Our Five Ring Circus: On My Mind...

On My Mind...

...Lexie's Birthday is in 2 weeks.  I have yet to send out party invitations.  Oops.  If you're a friend or family member, you'll hear from me tomorrow or Saturday!  What can I say?  I have a lot on my mind!

...For her Birthday, my parents bought her the present she has been asking for since before Christmas.  That leaves us struggling to think of a good present for her!

...Lexie's not-quite-1-year-old DSi stopped working, so we just sent it to Nintendo to be repaired.  I'm really hoping they are able to repair it. If not, that will be her Birthday present!

...Dylan has a science fair coming up.  We have been searching for a good project for a few weeks now.  I think we finally decided on one, and it's EASY! 

...The big kids got awesome report cards again!  They are smart, hard-working, well-behaved little kidlets! 

...Lily had her 18 month checkup yesterday.  She was 23.6 lbs and 34.5 inches!  She is above the 95th percentile in height and between the 25th and 50th in weight.  She is working her way toward being a tall and skinny kid like her siblings!

...Grant is really enjoying his new job!  It seems like a good fit for him!

...Laundry detergent pods are my new BFF.  Seriously, I love those things!  Unfortunately, I still have to wash Lexie and Lily's laundry in a special detergent.

...I am so ready for Spring to arrive.  The snow and the cold are making me miserable.  I really should live in the South!

...Lily is such a mischievous little thing.  Her favorite activities are climbing on things, emptying containers of wipes, and getting into Vaseline.  Her recent projects have been covering our Great Dane in Vaseline and emptying an entire package of wipes into the toilet!  Every time I turn my back for one minute, she gets creative!


  1. I have to wash Kendall's clothes with the baby detergent. Hope lexie has a good party

  2. SO glad that the kids are doing well at home and school. And glad Grant is enjoying his job. HOpe you're having a great week, friend!

  3. So glad the new job is working out, that is so great. And laundry pods, I'll have to give it a try. Have a great weekend!

  4. Have a wonderful weekend! You are a busy Momma!!
    A Mom's work is never done!

  5. lots going on! Yay for great report cards. Jameson had his 18m check up yesterday (a month late) he's opposite of Lily - he's almost 100th percentile for weight (30lbs) and about 50th for height (I forget the measurement). Yay for healthy babes :)

  6. Sounds like you all have great plans ahead. Lol @ Lily covering your poor dog in Vaseline. Hope Lexie has a great party!!! Glad your husband is enjoying his new job. Hope you have a great weekend.

  7. Yay for smart kids, a growing & healthy Lily and a new job for Grant!!! xoxo

  8. OMG.. the pods are all I use! LOL. Why is it always so hard to think of birthday gifts?? I always have this problem. I guess it means we are beyond blessed. My mind here lately seems like it won't stop running.. I guess this comes with being a mommy. :)


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
