I've decided to quit blogging for a while.  I just can't seem to find the time often enough.  I'm on facebook and if you know me, you know how to find me!  Otherwise I will send pics to Grandma and she sends them on to everyone she knows.  So one way or another you can keep in touch.  

ttfn, it's been fun!

I admit it....

I'm a lame blogger.  It's really a time thing.  I blog in my head everyday.  See things that would make great photos and stories but I'm just short on time.  I do enjoy following a few blogs and when you search you can sit for hours going from blog to blog.  So internally I think I really am a blogger - I just can't get my posts done.  

Anyways - here are a few recent pics that I think are do very cute - do you agree??

Have a great week.

it's the little things...

 A few pics from our trip to the park this week.  She gave the "BIG slide" a try for the first time...

Picnic time with her cousin whom she adores!

A few funny things I've noticed around the house....

Randomly placed empty drink boxes
(oops posted this sideways!)  little shoes on tables.
burnt out night lights and tub toys by the kitchen sink.
Random items on the kitchen counter.
A creme egg waiting to be stepped on.

Stickers on my still new fridge....
Little cups and party bags hanging around.
Ain't life grand!?!?!?

10 days

have again passed since my last post.  Should I give this up??  

Here's what the kids were up to this morning.  My girl is well for now but the baby boy has a yucky cold & cough.  So pitiful to hear a little one with congestion.  Do you see a pattern here or is it just me?  How can one or the other of my kids be sick constantly?  I try so hard to feed them well.  Maybe I need to bump up the junk and see if that helps!!

She took a tumble down a couple steps at the Grandparents house (under my watch!) a week ago.  She's all healed up now though.

Have had a busy weekend of birthday parties.  Pool parties for 3 & 4 year olds.  I'm the nervous, overprotective one at the pool parties.  Is it just me or is the idea of a bunch of 3 & 4 year olds in the pool for a birthday party a bad idea?  Maybe it's just me, both passed without an incident....

No school this week, hoping to squeeze some fun activities in over the next few days.  Hope you do too!!

What's new

Well since my last post we've had a few things going on around here.  Most exciting was celebration the little girl's 3rd birthday.  We had 2 very fun parties, one for family and one for little friends!  We are still trying to beat this cold.  The baby boy got it, of course, but only has an infrequent runny nose.  My girl on the other hand has been left with a nasty cough.  Doesn't seem to bother her much, but it bugs me.  Since preschool started we have only been cold-free for one month out of the five so far - November.....   ARGHHHH.

Just tracked the last of the Super Bowl on the internet.  Must've been a pretty exciting game there towards the end.  We are a cable/satteliteless family and have been for over 3.5 years now.  I can't believe it!  I miss it at times, but thus far, not enough to cave.  We have plenty of tv as it is with ITunes (mostly for my girl) and weekend movie rentals.  Still, I must say now that I've thought of it, I don't know a single other family off the top of my head who doesn't have either cable or satellite.  When I do get a chance to watch it, my favorite shows are on the Food Network:  Everyday Italian and Barefoot Contessa.  I think EI may have changed to Giada at Home...

Well I hear that my hubby just arrived from a weekend off-island so I must sign off.

lysol, hand washing, airborne....

Here we go again.  My girl started sneezing in the early hours of today.  She had breakfast before 6am and is now happily watching Dora on her ipod.  Her nose has been running with regularity since she got up.  Just in time for her birthday celebrations we have planned for tomorrow & Saturday.  ARGHHHHH.  Somehow I knew this was coming.

I'm starting to feel the delirium of 4 1/2 hours of sleep.

On a funny note, my girl is talking about guinea pigs all the time and what they do and do not do.  For example, she will ask me for some yogurt and then tell me that guinea pigs don't eat yogurt.  She likes to slip these comments in most when she is doing something she isn't supposed to be doing.  This is actually very effective as it distracts me from the issue at hand and usually makes me giggle.

Well I can see that the delirium is setting in on her now too - she just told me that Ming-Ming is nuts.  A comment that those with young children may understand.

The Ipod is no longer entertaining - so I better sign off.

Praying that I get through today.......

Yep, he can already stand up in the crib!
