A View from My Seat

Monday was my birthday… so I took my children out for a day on the town.  We stopped to gas up the beast.. and while #1 was pumping gas.. I snapped a couple of photos. 

(from left to right.. back to front) #2, #5, #4, #3.5, #3 and Moi


In this photo.. I didn't look at the camera.. because I spotted something crazy across the street.

I think that's an adult riding a bike in his underwear.. but I can't be sure… Only on Main Street in Kansas will you see this!

Pinterest Photo Challenge Day 28: Money

Today's Pinterest Photo Challenge is of money.

Each morning I take #4 to speech and #5 comes along so that he and I can do school together.   Sometime during our wait he has to go to the bathroom.  Almost everyday he asks if he can buy a milk from the lunch lady. I always say the same thing.  "I don't have any money with me. Remind me tomorrow." Today was no different.  Except he came back with 3 of these in his arms.

milk money.

I asked where he got them,and he said: "the lunch lady gave them to me!"

"How much are they? We will have to pay for those." I asked.

"No she said I could have them.  I told her 'we didn't have any money and that my brother, mother and I were really thirsty!' so she gave them to me."

I immediately went out to the car and got the money for the milk.  The lunch lady thought he was so cute and funny.


Making Monkey’s Happy & Transformers Dark of the Moon

transformers Dark side of the Moon, 3D, kids, bumblebee

This is Bumble Bee.. with 3D glasses on.

You may know this.. but just in case you don't… Transformers Dark Side of the Moon opened Tuesday. I received an email from AMC theaters Monday night saying they had some tickets left for their early show. 🙂

We don't go to the movies much.. OK let's be truthful. We watch 2-5 movies a week.. but they are all at our house. WE NEVER go to the theater.

The Man took me to the movie on our first date.. any one want to guess what it was?

If you guessed "Naked Gun".. you would be correct. He's such a romantic! 😉

This movie was special. #4 and #5 were SO excited about seeing this movie. We have the first two Transformer movies, and they've watched them probably 15-20 times. We thought it would be a great family memory and so worth it to them to be one of the first people to see the movie.

Holy smokes was it worth it.

I know the picture is blurry.. but that kid is pretending to shoot at the "stuff" flying at him.

#2 didn't shoot at the screen.. but I think he liked it 🙂

It wasn't my favorite movie, but it was great to see how far 3D has come since I was a kid. But the best part was to listen to them talk for the last 48 hours on how much fun they had and how much they love this movie.

Happy Four Months Baby!

It doesn't seem possible.. but my baby turned 4 months old yesterday. I've been trying and trying to get a photo of him smiling. I don't remember it being this hard to get a photo of any of the other kids smiles.

Here he is reflecting about his new favorite food.. green beans. By the way that weird sponge-y purple thing he's in.. it's called a "bumbo" seat. The best $40.00 you can spend on a kid.

Why is this lady taking my picture AGAIN?

I realized I could not rely on my own to get him to smile.. so I brought in his big brother #2. He always smiles at him…

It worked! Happy Fourth Month Birthday #6!
