Tia Jessie - GO ASU!!!

Jessie really is a great person! All these stories are in great fun and I know Jessie appreciates all the great times. However, being that I am a little... ok, very prideful (but that runs in our family because we are all so great!) I am going to share a picture of Jessie and her ONLY nephew! I will never forget the call I got from Jessie about 3 weeks before Kimball - my son was born. She was shopping for the baby shower. She called about 3:00 and asked where the Babys R Us was located. I told her and she went on her way. I called her about 3:30 to ask if she had found it and she said she had, and was getting ready to leave because she bought the present. SO, about 7:30 I received a call from her..."So do what kind of clothes hamper do you want for Kimball?" was the only thing I heard when I said 'Hello!' I asked if she was still there and she laughed and said yes - her cart was now full and she was trying to get out but there are just too many good things to buy babies... What a great Tia! Yes, I am only speaking to Kimball in spanish so he knows Jessie as Tia Jessie... HEre is a picture of them on Game Day a few weeks ago...

Family member: Jessie neither of those places is a state!

Jessie: Huh?

Family member: ...exactly... HUH?!

My brights are on, oh well.

When Jessie was a relatively new driver, she once noticed that her brights were on. Unable to figure out how to turn them off and too prideful to ask anyone how, she just shrugged it off until about a week later she was pulled over for it.

Robin Hood

So, this afternoon we set out to watch the Disney cartoon 'Robin Hood.' Jessie thought it was a different story from the Kevin Costner version. In her words, "So what does this Robin Hood do? Cuz the other one steals from the rich to give to the poor, right?"

Answer; Seven

Question: How many times did Jessie trip over her own feet (or fall off a non-moving couch) in the space of 24 hours?

Paper Plates

By Amy
So at my little b-day lunch the other day when Anna, Jessie and I were cleaning up I made a comment about Beka and Dannys blog. I was saying I thought it was funny that Danny was asking if Anna wanted him to put his paper plate in the dishwasher when Ms. BYU graduate herself asked "wait, can you put paper plates in the dishwasher?" I guess there is no explaination need for this one!

One of my ALL time favorite comments from Jessie was as we were driving to who knows where, we passed a billboard that had this emaciated looking woman laying on her side in a bikini and Jessie, in a completely serious voice, said, "Hey! They didn't ask me if they could use my body on that billboard!"
