Most of you probably didn't notice, but as my own personal stalker pointed out, this post is a day late.I have good excuses, really I do. I'm babysitting 7 little munchkins and 2 not so little people, so am allowed to be a little late, right? I had some photos on my iPhone that I was going to use, but I can't find my computer cord, so you're going to have to put up with me cheating a little bit this week. Hey, at least I got 7 photos up. And no, just because I'm a day late doesn't mean there is going to be an extra photo, it wouldn't have fit.
Day 1: Ellie
Again. Honestly, who can resist a face like this? She's a natural poser and every time I take out the camera, out come the smiles!
Day 2 : The Three Mischief Makers
Ok, I cheated just a little on this one. I took this the same day as I took the photo of Ellie, but it was so cute I had to include it. The thing I love the most about this photo is Isaac's belly hanging out of his shirt. Shhh. Don't tell Sarah, she might not let me babysit her babies again if she saw how ragged they can look!
Day 3 : Did I ever Tell you how Lucky You Are?
We went to the Library last Thursday and this was one of the books that Esther picked out, by her favourite : Dr. Suess. We have more than a few of them around at the moment. Pretty much sums up my life at the moment. But its much more than 'luck'. I'm truly blessed by so much right now, if I had the gift of rhyme, I might just write a book too!
Day 4 : Dead Flowers
Yep, this shows you just what sort of creative juices I had flowing that day. About nothing! Poor things, Junur gave them to me on Mom's birthday and I kept them alive for over a month, but alas, I'm don't have much of a green thumb.
Day 5 : Star Wars Lego Man
The kids have been playing lego like mad the last few days. Its so funny how they got in stages with what they will play with. They've been taking over areas of the house as their bases and every so often one or two of them will come flying through the main area making their spacecrafts whizz around. The sound effects are rather awesome. Wish I could have included an audio clip instead of a picture, it would have been much more cool.
Day 6 : Apples to Apples
I bet you've never played Apples to Apples with James, and since you haven't, you have no idea what you are missing. He's giggly and goofing most of the time, but something about late at night with his older siblings makes him doubly so. I'd like to blame it on the caffeine or sugar of which he had neither, but I think it might just be the silly gene that runs deep inside most of us. We're going to be playing Dutch Blitz tonight (thats the plan), so we're in for another round of James clowning around.
Day 7 : Messy
You didn't know I had it in me, did you? I make all sorts of pretences of being a tidy, orderly person but I'd just like to squash that notion. I'm not. This is what my desk usually looks like after a night/day of crafting. I have every intention of keeping things looking respectable, but thats an awfully tiresome job when all my energies are focused on what I'm making. The mess just sort of magically appears. But its ok, it gives me an excuse to reorganize everything again when I clean up ....
