Free Rice

I came across the website and I think it is kinda cool. It's called Free Rice.
You take a vocabulary test and for each word you get right, they donate 20 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program. WARNING: This game may make you smarter. It may improve your speaking, writing, thinking, grades, job performance....

In the first picture, Ryan is helping dad do some demolishing. We are doing some remodeling and making a master bathroom. Yeah! I'm so excited. In the second picture Ryan is in a "cage", and I didn't even put him there, he did it himself.


Well, in the first picture Jacob was suppose to be sitting on the chair eating his cereal off of the table, NOT sitting on the table throwing his food. I like the second picture because it shows his big mischievous eyes.

Key to my Heart

Ok, I know this is really late, but this was my Valentines present from Nick.

Here is the Legend that goes with the necklace:
In the ancient Italian city of Florence there stands the Ponte Vecchio, one of the most romantic bridges in the world. Everywhere you look, there are locks attached to the bridge, placed there by centuries of lovers who have come to declare their undying love.

Legend says if you lock a padlock to the Ponte Vecchio, then throw the key into the waters of the Arno river, your love will be eternally bonded. And as the sun goes down, deepening the Arno to an indescribable shade of red, you will have your sign that your vow has been heard.

The Key to My Heart pendant recreates the romance of the Ponte Vecchio bridge and celebrates your everlasting love.

The 123rd Page

I was tagged by Sarah to write 3 sentences from the 123rd page from the book closest to me. This is from the book- The Melaleuca Wellness guide.

1.Since cold sores are a virus, they don't respond to antibiotics.

2. In 1991, a clinical study by Mayo and Shemesh, revealed the effectiveness of Melaleuca oil for the treatment of this difficult and recurring challenge (they are talking about cold sores)

3. Dab T36-C5(a grade of Melaleuca oil) on the lesions immediately upon detection.

Lovely subject huh?

Now, I tag Erin!

Ryan's First Job

Ryan has his first job, feeding the dog. But, I suppose it wouldn't be called a job, because he doesn't get paid for it, so it would be more like his mandatory volunteer work. So far he really likes it.

Lil' Stinker

This is what I found after I got out of the shower. Mischief always seems to find Jacob, or he looks for it.

Jacob is the one that tossed Ryan's Jeff Gordon car in the toilet as it was flushing. I don't think I've ever stuck my hand down a toilet so fast. Fortunately nothing happened,other than a lost car. Kids make life so exciting!

Super Ryan!

Ryan likes to wear his "cape" and run around the house saying "Super Ryan". Jacob and Rocky enjoy chasing him.
