Because I Have Too Much Free Time

One of Samantha's favorite blankets got a rip in it some time ago and just the other day she came running at nap time because that blanket was nor ripped in half. She was so distraught and thought that I should put it back together. I didn't think that was really the best thing because if you saw this little blanket, you'd realize that it's pretty thin and not very big. But, I decided we'd try to make a little knotted doll out of the fabric scraps. We ended up at the fabric store buying fleece fabrics to make a few more knotted dolls as well. I have to practice making a doll out of that material before I even go near her blanket! Maybe I'll have 1 doll made by next year!

Winning Samantha's Love

At nap time today:

Me: I love you Samantha; See you after nap time
Sam: I love you too Mommy
Me: Thank you honey
Sam: I love Daddy too; do you love Daddy?
Me: Yes, I love Daddy too
Sam: Does Jakey love Daddy?
Me: Yes, Jakey loves Daddy and Mommy and Daddy love Jakey
Sam: I love Dora too. Dora brought us cookies. I looove Dora! [Dora is our real estate agent!]

Battlestar Galactica

Battlestar Galactica is a popular TV show, it is also in its last season. If you have never seen it you can catch them all on DVD (below), or just look at the hot chicks who star in the series sporting bikinis here. It really is up to you.
The second war against the Cylons is over and The Twelve Colonies have been destroyed. Now Commander Adama of the Battlestar Galatica and President Laura Roslin lead a ragtag fleet of refugees in a supposed search for the fabled lost thirteenth colony, Earth. However, the dangers they face are many which compound an already difficult situation. In addition to the Cylons hunting and attacking the fleet in space, their infiltrator units carry out a more subtle plot even as their former unwitting pawn, Gaius Baltar, helps in the hunt for them while hiding both his own guilt and the strange presence that haunts his every thought. If that wasn't enough, the fleet also faces internal political conflict in which the rabble-rousing figure, Tom Zarek, is merely the loudest dissenting voice. In the midst of these trials however, clues begin to appear that suggest that Adama's simple bluff about Earth may be more truthful than anyone could have guessed.

Selena Gomez Fashion

I hit an all new low. I woke up hung-over, under my desk with a X-Men comic stuck to my head. One of my 6 crack babies was passed out at my feet, next to the jug of whiskey I drank last night. For about 30-seconds, I looked at my life and thought about turning over a new leaf, but that seemed like too much effort. The leaf, my leaf would be just too heavy to lift. So I figured if this is rock bottom, lets chisel a little further down and oggle some more 16-year-old Disney stars.
I also figured since published these pictures first, that makes them in the wrong not me. I'm just pointing out how screwed up the world has become because of the Internet.
So here is the anti-Miley-Cyrus -- Selena Gomez in a bikini. There is nothing racy, wrong or even pervy about these pictures..
You may remember Gomez from Barney & Friends, before she was scooped up by the evil Disney machine. Gomez has appeared on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and Hannah Montana before landing her own leading role on Wizards of Waverly Place. She was also part of the Miley Cyrus/Nick Jonas You Tube fight.
Remember you clicked a link that reads Selena Gomez Bikini Pictures so don't get mad at me! More pictures after the jump

Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson Cat walk

Lets be honest none of us would care about or be looking at Samantha Ronson bikini pictures if she wasn't banging Lindsay Lohan, but since she is...Here are some pictures of Lindsay and her gal-pal in bikinis. The Ronson shots are kind of hard to see. The question is, is she wearing a Care Bears bathing suit?
Actually we have a little bikini contest goingon today. First there is this hilarious butt shot of Jennifer Aniston, I bet they don't teach you about this in acting school?
Then there is GILF Sarah Palin. Watch Sarah Palin Swimsuit Video from the 1984 Miss Alaska Pageant.
And as promised Lohan and Ronson...

Lindsay Lohan Skinny Fashion

I guess an all fish diet works, because Lindsay Lohan is looking crack-thin-skinny and pretty hot if you ask me. Here she is on a Miami beach in a bikini, but I do not see her number 1 accessory -- Samantha Ronson.

Samantha Burke Pregnant Fashion

Here are two of the Samantha Burke pregna
nt-bikini pictures that have hit the web. Back in July Burke's lawyer told TMZ that she was pregnant with Jude Law's fourth baby. The baby is due October 6th.
Burke has been "chronicling" her pregnancy on Photobucket. See all the pictures here (site NSFW or people under the age of 18).
"Ms. Burke can confirm that she did in fact have a relationship with Mr. Law and that she has informed Mr. Law that she is expecting his child later this fall. Since informing Mr. Law of the pregnancy, he has been nothing but responsive and supportive of Ms. Burke and the pregnancy." read more »

Emma Roberts Fashion

Since Selena Gomez in a bikini is one of our most
popular "articles" (yeah scary world we live in), let me introduce you to the possible new Gomez/Cyrus -- Emma Roberts. At least Emma is 18, plus she is the niece of Julia Roberts.
Roberts has a few teen/romantic/comedies slated for 2010 including; Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac, Twelve and Valentine's Day -- although Twelve may not be a comedy. I'm not looking it up to make sure!
So for our number 1 customers here at 2snaps, I give you Emma Roberts in a bikini. Those Gomez pictures have to be getting kind of boring by now! read more »

Miley Cyrus Fashion

Is it wrong to sexualize a 16/17-year-old girl?
Perhaps, but before you get out the torches let me remind you that the movie, New Moon, has raked in over $50 million while selling a shirtless Taylor Lautner to thousands of screaming women.
Cyrus caught a whirlwind of crap for showing her back in her infamous Vanity Fair spread, but Summit Entertainment hasn't caught any heat for using a half-naked 17-year-old Lautner in their movie ads and posters. Double standard? Yes!
If thousands of grown women can ogle Lautner on a daily basis, I have no problem posting Miley Cyrus bikini pictures! At least I'm not selling a "Miley Cyrus nipple slip" like the website is! read more »

