Speaking of which, you may have noticed that I've changed the title of my blog. I felt the road less traveled, while the name of a favorite poem, and quite fitting if you ask me, sounded a little too altruistic, and those who truly know me probably wonder...."What the ....." (fill in the blanks with your own version of that saying) so I thought and thought and this was the winner. It was a tough choice...I was originally leaning towards "Who Pooped on the Floor" but I was afraid of attracting weird fetish people, and while that is a common phrase at my house, I don't want any poo fetish people reading my blog...or looking at my children for that matter! Alas I digress....
Another thing you should never do at my house....sit on the toilet without looking first...my boys (not including my dh) are not very diligent about aim, or lifting the seat. My girls, being two, and wanting to imitate their brothers are not real neat or accurate either. Aren't you glad that I am NOT as picture happy as some of my dear blogging friends? :)
Speaking of dear friends, I do believe that someday this photo could be shown at a wedding reception slide show!
Here my dear son Noah is learning what happens if he doesn't come home from work cheerfully, compliment his wife, bring flowers, rub her back, remark on the tidiness of the house and children, and rave about his home cooked meal. I'm trying to do my part to make sure he does ALL of the above listed things. His future wife (if her mother and I have anything to do with it!) is responsible for covering him in snow. Thankfully she also un-buried him. He was getting a little nervous for a moment. He was so thrilled (not) when I told Abi to wait until I could take a picture!
Good grief, I can't believe there are only 16 more days until Christmas! My tree is NOT up, my house is NOT decorated, and I have not wrapped a single thing. In fact, I don't really remember what I got for who, and will likely end up wrapping everything on Christmas Eve (making for a rather groggy and grumpy mommy Christmas morning!)
Last weekend we spent a WONDERFUL and snowy weekend up at the Milne household. I love the grown up company, and I managed to escape with JUST the boys! They all played with Missy's kids and I believe I had more uninterrupted grown up conversations in a weekend than I have had in the last two years put together. It was sooooo worth the drive!!! Missy also fashioned several outfits for my kiddos. Here is Clara sporting her latest Spring Bean creation!
We had Matthew's birthday party this weekend. He had friends, capes, and fun. I will blog about that more tomorrow. I also plan on blogging about Ruby's "baby". Hope that keeps you all in suspense! If I ever want to reach 50 posts, I need to get blogging! Praying for a snow day (well ice actually!)
God is good. All the time.
