I am a stay at home mom who loves crafts, scrapbooking, baking, surfing the web, and chasing my kids around. I just realized the house is NEVER going to be clean again. I have an amazing husband who is patient, loving and who cooks and cleans. We've been married for over ten years now. This is our life.

What we've been up to

Here's a couple things we've been up to lately.  AJ has been writing his letters.  The left to right thing something trips him up still.  Sometimes he writes A, and then J on the left side. Still learning.
The playground still provides hours of fun!  We've taken down the Pirate flag and changed it to the Don't Tread on Me flag.  It used to be hanging in Taro's office.  So AJ thinks it's very cool.  But don't think it's not a Pirate Ship anymore.  We spend lots of time running from the crocodiles on the grass sea and find safety on the pirate ship.  Then we usually have to replace the engine, and or lots of miscellaneous engine parts before we can sail away.  It's alot of work running a pirate ship, matey.  Rrrr.

We have another addition to the backyard.  It was completed this afternoon. 
Wait for it.  Wait for it...

A playhouse!  Made from an old pallet and huge wooden box that was shipped to Taro's work.  He cut out windows and added a door in the back.  The kids love it.  AJ is already calling it a rocketship.  HA HA!

It just needs a few coats of paint and it will be a great place for the kids to have adventures.

And of course, we swing the night away!

Good job on your letters, AJ! And a new rocketship, how fun! How do they both look taller already? Geez!

Can I just say I had to do the word verification SEVEN times to post that comment above!! Could they make it any harder to read!? I. Am. Not. A. Robot.

HAHA! San San! And they both are probably taller already. I have gotten AJ a new pair of church shoes each month for the past three months. It's crazzzzzyy!!! He's gonna be Taro's height before he starts kindergarden.
