The house was a little too quiet this afternoon.  Then I found Harrison with my round brush in hand and open toothpaste in the other…he was doing his hair!



Homemade… September 14, 2008

I just made this for Harrison.  I did a double batch thinking my Kool-Aids were different colors — silly me, they were both red.  LOL.  Easy to make and cheap!


1 1/4 cup flour

1 pkg Kool-Aid

1/4 cup salt

Mix together.  Add a cup of boiling water.

1 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil

Knead well, add as much flour as needed to get the playdough consistency.  Keep in an air-tight container in fridge.  Lasts months.


Sheesh! Kids DO say the darndest things! September 12, 2008

This morning I heard Brian saying “Holy Cow.  Wow.”  I asked him what was up.  Harrison and Brian were watching Super Why on Brians iPhone in our room.  I was in our bathroom getting ready.  Near the beginning of the show they introduce the characters and then ask the kids watching to say their names.  Harrison has been waving lately instead of saying his name like he used to.  Brian said “Tell them your name.”  Harrison looks at him and says VERY matter-of-factly “Dad, they can’t hear me.”  WHAT?  Now, he still thinks they can see him because he waved, but somehow has figured out that they can’t hear him.

He is so funny.  All day long I just am amazed at what he says and what he does. 

His favourite letters are C D M K.  He walks around talking about them all day.  He is counting to 20 pretty well by himself.  He forgets a few numbers.  The alphabet, if I show him in a book he can say most of them without prompting.  He is starting recognize some by sight on other things as well. 

I’m not telling all of this to brag, but this is our journal and I want to remember what my kids were doing at what ages.  I hope it doesn’t come off as ‘showing off’.

Anyway, I know I’m a slacker poster.  Lots of crap going on here.  Busy with photography.  Busy with life in general. 

WE ARE GETTING A PIANO TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!  I am SO stoked.  I really didn’t think I would get this excited over a piano, but I am super super excited.  It is Brian’s Uncle’s piano and it is just on loan to us, but I can’t wait!  They just called me as the Relief Society Pianist, which is funny since I haven’t played in 10 years, but I’m excited!  I always wanted music in my home for my kids, so this will be great.  I’m sure I will be rusty, but I”m looking forward to it.  You know, I’m just not busy enough, now I need to find time to practice the piano.

Not much else new here.  Brian is home on vacation — today is his last day 😦  I didn’t even get to spend much of his vacation with him 😦 

That’s it from here!

My parents’ eventful night last night

Filed under: Uncategorized — harrisonandmommy @ 12:29 am

I got a phone call this morning at 4:00 a.m.  It was Brian.  He is in Canada getting his Canadian Citizenship and is staying with my parents.  I knew something was up because he called me long distance from his iPhone.  First words out of his mouth “Your parents’ house is on fire.”  WHAT??????

Apparently the drunk neighbour’s garage some how caught on fire.  My parents house was apparently never really on fire, but it burned the fence, the grass, a tree and melted the siding on my parents’ house.  Here are some of the pictures…YIKES!

Four of the most important people in my life were in that house.  That is way TOO scary.

The window in this picture is in my parents’ bedroom.  That is a little too close for comfort.

Grass in the backyard and tree that burned.  The window you see here is where Brian and Sterling were sleeping.

My parents’ house is the one on the right.  The neighbours used to have a garage around that car — it burnt down.

More of the siding on my parents’ house.  That is my sister and my mom.

The neighbour’s cars again.
