nothing of note

Have you seen that commercial for DanActive? The one where the woman is looking at her calender for August and it is pretty sparse, and she flips to September and every square is filled in? Well that is how I have been feeling lately! Our day to day busyness has kicked into high gear now that school is back in. The daily grind. So there honestly hasn't been anything too exciting going on. Not really. But if I neglect my blog for too long, I get emails from concerned family and friends. What can I say, I am popular! :) So even though I have no new pictures (yeah me, with no new pictures)and nothing really exciting to report...I thought I would throw this out there. It was cute. During the last few weeks of the summer, we were having pretty frequent power outtages. An hour in the morning and an hour in the afternoon. One day I was cleaning out old scrapbooking magazines and came across one called Scrapbook Shortcuts with quizzes and questions. So I decided to "interview" the kids with them.

Cute kids. And one thing more to share as you have probably fallen asleep through all this writing...Last night we had hoagies for dinner. I was slicing tomatoes for Ethan's and asked Connor if he wanted some. He looked at me and said, " I think you know how I feel about tomatoes." I totally cracked up. Too funny!

That is such a good idea. How fun

The Anglesey Family said...

Did you enjoy Jeff's Pirate Cove?

Marie said...

Tiff, we did enjoy it. Although Ethan and I got car sick on the way out there. The kids meals were pretty expensive was fine. We didn't have any bikers when we were there though!:) Just a ton of Japanese tourists, with their shorts waaaaay to low. I had to cover Harm's eyes at one point!

The Anglesey Family said...

We noticed their shorts too! I agree they were way to low! But I would give anything to have a petite little body like some of the Japanese women I saw!
