Thank you so much to Monica, over at life on the hilltop for this honor. As you know I am new to the blogging world, so it means a lot to me that Monica thought enough of me (and my blog) to pass this award along to me. I have known Monica for a couple of years from a playgroup we were in when our boys were just babies. (times flies, they are now three) She moved away and we have kept in touch here and there and I am so excited to get to see her (in person along with her little guy) this Thanksgiving weekend. I can not wait. OK, now to pass the award along... I have thought about this all day and I just keep going back to the same lady. So, He & Me + 3 , will you please accept this token from me? I so enjoy reading your blog each day. You make me smile and laugh each day. I am in awe of you and all you do with three young'ns. Not to mention I love your blog name. (I am a huge Jon & Kate fan) I look forward to getting to know you and your family better through the blogging world. HUGS to you.
This is what CJ did with his clothes that he took off when getting ready for his bath. Earlier in the day I had dug this shelf out for PJ to hang in the bathroom. It was just sitting there, so I guess he thought that his clothes belonged on the pegs. AHHH...the mind of a three year old.

Today has been a lazy day. We got up this morning and went to church. We came home, I fixed lunch and had a list of things I wanted to get out and do, but I was so tired. So instead I laid down on the couch while hubby watch football and CJ played in his playroom and I fell asleep. I woke up three hours later!!! ??? WoW, I guess I need that. So clearly there is not much to blog about, so I decided to share with you a few pictures that always bring a smile to my face. Of course they are all of CJ, because once you have a child, you seldom take pictures of anything or anyone else.

I am starting to question why I even bother going there. I came across a new author that I wanted to check out, so off to our public library I went. As usual they do not have any of her books. They do not carry her at all. I had done my research before going to the library, she is a popular author. Our library is not small, it is a big library. No reason for them to not carry her. UGH! This is not the first time I have not been able to find an author or a book that I want. I usually end up trying to find them on ebay, bc we do not have a decent book store here either. On the up side, they do have a nice childrens floor with a lot of good books, dvds, cds, & games for the kids. As well as offering story time, sometimes with characters and activities. I guess it is a trade off and one I am OK with, I guess. It is more important for the kids to have the library as a resource then it is for me.

Well it is official, I have accomplished NOTHING today. I was not feeling too well yesterday and did not sleep too much, so today I have just bummed around and surfed the net. It feels good sometimes to just take a break from the everyday, but I feel so un-accomplished for the day. Tomorrow I will have to work twice as hard. I hope everyone is feeling as relaxed as I am. Have a nice, quiet saturday evening.

He looks at me with the sweetest face and says again "I'm helping you Mommy, look I wash dish".
If only he would continue to do this once he is old enough to, when Mommy does not have to re-wash everything.
*Note~he washed his sippy cup(s) with out taking the lids off. (too cute)

Our church is doing a small group study called 40 Days of Community. It was written by Rick Warren, Sr Pastor of Saddleback Church and author of A Purpose Driven Life. Our church has about 800-1000 members, so the small groups are made up of 4-8 adults. This small group setting allows you to get to know your fellow group members on a more personal level. Tonight is our second week into it. Last week was very enjoyable and gave us the chance to get to know a couple we met last year a little better. I am looking forward to the study and where it leads us as well as getting to know this other couple better and having a life long friendship with them. Do you take part in any Bible studies or small groups with in your church?

Boy am I glad to be here. We just got our power back this evening after losing it Sunday evening. We got hurricane strength winds and some rain from Hurricane Ike, all the way here in Ohio. WoW. Most of the town was shut down Monday and still several places, tuesday and today. All the city schools have been closed all week due to no electricity. There are still some homes with out power. Please keep them in your prayers as well as all those in Texas who have been through so much more. It was not so difficult for hubby and I, but our son (3yrs) did not understand why he could not bowl (on the Wii), watch cartoons or a dvd, or why his light would not come on in his room. No matter how many times I tried to explain it, he still would ask for all the above. Oh how much we do rely on electric. We were fortunate to save most of our food and to be able to do laundry, and eat at my Mom's. She has power through a different electric company and was only with out for a few hours. Thankfully they only live about five minutes from us. I am glad to be back online. And will have more tomorrow.

flower girl, best man, ring bearerAt the dinner toward the end we were all given a fortune cookie and asked to hold onto it and open them all together. When we did...we found the "fortunes" reading things like... Thanks for being a part of our special day, Love, bride, groom, son and baby or Congrats to all of our sons gparents, there is a new grandchild on the way or Our son is going to be a Big Brother etc. I thought this was such a cute idea. I am so thrilled to be an aunt again. I mean I only have seven nieces & nephews. (hahaha) This idea got me to thinking, how did you tell your family/friends you were expecting. Also did you a have a low key or high end wedding? I would love to hear your stories. Tomorrow I will tell you about my anything but ordinary wedding (or lack there of).

This Sunday, Sept. 7th, my son will be the ring bearer in my little sisters' wedding. We have a tux for him that my older sister bought for him about a year and a half ago and it now fits him really well. So we have been trying to find him dress shoes to go with it, since his dress shoes from last Christmas no longer fit, go figure. Finally today, after three weeks of looking, we went to Payless and low and behold we found a pair. YaY!!! They cost $18.00!!! ??? WHY? He is three!!! We will be lucky if he wears them more than once, possibly twice. So why the high cost? I was smart (or so I think) and bought them a little big, hoping he can wear them with his suit for Christmas Church service. (and of course Christmas pix)

Welcome to my first blog. Please be patient with me while I figure all of this out. And if you have any suggestions or tricks for me in this blogging world, please let me know. I am Kelly, wife to PJ and SAHM to 3 yr old CJ. I will celebrate my 30th Birthday next month. (woo~hoo) I can not wait!!! My husband and I have been attending a local church plant for the past two years and we absolutely love it and are becoming more involved all the time. I love to read and am currently reading His Needs, Her Needs with my husband and am waiting on my copy of To Love, Honor and Vacuum to arrive so that I can start it. I look forward to making some new friendships through this blog. I hope you enjoy my thoughts and stop back often. HUGS
