What do you do with leftover marshmallows, apples, candy corn and chocolate chips?
Kids make the holidays so fun.

Someday I will be able to shower in peace and quiet without worrying what's going on in the other room.

Someday my garage will not smell like poopy diapers.

Someday any given room will stay clean for longer than 10 minutes.

Someday I will not have to put things up so high that I forget where they are.

Someday I will not have to swim through a sea of toys to get to my bed.

Someday I won't have to stand out in the cold at the bus stop.

Someday they'll out-grow toys.

Someday they won't always run to me for help.

Someday he won't need/want me to wait at the bus stop.

Someday I'll have a perfectly clean home because...

Someday they will leave.

Today I'll trip over the toys to go play with them.

Today I'll put off cleaning to be with them.

Today I'll try to remember "someday."

I miss them already.

We make our own fun

We opted out of the church trunk or treat and the elementary school festival to make our own, simple fun with friends: face paint, limbo, balloons and a movie. What more could a kid want?

Scary faces during the movie
Mummy (or daddy) wrap

Who can unwrap the fastest?
