Jackalopes, Sleep (or lack of) and Dinner

This morning Hayley was eating breakfast and randomly said, "I like Jackalopes. They're good. I like to eat em'."  I sat staring at her w/ a confused look on my face trying to figure out what she was talking about when I realized she was talking about CANTALOUPES!! Ha ha ha!! That kid cracks me up!

Riley slept last night from 11:30-6:50!! That would be even more exciting if Hayley wouldn't have come down to wake me up at 2:30 saying she was soaking wet. I know I will get a whole night's sleep again. . . one day. : ) 

Tra and I got to go out to dinner last night w/ our third wheel (Riley) and had the best time. Riley slept in her carrier the whole time. LOVE that girl. Valentine's day is extra special to us b/c it is our engagement day! It's so fun to think back on that night. He surprised me w/ a proposal after a mere 6 weeks of dating--I know CRAZY. And topped it off with taking me out to dinner and BOTH of our families were there to celebrate with us!!  It was one of my red letter days for sure. And that was 7 years ago---it seems like it was just yesterday!

That is hilarious. Jackalopes. That had to be really confusing!

Happy Engagement-ersary! :) That has to be a new word! I love those special memories!

Miss you Shelma! I love Jackalopes! So funny! Yesterday Ely told me the longest story about Pockums, who happens to be his friend, a robot, living under a tree in our backyard.. these are the most precious moments ever! I can't imagine your state of sleep with 3. Hang in there!

I loved catching up on your blog this afternoon (gotta love nap time). The stories of life with 3 were hilarious!
