This might be my most random Scoop post yet. Hold on tight.
Little punks pre-gift opening for Carter's birthday.
Carter opened this one from my Aunt Mary immediately. Huge fan of this series. He's already finished the book.
Kids came home yesterday from Preschool with kitty faces. Fitting.
Our fountains are finally working. This is one of two. Never a fountain fan before, but now that we live in California they seem to blend right in and I love the sound they make. If I could keep Lainey from baptising her kitties, I'd love them even more.
Jack has figured out that when Dad's out of town, Carter sometimes sleeps in my bed. So, now I have these two monkeys in there with me. I secretly love it.
Why am I almost 36 years old (on Sunday!) and just now buying these scented pine cones? They're delightful!
Our Thank You turkey is filling up. Love to see what they come up with.
It's backwards day at school today.
These kitties are starting to become a real hassle.
She has to bring them everywhere. Lamby, too. This is what she looks like upon leaving to go anywhere.
Guess who holds them upon her getting in the car?
Guess who stuffs them all into her purse while we shop?
Guess who becomes a nervous wreck at the thought of losing one?
We returned from our Target trip to find Sassy kitty tucked into my door handle. Please take a moment to understand the mission I will have to launch into should one of these lovies not become accounted for.
Figure out which one is missing.
Find it and purchase.
Spend at least a week dragging it behind my car.
Wash it 38 times.
Flatten it with my car.
Give to Lainey and pray to our Sweet Baby Jesus she can't tell the difference.
Found this at Home Depot. They were all out of stock. Already.
Flew home to find it online and purchased it. Jack is a happy boy.
I'm forever unsatisfied with my atrium window. Latest version. Help!
Look how much love I have while on the computer? Fatty Batman slugs up right next to me. Annoyingly, he often pushes keys. So, if you receive a cryptic email from me, I cannot be held responsible.
"Zebo" lights are up. I love our backyard. It's like our own version of Disneyland.
And, speaking of.......the children are getting an early Christmas present this year. Disneyland passes! We'll be seeing a lot of this next week:
We saw Disneyland during Halloween in 2006 and it was spectacular. I can only imagine what they have in store for Christmas.
Could Main Street look any more adorable than it does already? It will! There is not a doubt in my mind that I am just as excited as the kids will be.
Blake? Maybe not. If you remember, we all discuss our favorite rides while we hop on the shuttle to get to the park. Blake's signature party pooper response: "The shuttle back to the car." Nice.
Oh, and our passes include admission to California Adventure, the Disney park adjacent to old school Disneyland. We'll check that out, too.
In other news:
****My 3 kids have spilled 5 bowls of cereal in 2 days. What the hell?
****Today is "share day" at Preschool and I'm going to volunteer. The letter of the week is G. The kids bring in something that starts with G. I'm sure you can imagine how it goes while they try to sound it out.
Lainey - "Guh guh, kitties!"
Jack - "Guh guh trains!"
****Lainey never shuts up. And, she never stops moving. Caroline reminded me that my dad remarked years ago that I was the same way. Damn.
****Wonder if the Preschool teachers will frown upon me bringing in a flask today? You know what? I bet they'll ask me to share.
****Caroline arrives in sunny San Diego in exactly 28 hours and 17 minutes. Not that anyone's counting.
