2 days in a row!! lol.
must be some kind of new record.

so this morning was a pita. i dont know why everyday its a struggle to get olivia ready for school. it starts with getting her dressed, then to get her hair brushed. then its time to eat her breakfast--which is like the worst ever!! its like i have to force feed her! ugh.
today is picture day at school, so of course we needed to do her hair all cute, which really didn't take long because all she requested were some braids. the hard part was getting her to finish her breakfast! and then maya refused to put on her shoes. i think someone is testing my patience today! lol.

i thought it would be fun to do the meme posted on the pub..the first part of the challenge is to post the last photo i took.. so here is that::

i dont really know if this counts..this is technically the last picture *i* took, but not the last picture on my camera. lol.
so here is my non-morning child olivia..she was feeling cutesy after putting on her scarf and hat..oh and she was wearing mittens but i couldnt get her to pose cute with them. and the picture is blurry. yep. i am not good at taking pics. lol.

Here's the Meme:
1) When was the last time you truly watched at a sunset?
i haven't ever really seen the sunset. i mean i've seen it go down..but not
like sit out and watch it on purpose. something to add to my life list i think!
2) What are you most obsessive about?
being on time!! i cannot stand being late for anything!
3) Last thing you ate?
do drinks count? i had a pumpkin spice frappuchino last night--yum!
4) Any plans for Halloween?
just trick or treating with the kiddos!
5) What kind of shampoo do you like?
3 words:: matrix sleek look.
the bizzzomb!!
6) What do you do with your change?
put it in my wallet..and it sits there till art steals it.
7) What do you usually do/eat at lunchtime?
i either have pb&j or a fab cup o noodles! while i eat
i usually read the mb or catch up on blogs.
8) When was the last time you called someone for help? What was it for?
dont remember.
9) If you could have one TOY for Christmas, what would it be?
hmm...thats a good question! i think i would want a new camera..
but i have no idea which kind since i am not camera savvy at all!
10) How many people have you currently not forgiven for something/do you hold a grudge against?
just 2. lol. i say just. but that is 2 too many. i need to work on that.

that was fun!
here are a couple of lo's i did yesterday with the october scrapologie kit..that kit is delish! this is the first time i've ever ordered a supplement..and man was it worth it!! i got soo many yummy goodies i feel like its my birthday!

um..ok nevermind! dang blogger freakin ate my my pics again. ugh.

time flies yo

so i was thinking that i just updated this like last week. lol. sense of time is not what it used to be. hehe.
so just a couple of updates::

so, my furnance is fixed, which is great. however, now that its warm in here i never want to go outside! i've been trying to take the kids to the park everday so they can enjoy it while they can..but really...i hate leaving the warmth.

my mom might be coming up after xmas which would be just fantastical. she wanted to be here for xmas..but thinking it might be better to wait till after the holiday rush. cant wait to see her..hug her..smell her hair. i know that sounds funny..but to me, smelling her hair is very calming. yep. i'm a dork. oh, and a momma's girl.

scrapping has slowed down a bit mojo came and made an appearance briefly and then left just as fast. lol. it seems i'm not one of those scrappers that can scrap when they have a lot on their mind. i've been stressed out lately about some stuff and its definitely not letting me scrap. which is a bummer. cuz i want to scrap. ya..and it might help if i had some photos that i really wanted to do, so, i hereby pledge to start taking some pics!

olivia is still loving school...but i on the other hand am not loving volunteering..and neither is maya. so, i'm not doing that anymore. at least, not on a regular basis. i was beginning to feel like it was just expected that i be there everyday, and well i didnt like that. plus maya was not liking it very much..she was getting really bored, plus i couldnt watch her and do all this stuff that the teacher needed. so, we are back to our mornings together and i really prefer it that way!

anyhoo...i think thats enough of an update! heres a few lo's to check out!

one of olivia makin faces in the tv reflection..
just too cute.

here is maya and my least favorite expression of
hers..anytime she doesnt get what she wants...
'that means you dont love me'.
so manipulative at such a young age!

i was going to share another one..but blogger ate it.
poop on the blogger!
