First Day of School!!

Okay, so I know that I am a little late with the first day of school thing, but this is the first time I have posted a pic by myself, and since I do not take a lot of pics, the choices were slim. I cannot believe that Max is all ready going to school everyday. It seems like just yesterday we brought him home from the hospital.

This pic was taken on the bus on our way back to our cars. Yes we got to ride in a cheeser. Max was so excited about that, but he really was tired of me taking pictures.

Challenge Accepted!!

Okay, so I accepted Kara's challenge and started a blog (thanks to Katie's technical support). I am not sure how often I will be posting, but at least I am going to give it a shot. So I guess I have been tagged and have to reveal 7 little known facts about myself. (Gosh this is going to be hard)!!

1. I know this is pathetic but I balance my check book just about every single day. Web banking just makes it so easy and I am obsessed with those numbers adding up right!!

2. I love the movie Holiday, and since I have it on my DVR I watch it at least once a week. At least the parts I really like. It just makes me smile.

3. I really hate taking baths. I totally prefer showers. Since Chad and I have been married (over six years) I have probably only been in the bathtub in this house about 5 times.

4. I, like my mother, love to make cookie dough and not make any cookies. I can still remember the first time she let us do this. We lived in Yukon and I had a few friends spend the night. We stayed up all night playing Yahtzee (yes that is right) and making ourselves sick on cookie dough (my mother was with us the entire time of course).

5. I love reminiscing about my high school days. Some people say they would not go back for anything, but I had a blast and would do it again in a minute. I have such great memories. (Of course I would not give up my four boys now for anything.)

6. I love to read. Something I could reread over and over again is the Little House on the Prairie books and the Box Car Children books (both of these sets of books I was introduced to in elementary school). I used to fantasize that I would be living like that. I still think that it would be great!!

7. I really think that I am turning into my mother. I used to never cry about anything and now the smallest things getting my teary eyed. Sometimes I really cannot believe that it is me with tears running down my face. I always remember thinking that I would never be like that. I guess you really do turn into your mother.

First Post

Katie is trying to teach me how to post pictures, and this picture was taken by Chad (obviously not a professional photographer). It is not that easy to get these boys to cooperate for a pic!!

Starting a blog!!!

So, Katie finally showed me how to start a blog, hopefully I will actually try to post!!! Surely, if my mom can figure it out than so can I.
