Wierd Things ...

Well, Kelli, you tagged me . . . and I am so not weird!! Just kidding . . . I am so weird!

1. I am a morning person.

2. I can still sing commercials that I heard on tv when I was a kid... remember . . . Crispy Critters, how do you do ...

3. In fact, I love music from when I was a kid so much, that my girls favorite songs are the B'52's Love Shack, Everybody Have Fun Tonight by Wang Chung, and Everybody Wants to Rule the World by Tears for Fears. We have so much fun in the car!!

4. I hate wearing shoes. I would go barefoot everywhere if it weren't for dirty, icky floors.

5. I still sleep on my side (from when I was pregnant) with 3 pillows. It is just so comfy!!

6. I pick at scabs. I just can't let them be . . . they have to come off.

7. I love to eat Haggis, yummy!!!!!

Cleaning Up!

This weekend I had just HAD it with our game/art/activity closet! So, DH installed some new shelves and I organized it! We managed to put shelves along the inside right wall too - so there is so much extra space! It looks great! Dh want to know how long it will last like this - I think at least 2 weeks!! (You can click on the pics to see completely up-close organization!!)



And the girls wanted us to bunk their beds! They love it! And it makes their room seem so big!! I think we are going to move their dollhouse in there so they can play in their room. Plus Gem thinks it is fun to climb the ladder - so if we put all the big girls stuff in one room, we can try to keep her out there!

The Season is Almost here . . .

And Gem needed her football watching outfit!!! I tried to embellish a shirt for her - but I think I might have to do it over - the sewing is really wonky!!

The first day . . . can you believe it???

At the Stop!!
Here is Gem after her sister's went off to school this morning!

This was the other day . . . the girls had a blast on some new toys that our neighbor gave us!! I thought they looked so cute!

What have I been doing for the past 12 hours?

Well, after Kelli and the crew left . . . it has been just pretty calm around here!

Took the girls to the rink for ice skating lessons!
Cleaned the house!
Watched a very exciting So You Think You Can Dance Show!!
Then this morning, enjoyed a couple nice cups of coffee!
Went out and saw Cloth Diapers (Yup, like Gem uses) at TARGET! Bum Genius!!!
Took the girls to Kohl's to buy some clothes and take advantage of Tax Free!!
Came home, Gem actually took a nap and the big girls and I watched Aquamarine (cute movie!)

For the weekend:
Either go for a walk with the family tomorrow morning or go to a parade
Upload pics from Kel's visit - although she has all the pics since my camera was either dead or charging the whole time!
Find and install new lights in the kitchen ceiling.
The girls have a neighborhood Kindergarten Round-up on Sunday!
That is it!! No tennis, no parties, no big plans!! I love it!
