I need VODKA!

What has driven me so far to the edge you ask? My need to make more homemade vanilla extract! I've been wanting to write this post for a while and I hope no one will take offense. I have been wanting to make more vanilla extract forever, but I don't like buying the vodka. In fact I won't (wouldn't it be great if someone saw the LDS chaplain's wife buying hard liquor?). So, I need someone to buy some for me. I'm gonna have to work on that. I am almost out of my homemade vanilla extract that was made almost two years ago. Its a bummer and I'm gonna have to buy some and I know it won't be as good! But, I better get started cause that stuff takes a while to soak.

On another note, Paul is doing fairly well with the potty. We had a couple accidents today. One was bigger cause I didn't make him pee right after woke up this morning (his diaper was so full I didn't push it) and then the other time his underwear was just slightly damp (so he must have realized what he was doing and stopped, right?). We're making progress, right, Kelsey? I typically only make him try to potty every 30 minutes to an hour now. Hoping he is trained by the time we go to Brunswick! Now we probably need to seriously consider switching the crib to a toddler bed, not looking forward to that either!

I started out one day making her sit down every 30 min and before long I was screaming and she was crying. She just refuses to do it. I threw in the towel that day. I'll try again. So glad Paul is making progress.

I'm pretty sure Blake still has to pee a drop in his underwear to alert him to the fact he has to pee. I don't inspect them anymore because it would just irritate me. So good job Paul! And mom! Cause I think we get trained just as much as the kids do!
