a little he said/she said..

a few korb funnies that i dont want to forget too soon..

after searching for what seems like DAYS for the lock kp keeps in his gym bag for the locker room, korb and i had this hilarious conversation..
mommy:  KORB - where is that lock??  think hard buddy! where did you put it?
korb:  im not sure mommy.
mommy:  did you hide the lock?
korb:  {looking puzzled that i would EVEN SUGGEST hiding the lock} uuuuhh.. no.  it isnt BROKEN.

LOL.. oh i see.  he only hides things he breaks.. note to self. =)

while being super lazy at nana and papa's over thanksgiving break.. i heard this conversation between korb and daddy.
daddy:  korb, can i have your loooooooooong cool hair?
korb:  {giving daddy that look.}  its attached.
daddy:  {giggling} OH. well, then, how do i get my hair to be long and cool like yours?
korb:  {shrugging shoulders} you just have to grow it.  like a plant. 

LOL!  like a plant? too funny.  and since november chia-kp has been growing his hair.. like a plant.. =)  i would love to post a picture - but he wont let me near him with the camera.  maybe next month.

my new kitchen!

all i wanted for christmas last year was a NEW kitchen!!  thats not too much to ask for, is it?  well.. not NEW exactly.  i really just wanted to paint the cabinets.  but the icky countertops didnt do them justice so for my birthday - you guessed it.. new countertops!!  the best part is that we did all the work ourselves {with the help of our closest friends of course!  thanks carters, mincheys & randy!} if i can just talk him into a new oven and microwave for valentines day it will be complete!!  =)  the before pics are REALLY old.. like summer-2005-when-we-first-bought-the house-old but we hadnt really change anything since then.  except the fridge and the diswasher.. not even those horrible grapes that we said would be the first thing to go!  4.5 years later.. =) check it out!!

i must admit that ive been begging kp to help me paint the cabinets for years.. YEARS I TELL YA!  but it wasnt until i shared this link to my bloggy buddy's new kitchen that he agreed that he would do it.  thanks amy horton!  love ya!!

with the new appliances! LOVE IT!

im gonna need a list! and i looooooooooove lists

motivation! that’s what i need.. and i think i found it. i just reread this post from this time last year and laughed out loud. at myself.. love it. =) déjà vu. life is so cyclical, isnt it?? anyway, im not sure i actually dedicated a post to half the things on that list but just reading the list sparked memories from each event and thats what its all about, right?? so here goes.. all the things i would like to blog about and probably wont get to half.

• i have adorable pictures from korb, kennedy and macy's birthday parties in the fall that i must share!
• we spent most of thanksgiving week in childress with all the little shoffner grandkids.. but not before we anniversaried a little garage party with the shoffners and the mincheys. its officially a family tradition that we will have to keep up.. and perhaps my favorite part of thanksgiving week. =)
• while we were home for the holiday we took the kids to see santa and then on the annual childress treasure hunt. it was cold out. kp didnt get it. =)
• in early december we spent a weekend in ft worth like we have every year that weve known each other. pat green wasnt there. =( but we had a great time anyway!
• the ugly sweater party was a huge success. again. =)
• kennedy spent the christmas holiday with her other family. that always makes it hard for me to get in the spirit.. so i pretty much did all my shopping on christmas eve. but only because i couldnt put it off another day, or might have. we had a wonderful afternoon/evening with my parents, brother and sister in law. and then another grand celebration at kp's nana's house in grand prairie on christmas day.
• i did do a little shopping before the holiday.. choosing a new truck for kp! i think he loves it.
• somehow i convinced the love of my life to remodel our kitchen during our vacation week together between christmas and new years... 'we have a whole week off!  we can knock out the whole project quickly!' i will let you know when its finished. ;) hmmm..what will i want him to remodel next new year??
• due to the kitchen remodel.. we celebrated nye at the mincheys. i thought i would be sad about the change of venue but it worked out fine and we had a wonderful time!
• this list isnt nearly as witty as last years. =)
• kp and i saw REK at the HOB and it was AWESOME!
• the cowboys won a play off game!
• i turned 33 and my sweet friend alyson welcomed a precious baby boy on 01.11.10 quite possibly the coolest birthday of all times. {it even beats 1.11.77, i must say, but i think its a tie with kyles birthday 4.7.74. numbers are cool.}

i think thats about it.. actually, im sure i missed something.  but thats the point isnt it? old habits die hard. we will see if i can get back on track this year.
