Sharing the beauty that is everyday. A little sneak peek into our week(s) via iphone pics.
I found a theme of me in bed or laying down and kids snuggling in. This shows me two things - 1) I have been too lazy lately and 2) I am tired b/c I am never left alone. Need more sleepy. ok - maybe 3 things - I also love their snuggles and have to soak them up while I can.
A valentine's day card Bethany made for my mom. She wanted me to draw a cupid and when I said I'm not sure I can - she took matters into her own hands. My favorite part is the belly button.
The kids are a wee bit into minecraft in our house. It started with Wes but has since spread to the other two as well. I feel like we are constantly talking about it. And by we, I mean - them. I have always tried to be a good student of our children. To really know what they like, etc. I watched all the Star Wars and learned the lingo, I learned different video games, and am reading Harry Potter . . . but minecraft? It's just so over my head and I have been really dragging my feet on this one. But I'm sick of them saying things like "cool! Look at this, I just built this pond with an underground diamond cave and spawned some squid!" and thinking to myself that the kids have clearly been taken over by aliens. SO - I sat down last weekend and asked Wesley to teach me. After about 30 minutes I had had enough, and wasn't all that successful at it. Then a little bit later I saw this note on the computer. Moral of the story: be careful what you show interest in. You may get signed up for lessons:
They even planned a minecraft party with Bethany's new tea set. The two go hand in hand- obvs. :
Healthy eating is sometimes so pretty. I've had this meal several times this week. It's yummy and easy. Starting Monday I am going to go "hard core" again - which is only in comparison to the bags of chips and crud I've been eating this week. So hard to behave sometimes:
Oh look - here I am laying down again. And not alone. Act surprised please:
The Olympics, wine, and puppy snuggles. What a great evening:
A token picture of a sledding trip that went very wrong. It was so brutally cold - the wind was ripping the flesh right off my face. Two out of three kids ended up getting hurt and crying . . . but we did have a couple of good rides first. And now they can't say that I never take them sledding!
Happy Friday! It's the day that potatoes are most afraid of . . . FRYday!
But I'm not a potato . . . and I ain't scared.
