Right now I'm enjoying a peaceful house because my two lovely little children have not been the best best of friends. I think it's a byproduct of over stimulation of this time of year mixed with not enough sleep and I'm hoping it's going to pass because they are really hard to be around right now with all the bickering and whining. I've even had afternoons when they aren't allowed to play with each other! Aack!
Two stories for you:
I lost my kids in Wal-Mart. Laine wanted to get some fruit snacks and I needed to get some almond bark. These two items are on separate isles about 25 feet away from each other. So I showed Laine where the fruit snacks are and showed her where the almond bark is. Physically took her to both places. Dropped them off at the FS, whet to do my thing. 60-90 seconds later I'm done I go and look for them...no where to be found. Gone. I stroll down the center aisle a few aisles each way, no kids. This is in the town I teach in so I had seen several people I knew so I wasn't too worried I thought someone would probably help me out. Then I heard my name on the intercom "Heather Williams please come to Customer Service your party is waiting" at least it didn't say "We will now hand out the Mother of the Year Award to Heather Williams for losing her kids in Wal Mart, Ms. Williams, please come claim your ham". When I got to CS there my children were not crying but smiling, a mom of a kid I taught at my former school was there with them saying what a great job they did knowing all their information...FYI if you get lost in Wal Mart you get all 3 boxes of fruit snacks you haves in your little hands! AND great big hugs!
words that came out of my mouth in 5th/6th PE the other day when asked a question about a game we were about to play:
No...you may not hold your balls with both hands.
yes I said that...then I stopped and laughed about it and acknowledged it, how can you not with that age group. So we all had a big laugh and then moved on. It is the best thing I've ever said in a PE class.

About 4 weeks after I started using all the stuff they told me to use:
Taken Last week:
Here is what I am using:
A face wash without any oil in it Regular Cetaphil not the one for oily skin, funny enough it has oil in it.
RX- Epiduo it has benzoil perozide and whatever Retin-A is in it. It's awesome!
At night I use a Glycolic acid face wash from Jan Marini. You can get it cheaper on ebay.
At night I also use an antioxidant face cream from Revale. It's expensive, but has won awards and every woman in my dermatologist's office uses it. Again, look on ebay to find it cheaper.
Oh and please excuse my right eye in those pictures, it had decided to go off and party the night before those pictures, and is actually still misbehaving and partying all night long! It looks terrible!

If you don't know Laine she is quite possibly the happiest child ever. She is never disrespectful, never mean. Rarely in a bad mood. She has a personality of her own and if teachers at her school were to describe her they would say she is "just Laine" because there is no one else like her. I never knew that until she became school age and I became her PE teacher. I don't want this year to break her spirit. I don't want school to become a place she doesn't want to be. Please God, let this be a beginning of school thing and PLEASE let her find some good friends in her class. My heart! It hurts!

I always wear a watch I mean 24 hours a day I NEVER take it off. That means it's fancy.
I always do and put up all my laundry at once.
I always fix supper during the week.
I always go to the doctor as soon as I feel a little bit sick.
I always cry when I get really mad.
I always smile when my children walk into the room
I sometimes get tickled when Bowen gags and barfs for some strange reason, sometimes I get mad.
Sometimes I wish Bowen was still a mamma's boy.
Sometimes I wish I didn't have to work.
I sometimes think I've turned my kids into me. They automatically want a list of what we are going to do and then what is going to come next! Imagine me, liking that!
Sometimes I still get a large Diet Coke extra ice at Sonic happy hour even though I'm not supposed to.
Sometimes I still look at my kids and get teary eyed at how incredibly beautiful and smart they are.
I am never too patient.
Never will you find me in bed past 9:00
I will never tell your secrets.
I will never go to bed without brushing my teeth or washing my face
I could never drink too much water
I would have never guessed I would be a runner.
I am never not reading a book or listening to a book on my ipod.

Speaking of Leslie's friends here are two girls that I would steal I I got the chance! Erica and Kelley are SO much fun and the best is they love books as much as I do and the VERY best part is they are just as big Harry Potter nerds as I am (Leslie too) so it's great to get together with them and talk books and HP! They are awesome!
So, I am a proclaimed blog stalker and I got to meet two people's blog I stalk! Jenni who I check up on periodically was there she and her husband were super nice! And I'd like to give a shout out to Caleb for being the best usher ever! http://jennibro.blogspot.com/
Here is a picture of Bowen that I absolutely love! He got Mimi's camera and started taking pictures, pretty soon we see him taking off toward the front of the church where the amazing photographer was taking pictures. I started making my way up there to break that whole thing up because what professional photographer wants a 4 year old up in her area, well apparently this one! She just let him step right in front of her and snap a pic! Too funny!

A couple of nights ago Laine and I were looking at pictures of updos for the wedding. She saw a little girl with a bob and a cute barrette, she said she wanted that hairdo! So, we looked at some more styles and she saw another little girl with a swing bob and she said that is the style I want for the wedding! So that is what she got! I think it's the cutest thing ever!

Vegas was fabulous! Here are some of my favorite Vegas things:
* Blue Man Group
* walking the strip everyday (take tennis shoes when you go)
* looking, and looking and looking and always seeing something new
* being there with someone who knows the ropes, thanks Mom!
When I left I decided to take a figurine with me and take pictures of him at different landmarks in Las Vegas so Laine and Bowen would have something fun to see from my trip. I sent them from my phone.
