Yep, they don't need much.

to entertain themselves. Just a wastebasket & a vacuum attachment. What keeps your kids busy?

thankfully, we were able to clean the attachment after we first caught him doing this...ickkk.

My Monday happies!

  • Natalie singing & kissing along to the Cranberries' song, Kiss Me....all while we are grocery shopping.
  • getting to chat with Janice & Lori.
  • watching Michael comfort his little sister because she was scared.
  • mailing out a ton of mail that had been neglected for WAAAAY too long.
  • left over steak & stir-fry veggies plus tortillas = super quick, super yummy dinner.
  • The kids playing tag with their Dad....can they smile any harder?
  • The change in the air....especially in the evening. Fall is that you?

Did you have a happy Monday too?

All urgent matters.....

need to be discussed with Daddy immediately. Even when he is Boston for a business trip.

Like, "Do you want ketchup or syrup for your food?".
And, "I'll give you the mustard."
Or, "Do you want some chickens? Daddy, do you see it, Daddy? It's right there...see it? smell it!".

"After, I take a baf, and brush my teef, I will read all the books to my babies so they can sleep." was relayed to Daddy too.

But, I think our favorite was, "Daddy, please come home and be wif us, right now". Nothing like pulling the heartstrings from thousands of miles away!

Am I the only one who absolutely LOVEs crayons? I love how they smell. I love how they feel. I love how they sound when they hit each other, when you are looking for that perfect color.I especially love my children learning with them.

What is your favorite color? The one you always go to first?

What it has come to.

Today was picture day at preschool for Natalie(little early, no?) Things were looking good...she actually looked at the camera. And then I got

the hand.

Who I am.

game playing, pepsi drinking, comedy watching, water lovin', east coast missing, photography learning, organizational wannabe, loyal friend, happy wife to 1, blessed mommy to 4.

Kelly put out a challenge of sorts....a challenge to me at least.

Her challenge:

step one: take your self portrait. no primping necessary.

step two: describe yourself in 25 words or less

step three: introduce yourself to the world (or at least me), by posting it to your blog. just make sure to leave a comment here, so i can make the blog rounds. or, if you're feeling lazy, just post your 25 word bio in my comment section. either way, i can't wait to get to know you just a wee bit better.
