Create in me a Clean Heart

Just another weblog

If you came to my house… July 1, 2008

Thanks to a little linky love from Stephanie here goes!

You would see:

Toys Toys Everywhere! We have way too many toys!

We’d probably feed you:

Usually company meals are either Lasagna or Pot Roast with Potatoes and Carrots

And offer you this to drink:

Let’s see…we have iced green tea, coffee, diet Coke and Tab, Watered down juice (75% watered), water, soy milk and chocolate milk

We’d undoubtedly ask if you’d read:

Any good adoption books, children’s books, any good mysteries or any good cookbooks (I love to read them)

We’d want to play this music for you:

Sammy would choose The Wiggles or The Doodlebops, I would play Chris Tomlin or Micheal Popenhagen

We’d want to tell you the latest about:

Something the kids have done! I’m one of those annoying people who talk too much about how cute their kids are.

We’d probably suggest a game of:

Scrabble, Dutch Blitz or Pac Man (we have an upright arcade version of Pac Man from the 80’s)

We might show off:

Our gorgeous boys!

We might get on the computer and show you:

Kevin has a million things that he likes to show on the computer…trust me don’t get him started or you will be here for a week!

If it was a long enough visit, we might watch:

Pride and Prejudice or as I like to call it “Mr. Darcy” … I love the A & E version with Colin Firth *swoon*

What would a visit to your house be like?

Want to play along? Let me know if you do this – I’d love to come read it! In the meantime, I’m going to tag:

Anyone who wants to do it…I am so late in doing this that I am not sure who has already done it!

Okay, so another week got away from me! I never did come back and post. It’s been kinda crazy around here. Doctor visits, VBS prep, Toddler chasing, playing phone tag with an electrician, baby stuff…
We have also been talking about projects. You know the kind, things that you need/want to do to your home but they will take longer than a weekend. Right now Kevin is finishing fencing in our yard. Sam has a habit of running down the driveway and laughing when we tell him to stop or we chase him down. We live on a busy street. Not to mention that I don’t want him playing in the driveway. SO we are finishing the fence. I don’t know why the previous owners tore out the fence, it is only the section of fence that goes from the house to the garage. Anyway, that should be done by the end of the weekend.

For Father’s day we are going to my sister’s house and having a cookout and swimming. Sam should enjoy it, he loves swimming. Her pool is 3ft at the shallow end and 8 ft at the deep end. Sam usually just plays on the steps. He gets his life jacket on and Kevin and I take turns sitting on the steps with him. Once in a while he will get brave and want to be in the deeper water but not very often. It should be a fun day.

Have you ever had one of those days where you felt like you had a lot to say but nothing will come out?  That is how I feel today.  I have been here several times but nothing is coming out.  So I guess I will wait until tomorrow for a full post.  I have been SUPER busy lately with vacation catch up and appointments.  I haven’t had a lot of time for blogging or even staying in touch with friends.  Sorry if I have been absent.  I miss you!
