Maybe it's a season, but for whatever reason, blogging just isn't a priority. It certainly isn't that I don't have much to blog about because we've been going full speed enjoying the start of, the fair & lots more.

Sometimes I feel too busy, but mostly I just feel grateful. Grateful for this life, this season, that incredible hubby of mine, these high energy boys, all the things that require my time & energy. So, I'm praising God for it all. Sometimes, it doesn't always look like a life of praise, but I want it to be. So, I'll just keep savoring each & every one of these moments.

Here's another great perspective:

Breakfast like Buddy

May I begin by saying if you've never had the privilege of watching "The Elf," starring Will Ferrell. You are really missing out. It's a movie that we love dearly in our house. In fact you may recall one of Jack's funny musings from way back when he first was introduced to the Christmas comedy.

Recently, he asked if he could eat the same kind of breakfast that Buddy has. In case you've forgotten, elves stick to the four main food groups: "Candy, Candy Canes, Candy Corns & Syrup." So, Josh promised him that the next time we had spaghetti, he could make a Buddy-like breakfast for his dessert. Fast forward a couple of weeks and spaghetti was on the menu for dinner. Unfortunately, I had to scoot off to a meeting before plates were clean that night, but Josh did manage to capture it for posterity's sake.

Josh swears there were some spaghetti noodles under there somewhere. I guess it was good, although he hasn't asked to do it again...yet.

Big Fat Spider

Sam likes to sing, and sometimes makes up his own words to some classic tunes. Hence the creation of Big Fat Spider, borrowing the tune & most of the lyrics of Itsy Bitsy Spider. Enjoy!

Back to School

So, I'm a couple of weeks behind. What else is new? The boys are back in preschool. This year Jack is in pre-K and is at school four days a week until 1 pm. Sam is enjoying his class two days a week, and we have fun playing, grocery shopping and running errands on our mornings without big brother. 

Day two for Jack, First day for Sam:

 "Mom, take a picture of me like this."
