In honor of the first day of Cody being home I thought I would post this Fiona Apple video with Zach Galifianakis that I have been loving. I love that this song is written really low on the piano and that it has amazing dissonant chords. Beautiful. bb

Look at this Christmas tree. Isn't it sad? Me, Cody and Mack went and picked it out on Monday night after Cody's first final. We got it home and started putting the lights on it, only to realize that two strands of lights wouldn't nearly be enough. By that point we were so exhausted the thought of a late night shopping trip made us want to cry, so instead we snuggled on the couch, drank apple cider and stared at out beautifully pathetic Christmas tree.

Every time I have walked past that tree this week I have been sad that we still haven't had enough time (aka 15 minutes) to finish our tree. Cody's finally have only again been brutal, leaving me a single parent for the last month to our crazy non speaking little boy (love you Mack)

I am so excited and am having a hard time believing that after 5:00 today Cody will be finished with his last final and will get over a month off!!! I am so unbelievably happy. Maybe by tomorrow our tree will be trimmed in all its Christmas glory.
We got our tree at Home Depot for something like 25 bucks. Beautiful. Mack liked looking at trees alright, but he really loved waiting till me and Cody weren't looking to try and dart out into the street.

I love my boys.

So remember that time when I told the blogging world that Cody hits on me in his sleep? This still happens frequently, but is not anything new, so I forgo blogging the countless encounters, grit my teeth and bare the rude interruptions of my slumber.

Well blogging world I am ashamed.
You see, all this time I have been thinking that I was a helpless sleeper. Defenseless to my husbands unintentional sleeping harassment. I have been proven wrong.

A few nights ago apparently I strangled Cody in his sleep. S-T-R-A-N-G-L-E-D! don't worry, he is still alive. I guess I just reached over put my hand around his neck, squoze once, and then turned over and went to sleep. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Oh man, I hate to say he had it coming but...

Slumber party anyone?

The Hugh Game

Let me preface this by saying that me and Cody are huge nerds. Sometimes on Fridays we spice up our day by ... playing games of course. Not halo, or wii, because we are big nerds remember? So instead we play made-up word games of sorts. In the past we have played "Quote movies wrong" day.

.. 'Mama always said, life is like a shooting rocket, you never know what you're going to get'
This is mildly entertaining,

But my favorite made up game by far is the Hugh Game. You chose a song and replace the word 'you' with the name 'Hugh' and then see who can find the funnier fit. Sound lame? Oh, well I love it so much that I would gladly name my next boy Hugh if Hugh Huffaker didn't sound so hideous. Then I could play this game all day every day. ... oh the joy

-Hugh make me feel like a natural woman

- Hugh spin me right round baby right round. Like a record baby....

-I had the time of my life and I've never felt this way before... and I owe it all to Hugh.

-I never felt that I'd meet somebody like Hugh... and I want to fall in love, with Hugh. (Chris Isaak anyone ;) Jade? Alyssa?)

Oh the possibilities are endless. Does anyone out there want to join us? Can you one up me in the Hugh game?