Selena Gomez Fashion

Selena Gomez turns 18 on July 22. That's not too far off. We have to wait until November for Miley Cyrus -- who is more likely to deliver a nip slip or decent, legal, up skirt. It could possibly be the nip slip that breaks the interwebs!
Anywhoo Gomez is busy shooting Monte Carlo with Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy.
The movie follows three young women vacationing in Paris who find themselves whisked away to Monte Carlo after one of the girls is mistaken for a British heiress. Good thing they are not mistaken for Peaches Geldof, instead of Monte Carlo, they would've been whisked away to the methadone clinic.
It is also good to see that Cassidy is still finding work after that Melrose Place mess. I still say they should have never fired Ashlee Simpson.

The Brynner!

For those of you following Brynner the Winner (Kara's nickname), here are a few photos and updates from the past week. When Bryn entered the world she was 2 lbs, 15 oz and 14.5 inches long. She certainly does look like Brynner the Winner in this photo! She's even smiling!For anyone that knows Kara and Josh it comes as no surprise that their daughter is a fighter and has a mind of her own!

On Tuesday Bryn was transferred to the Children's Hospital in Denver. While challenging for Kara and Josh since it is an hour from their home, they report feeling really good about the level of care she is receiving at the hospital in Denver. There are a lot of questions on the table about Bryn's health and she has been through a lot of tests over the past 48 hours to rule out and info gather on a lot of things. An Echo Cardiogram came back showing that Bryn's little heart if fully developed, so that is very good news.

Kara and Josh are doing well considering and are working hard to keep Avery's schedule as normal as possible. Melissa is heading out there for 10 days and will be followed by Josh's mom and Mammo. Between family and their awesome friends out in CO they are all in good hands. Kara has been excited about getting some time to hold Bryn.

First Day of School

Samantha was very excited to go to school today! She went equipped with her brand new Dora backpack! Jake and I were only there for 5 minutes when she was saying "bye Mommy" and waving me out the door! I think that Jake would have liked to stay and play too!

It has been funny only having Jake at home today. We went to the gym after dropping off Samantha and it felt funny bringing only Jake into the gym. When we came home the house seemed really quiet. Jake is usually pretty loud, but I guess only when Samantha is home! We often laugh that Jake prefers to play with the baby dolls and kitchen toys, but today he went right for the Lego table and the cars. He played for a long time building and driving the cars. I can't say that he didn't play with the babies at all because he did pretend to feed one of the babies lunch, but that wasn't the first thing that he gravitated to today. Listening to Jake talk today I realized that everything is "blue". I was so proud of him when he picked up a blue Lego and said "blue", but the effect dwindled when he said blue for a green, red and yellow Lego too! But, he is starting to pick up on his colors. I think he really does know things that are blue, but just doesn't know the names of the other colors yet so he just says blue.

We went to pick up Sammy after nap time and when we got to school, she was at her cubby putting on her hat and mittens. Her excited reaction at seeing us quickly turned to dismay as a look passed over her face as if to say "oh man, you are here now? I'm just about to go outside to play!" The teachers said that Samantha had a great day and that she played in the different areas of the classroom, exploring all the centers and making friends. She was a little sad after lunch because she thought I was coming to have lunch with her, but she was distracted by a coloring project and outside time. She even took a good nap and the teacher said she had a hard time waking her up!

She really seemed to have a great day and it helped us that we were able to log in online and view her classroom whenever we wanted. It will be interesting to see if she starts asking if it is a school day since she is only going 2 days a week right now.

Mommy's New Toy!

This is my Christmas present from Chris that I just got because we ended up returning the camera he originally got. I am looking forward to lugging this camera every where! :)

Take Out

This week we decided to try a little something different for dinner. Foster's Market is a restaurant near where Chris works that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as does catering and family meals. We decided to try their family meals, where you place an order the week before and then on Monday you go to Foster's and pick up your week's worth of meals. They have menus for the whole month, so we picked the week that we liked best for January/February and decided to try it! Here are all of our meals pre-packaged for us.

Last night we had spaghetti with Chicken Arugula Meatballs and Arugula Pesto which was very good. This week each meal also comes with a salad and cookies for dessert. This is what we are having for the rest of the week:
Slow Roasted Pork Tacos
Mom's Meatloaf
Grilled Veggie Ratatouille
Eggplant Parmesan
Sure this is all stuff that we could make at home, but it's kind of fun bringing it home! We figured we had to at least try it once! So far so good. Jake even at some pesto pasta and meatballs for lunch today!

I Didn't See It Coming

This morning I went into Jake's room to get him out of bed, and the first thing I noticed when I walked into the room was that Jake was naked. Not only did he have his pajamas off, but he also threw his diaper out of the crib. The second thing I noticed was the smell. There was definitely poop in the room, but Jake wasn't wearing a diaper. Quickly I picked the diaper up off the floor to see if there was poop in there; imagining that there was poop on the floor. No poop on the diaper or the floor, but lots of poop in the crib! This was definitely a calculated move as there weren't any traces of poop in the diaper, so it's not like he went and then took off everything and dumped the diaper out in the crib. He has been showing interest in the potty, but I just didn't see this coming! The clincher was that after he went poop, he must have stepped in it because it was all over his feet. Yuck! I stood there in shock for what felt like an eternity. After I came to, I whisked him into a bath. I tested out our new washing machine's sanitary cycle which got the job done! This was a great way to start Samantha's first day of preschool!
