California fun!

While on the pirates of the Caribbean ride I asked Zoey which pirate was her favorite. I was expecting her to point to the next pirate she saw but she responded with...Daddy! Can you guess what Brit is going to be for Halloween?

We had a great time in California this weekend. Disneyland was packed to say the least but the Halloween decor in the haunted mansion was worth it. We also enjoyed the fireworks and thought they were spooktacular! Zoey requested to go on haunted mansion twice and liked the Oggie Boogie man's fireworks. On the way home Zoey was singing..."Everybody scream, everybody Scream!"

However, The best part of California was making my very own leather belt! Yep, I made it! Uncle Dave was a great teacher and let me use all his leather making materials. Although the boy scout stamps were tempting...I went with all stars small, medium, and large. The medium stars are orange and the large stars are black. It also has a very special saying going across the back...BACK OFF! It is very impressive you must see it.

While driving to CA I asked Zoey what she wanted to be when she grew up. After thinking about it she said with much enthusiasm, "A Grandma!" I advised her she would have to be a mom first and she said she would be a mom just like me.

The Phone

Zoey stayed home with Dad yesterday while he was sick. I called to check on him and to my surprise Zoey answered the phone with many things to talk about. We chatted for a few mins then after the me asking 10 times she finally relinquished the phone over to Brit. Well, a while later the phone rang again and Zoey answered...Hello Mommy! However, It was not me! Zoey chatted with this fellow for a few mins and kept repeating, "No, I am ZOEY ORANGE MILLER"! After Brit realized that this conversation did not sound like a mommy-Zoey conversation he took the phone away. Hope that sales guy enjoyed that!

Potty time is play time

Yesterday, Zoey said she had to go to the bathroom. I thought it was silly she was telling me but I think she was looking for company. In hind sight I should have helped her. Long story short 8 hours later I went in the bathroom to find a "log" in the toilet...with no toilet paper and maxi pads circling the toilet seat. It was a sight to see and I should have taken a picture but I was too tired. Brit and I had a good laugh. And when my butt stuck to the toilet this morning from the glue it was hard not to smile! Zoey you never fail to amaze me!

Whats mine is yours...

Zoey got a card in the mail for Aunt Kelli that had $2 bill in it. Zoey claims that it is $1 and regardless of how hard I try it is still $1. She took it an put it in her wallet and then in her purse. She has another $1 in her wallet left over from Valentine's day. Brit and I know that her wallet has $3 in it. Well, Yesterday we all took a nap and as I started to make dinner Brit said to Zoey you better keep your wallet in a safe place because it has lots of money in it. Zoey's eyes lit up and said YEAH! As Brit went to pull out the $3 he was shocked to find $63 in her wallet. Zoey had the great idea to take the money from my wallet and put it in hers. This is not the first time this has happened. She took 2 gift cards from a friend's birthday party when she was 2.

If Zoey's in town and your missing money you might want to check her purse!

There is a first for everything

Zoey has had a few comments lately that have been funny to say the least...
(in no particular order)

  • Talking to Heavenly Father..."Why do you make mommy sick?" Short pause "Mom He said Yes, your sick!"
  • Your a loser (Brit and I both said, "Where did you learn that?" Luckily, she did not say MOM and DAD.)
  • Zoey:"Let's go see Porter" Me: "Where is Porter?" Zoey: "In Idaho" Me: "Is Idaho close or far away like Disneyland?" Zoey: "Far... lets go to Disneyland!"
  • Did you eat a baby?...Silly!
  • sniff sniff, "You stink did you fart?"
  • I want to go in the cow car (Chick-fil-a play place)
  • In the middle of a full blown crying tantrum with tears streaming down her face because Chick-fil-a was closed "I want Mc Donalds!"
