Life at our house (right now)

So we've lived in Memphis for 2 wks. now. You've seen our "Snow Day", the photos of my works of art, our first day of HomePreschool, and not much else.

This will be the post of the random things I've taken pictures of along the way.


The kids love their new room. And they are playing IN IT! (Until now, they always dragged their toys into the main living spaces to play.) Space is abundant in their new room (thanks to the bunk beds) and everything has it's own spot. We are trying to re-enforce the rule that before you get out a new toy, you must clean up the toy you are playing with. (It works most of the time.)


The other night, JR was reading to the kids in their room.


Instead of painting the kid's room, I ordered these (and these) removeable stickers. They are great (except that Naomi has already destroyed the 2nd G and H). I HIGHLY recommend them. They are a great alternative to painting. Plus, the quality is good.


Here are G and N playing together again. (I love to see this!)


The last 3 shots are of Naomi's pony-tail. She looks like such a big girl with her hair like this. I can't believe she's almost 2!!




And, speaking of almost being 2... has anyone out there ever tried THIS? I'm thinking, if it works, then I wouldn't have to buy another box of diapers in a few weeks ($35), so I'd actually save $10 and be DONE WITH DIAPERS! If anyone has experience with this... LET ME KNOW! :)

Have a great weekend!
(JR and I have a date to see "Avatar" tonight!!!)

haven't heard of 3 day potty training. I have come across 1 day potty training. Let me know how it goes. Abby was headed in the right direction but jumped back and I think we are going to have to give her a big push!

Heard Avatar is great but don't know much about it.

Love the ponytail!

Let me know if the 3-day-potty-training works. The concept is fascinating to me.

Yes, you'll have to blog about it's effectiveness. Jonas is almost 18 months ... I'm skeptical, of course! Good luck! I would LOVE for that to work!
