I'm really terrible at clever titles

I've had a few things on my mind to blog about, but nothing ever warranted a post all to itself. I saved it all up for one fantastic (semi-boring) post. Aren't you excited?

We celebrated Roger's 32nd birthday on Monday. Happy Birthday old man.





Ashby starts soccer this week again and we are all very excited, even Avery. Ain't she so pretty?



On Sunday during church, Avery told Roger that her foot was bored. It was awesome. Upon further questioning, we figured out she probably meant it was asleep. We told her you say asleep instead of bored and she thought that was the most ridiculous thing she had ever heard. She also was cold the other night and a good way to fix it is footy pajamas and slippers right?




I was getting Ashby ready for school yesterday and could hear the baby kicking the coffee table. He was fussing a bit so I came in the living room to help him and couldn't find him. This is where he was, all the way under the coffee table. He does have other clothes, I promise.


When the new year came, I found myself really cheap and wouldn't spend the $5 for a new desk calendar, so I improvised. I bought this magnet board at Ikea for $2 a while ago. I already had the circle magnets and the tape. I only had to buy a package of strip magnets for $.70. I color coded magnets for the girls' activities and I can write on the board with a dry erase marker as well. I thought it turned out alright. It will do the job anyway. Don't I take such great pictures?

What a great post! Just chalk full of wonderful little tid-bits. I think your magnet board is genius. Even if I DID have money to spend on a fancy, new one I think I might still do what you did. It's perfect!
And Luke under the coffee table - just be glad your couch is low. My FR couch has a high bottom under the skirt and I have, several times, found babies stuck half way under - sometimes the head is under and the rest is sticking out, sometimes the butt is under and the head is sticking out. Either way - the kid is never happy about it. So the coffee table seems like a great place to roll under!

Love the calendar! I also love that in Luke's picture one of his socks is off. This is Abi. If I don't put shoes on, which I never do, the socks last a total of 2 to 4 seconds. Tell Rog happy birthday! Can't wait to see you!
