The Underwear Fairy has bit the dust!

For those of you that fondly remember the Underwear Fairy, she has gone. But do not be sad, because she is being replaced by the equally as cool Vitamin Fairy.

Ashley is a great gal that works in Liberia. (Go check out her blog ) . Last time she went she asked for help with new underwear for the kids.

At the end of February she is going back to Liberia, this time with bags jam packed with kids chewable vitamins!! So here’s what YOU can do;

  • Go to
  • Sign the pledge
  • Go buy kids vitamins or send her a gift card to like Wal-Mart or Target and Ashley will go get them herself.
  • send to Vitamin Fairy.

See really easy.

O Christmas tree……

I think we have set a record, we got our tree up with 10 days still to go until the big day! Usually its like that week/couple of days before the 25th.  Actually we got the tree on Saturday morning, so that is like 12 days before Christmas(granted it hung out in our garage for the weekend, cause we were way too busy to put it up!).

But alas it is up in all its sparkly light glory.  The biggest obstacle was trying to get all 6 kiddos, in front of the tree, smiling for the camera. But after a couple of  bad shots I threatened to take away supper until a lovely picture was taken, and bada bing bada boom, we have one!

Mr. H’s breakfast yumminess.

Being the Betty Crocker mom that I am, I made yummy pancakes for breakfast. I always feel very proud of myself when I make pancakes instead of toast with peanut butter. So this was pancake morning. Being quite inspired, I even boiled a couple of eggs. Now I was pretty sure that would put me into some prize for cool mom.

So I’m flipping pancakes and handing them out to kids at the table. All the pancake fixings are on the table ready for use. Mr. H comes to me and asks for the ketchup. In my euphoric breakfast mind state, I say yes. But then I stop. Ketchup! Wait we are eating pancakes. Syrup + pancakes not ketchup + pancakes.

“Hey Mr. H, come show me”.

Please notice the ketchup in the middle of my nice pancake. He took his boiled eggs and cut them into little pieces. Then he cut his pancake in half. And of course, the eggs and ketchup went into the pancake. Like a big ole’ nasty breakfast sandwich.

After this picture he asked me, in his most serious voice, if I wanted a bite. Yeah…..I didn’t.

The new dresser

One of Mr. O’s summer projects was to sand, prime,and paint Miss P’s dresser. They would be her very favorite colors in the world; pink and purple (with sparkle as her 3rd favorite!). He just finished it last week, and it turned out really cute. Miss P was just in awe of the pink and purpleness that was now in her room.

So after church Sunday I sent the kids to put on play clothes. As I am making lunch Miss P calls me into her room. She shows me a purple shirt and a pink skirt. She asks if she can wear this outfit, because she will match her new shiny dresser. I look at her for a minute trying to decide a)can I laugh? b)is it okay to have ones only daughter dress like her furniture?

I figured why not? I told Mr. O that he should be totally flattered at life imitating his art work!

The Littles

I’m having a hard time finding time to blog. So here are some way cute pictures of Little G with his very best friend in the whole world, Little O. These two guys met each other when they were still in diapers, toddling around. They truly adore each other and have each other’s back against the terrible evils of big brothers and sisters. They are known as “the littles” when our families are together. The Littles get away with stuff that those big kids would never be able to. Like coming inside with the moms(when they should be outside), sleeping over at each others house, and getting a little extra juice. I’m glad that these two have each other(imagine the Toy Story song, ‘You Got a Friend in Me’ playing…). And seriously, could they be any cuter???
