An A-ism

Look at that, I lost track of a whole 'nother month. To sum it up, G turned 9, my inlaws visited for 10 days and I caught 8 mice during their visit. There are so many things I could say about that last sentence..... but I won't. I may try to put up pictures of the incredibly ugly cake I made her or maybe I'll preserve my vanity.
In other news, my oldest child is um...quick? Intelligent? Sassy? I'm not sure which fits her best. You decide.
She's recently asked me, "My friends are going to X, so can I go with them?"
I said, "If they all jumped off a cliff, would you?"
She responded, without hesitation, "Well, I'd get to see Jesus!"
(I told her to go ahead with her friends... I mean, her logic isn't all bad....)

After waiting 18 months, we finally painted the family room! :D I've been wanting to get this room painted since we finished the basement and put in new floors up here (November of 2009) but the DaddyMan took the year of 2010 off from doing home improvement projects. Sigh. He also didn't think it needed painted. :P
But I convinced him and I LOOOOOVE how it looks.

Yes, there is still a blank spot over the couch. But...I'm getting something for Mother's Day to hang there and I'm VERY excited about it! I'll let you know when it arrives! :D
