a trifecta of blog posts

                   can I please have a little shout for my 3 day in a row blogging spree?!
                                                                      welcome to
    a day in the life of the James fam.........
(brace yourself, it's edge of the seat stuff, you guys)

getting everyone out of the house before 9am
requires some serious diet coke
we're in 'summer mode' after all....

in hindsight the caffeine was prob not needed
to stay awake for a preschool t-ball game
hilarious of all hilariousness
Char located the graham crackers in my purse
in the first 2 seconds of the game.
It made the next 44.92 minutes seem long
especially when she was not amused by the singing book I brought along
(good thing, cause neither was the lady in front of me...)
garage sale find
i know, i know
naptime for the kiddos = blogging time for me
ahhh, Jessica from the Johnson fam
she's one kool kat
it's pretty sweet when your mom lets you nap in her bed
or at least Matthias, all cuddled in McQueen blanketness, thinks so
---a seriousWii competition---
between Jon and his friend.
who's a girl.  but not his girlfriend.
she's just a girl who's a friend.
okay?  okay.
(I've gotten the speech a couple times now....
I think it's memorized and all set for the teen years.)
 and to cool off in this extreme 70 degree WI heat
water balloons

(linking up HERE today.  go check it out!)
have a SUPER day, all!life rearranged


  1. This post cracked me up. I can just hear the girl "friend only" speech coming out of your son's mouth. Haha!

  2. I am laughing so hard with the Kool Kat comment, that was krazy funny! Hope Jessica can stand reading it :) I used to be addicted to Diet Coke the way most are addicted to coffee. And $2 is a steal!!! Good for you!!!!

  3. 3 days in a row!!! Whoot, Whoot!
    Summer goodness love it.
    A girl that's a friend but not a girlfriend speech, yes, it does work in the teenage years... so far. ;) (well after the first girlfriend didn't work out after 1 month and then *we* decided maybe just girls that are friends are a better route to go...)

  4. Just having a girl friend is definetly the way to go -hopefully it stays that way for awile. The house for $2 -great deal -u must have been there when they first opened!!1 Your Diet Coke to u is my Dr. Pepper to me-definetly gets u moving in the morning. Have a great weekend!!!

  5. Oh you know I love garage sale deals! How awesome!

  6. where do you live? i am coming to your house and stealing that $2 dollhouse. $2??!!!! KRAZY. with a KAPITOL K. why do I never find things like this? I bet charyty LOVES it :). Thanks for the link, girl! YOU are krazy kool.

  7. Yay for the's like winning tic tac toe! On a side note about misspelling for the sake of aliteration (I love real aliteration, but loathe misspelling for the sake of it), it makes me especially irritated when they already have aliteration naturally, but misspell to be kool like Custom Creations -> Kustom Kreations. Yes, I enjoyed the link to Jessica's blog and her comment :)

  8. um, you are super cool and preschool t ball is indeed a hilarious chart topper!


  9. That $2 garage sale find...amazing! My kids would love it! But I know we don't need another darn toy! haha!

  10. The correct terminology for Jon would be "friend girl". At least that is what I called my friend in grade school that was a girl. That way there is no confusion with her being a girlfriend, right?
