Scary Art

Happy Halloween! Today I tried to do some art projects. They didn't turn out too well, infact they were completely ruined. One ripped and the other got a nasty ink smudge on it. Ephraim also did some interesting artwork. Somehow he reached up high enough to grab a permanent marker off a shelf. Fortunately for me he stayed away from the walls and only drew on a nearby cardboard box.

Blood is cool. I like blood. You should donate blood. I donated blood today. It was my first time. It was cool. My arm hurts.

I know toddlers aren't always the best eaters, but getting Ephraim to eat food is like pulling teeth. He can be so stubborn. After trying for over an hour to get him to eat some chicken soup, I let him free. Doing his getting into trouble thing, he found a piece of Styrofoam and tried to eat it. He didn't like it very much either.

Bath Time Horrors

My baby man was taking a bath and rubbing his hands in a bar of soap. Then I heard him screaming and turned to see him rubbing his soapy hands all over his face especially in his eyes. I quickly rinsed him with water and I checked the soap package for direction, but there were none about if the soap gets in your eyes. He seems to be fine now. Poor baby man.

Never Wake a Sleeping Baby

As Ephraim was sitting in his high chair eating dinner, or rather sticking his hands in dinner, he started to fall asleep. I washed his hands and face and the applesauce out of his hair, pulled him out of his chair, and changed his diaper. The whole time he stirred a little and whined a little but remained asleep. Then I put him in his crib and put a blaket over him. That's when he woke up and started crying to be let out. Now he is a fully awake baby again.

Happy Other Sheep Day! To celebrate we've made a cake and decorated it with a frosting sheep. I also got some white balloons to decorate as sheep. If you have no idea what I'm talking about read my blog entry posted January 24, and also read John 10:16.

Disney Princesses Part 2: Aurora

Sleeping Beauty has to be my all time favorite Disney Princess. She's beautiful, graceful, and has crazy soprano skills. The movie is just a sweet, classic fairytale. Not to mention Prince Phillip is probably the coolest P.C. out there! He gets to use a sword and slay a dragon! Okay, so he got some help from fairies, big deal. Hey, the Pixie Shtick has no problems with fairies. She's not getting the best merchandise though. With all this new Disney Princess stuff in stores now, each princess has an assigned color. Aurora's is pink. Barbie Pink! I don't have anything against pink, but yikes!

Disney Princess Color Code

Aurora = Pink
Cinderella = Blue
Snow White = Red
Ariel = Purple
Belle = Yellow
Jasmine = Teal

Occasionally they will sell some Pocohantas and Mulan things along with the others, but for the most part its just those six.

Disney Princesses Part 1: Ariel

The Little Mermaid is a tale I have always found to be strange. If you read Hans Christian Anderson, he's just wierd man. I have yet to find a rendition of that story that I really like. But I find the Disney movie to be just down right annoying. I used to like it as a kid, but now I just see Ariel as a rebelious, whiny teenager who has some blaringly bright red hair. Not to mention it totally blows over the entire moral of the story. They did improve on the P.C.'s character (Eric), that jerk. The music isn't bad and I have to admit that Sebastian is pretty cool. Can't deny the crab. And what's wrong with being a little random sometimes.

I Screamed Like a Girl

Tonight, while we were driving home, AHHHHH!!! there was a black widow crawling on my hand. I sreamed and jumped and the widow disapeared. We pulled over and searched the car and Sean found another spider, but I'm pretty sure that wasn't my widow. Scary. We had to drive home knowing the spider was probably still in the car somewhere. And why was it there? Well, while we were moving from Riverside, which is the black widow capital of the universe, Sean put some of our potted plants in the car. After that we saw some spider webs in the car so we figured someone caught a ride. I had no idea until today that that someone might have been a widow. Creepy huh.
