Snowman? What snowman?

Cute Matt awoke the other morning determined to build an outstanding snowman. But who knew it would be such a difficult task. Bless his heart. Where is KR when we need him? Can we fly you out from the east coast to help build one? So Matt knocked part of it down just in case it is not mistaken for something else...

Nothing says "Merry Christmas" like a dead Christmas tree..

I believe we have found our first contestant for Person of the Year 2009. He informed Matt that he had collected all of his things from his "travels". So Matt asked him where he was traveling to. His reply...the bus stop. Hmmmm. Interesting. I thought he might have some reindeer to take him places. Anyways, love him!

I look SO thirty.

Interrogating Our Painter

Few people know that I am kind of paranoid. Maybe it is because I am married to a cop who brings home stories or pictures of stab wounds, drugs, drug deals, transvestites, dead people..must i go on? Or maybe its because i watch the news. Since we have been finishing our basement I have had multiple strangers working in my house, most have been kind enough to use the basement windows for entry and the port a potty down the street. And i have studied every single face that has entered my home. Well, currently the painting is being done. The guy who i hired is pretty shady looking..and his car is even worse. but i got a copy of his business liscense and his ID. Matt checked his record and he's clean. But then he brings a helper who says his name is "T" and doesnt have his ID on him for multiple BS reasons. So Matt goes downstairs and has a little "chat" with him. Matt asks him for his name, b-day and SSS. "T" responds " uh yeah, name is uh Tim..uh..uh..Byrd. My b-day is uh..lets see.. i just turned 41 and so uh..its 4-26...bla bla bla. So matt says "look, you know i am a cop. I deal with this everyday so quit lying to me". "T" gives up his info and sure enough he has $ 25,000 in warrants. We have kept a close eye on him and promised not to arrest him if he calls the courts and gets it taken care of. And did I tell you the last painter who worked on our toyroom Matt had arrested? Grrrreat. Its got to suck running from the law and always looking over your shoulder. So hopefully the guy who lays our carpet isnt a complete dirtbag. But that is why I love having a cop for a husband..and a good looking one too. But our basement is almost done..yippee!

Matt Gives Birth to a Snake.

Ha ha . I am so funny. So let me explain this picture. Our crazy snake got itself stuck in a PVC pipe. I had been telling Matt for a few days that it looked stuck...and did he listen? Nope. So late one night I find Matt in the garage trying to get the snake out by SAWING OPEN THE PIPE. Then, he made me hold the pipe in between my legs while he takes the saw to it again and I have the snakes tail in my hand trying to pull the darn thing out! Matt will be the first to admit that he is not handy. He can work a hammer and drill. So...electric saw + stuck snake+ wife+ Matt's skills = potential disaster. Then being the homemaker that I am had the bright idea to get some vegetable oil and pour it down the tube. So with a little pushing, pulling and some lamaaze breathing, the snake was born!
