A Day in the Life(Pictorial Version)

A healthy and wholesome breakfast of chocolate milk and toast

Clayton got new jammies.  I was detagging.

I have no clue what he's doing but it looked cute.

Practice makes progress, because I am a long way from perfect.

Gag!!!  This was load 1 out of 6.

I also had lunch with a friend today, but I forgot to take my camera.  You would have loved a picture of my Taco Salad I'm sure.

Coupons.  And you can see a little boy reading a book about tractors in the background.

Dinner.  This was a totally random meal I found by accident that was fantastic.  They were called Taco Cups but Chad and I renamed them Mexican Cupcakes.  I think that makes them even more strange.

Emma(or Marley) did this to my favorite flip flops.  I only wore them EVERY SINGLE DAY!  And yes they were in the closet with the door shut.  I don't know how she got them, but she did.

I spent a lot of my day here clicking away getting ready for Saturday.  And a 1 to 2 hour presentation on genetics I get to give in 2 weeks.  Seriously??  What am I going to say for 2 hours about genetics?  But it's a great opportunity to share our story about God's Grace and providence to a completely secular group.
And finally a lengthy game of Monopoly with the hubs.  He won because I ran out of money and refused to sell off any property.  And it was after midnight.  I was tired.

That was our day.  There was so much more that happens in any given day.  

But the best moment of the day was when Chad was giving Clayton his bath.  I was again at the computer working on my speeches for Saturday.  From our table you can see in Clayton's room and our bathroom.  And since our house is tiny you can hear everything from everywhere.  Totally out of the blue I hear "Your bath water is not hot, it just feels that way."  I thought I would fall out of my chair.  In fact it's funny right now.  And then as if this is completely normal conversation in our house I hear "Stop drinking your bath water.  I said stop.  Spit it out now."  I guess this is completely normal conversation with a 2 year old.

Ok so how totally unstable am I but the one with Clayton reading the tractor book in the background made me tear up a little. He is such a big boy!

lol that exact same conversation can be heard at any given bath time at our house so dont feel bad... and you should never put up pictures of totally random meals (that sound kinda yummy) without recipes!!!! i'm always looking for new recipes to try!

Yes, you must share the new recipe with the rest of the world! I love to try new things and that sounds like something my Hubs and i would eat. :o) Great way to post. I haven't done that in a while, I may do it soon. Well when I get time. As I'm sure my readers have noticed I don't get to blog as often as I would like to hear lately. Your post made me smile today.
