Flashback Friday

See Kristy, I told you I would steal it.
Anyway, I thought I would post some pics of when the kids and I went to Seattle. There are LOTS. So I am sure this won't be the last post about them

Most of these will be of the mountains on the Olympic Pennisula, as is this one

Wildflowers; aren't they pretty?

I am not sure why I took this picture. I must have been enamored with the tree

And last but certainly not least, this is my favorite picture in the mountains. I have it as the background on my laptop. If I knew my way around html, I would have it as the background on my blog, but I am nowhere near that elevated level of intelligence. Do not be surprised if it shows up again

Well, that's it for this week's edition of Flashback Friday. I must do something productive now, like make dinner

It's like Barney, only I don't like it

Yes, that is what she said when she saw this:

And then she said: "You do not do hip hop for a BABY show, it is just WRONG." And she said she would get mad at me if I put it in my blog, but I told her I just had to. Sorry, Gabrielle, some things are just too funny to be left alone

PS, I would be wary about clicking any of the videos listed at the end of the clip, for some youtube members thought it would be funny to use hip hop harry clips with some rather innapropriate music

The messages on my phone

So my cell phone has two messages in the inbox one of which has lingered for quite some time because I keep pressing 9 since it is so funny and the other one which I just received today which will probably endure the same fate. Keep in mind, these two messages are from the same person. So as I laugh, my kids want to know what is so funny so I let them listen to my messages. One starts out "What kind of a best friend are you if you don't answer your phone...", which is fair since I rarely answer my cell phone because I never hear it. The kids, knowing the speaker ask, is she your best friend? And of course I say yes. My daughter then says "You have a lot of best friends." but then Peter says: "Is it your BFF?" (Yes, exactly that way - with the letters) and I just about fell out of my chair, which would have been bad since I was driving. I said "Yes, she is my BFF" it was so funny!

Another Post about Benjamin

Well, it's not just MY fault. The kids take pictures of Benjamin, too. Here is Peter's latest and I think it just looks sooooo funny.

Gabrielle made the card next to Benjamin and Peter decided that it and "pengi" would be good props. Yes, those are his toes in the bottom of the picture, so my other kids ARE being visually represented.

The kids have decided that Benjamin looks 'mad' in this picture. Well, I just can't stop laughing.

The questions we love to hear

One of the very best things about being a mom is you get to listen to those darndest things children say. Yesterday, my "not the youngest anymore" nonchalantly walked into the kitchen and as he was breezing by just happened to ask: "Hey, Mom, when is the end of time?" just like asking what we were going to have for dinner and expecting an answer in the same manner. It took all my willpower not to drop to the floor and curl up in fits of laughter.

Peter has also become quite the stager when it comes to pictures.
Just a few days ago he said:"If I close my eyes and then you took a picture, that'd be cute, right?
Times like these are totally the best reasons for being a mom
