Jerome's Dance..... And other odds and ends

So just a couple of minutes ago i started filming Jerome with our built in web cam on our computer. When he finally realized I was filming he started jumping and dancing all over the place. Then I remembered he had a dance the he showed us last night which outta the ordinary. I had him do his "dance" on the video. All I can say now is watch and laugh!

This upcoming Saturday is a birthday party for Richnigthder (he was also in the vid). We invited our friends The Watkins' who also adopted 2 lil' ones from the same orphanage as our boys were from. I would like to see Jerome teach them his dance... We could put all the little Haitians in grass hula skirts and coconut bras when they do the dance. Now that is what I call, video worthy, CUTE!!

So right now I am downstairs escaping chaos.... a.k.a Patty is here. :( yup that is right Patty Robinson our social worker for the adoption she is sooo anoying and she called mom one dad to tellher about her cucumbers and that was the complete point of the phone call. So she now has the nickname "Pickle Patty" haha!! I call her "Patty Le Peu" I don't know why but I do though. In other "Laurie News" I got new shoes and my HUGE feet measured and turns out in ND you cant get a size 11 1/2 womens in sneakers. So I went over to the mens section and found a nice pair of white and blue sneaks and they are like monsters! The didn't have 10 1/2 but like they did have 9 1/2 that work but not for to long!!! So and when I put them on the boys the looked like Steve Urkle LOL!!!!!!! Now this morning we all woke up to a fresh blanket of snow! YEAH (NOT)!!!!It is like all gone now BOOO HOOO:( (YES(:) lol well I have to go I will talk and post later bye bye!!!

Hi (again)

Ok so the other day I told you I got braces June 3rd well I didn't. My brother did, I get mine July 21st.

In my last post i told you about the closet and boys well I have some pics now so here they are they are cute:

Jerome decided to not want a picture at all. He thought i was going to scare him!!!

I wish I had a pic on the computer

The other day I was walking through our entry way to the front door to grab somthing I had left by the door on our little bench there and boy was I in for a shock! There I was minding my own buisness and diggin through a bunch of stuff and all of the sudden the closet doors started to shake and move, I shot up and nearly had a heartattack and of course you couldnt hear anyone talking and I am ust scared to death at this point not knowing what to do and thinking "Should I go and grab that old baseball bat the boys found or the 2 by 4 in the garage?" and then just I decided it would be best to just do nothing the thing(s) jumped out on me.......... Turns out it was just the boys playing in the closet. I do not know exactly what was going through their minds when they climbed in there. I did take some pics of them and Thomas in the closet but hey at least we can say they finaly came out of the closet! Sometimes they are just sooo silly. I also took some pics of Jerome (Sammy) after he got out of the tub he was just soo jumpy it was worth taking a picture. He was standing in his room with only a towel around him screaming at the tod of his lungs FRET FRET FRET FRET FRET FRET FRET FRET!!!!!! For those of who don't know what FRET is, It is cold in creole. He was shivering but still soooo jumpy! He is hilarious. I also have a pic of ME:

June 6th: Snow and rain at one time and me not so happy about it.... considering I was supposed to be at the water park! YEA RIGHT!
Yup SNOW in the middle of summer!
But anyways the boys are fine and hate this loverly spring weather and everyone else is THRILLED that it snows in summer, cinsidering we just got off of a really harsh winter. Well better JET! Bye

Hi I am soooo excited and like CRAZZY! and don't really know why I am though. It is so weird. In my last post I said I was going to the orthodontist, and I did he said i will need 12 months in braces and 18 months in a retainer starting on June 3rd. I am nervous but excited at the same time for that.

While we were on our trip I found out something about one of my pictures on my blog I didn't know about....

In this picture of Jerome his lady was Miss Asderlene Schminke who had gotten sick and about 10 minutes after this picture was taken she threw-up! BLUGH! So that is what I found out about that.

The other night I was bored so I was online tricking out my blog and if you scroll down to the very bottom you will see a really cute hit counter which I think is pretty cool. I better go both boys are in my room wanting food and to play on the computer. (Trust me I have no idea why they are asking me for food not that maid whoops mom!!) LOL

Monday, May 11, 2009

So like I said....

we took the horse out this morning to work with him. Last time we did this he walked over the tarp and let us drag the wally world bags all over his back and body. SO this time he did the same except for he would copy me, I would kinda paw the tarp so it made noise and then he would, I would walk over and he would to so we did this like 5 times and then we took his halter off to let him run and guess where he went? THE DOOR! He already was done and wanted to leave so we did. But I think he is making sweet, sweet progress with this already! YA! Hopefully he will do well in the rodeo! I just thought I would update you with that but now I have to go! TALK TO YOU LATER!! BYE!!!

If I could be anywhere it would be...

In the Caribbean on the beach sipping on a virgin margarita with sunglasses and a swimsuit on lounging around!

I soooo wish summer would come sooo much sooner I HATE WINTER! I wish it was warm and sunny and warm and fun! I can't wait to go to Haiti so it can be nice and sunny and WARM! YAY! When summer comes I will be outside 24/7 doing anything and everything!

So this summer I am going to try for the Miss Mandan Rodeo Princess '09! For that I need a horse which is okay with crowds and flags waving. My show horse, Tommy, is okay with crowds but not so much with flags and so we have to work with him and flags. Everyday we are trying to take him to the indoor riding arena and putting tarps and shaking Wal-mart bags at him and he is doing GREAT with that! He walked over the tarp and let us drag the bags on his back and body which for him is incredible for the fact that he is terrified of stuff like that so hopefully he will do great with me at the rodeo!

