Saturday, and Blogging

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

I’m really a little too sleepy to write, but isn’t that the best time? I’ve decided that I want to write every day so I’m going to at least put something in here to start it all going again.

Our Saturday.

My brothers Mitch and Philip came down from Seattle for a little visit. They stopped in at our house for awhile then took Koen, Carly and I out to my mom and dad’s while Darren had Deeder out shopping for Sunday’s dinner.

Deeder joined us shortly at my mom and dads.
We spent a few hours over there; Deeder got to playing computer games with Seth (hopefully Seth didn’t mind the company), Carly napped after tiring of chasing cats, Koen got to be held by whoever passed through the house. In the midst of this I worked on my dreads.

(I adore seeing my dad hold my babies)

My nice momma made coffee for me while I was busy messing with my head. Thanks for the coffee, Mom. I’m still awake, even though it was only halfcaff. That’s a good thing, since I had a house to clean up and diapers to wash.
The diapers still need to be folded, but that can wait for tomorrow.

Time to sleep.

Blogging is a lot like working out, or organizing; if I procrastinate after supposedly comitting to consistency, yeah…not good.

Blur due to neglected camera lense.

Happy Earth Day :)

Today I make the resolution to…

Keep Carly in cloth diapers (something I have fallen out of the habit of doing since we moved to NewHouse

And work extra hard on getting Deeder to “go” on the potty.

How are you honoring the day? Any special plans to be especially Green today?

Deeder, Carly and I spent the day at our new house. I brought my camera along to get some snaps of us in the place empty. As long as it doesn’t last too long eating on the empty kitchen floor and napping in sleeping bags is fun and ought to be remembered.

We were also supposed to be finding perfect places for household items, unpacking small things and mapping out where we would like the big stuff.

As you can see in the pictures we brought quite a few of the kids play things from my mom and dad’s house–we ended up doing a lot more playing than we did organizing.

I have a lifetime to get this place in order, right?

Starting small, I got the two children to get together in the living room for a picture together…




They spent hours playing, with a break of a half hour nap and brief snack. I got a couple pictures of them side by side again as they were having another bite to eat while we waited for my mom to pick us up for dinner. I’m glad they snacked before she came because the minute they were in the car both were asleep. Deeder never woke at all, and five hours later he’s still out cold in his bed fully dressed.



Our time at the new house was great with the exception of Deeder smacking right into a pointy corner in his bedroom. I took this picture of him and I hours after he thwacked his head so the wound doesn’t look nearly as bad as it initially did.


Tomorrow our new refrigerator is going to be delivered. When that comes we’ll go food shopping and stock up to live here forever and ever. :)

Then someday we’ll buy a table. In the meanwhile…we’ll just appreciate having the refrigerator.

Funny fact: We thought we’d save money by getting dial up rather than high speed internet. Guess what! Dial up isn’t available anymore.

The quality of these pictures is horrible–grainy, dark, over exposed. But check out what’s going on…

Deeder’s playing with Carly–hey, SHARING with Carly!
He sees me taking pictures of this amazing moment.
And then goes and gets his camera to do what he’s seen me do so many times before. Capturing the moment. Slight difference though, something that I’ll point out later…
He needs to turn the camera around. :)

Carly’s baptism was a couple weeks ago.
Deeder’s face beamed with pride when I put his vest on, and by the time the whole getup was on he was giggling with delight! His pride and satisfaction in the outfit made him, in my opinion, outshine his sister.

She wore the dress that Darren picked out, but probably wouldn’t choose it for every day attire.
