By the way, I still firmly believe in little girls in smocked dresses and easter bonnets on Easter Sunday. I also wished more people wore hats to Sunday Services.

And just check out sweet Skoopi, she is totally watching the show, with the same intense concentration. There is a little bit of trepidation on her face, will the Justice League truly conquer evil again?
We wore our special green shirt so we wouldn't get "tickled". Mr. Boys fabulous teacher said, no pinching, just tickles! And the lepruchans came and made mischeif in our kitchen, leaving only teeny lepruchan size bowls. Normally, they turn our milk green, however, someone who shall remain nameless, but his name rhymes with Mr. Ban, didn't put away the food coloring properly, so we found the green all dried out this morning. Foiled again by "The Man". Then we all had special lunches today, with Shamrock sandwiches, green chips, and green candy.
Also, we had Corned Beef Sandwiches all weekend. Mr. Boy loved them asked to have them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

And then you download the pictures off your camera and realize your camera was stolen by a 4 year old. And then get this priceless photo of my dad catching Mr. Boy with the camera while he was babysitting.
One thing I noticed is... getting five kids to smile at the same time..... it doesn't happen.
So, instead, go with no faces showing... These guys... again... they crack me up. I LOVE how sweet he is with her. "Do you want to go look at the turtles next?" "Let me help you open that door" "Would you like to wear my batman pajamas?"
Here he is proposing...
ok, not really, so maybe I adlibbed that last part, but aren't they cute together!
They have a costume room, with a stage, light booth, pianos, and a mic. We took turns re enacting a scene from MacBeth, which we read from every night before bed. Ok, not really, but we did sing some Green Day at the top of our lungs on the stage.
This is AK, practicing using the The Red Phone at the pretend Mayor's office. She was practicing for the day, when she becomes President. Mr. Boy is off pretending to be Fireman Johnny Gage. They have a carousel that plays even more annoying music than the one at South Coast Plaza, but the kids loved it. AK rode around perfecting her Miss America wave to the crowd. *elbow, elbow, wrist, wrist,*
We ate lunch at the park behind the museum, and a woman was there with her two darling PUPPIES! She let the kids play with them, and it was hard to leave those sweet doggies behind. There are few things in the world that are better than puppies in my book.

Two things you are wearing right now: My grandmothers ring, and my running shoes.
Two of your favorite things to do: Shopping and hanging out with my friends.
Two favorite pets you have or have had: Oooo that's a tough one. I have loved them all. From Cinders the Wondercat who I had since birth to 19 years old, or the Fat Labs that are in my life right now.
Two things you ate today: A real strawberry shake, my personal favorite, & Jelly Beans.
Two people you last talked to: Mr. Man & some random man at the gym, who claimed he knew me from some TV show...
Two things you’re doing tomorrow: Swimming at the Gym & a Birthday party, and Oh! a date with Mr. Man.
Two longest car rides: Blech! My family never did the long car rides. So, it's probably Utah & Phoenix. I hate to fly, but I'd rather fly than drive. I go crazy in a car after two hours, you can ask Mr. Man. He has to pull over and let me out to run for a bit.

Then, a few days later, I had some cookie dough in the fridge, because there is nothing better than warm cookies out of the oven (with ice cream of course). Mr. Boy woke up early, and walked into the kitchen to retrieve a snack. He opened the fridge to find: carrots, apple slices, cookie dough, or cheese. Any guesses which one he chose? I'm sure he thought he had died and gone to heaven, no mom in sight, and tons of sugary dough. We awoke to find a boy lying on the couch with a very swollen stomach, and 2/3rds of the cookie dough gone. On the way to preschool, his little tummy was bulging through the carseat straps, he moaned "my tummy hurts". I told him that's what happens when you eat a lot of cookie dough. He sighed and responded "I know... but it was SO SO good." At preschool, he proudly lifted up his shirt and showed his class his full tummy, patted it, and proudly said, "it's full of cookie dough!"
It's rained a bunch over the past few weeks. We love it! The whole family is outfitted with multiple rainboots, perfect for puddle jumping. Mr. Boy, just like Mr. Man likes to wear his PJ's all day long on Saturday.
Are you taxes sitting on my desk waiting to be compiled? Lots to see in this pic, if you look close.
The book is New Moon that is on desk, and is currently interfering with my long to do list. Underneath that is well the financial history of 2007 for several people. I'm sure they are going to see the book, and think.. "Hey... stop reading, get back to work!"
The necklace has been recently found after being missing for months. I love it. I went to a Jewelry Party with good food and friends. The Jeweler talked to each of the guests and got to know them a bit during the party and later would suggest a piece based on what she learned about you. I tried this on, very skeptical, but it is just so ME! The first time I wore it, I had someone at the bank comment on it. It's my "signature piece".... do you have a signature style piece? I firmly believe in that.
The top, you can see perscriptions... no fun. Such is my life... This freaky body just makes me crazy sometimes. And in the cubby next to it... some gift cards that need to be spent on something indulgent!
Happy Tax Season to you and yours!
