O.K. it is official. Kaiden is addicted to picking the dirt out between her toes. I have no idea how this little obsession started, all I know is that the past few months it has got steadily worse. She does this little ritual of sitting down, and then carefully going toe by toe and removing whatever it is that is between them. One day she told me, "Mom look at this dirt, it is so disgusting". She has even started doing this toe picking addiction during opening exercises of primary. Yes it's true. Yesterday I saw my child carefully take her shoes off and begin (yet again) this toe-picking obsession. Meanwhile sitting in such a way that she is flashing her panties to all to see. I teach the CTR 5 class, so I had a full view of her one row ahead of me. Her primary teacher told me she noticed that she does it in class all the time. Just great. If that is not bad enough, I have caught her pinning Carson down by sitting on his stomach so that she can remove the dirt between his toes(while all the time he is screaming bloody murder). I sat down with her yesterday and told her that she is not allowed to pick her toes in church anymore. As for the rest of her toe-picking, I can only hope that she outgrowns it soon or at least it doesn't get to the point where she wants to start doing it on me.

Edward's house, I admit was a bit of a dissapointment. First off, it was like a block from the high school. I guess, the house they were orginally saying Edward lived in burned down last winter (mmm, I wonder if there are Edward haters out there). It was supposed to be a more accurate representation of the Cullen house, because it was set in the middle of woods like Edwards, and much bigger (it had 18 bedrooms, crazy!). Oh well, I need to remember that he doesn't exsist anyways. I have to say that Forks was fun and crazy. They really made it seem like the Cullen's lived there. At one store, I went in, the cashier, was an Alice look-alike. She told me she was the towns Alice. Well, what I want to know is where is the town's Edward. Where is he?
O.K so here's the deal, I (like every other woman/girl on the planet) REALY wanted to see Forks, Washington. I probably wouldn't have ever make the trip if I still lived in Arizona, but since I am convientaly living in Washington and it's a mere 4 hours from my house, I say what the heck. Plus our boat to and from Victoria left from none other than (drum roll please) Port Angeles. I did have one slight reservation about going to Forks and that was the fact that I would much rather go with girls, who love the books like me. Not my husband and two little kids. Plus if gorgeous god-like Edward did truely exsist (sigh), I would definately not want my husband and two little kids ruining my good time. Oh well. I have to say in J.'s defense though, he has read the first 2 books, so I ended finding that worthy enough to accompany me to Forks (we had to bring the kids because apparently it's frowned upon to just leave them alone somewhere).
