The Season for Making Things.

Fall is so my favorite season.
Fresh mornings
Cozy evenings
Warm drinks
Scented candles

It is also my "crafty" season.

Home decorating and arranging

The only problem with all of this is that it coincides with:

Soccer season
PTA season
Dance season
Good TV season
Alot of Stuff to do at Work season
Weight Loss season

I think it is now safe to say that
I like being busy.

Snorts, Chortles and Farts not included.

Bo, Emma and I have been "howling" over this site, thanks to Elsie.

The one we love and Bill likes:


We have died laughing a few times over at this image:
And we just did again.

I know what you are thinking and yes, This is Sarah.
And yes, pigs just flew. Thank you very much and have a nice day.

Seriously. It was time for a new look. I decided today that I was going to do this, and do it I did. Never mind that the dishes are still in the sink, the kids are not in bed, my room is a mess and I need a shower.

We are Officially a Blogging Family.

It started with Me- about every other day at first, now two or three times a month, if I'm lucky.

It was perfected by Bill- who now posts approximately 2387594383794 times a day.

It was embellished by Bo- who blogs just as he speaks.

Our latest addition is Emma. Who is not blogging as I type, but rather is dancing and breathily singing a little song she is making up about a garden in the spring.

And so, our cyber world is complete.

It really is all lists these days, isn't it?

Argentina Bakery. Epanadas. Hello, darlings. I've missed you so.

New mixed CD's from new friends.

Skype-ing with the Florida fam.

So You Think You Can Dance.


A messy scrapbook table taking up the whole of my dining room. Has not been touched in 3 days, but it promises loads of fun.

Football games and Catfish Sams.

Bo's contentment with 5th grade so far.

Emma's description of her determination in dance. "Sometimes, when something is hard, I just look down a little bit with my eyes, and say to myself 'I AM gonna do this. It's hard, but I'm gonna do it.'"

Her other comment tonight after dance: "I'm starvaciously hungry!"

The fact that Minnie killed a bug today by stepping on it. She lunged and barked and jumped, and then smashed her paw down on that bad boy. I think she might prefer to use the magazine method next time.

The luxury of getting in my comfy bed each and every night. It's the best reward for a long day.

A productive morning. Collectively.

This morning before school we: Woke up. Got dressed. Played keep away with Minnie under the bed. Tackled Dad. Made fun of Dad for acting so coochie about Minnie. Ate Breakfast. Discussed Emma's grooming skills. Discussed coordination of outfits with Bo. Discussed Six Flags and whether there is an Aquaman ride. Discussed what the Aquaman ride WOULD be like if it existed. Got tackled by Dad. Called Minnie "Sweet Honey Punkin Sugar Puppy Love." Discussed whether the lego bricks used to build the real house were more expensive than regular bricks. Quickly decided they were. Did not clean our rooms or make our beds. Laughed. Listened to Dad's singing. Dawdled over Fruity Cherrios. Reminded certain people not to dawdle over Fruity Cheerios. Applied makeup. Fed the dog. Threw in a load of laundry. Checked email. Checked facebook. Packed lunch. Brushed teeth. Attached suction toothbrushes to mirror in a decorative fashion. Left pj's on the floor. Turned out the lights. Walked to school. Drove to school. Went to sleep.
