today is a mental health day

Wednesday, April 8, 2009

At 8:00 this morning I declared that today is a p.j. day. No one can get dressed, until it is absolutely necessary. Which will probably be around 4pm (the big girl has dance class). We got schoolwork done at a satisfactory-level. Everyone has been fed and laundry is going. I made it clear to the children that I must get pictures today. And I discovered something...if you time it just right....your kids can be incredibly cute when they are stalling naptime. It also helps if you let them jump on the bed. Then, of course, you can do the hardwork of getting them down and go visit the blog that you haven't thought much about in over a week. And here you go...

She can chill with the best of them, eating an enormous apple.

I claim these dimples. That's from me. ;)


Too busy eating to give me a smile...



The calm is now over and it's time to run to dance class, feed the baby, set up dinner and more cleaning before the small group comes over, call my daughter's teacher, have small group, and all the crazy stuff that keeps this life full (but good full).  I already can't wait to be in my pj's again (heehee).

Cool pictures! I like the shadowy look...not sure the technical name for it. :) I LOVE mental health days. I try to take at least 1 a week. Shhhh...don't tell anybody. Funny...we watched "Marley and Me" on Monday night. It was good. You'll be surprised to hear that I DID NOT cry at the movie. I just kept thinking, "Marley needs to go...then things WILL be better." I liked her character too...it was really believable, and I totally saw her love, devotion, and self sacrifice. Wow, this is getting to be a really long comment. Good post friend.

Kendall, I stumbled on your blog last night from a link on Laura Waden's blog while I was procrastinating cleaning up the kitchen. :) Looking at all your wonderful pictures was a GREAT way to procrastinate on dishes! You are an excellent photographer! Your girls are so beautiful!
