Vacation time!

Yay!  We all made it to the beach in once piece.  Unfortunately, my husband found out at the last minute he couldn't come since he has a second interview for a store manager position tomorrow.  He's still on vacation, he just can't go anywhere.  And even if he decided to fly in, it would only leave him about three days.  So, he's doing stuff around the house.  He wanted to work on stuff outside, but it has been raining nonstop since we left and it doesn't look like it will let up until the end … [Read more...]

Why is Yo-Yo Ma On the Floor with a Wombat?

Yes, that's Yo-Yo Ma laying on a bathroom floor . . . with a wombat.  I have no idea why he's doing that or what led up to the picture, but the speculation on reddit is very amusing.  I also just realized that I should probably be in bed asleep, being that it is almost 3 in the morning. … [Read more...]

Halloween Madness!!

Okay...today has been really crazy.  Jason got stuck at work, and didn't get home until almost 4 this morning.  I think the store manager is mad at the overnight people now since there wasn't any reason for them to make him stay there that late.  He ended up sleeping a pretty good chunk of the day.  By the time he was up and about, we barely had any time left to get ready for the party.  Luckly, we got everything cleaned up. At first, we were hardly getting any trick-or-treaters.  We had 15 … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday

Here's Hannah at the beginning of what I call her 'Pirate' stage.  We were playing around with her small blanket and I wrapped it around her head.  Almost immediately, she started saying 'Arrghh' and 'Pirate!'.  So now, she has a Jack Sparrow hat and a very cute Pirate Princess Halloween costume.  And she has commandeered my long whisk as her sword. … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday

This was taken earlier in the summer when it was still cool enough for Hannah to get into her pool.  She's definitely a 'daddy's girl'. … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – Bed Time

While I was making dinner the other night, Hannah was throwing a fit.  Jason took her into her room to try to get her settled down so she could eat.  After about 30 minutes, I went in to check on them and found them both asleep.  … [Read more...]

Since We’re on the Subject of Freaky Critters…

Look what my mom found out in the courtyard at their house the other day!  A nice lovely rat snake just over five feet long.  It was making it's way across the courtyard and toward the porch when she saw it.  Now, my mom is deathly afraid of snakes...so you can imagine her reaction.  I was on the phone with her at the time, and she just about when into a full blown panic attack.  She started yelling 'Oh my God...' over and over, and at first I had no idea what she was on about.  I though that … [Read more...]

Memory Mondays 5/23

Today, I'm taking part of the Momory Mondays Blog Hop.  This week it's hosted by Modern Mom Redifined and Karen's Healthy Lifestlye.  Basicly, you write a blog post about a special memory.  Well, here goes:This past Christmas was Hannah's first.  We had our first round of presents on Christmas Eve with my in-laws.  The second round was super early Christmas morning since Jason actully had to be in at work by 8 a.m.  Stupid Wal-Mart.  Our third and final round, which was when this picture was … [Read more...]

more cold stuff

I guess we dodged a bullet as far a weather today.  We did get a lot of sleet overnight, but I think we ended up with barely an inch of snow this time.  By early afternoon, it has already melted off and has since become a lovely coating of ice.Here's a few of the snow shoots from last month and a week ago:These are both up on my deviantArt account as well. … [Read more...]

belated Halloween pics

I'm going to try to get a few Halloween pics up either later today or tomorrow.  We started getting trick or treaters unusually early and in heavy numbers so I didn't get to take many pictures. … [Read more...]
