a little trip down memory lane...

I love the movie "Chipmunk Adventure" (and have passed that love onto my children - Gracie is watching it right now in fact). When we lived in Taiwan, Renee and I would watch it (with Chinese subtitles on the bottom) and imagine what an awesome movie it would be made with real teenagers. When I saw this on YouTube it reminded me of those memories and I couldn't stop laughing (mostly at the men in their sweater dresses). This is hilarious! ENJOY!!!!

the dog

So if you are looking for something to do in your spare time (HA) you can go to:

and help my brother name his dog that will be born soon.

He would probably appreciate the votes and feedback......Just a thought...

Listen to this conversation that Adam and Grace had today in the car:

GRACE: Hey, hey Mommy, I wanna be a butterfly when I grow up!

ADAM: You have to be a bug to do that!

GRACE: Nooooo...that's silly.....

Ok, seriously, is that not the cutest thing ever! I just laughed and laughed - it totally made my day.

the time has come

Well I am officially a blogging slacker (what's new)! It has been over a month since my last post. We have had a busy few weeks around here and I am finally starting to catch my breath.

At the beginning of January we got to watch our darling little niece Eden for five days while her parents were in Equador. We loved having her and could not kiss her cheeks enough. My kids were sad to see her go (except Davie, I think he was glad to get his mom back).

I love having a reader in the house. Lily is so good about reading to the kids when they ask. Don't you love Gracie's outfit...
My friend Heather made this hat for Adam when we lived in Washington. Davie discovered it a few weeks ago and will not take it off. Seriously he wears it almost everyday all day, whether we are in or out. I think it is pretty cute!

Oh, how I love these kids! Don't they look like little heathens in their jammies and messy hair...
We celebrated Gracie's fourth birthday on the 3rd! She is so big now.

The Great Purge....I decided that my closet really needed some attention. As you can see below we have a very small closet so good organization is essential. I think between Scott and me we filled about five garbage bags full of clothes and shoes to donate. It felt so good to get rid of it all.

These boys are buddies! I love them...
