Pet Fashion Show

Miranda and Taylor demonstrated a really creative use of some fabric scraps and my hot glue gun.....by making clothes for Smokey and Squeaky. The pets were thrilled, as you can see.


I guess the "M" is for Miranda.

Sonya's 1st day of preschool

Sonya started preschool yesterday....she'd been waiting pretty patiently since August when the other kids started, and her big day finally came! When we got to the bus she said, "Mom, you can go now." And she was happy when I picked her up, too, so I guess the day was a success!

This is a picture taken at MOPS last week of my little "Moppet" and me.

FuN dAy!!!

We wanted to take the kids swimming at the YMCA today, just for something fun to do this Labor Day weekend, but I called and they aren't open on Saturdays until after Labor Day. Well, Aaron came up with a great 'Plan B'--going to the Children's Museum in NP. It turned out to be a really fun day, and I was actually surprised at how much the older 2 enjoyed it. They had been there for pre-school field trips, but that's been a while!

It's eating me, Mom!

As I said, I was sort of surprised (pleasantly) at how much fun P and M had....I figured they'd think it was dumb.....but I think they had the most fun, partially because they have all of these memories of going with Mrs. MacGregor on her field trips! They ran from room to room, talking about things that were still there from before. This wheelchair was one of the things they remembered fondly.


Paul spent quite a while setting up these wooden dominos
