Linking up with all of my random phone pics from the week!

For those of you that don't know, my husband wears a Santa hat the entire month of December. He has done that for as long as I've known him. Last year, Noah started wearing one whenever he was with dad. This year, I found a pink one for Faith - and today I found one for me! I'm not sure I will wear it the entire month of December, but I'm sure it will make a few appearances :)

You can put the princess dress on the girl, but you can't make the girl not make a goofy face.

This week we studied dinosaurs and the letter "D" for school. From me to Noah on his quad in the distance, we measured 110'. That was the approximate length of an Ultrasaurus. We also marked 100' for the length of a blue whale. Wouldn't want to run into either of those.

This is what Faith gets when she asks mom to make a life-jacket for an army man who wants to swim in the sink - a piece cut from the outside of a mini kleenex pack.

We may be in California but my kids love to play in the snow

I love the Target dollar section.
(what you don't see is the 15 pictures I had to take to get just one with the blinking Rudolph nose blinking "on")

This is what I need to learn to do! I took the kids in for a haircut and when Faith came around the corner she was back-combed, bobby-pinned, curled and glittered up - she looked so cute!!

Being a homemaker and a stay-at-homeschooling-mom requires working 14 hour days, taking few breaks, and appeasing sometimes moody bosses....

but when this is the paycheck, it's all worth it.

In March of 2006, two months before Noah was born, we moved into our home. We chose this house because it had a beautiful backyard and we knew that we were having a boy - a boy that would need a place to run and run and run. Today, as Noah and I played tag in the backyard during Faith's nap, all I could think about was the day we chose this house.

THIS is the very reason why we chose it.

Noah ended up with mud on his jeans, shirt, head - everywhere

He got pretty tired out - which made for a nice n' easy bedtime :)

life rearranged
