Seriously good giggles!

So this is kind of a long clip, but I promise it's worth it. We were visiting bop bop and gum gum one Sunday afternoon and Ben discovered a box of pop-its in the game cupboard. We couldn't resist, we had to show him. He LOVED them! It takes him a little while to really get giggling, but just's the best sound in the world.

Dude, what's with that?

So waaaaayyy back in April my family came to visit. Well my family are foodies, which we love, because we get to eat stuff other then mac and cheese when they come to town; which also means leftovers. Yum! We're usually pretty good at eating everything before it goes bad, but every once in awhile things meet the trash can. Well this was going to be the case with this tomato, but then I noticed a small hard bump just under the skin. Me being me I grabed a fork to puncture the skin and see what it was. This is it....

I don't know about you, but I've never seen a tomato sprout before. Weird.

Simple Prayers....

There is perhaps nothing sweeter than the simple prayers of children. But you know sometimes you just really have to laugh. Especially when they, with all the sincerity the little guys can muster, thank Heavenly Father for "the buttons on the piano".

Two Mothers......

I re-wrote and re-wrote and re-wrote this post, but it always came across cheesy. All I wanted to do was show my two beautiful moms and say how great they are and how much I love them. So here they are..... (I know that Ben is a little distracting, but with Ben is the only times they'll actually let me take their picture)

Aren't they beautiful!
They are great and I love them tons!

I know that someday, altogether too soon, I will miss this. I will miss rows of cars carefully lined up all over the house. I will miss calls of "mommeee" at too early o'clock in the morning. I will miss that stubborn little face staring at me in cute defiance. And I will miss miniaturized crocs found in groups in the middle of the floor. Sometimes though I have to remind myself of this and enjoy it while it lasts.

New Boxes

For those of you who were wondering where Ben's box was in the previous post. Here it is...

...or maybe this is it... choose.

(Hurray for pictures back!)

So I haven't posted the last few days because our computer has reached the "possible imminent death" stage, and I've got some pictures and video I really wanted to post so I thought I'd just wait till we could get another computer up and running and transfer all the important files (aka cute Ben's pics) over to the new beast. Well I was told that I needed to post something and I should just draw pictures. That was an excellent idea, until I realized I had no way to scan in a picture either. So here on Tyson's school laptop I pulled up good old Microsoft paint and did my best. Voila! My masterpiece (Monica I expect a post on Alberti's Window analyzing the brilliance of this piece)!

It's entitled "Moving Boxes" and is supposed to channel my paranoia of death from falling boxes. It's also basically what our humble abode looks like at the moment; stick figure and all. So if you don't hear from me in awhile send a rescue squad. I'll be under a pile of boxes!
