—Luke Skywalker to C-3PO (referring to Tatooine)
It was inhabited by poor locals who mostly farmed moisture for a living. Other activities included used equipment retailing and scrap dealing
However, it would still play a role in galactic events, serving as the home of Anakin Skywalker and the place where his son Luke would be kept safe until his early adulthood. ***
i wish i could be an expert on something....even if it is all just completely fictional...would that be a waste of time??:)

so, the kids love to dress up. audrey is always cinderella, but she has taken a shine to the black wig that we have. audrey is a month younger than the girl she is standing next too. why does she look like a giant in this photo?
reese is more versatile, here are some of his looks....
his toungue is in a weird place in his knight outfit...(dont be alarmed). reese will also dress up as snow white , but i dont have a picture of that one :) they have great imagination s!
audrey has not accepted the fact that is is cold here. she has a really hard time dressing warmly and she refuses to wear shoes and socks half the time. she is a summer girl. here she is in her undershirt with her belly showing...i will have her dressed for the day and then she will come out in a completely different outfit...ahhhh...the independant 4 year old.

i was so devestated by the events that transpired during the late evening and all thru the night.
so, basically bedtime is a constant battle with reese. he is up 20-30 times before he finally gives in to his worst enemy, no, no...his arch enemy...calmness and serenity...and then finally sleep. i have tried no naps, short naps, long naps, running him around outside, bedtime stories...etc. we have had a routine at bedtime since he was born. brush teeth, read a book, then bed. but for some reason, he absolutely will not stay in bed and fights it will every fiber of his being. he falls asleep last and gets up first.
so after he fell asleep around 9:30 (we layed them down at 8:15, audrey will try to negotiate another drink or something, but she usually stays down and goes to bed.) my night was just begining. sadie was wide awake until about midnight. i fed her at 11:00pm. she has always been easy, and not much of a fusser, but for some reason...maybe it was our dinner....she was wide eyed and fussy/fidgety...so after she dozed off around midnight, i tried to trick myself into believing that i would get some zzzzzzzzz's about an hour later reese started yell/crying. you know that sound? it is not just crying, but forcibly projected yelling SLASH crying. i wait a few minutes to see if he will calm himself down, but i cannot stand that noise for very long...so i go in and tell him to calm down and go back to sleep. he says okay and does.
then another hour and half later, the same thing happens with reese. then sadie is passing gas, so she is starting to fuss...then reese again. then sadie, then audrey chimes in and starts yelling "MOM, MOM, MOM..." at the top of her lungs, she has to go to the bathroom, but is too afraid to get up in the dark. then sadie wakes up agian, by this time it is about 5:30am. she is crying, so i get up and give her her pacifier like 4 times in a matter of 30 minutes. by then, everyone was "GETTING UP FOR THE DAY":) i usually get up at 5:30am b/c that is when the girl i babysit gets here. but i didnt have to babysit her today, so last night i naively thought "oh, good, i will get to sleep in till 7 b/c i dont have to babysit". so, that was my night/early morning. i suppose i need to accept the fact that i no longer will have stretches of sleep more than 2-3 hours long. the sooner i embrace it the easier it will be. now i am laughing at how commical it was and how silly my kids are. but at 6am it was another story...
