So I was all set to write a frustrated, grumpy post(’cause that’s the kind of mood I’m in these days) and I simply can’t with all the happy craziness going on around here.
Kitty is stalking Minnie Mouse’s disembodied head all around the kitchen; she’s incredibly serious about it. Do you think she knows about mice?
And she’s right. A swimsuit is all you really need for a trip to Powell.
In an effort to cheer me, Hans went to download the song “Bad Day” from itunes. Not only did he slip up and buy the Chipmunks version, he bought the ENTIRE Chipmunks album. So now Hans owes me two hours of weeding and Gabe is having a disco Chipmunks fest. And, honestly, who can be serious or sad with “Funkytown” playing in the background?
Xander was the first one out of bed Saturday for the annual Fill-the-Ark 5K. The starting line is two blocks from our house and the race raises money for Heifer International(a very cool charity) so it’s been a family tradition to run it every year. But as we gathered at the starting line, Xander, inevitably, was shoeless. As the gun went off, I ran home found 3 sizes too big clown shoes for him to wear.
9 minutes later, and with the addition of our little friend Isaac, we started on an empty racecourse. I cajoled and teased Xander and Isaac the whole way(as Isaac said, “You’re working me to death!”).
