Where Do You Think He Learned This?

Tag I'm It

A couple days ago Steph tagged me. 7 things you don't know about me? Lets see.....

1. I have been growing out my hair for over a year now. It was really short for awhile, and I was ready for a change. It's almost there, except for the top layer and it's totally driving me nuts. Every time I move it falls in my eyes.

2. I've never enjoyed bath time with my kids. Every baby I've had I have that "aww, lets take a nice relaxing bath before bed" moment, and then they scream like someone is pulling their toe nails out one by one, and my "moment" is over.

3. I only like mushrooms on pizza. Love it actually. Any other way and they are all rubbery feeling in my mouth. Blech.

4. I never eat breakfast when I first wake up. It takes about 3-4 hours before I get hungry, so I rarely eat anything until lunch.

5. When I was a kid my mom never bought sugar cereal. When I spent the night at a friends house and they had sugar cereal I was always super excited. Yet when I ate it I found that I really didn't like it.

6. I got my first camera when I was 11 I think. It was a Le Click? It was flat, and took this disk like film. We went to Washington DC that summer on vacation and I just KNEW I was going to grow up to be a photographer.

7. I love to read and have every book I've ever read from the library alphabetized by author in a binder. Is that weird?

Just So You Know, I Am Still Alive

Don't let this picture fool you. Carter hates the snow. He just happens to have this cheesy little smile he does everytime he sees a camera. This was taken after our first snow fall of the year. I was so excited to take him out and see what he thought. Not impressed. He wouldn't move, and his brother put some snow on his jacket and he freaked out. To this day when he looks outside and sees the snow he makes an ugly face (which is really kinda cute) and points and whines at it.
Two days after Christmas one of my children had the nerve to say to me "I'm bored". And I'm not embarrassed to tell you that I sounded like my mother when I said, "You have hundreds of dollars worth of Christmas presents and you can't find anything to do? I'll give you something to do". Well, they did find something for that afternoon, and then the snow fell. About a foot to be exact. Oh wonderful snow. Entertained two rowdy boys and their neighborhood friends for several days. And let me tell you the joy I felt watching those boys play. (from the warmth of my kitchen that is) The best was the football. Two on two, and apparently tackling was highly encouraged. Even if it meant a face full of snow. Silly boys. As a little girl if someone had shoved my face in the snow I would have gone in the house crying. But when they came in hours later, soaking wet through all their snow gear asking for hot chocolate, I knew they had a little bit of me in them after all.
