I have found so much comfort in this constant and beautiful reminder. I have always been moved when meditating upon this sorrowful mystery when praying the rosary. But, it's different when you have the constant reminder throughout the day.
Rooster is having a ball throwing them so they stick to the ceiling.

You just want five minutes away from your children to go to the bathroom. The kids are now happily watching Curious George so you decide to make a break for it. Your children are an endless pit of need......so you need to get while the gettin is good:D

I suppose the parade was so long because every group under the sun showed up. Its an election year so the Governor and his opponent showed up. Now some people might be impressed that the Governor showed up. But he wasn't the highlight. This guy was the highlight.

I don't remember this movie. But, I know I have seen a Pippy movie before. Rooster says she wants more Pippy movies. So I have to do some research and whatnot.

We spelled his name with glitter.....so my kitchen glistens....to bad it's not because its clean:D
I told Liz that it's a good thing our boys will go to different schools.....they could get into a lot of trouble together:)
Nothing puts a smile on my face like smashing a smiley sun to death.

Rick knows I love a good documentary now and then. We currently have HBO so he taped Lucky for me. It's a documentary exploring life of lottery winners.
My mom always says that "The lottery is a tax on people who are bad at math." Then she reminds me that I had to take Statistics three times in college;D I have many flaws but excessive gambling isn't one of them. But, I still take this advice to heart.
You are far more likely to get struck by lightening than to win the lottery. However, I think either would probably kill me. Lightening would kill me for obvious reasons. But, if I won the lottery I'd probably die of a heart attack from the sheer shock of it. So every time I play Power ball I am risking my life! Don't worry though....I think the odds indicate that I will be ok:D
Anyway, I really like this documentary:) One of the comments that struck me the most was that character flaws are magnified when you win a huge jackpot. I of course loved the couple from Nebraska that won. It seemed to me that their loving character was made more obvious. I think that they are truly good souls:) I smiled everytime there was a clip of them.
Poor GH. These are heavier than they look.
GH was a source of encouragement for a little while. He would clap for people. Then he had a fit of terrible twos:(

I kept thinking about it....and thinking about it....its a cute idea.....my kids are too young to take the Sacrament......its not presenting this snack in any type of ceremony.....why do I keep coming back to this site? Why do I keep thinking about this cute snack.........Its just a snack, not Communion......ok Ill make them...Oh I have to tell Lacy....ok they turned out cute..ooohh they taste great too.....but I don't want to take them to our Catholic neighbors they would think I have lost my mind......they are tasty...Oh dear Jesus forgive me for being a complete flake
The only problem I have is that I can't get onto their site to get a new code. So I'm just going to use BlogBlings now. At least I can get on their site:)
You might be asking yourself, "Is this little drama worth a blog post?" I would only respond by saying, "Yes, why do you think it's on the blog?"

The kids loved the fountain!
Big Dog wanted a closer look....that's why he had to stay with Captain Awesome:D Big Dog was thinking about going over the fence. We caught him testing the perimeter:D He's actually getting quite good at looking in one direction while he's doing something else. The other evening at dinner is a good example. He was turned smiling at his dad while at the same time stealing chips off his sisters plate while she was talking to me:O Anyway, there is the trickster with Captain Awesome.
My mother got Rooster a bunch of Dick and Jane reproduction Level One Readers. She was very impressed with Roosters progress in reading. Rooster is a quiet reader....so I'm not sure my mom heard everything...but, she played along:) Rooster was happy to show grandma what she has learned. My mother said that Rooster is way ahead of what I could do at that age.
We saw a bunch of duck eggs. GH tried to get to them. So when I blocked him a few times he threw himself on the ground and said "I sad".....this is his new way of manipulating me.
