My Big Win!

I'm still having small panic attacks as I do this much pressure, ahhh! It's getting easier and I think I might be soon addicted.  I am a big listener to Radio From Hell on 96.3 and this week it paid off. So on January 12th they started a contest, giving away a trip to Vegas everyday for 20 days. They would deal a hand of cards each day, one card at different times throughout the day. To win the contest, you had to get all the cards and then call in the next day at 7:15 AM. I was committed to trying every single day, even if  I came up empty handed. Well, on the 5th day of setting my alarm to get up and listen to the radio, I won!  It was really crazy to hear my silly voice on the radio. 
So, on February 22nd, Kyle and I will be flying to Vegas with Kerry, Bill, Gina, (and Richie T), and the 19 other winners of the contest. They are paying for our flight, hotel for 2 nights, and giving both of us $96 to do what ever we want with. They will be doing their Radio show from Mandalay bay on February 23rd and 24th, so everybody try to listen from 6AM to 10AM (ya, right).

So I took this picture a couple days ago and realized what a perfectly classic picture of Jackson and Ethan this is. You can see Jack's snowball hitting Ethan, while Ethan's snowball is in mid-air about to hit Jack. Always tormenting each other, they are. Ethan also really needed a haircut in this picture.

Jackson is now in Kindergarten and has already chosen himself a wife. He tells me on a daily basis: " Mom, when I am a Dad, I am going to get married to Kylie and we are going to the temple." Very cute. Apparently Kylie, who is in his Kindergarten class,  has agreed to the arranged marriage. I ate lunch with Jackson at school and was informed by several silly girls in Jackson's class that his little "arranged marriage" is quite a hot topic amongst the class.  Jackson's teacher has to have a chat with me on a weekly basis because of his behavior at school. He is always trying to be the class clown and tends to be too chatty. She says she moved him to a new table where he was away from his friends, hoping it would help. The next thing she knew, he was friends with everyone at the 'new' table and she had to move him again. Sadly, he reminds me too much of myself at his age. My past is coming back to haunt me!

As for Ethan, well, to really fathom Ethan, you would have to observe him for yourself. Going out in public is difficult because he is always running away from me, and he is fast!  I usually catch people laughing or being completely appalled by the events that unfold everywhere he goes. Those he is quite a crazy boy, he can charm you in a second! He balances his feisty side with his sweet, lovable side, and thank goodness for that.
