"keep Walking ...but you won't knock down our wall ......"

Yes spring is springing rather slow in vermont as it tends to do, I think we are on the start of a serious warm up. I'm not saying it won't snow again ....... or that we are done with winter weather, after all, this IS New England. :D So, we have 30 dregee mornings lately, and near 50s a couple times on sunny days, and you what all that means? No more excuses to not get out and WALK. I'm not talking a stroll in the park here, im talking about a mean, "gotta walk off theses hips" work out type walk. The kid we get up before 5am to start. The kinds we do three times a week rain, snow or headaches!
So yeah, im gonna be hurtin' for a couple days, but it's a good hurt o.-

Oh and here are my kids this morning. Grant has declared
"I'm stying in my pajamas ALLLLL daaaaaaay!"

and Samantha once again proves that "Monster's Inc." was written with my offspring in mind. :)

I woke up next to a monkey....

No i'm not calling my hubby a monkey, when i rolled over to check the clock after he'd left for work, this is what i came eye to eye with. Only in my house!

too bad the "grant george" isn't quite so comfy.

my son measure sizes by people ...big=daddy ..medium = mommy small=grant ..tiny= samantha
so the little george is "Grant george" and the big one is "Daddy George" and must therefore sleep with daddy :P Yay ... a bear and a monkey in our bed always swore i wouldnt let my kids sleep in our bed at night ...... but never thought about their stuffed animals :P

so in other news ...hmmm .. i finished my cousins gift, but must get it in the mail. its Frigid in the north this week. This is probably somehow to blame for Sam's ear infection and my pneumonia :P I don't like inhalers, they make me shaky, "like a paint shaker" my hubby says :P
Today we are headed over to Lebanon NH for Grant's post op check. Should be simple, but it's an hour away :P so we have to make the best of it, shop in a big walmart, visit daddy at work, and of course McDonald's! :)
so, since we must leave soon, i must end this post, OH yeah, it seems the populous of 97three listeners has FINALLY given me the credit due me :) I do believe im now their FAVORITE DJ :)
My daughter is dancing to the sound of my fast and furious 2 fingered keyboard dance. XD i love my kids heehehee
