Hodge Podge

So, I've been a blogging slacker lately.


Happens to the best of us, I suppose.  My goal is to blog two or three times a week.  Being that this is only the sixth post this month, I totally missed out in some perfect sharing opportunities. So I am going to post a hodge podge of lovely pictures!


I think this might be my new favorite picture of Owen.

Looking so intently at what Bethany is drawing.

Cheese...

 Making numbers flashcards.

Making a complete mess.

And another mess, just this time on his face.

B has been earning small privileges for all green-light weeks at preschool. Last week she earned Fritz's for the family. She was so proud!
Okay, so I promise that March will be better & I will post more frequently. If not, rest assured that I'd be in the doghouse {er} toybox.

Let, Let, Let all the Children

Bethany sang at church a couple of weeks ago. She loves the choir.   I just love her lil' shy girl facial expressions.

She's just too much!

Broke on Valentine's Day

 When kids don't have money to buy you a Valentine's Day Present...

They...


like to....


improvise....


then they might try to....


escape from Time Out!

there are times

There are times where motherhood is rather stressful. Having to work all day just to come home to clean, cook, discipline, and love. Don't even get me started on the impossibility to find times for the husband and myself. There are times where you run and run throughout the entire weekend and you are.just.worn.out!

But then you take a day off of work to help celebrate Valentine's Day at the 3 year old's preschool.   All those late night and exhausting days seemed to be worth it.  I mean...look at the outfit she puts together. Isn't see scrumptious!

But before preschool...it is time for McD's.
 

At the party I watch Bethany totally comfortable with where she's at.


 It was so much fun for me to see her at her school & to help host her party.  They had ice cream sundaes, made necklaces, hit the pinata and exchanged cards. 
It was so rewarding to see her in her preschool with all her friends.  After seeing her in her school, I am so grateful that we chose that preschool a year ago. It is a perfect fit for Bethany.   I can't wait until when Owen gets his chance to attend her school in a short 1 and 1/2 years!

We've got a problem

Hooded Towels.  Yeah, I am going there.

These kids certainly have a problem...

perhaps an addiction...

See...their heads can't be untoweled...

they've even started enabling each other...

 Is there a Hooded Towel Anonymous we can start considering? 
I'd hate for this to crutch to hold them back from other their hopes and desires to have a normal, hooded towel-free life!

becoming friends...

Thanks goodness these two have each other.  Being snowbound the last few days, they certainly have found a way to entertain each other.  They are becoming pretty good friends, you know...when they aren't fighting over 1 toy among the 18,383,292 toys in this house.  

But there are times between their fighting and whining, where they are absolutely adorable.
 Like when they prance around the house holding hands with their bear.

Or when they climb in bins, which were placed in the toy box.

Or reading books together. 

Yup...it is official these two are becoming good friends. And I've become one blessed mama!
