bruised, not broken...

2012.060 - My ever so graceful daughter (she gets that from me) fell down the stairs and bruised her bone.  Ungraceful + crutches = lots of opportunities to hurt herself worse.  Pray for her...  :)

stray kitty

2012.059 - (picture credit: Matthew) This poor little kitty ended up in our back yard - abandoned and obviously hurt.  Animal control had to come out and get it.  It turns out he was hit by a car and was very hurt.  So little kitty, whoever you were - I am so glad you are no longer in pain.  :(

what you get for making fun of your mother...

2012.053 - I have been teasing my mother for over a week about wearing mismatched shoes to church - UNTIL I looked down at my own feet today and realized I did the exact same thing.

movie night and tacos - for the dog?

2012.051 - We had tacos in front of the tv for movie night.  All was going well until the kids accidentally let the dog into the room.  Well, I hope they had enought to eat - Finn sure did.

Matt in the first grade play...

2012.047 - After the strangest display of stage fright (crying that he was never going to "that" school again, etc.), Matt got up on stage and did an AMAZING job in the first grade's portrayal of "Anasi the Spider: How the Spider got his Bald Head".

dumpster diving...

2012.044 - In a attempt to clean the office over the weekend.  My bosses accidentally threw out all my marketing samples and research.  I actually considered going through all this trash to find my stuff...

amazing music...

so cool...

2012.042 - I love the way Matt thinks.  The kids were making models of animals, people, whatever and Matt makes his like a comic panel.  I just love it!

my cute choir boy...

2012.040 - Matt has joined the church choir.  He is just too cute up there trying to stand still, hold his music, read the music AND sing!  (A nearly impossible task for a 7 year old)

Mom! I can see the cat's brains!!!!

2012.039 - Matt let the cat in and announced... "Mom!  I can see the cat's brains!"  After I cleaned up the wound, he punctured his ear, but (luckily) no brain was seeping out.  LOL!!!

homework... yuck.

2012.037 - Homework... yuck.  That was Matt's take on his assignment tonight.  He is to write a sentence for every word.  This is how much he got done after complaining about his homework for so long - it became bedtime.  Oh well, there is always tomorrow.

why I love Sundays...

2012.036 - Amazingly great Sunday...  started with breakfast at the diner, solo.  45 minutes all to myself!  Just me and a magazine and a really good meal.  :-)

Then I went to church, taught Sunday school and announced the summer musical.  After which there was a quick stop for cupcakes (hence the dirty face shots) and off to Grandma Jane's where there was more playing with Model Magic. 

Fun, tiring, full day.  Good night!

Saturday, February 4, 2012

2012.035 - music lessons, house cleaning, grocery shopping, babysitting, etc.  just a typical Saturday (with some model magic creations mixed in).  The first picture is of a snowflake "ball" Molly made a few years ago.  I just love it!
