The artist in Natalie

Lately Natalie has discovered the joy in drawing. Since she can't be trusted with crayons and eats the markers we introduced her to the Etch- a- Sketch. She absolutely loves it. She carries it around everywhere. I think it is so cute when she lays down on the floor and is completely enveloped in whatever she is drawing. When she is done she always shows us her picture for our approval! I love you Natalie.

You are never too old to enjoy the wonders of Static Electricity!

Brianna and Jordon have become quite the duo. Actually they have become my reason for Advil, time outs, self indulgence in all things chocolate, and all loss of sanity. Silence is never good when they are together. Two days ago I experienced one of these moments where there was no noise and I instantly knew I was in for it. I rushed from bedroom to bedroom finding only empty rooms and then heard that high pitched chuckle that only Brianna can carry... coming from my bathroom. Making my way through my bedroom about to open the door to the bathroom I recognize an all to familiar smell.. peanut butter. I pushed the door open and the two of them just looked and me and laugh hysterically. With spoons in hand they had decided to paint the bathroom walls with peanut butter. I didn't know whether to laugh or yell so I handed them the wet wipes and told them to start cleaning. It was about this time that I realized that Natalie had been stepping in a huge glob while I was talking to them, and then Jordon pointed out that Sophie (our cat) would need to be cleaned as well. Yes, they painted the cat as well! Walking back to the kitchen with the peanut butter and spoons while the kids were cleaning the bathroom I couldn't help my self but take a spoon full of peanut butter my self! Thinking about it... they actually had a pretty good idea. Do you ever get hungry when in the bathroom?

Just Enough time

Incase you were all wondering what the least amount of time it takes three children to become elbow deep in sugar it is 1 minute. I discovered this the other day after moving my car in to the garage... I kid you no longer!
