Dear Washer & Dryer Part II

Thank you for listening to me in my previous post. When I took the towels out yesterday, there was the magical missing Sunday sock of Lily’s.

Now she can wear her shoes to church.


The woman who uses you relentlessly.


My CRAZY Weeknight

So, while Jeri was having a CRAZY weekend with my mother, I had the boys on Thursday evening. We put Kjelly and Lily in the bath together. Oh, how they love each other.




This is what he does when you ask him to smile.


Kjelly with his hair all crazy with soap in it.



Dear Washer & Dryer

How I love thee. But when you eat socks for an afternoon snack, it makes it so I don’t like you very much. Please, decide to spit them out.


The woman who probably uses you too much.

Fall Concert!

Blogged about in February! I know, you envy me. You just love that I’m so up to date with everything. No please, no more standing ovations! I know you love me. ;)

So we had the fall concert in ah… mid December. 2 months later… I don’t think that’s too bad, no?

So this was Kathryn’s first concert. She plays the trumpet. Karl and Lauren were pros at this. In fact, Karl has the whole look out of the corner of your eye and pretend you don’t know that your  Auntie is taking pictures like crazy look. See example:


And yes, that is Lauren’s head right behind Karl. In fact, we didn’t get too many shots of her because of this. I’ll just recap some of my favorite pictures for you.


Here is a picture of Kathryn bossing around the boys. Surprised? I didn’t think so.


She didn’t know I was taking pictures of her. We were across the gymnasium.


I love this picture.


Now Kathryn knows we were taking her picture. She was so excited for her first concert.


Lauren loves getting her picture taken. So different than the boy mentioned above. See below:



And, here is sober sides. I have another post for her. Turkey won’t smile when she’s getting her picture taken. She’s all, “Seriously? Will you STOP already?”


Here is Lauren with her Jazz band.


One more picture of the bossy sweet daughter of mine.

We have a concert next month! I’ll be posting about it two months the day after!

Question of the day: What is your most favorite thing to do in the whole wide world?
