Old Navy Mishap

We headed to Old Navy tonight to use my Super Cash I got earlier in the month. If you spend $40, you get $20 off. A great deal right! Half the price...So we found enough Items to get over $40 and checked out.  When I got home and was looking at the receipt, It looked odd to me....

(click on picture to enlarge receipt and see totals)

We called, they said they would try and figure it out and call us back.  They called back and said we have to bring in the receipt to see what messed up.

Is it worth it to drive back for just over $4.00?
Is my math even right?
What would you do?
I suppose I need to start checking receipts before I leave the store...
Do you ever check your receipts to make sure they are right?

Parkerisms - concerns for dad

Parker: "Where are we going?"
Me: "To pick up daddy and then go to the store."
Parker: "After we go to the store can we go to Chick-fil-a?"
Me: "I don't know."
Parker: "But not daddy.  Just you, me and Rigee."
Me: "Why can't daddy go?"
Parker: "because he has to go home and go to bed to go to work."


This weekend our church had conference and it was amazing.  Elder Holland came and spoke to us and switched out our Stake Presidency.

Our family had the opportunity to feed Elder Holland.  He was so polite and funny.  He shook our hands and told my mom that he would like to fly in every weekend for her to fee him!  He also told Mom that she was his very own Betty Crocker or something like that.  Before my dad could introduce Kari, Elder Holland told her she looked just like my mom. 

He also talked to Riglee and said that she was the pretty little girl that he saw being passed around Saturday night at conference.  Haha -- She started out sitting with Adam's Parents and then was ready for her bottle so I had to go get her from them...

It was a pretty amazing experience and I'm glad I suffered through my back pain to attend and help mom feed him and the Stake Presidency.  I am sad that I missed out on Sunday feeding them lunch.  I came home and My parents, sister and sister in law got to sit at the table with Elder Holland and visit with him while he ate his lunch before he headed to the airport.  What a neat experience that would have been. 

Parkerisms - netflix and conference

Yesterday at church, Parker was playing a game on my phone with his friend, Braydon.  After they had been playing a while I got a tap on my shoulder from Braydon's Mom saying they are trying to open a movie on your phone.  The conversation between Parker and me went a little like this...

Me: "What are you doing?"
Parker: "I want to watch Netflix.  I want to watch George"
Me: "You can't watch a movie during church"
Parker: "but I'll be really quiet!"

Happy Day --- Happy Birthday

Every morning I tell Parker to go get dressed for his happy day.
This morning it went a little like this...

Me: "Parker go get dressed for your happy day?"
Parker: "For my happy birthday?"
Me: "no, it's not your birthday."
Parker: "Oh for Claire and Lindon's Birthday?"
Me: "No we already went to their Party. But, it's Aunt Kia's birthday on Saturday."
Parker: "My best friend, Kia?  Her birthday?  My best friend Kia and Matt?"
Me: "haha, yes Parker Kia"
Parker: "Is she going to have a spiderman cake??"

I guess Uncle Matt will have to get Kia a spiderman cake for her birthday!

Parkerisms - bad back

Parker: "Mom I want to hold you."

Me: "You can't right now.  Mom's back hurts really bad."

Parker: "Here I'll rub it for you."

Me: "Thanks Parker that was soo sweet!"

Parker: "Now can I hold you?"

How could I not let him hold me after that?  The lil stinker!

I also needed to get Parker some body wash/shampoo.  Another shopper left a coupon they didn't need so I got 50 cents off!  Wahoo. 

Are you a nice shopper like that? 
Do you leave extra coupons you don't need right there next to the product for others for you to use?

Cookie Monster

Last night I started feeling terrible.  My eyes were bothering me, my nose was getting stuffy and I felt a sore throat coming on.  I took two benadryl and headed to bed.  Riglee and Parker both woke up with snotty crusty noses.  So I knew none of us were feeling well.  I spent most of my day today laying on the couch dozing in and out.  Luckily Rigs slept the day away and Parker laid on the other couch watching cartoons.

I got a text from my little sister today asking how I was feeling -she works with Adam and he told her I wasn't feeling the best.  I told her I was okay and she asked if I would make cookies for their co-worker for her birthday tomorrow.  I told her I would.  I made sugar cookie dough and spelled out "Happy Birthday Christy" and then made a few chocolate chip cookies (which I think turned out terrible).

I organized them nice and neat on the tray (see above picture) and then got busy cleaning up and starting a load of laundry etc.

The next thing I know is my sweet little two year old was about to take a bite out of a cookie.  I ran from the laundry room into the kitchen and took it from him and was sad to see tiny teeth marks in it.  I wouldn't have cared except it was one of the letters (I knew I should have made extras!!)!
I might have over-reacted a tad - and yelled and sent him to bed.  I told him he was never allowed to get food without asking and that he was in big trouble.  I went in a few minutes later to check on him and this is how I found him...
I feel terrible for yelling at him and over-reacting because when Kari and Adam explain tomorrow to her why the "I" is missing from her name she'll totally understand and not care.

Parker got his cup out of the fridge and brought Adam one of my slim fasts out of the fridge and said "Dad, I want this kind of chocolate milk".

Adam had to explain to him that it wasn't chocolate milk and that he couldn't have it.  I guess he thought it was a Yoo-Hoo (nasty if you ask me).

Master Haynes the Graduate

He did it!  Adam graduated with his Masters Degree!!  He walked at graduation - it only cost us $80 but hey - he's done and we are so proud of him!

My mom took these before we headed to Adam's Graduation

These are from the Pre-Party that his department put on...

Parker loved that "the bird" was there and let him take a picture with him

Do you see him?
He's in line to get his empty container haha!

He looks so excited haha

These were taken after graduation...

I am so proud of him

After Graduation we went to Fuddrucker's to eat!  Thanks to everyone for coming and celebrating this special time with us!

Awna D was a trooper and went out in the heat with the kids to let them play for a bit!
Thanks Maren for the amazing Cake!!  It was a big hit and everyone loved it!!
One Happy Camper finally done with school (until he goes for his doctorate!! haha)

Swim Lessons

I hooked the camera up to the computer Saturday night to get the Adam's graduation Pics off and I found these from Parker's Swim Lessons!  I totally forgot about them!

Work Out

- I started working out again
- I've been twice a week the past two weeks
- I know it's not much, but it's better than nothing right?!?
- I did the elliptical cross trainer for 30 min today

- I also rode the bike for 30 minutes and did 9 miles
- I'm pretty happy about that
- Then We (my Sis in law and I) did a few weight machines
- Walked on the treadmill a few minutes
- Overall I burned over 1100 calories
- Yep, That's how crazy out of shape I am in
