Marching to Me

It feels like forever since I just plain ol' blogged about what I've been up to. Mostly, it’s been hard to find the time to stop and even process life – ever have those days weeks months? It's now MARCH and my head just can’t seem to wrap around that fact. March.

Weekends have been full and only seem to be getting fuller. We’ve been busy doing fun family activities (and ignoring projects) but that's also coming to an end. Expect some Before & After photos of some house projects that I am eagerly awaiting. Seriously, I'm a power tool geek.

Oh, and I have been blogging, just not here. I volunteer for a great organization and upkeep their blog here. Plus I contribute & guest post to several other blogs.

Other ways I'm getting back to ME is investing in a DSLR camera and really digging into my garden full throttle this spring. So, that's an update on me. I'll be back more often to update on my silly family next.

Wordless Wednesday

Playroom in Action

It's Time ...

It's time for us to dig into the garage for E. to find one of the two trikes buried in there and just let him go at it. His sister didn't master it until she was closer to three years old but yesterday we were at a park and Super E. jumped on another kid's tricycle and started to pedal a bit.

These 2 kids are so different -- always keeping me on my toes.

It's also time for me to restart up my kid's music blog. I used to really enjoy it.

Colors of our Weekend

We are a family that is happiest surrounded by color. Our house is a reflection of this and so are our weekends.

This weekend's colors were MULTICOLORED as we celebrated Day of the Dead at the Walters Art Museum.

I love Sundays. The eternal laziness of the day. Well, most of our Sundays are spent that way. Not this one though.

Today by 10AM we had already:
- made super cheesy scrambled eggs and cornbread
- put a second coat of paint on the playroom (photos later)
- moved a huge pile of sandbags and mulch since those projects are NOT getting done for now
- showered (and I'm online while Mister showers) and then we're headed down to our favorite museum for THIS.

Saturday Letter

Dear E,

The amount of time that Mommy has put into your baby book is absolutely no reflection on how much I love you. Instead it shows how I'd rather spend time living the moment with you rather than documenting your weight, height and tooth count.

Do you buy that?

Well, let's face it - we barely make it out the door on time to any place and I'm running circles to keep up with the four different schedules we've got going on right now. If I sit down to: 1) write 2) make a call or 3) type -- it's an instant signal to you and your sister that I need to come to your (this week) 1) tea party 2) circus or 3) be a swamp monster.

But you're doing really good, kiddo. We laugh a lot, we play a lot, we dance, sing and make messes. And you are just one heck of a character - you are goofy and silly. My kind of guy.

Just know that you were healthy and happy -- even if it's not written down.


Your Silly Mommy
