This is very exciting. This is my first post, ever, on my blog. Kind of feel like it deserves some sort of little celebration – an ice cream cake? A little balloon? I could go for that. But, the little kidlings are soundly sleeping (since 6:30, hehehe:) glorious thing when they can’t tell time yet and it gets dark out early), and the hubby is out – no one to par-tay with anyway! Who are we kidding – I probably wouldn’t eat the darn cake. Little Katie factoid is that I really don’t “do” dairy. I could be tempted by my mama’s to die for homemade ice cream cake. She puts ANY ice cream cake on the face of this earth to shame. I kid you not, like a little piece of heaven on earth every time she makes it.
Moving on! Let me set the tone for this little blogger of mine…kind of gonna be a “day in the life” sorta deal, figuring it out as I go….talking nonsense and sharing my little life with all of you peeps out there. I’m telling you – kind of a crazy life in my little corner of the world. Right now I exist in the stay-at-home-mom to three under 5, laundry do-er, personal chef, house-maid, jungle gym, meal planner, get a run in whenever possibl-er kind of blah blahbutty blah wonderful world! Sidenote – I do think I gave birth to monkeys the way they climb ALL OVER my house and are CRAZY from top to bottom, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! Keeps life super fun and interesting! I will share what goes on in my day – the silliness, the seriousness, the craziness, the loveliness of it all. From how I fit in the running, to cooking, to taxi-ing those little ones all over creation to make sure they are well rounded little delightful people. I rest secure in the knowledge that God in heaven loves me and my family, and I try to live my days as an example of his beautiful love for me. Couldn’t get through my days without HIM. Above all that I do, it is important that my children are raised knowing that Jesus lives in their precious little hearts.
Speaking of Jesus – with Christmas upon us – I am a procrastinator at heart and I must go do my last minute online shopping to ensure Christmas delivery! Can’t have those little nuggets of mine disappointed when Santa doesn’t bring them what they asked for. Actually, #1 wanted an iTouch for Christmas – really?!?! In what world does she live???? and #2 just chimes in with “yeah, we want an iTouch”…..iTouch at 5, cellphone at 6…don’t think so. I told her Santa wasn’t bringing electronics this year because he was afraid her imagination would disappear. She didn’t ask for it again:)
much love…nighty night!
