The way my daughters voice sounds when she tries to whisper things to me, the smile I get from my boys when I say they can light the fire in the fireplace for me.
My dogs greeting me when I walk in the front door.

I'm suppose to be packing right now (no Lena, really packing) but instead I'm blogging.
What else is new?
Today I got my oil changed, got my tires rotated and balanced, returned lots of items from one of my 12 visits to Hobby Lobby in 10 days. Have I told you all that I'm addicted to Hobby Lobby?
Oh yes, I washed about 10 batches of clothes, including sheets. Cleaned my house, some what. Paid bills, mailed bills, went to the bank, the cleaners, Target for snacks. Went to Jakob's award program. Sat in car pool line for 45 minutes and then got 2 kids in to 2 different places on different sides of the city, neither which were late (I'm patting myself on the back for that one) and there arrival times were within 20 minutes of each other.
Yes, maybe I was speeding just a tad :)
Picked up my grandmother (who will be staying at our house to watch our dogs) brought her to the store, came home cooked spaghetti and meatballs, cleaned the kitchen, Brian just left to bring Alex to swim practice and he asked me before he left, have you started to pack yet?
me- What did you ask me?
him- Did you start to pack yet?
my response was, what you just read.
He is already has 1 strike, I can promise you, he will have struck out by midnight tonight.
PLACE YOUR BETS!!
Jakob and Peyton (my girlfriend Lena's daughter) were chosen for November Shining Star award for their homeroom classes.
Shining Star is a child who has shown great character in their class room and has had excellent grades also. It's also like the Student on the month award.
Jakob is a great student, in every way. He is a sweet boy who tries to show that you can be outgoing and athletic. But still have good manners and respect for himself and others. He always puts other people's feelings first and tries to help other kids when they need it.
Brian and I are so proud of him, he really is my sweet boy!
Keep on Rockin' Jakey!!

tie breaker! We are always in this room, it's open to our kitchen and we spend almost all of our time in these 2 rooms. I'm so excited to see this room come alive. When we bought this house, I feel in love with this room. I knew there was so much potential with it's size, the windows, everything. And slowly it is getting it there. Were getting it there. Me and my hubby (with the help of some handy dandy neighbors!). Brian and I really do work well together, sometimes :)
