Just like his Daddy, Noah seems to have an affinity for tools and anything mechanical. Isn't this picture precious? It's Barry's favorite, and I can see why. Noah got this little tool bench for Christmas, and he loves it. I just happened to have my trusty camera ready when he was hammering away... and Voila! A great picture was taken! Never mind the fact that he wasn't wearing any clothes - we are in that stage where he won't hold still to get dressed or undressed...and I was feeling pretty fortunate to just get him diapered him that day!
Noah's other love is anything with WHEELS. Kendall's baby stroller, any of his cars or trucks, Kendall's ER crash cart...he immediately goes for the wheels. Index finger pointed, he starts touching them, then trying to spin them. If they won't spin, he flips the item over and starts spinning them. He will do this for half an hour....NO LIE. Who knew that wheels were so much fun? In this house, we are WELL aware that tools are fun (and necessary...right, Barry?), but I missed the boat on the wheels!
Here she is... our little princess! I took this picture a few weeks ago while Kendall was playing dress-up and when I saw it, could not believe how grown up and beautiful my baby girl has turned out to be! It's just one of those things...she's with me every single day, but I don't notice the changes in her until I see her in a picture. She is my joy, my frustration, my comedienne, my little helper, a real source of unconditional love....She is everything I have ever done right in my life, and I couldn't be more proud of her.
Some things you might not know about Miss Kendall:
1.) She still sleeps 12 hours a night....and sometimes a 2 hour nap during the day!
2.) She is closely connected with God. She is willing to let you know what God would say about anything you are doing, at any time.
3.) She can read...really well!
4.) She never makes fun of anyone.
5.) She's NOT a girly-girl (yeah, grandma!), although she likes bugs and lip gloss just the same!
6.) She cannot WAIT to start Kindergarten!
7.) She can count to well over 100.
8.) Her favorite words (that always elicit a giggle), are butt, toilet, toot, underpants, poop, and tushy. These words are used at any opportunity. They are followed by repeating the word over and over again while laughing and rolling around on the floor. Any mother's proudest moment....
Well, that's it on Miss Kendall, although that doesn't even scratch the surface. Look for more on Kendall and her adventures in the future!
So last Saturday on my way to work, I heard this joke on the radio. Now, I am not usually into jokes all that much, and I can rarely even think of one to tell, but this one tickled my funny bone! Here it is....they call it The Punchline You Can See Coming A Mile Away!
So 3 men and their significant others are on a cruise ship. One couple is gay, the others are straight. The ship goes down and all passengers perish. As the 3 couples are standing in front of the pearly gates, the first heterosexual man walks up to St. Peter and says, "Well, what about it St. Peter? Do I get in?"
And St. Peter says, "Seriously?! You are filled with greed! You love money so much that you married a woman named Penny! I don't think so!" The man shrugs his shoulders and walks away. The next heterosexual man walks up and says, "Well, what about me?"
And St. Peter says, " Yeah, right. Have you ever heard the word gluttony? You love food so much that you married a woman named Candy! Take a walk!" The poor fool lowers his head and walks away.
After witnessing all that had occurred, the one gay man looks at his partner and says, "Well, it doesn't look good, Dick...."
I'm a thirty-something mother of two, wife to one (haha), trying to live a simpler life in the log home my hubby built just for us. I've been called a tree-hugging granola cruncher by some of my friends, but I'm really not. I'm just trying to appreciate all the simple joys life has to offer...my rugged and handy hubby, my silly kids, good friends, great food, lots of fun, and of course, ICE CREAM & CHOCOLATE ! I love to laugh, so my day is not complete until I've made time to watch something funny before bed...mainly The Office! Come and spend the day with me... we'll have a great time, I promise!
