Happenings

Things are pretty normal around these parts. Not much is happening. Things will get very busy through the month of December so I am trying to enjoy the lull. There are a ton of things going on at the school next month. Teacher conferences+ Bake Sale+ Holiday Shop+ Theater Week= Oh my god, could they pack more in before Christmas! Let's not talk about the fact that I don't even have my shopping for Thanksgiving done yet or any inkling of what I'm doing for everyone for Christmas!!! Ack!

Breath...

Well, I thought I'd share a few pictures. I tried to get all three kids together on Saturday when we cleaned up the yard but they were in too big of a hurry to get back in the house where it was warm. Hannah vanished before I got get a good picture of her. Sissies I tell ya, it wasn't even cold.

He loaded up his bucket with leaves and dumped it by the curb.

Simon gathered the sticks I cut.

Look he does manual labor! Tee, hee.

Seth was all worn out after the yard work. I like that the cat needed a nap too.

Seth had story time and craft at the library today. He made an Octopus puppet. Obviously, we weren't doing something Thanksgiving themed. Once I paid my overdue fees we were able to check out some new books and a movie.


Oh, I got the corner points in on my wall quilt! I know, no one cares but me. I think it'll look sweet when it's all quilted and bound. Of course, it's been so long since I stared it, it really doesn't go with anything in our house. Hmm.

Seth looks so big! And just like his daddy napping there :)

Yay for the corner pieces. It definitely looks more finished with them. Now I am wondering if mine needs them too....

He is getting big. My baby isn't much of a baby anymore. Sniff.

Dan doesn't nap... everyday.

I can't believe you posted those pictures ~ while adorable and cute in every way, aren't you worried about breaking child labor laws?? :)

Isn't that why we have kids? Built in slave labor until 18! Heck, ya! Hey, maybe I should have some more and then I can farm 'em out real cheap to other people. I'd have to give a big disclaimer about how much the whine when asked to do anything though.

The problem with using children as slave labor is once they are old enough to actually do the chores well, they no longer want to help out!

Totally adorable photos ...
