oh darn i rambled again

Well, I just fiddled around on my blog for way too long and have nothing to show for it.  I wanted to update some things.  I figured out how to change my little blurb on the side to state that I do in fact have 3 children now and am going on 10 years marriage.  That is as far as I got.  One of my pictures on the side is now gone, and I can't figure out how to get it there again.  I wanted to put a picture of Sage up to, but that may be asking too much.  The picture of Alli is at probably a year old and the one of James is going on 2 years old.  I'm so lost.  Plus all my profile is super old, and I KNOW people want to know my current hobbies and such!  Why did this have to change with no notice?  I even watched the cheesy video. 

 (you better believe we hit up Waterton yesterday with the other thousand people, it was beautiful)

Did you know my first year of college I took a computer programming class for some reason?  It was super nerdy of me, but in the end all that crap made sense and I did surprisingly well which is not like me with all the numbers and letters and codes and such.  I don't remember anything of it.  I remember one single thing from that class.  One day the instructor tripped over the cord to the overhead projector, yes overhead projector that is how long ago I was attended post secondary education, and we all laughed and laughed.  The rest of the class was a complete bust.  Someone would start with the giggles and then it would spread, it might have been me that started the giggles every time.  I have the giggles now remembering!

Wow, I got off topic, but I like the thought of that story being on the internet forever.  So what is the deal with this new blogger?  Why am I the only complaining about this?

James turned five.  I'll save a normal non random post for him.  Or I could just remember his last 3 or 4 birthdays and they are all the same.  Football and wiener roasts!  I'm sick at the thought of him being older.  It means someday I'm going to have a ten year old boy, and the only thing worse than having a ten year old boy is his ten year old friends!  For some reason I have never taken to the boys of that age.  I can tolerate 9 and I almost handle the 11's but 10's are the worst!  I'm sure my child won't be annoying at ALL at that age.


Ok, I'm not really sure what I'm writing about today.  I did find all the new blog stats info interesting.  I get over 50 hits a day on a regular basis.  What the heck, get commenting ya jerks, just kidding, kind of...

Well, we managed a few Mother's Day pics.  Last year we put the camera on timer and took one picture and it was good, not so much this year.  I really wanted them all in front of my perfectly blooming apple trees but the kids were scared of the loud buzz it was making.   I asked Derek for a 2 hour uninterrupted nap for mothers day.  After a delicious lunch made by him he gave me a gift.  My first question was if I still got the nap.  I might have taken the nap over the new lulu lemon jacket that day.  He is so fantastic, he gave me both!  Oh mother's day, I'm such a great mom. 



 This is what most of the pictures were like.  The top 3 below, I guess it's hard to get babies to look at the camera or something, also it appears I need some highlights in my hair.





 It only took me 7 minutes of clicking to upload my pictures to realize you now have to select them first.  I'm going to try really hard to remember that for next time to cut down on my blogging time.  Also, I didn't coordinate the kids clothes, but it sure looks like I did!  And the problem with pictures after church is who knows where Sage's headband is but I'm pretty sure she didn't make it to church that day with shoes so whatever.  Poor 3rd child.

I had no idea there was a new blogger. Your not making me want to come back to blog land with comments about how hard it is, I'm so useless with the computer!

Karen said...

I thought the uploading is better, I haven't done the side updates just yet, perhaps. and to anyone who doesn't get 10 year old boys come on ewww stinky all around, bad teeth, bad hair, think they are cool, talk like they are cool and my girls will never say "fart"

Your kids are SO cute! I love the last one of you and them.

I am having a really hard time with blogger too, so you're not the only one. Why do they have to change things???

Jaime said...

You inspire me to take some pictures with my kids, I don't think I've been in a picture with or without them is over a year! I always go on your blog to use it as my gateway to snoop as others!

I can't even figure out how to upload my photos. I don't have the patience to sit and fiddle around. Its probably so easy. But the new set up of blogger is not winning me over.

For mothers day I wanted to ask Brett for "work outs for a year without complaints of waking up early with kids while I am running/swimming/anything". But I didn't.

Love the last pic of you and your kids. cute cute cute.
