This is my life now...

I'm not sure I'll ever be "Mrs. Supermom" the team mom/room mom/PTA President/dinner on the table at 6/homemade cookies everyday all rolled into one woman. It's not me... it wasn't my mom, nor my grandmother, or her mother. I love who I am, I've embraced it, and I think I'm a fun mom for the most part. My kids are gonna be okay.. and I have my moments as supermom. If we took all these pics and rolled them into one day... I think that would qualify. However, it's a whole weeks worth of festivities.
The kids in festive sweaters picked out by Mr. Boy, a nod to my Swedish heritage. The kids wore their sweaters to a Holiday Gospel Choir Concert... and AK had a super stuck comb dangling from her head. Watching Frosty the Snowman for the 100000th time. They have surprisingly similar mannerisms, which cracks me up... such as the finger dangling on their mouth. We are trying to hit Disneyland weekly for the holidays, and met up with some of our favorite pals for the afternoon. And check out this sweet Eiffel Tower from the newly re-opened "It's a small world" Shhh... I may try and steal it. (If I got caught... it wouldn't be my first time visiting the Disneyland Jail!) I went with Mr. Boy to The Glory of Christmas with his class. This is his buddy from school.
We've been busy baking cookies too. And visiting with neighbors, I love this pic Mr. Boy snapped of me donning an apron and standing in the doorway chatting with our neighbor. (Hate the vanilla colored walls...) If you told me 10 years ago that I would be staying up late one night making 14 angel costumes for the school pagaent, I would have laughed heartily and bet you $50 million that it would never happen... I would have lost that bet last night...
And this sweet dog was all alone yesterday while her pal Sandy spent a day getting checked out by the vet. She quickly slipped into a deep gloomy funk that no amount of "fetch" could relieve. Sandy came home and Skoopi immediately went back to her sweet lovable self.

Oooh - I'm so impressed that you actually wear an APRON - that surely qualifies as super homemaker mom of the year :)

The picture of the kids "baking cookies" qualifies you as Supermom to me! Look how much fun they're having! That's what they'll remember... :)

Your dog looks so much like Riley, it's scary!
