    This is my new little internet computer. You’d think that since I’ve been the owner of this thing for well over a week that I would be a blogging fool – it is small and very handy to cart around the house but I am not quite used to it yet – watch out bloggers when I do figure this out I could be a posting fool.
    my e book - I think that's what its called - the surrounding items are to give you an idea of how little this computer is.

    Other stuff going on around these parts…

    It's hard to get a R.S. lesson prepared with this little one making cute faces at me - even harder though when she is screaming at me so I won't complain.

    Cali is a real roller now. She can do it without thinking. I wanted to do a post about her horrible pooping problems because I literally have been changing her outfit 3-5 times a day... is this a genetic defect or do I need diapering lessons???

    Here are some cute pics of all 3 kids. They are into books. LaNell walked in the door today and Packer went straight to the books – he associates her with reading to him – thanks Lan.

    I LOVE to mow the lawn. You could say that I am obsessed with it right now. I think about doing it every day. I hope that all 3 of my children will nap at the same time so that I can go and mow. I just love to see the newly mowed lawn and then we actually play on it… I now need to fall in love with weeding but that hasn’t happened yet.

    Some Fun Bits of Our Mothers Day

    No Comments

    We ran out of milk today so… we busted out the “Powdered Milk”. This was our first time ever doing this so we called it “magic milk” and Packer was fine with that but Benji did not like it. His Father insisted that he drink it all. Halfway through he tells us, “This tastes like white cat fur.” sorry Benji, I kind of agree 🙂

    Ben and the boys made dinner tonight. We headed out back for a back yard campout!! Hot dogs over the fire and I loved it.

    I also loved that Benji told me out of the blue, “I love you Mom.” That is fun to hear without any coaxing. He also called me out when I thanked him for the puzzle that he got me and he said, “and you need to say thanks for the flowers and the card.” !! So I did. Ben and I both got to talk to our Mothers this afternoon and let them know how much we love and appreciate them. Other people might post the same thing but we really have the best Moms ever! 🙂  So that was my perfect mothers day – I did my puzzle all afternoon while the rest of the family took naps.

    Since we are on a funny things Benji said today kick – he also blessed in his prayer, “thankful that we are still on this Earth.” We’re not too sure where that one came from.

    I need to post my not so wonderful cakes since I boasted about my Mickey Mouse cake. Ben requested Mike Tysons Punch Out cake – the occasion called for cupcakes so this was the best that I could do.

    We ate cupcakes at the soccer game. I scored 2 goals! One of them Sam Hancock was very unselfish and gave to me because girl points count double in this league, thanks Sam. And the other was because Ben gave me a pep talk on the way over about how long it had been since I had scored in this league so I made one for him,  but they were both low hard corner shots and It feels good to be getting back in shape again.

     And for the first time ever Ben and I went to a movie again last night so both Friday and Saturday Nights at the theater – that was fun – Star Trek is  also a good movie.

    Oh Yeah – Ben took this picture of me because I really wanted Smores but we only had mini mallows so…  You make do with what you have.  And they were also yummy.

    Happy Birthday to Ben

    Happy 34th!

    Happy 34th!

    Today is Ben’s Birthday! He is getting pretty old these days but… He hides it well! When we got married they asked us what quality we liked best about each other – I said that I liked that Ben was always optimistic and Happy. I still love this quality about him. He is always in a good mood. I can tell how much he loves me and our little family by the way he treats us and plays with us and devotes everything he has/does to us. He is such a good husband and father and I don’t know what I would do without him ( so don’t get too old too fast 🙂 )

    Time for Solids

    Cali has been eyeing up our food lately so we busted out the rice cereal and applesauce. She loves it. Well, I should say that she loves the little bit that she can actually get down. She smacks her lips and chews on the spoon. My boys weren’t interested in solids this early so it’s fun.

    We got to go to Ben’s cousins Baby blessing this afternoon. This is Andy and Stephs first baby and she was adorable. We had a great afternoon visiting with family and eating good food. Now it’s time to relax and get ready for another week.

    I changed 6 stinky diapers in one morning! that is crazy. Can’t be too healthy for any of us. Maybe we need to change our diet?.. 2 kids in diapers should not equal more than a diaper an hour. No wonder I feel like I got nothing done.
