{pretty, happy, funny, real}

I've been away from it for so long that I think I've lost the hang of blogging.  I'll think of a million different things to write during the day, and by the time I'm ready to blog they have all left my head. 

Oh well, I think that's a little bit of an occupational hazard.  I can only keep a certain amount of information active in my brain at one time, and I think keeping the kids alive may trump blogging.  Just this once.

Or maybe blogging is like anything else in life in that it requires practice, practice, practice.  The less I write, the more I fall out of the habit of writing, and soon I'm not writing at all.

And that is why I am thankful for things like {pretty, happy, funny, real}.  It gives me a graceful re-entry to my blog!

Bun and Mopsy went as a matched set for Halloween.  Peter Pan and his little pixie friend Tinkerbell were the hit of the library's preschool story time.


It doesn't get much more real than a pre-Halloween snowfall that left thousands in our area without power.  I like the winter, but I like it even better when it starts after Thanksgiving.


Actually, this baby is like a really fancy stop-gap measure until we can go whole hog into an iMac for the family. Since I only do goof-off computer stuff, like blogging and Facebook and email, I am setting up this iPad as a central command for myself.  The kids are totally jealous.


Fiver was Super Mario for Halloween.  I find the mustache alone to be incredibly entertaining.


I love Bun's face in this picture.  It's like he can see Capt. Hook off the starboard bow!


Cinderella Sally, just waiting on the Fairy Godmother.  Have pumpkin, will travel.


  1. Oh my goodness. I cannot believe the snow already.... I love the costumes. Visiting today from Like Mother, Like Daughter. :)

  2. The mustache is HILARIOUS! But what, no gratuitous Mae picture?

  3. Great pics! Good to hear from you. ;-)

  4. Sally is entirely too big! When did that happen?! I am also jealous of the iPad. Travis just got the new iPhone today, making mine look lame and outdated. ;)

  5. We had a Mario too! The mustache is a real bear when it rips off, no? After it went to school for the day, I discreetly filed it in the trash!

  6. A very graceful reentry my friend. Love the pictures and am very jealous of your new gadget- enjoy it :)

  7. Mopsy is a little girl now! When did that happen?!? Oh, goodness, your children are so precious and beautiful!

    Welcome back! =)


Go ahead and say it. You know you want to.
