Sadie Made the News!!!

Sadie was in a local news clip! At first you can see her getting ready to slide but they cut away. Then about half way through you'll see her trit trot through the center of the screen. Nothing major but wait until she sees it! Even cooler than when she was in the paper when she was two. Go here to view the clip.

One of my many duties...

This is a daily accumulation of shoes that needed to be taken back upstairs. I found it quite amusing.

It went like this...

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥I wake up this morning to a naked little boy beside me since he wet his bed and my 21 month old two inches from my face saying, "I see you mommy!". That was the best! After breakfast I decide to run the steam cleaner on the high traffic areas. The kids are in Sadie's room reading. I stop the steamer to check on them and S and W BOTH come running down the stairs telling me Audrey made a mess. On the way up I see a trail of bacon bits from the fridge up to the girls room. I open the door to see tiny bacon bits scattered on Audrey's trundle bed. So I pull the mattress out and drag the vacuum up and clean that. While sweeping the kitchen floor to rid it of bacon bits, Audrey comes up to me with brown smudges on her face. She found my hot chocolate cup (on top of the kitchen counter, I'm thinking maybe one of the others gave it to her) and drank it and poured it out. So I steam clean that. While using the bathroom, the kids are 3 feet away and manage to spread toothpaste all over my sink. Now if my children were at all compliant or reserved life wouldn't be this much fun now would it? No wonder its a job in itself to keep this place clean. Matt is out of town for ten days so they will have zero distrations in the evening for me to even attempt to clean. And at bed, they cry and cry about needing daddy's hugs and kisses. What am I to do? While it can be tiring and frustrating and even more than I bargained for on some days, it is still the life I choose and love.♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Well, lets see. Pre-school started. The weather cooled down and we made it to Huff-n-Puff 2008. The kids are doing fabulous at"school" but Audrey cries when we drop them off. Sad but cute! The first day we came home and she walked around asking, "Where's Sadie at"? She also has this new thing with dragging the pillows from the guest bed around the house and falling asleep on them. Sadie's newest thing is really wanted a pet. I'm not anti-pet, but I have enough on my plate as it is. I am thinking something very low maintenence. A turtle maybe. I'll take suggestions on this one. And Wyatt. He is still a Daddy's boy. He went out to scout hunting land with Matt the other day. He took his camo rain coat and frog rain boots. Wish I could have seen that!
