Leslie's Earworms brought to you by Deke.

Oops it looks like someone's blog got hacked into, Leslie is sound asleep. I was wondering how long it would take her to notice me posting on it. In our little place there have been a few songs that are on heavy rotation because of Leslie and I wanted to share them with you.

Just to help you out an "Earworm" is a song that crawls in your ears and you can't get it out. These are the songs you find yourself singing over and over.

Phoenix -1901

Leslie and Oscar dance to this a couple times a night. Not only is it one of Leslie's favorite songs, but Oscar likes it too. Phoenix's album is solid and has a lot of other great songs, if you find this song to be catchy then check it out.

Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson - Relator

Both Leslie and I are big fans of this little album by Yorn and Johansson. Maybe it is the hook that gets everyone; whatever it is, I like it. Oscar has cut holes in the rug dancing to this little tune.

After Midnight Project - Take me home.

When I get into the car after Leslie is back from the gym this song is always blaring on the car's stereo. I'm wondering if I should be worried about this because all of these band members have lots of hair the opposite of me. Yes, Leslie likes some hard music I guess, but she doesn't go much harder then this. I'm surprised she isn't into Poison, Ratt, or Slaughter too.

DJ Earworm - United State of Pop 2009

Leslie was jamming out to this the other day, so I can't actually say it is played often. I thought I'd just throw it in to round off the post. I'm guessing Leslie will find this tomorrow and shoot me off a text about it, however, if I would have put this as one of her favorite song she would have deleted the whole post.

New Commitments

My sister in law told me about this story of this little boy. What an amazing story! I found myself crying as his mom recounted the events that took place. I find myself making new resolves to be a better mother and not take any moments I have with my Oscar for granted!

My Valentines

I sure do love my boys! They both make my heart bigger each day! They bring me so much joy, laughter and happiness. I feel so blessed to have them in my life. I have come to find out how much they are alike. It is kindof crazy! Physically they both have the bluest eyes, the same lips, the same skinny long toes (yuck!) and the same hairline (poor oskie!). As Oscars personality comes out more and more here are a few other similarities:

They both talk all the time. Oscar jabbers all day long and will throw out a few words here and there. But if you have been with my husband, you know he can go non-stop. One time when we were still dating we drove to Brigham City for his friends baby blessing and on the way up he talked the entire way up. As we got closer he looked at me and said you have been quiet. I said, I can't get a word in!

Deke could not LIVE without peanut butter and honey sandwiches. He let Oscar have his first bite the other day and Oscar almost ate the entire sandwich. Guess I will keep the cupboards stocked with PB and honey!

Deke has a LOVE for music. He is always surfing the internet in search of some little band who hasn't hit it big. He HATES the radio and most popular music. He loves live shows and could spend every night at a new show! Oscar has been sucked into Deke's love as well. Oscar will sit on his lap as he searches YouTube for any live concert of his new favorite band. At night we turn out all the lights and use Oskies light he got from Gma Maggie and dance around our place. Our own little club!
The other day Oscar out of the blue got a bloody noise. Deke gets these quite often in the winter time and appears his son is the same way!

Seriously way to many similarities! The list goes on....

I sure couldn't live without either of these guys in my life!! LOVE them!
