Aren't they the cutest ever? Makes you want to eat them, right?! Jen's visiting teachers stopped by tonight to drop these off. They are cherry cupcakes with cherry frosting decorated to look like ladybugs! There are even THREE of them! One for Jen, Dustin AND Zachary! One of Jen's visiting teachers has got some serious baking skills - every month we get to partake of another yummy creation.
Two thumbs up from Zach!

So I have no idea why blogger is rotating this image - because the image isn't rotated on my camera or my computer. But anyways - apparently there is a WARRANT OUT FOR JEN'S ARREST. Jen actually started laughing when she read this. First off - anyone know where Hondo, Texas is? Google maps shows us it is just east of San Antonio. Second off - the postcard was addressed to a person with a different middle/maiden name than Jen.
Urgh...here we go again. I guess a phone call to the Hondo Constable are in order tomorrow. I am kinda pissed I have to use my dime to make the long distance phone call...this is hardly worth the 10 minutes of cell phone time! Wonder how many other people with the name "Jennifer Gray" got this same postcard?!

We had a blast. The park opened at 8am, but we didn't arrive until about 10am - we all slept in and enjoyed the morning a bit. Disneyland was a bit more crowded than California Adventure was the day before...most "popular" rides had about a 45 minute wait. The first ride we headed towards was the yellow submarine for Zach - they changed it so it was all "finding Nemo" style. Zach loves fish - so we figured he would like this ride.
He was just about to fall asleep before we waited our 45 minutes to get on - we managed to keep him awake and he loved the ride. He completely crashed and fell asleep as soon as we put him back in the stroller - for a good hour and a half. During that time Jen's parents watched Zach sleep while we headed on Space Mountain.
Next stop - Its a small world - just recently re-opened. This was the first ride we could physically see Zach getting excited for. He loved all the trees out front, and the clock and moving parts. He was intently watching all the characters and trying to figure out how they were moving!
At this point it started to get a bit colder and start to rain. So we got out our rain jackets and headed for Mr. Toads wild ride....and then it was time for for another merry-go-round ride!!!
What kid doesn't want to try and be king? Zach used all his might and was unable to pull the sword out but will keep trying with future trips to Disneyland.

We are pleased to report our taxes are finished and submitted - please send our sizable refund ASAP. I know when we first started filing “jointly” you always expected us to send you more money. That didn’t last long - we got smart and bought a house and have continued to own a house for the past seven years – which changed the situation so you would start paying us back yearly. With Mr. California Tax Man deciding not to pay out refunds this year because he claims his pockets have holes in them and there is no more money, we don’t want you to get any ideas (or cut holes in your pockets). We will take measures in regards to our withholdings to insure next year you don’t owe us as large of a refund. Oh – and when are we getting a stimulus check? Our savings account is eagerly waiting.
Lately we have been trying to come up with more ideas of foods that Zachary can eat. Today for lunch we decided to give him some Dinty Moore beef stew. He loved it. He also LOVED to make a mess with it AND push the food onto the floor. Every time Jen would tell him "No" or "don't do that"......Zach just LAUGHED and did it FASTER!
Hmmmmmmm.....is this the result of Zach refusing to take his morning nap....or his ever growing personality starting to shine even brighter!?!

We are pleased to inform you that your childrensplace.com order has shipped as detailed below. Unfortunately, however, one or more of the items you ordered were not available in the quantity you ordered. The missing items were cancelled off your order since we do not back order items. You will not be charged for them.
So I look at what of my eight items actually shipped.....THREE! No joke. Even more ironic is those three items that did ship are actually for Peyton and baby LOVATO!!!!
Two thumbs down for online shopping with Children's Place. Oh - a visit to the store at a local mall this weekend as another disappointment as well. We bought a pair of sunglasses for Zach; the price one for $3.50 or two for $5. We search and search and search and only find ONE pair of sunglasses in his size. I go to pay for the one pair and the sales lady says, "you know, it is buy 2 for $5, sure you don't want to pick up another pair". I respond with - "I would if you actually had another pair in your store - you don't have any more sunglasses in this size". She smiles and says "oh, sorry". Make that four thumbs down for shopping with Children's Place.
