I Don't Know What She's Talking About

Natalie at dinner: You know what? Two of us match. I'm just like Daddy and Annie's just like Mommy.

Us: Why?

Natalie: Because Daddy and I keep our face clean when we eat and Mommy and Annie are messy!

So I quickly grab a napkin and wipe the mayonnaise off my face from the hamburger I'm eating (in my defense, there was way too much mayonnaise on that burger). How is it a four-year-old can be that perceptive?

By the way, it is a joke on my side of the family how little James' uses his napkin any time we eat. It's always neatly folded on his knee before, during, and after a meal. I don't know how he does it. This in contrast to my 3 or 4 (okay, sometimes 5 or 6 if we're eating out) napkins crumpled up and strewn about my place setting in a haphazard manner. I've got a small mouth, really small.

Giveaway Winner

The winner of the lip gloss and clutch is ... Christine! My lovely Aunt in Salt Lake City. I'll be sending your gift in the next couple of days. Thanks to all who entered, and come back next month for another giveaway. I will be doing it on the third Tuesday of every month.

FYI, I use to generate a random number to decide who will win, it's completely impartial, although I think it fitting a mother of 9 won, she deserves a little lip gloss in her life =).

What I Found In Natalie's Room Upon Waking Up

A table set for Minnie Mouse. Complete with blankie (used as tablecloth), picture of Natalie in a Minnie dress, tomato, and bottle. Pretty dang cute.

I decided to start doing a Mary Kay giveaway every month. This month I'm giving away a lip gloss and clutch for your purse. The one pictured is called Beach Bronze and is really neutral. But I want you to decide which color you would like (provided I have it in my stock). So go check out my website and leave a comment telling me which shade of lip gloss you would like if you win the giveaway. I use Coral Rose pretty much everyday and I love how it's not sticky and stays on well, it also has a light vanilla scent. Just leave a comment on this post by midnight on Sunday and you're entered! I will announce the winner on Monday. Good luck!

First Day of School '09

I know most of your kids have already started school, some like a month ago, but it really was Natalie's first day of school today, I'm not even late on getting these pictures uploaded. She is in afternoon pre-school (12:15-3:45), so she had to wait all morning before we could finally go to school. She was a little hesitant, which surprised me, but I think overall she's really excited. I know I am! Hopefully the sisters will miss each other so much that there will be no more fighting...ha! Although the only one that did cry today was Annie. She was so sad, she cried all the way home. I'm not sure if she missed Natalie or just wanted to be part of all the action. Poor thing.
