Wednesday...Sam turned in his Cereal box book report. Turning it in means giving an oral report. He read Dinosaurs before Dawn (Magic Treehouse) and called his cereal Din-os. It's a fruity O cereal with lots of protein.
We all went with the Webelos to the Air Museum for a field trip after school. 10 year old boys are pretty funny. I only had my own kids on the way home so we stopped by a new 7-11 to get a treat.
Thursday...Pack meeting. Isaac has an amazing Webelos leader. He earned his Scientist and Traveler badges. He also got his Colors to put the badges on.
Friday...No school for the end of the quarter. Daniel was home working so I took the kiddos out to lunch. This is Ruthie showing off her blanket.
Daniel and I went to dinner and the temple for date night.

As we were laying there, Sam asked if I was asleep. So I snored. Then this happened...
"Mom, guess what?"
"That was just fake snoring."
"No. One night I came into your room while you were asleep and I could hear you snoring."
"You did? What did it sound like?"
"Like this...*insert heavy breathing*"
"Oooh. Did dad hear it?"
"No he was asleep."
"Shh. Don't tell dad that I snore."
"I won't ever tell him..."
It's nice to keep some secrets from dad. So now that I've shared that with you, please don't tell Daniel that I snore! I really don't want him to find out!

"Take another picture mom. I want to see what the flash does." So I did. The flash filled the whole room and made him super happy. Silly boy!
One day he'll meet a beautiful girl who he wants to spend eternity with. When I show her these pictures and tell her it's hereditary, she better still love the heck out of my Silly Sam.

Make a Treat! With a ! .
Sunday, March 21, 2010
That was for how I have kept this particular string of posts going for over a year. Yep. We should all have a moment of "AWE" for just the fact that I've done it.
Thursday...Isaac got all the rocks we've collected from various trips and laid them out and then started chipping away at them. He's learning about rocks and soil, too. These rocks stayed on this little table all week until I told him to please put them somewhere else. They then got knocked off the table and chipped my wood floor. Darnitall!
Daniel wasn't gonna git home till 8, so we ran to the store and got donuts for a treat. Were you where I was today at 11 am? Yep. We enjoyed those donuts and all the crumbs and I drank soda, too!

Wednesday...Isaac was officially a Webelo. He went the week before, too, so he could do all the fun stuff for this month. This is the 4th chocolate cake mix of the week. The first was for cupcakes on Sunday night. Second was for Isaac's cake on Monday which stuck to the pan and then fell to the floor. Third was a more successful cake for Isaac on Monday. And this is just a middle of the week I want some chocolate cake for breakfast tomorrow cake.
Thursday...My mom called from a Master Gardener class she's taking close by to see if I would be home. She came by to visit for a little while. This is a picture Isaac drew for me. It's titled Last Day Of Winter. There is a pier with people watching the water, fishing and swimming. I think he's ready for winter to be over, too.
And just in case you were wondering, because I am so sure you are wondering, today marks 12 weeks until we are on a cruise ship sailing to Alaska. And 13 weeks until we are flying home to our kiddos. Who I actually miss already. I know. Dumb. But really. I do.

Then I started picking stuff out. You see those things in my sink? Every single one of them came from that bag. In fact, if you were to look more closely at the picture above, you wouldn't find a single one of those things in the bowl. But if you do, please let me know right away. I'm gonna add those to the casserole soon!
What are they? I call them horsey beans. That's what my grandpa called them. We had to eat them at my grandparents' house when we were young. I think they may have even come from his garden. We always had to eat the horsey beans. And I can even hear my grandpa saying Horsey Beans.
And Happy New Year.
And Hey Cookie.
So why do I pick them out?
These little people.
It's all in the name of love.
It's all in the name of I don't want to hear any complaining about what's on your plate tonight so just go right on ahead and eat it!!
(And I DO know they are lima beans. We were just told they were horsey beans at grandpa's house.)

He has grown into a handsome young man! And who could blame him? Have you seen his dad?
Wednesday...My kids watch Avatar the Last Air Bender. When I put Ruthie in the tub, she has all her water bending students come to learn from her. I caught her here as she scolded her students to stop being lazy and get up and bend!

Why did the chicken cross the road?
I don't know. Why?
Because his nest and eggs and children and wife and house and and and. Well, you know that his children are little baby chicks that came from the eggs? (Yep) He had to get to them....
And here is a nice in between. But for some reason he just won't give me a straight face. Oh! Wait. That is his straight face! Silly.
Isaac-I love you and think you are amazing. I can't wait to celebrate 10 years of being your mom!
