Friday night, Ethan pulled out our Wii and was playing a game with Alan. After he was done, Alan continued to play and then everyone was in bed. Saturday morning we were busy. Ethan, Alan and I were getting the piano moved, then dropping Alan off at stage crew and Ethan went to work for some training thing. I went home and crashed. After Ethan got home from work, he went to play the Wii and he couldn't find it. It had been on the top of the TV stand, but it was no longer there. He came down thinking I may have move it for some reason. After asking me, Mom, and Alan, and looking all over, we realized, it was stolen.
We called the police and reported it, they sent an officer over. Officer Kuss walked around the place and informed us that two cars had their stereos stolen during the night one street over. That made me think that they just saw Ethan and Alan playing and made a pit stop after they were done. Due to confusion between mom and me, the front door was unlocked, she had asked me to lock the doors on my way to the basement and I figured she had already locked the front door. She was pretty sure that she had locked the patio door as well, but we discovered the sensor lights were unscrewed. The Wii system, our bag carrying the remotes, battery charger, Mario Kart, two steering wheels, Starwars Unleashed, my Wii fit program and the Wii sport are all gone. The balance board for the Wii fit is still here, I figure they didn't see it. But the board is rather useless at the moment. They did leave the stand for the Wii, and the officer took it hoping to get some prints off it.
This just ticks me off. Someone else was saying about how my sanctuary been violated and frankly I don't feel that way at all. I mean, I know my Mom feels that way, but its not my home, so I really don't feel violated. I am ticked that they took my things! There is nothing else missing, which is why we didn't notice it right away. Where as I am glad nothing else is missing and that we are all safe but still.
Mark had his 9 month appt. last Tuesday. I swear, they can't measure. The first time they measured, it looked like he had shrunk. They did it again and measured him at 26 1/2 inches and 17lbs and 4 oz and his head was46 cm. When we got home, Ethan and Sara measured him and came up with 28 1/2 inches, I measured him yesterday and got him at 27 3/4. So I know he is not that small. They were concerned with his weight and told me to start supplementing formula for the next 6 weeks to determine if it is just genetics or if there is something wrong. I am bound and determine to show them that nothing is wrong and they just can't measure. He didn't get any shots, he had an ear infection and I refuse to let them do shots while he is sick. He was due up for the follow up shots for the Hib Vaccine. But he'll get it later. Other than that, they were impressed with his cruising skills and his babbling. He is growing so fast. Maybe not in height and weight wise, but he is smart.

The general premise of the show is about the adventures of Scrooge and his nephews. The nephews, who were originally living with their uncle Donald, are left in Scrooge's care when the former joins the Navy.
Though Scrooge is the richest duck in the world, he constantly tries to find ways to increase his wealth. A few episodes involve protecting his wealth from villains who want to rob Scrooge of all his money. The prominent recurring antagonists in the show include The Beagle Boys and Magica De Spell who are always finding ways to rob and swindle Scrooge and his nephews. Scrooge's nemesis in the show is Flintheart Glomgold, who always tries to devise plans to dethrone Scrooge Mcduck from his "Richest duck in the world" tag.
Huey, Dewey, and Louey are the best!!!!!The series focuses on the escapades of the eponymous "Gummi Bears," anthropomorphic bears who are the last remnants of a once-great civilization of Gummis that fled the land centuries ago. Regarded by most of humankind as fairytales, the show's main cast of Gummi Bears (six in number at the outset of the series, increased to seven during the third season) live in the vast subterranean warren of Gummi Glen in the medieval kingdom of Dunwyn. The Gummis' modern adventures begin when they are discovered by a human boy named Cavin who happens to have a Gummi Medallion. After he accidentally enters the colony's underground home of Gummi Glen, they capture and interrogate the boy as to how he gained the medallion. During the questioning, Cavin escapes, but refuses to cause any harm and attempts to befriend the reclusive bears. Impressed by this civilized behavior, they make him swear to keep their confidence and make him a privileged friend of the colony. Later, the medallion magically unlocks the colony's Great Book of Gummi, an essential reference guide to the forgotten knowledge of the Gummi Bears. Inspired by its writings, the colony resolves to rediscover their heritage and help Dunwyn defend against evil.
One of the worlds greatest candies were named after them, 'nuff' said.
After I was born, I was called Holly at first. If I talk to some of the older members of my ward they still do. Sometime after I was a toddler, I started asking to be called Margaret again, don't ask me why, who knows what a 3 or 4 yr. old thinks. At the same time, my parents were receiving two different medical bills from our insurance company, one being under Margaret, the other being Holly. They decided, since I was already asking, it would probably be easier.
I have gone by Maggie, in some classes in school, and when I was living in Utah, I was always called Maggie. But coming home, it seemed weird to be called that.
1. They don't think that their vote will matter. What is one voice in millions?
2. They hate the canidate choices.
3. They don't care what goes on around them.
4. They figure the world is going down the drain, so why bother?
5. They don't know how to register themselves.

This easily has to be my favorite show as of late. It a game show of people doing an extreme obstacle courses with the hope of $50,000. As you can see there are some funny scenes from the show. Luckily you do not get disqualified for wiping out.

Here is what the place looks like from the outside. It has couple of broken windows, needs some plumbing done, a small leak in the add-on that needs fix, and some cosmetic work. But it is very structurally sound.
It has a backyard, about half an acre, there is a creek that runs along the property line. There was a pool at one point, but it has been taken out. We plan on putting a bonfire pit where the pool stand is. Next to the pool there is a shed, it has a concrete floor and is already wired for electricity.
Generally things about the house. 4 Bedrooms, one Bathroom, we plan on adding another one in a couple of years. The bathroom upstairs, has a jacuzzi tub, anyone that know me, knows that is a wonderful thing for me. I love lounging in the tub. Dining room, living room, a giant entry way, and big mud room in the back. We will probably convert the mud room into a laundry room. Plenty of room for food storage. Pray for us!
