Lots of Knots

Ok,I promised myself I would not complain anymore about my life, so that means I am NOT going to mention that at the park today a yellow jacket flew up my shorts. The little demon managed to sting me twice before it zipped happily away. I was very brave. I threw the kids in the car and immediately drove at warp speed to my mom's house. My mom is such a great mom. She immediately got out the ice and got on the internet to see how to put out the fire on my leg. So now I smell like Tea tree oil and baking soda. Thank you mom! You are the best!

I am also NOT going to mention that we had no chocolate in the house so I was forced to eat a brownie mix right out of the box. It was kind of dry, not that I am complaining.

The babies are wearing double diapers tonight because seeing bodily fluids that are NOT in a diaper at seven am really starts the day off great!

Now, a few random pictures...

Pigtails, sort of.

Stupid Yellow jacket!


  1. Oh. Mah. Word. Stung twice!?!?! Ouch! You totally deserve brownie batter for that one. The pics of the kidlets are so precious!

  2. Okay...facebook me your address...I am sending you chocolate. NO ONE should be without chocolate!

  3. I have no words for the craziness of your day.

  4. Catherine, seriously, you crack me up! I think you need to have your own cable show.

  5. You ate the brownie mix right out of the box? I officially think we're soulmates, and you are BRILLIANT. You need an extra set of hands? I'll come, with CHOCOLATE!

  6. I love reading your posts. I love seeing your beautiful kids. We recently got the addition of two little girls to our family too, but they are through the CPS system. Very different situation than yours, but I can *sort of* relate to some of the craziness.

  7. I love reading your blog. So, so good to see those baby girls improving so much.

  8. I have happened upon your blog and I love your cheeriness in all (including stupid yellow jackets). Thank you for putting a smile on my face today. I've got your family in my prayers for good things to come!

  9. I AM LOVING YOUR BLOG!! I thoroughly enjoy your sense of humor in the midst of what I know is a pretty rough time as you adjust to two new babes. Know that I continue to think of you and pray often for you. Hope to one day to get to hold those sweet kids in my arms!!
