Finally...something to blog about!!!

I'd like to say that our lives have been eventful and they have (for us) but definitely nothing blog-worthy. Until now!!! Sunday was Annabelle's 4th birthday party..dem' Bailey's know how to throw a party!!! It was a Dora party complete with a Dora jump castle, cotton candy machine, popcorn machine and a visit from Boots!!! WOW!!! The kids had a blast...some were afraid of Boots and wouldn't go near him (or is it her??? I really have no idea!). Mac and Lily Kate happened to be one of these kids except Mac actually warmed up to ol' Boots. Once he let Boots hold him, he pestered Boots the whole time. Occasionally I heard him say things like, "Hey Boots...I am a big man!!!" or "Boots, look at my booboo on my knee!". Poor Boots, he couldn't shake Mac off of him. Abby was so afraid of Boots that she hid in the Dora jump castle back in the corner the WHOLE time Boots was there. She finally came out when the cake came out. Speaking of cake, Lily Kate was very helpful after we sang "Happy Birthday" to Annie. She insisted on helping Granny pass out plates to all of the children. Once the cake was cut and she thought no one was watching, she took a small swipe at Dora's hair. Ummmm, she thought and proceeded to take more swipes. Priceless...both my kids don't like the cake so much but do love the icing!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANNIE!!!!!! WE LOVE YOU SOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!

Finally, Mac warms up to Boots!!

Hey Boots, whatcha' doin'?? Hey this!!!

Princess Abby stranded atop her castle. Unable to join in the birthday fun, paralyzed by her fear of oversize monkeys, waiting for her prince charming to save her.

The birthday girl with Boots...she was so excited that she couldn't stop laughing!!!

Lily Kate insisted on making her own personal mark to the birthday cake...

"now that everyone has had a piece of cake, I am sure it is okay if I resume my own personal sampling...."

Definitely a sign of a good time...Lily Kate's socks

Funnies from the Jones'.....

We have been pretty slack lately with updating our blog; sorry!!! We have a lot going on to say the least. Here are some funnies recently heard around our house; it was more fun to post these than the winter funkiness that is otherwise going on!!

Our neighbors across the street are smokers and only smoke outside. From the window in our kitchen, we have a birds eye view of their back porch. Since it has turned cold, the Mom bundles up in a huge blanket when she is outside smoking. The other morning Mac says to me (in his covert spy whisper), "Mommy, do you see that (pointing across the street)?" "See what?" I ask. Again pointing he says, "Over there, look! It's the Baby Jesus!"

Mac: "Mommy, I want to go outside on a tricycle ride"
Me: "I don't think so Mac, you don't feel very good"
Mac: "But I want to go outside on a tricycle ride"
Me: "Honey, you are a little bit sickly and I think you should stay inside"
Mac: "But I not sick, I smilin'!"

The other night Michael was putting Mac to bed. He had just finished up a story and prayers and was getting ready to leave his room. I was in our bedroom and this is what I overheard.
Michael: "Okay buddy, just turn off the light when you are finished looking at the book. I love you, nite nite."
Then Michael comes into our bedroom.
Me: "Uh, excuse me, but when did this new routine of him staying up to look at books begin?"
Michael: "It's just for a few minutes!"
Me: "Okay, so the next time he asks me to keep the light on when it is time to go to sleep and I say "no", you know I am going to get it, don't you?"
Michael: "Well I think that now would be a perfect time for me to tell you that when you are not around I let him smoke crack"
