Originally I wasn't giving him the option. He was going to be a crab, Leila a lobster, and Josh and I were going to be scuba divers. Well, I couldn't find the crab in Kai's size and Leila is SO much cuter than a lobster. Then I made the mistake number one...asking him what he wanted to be. For those of you that know Malakai, you don't give him a lot of options, it over-stimulates his little brain and he freaks out. You should have seen him in front of the ice cream truck when my mom told him to "pick one." Little Rain Man gets a little nervous.
First it was a power ranger, then speed racer, then a power ranger. We finally decided on this!
Not my first choice, but it could be worse! I specifically told him when he left for school this morning that there was NO changing his mind because I was ordering it today. Which I did. You know what the little stinker says? "Okay Mommy! Don't forget to order Daddy's pink power ranger costume." LMAO!
We are not sticking with the family theme this year because I'm not gonna lie, we don't really have anywhere to go :(
On that note, Leila Jane is a beautiful peacock :)
Stay tuned for the "after" pictures!
Best thing since I last blogged: My birthday! Good drinks, friends, and weather!
Worst thing since I last blogged: HOA's!

Okay, there is my randomness for the week :)
Things have been a little wild here! Staying busy and getting ready for our much needed vacation to Phoenix. We will be spending five days there in October and it is totally NOT enough time. I need to see my new beautiful nephew and I guess my brother ;), spend time with my BF and her beautiful family, including my precious God Daughter, attend a wedding of a longtime college girlfriend, and on top of it all try to enjoy some quality Miller Family time. Too bad we just can't stay for 5 weeks!!
As most of you know, Leila has a tooth! It's on the bottom and the one right next to it should be here any day!! She just had her 6 month check up and is healthy as a horse! She is 17lbs 11oz and 28 inches long!! She is SO tall!! She is moving everywhere around the house, she can't spot something across the room and boy she is off to get it! I have myself a very determined, hard headed diva on my hands!
I wanted to share a few pictures that a gf of mine took of Leila. They are amazing!! Thank you Nicole for taking the time to do this! You can practice on us anytime! Here is a link to her blog, it has a few more pics of Leila on it, plus if you are local and need some pics of your darlings, her information is on there :) http://gourleyphotography.blogspot.com/
Malakai is crazy as ever! I swear that boy is WAY too smart for his own good! He is in to reasoning with Josh and I. He wants to see how much he can get and how far he can push us. The wheels are constantly turning in that boys head. He is so Amazing! Here are a few pics of how we have been spending our quality time when Daddy is off of work.
The Science Center
Last but not least, teaching Leila how to Share :)
Best thing since I last blogged: I got news that one of my gf's is prego! Yeah! Can't wait to meet baby McKenna!
Worst thing since I last blogged: Josh kicked my A** in Fantasy Football! UGH!

I forgot how much I LOVE the highchair! We just broke it out the other day and Leila loves it! If she is crabby and nothing is making her happy, or if I need her close to me while I'm making dinner, I can put her in it with some toys and get a good 30 minutes out of it. You mothers out there know what a treat that can be!!
I thought I would share this video. She is laughing so hard at Oscar who sits at her feet every time she is eating. I only caught the tale end of it, but it's still cute. If you are wondering why her face is a MESS, Malakai decided he was going to help feed her :)
Best thing since I last blogged: "Twilight" by Stephenie Meyer. Totally not what I typically read, however, after having friends rave about it I thought I would give it a try. Guarantee I will have the entire series completed by next week! So good! Go Team Edward!!
Worst thing since I last blogged: Picked up soda again...Ugh!!

I went on Friday to pick up my tickets and I learned that there was a glitch in the computer system and they no longer had any left. I then had to drive to the McCain headquarters and was able to pick up two tickets there. Josh had to work, so I rearranged a sitter and my mom and I headed out around 1:00pm. Thank you Sarah and Carrie for watching my darlings! I know it must of been hard considering your die-hard liberals! LOL! Good thing we can agree to disagree!
So, it's about a 45 minute drive. Doors open at 2 and the Rally starts at 4. No wonder the doors opened TWO hours early, that's how long it took to get through the line to get in. There were so many people, many who had their kids with them. I just kept saying to myself, thank God I don't have my kids, what a freaking nightmare!!
I enjoyed the speeches, really like Palin, despite the recent controversy, and it gave me a lot of hope for the upcoming presidential election. Now that I am kind of on my soap box, don't forget to vote!! No matter what party you support, just vote! What an amazing thing to tell our children that we voted in an election that they will be learning about in their history books!
Favorite thing since I last blogged: My Nobama bumper sticker and my "Hot Chicks Vote Republican" button :)
Worst thing since I last blogged: Teething babies!
