To Do Today

So there are a million thoughts running around in my head, and I can't seem to make enough lists. I'm SUCH a list person, and it's nice to know what I need -and have a "plan b" so to speak, for not forgetting. This is often not effective. Although my brain is coming back from the pregnancy (the "placenta-suck" as it has been referred to) I still have scattered thoughts and moments that make me a bit on the less-reliable side. So, today I will snag up the girls and head out to Sams, where I'll pick up the pictures I had taken of the girls and sent for 1-hour printing (over a month ago), pick up some bread, some butter, and will probably be talked into getting a pretzel. Next, we'll head to Michaels where I have some fun Mother's day ideas that we'll attempt to complete this weekend. Finally, we MIGHT hit Walmart for a few odds and ends. Yes, this sounds like a LOT to do in one day --especially on the day for the BEST tv shows (go Office!!!), however, it's better to do it now than have to try to get it done on the weekend. That's when you do stuff you want to do, right? These errands are all pending the potential melt-down of either little girl, which could leave me in a state of hurried frenzy to get back to my safe home where if someone drops to the floor in tears you can walk away without feeling like the worst mom ever to take her children out in public. ...That's a long sentence.


Miss Elizabeth is a very observant little girl! Apparently today she ratted me out. Ok, here's the story: This last weekend the girls and I headed out for SLC to spend some quality time with the fam-dam-bly. So I veered off the beaten path at the MAV in Farr West in order to get some "cheap" gas. Well, I hit a road closed sign, and a mess where I couldn't figure out if I was supposed to be able to go through or not, so I went around the sign and pulled in. I got my gas, left, had a fabulous weekend, no biggie. Today Lance called me and told me I was SO BUSTED! I guess Ella was taking notes when I did this, because she told daddy all about how "Salt Lake was closed, but mommy just went around the sign" -and later said "lucky the police didn't see her, she'd be in jail!" WOW!!! Kids rock.


Amelia is our little angel. The pictures above were taken when she was only 5 days old. The last is in her daddy's arms. *These were the small days. Our little chunk is now a whopping 20+ lbs and only 4 month's old. We love her bubbly and smiley personality. She is so chill and calm. Eating is different -it's kind of funny to watch her shake until she gets her bottle. :) What a doll.
