a little taste of vacation

Wow. A little taste of my iPhone photo wizardry (because sometimes it is OK to toot your own horn):

The setting? Coney Island Beach. Where we have here captured... the sand and surf, my own footprints, Lili's cute bare wet sandy feet, some mussel shells and one of the many jellyfish(!) that had been washed up onto the shoreline. This picture really truly is worth a thousand words.

In addition to some more free time (hello? Mira? Can you please sleep more?), there are some things on my wish list...

I would like my DVR back.

If not the DVR, then a VCR upstairs.

Oh and while we're at it, we need a new DVD player.

Oh yeah and the whole Alias series, on DVD.

Okay and I can be productive too so I would love to have a serger.
So I can do fun things like this.

Today is the Day

we leave Lili's door open at night

Mira asked me to read her a book (over and over again!)

we acquire another unicycle

I took care of 5 kids at once, by myself (granted, only for about 10 minutes but still)

that Mira went a whole day without baby-food (she ate real person food all day!)


And hopefully, tonight is the night that we get at least 8 hours of sleep. In a row. Hey, a mama can dream (pun intended).

a little smile

It's discovering little scenes like this - knowing they were made by Lili - that bring a little smile to my face.

What in the world do you think that Penguin was thinking? And the passed out cat on the floor? Must have been soooome party!

Squashed time

Crispness has hit the air, and we harvested some pumpkins and winter squash from our rapidly deteriorating vines. I don't know why, but this year and last our plants became big and beautiful, and then succumbed to some kind of sickness and died off before they could become proliferous. So, whereas my parents get 5+ squash per plant, we got maybe .5 per plant. Oh well, something is better than nothing!

The Best Compliment

The best compliment is when people tell you that you have beautiful children, and then tell you that they look just like you.

thanks to Jen P for taking these beautiful pictures
