Tiller Tonight

“Mama? See that shadow over there? By my CD player? It looks like Darth Vader.” Geez. Way to creep me out, Tills. Wait till I am under my covers before you say stuff like that.

Come Sail Away

In case you were wondering why I have forsaken writing for video, Todd got an awesome Vado video camera for Father’s Day. I have taken it over. I LOVE it. Hence all the video of late. This song, though, has deeper meaning for me now. I heard it in the car when I went to […]

Tutu Redux

By popular demand, (okay, an aunt and a couple of Grandmas), here is the video I have so far of the Tills in a tutu. . . . This first one is Tiller and her class in the hallway at the rec center, getting some water. Kind of boring at first, but you get to […]

We took the kids for ice cream this afternoon. Oddly, Rollie wanted a Sprite instead. Todd and I decided we’d all share a bigass rice krispie treat, too. Tiller went for the ice cream (birthday cake) and a handful of rice krispie treat, too. Sometimes it was hard for her to decide which to bite […]

Morning Mayhem

So, I’m not getting a ton of my work done this morning, but boy are the kids having fun. Two dogs, two five-year-olds, and three, count them, three, three-year-olds, all over at the house playing. Funny how my kids are so much more well-behaved when they have friends over.
