Not sew crafty

okay, on a hob lob outing I spotted this cute clearance stuff, some soft really fun colored yarn type stuff with some elastic band florally stuff, don't know what ya call it cause I don't sew and Im not crafty, but total for all was $12.00 and I thought I could tie up some skirts for Monroe's upcoming Mermaid makeover party.

About half way through my tying, Roe slipped it on,

and decided she liked it better for a top.

Not Good

any suggestons? The crib mattress is at its lowest and Im not ready for him to be out of a crib, he is still my baby!


These two continue to crack me up with their little conversations, for example, discussing an apartment together when their in college, what they aren't even in kindergarten yet? I was informed in the above pic, "this is our favorite pose", what do you say to that? Strike a pose, there's nothing to it, I guess.

HOLY smokes

Im sad that we've gotten to the stage that Xander can no longer pass clothes down to Jude because he wears holes in everything. (no this isn't posed, his socks really looked like this!)

So have I mentioned that the little Mr. has become quite destructive lately, in the last two days he has flushed the metal toilet paper roll holder down the toilet and broken two of our wooden island chairs. What happend and Aww Ohh, Sorry are a few of his favorite lines of the week.

1. Im not a list maker, so this is difficult for me. I find freedom in winging it and don't like lists, piles or clutter.

3. My 3 sisters and I used to give back rubs and still do when we get together.

11. I LOVE a lot! God, family, friends and my job, and feel blessed and amazed at how much room in my heart to be passionate about these things.
12. I never thought I wanted girls until I had one.
13. I've never found out the gender of my babe, had an epidural, or given them formula, although I might try all three next time?
14. I faked that I was sick so I didn't have to go to a diving meet one weekend in highschool, (sorry Maren and Maggie).
15. I got a red jeep wrangler when I was 16 with a license plate that said, "if it ain't country, it ain't music" and drove it until I was married.

Pancakes n pajamas

In honor of P week, the girls made pancakes in pajamas today at preschool. Mrs.Hinkle, also decked out in her jammies, is having the parents pick the kids up in the room while they all pretend to be asleep. There is something so sweet about kids sleeping, even if they are only pretending.

34 and graying

My hubby is 34 today, he came downstairs where he declined my pancakes,what?! He proceeded to tell me, "I saw some gray today, and I didn't even have to look closely". Gray or not, he is still strikingly gorgeous, at least I think so... which reminds me of our song when we first met "carried away", George Strait. What was/is yours, I know you have one, and I wanna hear it?

Game on

Xander and Travis had their first b-ball game this weekend, I never realized how entertaining it would be to watch first graders play, they looked like they had a lot of fun.
