Girl vs. Boy

Tiny tells us he has a girl hand and a boy hand. The right hand is the girl hand, the left is the boy hand. I have no idea what is could possibly mean. It is good for a laugh though.

Such Fun

They buried pops, can you find him?

We went to a wonderful birthday party for our 4 year old friend Lillie and we came home with these wonderful treasures.

Poor Kit Kat had a rough go at it for her balloon. She walked out of our friends house and down the drive and her balloon caught on the mailbox. Giant hole, verrrry sad girl, and a 20 minute drive home. Sounds fun, huh?

Well, on the way we stopped at the dollar store and found the exact one and so we got it and Kit was so excited.

We arrived home, had a restful sleep that night, and got up in the morning. Kit's balloon was sad, half way to the ground, and again we had a very sad Kit.

Kind of a sick joke, but she got over it and eventually all the balloons died and peace was restored to Kit's world.

Yum Yum

Our new friend needed a snack. I am pretty sure he is Sinclaire's friend, because if he were mine he would have not chosen the cucumber.

Love having helpers...

We are trying out our cookie recipe for my cookie exchange this year. We did chocolate chip orange last year, and I think we are going to do that again. Just with a different recipe, this one has a zesty sugar on top. Yummy!

The Half

Well I finally did it. I ran a half marathon. My only goal was to not stop ajd I didn't. I ran with my friend Jamie and we finished in 2 hours 32 minutes. I am thinking of doing the mini in May. I might be addicted.

We Love Ice Cream

We love ice cream. You can't really tell , but Tiny always eats the bottom off the cone before he finishes and it always turns into a big mess. I remember when we had drumsticks when I was little I just couldn't wait for the chocolate at the bottom of the cone. I loved that part. And sometimes my mom would give me hers. It was fantastic.

Loves School

This was Kit's first school project. She was so excited to show all these pictures to everyone. Then when I asked her if she told her class what they were all about she said no. Oh well, I am glad she was excited. She loves school and has a lot of fun there. She has this one friend that she always says to me, " What is her name, you know the one I play with." Oh, yeah it is Lila. You would think that by two month into this she would remember, but she doesn't. Or maybe she just wants to see if I remember who her friends are.

Summer fun

I just found these pictures and had to put them up. We loved playing in the mud this summer. with the giant dirt pile it was hard to stay away from. Thanks to our friends for playing with us, again and again.

Field Trip Number 2


We also got to go on a field trip to a nature center. It was fun they got to pet the turtle, listen to much too long story, and look and a dig site. I love field trips.

Love the Fall

We went to the apple orchard and had a hay ride. We all got to pick 4 apples each. It was so fun. I love to watch the little people have so much fun and smile. And the apples were so good too. Fresh from the tree and oh so yummy. I think Tiny and Kit had eaten two each by the time we got home. Sinclaire was very sad to have to go to school and miss it, but I guess that is what happens when we grow up.

Any Takers??

Sinclaire and Kit are wrapping presents for people and Sinclaire just came up to me and said, "We are going to give grandpa a dirty tissue." Too funny.

Green and Pink

Sam's sister had a baby in July and I made her this little blanket. I love green and pink and it turned out so cute. I just love it. Since I finished this I have made quite a few other things so I will have to get some pictures on here soon.

Tiny has this little Tinkerbell toy that he loves and instead of calling her a butterfly he calls her a buffafly. It is so fun to listen to him learn to talk. And way better than screaming.

Fun Times

I never thought I would like running, but the trick is running with a friend. I love it. It is social hour and I am doing something I would never do by myself. Thanks Jamie for the fun times.

Still Running

This week I logged 27 miles. That is the most I have ever run in a week. I hit a huge mile stone and went 10.5 miles today. And I got new shoes. Gray and pink, my girls love them.

Happy Birthday Sinclaire

Sinclaire turned 6. She had a wonderful birthday and it was so fun. We were a bit busy, but we managed. I started the day with a 10 mile run and then rushed home to set out the garage sale. We finally got started and it was pretty steady. Sinclaire and Kit had a little brownie and lemonade stand. After awhile I was worried that they were going to make more than I was. They loved it and Sinclaire would ask everyone that came if they wanted to buy something. It was so cute. Well, by then end the three big toys finally sold, I made 87 bucks and the girls made 35. Yep, 35 bucks, I couldn't believe it. We split it even steven and they were happy.
Then grandma and grandpa came. We had colorful sorbet and chick and lamb cupcakes. Presents were a hit and a good time was had by all. We love birthdays at our house. It is always so fun.

Running, Running, Running

My pictures seem to not be loading right, so I am going to have to do boring no picture posts for awhile. It has been happening for about 2 weeks and I thought it would be better by now. I have picked up a temporary hobby-running. I really hadn't planned on it, but my friend asked me to run with her and I said sure. We are planning to run the monumental race in Indy in November. It is 13.1 miles and I am glad I am finally going to do it.

New Faucet

Due to the amount of grass seed we will need to plant in a few weeks we decided to install a faucet in the middle of the yard. Plus I don't want to carry buckets to the garden forever from the house. It is a long way. So we started on Saturday and finished on Monday and I am so glad it is done. It feels so good to finish a big project. And the girls think it is cool.

Free Stuff II

I forgot some really exciting news. A week ago we got a new range. For free. It is such a deal. You might be wondering how this is possible. Well, we are doing a test/survey type deal. So we will have this one for three months and then they will switch it for a different one and we will have that one for three months. Either way they both will be much better than the one I had so it really is a great blessing to be able to participate. I just have to check some boxes each time i use it and do a few interviews. Not bad for this new beauty.

Melty Beads

Have you ever felt like you have made a few too many of these things?

School Starts For My Baby

Yep, it is time. Sinclaire started kindergarten yesterday. She was so excited and a bit nervous. It is hard to believe that i have a little person riding the bus.
After school yesterday she said the bus was her favorite thing about the day. She also got to color two pictures, play on the playground, and i am sure numerous other things that she forgot.
Kit is now dying to go to school. Which is funny because until yesterday she was saying that she just wanted to stay home with me.

New Hobby For Tiny

Tiny just keeps carrying books around everywhere. And wanting to sleep with them. It is so bizarre. His favorite are The Berenstain Bears. Maybe this is a sign, and I can hope he always loves to read.

Jungle Jim's

A week ago today we went to Cincinnati to visit Jungle Jim's, a store that has everything you could want. And to see my friend Gillian.

Sinclaire at the entry of the store. It is like a little zoo. They loved it.

Pigs feet. It is the first thing they wanted to see.

Duck feet, why?

Duck heads, even a bigger why.

This was the potty. Red lined seat and everything. Not really, they had port-a-potty doors instead of real doors for the potty's. Very cleaver I thought.

The biggest pez I have ever seen.

A dancing Elvis animal. They loved it.

The trip comes to an end and they thought it was great. If I am ever in the neighborhood again I will go. They had this candy that I had when I was little called Zotz. It fizzes out both ends when you put it in your mouth. I love them. I gave one to Tiny and it was so fun to watch his face. You could tell he was very unsure about what was going on in his mouth. And it started foaming too. I just love him. I have great kids.

Then we went to spend the day with Gillian and Oran and Lucy. They all played together so well and it was so fun to talk to Gillian. I miss living by her and being able to craft with her. I had a wonderful day. It is always nice to catch up with old friends.

Dry Ice

Grandpa brought us a new toy to play with last week. The kids loved it and thought it was great. I love to watch them discover new things. I think Tiny wished it was a foaming drink.

More Pics

Here are some more pictures from when my sister came to visit last week.
What a great time.
