My sweet child, Sage! You are so weird. I love the randomness of your personality. Love, Mom

Okay so Sage has a mind of her own. She does the funniest things. The other day we were at Taco Bell for lunch and I had given her a napkin to wipe her face off. I said "Sage, wipe your face." She didnt understand me so I rephrased and said "Wipe your mouth." (and pointed to my mouth) So she takes the napkin, opens her mouth and sticks the napkin in there and wipes the inside of her mouth. *giggle*
Another thing that is disgusting but yet another story of my wild child is.....shes learned to pick her nose (gag) and everytime she does I get a kleenex and have her wipe her hand...she does not like doing that. So now she tries to hid it from me. I caught her picking her nose and she saw me and stuck (the booger *double gag*) back into her nose.
Sage has been learning the sounds of animals. Her first one we didnt teach her but she learned it on her own and I think its funny....we ask her what a dog says and she sticks out her tongue and pants like a dog. Her next animal she learned was cow...and she says mooo. For duck and bird she says caw caw. Now her latest is meme! lol
She loves loves to eat ice and carries her blankets everywhere with her. (the picture above is of her with her blankets just waking up from a nap)

After doing a quick shopping trip at Walmart today I walked out to the parking lot and down the isle to my car. SO I THOUGHT. I didnt see it. So I looked and looked. Up and down the next few isles. I was getting scared because I couldnt remember where I parked. Then I got scared because maybe it was stolen. I couldnt call anyone cause my phone died while I was on it talking to my BEST FRIEND WHO MOVED TO ALASKA. :( So I kept looking and looking. Finally I found it...right where I left it. All snug in its little parking space.

Although I thought I would be relieved to find it. I WASNT. Why did my memory fail me? I was only in walmart for 20-30 minutes. Plus, I forgot my coupon for my free candle that I originally wanted to go there for. Hmm! Any explainations for my memory loss?

Ive always had a bad memory..ALWAYS! But seriously, Ive never forgot where I parked my car! I guess I really am getting old. *sniff* *sniff*

Christmas is only 4 months away! Holy Cow! Is it just me or did summer FLY by?!?! Especially August. It seemed just a few days ago we were at the cemetery for Alans bday (Aug.4th) and now all the sudden its the 25th already. I cant even recall whats gone on this month. All my weekends have been booked and Im exhausted. Having fun but so so tired. And my next few weekends are booked also. Sheesh. NOW...Christmas is creeping up on me and I have no idea what to ask Santa for (wink) maybe a truck (double wink)!!!

In the next couple weeks I wanna spend as much time as I can with my best friend who is moving to Alaska. Im soo sad shes moving. *sniff sniff* And theres a family campout and then a friends family campout. Phew..thinking bout all this makes my head spin.

Sage has officially hit the terrible 2's syndrom. Mind you me...shes isnt 2 years old yet..**sigh**!!! Shes into everything and can reach everything. She throws a mother of a tantrum and is very specific about things she wants. But at the end of the day when she kisses me out of nowhere and gives me a hug...or when she snuggles next to me in bed and looks up at me with those adorable green heart melts and I forget about the days troubles. Funny how that happens.

I got a tattoo 2 weeks ago. Yeah I realize most of you dont agree with tattoos but me and my best friend (who I mentioned earlier) got a symbol that means FRIENDS FOREVER. It was important for us to do something since she is moving soooo far away..did I mention shes moving to ALASKA..ugg!?!?! Anyways I was really nervous about getting it done on my foot because I heard that it hurts really bad. Well I got it done and it didnt really hurt at all...kinda like an annoyance someone poking you. It took maybe a total of 10-15 minutes and it was finished. I think its really pretty!

Okay! Im back on the blogging mode. I had to go private for a while to deal with an issue with some spammer posting some mean comments on here. Now I approve your comment before it gets posted.

So go ahead and comment. :)

Another issue we have been having is our dang pet squirrel..


Now there are 3 of the dang things and they are eating all my plants. I had 3 sweet potato plants growing so big and now they are just twigs. We had 12 pears growing on our pear tree and the squirrels ate all but..

Next, SCHOOL STARTED! Can you tell Im just a little bit excited. Im not sure whos more or the kids! The kids were counting down the days and kept asking when they could get there backpacks out and ready! Aubreys teachers name is Mrs. Corbin. She seems really nice and Aubrey likes her. Aubrey also is lucky to have her cousin Madison in her class with her. (DEAR TEACHER: These girls like to talk and talk and talk and talk. THE END) lol
Weston is also enjoying his teacher, Mrs. Mender. He loves being in 3rd grade and having some friends in his class too! Im sure they both will do very well this year.

Tomorrow is Alans birthday. We are doing a small graveside memorial for him today! Sure do miss that boy!

Yesterday, we wanted to do something fun and different with the family. We were gonna go up to the Pinal mountains but that plan fizzled. So we opted to go to a museum..well that was to expensive for what it was..SOOO then we decided to do lunch at Petes Fish and Chips. Well that couldnt work since they arent open on Sundays. Well then we decided to try the new place by our house called Costa Vida. Well we pull up and they arent open on Sundays either. Taco Bell was our end result. It was very tasty though! ;) Then Aubrey requested we go inside Petco and see the animals.

We were in there for over an hour.

Sage especially had fun! We started out looking at the fish and boy you should have seen Sages face and her excitment. It was so cute! Next we looked at the birds and even got to hold one. The bird was mocking us and showing off. Very funny! Maybe someday we can get one.

SOMEDAY... not now!

Pictures will come soon! Ive been using the laptop usually and we dont save the pictures on this computer. TTFN

Heres a funny thing Aubrey said yesterday--

We have our insta-set pool up and its a few years old and not in so good shape. We couldnt figure out why it was loosing so much water everyday..we thought maybe because the kids splashed it out or dumped it. But then Aubrey had her theory..."Maybe its hybernating". (me and Tony look at each other thinking what the heck) and then Aubrey continued "you know when the water goes up to the clouds". Then we started laughing cause we realized what she meant was EVAPERATION. lol!

Another story that happened like a year ago--

The kids were riding there bikes out front and Weston had ran over our Lantana plant. Aubrey being the little tattle tail she is came and said "mommy, Weston ran over the Hannah Montana plant"!

Shes so cute..
