“I wan truck shees!”

Setting up the boys room this week, and I was talking to Marcus about the possibility of having a big boy bed and sleeping in that room. Out of nowhere, he said, “I wan truck shees!”
All day he claimed that he would sleep in his own bed and hung out most of the afternoon in his bed.

That is, until bedtime. He was mad that we’d even suggest sleeping anywhere but in mommy and daddy’s bed.

So, we brought him down to the boy’s room. We’ve got bets on how long he’ll last. I’ve got dibs on 3 hrs.

Good night, Marcus. See you at 11pm!

Yum {and awesome}

20130114-211432.jpgMade some from scratch cookies in Molly’s easy bake oven.

20130114-211537.jpgThey came out awesome.

20130114-211553.jpgRecieved some homemade trail mix from a friend. Equally as awesome.

20130114-211603.jpgThe kids prepared a special dinner for Thom and I. Ultimately the most awesome.

{and shh. Thom made some awesome pasta vodka as well. }

If I had one word to sum up today, it would have to be yum. {and coincidentally? Awesome.}


The sillies were extra silly this week, singing and dancing was certainly the theme.
Which, as it would, totally makes me us all laugh.

We went to the park on Wednesday. The rocks always remind us of Stonehenge, which I thought worked perfectly for the theme of “all lined up” 🙂

Seriously fun.

Here I thought “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” was a comedy. They were all so focused on watching, I think they forgot to smile.

Room with a view.

Today was a good day.

Thomas decided that he was ready to move up to the next level in his dance classes, which meant he’s now in the larger front dance studio. I stayed for his first time around and worked on some website updates for a client… 20130110-224347.jpg {Okay, fine. I may have also stayed to maybe sneak peeks every once and a while on how he was doing.}

Everytime I looked in, he was smiling from ear to ear. I call that winning.

Is that like Ben 10?

Marcus was feeling better today. He had a full night’s rest and was up and at ’em bright and early. He came downstairs in his “summaman” pj’s to find me taping the hallway. Immediately, he ran and got a dry brush, climbed up onto the ladder and exclaimed, “Mommy! I pain 10!”
