Awww, SNAP.

Oh no I di-n't. Sorry I've been absent the past few weeks on recapping my thoughts on Idol. To be honest, I don't think I'm up for it all this season. Cripes! Blast! I know, say it ain't so. But when it comes to taking care of the boys, the cooking, the laundry, & of course Jack & Kate...well, things just take priority. And Jack & Kate will always take priority. Lost now being on Tuesday nights kinda messes up my mojo. And we won't even speak of Wednesday nights because Ben & I tend to laugh our faces off every single episode of Modern Family. Then there's Miss Cougar. Let's not even speak of her. And by the time Thursday rolls around, I'm over it. SOOOO...all that to say (I'm so very sorry, Melissa!), there won't be many posts about American Idol this season! I don't even really know how many people read them, but if there are just a few or if there are thousands (ha, what a gas gas gas) my apologies are extended to you during your time of grief in reading this news.
But fret not, friends. I'll still be posting pictures of the family, my ridiculous thoughts on celebrities & what's happening in pop culture, & the like.

Speaking of celebs, let's talk right quick about John Mayer. I used to be a fan when his first album came out way back when. But his recent shenanigans have just gone waaaay over the line. Not even close to the line at all, really. Does anyone out in Hollywood Schmollywood have an extremely tight muzzle they can cap over John's mouth so he'll quit talking about private things that nobody (and I truly mean NOBODY) wants to hear about? I was embarrassed just reading about it. Good grief, Johnny. There is such a thing as discretion. Oh yeah, and class. Neither of which you have. BOOM.

Seacrest, OUT.

Happy 2nd Birthday Levi!

Last Thursday, January 28, 2010 was Levi's 2nd birthday. We spent the evening celebrating him at Chuck E. Cheese with just our family. It was a fun night filled with laughter, pizza, cake, & games. Here are some photos chronicling our night. I didn't get any pictures of us singing Happy Birthday or him blowing out his candles because Ben was video-ing & I was making sure nobody caught on fire. Safety first.

Get this bib off of me so I can open some presents!

Here he is opening up one of his presents.

Wait for it...

ANNNNNND...pure excitement!

And the excitement lives on...!!

Our night was really fun & special. I can't believe my baby's 2!

In other Cissell news, Ben & I have officially become elders. And when I say elders, I do not mean the church-goin-kind. I mean the old & wrinkly kind...with Ben-Gay, creaks in our neck & back, & using our walkers-kind. The kind of old couple who sit around during the night hours & work on puzzles. Literally. We just finished a Key West puzzle, which was cool because we got married in Key West. We were able to match up all the pieces of the places we went 9 years ago. It was great. So when the kids go to bed, we watch old episodes of Worst Week & The Office on netflix, laugh out loud at the shows & each other, & do our puzzle(s). It's been really fun. Here are some pics of the finished Key West puzzle.

And putting in the last piece.


I'll be back here tomorrow night to put the smack-down on Idol. Happy Monday!
