Reading Suggestions??

I love to read! And I cruise through books like crazy. But I'm really not good at picking out something to read. I love anything...almost. I think. I read the Children of the Promise and Hearts of the Children series' by Dean Hughes when I was in high school. I've read all the Harry Potter books. I love Nicholas Sparks...most of the time. I've read a bunch of his books. (The Wedding is still my favorite!!) And, of course, I'm OBSESSED with the Twilight series. I can't wait to read the fourth one! I'm so irritated that I have to wait until next summer! And then there are the classics. Anything by Jane Austen is good. Loved Sue Monk Kidd's The Secret Life of Bees. But I can't think of what to read right now. I'm sure there are millions of amazing books out there that I would love but I can't pick one, so I'd really love to have some suggestions!

Had a Bad Day...

I was just checking my blog and that song was the one, randomly, to come up on the playlist and when I heard it I just started to laugh!! That was my theme song yesterday!! Looking back, I'm sure it will be a hilarious story but so far I have yet to laugh.

So, because we've been staying over at my parents' the last couple of weeks to babysit, my kids are a little off schedule. They aren't sleeping very well. Well, I guess they're sleeping, they just aren't going to bed until super late. I know I could have been much more disciplined about getting them to bed on time while I was there, but I just wasn't. So now I'm suffering the consequences.

Anyway, so my kids aren't going to bed until late, but we're still getting up at the crack of dawn, so I've been wiped out all week. I made the mistake of lying down with Jack to feed him and I dozed off. I totally didn't even realize how tired I was until I woke up to Payson tapping my arm. So I jumped up and looked around, realizing that she'd been alone for over an hour.

We have child locks on most everything in our place, but our genius little monster has figured them out and they do no good! So while I was sleeping she got into the pantry, reached my spices, and emptied the cayenne pepper, cinnamon, mustard powder, sesame seeds and the desitin (she also emptied the diaper bag) all over the apartment! Wow, she had fun!
Needless to say, the desitin was the most difficult to clean up. No fun at all!! Luckily, everything ultimately came out and we're all having a better day today.

Initially I was embarrassed by the mess and cleaned it up before taking a picture. Now I'm wishing I had captured the memory on camera, but there's no way I'm recreating that disaster!!

Anyway, we're all having a much better day today!

Something New!!

So a bunch of my friends have been doing this whole blogging thing for a while now. I figured it was time for me to get one going for my cute little family!! When it comes to computers, I am so NOT the brightest crayon in the box, but this seems fairly simple...however, I may be eating my words here soon.
I have about a million pictures on my camera that I need to put on the computer and then I'll have some super fun photos of my babies for everyone to see!! And I'm sure I'll be on this thing bragging about them all the time. They are the most beautiful, fun, rewarding thing in my life!! Of course, they are also the most challenging thing as well, but doesn't that just make the reward that much greater?
Anyway, I'm keeping this short. Nap time is almost over and I have lots more to figure out with this blog thing, so hope you enjoy learning about the little things that happen in our lives!!
