It seems a little odd to me that we are working on a nativity art project when it feels like 70 degrees outside... no complaints though!

Riley and I snuggled.
We sure have been lucky with warm weather this fall. I hope it continues!
107 days until the first day of Spring!

The boy loves the beach. He always wants to wear his boardshorts and "no shirt! and no socks! with my green shoes!" The poor boy is really struggling with winter. Aren't we all!
I made pink lemonade the other day and he drank it and exclaimed, "oooh, it tastes like summer!"
We were talking about the North Pole, and how cold it was. I asked him if he would want to live there and he said, "No, I like it warm. I like summer!"
We were getting ready to read "Good Night Moon" the other night before bed and Escher says, "Oh good, that's Elly Girl's favorite." and also "Are those three bears in chairs in time out?"
Escher and I were snuggling in his bed and I went to grab Blue Elly and he said "No, put her back. She is in time out. She didn't want to share with me."
We went to Wendy's one day for lunch and we were joking that Riley wanted a Baconator. So now, Escher says, "Riley says 'I'm hungry, give me a Baconator! I'm gonna fill my diaper later!'"

Naptime slowly turned into "rest time." "Rest time" has finally turned into "Quiet play time."
Even though "quiet play time" destroys any sort of organization in Escher's room, it was actually a great decision to let him play.
Instead of whining in his bed, or begging to watch a movie in his bed, he just plays. There are no distractions, no mom or dad or baby riley or tv.
I hear him talking to his animals, reading books and singing. It's pretty cute.
We have clean up races and Escher says "we both the winners mom! We clean up with teamwork!"

and I live a block from the beach in a new house that is hopefully rat, mold, squirrel family and water leak free.
My blessings are uncountable this year. I have so much to be thankful for!
Then a kid poops or pukes on me, there is crying and screaming at the same time, and I think "I can't believe this is my life..."

The newest member of our family. This is Elly Elly Elly.
We got Elly Elly Elly for Escher because we moved again. The giant stuffed elephant was waiting in Escher's new room when he got here.
When we asked him what he wanted to name it, he replied immediately, "Elly Elly Elly!"
