I just finished our 2010 book on Shutterfly. It took me forever, but I did it! My goal for 2011 is to complete a page as soon as I download the pictures. I guess that means that I have to have another goal to actually download the pictures shortly after I take them. Uh oh that means I have to remember to have my camera with the battery charged ready to take the pictures. We'll see how this goes...
As the mother of three boys who has lived and breathed Star Wars, I really loved this commercial (along with so many others). "The force" is very strong in our house. I will never forget when my oldest son pretended to open the automatic doors at Target with "the force." At one point my middle son turned everything into a light saber. He had a one track mind.
Top Ten Things
My Middle Son has turned into a Lightsaber!
1. a vacuum cleaner attachment
2. a broken stick of jingle bells
3. the glow stick he received at the Christmas Eve service (Although it was safer than a candle, it proved to be much more distracting.)
4. a french fry
5. a rake
6. a blue plastic baseball bat
7. any stick in any yard
8. the stick left after he finished his corn dog
9. two different color crayons and he had a real battle in his hands
10. a spatula, after he finished licking the cookie batter off
I sure do love taking care of these three boys, and I am really going to miss not sleeping in and hanging out with them tomorrow. The snow has melted, we are home from our Super Bowl party and I have spent far too much time on tumblr. I really still haven't quite figured it out. Between facebook, twitter, blogs, and now tumblr I'm quite confused. They all seem to link to each other as well. If anyone uses tumblr please let me know how you like and/or use it. Anyway, there are great pictures, one after another on this tumblr site entitled "Sweet and Lovely Things" where I found the Mother Teresa quote above.
Not only do I love the ones I take care of in my HOME, but I truly love my home as well. Blogs have caused me to notice and appreciate simple things, little details, silly everyday things that went unnoticed. I have to say there was a time when I would have laughed at some of the things I find myself taking pictures of these days (a grilled cheese sandwich).
Here are some pictures of things that I love and now notice in my home.
The snow is beautiful and the time at home with the boys has been a blessing. Although I am growing tired with three boys and one me for two days in the house, we are having so much fun!
I ended up keeping all of these chalkboards that I had intended to sell. I love them together on my bathroom wall. Each family member drew a snow scene a month ago. We actually took them down and drew hearts today.
In addition, to drawing with chalk, we have been doing lots of coloring too. Coloring and eating!!! Yipeeeee! All of that to say, boy I hope they have school tomorrow! Ha!
I love the fall! I went to the Flower Market on Seventh Street and found wonderful fall flowers. They had a great selection.
I can hardly believe that my baby boy turned two this week!
He just got glasses two months ago and doesn't he look cute!
I borrowed a friend's Cricut and fell in love with it!
I used it to cut out these vinyl two's.
They peel right off. How cool is that?!?
What handsome cousins! They are best buds.
My brother's son is on the left and my middle son is on the right.
These two were born exactly one month apart.
