I'm back!

After many a day with my non-functioning, Trojan infested PC-I'm back!
I'm pretty upset though, that I wasn't able to make a post a day for NaBloPoMo. Boo.
Oh well, I shall pick up where I left off. Dust off and move forward...tomorrow.

Nolan's blob

Does anyone remember the pumpkin from 2008? If you don't you can see it here to refresh your memory.
Now...everyone knows that Nolan is one smart cookie, and he's been doing great with reading, and learning to write all on his own. He's excellent at sounding out words, and figuring out how to spell them. He's even quite the artist.
So, all that being said.
Everyday he brings home something from school, a project, a book, math, maybe something he's drawn. Today, it was this... Now, I can't begin to tell you what I thought his blob looked like.
But my real questions are:
1. What do you think it looks like?
2. What does Nolan think it looks like?
I can't wait to see your answers!!!!

Jared goes to school

Oh my sweet boy. He was so excited about school!
He let me take 100 pictures, Nolan on the other hand, was completely annoyed by my camera. He's so big so fast, my babies are all grown up.
I know it's a pretty small blog post, but after kickboxing tonight-I'm so tired! The fact that I remembered to post is an accomplishment!
I'll do better, I promise!

Not So Long Ago

Came across this photo today from the day Jared came home from the hospitol. It seems like forever ago. It's amazing how time flies!

good night

I've got a feelin'...

My husband is asleep on the couch with Jared, and Nolan and I are watching "A bugs life."
Chris, Karen, Ben, Ryan & Emily were here for dinner and dress up. Pizza, wine & beer. What a great end to a fantastic day. We didn't really get anything done today, but we had fun. Together. And that's what the kids will remember. Us...together.

...tonight's gonna be a good night.

Love my boys

I bet there are people that don't like hearing about my kids, but today was a great day...

1. Mark went to give me a hug and bent me backwards, I yelled "ouch." Jared's response "Daddy, stop killing mommy!" Obviously he wasn't trying to kill me(that was last night at spinning class) So Mark gave me a huge hug, and Jared says "that's better daddy, love her like that." And hugging ended, when you're 3 year old sounds pornographic, it's over.
2. We played 8 rounds of UNO tonight. Everyone had a chance to win, it was so much fun. We've been waiting for so long to play cards with our boys. Nolan gets really mad when he loses, I wonder where he gets that from?
3. As I'm sitting here blogging, my boys are dancing in the living room to salt-n-peppa "Ah, ooh, push it" LOL They have no idea!

Love them all!

I took my first spinning class tonight with Mark. It's part of our attempt to do something together. And with all of his training for the Ironman, it seems only natural that spinning is it.
I survived. And up until about 20 minutes ago I felt great. Now I feel like my legs are going to fall off, my abs are shaking, and my back is killing me.
Can't wait until next week!

Things that go bump in the night

There was a "bump" in the night last night.
I heard Nolan go downstairs to go to the bathroom. And I heard him come back upstairs and head back to bed. I never opened my eyes to look at the clock.
I should have.
When I awoke this morning there were 4 neatly stacked piles of clothes in the middle of the living room floor. An empty cereal bowl on the kitchen floor. A mostly empty cup or orange juice, with a straw on the small Little Tykes in the living room, and cereal crumbs.
What strange creature could have gotten themselves up, folded laundry, eaten a bowl of cereal, and indulged in a cool glass of OJ?
I love my crazy kids :)

It's national blog posting month! This is my chance to get caught up on ALL of my backed up blogging that needs to be done. So much has happened in the last two months. We went to the Ironman, and Mark signed up for next year's race! We went to the 1000 islands & Maine. My sister got married, my best friend got married, and Jessie had her baby. Nolan started Kindergarten, and Jared started preschool.
Now you can see why I haven't posted anything? It's not for a lack of things to post, it's a lack of time to actually get it done.
So NaBloPoMo, bring it! I'm ready!
