Mommy: Will! That's not nice!

Will: OKAY! Trick or treat? I don't care! I'll put your underwear back on!

Happy Halloween Everyone!!

Musings over Breakfast

Today at breakfast Will held up his bent arm and asked me, "Mama, what's this?"
I looked up from my breakfast preparations to reply, "Um...Your elbow."
He then said, "No, Mama! This!" as he grabbed himself under is arm.
I said, "Oh. That's your under arm."
To which he replied, " No, Mama! That's my Batman!"

It took me a few seconds to comprehend. But then I finally got it after I realized that we had watched Underdog last night!

You can't beat his favorite super hero!

Then, my sassy Mae Mae replied, "Mama! Why didn't you just call it an arm pit!"

Oh, the joys of a good, deep breakfast conversation!

The First Part of the Trip

It was in the 70's and overcast, but that didn't stop us!

Having a blast at the beach!

Building a sandcastle!

I love the sand!

Look at all the crazy surfers!

Here we are at Newport Beach.

On the way to Newport Beach!

The windmills at Palm Spings.

Newport Beach Pier!

We are having such a blast! I'll post more pics soon!

Disney Wayund!

We're going to Disney Land!
The kids are so excited. Well....we all are actually.
We leave tomorrow. We are going to work with Rusty, who has some stuff to do in Palm Springs, and then we're off to Anaheim!
Oh my goodness....Can we contain the excitement!
Will keeps saying, "Oh yea! We're going to Disney Wayund!"
He also keeps asking me if batman will be there.
Oh well....Mickey will have to do!

It's Been A Long Time!


My Daddy used to tell me, "No excuses!"
I guess he just didn't want to hear it, and I'm sure you don't either.
Here are a few anyway.

I've been busy with the kids' school.
I've been busy with the kids' swim team practice.
I've been busy with John's soccer and soccer practice.
Rusty is out of town most of the time.
My birthday came and went.
I've had to clean the house, do the laundry, mop the floor, fix lunches, unload the dishwasher....
The big kids and I got the swine flu.
I've been getting ready for a Women's Retreat (that I didn't get to go to...thanks Mr. Flu)

Let's see....what else...I probably could add a few more.
After all they are just excuses, and I'm sure, just like my Daddy, you just don't want to hear it!

Neither do I!

I promise I'll try to do better!
