We made it....

The universe was conspiring against me this weekend. I spent all of Saturday doing charity stuff and was going to spend Sunday uploading pictures and writing blog entry's. I just got the kids settled into their beds (Lauren in the "scary African mask room" and Jacob in the closet...) when the power went out! (That made the masks even SCARIER...). So, no blogging for me last night. No TV either. Boo. Anyway, it is back on this morning and we are good to go. I am going to do a recap of the trip, but I will leave you with this tidbit for now.


Yesterday at church Lauren was drawing on her little doddle pad. She was pointing to a picture she had drawn and said "I wish that Jacob would just leave me in........ (and she pointed to the picture)". I think that what she meant to draw was this:





But, what she had drawn was this:




We have been living here too long if the first thing that comes to my 6 year old's mind is the luxury car logo (which, granted, she sees all the time here......).....

Peace

It's when she writes about the sex, drugs, rock and roll, and VW bus that you gotta worry. I think she's on the right track with the mercedes. Atta girl!

The combination of words and symbols to write her note is very clever. Funny what seaps into a kids' conciousness.

Just found your site, and couldn't help but laugh a little at this one! And your profile? I'm addicted to SVU and hate emptying the dishwasher more than any other chore in this house!

Hope you're ok.
