|What American accent do you have? |
Your Result: The West
Your accent is the lowest common denominator of American speech. Unless you're a SoCal surfer, no one thinks you have an accent. And really, you may not even be from the West at all, you could easily be from Florida or one of those big Southern cities like Dallas or Atlanta.

ANYWAY...I appreciate all your support and prayers b/c we had an absolutely wonderful family weekend.
If you can't read the sign, "Fried marshmallows, Fried Snickers, Fried Pralines, Fried Oreos"! Um, Yeah...unfortunately it was still a bit early in the morning for me to try any of these forbidden treats. However, an hour later I got myself a Jumbo turkey leg (see below).
So sweet! Quade's line "Big cowboy, hat, talking"
Saturday night our friend Holly offered to come and watch the boys so we could go out on a little date. Needless to say we took her up on it! We went to a place we would highly recommend: Times Ten Cellar wine bar (http://www.timestencellar.com/). We sat outside on their patio sipped wine and had a flourless chocolate cake...yummy!
After church we went to the park for lunch with our friends the Kruses and their 3 boys. It was an absolutely beautiful day.
That afternoon I took a nice nap and then Bruce watched the boys while I went out to dinner with some of the girls from our small group. We went to Sangria (a tapas restaurant). We sat out on the patio, had great food and fabulous conversation.
So a wonderful weekend all in all and to top it off...

There are a few phrases that Quade uses frequently to express himself. I thought I would document the ones I find most amusing for future reference. (thanks Erin and Jina for the idea).
The phrase "So happy now" is used for the obvious contexts. He particularly likes to use it when he has asked us for something and we say 'yes'. (e.g., Q: lollipop? H:okay Q: so happy now)
"No like this..." is used frequently throughout the day to express general dislike. I have heard the following hilarious variations: "No like this, dudes." and when listening to the radio "No like this song!"
"Firetruck. No push me. Time out! 2 minutes all done"
Lately Quade has been disciplining his toys when they misbehave. The good news is our home is no longer full of ill-mannered playthings.
Mom's favorite: "Two guys"
Whenever I am holding both quade and price, Quade will say "two guys" and lean in for a hug. It's precious!

4. How old is your man? 34
19. Who pays when you go out? Depends on who is taking charge of the kiddos and who can grab their credit card fast enough...usually Bruce pays
24. Who asked who out? I asked him to go the symphony with me (my parents had season tickets they weren't going to use) I drove us down to Indy. It was wonderful. Afterward we went to the airport to pick up his little sister who was visiting.

Who do you think is easier to manage: a toddler or a newborn?
Things to keep in mind:
-there is a difference btwn individual newborns...case in point, quade was a lot more difficult as a newborn than price as been, so far (same goes for toddlers).
-things that are easy to manage with toddlers are harder with newborns (sleep) and vice versa (independence).
-newborn phase really only lasts about 3 months, toddlerhood lasts about a year/year and a half.
-toddlers can verbally communicate their wants (although it may not be what YOU want), whereas newborns use crying as their primary method of communicating (eventhough it seems toddlers only have tantrums and whining as their means to communicate).
