Tiny bit of snow

Joshua built this castle and wanted me to blog it for him.

We got the smallest dusting of snow this morning so of course we have to play outside in it.
I'm not sure if we are having any fun?

Good Kitty

The kids like to play puppy and kitty and eat out of the little dishes we have. I thought these were too cute with the sun shinning in.

Ethans New Crib

This is what Ethan got for Christmas. I love it. He thinks I'm trying to put him down for a nap so I'll have to take the pictures quick.
No blanket = no nap now get me out.

This is what I discovered after 1 week of having my dream crib. Ethan has been teething on it. I've alread ordered a teething pad cover. That little teething turkey.
He was trying to get out and fell back. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before he figures it out .

We Have a Mouse in the House

These are some of the things I've been finding in my kitchen lately. I bag of buns ripped into and eaten.
Then there are the boxes of cracker. All of the cereal boxes look like this too.

I even found a bag of potatoes of all things that had been eaten through. The problem is I know exactly who the mouse is and I just can't bear the get rid of him. He is the cutest thing in the world and weighs over 20 pounds. We have become quite attached to him over the last 18 months, and we named him Ethan. Yes all this evidence points to my son. He is the mouse. This sweet child of mine will climb into the snack cuboard, close the door and just start eating what ever he can get his hands on. I have never had a more "mouthy" baby than Ethan.

Flat Tire

My bad day started at 7:05 this morning when I woke up and realized I over slept and should have been up at 6:30. Shaun is out of town on a job interview so now I have to get all three kids up to take Sarah to school. I get Sarah to school on time and as I am pulling out of the parking lot I got to close to the gate and torn a hole in the side wall of my tire. I'm still not exactly sure how this happened but I plan on checking out the gate the next time I'm at the school to see what I could have snagged the tire on. I heard the scrape and thought I had just ruined the paint. I pulled over to take a look and to confirm that I had in fact ruined the paint and put a dent in the side. Did I mention this is a brand new 2007 van purchased 6 months ago? Yeah, that's what I said. I got back on the rode and felt like I was driving over washboards. I pulled over again and thats when I noticed the flat. I then called my friend (crying) who came to help me change the flat. During the tire change the car fell off the jack (thankgoodness we were all away from it and no one was hurt). So now we need to make sure the brake was not damaged when the van fell. To sum it up we got the spare on and made it safetly home all before 9:00 am. If not for the other two children to care for I would have called it a day and gone back to bed. On a more positve note I now know how to change a flat tire and I am thankful to have the bestest friend in the world who I will thank which much chocolate and free babysitting.

My Job

I was informed by a wise sister today that it is okay to blog without a picture. I was under the misconception that nobody would read it unless it had a picture. So here is my cute story for the day.
Joshua wanted to do something dangerous the other day so I said, "NO" His reply, "Why are you always so mean." I said "Because I'm the meaniest mom in the whole world and that is my job." He says. "No your job is to cook." And on that note it is 4:15 so I better get to work and make something for dinner.
