Sometimes the boys say things that make me laugh outloud.
For instance, the other day we were in Extra Foods and they were in the toy aisle drooling over some Bionicle-y type toys. Jacob spotted a transformer car of some kind and excitedly pointed it out to his brother, who arched his eyebrows and said, "Pffft...those are so old school, Jacob." (clearly not getting that "old school" is usually a good thing).
Then there was the "sahweeeeeeet" era.
Jacob picked that up at school and brought it home to Lucas who glommed onto it and for about 3 months every thing was "sahweeeeet".
Today, after a grueling lunch hour of Pokemon trading, Jacob was filling me in on all of his "rad" trades and commented that his buddy, Erik, brings his cards to school 24-7 (except, of course, when it's raining or snowing, which clearly establishes the fact that he doesn't entirely "get" the premise of "24-7").
So I was wondering today which one of these will stick?
Which one will be the "awesome" of their era.
Which then lead me to wonder if it's sad that as a 36 year old fully growed woman I still use the word "awesome" in everyday conversation?
I don't think so.
It's not like I'm using the word grodie.
Our house is coming along fairly quickly. We've hit a couple of bumps with the hydro and are now overbudget due to something called a transponder which we don't have and apparently need for power.
Being overbudget for cabinetry or a swimming pool is I can get on board with, but for something like that?
Seeing as how I need power to run my computer, I guess it's a no brainer.
Here are a couple of pictures Jason took today at the site.
This one is the view from the masterbedroom:
And this is take from up on a hill behind the house:
We were in Edmonton last week visiting Jason's family and we got to meet our sweet new niece Evalyn.
She is a doll.
Jacob was immediately in love with her and was helping me badger Gorgeous George for a baby sister for him and his brother.
His brother's comment when asked if "wouldn't he like a baby sister like this" was, "Nope. She would take up WAY too much of your time."
Here she is:
