Basal not Basil

A couple of weeks ago I met with my dermatologist and she biopsied the crap out of me. I got the call Monday that it was positive for Basal Cell Carcinoma (insert insanely huge eye roll). All of my years of tanning beds and being a sun worshiper finally caught up with me. Let me tell you, I am super stoked about it.

I had two spots removed. One on my chest that will leave a beautiful scar of remembrance. Can't really hide it, unless I wear turtle necks for the rest of my life. The other one is much bigger and it is on my back/neck area... It's like where your shirt hits your neck. Or in my case, where my sports bra likes to rub up on. 

Here's some pictures for your viewing pleasure....


This is my chest

Giant hole

All stitched up

So it's gone. Which is completely awesome. BUT we noticed some pre-cancerous spots on my face. I have a cream for it. And it's going to be ugly.

Moral of the story:
Don't tan and wear sunscreen. Especially if you are pale skinned freckled...

10....I think


Once again, one of my precious spawn children decided that it was time for them to have another birthday. This time it as Ashlee, and she turned 10.

10, as you know, is a VERY big deal. Your no longer a single digit number and basically just all around cooler. You can tell people proudly that you are 10, because it just sounds so much better than 9.

 My little animal loving softball playing vegan hipster had a long list of things that she wanted to do for her birthday. Lets just say that it was quickly cut down to be more manageable... for me. Brian took her out to the batting cages and spent hours there. She loves anything and everything softball. So hours at the batting cages is heaven.

 So my kids are super weird and they love scary movies. They have filled the their Netflix account with all sorts of scary creepy movies. I have an on going fight with Tate about watching the movie Annabelle. It's about an evil doll or something, another story for another time. Anyways, Ashlee really wanted to see the original Poltergeist. So Brian and Ash drove all over town to find it and actually found one! So after a birthday dinner of Hooters takeout and cake we all sat down to watch it. The girls loved it, and now they watch it all the time. We have also decided that Carole Ann looks a lot like Hayden...

They're here....
She had a great birthday. She got tons of clothes from Justice, another tablet thing, dog things and other things that make 10 yr olds happy.

My Spawn

My kids are getting older.  And to be completely honest,  I'm kinda stoked about it. It makes life so much easier! 

Except that I really believe that some evil demonic life force has invaded their bodies and shows it's hateful face quite regularly. Some days they are fun and nice and just all around good kids! But most days, they just kinda suck. Did I say most days? Cause I really meant to say was all days.

 If only you could hear what goes on in this house. You too would believe that some type of evil has moved in.

Yep, I am now the proud owner of 5 Banshees and a Gremlin.

5 super moody sarcastic Banshees...

Here's a couple of examples that have happened recently...

Hayden, she's.....

Ok, she is my most annoying kid that I have. (whatever, you all have one kid that annoys you more) She only knows how to have a conversation at a screaming level. She's SUPER loud!!! And she doesn't ever ever ever EVER stop talking. And gets right up in your face to do it.  Oh, she is also my biggest whiner... But we forgive her cause she's super cute.  Anyways, one day she was asking (screaming) for something and it went like this:

Haynie: "MOM CAN I HAVE BLAH BLAH BLAH?!?!?!?!?!!?"

Me:" Not right now, maybe a little later..."

Haynie: (lowers voice into deep whisper) "You are dead to me."

Me: Just stares at her as she runs off...

Clearly it's a sign! Call a priest right away!

Ashlee, my animal loving vegan hippie (she's only vegan on certain days... she's confused) She came into this world so happy!! She now ranks #2 on the most annoying list. She's super sarcastic and will fight you to the death for the rights of her animals. (2 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 rats) She hasn't hit the level of sarcastic righteousness of Reese (that's a tall tree to climb), but does it in her own way that is still annoying.

Me: "Ash! I told you to put the freaking dishes away!"

Ash: (not caring and rolling her eyes) "oops"
turns and walks off

Me: "I guess I'm going to forget to feed you dinner tonight. Oops."

Ash: sneers at me and laughs it off

Me: Finds whatever I can find near me and throws it at her, 5 points if it hits her head.

Please allow me to pull my inner Rodney Dangerfield out, straighten my tie and bug my eyes and scream "I GET NO RESPECT AROUND HERE!!!"

OK, I will admit some blame in this. I did give them 50% of my sarcastic personality... BUT it's another sign!!! She's possessed.

They are all possessed.

And now they are wailing and gnashing their teeth because I haven't fed them lunch yet.

Summertime 2014

Summer sucked. We hated it. We didn't do a darn thing, like at all. No vacation to MI or someplace fun. We barely went to the pool. I think that we made it maybe twice. Jude was a freaking nightmare at the pool and I just didn't want to deal with him.

All we did this summer was work on the house. As in house, I mean the back of the house (kitchen, fam room etc... the back of the house).

So it sucked.

Not very memorable.

Maybe the worst summer ever.

So bad that I just searched my computer for some pics to prove that it was the worst summer ever, and I couldn't even find any...

JamFest Louisville

We have entered the world of competitive cheerleading.

I've decided to call it synchronized tumbling, because that's really what it is. Cheerleading sounds soo.... stupid? They're not cheering. (GO SPARTANS!!! Omg, my fav SNL skits) They bounce and flip around all at the same time.

It's competitive synchronized tumbling

With drag queen make-up...

And glitter, lots of spray on glitter...


Over the weekend we got to experience JamFest! It was held in the Louisville Convention Center. It was actually kinda cool seeing all of the different teams compete for some title and trophy.

Reese's team took 1st in their division. They were amazing. I'd show you the video but I guess that I signed a waiver saying that I wouldn't put any video online. So... Yeah. Sorry... Oh, yeah. Fail on my part, I completely forgot my big camera. So all my pics are iPhone pics...

I brought Tate with us, because you can put her in your pocket


The entire team

My Little Man Rocking Out

Here's my little man! He loves to rock it out. This video is from early August and I've already shared it all over facebook and instagram, but here you go again. Your welcome.

As you can hear, Tatum was having a HUGE meltdown. It just makes this video just a little more awesome than it already is....
