Christmas in April

the biggest happening at our house this week is that garrett received "the best present in the whole wide world".  i put this in quotes b/c i know this is what he would say if he could say anything other than "drive, drive, drive".  our friend elizabeth found this for him at a yard sale--she knew that i had been looking for one.  i just wasn't sure if he would love it, but now i know it would have been worth twice the price!
seriously, he is obsessed! it is all he wants to do and all he talks about. it really is so he has a new best friend!  paul and i think it's just the funniest thing b/c he doesn't really "go" anywhere (although he can push it with his feet), he just want to get in and out a million times, drive the wheel, and talk about it!
it has bought me countless hours of entertainment--thank you elizabeth!!

5 things about me

okay, i was tagged to post 5 things about me and it seems like a good way to start:

1.  i think i'm pretty boring and average, so i don't know if i can think of 5 things worthy of sharing     (does that count as 1, or is it cheating:)
2.  i love the mornings....lately (b/c i feel like a medium size elephant) i have been exercising in          the a.m. , but usually it just involves coffee, e-mail, music, and muffins....peacefully.
3.  i hate things on my feet....lotion, dirt, grass, germs.  i always wear shoes, inside and out.
4.  i have a serious sweet tooth, which has been passed on to garrett. i love all cakes, muffins,     pies,      cookies, candy--nothing is too much!
5.  i am fairly "busy" in that i like to be doing and not sitting still.  i am not as bad as some                busybodies i know ( i will not call you out), but i like to be accomplishing tasks. strangely           things are never quite together at my house.... i read the other day that multitaskers are                actually less efficient??
