Picky Felicity

Felicity is clever, she came to the breakfast table saw what there was to eat and and walked away saying "I'll wait for snack"

April 26 2007

On again, off again that's what the weather is!
Katie will be reading at the Authors Tea at school on the 2nd (of May, that is) I am very excited for her, more so because the teacher must think Katie has progressed enough to participate (progressed out of her Shy Shell, that is)
So YEA! for Katie.

Everett loves to work, Everyday he gets up ready to put on his boots and run out and work with his dad, its very cute, he has a little sunburned face:) He will come running in ever so often to have me fill his cup with water and then run back out to work again, the plus side he has started to take naps again and will still be ready for bed at 8:00 ( I bumped back his bedtime a half hour) so he works pretty hard, they have been digging ditches and cutting down brush hauling logs, Everett's specialty is hauling logs and brush, he's very good at that.

Elly has been showing her Hippo side (hey Elly and Felicity look alike, why not the same temperament!).

The Warm Weather Has Arrived

It was Hot today, 82 degrees!
The kids have been loving it, tonight Joff played freeze tag with them outside, they played that alot last year, so they were really excited to start it up again, also leap frog and Katie has been showing them how to jump rope.

A book we borrowed from the library that I would very much recommend is
" The Curious Demise of a Contrary Cat" by Lynne Berry. All of the kids really enjoyed it and Ithought the illustrations were well done. (Well Done? Sounds like I am talking about a turkey just out of the oven! I liked the pictures anyway.)

I have cookies to take out of the oven, so thats it for tonight.

Alice refuses to eat anymore, she says
"Eating is too messy"

The Daily Report


We have received more snow and have been promised more, I am contemplating putting the Christmas tree back up.
I was in Wal*Mart today, they have out shorts and swimsuits, outdoor summer toys, now you have to remember two things

1. Its the middle of April, so those things might not sound so unusual.
2.When I walked in the store, It was snowing and there was already two feet on the ground, with (as I mentioned before) a promise of more snow and no end in sight.
3. Don't forget about Global Warming and all those poor Polar Bears, if it gets to cold in there native lands, we have the cold and I am sure we can squeeze in a few some where around here.

I know I said two but I could help but slip in a third.

I am still playing around with a logo for my photography, I haven't come up with anything I really like.

And for a child report:
Evs likes to have sword fights, his new trick is to "die" in slow motion and on the carpet, so he will run to the carpet and proceed to groan and turn every which way whilst falling to the floor, then when he is done twitching, he rolls his head to the side and sticks his tongue out.
I swear I have no clue where he learned that!
He expects to be tickled after. If he new how he would also probably ask for a Scooby Snack.

Katie wrote out the Alphabet on my counter in red permanent marker. She did a very good job.

Felicity likes to sneak out of bed in the middle of the night so she can play with her sisters Ponies and Petshops and I suspect a couple of dinosaurs.

Alice can pour chocolate milk for the cats and the dog without spilling a drop.

Els likes to sing to her toes.

Aren't they all talented:)

I ate a "snow apple"

Yes I did, I am feeling a bit down that Winter is still here, it missed the memo, it slept in, it cheated and it is so darn wrong! So I went out, plopped down in the middle of the snow, made a "snow apple" and ate it. This is what I have figured out about sitting in the snow eating "snow apples" pretending its Not still winter:

1.My butt froze solid, it very wierd when you can't feel your own butt, you know its there, but still...............
2."snow apples" taste wayyy to much like snow
3.Pretending its winter when its summer, is alot more fun then pretending its summer in the winter
4.After my sixth "snow apple" I had to pee very badly, but couldn't move because my butt was frozen to the snow
5.Yes your butt can freeze to the snow
6.I would give for some global warming


My car broke down, well it won't start, for anything, not even Scooby Snacks
I just ate a candy bar. Hershey with almonds.

I would give for some Global Warming right now.

This and That

We went to Bangor yesterday, It was fun. I love to shop! We got the girls new Easter dresses and Evs an Easter outfit, he won't wear button ups and vests and its not worth the fight so we bought him just a shirt and pant set with dinosaurs, he picked it out himself and loves it, besides it was on sale and cheap! I bought the clothes at the Burlington Coat Factory, my absolute favorite place to buy clothes.
It snowed, I believe I mentioned that, I posted pics of the recent snowfall on my Favorite blog.

My brother Michael is divorced, his (now ex) kind of went crazy (my opinion). My brother James is moving with his sister Melissa and her kids to Mo. I hope he will be happy wherever he goes.

We rented Charlottes Web and I have to say it was a HUGE disappointment, don't bother watching it, the voice of Charlotte was done by Julia Roberts and its horrible, her voice drives me crazy throughout the movie.
We also watched Eregon, it was okay, predictable and seemed like a amateur job over all, I wouldn't recommend it and won't watch it again, I haven't read the books, I intend to though and then we shall see how well the movie was followed.

Time for breakfast!

Finally, its been a while I know

I am still alive. Yea.
Would you believe that it is snowing?raining a little too, but also definitely snow.
Els has discovered her feet, she now holds on to them every chance she gets ( maybe she's afraid of losing them again? )
I finished Aveyond, beat the bad guy and all that, it is a fun game. (repeat)
A website you should check out if you like fonts: . I think I will add some of my favorite links to the permanent info on the front of mamacow, look for that, also a playlist of my favorite music, be wary of that though because I really do like a bit of everything.
April already, I didn't play a single Aprils fools joke yesterday :( ah well there is always next year, if I remember :)
Joff has plans for a huge garden this year, there are little cups all over the house in every window and every available shelf, little green shoots are coming up and Joff has transplanted to bigger cups for some of the taller plants.
