Big Week

Well, I lost 2 lbs (Yeah), gained a shed in my "back yard" and saw my bumpy dirt "front yard" turned into a flat graded pad ready for a cement foundation.

Kimmee is progressing on her potty training, but not at the speed at which I would like (duh). She went no.2 on the potty chair on Tuesday and got so excited while doing it, she jumped up to see what was in the pot before she finished. It was gross, but I had to laugh. I gave her a pez dispenser for the effort.

Caroline is spending the weekend at Grandma Barker's. It's good for her and wonderful for me. I love her so much, but 3 years is just not my favorite age. I wonder how I'll feel about 3 when she's sixteen :).

Andrew is rolling over in his crib now. Just today, he rolled on his back after he woke up and called me into the bedroom to play peek-a-boo with him. When I looked at him in the crib, he was pulling a blanket over his face and then removing it to giggle at me.

If you haven't had a chance to check out my new recipe, look in the upper right hand corner above the picture of Lily. It'll make you laugh.

What Are Wii Doing?

I have found a new vice to vex my peaceful existence in Meadview. Randy insisted that I try Grandma's Wii Fit, but at first I was not impressed with what the game looked as if it did. I'm now a believer. This thing kicked my trash round and around again! I had too much fun Tuesday and Wednesday, and now I am sore beyond my expectation! Well, I'm off to torture myself again at Grandma Pete's. Oh, what a mother will do to get a few minutes of peace :)

Andrew Bundles Up

The kids and I bundled up, unnecessarily, for a little family walk today. Andrew, for some reason thought the "warmie" I put on him was the best thing since peanut butter and jelly.

That's my happy boy.

Girls and Curls

Caroline and Kimmee loved "girling" up on Saturday. When I finally took her hair out, it reminded me of the permed pyramid do that was popular in the early 90's. Actually it screams TIFFANY! When all was said and done, Caroline wanted to give me a kiss for all the hard work that went into her hair-do. This pic is set as the coveted main screen spot on my cell phone :)
