UUGGHHH! and other ramblings

So, Mandy and I went to the aquarium on Tuesday.. but do you think either one of us remembered our cameras? Of course not! Mandy and I are so not good for each other! We are both way too forgetful and flighty. And, I'm not allowed (per Skippy) to keep my camera in my purse anymore becasue that's how the last one got lost. So now I never remember to bring it anywhere..

I digress... we had a fun time and the girls were actually a lot more interested in all the displays than I thought they would be. Luke had fun running around and and saying "duh duh duh duh" at everything. Poor Thyssen stayed in the stroller almost the entire time.

I am so excited for Christmas this year! The entire family will be at my parent's house and I can't wait to see all the grandkids together. Maybe we sill actually get a big family photo!! For some reason big family photos are impossible with our family.

Belen found her presents in the closet the other day and she said, "Mommy! What's all this for me?" I then had to explain to her that I have to wrap them all up and put them under the tree... then she proceeded with a zillion why questions. Gotta love 3 year olds!

So, Trena tagged me, and I have to say I'm happy about it.

Six intersting things about me... I'll try to make it interesting.

1. At age 16 I was asked in a job interview what my talents were.... so, I showed how I was double jointed and turned my arm around in a complete circle... if you were wondering, I didn't get the job. My interviewing skills have improved slightly since then.

2. Going off of that last one- when my hand is planted flat on a surface, I can turn it around in a complete circle. When I put my arms out straight and lock my elbows, my arms look freak-ish.

3. My whole life I was told that I had a heart murmur and went to cardiology appointments every year until I was 18, and wasn't able to participate in sports or over-exert myself in any way... then when I was 22 I went to a new doctor and found out that I actually don't have a murmur and my heart is completely normal. go figure.

3. I was born on my mom's birthday.

4. I am one out of five kids that does not have curly hair.

5. I'm a natural teacher.

6. I'm silently/internally competitive, like my dad.

So, KARA!!! Tag, you're it!
