as for other things going on around's a big day because Kyle is going to "A Day Out with Thomas" with Grandpa and Daddy! He's more than a little excited and has been asking me to show him when on the calendar all the time. He's been telling people everywhere he goes lately too! I hope they have a good day and that it doesn't rain.

Nathan and I have the day to ourselves as a result, so I think I'm going to try and get a few things done that I couldn't otherwise since I'll have the car today too. Might try and get a little scrapping in at some point too if I can - maybe when Nathan has his nap. I'm sure the house will be calling me to do a little cleaning/picking up too especially since I worked the last 2 nights and that doesn't usually bode well for the house I'm afraid.

We did manage to get out of our jammies yesterday and went for a walk in the drizzle. Couldn't go to the park since everything was wet, but it was good to get some exercise and fresh air. A we're walking, Kyle says to me "What do you want to be when you grow up?". Well, I stifled a giggle at the question and nice to know he thinks I'm not grown up yet! Anyway, this is some of the conversation that ensued:

Kyle: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Me: A mummy
Kyle: NO! Really!
Me: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Kyle: A player
Me: (insert giggle) What kind of player?
Kyle: A spin the wheel player.
Me: Oh you want to be a game show player!?
Kyle: YEAH!! What do you want to be when you grow up? (question again!)
Me: A teacher.
Kyle: No way! Are you a teacher?
Me: Yes. What do you want to be when you grow up?
Kyle: A soccer player.

This conversation went around and around about 5 or 6 times and every time I asked what he wanted to be, I got a different answer. I love these conversations that just pop up.

Well, better run for now! Have a great day!

Great list Colleen! I've been enjoying reading the lists all over the place! I gotta try it too!

P.S How did "a day with Thomas" go? I want to bring my son to it this summer in Ottawa. Let me know pretty please and show us some pictures!

That is my type of coffee! I only use french vanilla creamer.

I'm in Seattle now, and it is like the coffee capital of the world. I have been stopping to buy coffee almost every single day since we've been here!

Even the scrapbook stores here serve coffee. I just bought some twill tape that completely matches the paper you used. Good stuff.

LOVE the LO{and the coffee}Thanks for playing!

the Scattergories (hope I got the spelling right ... LOL!) is fun! And I loved those conversations with my kids too. How nice that you can write them down. Wish I had back when ...
