Atticus had his third birthday today. It was a pirate party so I made a pirate ship cake.
Tons of fun, a treasure hunt, good times!

Well, this weekend was just one of those moments where you either go with the flow or drown trying to swim upstream.
We had it all planned out. Saturday at 9 am the old fridge was to go, at 10 the new one was to come. Then the rest of the weekend was supposed to be calm and free. Ha!
The fridge delivery people showed up two hours early. They grumbled about having to move the old one. In their grumbling they pulled out the cap on the water hose for the ice maker. So we got flooded. Then the guy showed up to get the old one. Plus while all this madness was happening, a contractor who we had gotten a bid from (bid only!!) showed up and started building. By the time I noticed all this, I was bordering on tears. Apparently I can only manage two chaotic problems involving no more than four strangers, two kids, and one great Dane prior to coffee and putting on a bra. (no seriously, I was in my pjs at 8 am when this started).
Gus apparently stole some food that upset his tummy cause today he got wicked sick. And AJ painted war paint on his face with sharpie.
If anyone needs me I'll be under my blankie. Indefinitely.

So here's the thing about our house. It came with a Catherine and Natasha. Each of the girls is three weeks older than one of the boys. It's been interesting to watch how both of these very different friendships has developed. One I expect will be a life long friendship while one will likely sputter out as the kids head in different directions.
Anyway, testing my new blogger program is causing me to digress. The picture was snapped during hurricane Irene movie time. Of course they watched Ponyo (Japanese movie about a big storm).
So I know it only seems like my blogging is sporadic. The real story is that my blogging software doesn't always work from my phone. And apparently I am one of those people who does everything from her phone. Sigh.
Anyway, school has started. Jake is in Ms. Gragg's first grade class. Bog changes from kinder so we shall see how that goes. AJ started MMP and loves it; that transition will be our easy one this year.
