I'd Like to Thank the Academy

It's an overdue post full of overdue thank yous.

Thank You Number One:
Sometime ago, I won something! Tracey from Just Another Mommy Blog hooked us up with two bottles of Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce. Greeley can't keep her hands off it.

Even though it looks kinda like she can't keep her hands of the bottles of margaritas. Thank you Tracey!
Thank You Number Two:
Saturday night, Uncle Michael came to visit. That can only mean kid tacos! Or, at least, that's what my kids think. As Michael was getting ready to leave on Monday, Atlee pointed out that he couldn't leave because he hadn't even rolled her into a taco yet. I believe the quote went something like, "But, Uncle Michael, if you don't roll me into a taco then I will have to live (big sigh) a tacoless life."

She was not destined to live a tacoless life.

Introducing the taquito. Thank you, Uncle Michael!

Thank You Number Three:
Did I mention Greeley's getting bigger? Here she is enjoying a bowl of Fruity Pebbles. One more step to toddler.
All sorts of big girl toddler-style food going on. You know what else is a step out of babyhood? When your parents decide your big enough to spend the night with someone else so they can go stay at a hotel without any kids.
That's what we did. My last thank you of this post is going to Amy. Amy, my brave friend. The friend who said, "Sure, I can take all three of your kids for the night- including that toddler that still nurses and sleeps next to you every night and has never been away from her Mommy. I'll add that to my two girls and barely even notice." Thank you to Amy for going without sleep so that I could enjoy a leisurely dinner at the Herr's Tavern. No one asked me to get them a glass of chocolate milk during dinner, and it was wonderful!

Thank you! And Amy's even still talking to me- pictures soon to prove it!

cute cute cute - I really need a girl! No Shea? No tortilla need for him?

And - wooooo hooo for getting away! Hopefully you didn't sleep the whole time. And so what if you did!

You are lucky to have Amy!

Shea was disgruntled that he missed the taco rolling because of school. He's certain school is the root of all evil, including missed cartoons and taco rolling.

You can always homeschool!

It's easier in the mornings since you don't have to fight with him about time and making it to the bus stop with breakfast, dressed properly, hair and teeth brushed and have lunch and homework in hand - all on time!
- that in itself sound exhausting!

Blake may be homeschooled!

I took your example and rolled Rufus into a Dog Taco, but it didn't work out. Ouch. Seriously - Sound like you had a nice mini vacation. That Herr's place looks mighty nice. Maybe you could take all the kids for Thanksgiving. No? =)

I made turkey clubs and french fries for my family last Thanksgiving. The kids just ate the bacon. The traditional foods don't interest them so much, but Shea does enjoy getting the day off from school.

Thanks JohnSmith, er Kesha, for that synopsis of part two. However, I believe the assignment was to review and summarize the entire article, including parts one and three. Therefore, I have to fail you.
