Home/ Kiki and Kevin

This is my beautiful soccer champ! Ella scored a goal today all by herself! GO, ELLA!!!!
I am sitting in beautiful Charleston today waiting to fly home. YAY! I can't wait! The cast opens tonight and I will miss seeing their first show but I am glad to be going home. I know they'll be brilliant.

One piece of incredible news I've been waiting to share...Kiki is pregnant! We found out a few weeks back and I've been waiting for the green light. Kevin and Kim (Kiki) are keeping a blog about their journey through pregnancy and I've added it today in my favorite sites column over there.

In other family news...Sam is officially potty trained. And by potty trained, I mean not wearing diapers and learning how to go in the backyard with our dog and pee just like she does. He's hilarious. In all seriousness, Sheryl has been so consistent with her Spiderman poo-poo treats. It really works.

Speaking of back yards...does anyone remember that song..."Fish and chips and vinegar, vinegar, and chips and vinegar, red peppers are hot". Remember that? And there are different verses that go over each other kind of like a round...?

Well, I am married to the woman who knows more about random and obscure songs than anyone in the entire world. She and I were kidding around with some friends the other night singing that song until we realized that I had learned different words to one of the verses...

Her version: "Don't put your trash in my trash can, my trash can, my trash can...don't put your trash in my trash can, my trash can's full."

My version: "Don't put your trash in my backyard, my backyard, my backyard...don't put your trash in my backyard, my backyard's full!"

I never, EVER thought about how hilarious my version was...and I am almost POSITIVE that it's the one I learned back in 3rd grade at Wylie Elementary School...which somehow makes it even funnier. Trash in my backyard? Really? Your back yard's full, huh? hmm.

I'll leave you with that bit of randomness on this lovely Saturday. I can't wait to see my family!

Okay, I am totally cracking up because I can hear you both having the whole conversation and then you realizing what you had sung all those years. This type of humor is our total Seinfeld episodes...yeh, unfortunately I could make up a whole new verse...something about cow crap...oh wait can you say that word on a blog??? Missing you both, D
Oh by the way, how's The Shack going? I am really excited you are reading it.

The GREAT Peggy Drennan at Taylor taught it as "Don't put your dust in my dustpan....." :)

So glad Sam and Bear are having fun in the backyard!

I had never heard this random song til my girls learned it in music class. They learned the "trash in my backyard" version, which I thought was weird too!
