Massive PFMP Dump

I haven't done one of these in FOREVER. Enjoy the randomness. Also, these pictures are from as far back as September. Yikes!
I am married to one extremely attractive man. He's also really funny. And an amazing father. And a wonderful provider. Blessed, blessed, blessed.

Anna got beaned in the face with a hula hoop during PE at school. Months later and she still has a slight scar from it. 
 The face that only every person who has ever met her could love.
 Egads, I miss these sweet moments already. She will only nap in bed now.
 Ever wonder what my spinning wheel looks like?
 Boys sure do make things interesting.
 A teeny tiny pair of mittens for the Christmas Tree.
 A close up of the weapons/accoutrements we made for the kids' Halloween costumes.
 Ha! Good Story that demonstrates the kind of person I really am. Miles has to be picked up between 3:15 and 3:30, but often there is a long car line that prohibits getting through said line anytime before 3:35. On one particular day, I lost track of time and was late. I admit it. I showed up at the school at 3:38. They had already removed him from the pickup line (even though there were still other parents in line to pick up their kids) and taken him into a classroom to wait for me. I received a note from the teacher that stated I would have to pay $8 ($1/minute) the very next day before he would be allowed back at class. So, I did. I paid it in pennies, nickels and dimes. Reminiscent of the scene in Confessions of a Shopaholic where she pays the collections guy with pennies "giving him exactly what he asked for, but in the most inconvenient way possible."
He he.... I'm a jerk!
 We went to dinner at the Macaroni Grill. We tip well. I figure we're paying extra for cleaning up the many spilled cups and food on the floor. Go us.
 This is how we spent our Thanksgiving Day. Fishing at a local pond/lake. We caught a turtle. Thus ended our fishing.
 These are mittens that I made for my mother for Christmas. And then sent them off to her before I remembered to take a proper picture. They were fabulous and I'm JUST now seeing an error... CURSES.
 When I was growing up, we made these Candy Trains every year. This year I hosted a candy train making party for a bunch of girlfriends. It was all around good times.
 I grew these turnips in my garden. I feel like a superhero. Recently, I planted our summer garden... Zucchini, Green Beans, Tomatoes, Cilantro, and Basil. My mouth is already watering.

Lucas loves trains. ALOT. We set up a huge track at least a couple of times/week. It will keep him fairly well occupied for an hour or so. 

Lucas sleeping = Mom wins.

 Anna just prior to her endoscopy. She loved the loopy drugs they gave her so much that she asked for them several more times in the next couple of days. I was getting worried.
 Again, behold. I make carrots.
Anna made this fancy robot for school. She demanded I post a picture of it to Facebook. I did as she commanded. Never disobey. Never.
 My parents sent this Dr. Seussian Parrot for Libby for Christmas, along with the coordinating book Oh Say Can You Say. Libby has staked her claim. It is her very favorite thing ever. She likes to suck on it while she falls asleep. This makes it stink. Badly. "The Green Guy" as he's known around these parts, has to be washed at least every week.
So, I knit Matt his sweater vest. I couldn't love it more. It turned out exactly as I had envisioned, which almost never happens. Maybe I'll post some better pictures of it... that is, if I can convince Matt to put it back on in the 80+ degree weather we've got.

So, really, Spring Break wrap up tomorrow.

Those home grown vegetables are very impressive.

Love the veggies and am jealous of your growing season!
The story with the pennies is CLASSIC! Picking up kids from school is so rough, especially when there is a super long line. Been there, done that. But I've never heard of a school charging parents $1 for every minute!
