Suds in the Bucket

Today I may have done the stupidest ever! For a while now there has been a somewhat redish spot on the bottom of the dishwasher with what looks like could be mold growing on it (not really sure if it's mold or not though). Anyways, after emptying the dishwasher this morning I decided to finally clean it out before re-loading the dishes. So I decided to use Mela Magic because it's supposed to break through tough messes. For those of you who don't know what Mela Magic is, it's a Melaleuca (where I used to work) product that can be used to clean floors, ovens, etc. Anyways, I poured quite a bit in the dishwasher on the spot so that it could start breaking it up and then I got a washcloth wet and poured some water on it. And that's when the suds started forming....Yes, that's right, I had forgotten about the whole sudsing when combined with water thing!!! So I spent a good 4-5 hours turning the dishwasher on and off about every 4-5 seconds and scooping out all the suds until FINALLY it was all cleaned out!! I'm not really sure what I was thinking when I picked that cleaner, but I guess something like this has to happen at least once to everybody. Although usually we do it when we are kids and don't know better...I just happened to wait a few years. And now I know what to do when/if Parker decides to put something in the dishwasher that shouldn't go in it!! I of course had to document this, so here are a couple pictures of the suds in the dishwasher. And no it wasn't like they were spilling out the top and going all over the floor...it wasn't that bad, thank goodness!!

Tonight we went bowling with Chris' family. It was Parker's first time and he loved the colors of the balls. He really wanted to play! We wanted to stay and wait for David Archuleta, his brother and the Osmand boy that tried out for American Idol this season to come to the theater we bowled at. However, we figured we probably shouldn't keep Parker up that late. :( Oh well, maybe some other time!
Ooh, what are these??
Decided that he really liked the balls!

7 Months

I just can't believe that Parker is 7 months old already! It doesn't seem possible that in 5 months he'll be 1. I took this picture with our NEW camera!!!

New Bed

Well we FINALLY bought Parker a real crib with some of our tax return money. He has been sleeping in his Pack n' Play since he was born. Now he has plenty of room to roll around and so far seems to love it! We still have to buy his dresser/changer, but for now we'll just continue to use his Pank n' Play since it has a changing table attached to it. My mom wanted to see some pictures of the crib all put together...so here it is!
It has a drawer that rolls underneath the crib for storage, which we have decided to use for ALL his blankets. It works perfectly!
Just another view...Looks comfy huh?!?

Bouncin' Fun

I have been trying to get a video of Parker bouncing in his exersaucer, but everytime I get the camera out, he stops and just looks at it. But I FINALLY was able to get it!! He seriously was bouncing up and down for like 3 minutes straight...don't worry the video isn't quite that long! I'm thinking I need to invest in one of those jumpers that hangs from the door. Enjoy!

Getting Ready for Sunday

Yesterday we bought a cute outfit at Walmart for Parker to wear for Church. It was a pretty good price and so cute, I just had to take some pictures!
What a little man!!!
