Why try to explain miracles to your kids when you can just have them plant a garden. ~Robert Brault,

I found my camera.
It was on the top shelf of the book shelf. Way off in the corner. Someone, who shall remain nameless (it was me), put it up there to keep grubby kid mitts off of it. Then she-who-shall-remain-nameless forgot it was up there. And it got lost. Like Wheezy from Toy Story -------------------> shown here
I was delighted, and immediately fired up the computer to post the promised pictures. But when I turned on the camera, it told me that it was exhausted. (at least the battery was exhausted.)
Oh yeah, well, sure. I can understand that. You've been trying to survive on your own on the top corner of the bookshelf. No food. No water. No one to take pictures of. I'm sure the dust alone was almost more than you could bear. Poor, poor exhausted camera.
(see, this is how my camera feels)
So I've taken the exhausted battery and put it in the charger, and I'm happy to say that it's feeling much better tonight and will be back to its usual snappy self tomorrow (ha ha! get it?! SNAPPY self? 'cause camera's snap pictures? I'm so hilarious!)
On a totally unrelated note, I made banana bread today and we've already eaten most of it. We couldn't resist.
If I but knew where it was you would have splendid pictures of the goings-on of my life.
Like that Dev got baptized, and looked incredibly sweet in her floor-length, all white dress.
Like that Calvin may have a loose tooth and likes to show me.
Like that Bogey bonked his head on the piano and got a goose egg the size of Rhode Island.
Like that I had a birthday, and I don't think I've ever felt so old and so far removed from my youth as I suddenly do now.
But that may be because I got called to serve in Young Women. The first night I was there, and I realized I had no idea who the actors, or singers they were talking about even were, then I felt old. It may have nothing to do with now being 32. (I mean, 27)
Like that we're way into studying the solar system right now and are embarking on the adventure of making our own solar system model.
Like that Dev caught the cutest baby lizard I have ever seen in my life. Seriously, about the size of my thumb. awwww!
Like that I got a new sewing machine for my birthday and I have a brain full of tutorials to post now.
Like that we made our valentine's mailboxes out of recycled materials. Like that we made all our valentines ourselves.
Like that I made a rockin' valentine's dinner tonight--pork tenderloin (in my mind, I call it an elevenderloin every time!), roasted red potatoes that I cut into heart shapes, vegetable salad with the vegetables cut into hearts, and pears (cut in a heart shape) with an awesome raspberry sauce over it. Seriously, my kids were licking their plates. SO was the hubby. (I may have licked a little plate as well)
Like that I got an ultrasound done, and low and behold! there is a little peanut in there, wiggling and growing. (due: September 4) yes, this is an announcement.
I would be able to show you if I knew where my camera was. Have you seen it? I thought I put it right here. . . . .
(pictures to come soon. . . .I hope)
(p.s. I'm taking a poll. My playlist: annoying? enjoying it? get rid of it? what do you think?)
