The pizza box

Can a smell wake a person up? I don't really know. However the first thing I did upon waking was gag to the smell of a sick dog. I knew something was wrong yesterday when my poor girl was bloated, but I could not figure out what she got into. This girl ate a 1 pound Hershery's kiss when she was about a year old and lived to tell the tail. Hehe

The mystery was solved last night after our walk to the Dollar General for sodas for pizza, popcorn, movie night. So off to the store. 
We love walks. 
Anne is enjoying herself even if her face says otherwise, and Kade is gripping his jacket like that because of his kitten. Not a real one, but an old toy of mine I found in storage. Kitty, Kitty, Kitten still purrs when her head moves. I had named her Precious and she's got to be about 20 years old. I wanted to give her to Anne, but Kade took an immediate like to her and has been carrying her everywhere. 

Well, anyway, we got our sodas, got home, and pre-heated the oven. When I open the deep freeze there is no pizza. Just the pizza box next to our trash can from the one we ate a few nights ago. As I'm standing there wondering it hits me. How oblivious am I? How did I not hear one of my children pull the pizza out of the deep freeze? How did I not hear a dog tearing into a frozen pizza? How could I have picked up that box and set it next to the trash can thinking it was Monday's dinner? 

Here's to hoping all has passed. Hehe.

Three Kids and a Museum

I am tired. I'm talking bone-weary. It's from a day of walking, chasing, and calling after little ones reminding them to stay with the family. I didn't really know what to expect when I had the idea of taking the children to a museum. I am thankful I wasn't the only wrangler there.

Our Many Faces

Just a few phots to show the sweet side.

Day One

I have been absent on here long enough. I wanted so much to keep a record of our day to day for family when we moved out of state for a few years, but like many of my projects, it only got a little attention until I found another interest. Ever heard the joke, "I'm working on my PhD"?(Projects Half Done)I do have a lot of things I like to do, and my Pinterest boards just keep growing. So here is to a new beginning.
Day One.
Today was supposed to have an eye exam, but an hour before I was set to leave I got a call canceling my appointment. The flu caught my doctor and she canceled the rest of today's appointments. It was actually a relief not to go. I had way too much to do here. I ended up dropping it to the side anyway so I could enjoy the sunshine sent my way. January in Oklahoma and close to 80 degrees. I even got out one of my other projects and practiced a bit. My camera + my 2 kids not in school = photo-shoot. I haven't more than just the camera on my phone in months so I am a bit rusty. It's just for fun though.
Such additude. I don't know where she learned this one.

I love this one. She is always copy her big brothers.

After picking up my oldest at school we headed over to my sister's house for some quality time... on her tampoline.

looks like daddy here

Sean's eyes looked really great in this one.

Can we ever jump on a trampoline with out getting shocked?

So we spent tons of time outside today. Even when we got home we stayed outside until dark just running in circles playing tag. I hope it's those memories that my children remember. Those deep belly laughs from being chased round and round.
