One Year Ago

My kids looked like this…

as we celebrated the wedding of my brother-in-law and new sister-in-law.  Happy First Anniversary John and Steph!  How time flies.  The kids look so much older even in just a year!

Which reminds me…it’s time to pick a picture for this year’s Christmas card.

So it begins…

PS. Thanks for all the great color comments! Very helpful!

Super Snack Monday

Let’s face it. Nobody likes Mondays. So, at the beginning of the school year I instituted Super Snack Monday. It works. It takes the edge off for everyone And distracts the kids from bothering each other at the end of a tiring day.

Welcome to today’s installment.

Busy Weekends

Today was one of those days…we knew they were coming with four kids.  Four kids with four different places to be.  A friend took one to a birthday party.  The grandparents took another to a college basketball game.  That left 2 others for the parents. 

I was off to a basketball game with dd1.  An exciting game where she scored a point, her second of the season, and continued her awesome defense.

DH got the longer day at a gymnastics meet a few hours away.  The gymnast before the meet…

…and after…

It’s all worth it if at the end of the weekend you end up with smiles like these!  By the way, that’s a first place medal on beam and second on bars! I am so proud! (DH said she was so nervous before the meet she was shaking. What a recovery!)

And, I fell in love with some yarn and patterns over the weekend.  The Rocking Sock Club 2010 has begun!  Love this “Happy Go Lucky” color! Can’t wait to knit me some bobbles!

What did you do this weekend?
