Things I've Learned....

*painting is messy...but it keeps the kids QUIET and in one place for a very long time
*while the kids are taking a bath...clean the bathroom
*coloring with kids can be very therapeutic
*kids love to tell you ALL about what they don't guess (because there is a good chance you will be wrong)
*cheerios can be used for so much more than just eating...glue them to paper, string them and make a healthy alternative to a "candy" necklace, etc.....
*texting friends helps keep THIS mom sane :)

Brownie "NiNi" (nee-nee)

Emily isn't the only girl in the house anymore!!! Bring on the pink and purple!!!!

For some reason this picture won't turn, but this is our new puppy, NiNi!

She is so sweet! She is 7 months old, a shnoodle, and is very good with the boys!
