Loved It!

Loved it. . .

. . . That is all.

Actually not quite. . . The whole time I was watching it, I was smiling ear to ear like an idiot. I love them as Bella and Edward. So good job whoever chose the cast.

Tanny Baby Is Growing Up

This past week my little brother Tanner (aka Tanny Baby, Tan Tan, Teeny, and a few others) got asked to Winter Formal! His first dance. . . . That means he's 16. Bleh that makes me want to throw up. . . . and cry. Tan tan has been one of my best friends my whole life. From having Lego wars- where we would make these shelters with dry erase boards and throw legos at each other, to just this Monday when our whole family decided to desert us and us being awesome decided to watch Kung Fu Panda and get Filiberto's. Arizona Burritos anyone??? Oh and I mustn't for get that while we were in the drive thru we were dancing so good to any and every song that came on the radio. Keep in mind WE ARE JONES' and as such have been cursed with having an overwhelming lack of Rhythm. It was so fun and funny. I have a million memories of teeny and most are of him being hilarious. Here are 10 Reasons I Love Tanner. . .

#1) He is the biggest smart a in our family. . . I think it comes from being the youngest and picking up on his older siblings/parents examples.

#2) He is not afraid to look like a schmuck.

#3) His eyebrows. . . they are un-tamable

#4) He is almost always willing to get me a drink

#5) He and I have the same sense of humor. . . but he is actually funny.

#6) He can quote the movie Hot Rod almost perfectly. . . and the Music Man

#7) He and I can tease each other. . . it drives my mom insane, but we are just entertaining ourselves.

#8) He can make some of the most hideous faces. . . like me.

#9) He is just too stinking cute.
(Don't mind the sunflower seeds in my dad's mouth)

#10) He is actually really nice and sweet.
(He is the one on the right pushing the handcart with the little girl on it)

. . . . .

And to think. . . this whole post was started by him getting asked to a dance. Oh how time flies. I love the kid. He's going to do great in life. This is how he got asked and him being way excited.

Yay Tanner!

Sunday Evening Mouse

Today after dinner my little brother tanner went outside to look for his baseball glove. We have this big black box that we put all our athletic equipment in. Out of the corner of my eye I see Tanner jump and scream, "A Mouse!" In a matter of seconds everyone in my family, including my future sister in law, that's right, its official, is standing by the window looking in the big black box. Tanner was tearing everything out of the box quickly, but carefully as to not accidentally pick up the mouse. Eventually all the boys were outside trying to find/kill this little rodent. Then I in brilliance was like,"Oh my gosh let me get my camera so I can post about this!" It was disgusting and sad at the same time.

This is the black box
Look at all the crap we stuffed in it!

Softball gloves, badminton rackets, a kite, bases, etc.

. . . . . .

And now, if you are faint of heart, you should not go any further.

Here is a picture of the culprit. The poor little nasty rat. I almost felt really bad.

I know it is cruel/inhumane to put this picture up, but I felt the post wouldn't be complete without it.

Its kinda no wonder why it decided to live there, it was dirty, there was a large stash of dog food near by, and it had its very own guard dog. Sounds like a good deal to me, Until you get caught and killed by my dad.

I find it necessary to add that in the event of taking these pictures my brothers, brothers in law, and my very own father tried to push me into the box with the dead mouse. One went so far as to physically pick me up and hover me above it.

Our neighbors probably thought I was being murdered because of the screaming.

The were calling it "The Boo Box" like from Hook.
