December 10 on 10: Stephanie

6am: reading scriptures by Christmas-tree light. I love to sleep in, but I love being up before the kids even more.

7am: Cleaning "command central" in order to procrastinate my workout. 

8am: moving Mary and Joseph one day closer to the stable.

9am: The kids and I took a "shower bath" where I shower and they bathe at my feet. Then they play a little longer while I finish getting ready, it's a great system.

10am: Preschool was at my house today. We do more than play with toys, I promise, and I wish I would have taken a picture during a cute activity instead!

11am: He's been asking me to read this Ninjago book since he woke up and now that the preschool kids are gone, I finally said yes.

noon: A fun math game.
I like the way June plays (just eating the chocolate chips straight from the bowl)

1pm: A walk before nap time, which took about 20 minutes even though all we did was walk about 8 houses down and back. Pokey little puppies.

2pm: We have a preschool Christmas party tomorrow night, I'm prepping the craft.

3pm: I for sure should be getting stuff done, but whoops, I'm watching SNL skits instead.

4pm: (11th hour?) texting back and forth with Rob:

6AM//We have a pretty systematic routine every morning. Setting out clothes for Jachen while he takes a shower.

Making Jachen's food for the day.

9AM//After taking Jachen to the bus, I slept for an hour and a half then got up, made a protein shake and headed to the gym. Baby belly.

10-11AM//Getting my new glasses sized then headed to Winco.

Sometime after 11...maybe noon//home to unload the car in the rain. So exciting to finally have La Croix again, Winco has the best price.

230PM-530//At my babysitting job. Olivia 3, Stella 1

Both girls fell asleep. I love days like this. Stella sleeps the best when I hold her...I used to try and get her to sleep in her crib, but gave up, would rather have her sleep as long as she needs. I need. :)

Driving home in traffic.

640PM-//After dinner Jachen went to his YM activity. I am finishing off the delicious Lindt dark chocolate peppermint chocolates while blogging while watching 7th Heaven...I just started watching this show and I am kinda addicted. ha.

November 10 on 10: Lisa

9:00 - breakfast. Today's menu mini banana/oatmeal/yogurt muffins and sliced fruit. Clancy was excited about it. 

Zachary on the other hand...

10:00 - the flooring installers came and started tearing out the floor we put in right after we moved. It had started to delaminate in several places around our house so after a hard fought battle they are replacing it at no cost to us. 

Needless to say, the rest of the day was very noisy - as will be the rest of the week. Ugh!

11:00 - Clancy likes to wrestle with Colin and in this case he may actually be winning. 

12:00 - Colin using his tools to help the flooring guys. 

1:00 - lunch, leftover taco soup. I'm avoiding dirtying any unnecessary dishes. 

2:00 - Clancy finally became too exhausted to fight sleep any longer. The banging didn't even bother him as I moved him upstairs to his own bed. 

2:30 - Fort building aka throwing to couch cushions around the family room. 

3:00 - in some fluke, all three boys fell asleep at the same time. I took the chance to get a bit of Gospel study in. 

3:10 - fluke only lasted about 10 minutes until Zachary woke up and needed to be with me. He then proceeded to burrow into the blanket and fall asleep briefly at the edge of my bed. This also was short lived. 

4:00 - Sissy's home from school!!!

6:00 - dinner. On the menu is grilled cheese. Clancy was also a big fan.

November 10 on 10: Stephanie

8am: working out. My little laptop with the workout video on my huge fireplace, my children as my audience. We moms do what we can!

9am: I finally got around to eating breakfast, but by this time June decided she was ready for second breakfast and demanded some of my oatmeal with blueberries. I've come to expect this, though, so I don't mind sharing.

10am: Hanging out with my girl while Henry is at preschool. At this age she plays independently (unlike her brother who asks me to play all day long) so she's easily ignored. I make myself use some of this time while he's at school to spend time with her and, of course, it always ends up being a contender for my favorite part of the day.

11am: Some hugs while waiting for a long while in Costco's return line.

noon: I watch her eat it and can't figure out why yogurt on the menu always ends up looking like this. (she's saying "eeee" aka "cheese")

1pm: I'm enjoying watching June try to put her socks on.

2pm: cleaning time while June is napping and Henry is in his daily "quiet time." What do you think about my cool shot of spraying the mirror? By the way, a mirror makes a horrible black splash. 

3pm: Monday is one of the days he gets computer time after his quiet time. I haven't admitted to him that I like his computer time even more than he does.

4pm: the kids were excited to get cards in the mail from their cousins!

6pm: Rob playing the guitar for our Family Night opening song.
