Random Tuesday

Yes- I realize I never have a set "Random" day. What's your point? ;)

~Something interesting I've noticed: Even when I'm making an ugly face- like this one taken at the kid's award ceremony at school- my eyes always still look BIG and BLUE!

~ Tristan, Alec and Isabel are gone to the ex's home for 6 weeks. It seems a little easier than it's been the last 5 summers. I think it's because they are only 40 miles from me instead of 1300. And if I wanna take them to lunch, after groveling to the man on a power-trip I may be able to. I will have them June 20-22 and July 4-6. And he told Tristan that they could come to church with me every Sunday, but I'm not holding my breath on that one. To make sure I hear from them at least once a day I challenged Tristan to text me a Napoleon Dynamite quote every day. I was expecting something more like, "That's so dumb. Mom- you're such a dork. I'm not doing that!" Instead he said, "That's not fair! You have the quote book!" So... yesterday I received "Do the chickens have large talons?" Yessssssssssssssssssssssss.

~ Kelsea and Karlea (my step-daughters) will be here on July 16. I'm stoked. I miss those girl!! They will stay until Aug. 20 or 21. I can't remember.

~ Isabel got glasses. I think she looks cute. :) (Please ignore her spazzy hair. It's in a braid that is falling down.)

~ Liv looks so sweet and innocent. Look at her sitting on the couch with her blanket sucking her thumb.
Yeah, well, looks can be deceiving. This picture was on the memroy card right after the cute pics of her on the couch. That is an entire bag of Splenda. She couldn't dump out the cheap sugar??
~ Go read my perv story over on my 76-to-now blog. I don't know why I thought of it, but it's actually kinda scary. :( I do a lot of blog ads over there in hopes of cutting down on ads on this blog, so skip thru those to read my other stories. If it has the label "yay" then it's a blog ad...FYI.

Tori, I am soooo happy to see that other children do things like that!!
My older kids are in VBS this week and Nathan just doesn't know what to do, except get into things...yesterday he sqeezed out an entire bottle of coconut shampoo onto the bedroom floor!

At least ants aren't attracted to splenda! Emelia eats sugar out of the sugar bowl leaving a trail behind her for the little ants to follow! Funny how I haven't seen many ants since she left for camp Sunday.

Love the little glasses!

It's great you are closer to the kids now, it would be hard to be so far away!

Hope you have a great day.

My son will be gone 98% of this summer, the sad part is baby sista misses him so much. Gosh that is like 1 dollar an hour.?

Yay for texting!!! Izzy looks cute in her glasses. Does she like them? I think my girls add her to their webkinz.

omar said...

Is it bad that I've never seen Napoleon Dynamite?

I think it makes perfect sense for the random day to be randomly chosen!

Isabel looks adorable in the glasses. And live is cute no matter what she's doing!

swampbaby said...

Jayden was excited Isabel has glasses now too. She looks cute!

Stepherz said...

At least you have a fancy vacuum cleaner to clean that mess up with!

And she's cute, so she can get away with stuff like that! :-)

utmommy said...

...because Splenda is so much more fun to dump everywhere!

PJ said...

*sigh* six weeks is SOOO long! At least they are closer now.

I have a three year old like that!

Yvonne said...

First of all, maybe the tongue is sticking out, but HOW can you call that an 'ugly" face???? And your eyes are big, blue, and gorgeous!!!

Yes, Isabel looks cute with her glasses.

Love the splenda picture.

Mindi said...

hmmmmmmmm....is it bad that i'm sitting here thinking, "6 weeks. that would be kinda nice..."
could just be post traumatic vacay syndrome sneaking up on my and biting my big arrssse.
i know that dealing with exes sucks--one of my bff's has a monster ex. so, my sympathies.

but, 'do they have large talons?'
AWESOME! ps how do i get my eyes to go blue like that. jealous.
