This is Toby

he is my BIL's family's dog. and he has nothing whatsoever to do with this post. 

I just think he's cute.  

there's been just nothing to post about lately - we've all been busy getting this homeschool thing together (lessons were online today. they start the curriculum from the beginning of the year so we blasted through 11 Math lessons this morning and I expect we'll do about the same for the next week or so), and preparing for my sister's arrival in a couple of weeks. 

by the wayside are being put: Fletch's 5th birthday and the arrival of our 3rd baby.  I just don't have time to worry about that stuff right now! but the Fletch will have a party at school so hopefully that will satisfy him.  and I'm counting on things calming down in a few weeks so I can spend the few weeks beyond that actually thinking about having another kid. 


I found a new blog to enjoy. Some ridiculous super mom in texas. she posted a Cheesecake Pie recipe the other day because apparently last friday was National Pie Day.  So of course I made one, last night. And now it's 1:40 in the afternoon and the entire. pie. is. gone.  The boy's ate about a quarter of it, in my defense.  Now I have to make an entire new one before Craig gets home so he won't know that I already ate it all!!! 

Another blog I like comes from another Kelly (different spelling though) in Utah and her latest post was inspiring in a different way.  (as in, a non-food-consuming way) She wants to make 31 newborn kits for her own 31st birthday celebration this year. Which I think is awesome and I'm totally going to join in.  The Humanitarian Aid guidelines are linked from her blog and she's willing to do a lot of the work herself if people just want to donate materials. 

I suggest you check it out. (the link is in red above)

Happy Week!

Oh dear! You and your sweet tooth! You know that you will feel guilt forever if you don't at least bake Fletch a cake lol. Tell him Happy Birthday from your family down here in Alabama~ We miss you all so much!!!

Love you,

I love that "having a third baby" is something you can put on the wayside! lol
And I totally misread the newborn kit thing. I thought the girl was making newborn kits for her first 31 unborn grandchildren--ya know, to prepare for the future in case she dies before that? (my g-ma made baby gifts before she died for her unborn grand kids)and I thought that was kind of strange of her.
Ya, I've got some blond streaks. ;)

Is it just my vision or is the dog kind of... you know, a little... um... enjoys eclaires, maybe?
