my blogging break

I am going to take a break from blogging right now. I think I need a break from it to gather more inspiration. Life is so busy for us right now and I am just so unmotivated to post. TTFN!

my five year old

We had a combined friend party with 11 kids. It was a blast. I loved how the cakes turned out and it was a fun learning experience. My friend did most of the making.

my THREE year old!

Happy birthday! Reese always shares his things. He is always sweet to his baby sister. He is very emotionally driven. He likes to help his sisters when they need to be rescued. He loves to play cheetah with his dad. Reese is very brave. He has a tender heart. I love him!

MY BABY TURNS ONE TODAY!!! Where has the time gone??

She has been the sweetest little girl. She understands me when i talk to her...mostly when i ask "whats in your mouth" and "no".

She is walking all over the place with no problem. She has yet to talk. She is starting to fight for things that she wants. She loves to eat audrey's polly pockets.

I love her so much.

my black hole

I have a pretty bad library track record. I have lost a book or two and turned countless books in late and thus, piling fine after fine into my account. They have yet to revoke my card. So, I finally got my library account all cleaned out and resolved all my money issues. I paid a ridiculous amount of money for a 'free' service. So, I was determined to keep my record clean. But of course, it didn't last and I lost this book...

I went on an obsessive rampage looking EVERYWHERE in my house. I pulled beds, couches, and drawers apart. I couldn't rest. I thought about where else I could possibly look, when I wasn't looking.
I hate paying double for something that was free.

I guess, I should keep better track of my checked out items.

Do you ever feel like an item in your house has just fallen into some black hole? Or that it has been dissolved in the fabric of time.? Can items become invisible or can they simply implode and turn into dust?
I could not fatham what had happened to this book. I had looked in every nook and cranny.

I almost convinced myself that the book just vanished until one day, I discovered it behind a bookcase in our "office" room...the ONE bookcase I did not obsessivly pull out and look behind until days later.

ahhhhhhhhhh, a huge sigh of relief. my mind can rest.

my halloween 2007

Halloween, was of course, really fun. We went to mom and dad's ward trunk or treat. It was a great activity and it is so much easier to go car to car than house to house. The kids LOVED it and so did I. Michael did not get dressed up this year...maybe next year!

I looked completely hideous...and the make-up really hurt my face! Jon said that I reallly didn't need that much makeup or costume to get into the witch character...perhaps he was right:) Audrey looked adorable so did Sadie. Reese was awesome! He really got into character. I loved that he chose to be a vampire! He was scary!
