Happy Belated Valentine’s Day!

We didn’t do much for the day – mostly just stayed in and played. I made cupcakes in the morning and the kids had fun helping me frost and decorate them in the afternoon. We made cards for daddy, but that was about it. Daddy also treated us right.� He gave me a new...

Bee Branded

How’s this for brand awareness? Do you recognize this bee? A Nasonex commercial came on yesterday and Sam saw it and said, “Look at that bee … I mean Cheerio guy mom!” Isn’t it funny how their minds work (and scary how quickly branding takes hold)?

Yesterday (actually Tues night), we had a bit of ice storm. It delayed some area schools on Wednesday, but preschool was open, so out we went. Fortunately, the roads were fine, it just took a bit to scrape the car. Here’s a few pics of some our landscape. Our nandinas Jasmine Crepe Myrtle

Name that Baby!

I’ve been curious to go back and look at the other kids’ baby pics. Can you tell what pic belongs to who? I’ll write the name in magic ink – just highlight the area to the right of the photo, using your mouse secret decoder ring. How many can you get right? #1. Sam...

This morning, Adam was sleeping with me in our bed when Wendy & Sam came in.  Sam brought books with him so I could read to him.  When he handed me “Jack and the Beanstalk”, Wendy said, “That book gives me bad dreams.”  And she gave me the saddest look.  Then she said, “But...

Logan Who?

Our poor neglected red-headed stepchild. Now that he’s 4 deep on the totem pole, he doesn’t get nearly the love or exercise he deserves. Logan has had a growth in his mouth for a while. It was a big ole bump around one of his teeth. We weren’t sure what it was, but it...

Pizza Party

I was inspired by a talk at my recent Mom2Mom meeting about involving kids in cooking. I hate to have the kids underfoot when I cook, but realize I should let them participate more. So, the other night we made pizzas. I figured if they made their own pizzas, they would be more excited...

Give’m all a little pat of butter

This is why, when you are setting the table, you don’t put the butter out first and walk away, leaving the kids unsupervised. Mike said he turned around to see Sam offering a fingerful of butter to his sister’s open mouth. Isn’t it nice when they share?
