My Bucket List

A "Bucket List" went around my office the other day. (For those of you who haven't seen The Bucket List, I highly recommend it. Anyway. ) A Bucket List is a list of things that you're supposed to do before you die - I guess. Luckily I haven't done everything on this list, or else I'd get all nervous. I tweeked a few of the items, because I didn't like leaving so many things left out. Poor left out things.

Welp - Enjoy. Don't ask tooooo many questions.

( x ) Made a date go blind
( x ) Skipped school (with my best friends girl friend. We caught him sunbathing in the backyard. Life’s tough when you’re sick)
( ) Watched someone die (but I went to a Cemetery once)
( x ) Been to Canada. Eh. Long story.
( ) Been to Mexico (it’s pronounced “me`HeeCo”)
( x ) Been to Florida
( x ) Been on a plane (duh. I’ve been to Florida. You can’t drive to an island!)
( x ) Been lost (all my life)
( x ) Been on the opposite side of the country (anywhere outside Utah is the “opposite side of the country”)
( x ) Gone to Washington , DC (During Clinton’s impeachment hearings. It. Was. Awesome.)
( x ) Swam in the ocean
( x ) Cried yourself to sleep (Kalli ate my last Snickers bar)
( x ) Played cops, chefs, and robbers. I cook to make friends. Then I steal their guns and kill em.
( x ) Recently colored with crayons (All the time)
( x ) Karaoke Genius
( x ) Played chess for a meal
( x ) Done something you told yourself you wouldn't (5 1/2 years and counting)
( x ) Laughed until some kind of meat product came out of your nose
( x ) Destroyed a snowflake (with my bare hands)
( x ) Showered in the rain (for reals – good times)
( x ) Beaten up Santa Claus
( x ) Made out under the mistletoe
( x ) Ordered the sun to rise (works every time)
( x ) Toyed with Hydrogen and Oxygen atoms in a playful fashion (Blown bubbles)
( x ) Gone ice-skating (hence the bad back)
( x ) Been skinny dippin outdoors / indoors / it’s aaaalllll gooood
( x ) Been in the movies
( x ) Watched a marathon on TV once
( x ) Pie-dived (way too fun)
( ) Bungee Jumped – no, but I did fly a plane solo
( x ) Been so happy you cried (found my emergency Snickers bar)

Wake Up, Ryan!

Ryan stayed out way too late with his buddies.

Have you ever seen Snow White? If you've ever had that blessed opportunity, then you KNOW how high that woman can sing. It's like Disney captured the voice-over in a helium cocoon. Anyhow - Meg and Kalli watched it the other day and Megan decided that she would like to try her hand at being Snow White. This is the result...

Whenever Kalli walks through the kitchen, she ALWAYS checks the garbage can. She'll look for clues that would tell her what treats mom and dad ate last night - what toys we were planning on getting rid of - and most of all, what drawings accidentally got thrown in the trash. (how DOES that happen?)

Well, I guess Kalli got tired of lecturing mom and dad on not throwing away any of her creations, because she put a disclaimer on her latest work of art...

She's learning that this whole "Reading & Spelling" thing has its benefits. Oh ya, you do NOT want to be cross-examined by Kalli after she finds a Twix wrapper in the garbage. There's NO skirting around when candy's involved. I'm planning on her retiring me and Jodie when she's 25. I hear that expert lawyers don't come cheap!
