Short and Sweet

I just laid the kids down for naps  I know I say this all the time but it's one of my favorite times of the day!  It's my one chance to get the house caught back up and to have a little me time!
This afternoon during naptime I plan on writing a quick blog post (I am giving myself 20 minutes), sweep the living room and dining room floors, make a few headbands and catch up on Emma's baby book.  Oh, and eat a second bowl of cereal.  I can't remember the exact name of it (I'm sitting on the couch and am to lazy to get up to look)... but it's something like Oatmeal Cluster Cheerio Crunch. Or something like that.  It is WAY good!  Anyways, on we go.....

Girlfriend loves to prepare us our afternoon snacks. 
On this particular day she made us Frosting Sandwiches ;)

Perhaps it has to do with the fact that his name is a horse name.  I don't know.  But Colt is in LOVE with horses.  He talks about "sorses" all the time.  One of these days I'm going to count how many times he says "sorse" in a day.  My bet is well into the couple hundreds.  NOT even an exaggeration. 
Every time we get into the car he's craining his neck to look out the window to see if he can see a "sorse."  Poor kid doesn't see them very often seeing as we live in town. 
He was sitting on the floor looking through a magazine the other day and started screaming, "Sooooorse! Soooooooooorse!"  He found a little photograph of horses.  I tore it out and he carried it around for the next couple of days (until I threw it away because it was so disgusting). 

A current favorite playtime activity is pretending to go to sleep in laundry baskets:)

We spent the morning crafting and making pinecone turkeys.
I thought they turned out sweet :)


20 minutes is up!  Oh and the 20 reminds me... today I'm 20 weeks! 
Halfway through this pregnancy! It's really flying by! 
                                                                Have a great Thursday!
