Cheerio face painting, eating lizards and other fun stuff...

Yes, this is what I do when I'm bored....well, can one actually be bored while caring for 4 kids?? That's one hell of an oxymoron right there - bored SAHM. I gave the boys Cheerios for a snack today and they were taking so long eating that I was actually becoming bored so I started decorating Garrett's face with cheerios. He didn't seem to mind....


A couple weeks ago, Tim bought Cole some fake lizards....he left them out where the babies could get to them. I walked into the room and saw Landon with this hanging out of his mouth and it freaked me out. I started yelling for Cole....I don't know why...did I really think that my 3 yr old son would willingly pry a live lizard out of his little brother's mouth?? I don't know but I certainly wasn't going to. So turns out it was one of the fake lizards but doesn't it look SO real?

This is how Cole entertains himself...by wearing a diaper on his head. Doesn't he look happy about having his picture taken? He looks like he just got caught wearing Mommy's high heels or something....
I love this picture of Garrett. We've decided that he looks way cooler with a mohawk so this is his new look (sometimes...when he actually cooperates and sits still long enough for me to mess with what little hair he has). He loves these sunglasses that actually belong to Cole. Between the mohawk and the sunglasses, I think he looks like a pretty cool little dude.


How thrilled does Bella look in this pic as she's about to leave for preschool? It reminds me of the type of smile that you only see in school pictures. You know...the one where you're in 5th grade and you're wearing some dorky shirt your mom picked out for you and made you wear even though you cried "I look like a dork in this shirt"....the picture where no matter how hard you tried, you just couldn't get that perfect Heather Locklear feathered hair look....and you barely have time to sit down on the stool before the photographer says "smile" and clicks your pic???? Or maybe I'm the only that happened to? I don't know but I have a feeling that a lot of Bella's future school pics are gonna look like this...
So the boys are into climbing, everything and anything. I walked into the kitchen the other day to make their lunch and turned my back for maybe 1 minute...not even 1 minute...and when I looked back over at them, this is what I saw....
Don't they look so proud of themselves? They climbed up on the sofa and then found their way to the end table, where Cole had mistakenly thought he could leave his trains and train track ("so the babies won't mess with them"). I've been telling Cole "don't underestimate what these little guys can do"....but what do I know? I think it may be time to get rid of the end table...

Those are great pictures, I love the lizard that is so funny. I could totally see myself freaking over that one. I think I have pictures of each of my kids with "diaper hats" LOL Very adorable, your kids are getting so big.

I figure that if the children are alive when my husband gets home at the end of the day, I've done my job.
