What pray tell do these two things have in common?
They are two of my FAV things!
Since I do not have a Costco membership.  My friend Leah picked them up for me yesterday!  What a true friend!  Thanks again, Leah!

Isn't he charming? 
Love the shoes. Love the glasses.
And who couldn't love that smile?

The simple joys in life...

Isn't it great when turning on and off a light can make you laugh out loud? And also your almost 5 year old sister...
If only mom could stand at the light switch all day!

This is how I feel most days.  Well, with the exception of when my mother is here.  Anyone else feel this way?

Slinky gone bad...

Not really sure what happened here but... it was not pretty!
It looks like Benjamin was an assistant with the wreckage.
 We were able to recover the slinky and the hair.  All is well!

Who bit you?!?

The other night we were out very late grocery shopping with all the kids.  When all of the sudden Julia starts screaming hysterically!  
"What happened?" I asked her.  
She mumbles something that ended in BIT. (You other parents know the kind of talk where you only get one word of the whole sentence.)  
I said Benjamin BIT you?  (He was the one closest) 
She quickly replied, "NO, I BIT Julia!"
"You bit yourself?" 

Our little mother Aubrey jumped right in. "It's okay, Julia. I bit myself and it got better."
Julia, "It's not getting better"
Aubrey, "It will.  You might have to wait until tomorrow."

By this time I was laughing so hard. 

And maybe this is only the kind of story that is funny after a long day with the kids and then you decide to take them all grocery shopping because you have spent valuable time clipping coupons and it is the last day of the sale and THEN you have some kind of brake down and think they were so good let's go to "Old McDonalds".

Sorry there were no pictures.  She did not want to "recreate" the incident.  I don't blame her.
