Happy Belated Mother's Day to all the mothers and women caretakers out there!
You are all special and amazing!
Our biggest problem as of late, is getting completely undressed in our cribs. I should have censored this photo, but you have to see the whole picture to really get it. I surprised her and the face is priceless. (so is Ashleigh's in the background)
Oh the joys of toddlers. Three at once. Yippy skippy. :)
- getting 'cozy' under mommy's blanket
- eating messy messy pasta (jordy with a fork, of course)
- riding our rocking animals: zoe the zebra (not pictured), betty the butterfly and stanly the snail
- wearing hats--any and all kinds.... EXCEPT for the ones mommy wants us to wear.
- playing on daddy's strong legs; especially when he lifts us in the air----all at the same time!
(Only a few thousand mishaps along the way. I made the biggest mess I've EVER made while doing this cake. And that's truly saying something.
The Olympic Motto is "Citius, Altius, Fortius" which means "Swifter, Higher, Stronger".
The Olympic flag was first used in Antwerp in 1920, the five rings appear in the center of a white field.
The Olympic flame symbolizes the link between the ancient and modern games. By tradition the flame is carried by torch overland from Greece (except when it needs to travel over water) by a relay of athletes/people from participating countries. The games begin when the torch is used to light the flame signalling the beginning of competition.
I normally kill everything (including the herb garden I planted at the same time as the tomatoes.)
I'm actually amazed that none of my children have died while in my care...
So, it is astonishing to me that I actually have a garden with alive and edible things!!
I didn't mean it to come accross like I was the best thing since.... fertilizer or something. My thumb is so black. So...that's it. It just bothered me everytime I saw it.
Thanks for listening :D (or reading, rather)
Update: I must give credit where credit is due, and the probable reason why my plants are still alive is because my husband waters them no less than 80% of the time. (I do remind him from time to time, but for the most part, he is right on top of it.) So, truly, HE is the one with live, edible tomatoes. He doesn't even like them (that's putting it nicely) but he knows I do and that's super nice. Everything in my life is a big collaboration with someone, somehow. I was wrong in not mentioning it specifically! So THANK YOU, DEAR! :)
I made really good bruschetta one day and yesterday I made the best guacamole (even if I do say so myself) using a green zebra tomato! And, lucky me, my husband hates avacados. :D I ate it all yesterday with the best chip-match. I just grabbed them in the store because I thought they'd go well with guac. And boy, do they! Here's a pic:So, if you need chips to go with your guac, these are awesome!! (if you are reading this, Kettle Brand Chips, please send me some more!!) :D
