There is always tomorrow

Yah, this is how I feel. All the time. It's the kids. I totally blame them! So this morning I got the e-mail I have been waiting for - Girl Scout cookies are in! $70.00 worth. Who ordered all those? Oh dear, I was going to start Weight Watchers today...

I have waited all my life (28 years) for this day - I braided my daughters hair for the first time! Emma looked so cute!

Oh my goodness

I think we need one of these little piggies! Now that we are down to 2 dogs again (Delbert went to doggie heaven Monday) I think we for sure need another animal. Derek - I just know that you will agree with me. How can we resist this cute little porker - te, he, he....Grandmas, if you truly love your grandkids you would get them one of these little mini pigs for Easter ;o) You don't need to mention it to Derek, he'll be just fine with it. In fact I asked him and he said it is a great idea! Yah, he said that. sure he did. Really he did.

Emma's cut and curl

Oh dear. We have a future hairdresser on our hands! I am watching my friends son today and Emma is so happy! I went into her room and this is what I found. She said she was putting his hair in piggie tails. Poor kid! She was also reading to him and wiping his nose. and forcing him to sit. and putting his feet up on the princess stool. There is no escape from her.

Jack made a sweet little note for his baby sister. On the only paper he could find. Perhaps I need to get some paper for him?

Since there was such a long break in my blogging I thought I'd show you some of my favorite pictures. Emma in her tutu on her 2nd birthday, I curled Em's hair in the next one (she looks so old), Jack with his fu man chu, Jack's first day of school at the bus stop, Emma at Thanksgiving (man was she posing!), Jack in the mud at a tractor pull, Emma with her "baby" Hazel, Jack with his new glasses, and with one of his creations. Love these kiddos.

oh baby

Look! My technical advisor is home from work sick today, so together we were able to figure out this blog header - halleluia!
Look at this sweet baby! She belongs to my nephew Branden and his wife Chantele. Her name is Charlotte and she is the sweetest e.v.e.r... She also already has more hair than Emma! Emma loves her too - she calls her baby Charlotte, and says they are best friends! She would love to get left alone with baby Charlotte, she would most definitely change her diaper, then she would fix her hair and feed her. And then she would put lip gloss on her. She is such a little mommy! Then this is miss Charlotte's papa, how sweet! Look at Jack's shirt - true?

Happy Valentine's Day!

Here is a little photo shoot we did this morning. I am no photographer (obviously!) but I am trying. This blog gets me to take more pictures so that's good. For some reason there is a dark spot on a lot of the pics, I promise my kids don't have bruises! I am not stupid enough to beat them in places that show! Just kidding, just kidding. maybe, sorta, kinda. Anyway, it is only 11:35 and I am now paying for giving them those big, beautiful suckers at 9:00 in the morning!!! They are bouncing off the walls...
Hope you have a great day ;o)

As you can see my technical team is working on my header.  Not going real well.  He, I mean they are going to get a second chance and then I am going fire him, I mean them and pay someone to set it up right.  How hard can this be?!!!  We can not figure how to get a picture to fit in that frame.  And yes, I must have that frame!!  Anyway, Happy Valentine's Day to you all!  I have a special photo session with my 2 favorite valentines today so hopefully I'll have another post later...

Hello Lovah

Hello Lovah. I've missed you. I haven't seen you since the last time I had book club. You haven't changed. You still make me feel so good, like I can do anything. Like I can sing, and dance. and like my voice is not annoying and everyone really likes to hear me talk. all the time. about everything. I love the way you taste on my lips. I have to admit, I had forgotten about you. until a friend reminded me of you this week. So I sent Derek to get you. He likes the way you make me feel too. wink, wink. I am looking forward to our time together later this afternoon (yes I said afternoon!). When the kids are napping, we can sit down together for the first time in months. We need to catch up. I'll be looking forward to you all day....

This is what I did this year for Jack's Valentines for school. I got the idea online. I think they turned out cute and he loves them. And no I did not just grab the sucker out of Emma's mouth (at 8:30 in the morning) and dig the wrapper out of the trash so I could put it back together and make this Valentine real quick to put on my blog...
This next pic is Emma eating her breakfast this morning. She was talking to Sarah Jane (her favorite babysitter) and Uncle Chris and his puppy on her blackberry ;o)

I just got an email from People magazine about Jennifer Aniston and her "sizzling bikini". I'll be slitting my wrists right after I finish this bag of Doritos!!!!

It's Complicated

I just saw the funniest movie tonight - It's Complicated.  It was so good!  The best line this guy says to his ex wife "I love it when you smell like butter".  Sounds like something Derek would say!  If you haven't seen this - you need to!  Ok, so does anyone know how I can get a picture in the frame in the header of my blog?  I can't figure it out... I am starting to realize why i quit this stupid blog = I am computer illiterate and can not figure anything out!!!  Ugh...We have gotten several inches of snow and it is blowing like crazy so I am hoping school will be cancelled tomorrow - then I can stay in my jammies all day long ;o)  and we can make Valentine's cupcakes, yum!  Is anyone reading this?  Leave a comment!


Here is our newest addition - Hazel. I still can't believe I talked Derek into another dog!! I got her for my birthday. She was just 8 weeks in these pics but she is about 4 months old now. She is so sweet. Emma thinks Hazel is her little baby - she puts her in her baby beds. Poor Hazel!

Let's start over!!!

Ok, sorry it has been so long! For all 5 of you that read this, I am going to be better about updating - I promise!! Look how big these kiddos are! Emma isn't a baby any more, boo-hoo;o( She loves her baby dolls, princesses, makeup and anything pink! She talks so much, her favorite word right now is "turds"! ut oh! She says "guess what's in my diaper? Tuwds!!!". Hope this passes soon! Jack is doing so good in Kindergarten. He loves school and is already reading! We have been so busy as usual. we got a new puppy too - just what we needed!! I will post pictures of her next.
