You know you are a mom when... think to yourself, "I'm hungry so maybe I should see if the kids didn't finish of their bowls of oatmeal from this morning."'re never sure which kids' bed you'll wake up in in the morning. open the trunk of your car to find that your double stroller isn't there and you have no idea what random street corner you left it on. have to wipe sand out of your bed before you go to sleep everynight (from your children's shoes). think it's all worth it for this:

Once Upon A Time...

Five years ago...

Logan is 5! How is it that this little crazy kiddo is 5 years old?!?!?! For the most part Logan is easygoing but he also has an extremely stubborn streak that rears its head ocassionally. Logan is the comedic relief in our family...he sings, he dances, he says the craziest things and frequently wears the nuttiest get-ups. He is a very loving kid and likes nothing better than to snuggle with anyone in the family.

Random bits of randomness

My blogging has nose-dived again. But I really want to set things down so that I have the funny stories, the little quirks, the feelings to read about and share with my kids in the future. As such, this post is about the little random bits of randomness of our daily life.

I guess I haven't had my toenails painted since the girls have been home. After having them done (and red) recently, Des and Bri kept inspecting them and saying "Owie, owie, owie!" They thought all of my toes were bleeding and I was hurt.

Logan recently convinced me that he is responsible enough for his very own pet. So, I let him pick one out and name it. Logan is the proud owner of a snail named Love whose favorite food are brussel sprout leaves.

The girls' first party dresses!

Fun with the hose for Logan!

Bri splashing!

Des is always the comedian!


Jack takes his strawberry picking seriously!

The girls take it seriously too!

Finally! A half decent photo of all my four beautiful babies!

Ole' blue eyes!

Even weapon-welding Logan is cute!

Once Upon a Time...

One year ago...

Recently, Des and Bri turned 3 years old! It is amazing how much they have changed and grown over the course of a year. A year ago they were babies half a world away and now they are little girls; running, singing, potty-trained, dancing, going to school, feeding themselves.
