I should be working

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

I need to work on a shirt for Tabitha’s birthday. I bought rhinestones and I’m embellishing a shirt with a number 10 and putting a little crown over the zero. She will love it! I’m keeping it a surprise so need to work on it now while she’s in bed and Chris is watching Lost […]

not tonight

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

No blogging tonight, we had a bit of family game time. Nothing really went on today or yesterday anyway. Tabitha needed some time to recover from the weekend and in fact the girls stayed home from dance last night. I imagine we’ll get some lessons in tomorrow- though Daisy did read two books to me […]

Disney Dreamin’

Monday, January 26th, 2009

The kids are on the couch watching “Surf’s Up” and enjoying ring pops. My computer is busy uploading over 700 photos so I pulled out the laptop for a bit.
It’s been a little over a year since we returned home from our second trip to Disney World. We were there 9 days, not that […]

Thus endeth the weekend

Sunday, January 25th, 2009

We finally got Tabitha and her friend to go to sleep around 12:45am. They did their nails as I predicted, but also painted their toenails and applied lip gloss and made a little sign that it was “Tabitha and G’s mini-makeover!!! BFFs only!” Too cute! They watched almost all of High School Musical 2 when […]

Party time

Saturday, January 24th, 2009

Today was Tabitha’s birthday party. We went with a Webk!nz theme this time around. We made it just like Webk!nz World with a list of Today’s Activities and the activities were Jellybean Challenge (guessing how many jellybeans in a jar), Wheel of Wow (though we played like pin the tail on the donkey as opposed […]

Wee Miss

Saturday, January 24th, 2009

Daisy, mad at me a for insisting she needed to have her hair brushed.

Now she realizes what I’m doing and she’s trying hard to maintain the mad look but you can see a hint of a smile.

Finally she let her inner ham come out and asked me to take a nice picture of her after […]

Not Lost

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

Well, Lost is back on again, so I’ll get some blogging time in.
We got the computer back last night and I spent a good portion of today re-installing many of my programs. What a pain in the arse this is turning out to be. I have a new email program and haven’t totally figured […]

new class

Monday, January 19th, 2009

As much as I miss my desktop, I have to say I do enjoy blogging on the laptop. Just so comfortable to have it on my lap and type away. In the evening it’s especially cozy as I’ve got one kid in bed, another kid playing a game by my side and the husband in […]

feelings

Sunday, January 18th, 2009

I’ve been so deliciously happy with life lately. Last year I went through a dark period that I feel was directly related to the girls’ schedules. Things changed and calmed down and we fell into a lovely pattern and all those dark clouds dissipitated. I think Christmas was just what it was supposed to be […]

party on

Sunday, January 18th, 2009

The party plans are in full swing. We accomplished a big chunk of what we needed to do for the party today. We bought the pinata and filled it, bought jelly beans, ring pops, and trading cards. Add all this to what I bought Friday afternoon and we hardly need anything else. I need to […]

The week is done (but not the troubles)

Friday, January 16th, 2009

The computer is very, very sick. As in the computer guy was surprised at how horrible this virus is. So we’re going to have to brainwash it and start fresh *sob* It’ll be like getting a new computer and I hate getting new computers. He asked for a list of what files we want saved […]

Computer go “boom”

Thursday, January 15th, 2009

Maybe not exactly like that, but it’s in pain, therefore, I’m in pain. Basically a virus has seized and attacked. It came in a spam that I simply deleted, I didn’t click, I didn’t download, but there you have it. It’s bad enough that we’re going to have to take it to a computer place […]

My Happy Place

Monday, January 12th, 2009

One place in this house that has always been a happy place for me was Tabitha’s room. Then Daisy moved into her room and it was crowded and lost it’s theme. This past year I worked at getting it back to the way I loved and once again I can walk in there and just […]

stealing a few moments

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

I’m feeling a bit tired right now so I’m taking a bit of time to myself by sitting on the couch with my shoes off, a diet coke by my side and the laptop.
A book I bought for Tabitha came in the mail today. It was a beloved favorite of mine when I was […]

‘Tis a good year so far

Saturday, January 3rd, 2009

New Year’s Eve was probably my favorite family NYE so far. I served lots of good food for us to graze- taquitos and guacamole, fried mushrooms, stuffed green olives, kalamata olives, asparagus roll-ups, three kinds of cheeses and two kinds of bread. We started off the evening watching Daisy with her new SmartCycle game and […]
