Kid Stories from today

There are days when my kids just do or say funny and strange things.

The first was funny! B likes to help me with her little sister and she likes to pick out the diapers! So today she picked out a diaper, a cover and her "WarmLeggers!" That actually sounds better than leg warmers!!

Now, I just came downstairs, it is 10:30pm, from the girls room. A was crying in bed. And when I went in to hug her, she didn't have a shirt on. Then I noticed there were no pants either. She was sobbing and I asked her what was wrong, she really couldn't tell me too much. But from what I understood, she said there was a bad dream and the clothes were itching her? Strange. I don't think I have ever undressed myself in my sleep! Think I should be worried??

Well, anyway, I am getting a haircut and color tomorrow - I CAN'T WAIT - maybe I will have to try red and be totally like Kelli!!! ;) Have a great weekend!!

I am SOOOOO Excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

And I will totally record this for all of you that don't have BBC2!!!!!!

I am going to have a PARTY!!!

The NO pic update!

Seems like I have had a lot of pictures this month! So here is a 'written' update!! The girls are loving school this week. B's teacher quit the week before school was supposed to start. The music teacher took over, but they managed to find a teacher last Thursday before school started. But she quit yesterday, the second day of school. AAGH!! The music teacher is still in there - but what a PIA (excuse the language, but it is really frustrating!!) I just want her to have a good school year and it isn't starting very well. A's teacher is a gem and so it is hard having one great experience and one bad experience.

Gem misses her sisters. She just looks around - and I know she is wondering why the house is so quiet!! On the other hand, I have been enjoying the couple hours with her because it is nice to spend time with her!! When there is only one baby, you really get to spend more time bonding!!

It is still hot here in Atlanta. Now I know that we live in the south and fall won't be here until October, but I really want to wear jeans. I am tired of my pudgy legs and I want to wear jeans. (Yes, I am pouting and whining. I learned how to do that from my girls!!)

But, it is great that the US Open is on tv this week - I love tennis!! I just wish that when I played, the ball would do what I want it to do! AND here is where I need your help girls - I have to get back to the gym. I thought that I would be there all week since school started. But I have not been able to mentally 'get' there, or even pull my workout clothes out of the closet. I was so looking forward to running - but all I have are excuses. So motivate me, bribe me, chastise me - whatever you think it will take for me to get me and my baby-fat to the gym!!

I am getting my hair cut on Saturday!! Whoohoo!! I can't wait to stop wearing ponytails - not quite age appropriate but they do pull the lines off my face!! And SATURDAY is the first HOKIE FOOTBALL GAME of the season!! I hope they manage to win this weekend. I can't wait to see what Beamer has in-store for us!!

Anyways, that is it!! Gem is up . . . talk to you later!

Kids say the most . . .


This afternoon I told the girls that I needed to clean the house when we got home from shopping. Do you know what they said?? "WHO IS COMING TO VISIT?" Does this mean I only clean when people come to visit?? Well, kinda.

I have to apologize to Summer and Kelli though, b/c when I did clean the house today, I realized just how out of control it was in here!! Thank you to both of you for not saying anything!!! The dust bunnies were totally in control of this house . . .

And I have not had any links in a LONG time, so enjoy . . .

Having a hard time getting your kids to eat?? Try this sandwich art!!

And having kids at 91!!
No comment.

And something I enjoyed as a kids, maybe I will get this for the girls!!

And Spike?? Dye the hair again!

Happy Birthday MOM!!

My mom has wanted some new pictures . . . so here are few new ones!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!! (I swear Mom, I have a great new pic to send you - snail mail - and it will go out this weekend!!) We had a fantastic time with Kelli and her kids - there are more pics to come but here are a few for my mom!! (And don't worry Mom, Kelli took lots of pictures too!)

Gem is growing like a weed! She is teething already - at least she is chomping on anything near her mouth, drooling and calmed by Tylenol!

While Kelli was here, we went to the pool, the Rodeo, Monkey Joes, scrapbooking stores, Ikea, watched SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, the kids got haircuts and we tried to get them to go to sleep before 10! But camping out in a room all together, they had a blast, no matter how tired they got!! A and B were really bored this afternoon. They asked when Munchkin and Bees were coming back because they had nothing to do . . . . aagh, like we have NO toys or anything to play with . . .

OOH, I have shoes!

Sitting up, with a little help from the chair!

Um, is that a camera again?

The Motley Crue!

Horse Rides at the rodeo!

Goats at the rodeo!

Another horse ride . . . rodeos get expensive!

But how can you say no to such cute kids???
I can't!

And a very special picture that we had taken . . . I am working on the scan to make it bigger, but I couldn't wait to share!!

Update . . .

The pictures from the last post were from Crankypants, on the Hyena Cart. SOMEBODY bid !!!!$192.00!!!!! to have some Crankypants made for her. SERIOUSLY, I will drive to PA Khara, if you can teach me to knit - if I can make $192 for a pair of KIDS KNIT PANTS!! I do think they are adorable but $192 . . . aaagh!!

I think that Goose would like one of these . . . they are at least only $5!
