A Little Update.....

A certain family member recently complained that she doesn't like this giveaway thing I am doing because she is always disappointed posts aren't an update of what my little family is up to. I tried to explain that (A) I am posting as much family stuff as normal, I am just doing the giveaways as well (B) How much new stuff does she really think that the three of us do? and (C) - Though I just thought this....the last time this person updated her blog on what was going on in her life was in September. Anyway. I am a peacemaking type. (Occasionally) So here you go. What we are up to.....

Just got my Blogging by Mail package today. YUM!!! Thanks Erin!

Shane and Lydia are perfecting the art of shaped pancakes every Saturday morning.
(Right before Shane runs. That would explain the wristband.)




Shane and Lydia are also watching a lot of The Charlie Brown Halloween Special.
(I replaced all the photos in my living room with orange and black paper. Festive no?)


Yesterday I took Lydia to the YMCA Fall Festival. To say she had the time of her life might be an understatement. All of her friends were there - Never got a photo of them all together though - bummer. Almost all the food was safe for my little peanut allergy princess. The pizza, most of the candy...the chocolate pudding (which she is showing off in the top pic.)

And a few of Lydia quotes that I wrote down lately.....enjoy.

  • As I am changing Lydia diaper, explaining again how great it is for big girls to use the potty, Lydia explains "My poopie is delicious and nutritious!"
  • Last night I hear Lydia calling me to change her diaper. Afterwards she looks at me with emphasised admiration and says, "Oh Mommy. I am so proud of you for changing my bum."
  • "Mommy! When I grow up I want to be a truck!
  • Right after vacuuming, Lydia came up to me and said "Oh Mommy! You made the floor look magnificent!" (We've been working on the difference between Magnificent and Maleficent.)
  • The other day Lydia and I were in our swimsuits, about to get in the pool when I hear her gasp. "Mommy! What is that called?" - she is pointing to the extra "skin" being pushed out from my underarm as I reach into my beach bag. She is obviously amazed there is a body part she is unaware of. I was trying to figure out what to call this sad little bit of chub when she exclaims "Tiny boobies!".......... Later in the pool she notices that I have a freckle on one of my "tiny boobies" and yells at the top of her lungs "Mommy! I see your tiny nipple!" Nice.

    That is hysterical! Kids crack me up. Lately, my "just turned 3" year old has been trying to figure out why I'm missing some anatomy that he has. LOL Then there's always the public restrooms when he asks if I'm going pee-pee or poo-poo... LOL

    Thanks Nat. I needed that little update. I love how Shane looks as enthralled with Charlie Brown as Lydia. As for updating my blog, I just updated it 2 days ago! And the day before I blogged as well, and two days before that (or something pretty close to that time line.) And it may not be about Dave and me, but it IS about MY family. Just my thoughts on members of my family. Still, I'm glad you're a peacemaker. And I'm glad Lydia's poop is delicious and nutritious.

    You have such a darling family! I love the photos of your hubby with your babe! I'm so glad you are having a fun time with her - fall festivals are such a thrill for all family members, aren't they?

    THANK YOU to the "mystery family member" because I wasn't going to say anything. I know the giveaways work for you, BUT....these aunties need family updates and pictures. This one was the best. I just read the quotes to the in-laws and we all cracked up. We already miss Shane, so give him a big hug for us when he gets home tonight. Thanks again for the fun updates :) We love you guys!!!
