sunday, a day of rest. ha.

Charlotte Claire and Camille are not only princesses, they are Monkey Rascals. They climbed up the bunkbed and into this baby carriage bassinet on top of the dresser. I didn't know this occurred until I found this picture on my camera, which is how I find out about alot of things. I did wonder how all the stuffed animals ended up on the floor.
Little Linnea (pronounced Lin ay a), the girl twin. Sitting in my chair. I had to scoop her up, of course.
Kathryn Grace holding Sebastian, the boy twin.
Four of the seven pizzas my boys made yesterday.
Aaron and Joseph, pizza makers.
Jonathan got a new remote control truck...and fluffy dog slippers from Abigail. His cousin Will wanted a turn.
Margaret on mandolin, having a good old time at Jon's party.
Jonny blows out the candles.

This break has lasted too long, the internet is going so slow. It forever to put up the pictures. Mirielle is baking the cookies for Jonathan's birthday at school tomorrow, and to send to Benjamin. I had one bit of Camille's, and one of Char's. I SO want to go have some dough. And a few cookies. But I shall not. I have had a handful of M&M's with some peanuts this afternoon, a few hours ago. So today I have had:

breakfast: whole oats with a spoonful of crunchy peanutbutter and lots of blueberries, no sugar.

Lunch: one piece of whole grain bread,(I usually don't eat bread), with crunchy peanutbutter and a small bit of rasberry jam.

snack: the peanuts and M&M's

snack: a vanilla lowfat sugar free yogurt with some toasted almonds on top.

phew. The house smells like cookies. I can't do this! Yes, I can. Yes, I can.

Dinner: I am going to head into the kitchen and make some homemade macaroni and cheese and some chicken, and some veggies.

Paul is out of town for the week. wah.

Do we really have to have dinner tonight? I don't feel like it.

You are not eating enough vegetables! No wonder why you are always hungry, and having too much fruit. fruit=sugar. You should have at least 5-6 servings of veggies per day!

Hi Megan. I don't usually eat rasberry jam, or bread for that matter. And I try to keep my hands off the M&M's, too. For dinner I had just green beans and chicken breast, and a taste of the yummy part of the bottom of the macaroni and cheese pan...I bake it, and it gets all chewy on the bottom. It was really hard not to just have a whole serving, but I resisted. I also passed on the leftover ice cream pie...but I totally agree with you, too much fruit is not good. Oh, and I forgot to mention the whole raw green pepper I had with my lunch.

I hate the "whats for dinner" question.

Cheryl, I liked that took me a few minutes to figure it out, why there was that ghostly fog in the pictures...
