More Random Thoughts...

  • I saw this picture of #4 and I thought, WOW! HE'S SO CUTE! And then I realized, this is NOT #4. It's my baby brother.

  • Last night, as we were trying to get the kiddies settled down for scriptures and bed, utter chaos ensued. Let's just say that by the time we got everyone "settled" and in the same room, the Spirit was no longer there...contention was abound in every word and action. It was quite sad, really and I remember thinking "What's the point of doing this if we can't feel good about it?" That's when 2 families from our ward showed up on our doorstep with goodies in hand and a bright "welcome to the ward!" We invited them in (all 12 of them?) and more chaos ensued, but this time it was peaceful chaos. Can there be peaceful chaos? Thank you to those families who left a great feeling and the Spirit behind when they left...we needed it!

  • Aunt Carrie is coming today! Wahoo!! She is going to be my personal shopper for a few days. And man, do I need it! I am following the advice she gave here about not waiting until the weight is lost before looking good... Fabulous advice!

  • My parents and baby brother (see him in that picture? Isn't he adorable? It was taken about 21 years ago...) are coming next week to visit. How lucky are we? We've been in this house not even a month and already we'll have 2 weeks worth of visitors...Hooray for visitors! Who give me a reason to clean! And unpack! And take a shower! And buy food! :)

What a cute picture and too funny you couldn't differentiate initially!

I LOVE houseguests. Well, the good kind who help out around the house and don't suck the very marrow from your existence. Come to think of it, maybe I don't have the good kind very often. :-)

Have fun!

lol! That's funny...

I love houseguests, too! I love it when people come over, whether it's planned ("playdates", family, friends, reunions, etc.) or the pop-in kind. Even when my house is a total mess, I'll still love the pop-in kind of houseguests. Is that weird? Chalk that up to me being a massive social person.. :)
