Asher: “Mum, I have a question.”

Chancery: “Did you see him raise his hand to ask a question? That was funny!”

Asher: “Mum, do we really have to do these pictures week after week?”

“We do it so that Grandma & Grandpa can see you every week.”

Chancery: “Wouldn’t it be easier if they just came for more visits?”

Asher: “I suppose taking pictures isn’t such an ordeal, since we can pretty much do whatever we want while Mum snaps away.”

Chancery: “In that case, let’s read your book!”

Today’s Sunday Pics

Without further ado……….


A: “I have an evil plan to thwart Mum’s Sunday picture-taking.”


C: “I know what you are planning, & I think it would just be easier if we just co-operate w/ her.”


A: “You’re right, maybe I should rethink this.”


A: “Here’s my smile, Mum, & I’m off!”


C: “What, you let HIM go & I’m still here?”


C: “I’m simply too tired to do anymore pictures.”

Sorry about last Sunday’s lack of photos.  Here’s the ones I managed to get:

“Smile, kids!


Asher: “Buuurp!”


Chancery: “I can’t believe he did that!  How uncouth!”


A: “It wasn’t me, Mum!”


C: “One should cover one’s mouth, like so, if one is going to belch!”


C: “These stripes are mesmerising!”


“Just give a good smile, then you can go.”


A: “See you next week!”

It’s Real Life

I’m having a go at the “It’s Real Life” blog party. Here are pics from my real life (keep in mind that b/c we are packing to move, things are probably a bit messier/tidier than they would normally be in real life!) Without further ado, here’s my real life:

Usually the fridge would be covered w/ pictures & magnets, but since my fridge died recently, it’s been clean ever since.

The inside has less stuff than normal b/c we are moving & I’m TRYING to use up what we have.


Chad & my closet. We came from a house where we each had our own closet this size…. I think we are doing pretty well sharing it!

Kitchen Sink:No dishwasher, so those dishes are drying. I decided if I have to wash after every meal, I am NOT drying the dishes too.

Toilet:Here’s our throne.

Favourite Shoes:
I’m glad it’s getting warm enough again!

Favourite Room In The House:
I like to sit in the bit chair & read/watch TV after Asher’s in bed.

What Asher’s Doing Right Now:
He’s not in his jammies, but I didn’t want to wake him, so here’s an older pic. Imagine he’s 2 months older.

Laundry Pile:
Not much here b/c I just did it yesterday, but I am anal enough to have it sorted into darks & lights.

Self Portrait:
Here I am!

Being a Single Mum

For the past 2 days I have been a single mum. We got back from England on Wednesday afternoon, & on Thursday morning bright & early, Chad left to go on a men’s retreat for church. He’ll be back tomorrow night, & I’ll be quite glad to get him back.

Asher’s been really great I must say, but I do miss having Chad around. It’s nice to have someone ask if you’re coming to bed, if you’d like a bowl of ice cream, or how your day has been. I have been dealing with a bit of jet-lag still, more on Asher’s part than mine. He’s been waking up around 4:30am, but relatively easy to get back to sleep. He got up this morning at 7:30 which was really nice since I didn’t have to have the alarm set at all either.

We’ve just been hanging out at home the past 2 days. I kinda figured that since he hasn’t had much time to play w/ toys the last few weeks & we’ve been on the go pretty steady for the past month it was a nice break for us both, but I think we’re going to go out tomorrow. Part of the reason for my hibernation the past few days has also been the weather. The thermometer says it’s warmish, but as soon as I get outside, the wind freezes me to the core. Perhaps at our next house I’ll invest in a weather station so I’ll know both the temp & the wind chill.

Today I worked on getting our pictures from our trip uploaded to the internet, & I did something a little crafty. This may surprise those of you who know me b/c I am neither creative, nor patient for this type of thing, but I made a scrapbook online. I liked the fact that I will have a nice photo book complete with captions saying where the pictures are taken & what they are of, & yet I didn’t have to cut, trim, paste, glue, or tape any pictures & I really didn’t have to be all that crafty. I will have 56 pages of trip photos sent to my door for under $20. I think that’s a great deal.
