Three Worlds

I've often said how it can be challenging for me as a mother to meet the needs of my three children who are in completely different stages and see the world in completely different ways.

Sadie is winning turkeys at class parties.

Deklan is spinning webs, riding horses and inseparable from Kash.

Sophie is loving her Boon spoon as she is put in and out of her carseat and going here and there. If you want a Boon spoon (which I know you will because they are awesome!) go here.

Truth be told....I wouldn't have my world any other way.

Here we go again....

I vaguely remember years ago watching an Oprah where there was a lady who was a full time prize seeker. She entered every sweepstakes imaginable. Cereal boxes, mail entry, newspaper ads, game shows, you name it. She proudly showcased her winnings from over the years: money, a new tv, bikes, cameras, and the list goes on. I remember being a little impressed but also thinking she had no life.

I'm just promising you that I do have a life......which will resume after I win something. Ha!

This one is cute (and they mention a holiday boutique here in Gilbert that I may just have to attend). Here's my extra entry!

Change of luck....

I'm feeling the need to win something. Something cute. Something I love. Something I don't want to live without. Something I CAN'T live without. Okay, maybe that's a little extreme but seriously is this too much to ask for a girl being audited? And that's not a typo....I did type A-U-D-I-T-E-D.

So in keeping with the spirit of the recession and my need for free I'm entering this contest and for an extra chance at winning I'm posting the link:

Be blog may turn into a boring linkage to other blogs until I win something. Or it could lead you to some very cool websites and in that case you'll be thanking me.

Halloween 2009

Creative juices are gone. That's G as in Goblin. O as in owl. N as in night. E as in eeery. All creativity has been expended on door decor, costumes galore (bats, posh pumkin, cute cupcake), trunk or treat festivities and parties, parties, parties.
Happy Halloween!!!

Carving Comments

When it comes to carving pumpkins we are like a well oiled machine. The setting has been the same for the past five years (FIVE years?!?!). Only the little bodies behind the counter have gotten bigger and a little more independent. In addition to my other annual duties at our pumpkin carving night, I bounced the baby and jotted down the comments that filled the air:

"Dad, I want you to get my guts!


This is my favorite part of Halloween, carving pumpkins!

Spooky! O.K., now I'm going to wash my hands again.

Mom, why aren't you helping out?

I'm not going to touch the guts anymore.


Start thinking about what you want the face to look like.

I want to cut it out.

HEY! You got it on my arms Sadie!

Here, try a piece!

Where's the knife? I need it.

I think daddy should do the cutting.

Why? I've cutted before.

Yes!!!! I cutted it!

Look Mom! Mine has a tooth!

I'm cutting the hair cuz daddy doesn't know how."

Happy Halloween from our house to yours!