I love this horse but he has his disadvantages and this is one we are going to get on top of A.S.A.P. if that is even possible! He is a fabulous horse to rein on but other subjects (rodeos) he is not so perfect he is like on a 1 to 10 scale a 2 which is horrible! Luckily it is a work in progress! Tomorrow, early in the morning, I'll go back to working with Tommy, so I have to go to bed so I am AWAKE!! Talk to you later! BYE!

Today and Pics!! YAY!!

Hi guys!! (When I first typed that I put a question mark?) So today I have been acting like well really weird. So this morning I started school and did that fine until I realized the sun was really bright coming through the windows. So the fool I have been being today ran and got my swim suit and my sun bathing stuff on and laid in the reclining chair and sun bathed... about an hour later I realized that the sun had moved so I had to too. So about two hours later I realized nothing was happening! soo... I went on the computer and can't spell anything! Now I want to (finally) post some pics (Now let's see how that goes/went?!)

This is Carlos or as I call him in this picture... RICO SUAVE!!!! He is such a clown sometimes!

This is Carlos's little brother Gucci... yes like the designer. I don't quite know at what he was looking!?

So the little small window there is my bedroom window that is how much snow we have!!

Adoption OMG and WOW!!

Hi Guys! It is me again...(OF COURSE!) Today a lot has happened and what I mean by a lot is A LOT! The day started with school and I did all of my work YAY! What I am doing in, Composition, is making newspaper articles and newspapers, along with TV news stories. At my birthday party (for example) we are going to make a small movie and hopefully that will not take long at all!

The reason the title is 'Adoption OMG and WOW!!' is because mom got an email syaing go to the adoption family forum. Now with our adoption agency mom and dad get a forum along with all the other families that they can post on about anything and everything. So anyways she went to the forum to find a post saying that a family on their is un-adopting their little boy they just got home from Haiti. The reason they are un-adoptiong him is because he has Hep B. Both mom and I think it is just CRUEL to un-adopt because of a disease. Mom also said no matter what sickening disease or if any of us turn out to be like you know "bad" (e.g. Murderers or in jail) she would never ever un-adopt any of us for any circumstance. I think its wrong and nasty and bad to do what she has chosen to done. It is one thing to decide to un-adopt your child but to take him away from his brother and sister also from Haiti! She also is giving him to a family from church, instead of asking if any of us on the forum would take him, Mom said she would had of happily taken him with no problem what-so-ever. Anyways mom and are so mad we are sick it is DISGUSTING to do that. Well I better get going so talk to you later.

Monday, February 23, 2009


Hi Guys! I just wanted to say sorry about that...The font color and not being able to read the blog! I changed it to a lime green so it stands OUT! I did that because it looks a lot better and you can read it! Okay so enough about the font color and on to an idea. I was thinking that you could give me some things that are going on in your world. I could somehow put it into a post about everyone, it was an idea of Mom and I's. SO to tell you about me right now... Nothing much has happened lately... other than our really good neighbor/friend found a house 40 miles away and is moving in March... She will be missed but at least we can see her. Well mom just made some pizza and we have to go and eat. I will post tomorrow! Talk to you later!

Today's events and other things

Hi everyone! I wanted to fill you in with what happened today and little bit of other things. Today is presidents day as most of you already know, but you all probably had the day off... except me. I had a little bit of school and it is already over. I am reading the book Anne of Green Gables I love the book except for the extremely long chapters! :p I am already up to I think chapter 20.
Something else I want to tell you is about a really good friend of mine Miranda. She and I have known each other for a long long time. The way we met is weird but oh well. She and I have been through a lot of fights but yet we still are BFF's. She VOLUNTEERED to write me an email so I could put it in this post, in fact this post was all her idea! Here is exactly what she said: (I copied and pasted it!)

OK so there's this girl and she means a lot to me! We met I kinda of a weird way.. but I don't care because she's the BOMB! I really don't know where I would be without her in my life! She's been with me through a lot, and she is AMAZING! We fight a lot but I think that just shows how much we care for each other! Not only is she AMAZING, but so is her family! Wow her mom is just as amazing as her! Her dad is HILARIOUS! TOM! WOW what else is there to say?! He's my little buddy! Plus I CAN NOT WAIT to meet her new little brothers: Richnighdter and Jerome! This girl and her family are my sunshine on a cloudy day, the chocolate to my cookie, the sugar to my spice, and the apple of my eye! I love her SO much! She is: Madison!

Miranda is really cool! She is the nicest person in the world. I can trust her and not worry about anything. She is the only friend my mom will let me run off in a store/mall and she doesn't have to worry if we make a last minute trip to Starbucks. We don't have to check in with her or anything! I love Miranda! SHE IS THE BEST FRIEND A GIRL COULD HAVE!

I also want to update you on the homecoming of our two boys from Haiti. The other day Richnightder's file came out of MOI, and is on the way to passport printing. ( If you want to learn about this stuff go to that is my moms blog) Jerome's file will hopefully be onto passport printing and out of MOI soon. Richnighder and Jerome will probably be ready to come home in at least 2 months! Well That is all for today and I have to go because I am going to a friends house soon(hint hint she is in this post!) Well talk to you later! CIAO!

Welcome to Maddie's Mocha Talk

Hi! This is my new blog and I want to tell you about what will be in it. The point of my blog is to tell you about what goes on in my life, like my school and the process in which we are bringing home two boys from Haiti........... My new brothers Richnightder and Jerome. I am also home-schooled and will be telling you what I do in a day. After school I will be able to update it so everyday look for a new post (hopefully)! I will tell you what I do and what subjects I have. Also this blog is to help me produce my writings (compositions) and make them much better.
