A little sand

This morning’s event between Alexa and Nate? Nate pours the sand in his shoes on her head. Why? it should be no surprise he did not have an answer.

Clean up, clean up, everybody clean up

Well not everybody, me! Yep, Mommy is cleaning again. Laundry folded and put away, dishes out of the dishwasher, Nate’s closet, Nate’s room and finally Alexa’s room. In the middle, nursed Aly to sleep….

and Alexa’s room is filled with paper, paper and more paper. She has at least 10 trees in her room.
I just ditched some of it, will she notice is the question!

gotta run..Little Girl’s 15 minute nap is over!

Well not what I had hoped to accomplish..


I was really hoping that I would be adding a new blog post each day. As you can see I did not do that but next week is another week and I can try again! Our week has been a tad long as harvest is still in full swing which means our Daddy does not come home until about 7 in the evening which is just before the kiddos go to bed. In fact it is Sunday early afternoon and Paul is once again at the winery.

The kiddos and I took some pictures earlier today in hopes of finding one that will make the perfect Christmas card. That can always be a challenge. Here is a a teaser picture. I think I might have actually gotten a couple good ones!

You get what you get…

Today’s fight between Alexa and Nate went something like this..

Alexa: You get what you get and you don’t throw a fit.
Nate: actually, it goes You get what you get and you don’t get upset.
Alexa: No, it doesn’t
Nate: yeah, my way rhymes
Alexa: well it does not matter..
Nate: yes it does

continued in that manner for close to 10 minutes.

Pjs in public


Meet Aly! She was 5 months old on October 28. She is happy, smiley, adorable, tiny and yes, she is still in her pajamas at 12:15 in the afternoon! With my daughter, Alexa who is 6 1/2, I would never dream of her wearing her pjs out in public. Those are for the bedroom, sleeping not for going out in! But along comes Aly, baby #3 and things are a bit different, not a lot bu just a little. Aly wakes at 6:15am after getting up 3-4 times during the night to nurse. She hangs out in our bed with Alexa for about an hour before she falls back to sleep. Unfortunately for her, she needs to get up and take Alexa and Nate to school by 8! some times, she is lucky to get a diaper change before we go and like today some times she just stays in her pjs. Today after dropping both kids off, I brought her in the living room in her infant car seat and there she slept for 3 hours..completely unheard of and out of character for her. But that would be the reason, this blog was able to get started!

It has begun!

I have been wanting to start a blog for a while now and decided today was the day! I want to blog about my days, my family, my life, my kids’ lives. Instead of making scrapbooks for all the kids, I thought this would be a good way to recount their lives for them. I also love to keep busy and it pains me when a day goes by and I feel like I did nothing all day. I run an online business making handmade items but frankly with Aly who is just 5 months old, my sewing time is limited if not completely absent and I am becoming frustrated with giving Whiffy Bean Bags 100% of me. I figured devoting my time to a blog of our lives would be perfect, entertaining for me to write and entertaining for others including my family to read.
