Sunny, Quiet, Lovely Sunday

Chase ate a great big hearty supper so I’m cautiously optimistic that things will only get better.  Please let them only get better!

Well, another weekend comes to a close.  Even though I wish we had another day and I’m so not ready for it to be Monday tomorrow we ended on a pretty Read the rest of this entry »

I Love Weekends!

How I love the ACC show!  This is the third year I’ve made the trek down there for it but the first time I’ve been for free and you know how I love free!  It felt so luxurious to wander around and actually have some time to look and think and sometimes talk, you know, all at the same time.   Read the rest of this entry »

Happy Friday!

Another week over.  Tomorrow is just jam packed with stuff to do.  ACC here we come!  I’m in the market for some new mugs.  I bought a set of two nice porcelain mugs not too long ago but as we were down to nothing two just isn’t going to cut it.

I can’t believe how excited I am to go to this show.  Ben and Chase are going to have some daddy daughter time because I just don’t think she’d have much fun with my yelling don’t touch that! the whole time.

I’ve got my battery charged, I’m ready!  Stay tuned.

Crazy Craft Day

We watched an hour of tv this morning and I hadn’t had one single additional request to watch by the time we left here today at 3:30!  I’m patting myself on the back here big time for keeping busy during a day spent at home.   Read the rest of this entry »

Super Toy

I’ve mentioned Magna-Tiles a bunch of times before but really, they’re a super toy.  They’re are single most played with and versatile toy at our house.  Legos are a close second and maybe one day Tinker Toys will be too but Chase just loves these things.   Read the rest of this entry »

Did You Hear?

Yes Sir, it’s true.  She went right over and then demanded to know just what the hell had happened.  V. Cute.

This whole sitting propped up thing is changing everything!  I don’t know how or when this happened.  Didn’t we just bring her home!?  I didn’t even really think to try to see if she could do it.  Ben’s the one, the kamikaze, who propped her up on the couch first.  I just had her lying down all over the place.  Poor girl because it turns out that she loves to sit up and look around.   Read the rest of this entry »

On Monday I was actually ready to commit.  After dropping Chase off in the morning I went straight to the camera store and you know what?  It was closed.  The stinking place was closed.  The sign on the door said they were moving as of March 22, which is oh, a month from now.

Homemade Valentines

I can’t even remember how many cupcakes I’ve consumed in the last 24 hours.  Probably fewer than Chase but I know she’s got me on candy.  She had candy this morning before she had Cheerios.  I can remember my mother giving me little plastic hearts filled with Smarties for Valentine’s day.  I wanted something similar for Chase but the closest I could find was a little heart tin filled with m & m’s.  They taste nothing like Smarties but I think it’s probably the closest substitute.  She was very pleased.   Read the rest of this entry »

So Many Tiny Parts

I dug it out of the closet.  I had NO idea that what was inside the box was a whole pile of bags full of teeny tiny little plastic bits that had to be assembled per the 15 pages of instructions in order to look anything like the picture on the box.  So many tiny pieces!  It did seem to be fun to play with though so I guess it was worth it.
