M & M’s

December 30, 2007

ME: Micah, would you like some eggs and ham?

MICAH: Sure, I will try some.

ME: Hey Micah, do you like it?

MICAH: (after much deliberation) Hummm, it would go great with some Scooby Doo fruit snacks.


Almost forgot…

Micah’s Christmas program at preschool. Yes he was adorable. He sang ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town’ and didn’t forget one word. And yes, he kept his hands in his pockets the whole time. 🙂

New Year’s Resolution

December 27, 2007

Our resolution this year is to get rid of our dog. Totally serious here people. She is a six year old, unfixed rat terrier. She has papers, and comes from a championship blood line. Her name is Hattie. Very cute, I will post pictures later. Loves adults, not so great with kids under the age of about six. Which is a problem for us, since there are two of those people in our house. She is both an inside, and outside dog. She doesn’t run away if she is not fenced in (unfortunately for us). She walks well on a leash, doesn’t need to be kenneled if you are out of the house. The list goes on and on here people. If you know ANYONE who is interested, let us know. Otherwise she may end up as glue.

A couple more…

What a Christmas!

December 26, 2007

I think it took around four hours to get through all the gifts. All were very thankful and surprised, and happy and crazy! Sugar highs were had by all… and me, well let’s just say Santa was good to me this year. I am posting from my new, very incredible very huge screen laptop! I LOVE it, and Santa. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

For The Birds

December 24, 2007


Well, last night the girls and I strung six bags of cranberries, and some popcorn, all in the name of guilt. Steve got out this morning, in a foot of snow on our deck, and set up our little fir. I hung the berries and corn with lots of chirping birds in the background. I almost froze to death, but managed to snap a picture before the birds took over….

Dirty (house, that is)

December 21, 2007

There is no possible way to clean my house with Micah and Brody in it. No getting around it. It isn’t going to happen. Yesterday Micah peeled a clementine orange, and threw the pieces at Brody. Not just in one room. All over the house. Today, he got into the downstairs bathroom, and squirt soap, and shampoo and who knows what else, all over. Then he told Brody to do it, so he could blame it on him. Oh, they also had a sock fight with the basket of unmatched socks I have in our bedroom. Most of those are on the stairs. I need a vacation. A hotel would be nice. At least then someone else could make my bed. Maybe leave a mint on my pillow…..
