BORING POST ALERT! Just keeping it real here. I spent last week not doing much housework. I did some laundry and kept the living part of the house tidy, kitchen cleaned up, etc. Today, so far, I am rocking it! Load #3 of laundry is in the washer. Two bathrooms cleaned. My bedroom is 95% better. Joseph's room is all neat. I even changed LIGHT BULBS!! I'm going to keep going and get as much finished as I can.

Also, I started a new weight loss plan and have lost 7.5 pounds already. That's the size of a baby, well, a normal baby, not MY baby, but a baby! WOOHOO!

This is Samuel. Can you guess how old he is today? I think he's excited.

Snowpocalypse 2010! Ok, so not really, but was have over 2 inches of snow in our backyard and that is enough for my kids to be thrilled beyond belief! William went outside and built a snowman as tall as William is! Isaac came outside for a minute, until I realized he was BARE FOOT! and sent him right back inside.

Chili for dinner, pot of coffee for the adults in the house. Movies, fires, HOORAY!

Books! I am now a few chapters into Leviticus. Genesis was so much fun! Exodus started off with some drama, but boy, the specifics of building the tabernacle were, well, specific! Leviticus, what can I say? There were a LOT of dead animals in the Bible.

Pirate Latitudes by Michael Crichton. Good. Not Michael's usual thousand pages of super in depth writing, but enjoyable.

Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. My baby sister told me to read it. She assured it me it had NOTHING to do with the Bible code of his other books. She was almost completely right and she apologized for the wrong part.

Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson. Wow. Amazing. Deep. Sweet. Well written. I have the second book in my iPhone for the next time I get 3 minutes to read!

Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. Wow. I cried at the end. Twice. I don't cry about books much. A difficult read because of the content, but truly a wonderful book. I also got Lucky to read later.

Any other suggestions?

I found the rest of the pictures!
Lydia, she'll be 9 in a month. So big. She is hugely emotional. She is amazingly empathetic and helpful, mostly. But when she blows, STAND BACK because stuff gets hairy then. LOVES Geronimo Stilton books. She was reading one here.
Samuel. This kid is a NUT! He perfected swimming this summer, including being able to stop and BREATHE while swimming. He can't make it all the way across the pool, but he will next year.


Joseph. I think his smile says it all. Sweet sweet baby boy. I love him love him love him.

William: 7.5 My beach boy. Look how blonde he was here! He is such a sweet kid. I love love love me some little boys!

Our beach vacation, 2009. Yes, I know it's October, the 31st to be exact. But I never posted these, and they are REALLY cute, and Nathan hasn't put the current pictures on the server yet, so I can't put them up anyway. I PROMISE I will try to get the fall pictures up before Christmas, but I make no promises.


Isaac: He learned to swim this summer. Head under the water, kicking, whole nine yards. Very cute on a 2 year old!


Celeste: turned 10 this summer, double digits. Got her ears pierced, has a red-headed best friend, loves to read, generally sweet with a streak of sassy in there for fun



Nathan: sweet as ever, look at that smile. I won't tell you how old he is, but it is somewhere between 36 and 38, at least for a few more weeks





There we are! We went deep sea fishing with my parents and caught some MONSTROUS snapper. Truly a huge fish!


Ok, I uploaded more pics, but they were eaten by the interwebz. I'll see what I can do for you.
