electric toothbrush and the toothpaste yesterday. Below is evidence..
Isn't he cute watching Diego?

He said: "Mama- I BRUSH MY TEETH". A four word sentence!
Naughty: For getting in the bathroom drawers.
Nice: For brushing his teeth. And being cute. And sweet. And smart and handsome.
You decide?
Is he Naughty or Nice?

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire.....

Have I ever mentioned that I am a complete Christmas FREAK. I love Christmas and everything about it. The music, the happiness, the beautiful decorations, the holiday cheer, the shopping and mostly the celebration of Christ's birthday.
Tonight with the help of my friend Danielle (she owed me a favor) I got a small part of my Christmas decorations up. My little brother is headed down tomorrow to put up our outside light and I am going to spend the next week getting the rest of my decorations up! Busy Busy!
Anyways- Below is my porcelain Nativity Scene. I love this so much. It has the perfect Joseph and Mary and the perfect little baby Jesus.

I had some major handy girls helping me decorate the tree this year. I watched my friends little girls and they had a major blast! Hua kept her little booty on that ladder all night hanging ornaments. It was very serious business- as you can tell by her face.

Yasi helping out.

Hua showing Roman the ropes.

Roman decorating like a good MAN!

Tiare helping too!

Danielle takes direction well!

Notice the top of the tree had no ornaments. Isn't it sweet having little ones help out! The bottom was covered in ornaments. Some branches were stacked 3 high!!

Danielle placing the Angel.

The finished product after a little tweaking of course!
What good help I had today!

The very best part of the night.. was when Tiare said: "Jessica, I love your tree the most." I asked Why? She says "Because it helps me remember Jesus' birthday." Isnt she a doll??
Happy Holidays!

My Jack..

Did anyone see the cover of the TV Guide this week. It has a HOT picture of Jack Bauer. I could not find a image of it online so instead I made a collage. *Sigh* I heart this man. RAAAAAAAAAAAAR! Just 1 week until '24 Redemption' premires. Then the new season in January. Whoohoo!

The Shaffer's.

This might be one of my most favorite couples in the world. Emily is hilarious, Beau grew up with me and their daughter is Roman's girlfriend.

Anyways. As a favor I did their family pics. I am still feeling like major crap and pretty much had to sit down on a chair and rest, then put my pelvis in and then complain through out the entire shoot. But what are friends for right- they love you when you are completely unprofessional. Anyways- the pictures turned out wonderful! They are such a good looking, great family and Miss Arden Betty was putting on a show. Isn't this child's skin amazing. It glows in person I swear. We ended up with 140 good pictures. Talk about photogenic. Below are a few.
