I've been lacking in blog ideas lately. I have the desire to blog, just not much to blog here is a random blog for you.

We are getting bids for fireplaces and drywall for out basement today. Woohoo! We started insulating on Saturday, its coming right along!

Beth is still doing well on the potty except the whole pooping thing. She will be successful and then hold it until she has an explosion...what is this?? (Sorry if i'm grossing you out.)

James has turned into a royal force of destruction. As I was typing this sentence he poured a bowl of crackers out on the table and commenced smashing them all to smithereens. And here is photographic evidence that he is the messiest eater know to man. These noodles were spread all the way across the kitchen, not just on the table by him. He threw a clump every time I turned around. Ugh. Good thing he's so cute. (He just got the crackers again AFTER I cleaned them up and continues to smash...)

Beth insisted on wearing a crown to church yesterday because a princess just isn't a princess without her crown. At least she picked her small one...

I'm getting VERY tired of Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and Snow White. Any one have some OTHER princess movies we can watch???

Its almost noon and my house is still in reasonable shape (aside from the smashed crackers). Of course that could be because all we've done is watch the movies I mentioned above. I know, mother of the year...It's just one of those days.

I detest laundry. That could be why James wore clothes that didn't fit to church yesterday. Sheesh. I really am mother of the year!

Okay, just to prove I can be a good mom is a picture of my kids painting with water colors. See, a constructive non-tv activity!

I could really use some junk food right about now. Like the kind pictures below from the latest family party. Mmmm. Krispy Kreme. Mmmm. Brownies. I feel 5 pounds heavier just thinking about it, but I would do it anyway.

I got my hair cut and colored on Saturday. I really like it. I don't have any pictures yet, and I didn't really do it today, but I'll take some one of these days. The cut isn't drastic, just lots of layers. The color is fun though. "Mocha" and a some carmelish color. Next time I think I'll do lots of the Mocha, I like it a LOT!

Okay, I think that's it for the random thoughts today. As you can tell its a lazy day around here, but that's okay. We all need that once in a while, right??

I am so glad you guys are being lazy today too! We are just sitting around and the house is a huge disaster. I did eat a piece of whole wheat toast for breakfast to be good, but then I ate some oreos and cheetos to top it off. Maybe we better schedule our exercising days for the week...!!!

What about "Little Mermaid" "Beauty and the Beast" "Aladdin" "Mulan" etc. Those all have princesses.

Kids are SO MESSY. After cleaning up Isaac's throw up off the carpet this morning, i decided I couldn't take it anymore and scrubbed every surface of our house. and 20 minutes later, it's a mess again. ugh.

Oh yeah, I forgot, we watch a lot of little mermaid and aladdin too. I can't get her to watch Mulan for some reason...and my friend is going to lend us Beauty and the Beast.
