The Heat Must be Getting to Me

The heat must be getting to me. I think I'm hallucinating. I'm seeing "Bat Bunny", "Cheer Princess", and "Super Baby" in my livingroom!

Yikes, I know it's hot outside but, boy oh boy. We've taken regular dress up to a whole new level this summer.

Super Baby here wears her shield as a diaper. Bat Bunny, up above, has teeth that are able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. And Cheer Princess keep all of her subjects peppy and in good spirits.

Please notice that Spiderman is a recent graduate. The heat must be getting to me...or maybe its getting to them!

Feelin' Hot, Hot, Hot!

It was "7th Circle of Hell" hot out today! We headed over to Hoover for a Rugby tournament today. My Bro-in-Law Blasen was playing but it was so hot we didn't stay long enough to see his game. We visited with my sister Sara, him, and the kiddos for about 45 mins. before the heat did us in. We poured our melted bodies back into the van and headed home. I love summer in Alabama but, there are days when going outside is just not doable - ugh. Today was one of those days!

10 Days Without Corndogs

10 days ago Kallie got her tonsils and adenoids taken out. She was a real trooper and has had no real problems. A tough girl!

BUT, she's had to eat only soft foods for 10 whole days. She's been in desperate need of a corndog. Desperate need.

She's asked at least twice a day since the day of the surgery for one. Today is day 10 - Enjoy your corndog sweetie!

The other Jennie Lee Vaughn...spooky

So, I'm the only one working in the office today. Needless to say, it's 3:09 on a Friday and I'm bored senseless. I've been on the internet passing the time after working on school work, listening to music and watching a movie on my ipod. Anyway, here's what I found when I "Googled" my name...

There is another Jennie Lee Vaughn out there an apparently she is an actress. She's been in a bunch of stuff (I've mostly never heard of). I, of course, never assumed I was the only Jennie Lee Vaughn out there but it is really weird seeing someone else with your exact name.

I'm sure she's nice and all but it gives me a little shiver to think about it. Plus, I wonder how many more Jennie Lee Vaughns are out there in the world? Yikes, now I'm freaking myself out just a little...

Question - Is there someone out there with your exact name? Who?

That's better

OK, the text is now legible. I'm still not 100% pleased but it is better. I'll probably keep fiddling with it but for now, I'm done.

Sorry for the background!

Sorry, I janked up the background. I hate blog backgrounds in which you cannot see all of the text! So, of course, I created a blog with just that, pooh! I'm working on fixing it but have run out of time today...maybe tomorrow.

Seattle - Harbor Tour

While we were in Seattle we took a harbor tour. Both K and I love the water so it was a fun, relaxing way to see the city. (We walked our butts off that week!) Here are some of the photos (of the harbor tour, not our butts)...

Home Again, Home Again, Jiggidty-Jig

We are HOME! I'm so happy to be home, I love home!

Don't get me wrong Seattle was awesome, fantabulous, exceptional.

But, I'm glad to be home. I missed those monkeys something awful and I realized why K and I have never left them before! For the entire week as we saw new things, ate new food, and generally absorbed life in a Pacific Northwest downtown neighborhood - we continually said, "The kids would love this!" And they would have loved it. Seattle is a great place and really family friendly. We're definitely going back and taking the kids with us! Enjoy some of the week's 2-million pictures...Today - Pike's Place Public Market. My most favorite place in Seattle! We went everyday. If we lived here I'd buy all my produce (and flowers) here!

Sleep-ing in Seattle

Sorry to be out of touch for awhile. K and I are in Seattle, WA for the week. It's our first trip sans kids EVER and we are having a great time. However, we do miss the monkeys terribly! This trip is part vacay, part work as K is here for the National Convention for Sleep Medicine Professionals and I was lucky enough to tag along.

Sidenote: Am I the only one to see the irony of a sleep conference in Seattle (Sleepless in Seattle)? Corny, I know, but I've been laughing about it for a week! Obviously, it doesn't take much to amuse me, eh?

Anyway, we've been here since Friday and love the city! It's just our pace, not to fast and we love the environmental friendliness and outdoorsy lifestyle here. We've spent our time exploring the downtown so far and even got to hook-up with some of K's family as it just so happens it was his uncle Rex's 75th birthday party this weekend and the cousins invited us to the party. We were both able to meet family members for the first time and that was great! A big thanks to the Candland clan for letting some "Country Cousins" join in the celebration for Uncle Rex! Since it was here big brother's party K's mom was up from Utah and we were able to spend some time with her as well.

Alright, enough blogging, I'm on vacation. I'll post some pics later! Love to all, J
