Kids Say The Cutest Things!!

So this past week Donny has said some pretty funny stuff. He is just talking like crazy and he is saying things that a two year old shouldn't be saying.

Here are some of the things that he has been saying:

We are now going to Clearwater, Florida when we are on vacation. He is calling it Coldwater. So he told me that Daddy was going to Coldwater for work...I was like no Daddy is going to Spain for work and we are going to go to Clearwater for vacation...It was funny.

Then the other night we were at the mall and he told Daddy that he had found him the perfect suitcase. It was the perfect one...didn't matter that it was red, it was the perfect one.

He then told us that he needed the little suitcase for himself...and that he loved it. How cute...not cute enough though to spend $160.00 haha

On Saturday Donny told me that he wanted to call Daddy, so I said may. I gave him my phone and said push the green button and he was calling Daddy. Well he was trying to tell me that Daddy wasn't there and wanted me to take the phone. I go are you sure Daddy isn't there. He then started talking and said oh hi daddy I didn't have signal and couldn't hear you. Now that is not what a two year old should be saying...he has no idea what that

Lastly, we were in Target and he wanted to buy this car (that mommy wasn't giving in and buying, so we had a major meltdown) but he did tell me that he really loved it and that it was his most favorite in the world. Along with the michigan basketball that is in the backyard. His MOST favorite thing ever....

I am telling you...this kid cracks me up...he makes us laugh when we need a good laugh. I can't wait to see what he says this week!!!

American Idol

I am so into it this year...only because I really need to support someone from Kalamazoo. This doesn't happen every day, so I might as well be hooked to the tv two days a week...all because of Matt awesome piano player and singer.

I think that he is a great singer and that I can totally support him. I would love it if he made it all the way! that would be awesome for our town..for our state! I would totally buy his cd!

I am also really happy to see all of the support that he is getting from everyone. His family must be really proud of him.

I will be in front of the tv on Wednesday night hoping and praying that he made it thru to next week!

So, please everyone join in with me and support Matt!!!

Spring Fever!!

After today, I am ready for spring. I knew that it was supposed to get warm today, but I didn't realize that it was going to be close to 70 degrees. It was so nice out. I went to work with a long sleeve shirt and no jacket. It was soooo great.

When I got home from work, my hubby had Donny out side playing. I believe that he was out there for over 2 hours!!!! That is awesome!! I wish I could have played with him outside. Next time I will. Also, I found out that Daddy is spoiling him tonight by taking him to McDonald's and letting him play there. What a great Daddy!

So this weekend it is supposed to be in the 50's but with rain. That is ok though as on Sunday we are going to go to Playhouse Disney Live! at Wings Stadium. I cannot wait, I really think that Donny is going to enjoy it. I just hope that he will sit thru it!
I think that he will like Handy Manny the best..I think that I will like them all! Funny
I will try to get some pictures and post them though, I don't know how well they will turn out though as we are in the stands and not close to the stage.
So spring please come to Michigan soon as we are ready for it!!

So our yellow lab cichlid has reappered...he was hiding in the stone that we have in the tank. All of sudden he was just there..

The only thing is now he hides a lot...I don't know what I am going to do.

Also, the catfish seems to think that he needs to chase everyone. I just hope he doesn't eat anymore of the big fish.

I will keep you all updated and I will post more pictures soon!

New Fish

Well, we decided that it was time to get a new fish today. We have been trying to make my tank a cichlid tank..the only thing is, is that I have a 26 gallon tank. So I don't know what I am going to do with these fish once they are HUGE!! But I love them. They have great color and so far they have a great temperment. I know that that is just for now. So we bought this really neat looking blue fish. They said that when it is bigger, it will have these glowing spots on it. I can't wait!!

The only other thing with this new fish, is that he doesn't have a name yet. Donny has named all of our fish, and he just doesn't have one for him. We have given him a couple of suggestions, but he doesn't like them. I am sure we will figure something out soon enough for him.

We also have this Shovelnose Tiger Catfish. He is one crazy guy, let me tell you. All I see him do is just sit there. He does nothing. Well, today we bought some rosies for him, that way he doesn't have to eat my fish..which he tried to do yesterday! So we buy 20 of these fish..he has eaten about 10 of them and look at that belly of his. This is when you know he has eaten something, his belly gets huge! After a couple of days it will go back to normal, but still. It just makes him look funny. I am now hoping and praying that he didn't eat my yellow lab cichlid. He was a good sized fish and I really don't think that he did, but I can't find him. So we will see what happens.

Lastly, this is what happens when the little fish are still swimming around your tank and the catfish isn't hungry anymore. Your cichlids start to eat the catfishes food. It is crazy to think that I have fish that need to eat fish. I never thought that I would, but what can I do? I like these fish and I don't think that I am ever going to want to get rid of them.
So yes, this is Dadoo(a cichlid that we have had for awhile) and my husband walked by the tank and said hey that fish has a fish hanging out of his mouth. Then he told me to run and get my camera. How disgusting is that? I guess it was more of a look at this cool fish that I have and you don't moment. I guess I am going to have to get used to this now. But we learned this time, we will be buying guppies next time.

This is just an extra picture that I wanted to put on here. This is Bubbles (yellow lab in front) and Turbo (in back). I can't find Bubbles right now and it is making me really sad...he was finally starting to look really cool and I don't know where he is. The only thing that I can think of is that my husbands lovely catfish had himself a yellow breakfast. But I am really hoping not. That means that I would have to try and find a yellow lab that looks like him and I don't think that I would be able to. I really liked him!
So that is our fishtank. We have 4 cichlids (one is missing though), 1 catfish, 1 pleco, 2 buenos aires tetras, 2 other kind of tetra, 8 rosies...i had more but I did give my brother in law some fish and then one of my tetras died yesterday. But that is alright, I am guessing he was sick or something. When I get more pictures of them I will post them.
