Boys and Bikes on a Sunny Saturday

What Happens at My House When I'm Not Home

and incriminating evidence is left on the camera. Poor Shnitzel. He has no idea what is going on.
How do they come up with these things?

Random Pics Found on my Camera

Emma has developed quite an aversion to going to bed. She will get very upset when placed in her crib. This is what I see looking at me when I close the door and it just tears at my heart. Somedays it is all I can do to leave her in here. (Can you tell I'm an older mother? 20 years ago, I wouldn't have even looked back!)
Some of my exciting deals!! I was able to get this big box of 180 diapers for $7 shipped. Woo-Hoo! I usually pay $7 for a pack of 36 diapers at Walmart. These diapers will last over a month!! Very exciting!
My free to me brand new MP3 player. It is a 4g Sansa fuze, courtesy of Swagbucks! Again, woo-hoo!!
Hefty garbage bags on sale. I paid $16 for 136 garbage bags. I paid 7.50 the week before at Kroger for 40 bags; to buy 136 bags at Kroger would cost about $25. Plus I got the Dawn dish soap and free shipping. Not as exciting as the diapers, but I'll take it.
My three daughters at the charter meeting of Lake Wildwood Baptist Church. I thought they all looked so pretty.
Emma and Ellie were praying. Not sure what Anna was doing.
Anna and Ben after he fell and smacked his head on the concrete floor.
My handsome skinny husband.
The charter of our "new" church.
Good night all.

A Change in Perspective

A few weeks ago, Paul decided to take the kids to the dollar theatre in the next town over. This left me with a decision: go see the movie with the family or stay home with Emma. You can guess what I chose. I enjoyed an evening at home with Emma, who slept about half the time. I was able to spend time alone with her, playing with her and then I put her to bed.

I got to thinking about this evening. If this had happened when I only had Paul jr., and I had to stay at home with him while Paul went to the movies, I would not have been happy. I probably would have spent the evening pouting about how I always have to stay home with the baby.

20 years and six children has changed my perspective. One baby? Piece of cake- not even a bother- more of a joy. Having to stay at home alone? Bliss, pure bliss. It was an evening I enjoyed, having to stay home with the baby. I guess my 24 year old self was too busy pouting to realize what she was missing. :)

Walk for Life

Our local crisis pregnancy center held their annual Walk for Life today. Here are some images from that event.

She slept through during the entire walk.
Still sleeping.
At the playground for a picnic after the walk.
"I'm King of the World" he was saying this over and over while he sat up here.
