To be happy about...

No new pictures right now but just wanted to drop in and say:
I love:

  • How Kendall says "as well" instead of "too." For example before school she was playing kitchen and asked me and then Kate, "Did you eat all of your jello as well?"
  • That the days are getting just a smidge longer, I can tell by the light coming through the blinds when we wake up and go to bed at night.
  • That our house is going to smell like a brand new house soon: newly refinished hardwood floors, new paint, new carpet...
  • Thinking about my garden, going to do a little reorganizing with an expanded vegetable garden in a different bed and lots of flowers.
  • I think that the fans might leave today. 
  • The carpet for the basement is scheduled to arrive today so we'll decide on a day to install and then we can spread out a little.
  • My Weires girls are coming to visit soon, excited about the things we have planned but a little bummed they have to see the house as it is.
  • I've started a countdown until my sonogram!
  • I'm way too excited about getting all the toys sorted out and put back once the basement is finished.
  • Speaking of "organizing" Kendall uses the word organize way more then ANY other 4 year old out there. Yesterday she said, "Mom, maybe tomorrow we can organize my socks!" Gosh, I love that kid. I really don't know who she got that from. Yes, I organize a lot now but I don't think I did growing up (Mom, did I?) Brian is more of the organizer, I don't even put away his clothes because I can't do it neat enough for him :)
  • Kate on the other hand can destroy a room in five seconds flat and a supreme mess does not bother her in the least.


  1. Yay! Glad the house is moving along. There are very few things that are better than the smell of fresh paint.

    No, not at four but you didn't have a mother and father who are perfectionist at organizing.
