This Just Cracks Me Up

My kids love movies, don't most kids? I try to limit how much tv they watch. We just got the movie Meet the Robinsons. There is one part that just completely cracks me up...which is why I got the movie for the kids. The dinosaur is being controlled by "bowler hat guy" and he's try to capture the boy. "bowler hat guy" says to the dinosaur, "why aren't you seizing the boy?"
The dino says, "Cause I have a big head, and little arms and I'm not sure how well this plan was thought through!"
For some reason that just cracks me up. Now back to the laundry, dishes, and house work!

At a Loss for Words

This is what I saw the other night when I went to make sure the boys were asleep in their beds. See that book by JM. Now , mind you, he can't read yet. He does recognize some letters but he can't read. Look at the title. Look closer! Can you believe it! My child took The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn to bed with him. How funny is that?? And how appropriate for this child.

Making Progress

Well, it took a couple days, including time off for good weather. My office/ craft room is doing much better. It's not 100% yet but I'm definitely able to work more in here now. I got rid of 4 boxes full of stuff as well as a large trash bag full of...well, trash. Here are my after pictures. Before

It's Not Saturday Night Fever

Oh no....nothing close to it....more like a Thursday morning fever. High enough that it made my eyes water and nothing would help but laying down. That was yesterday. Doesn't that sound like fun??
Tuesday night Little Peanut seemed quite warm and then on Wednesday she, I, JM, and Grasshopper all had major runny noses and coughs. By Thursday everyone seemed better except for me. I had planned to get ahead in my cleaning and purging this week since I don't have anything scheduled until Sunday.....needless to say I'm now two days behind in that. But the time has come.
My office/craft room is going to go through an overhaul today. Care to watch?? Here are the before pictures....

Did I miss something??

Has anyone noticed that the year 1/4 over??? I feel like I just woke up and realized that it's already April. My sister have both been doing well keeping up with their blogs. It's time to revisit my goals for the year and reevaluate them. I know I have some things to still focus on.
  • The first was my skincare routine. I've been doing good with keeping up but it's not quite working as well for me so I think I'll be making some changes. Morning and night will still be on the chart though.
  • Prayer time is a struggle for us. I'm going to make it a priority tonight.
  • Work-out at the Rec!! Well our pass expired in Feb. we just recently got it renewed. The boys are taking a swim class twice a week and that gets me there. Now I just need to use the 30 min. from the start of AJ's class to the start of JM's to get on the elliptical machine.
  • More organized...that has been happening but it is still an ongoing process. I've been getting rid of lots of stuff. LOTS OF STUFF!
  • as for my Pampered Chef's slowly picking up steam. I'm comfortable with the pace though.
I guess I will also focus on updating my blog a bit more too. For those of you who are interested one of my best friends from high school is an MK named Alex. He's currently riding his bicycle from Austin, Texas to Oregon but here's the interesting part. He's going through Mexico up the western coast. He's keeping a journal here and you can check it out. He's taken some great pictures and has some good commentary to go along with it.
More updates about the family tomorrow.
