If My Blog Had Voice Mail...


It would go something like this-

Hi, you've reached my blog's voice mail. I can't blog right now as my house is messy, I have lot's of errands to run, and my kids really need my time and attention. But I will get back to blogging as soon as I have a free minute.

Feel free to leave a message, or try back another time!

Thanks & Buh-Bye!



And here's a picture for my mom and Grandma Jojo's sake!

Thanks for the cute picture of Jack with a dirty face, he is cute regardless. I know you just put a pictue of him with a dirty face on your blogg because you knew it would bug me, right.
I'm so happy you are not blogging and spending more time with the boys they will love you even more for that, just remember you are Charlie's "I love you" and no one elses.

Thanks for dinner!
Love you tons, Mom

Fabulous idea. I'm off to buy a blog answering machine.

Okay, Mandee...I've been googling your name and "blog", and TWO HOURS later I've actually read enough to feel a little in-the-know of people I don't know! Your blog is beautiful, as is your family, and I have enjoyed reading some of your random thoughts. I am now convinced, more than ever of two things: 1)reading blogs is a sin for me. TWO HOURS! 2)I am VERY dull, and SOMEONE has GOT to help me decorate my house! (Yes, that is three - I'm also generous!)I love you, and I hope you're enjoying some quiet time.

i love your blog, but i will try not to get too sad that you are not blogging right now knowing that you are playing cars or reading with the boys, and/or driving one or all of them to a: practice, game, store, friends house, etc.

Very funny ! That would be swell if I have a teletype answering machine, or a signing blog answering machine.

You are clever...blog voicemail...that is great. You will be missed until you return, but I guess I can't give you a hard time for leaving us to be a mom.

Snowball Cookies

[image]
It snowed this week. And though we don't have many family traditions, one that we started when we became a family was to make Snowball Cookies on the first snowy day of the season. And since we like cookies so much, we usually make them on other random, snowy days, too. They help ease my pain and anxiety over winter. You know-- carbs. 
There is nothing better than Snowball Cookies and hot chocolate on a snowy day.
Snowball Cookies 1 c. butter 1/2 c. confectioners sugar 2 tsp. vanilla 2 c. sifted flour 1 c. chocolate chips 1 c. chopped pecans (an option I don't use) Additional confectioners sugar (for rolling)
Beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add remaining ingredients, mix. Use a teaspoonful (I use a small ice cream scoop) of dough and roll into small ball. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool slightly and roll in confectioners sugar. (I roll them twice.)

Christmas 2010

Christmas 2010 (I am in an honest enough mood to admit that this is not my favorite picture of my kids. And it was $15.) 
I promised Aaron that I wouldn't write about how this was our worst Christmas ever, so I won't.  So let's remember these things:

1. The conversation I had with Charlie just days before Christmas ... said in the midst of grumpy, overly hyper kids throwing Legos at each other

Me: You know what I want for Christmas? I want kids that will get along! Charlie: Do you mean new kids, or us? 
2. Having my dad sleepover on Christmas Eve and spend all of Christmas day with us- something he never does.

3. Fun parties and dinners with friends, family, and neighbors. Including our very first non-kid New Year's Eve celebration. Sign me up for that next year!

4. Visiting the Santa at Gateway Mall that was  grumpy and missing most of his bottom teeth.  He went on to scold me about what my kids had told him they want for Christmas- all Nintendo Dsi's.  And whi…

Let Us Eat Cake

We have some important events to celebrate at our house this weekend!

Today is Aaron's 44th birthday. I honestly thank the heavens for that man every day of my life, so I'm especially looking forward to celebrating him today! Although, I still need to go buy the presents. (Busy week.)

Today, we are also celebrating Jack's Preschool Graduation. Since he has a late birthday, I have always planned on waiting until he was 6 to start kindergarten. But now that he is finished with preschool, it's obvious we are both ready for him to start kindergarten next year. He's all registered, and we have his 5 year old "shots" appointment next month. And while I'm a little bit sad that our baby is growing up (in just the blink of an eye he'll be graduating from high school) I'm also excited to move onto the next phase of life.

Of course, Monday we'll celebrate a rainy Memorial Day, and Tuesday will mark 10 years of marriage for us.  TEN years.  Someti…
