A Day In My Life - 11/3/08

Another activity my friend Jodi encouraged her blog readers to do is document their day in pictures. We were running early this morning so, on the way to the bus stop, I thought it would be fun to grab the camera and give it a shot (pun intended.) I told Maya what I was going to do, and she thought it was a great idea (had she thought otherwise, she would not have cooperated, and this would not have turned out so well.) She asked me, "Is this your own creative idea, Mommy, or did someone tell you to do it?" How did she know to ask that?

So, click here to see a play-by-play of a day in my life as the mother of two young girls on Monday, November 3, 2008.

Maybe not 11.5 years, but how about 7 more days?

Well, it appears Someone read my last entry, because this last week we have been blessed with phenomenal weather here at the North Pole of the United States. It has been sunny and in the 60s. Maya didn't even have to wear a jacket over her Ariel costume to go Trick-or-Treating. We have been having record breaking heat, with tomorrow's anticipated high at 72 glorious degrees. Knowing we won't be seeing this again for another six months, we are savoring every moment. Mike took the kids outside today so I could finish up a project that began over the summer: painting the risers on the steps. It took me the better part of the afternoon to get both sets of stairs done, but they turned out great! Here are the before and after pictures:
