I'm too nice.

Today's entry is simply a link to my husband's blog entry. Oh, and a quick picture of the kids and I. Fresh outta bed, and cuddling on the loveseat! After that is a picture of all three boys playing with one of their favorite toys.

Dan's oh-so-funny blog entry

When Friends Move

The pictures Justin & Michelle posted just made me miss them. I hate it when people move away. Here's a picture tribute.. we'll miss you guys!

And yes, he took the picture while he was driving. He's kinda stoopid that way. We hope it's humid and miserable in Florida.

Now We Are Six

I had to quote a Pooh book by a.a. milne for my sweet not-so-little boy, who turned six years old today! Here are some pictures of him in sequence...

Age 2

Age 4

Age almost-6

Happy Birthday, Darien! I can't believe you start first grade in less than two weeks. What will I do without you for 7 hours every day? Will you miss your mom? Will you make friends? Will you figure out how to buy milk to have with your lunch? You still seem too young to be away from me for 1/3 of your day.

We bought a few items of furniture from our down-the-street neighbors who are, sadly for us, moving to Florida in a couple of months. On the bright side, they wanted to get rid of some of their stuff, so we took advantage. Most of it was basement furniture, but I did get a lovely corner unit out of the deal. I decided to find some decor for it today, and this is what I came home with:

I picked up the stuff on the top two shelves at Hobby Lobby. Yeah, I know I said I was never going to shop there again after The Shopping Cart Incident. But anyway, there are three vases, and the dark-looking thing on the right is a tiny wine-colored lampshade with little beads hanging off it. I fell in love with it, but they didn't have any stands there! So I have to buy one somewhere else. I hope I find one, or I'll have to return the adorable little thing. The middle shelf is just three candles, I think I need something else there, too. The bottom shelf contains two of my favorite cookbooks, and two bottles of wine. I had to choose those two because every other bottle we have, although much prettier to look at, is too tall for that shelf.

And I decided to do something useful with my yarn stash instead of having it take up space in my closet. See below:

Cute huh?
