I'm Still LOST!

Thought you all should know!

Room By 3 y.o.

Anyone who has kids know...
sometimes words can get crossed,
there can be misunderstandings,
and sometimes...well, they just take things literally.

Recently, while getting the house ready for company
(because yes, unfortunately, sometimes it's not ready)
I told both of the kids for the 300th time to

why would I be surprised
when I walked into this?

Because, Geez, I guess he did what I asked.
I could vacuum!

A Quiet Moment...

I came across these pics while syncing my pictures to the new computer yesterday...
This is about as still as you can get this kid...
and if you accomplish this as a reprieve in the middle of the day...
you are guaranteed to pay.

At about 10:30 pm on the same night,
you'll remember these images in your head and regret them!

But, sometimes it's nice to sit and smile at that sweet face...
and remember he can, in fact, be still!

Since We Visited Last...

Somebody turned 6.

It was surreal.

I'm not old enough to have a 6 y.o., you see.

She was proud.
Bug decided that she wanted to opt out of a big bday ordeal in trade for a trip to the
American Girl Store.

So, we had a small family get together the weekend before the big day to celebrate.
Except, there's nothing really small about our family.
But, we had a great time!!

On her actual bday, we picked Bug up from school and headed out to the American Girl store!
Let me tell all of you who have never had the privilege...
it's pretty overwhelming!

Bug stayed focused though.
She picked out her doll with no fuss at all,
then set off to accessorize!

And now, meet Aisley...
I won't even try to explain how "Aisley" was named,
I'll just say it was a long process.

The guys were thrilled to follow up doll shopping with a trip to the Bistro!
Where we ate dainty little food!

Bug was thrilled with her bday trip.
It was a fun family day!

And, of course, Ace just wanted to know when his bday was...
so we could go back to the "Merican Doll Store" again :)

Happy bday Bug!
I can't believe how grown up and beautiful you've become in what seems like a flash!

Rumor has it...

That a certain blogger has the best husband IN THE WORLD and will be back to blogging regularly by the end of the day...
Only time will tell :)
