My leg hurts

"Mommy my leg hurts."

I start rubbing Jenna's leg. "That's because your legs are growing. They're getting bigger!"

"They've getting bigger? I'm gonna be a woman?"

Dear Jesus

Please let me dream about wolves and flowers tonight, okay? Thank you.

Jenna's bedtime prayer last night.

This morning Jenna told me that she had a dream that it was spring time and she was riding on a talking zebra. They went very fast.

Right now she's being adorable talking to herself in the bathroom. Apparently she's explaining how to get ready in the morning. I wish you could hear her, it's hilarious.

So now she's explaining how to get your coat and boots on and I hear her say

"If you bump your hand on your brain then you'll die."

The Life Pictorial

I started a new blog, which I know is ambitious since I don't even keep up with this one like I had wanted to, but I figure, there's nothing wrong with a little ambition. I actually have stuff to blog about but it's depressing so I'm gonna let it go for a bit :)

Here's to New Beginnings!

Happy 2008! A new year means a fresh start and a new chance to improve on those things that need improving on. I'm not a resolutions person really. I used to be but I find that for me resolutions set up expectations that I usually don't follow through with which leaves me feeling like a dejected failure. Yeah, I don't like feeling like that *lol*

I do appreciate what the new year represents though and try to use it as a springboard toward improvement in all areas of life. Today I spent the day cleaning and getting rid of junk. We have so much junk and so much stuff that we just don't need. I cleaned out an entire dresser of junk today. So now we have more room for clothes which is always good. I'm really going to start getting rid of junk and getting our place looking pretty and like home. Our home just doesn't reflect our personalities in any way (well except the lazy part) and I really want to change that.

I found this photo from one of my very favorite blogs The Black Apple and it just speaks to me. I love looking at her pictures and I just want to have her cute little apartment. This style is just so "me". I love the quirky antiques and fun colors in her home. So this is my project for the year and I hope to achieve it. Though I have a long way to go and limited funds so... I'll do my best :)

Anyway, I haven't shared my Christmas pictures yet I realize. I don't have many good ones and I don't think I'll ever get used to my camera which is really annoying. I spent so much money on my camera and I just can't use it properly, but whatever. So here are the pictures from Christmas Eve and morning.

And finally a picture of Marah in the tub :)

So now I have to go to the store to pick up some stuff for tomorrow. Be happy and stuff!

Is it just me?

Or does the song "Where Ev'rybody Knows Your Name" give you warm fuzzies when you hear it too? I don't know what it is about that song but everytime I hear it I just feel happy and warm inside. It really is just a great song... I don't know, maybe if I had never seen the show Cheers I might not feel the same way. Anyway, is there a song that makes you feel that way?
