Tagged-forever ago!

So, I was tagged by my friends Rachel and Emma quite awhile ago, so I guess I should do something about it. They were almost exactly the same tag, so I'm gonna combine it into one. I'm supposed to share 6 quirks about myself in one, and 7 in the other. Anyway, hope this doesn't bore you.

1. The papers on my desk at work have to be straight and neat. Even if there are a lot, and they are everywhere, they have to be arranged symmetrically, or it bugs me to death. 

2. I don't know if this is quirky, but I love the movie 'Xanadu', with Olivia Newton John. I think it is one of the funnest and cheesiest movies, and I could watch it over and over and never get bored.

3. Which brings me to my next one, and most of you know this, but I love musicals of all shapes and sizes. They make me feel happy and I was a little disappointed when Disney stopped making the cartoons where the characters actually sang. Okay, a lot disappointed. I still love Disney movies, but I will never forgive them for doing that to me.

4. I hate scary movies, they make me fear things that I otherwise wouldn't even think twice about. Like...mirrors, When I'm in that frame of mind, which I am a lot in my scary almost 100 year old house, I won't look in the mirrors in the dark. I don't want anyone to be behind me. And we have a medicine cabinet in our bathroom, and you know how scary that can be. If I open it to get something out, and close it again, I sometimes will not look in it and hurry out of the bathroom. Weird, I know.

5. I chew my nails when I am nervous or watching a movie, or sometimes when I'm bored and not paying attention to what I am doing. I've done this for a long time, I really have tried to break the habit, but I have not been able to. I've resigned myself to the fact that it is something that I will do for the rest of my life or till I can't because I no longer have fingernails. In fact, I've been nawing on my thumb nail while I'm trying to think of how else I'm weird. Oh, there are lots of ways, I just can't come up with any.

6. When I eat a hostess ho-ho, I peel the chocolate off and eat it, then I unroll it and eat it in pieces. I haven't had one of those in a long time, that sounds really good.

7. I've decided the reason I like being in plays, is because I get a natural high from being on stage. It's kind of like doing something extreme for me. And since I won't do anything like that cause I'm such a wimp, performing is my way of getting an adrenaline rush. And I get one every time, I love it. That's probably why I'm so tired all the time right now, I haven't performed in a really long time. I guess it's time to jump back in.

Now, I hate to do this, but I tag....Kristin, Bonnie, Misty, Dave, Brooke, Whitney, and Laura.

Sleepy Head

One of my favorite things is to watch my cutie sleep, and sleep he does. In a lot of strange positions and places. It was so fun to post the picture of him sleeping in the closet, I thought I'd show you some other cute sleeping pictures.

Taylor frequently slept like this in his crib. Right up against the slats with his feet either up on the side or throught the holes. And his hands behind his head. But usually the next time I'd check on him, he'd be on the other side of the crib in a completely different position. The kid doesn't ever stay in one place for very long, even in sleep.

This is Halloween last year on our way down to the Halloween party at the Todd's. Isn't he just so adorable when he's sleeping?

He got this flashlight for his birthday from Kristin and Jeremy, and he wore out the batteries doing this. It has three little stenciled covers that project different animals on the wall. I think the red one is a monkey.

This is my very favorite picture of them all. This was just last weekend, I was out shopping, and Justin was watching Taylor. First he wanted his mickey mouse doll, then he wanted the hat. You have to understand, he won't let us put this hat on him at all when he's awake, but this particular afternoon, he wanted it on before he went to sleep. And it stayed on him for almost his entire nap. Such funny kid, I'm telling you. I'm so blessed to have a cute kid with such a fun personality. He has his moments of not-so-cuteness, as I'm sure every kid does, but he makes me laugh so much, that I can easily forget those other times.
