At Least No One Has Done Drugs...(yet!)

I'm back!!!
I'm finally feeling a little caught up with things.

After about 40 loads of laundry, soccer games, waiting in line for over an hour to sign the boys up for swim lessons, and a weekend of cleaning and trying to get organized - I'm feeling a lot more "with it." It was a great weekend, had a fun night out with my BFF Kjersten (we are trying to get all the time in we can before she moves!) and a great family birthday party to celebrate my brother in law, Nate.
I even played hooky from church just to have some one on one playtime with Lauren. I rarely get that with her and it was nice just to be with her, snuggle and play!

There have been some setbacks though...

Greg decided to play tattoo parlor with the girl across the street. Um...two days later it's still on his arms after much scrubbing. Better play with markers than with scissors I guess, right? (RIGHT?) We had a little chat about how we treat out body and we don't ink it up.
And LuLu has decided to be a table dancer. I cannot get her down from here - every time I turn around she is blaring "Single Ladies" from my ihome and dancing on the table. Tips will be few and far between with a costume like that though. I won a giveaway!! I recently started reading this cute blog Ducks in a Row and I was shocked to have Laurel email me to tell me I won a cute pillow with my monogram! Lauren was almost a Laurel by the way. I think it looks really cute with my furniture too!!
Thank you so much Laurel!!

Carpets are getting cleaned today too. Whew!! Sometimes it's all too much and you wonder how everyone around you is pulling it off so effortlessly. Or at least faking it so it looks that way. Our calendar is packed already for May, we are making our family list of things we want to do this summer, does anyone else do this? I don't want the months to fly by and wonder where the time went!!

Busy for sure! I love the new pillow, so cute!

Hectic life! I would tip Lauren - she is just so cute...!

I'm laughing about Greg's 'ink' least it's not the real tattoo! Look at cute little Lauren dance'n away on the table; where did she learn that from Kristen?

I love to plan out my summer, because I feel like it slips away. Plan as we might; I still feel like I miss-out on a lot of things!

You and you're little cuties are cracking me up. I LOVE the photos.

Lists are a good thing...always.

I hope that you are able to do everything you hope to. Horray for Summer vacation and kids running through sprinklers.

love and hugs

I have a certain little guy who'd love to join Lauren at her dance party. I can't keep him off the table either!!
And I LOVE the ink will wear off! I heard to try nail polish remover (maybe to harsh on the face?)

Glad you got it and you like it. Yeah!

Is that as high as she's daring to climb? When Logan was about her age he started climbing on everything... we would sometimes wonder how he got where he did!
